A lovely peaceful apartment in a busy city. Away from the busy tourist areas, but within easy walking distance to them all. Restaurants and bars nearby. Apartment is perfectly lovely and has a great view, right next to the water, with mountains in the distance. It has everything you could possibly need. The owner Elisa is so nice, and gave us lots of great advice on things to do, and places to eat, and drink. She met us on arrival, and took us back to the departure point on leaving. Could not find any fault with this place.
Elisa's apartment is not large but perfect in all ways I can think of: beautifully designed, with a lovely mix of old and new, quiet (double glazing), well stocked in the kitchen, comfortable beds, fabulous bathroom, spotlessly clean, all recently modernised, and real works of art on the walls. I stayed with a friend. She had the only bedroom (double) and I was on the sofa bed (double) in the living room. The flat is on the first floor of a restored old building in Canareggio with a view to the north and the snow covered Dolomite mountains over the sea The area is quiet and off the tourist track but easy to get to. Elisa provided very clear directions by email, then met us off the vaperetto and settled us in. She had a very organised book full of tips about where to go and local places to shop and eat. Perfetto.
Elisa’s apartment is beautifully designed and well equipped in a fantastic location on the water, facing Murano. If you are coming from the cruise terminal or going to the airport, the water bus stop is only a few feet away. Although the waterway outside is very busy, the apartment is very quiet. It was so nice to stay in a residential area of Venice away from the tourist crush. If we return to Venice, we would certainly stay here again.
The apartment in the Cannaregio district was very comfortable, with every attention to detail. Elisa was very helpful, met us at the vaporetto stop, even assisting us with our luggage. She was very helpful regarding what to see & do during our stay. Having visited this fabulous city some years ago, we thought the second time would be the last, but no. We will return to this lovely apartment again. We also liked the fact that we were staying in area, where Venetians live.
