Ca' Leonessa is a recently (2010) restored luxury first floor two double bedroom/ two bathroom apartment located in Dorsoduro in the heart of Venice. The apartment overlooks a quiet canal and a famous bridge (the Ponte dei Pugni) and the Campo San Barnaba (which featured as did the exterior of the apartment in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). It is a short walk from the bus and railway stations. Due to its superb location all the sites of Venice are either within walking distance or a couple of stops on the vaporetto (water bus).

The apartment has been sympathetically restored using high quality traditional Venetian materials and local craftsmen. In the furnishing of the apartment the prime consideration has been to create a comfortable and welcoming oasis for you after a busy days sight seeing in magical Venice.

....to stay in such a well equipped and comfortable apartment in such an ideal location. Away from the crowds of central Venice, Dorsoduro has much to recommend it and this apartment does too! Your own front door right onto a pretty canal, the vegetable barge just steps away and within a hundred metres are two bakeries, ice cream shop, supermarket...
