Review 5485: Owner, Cannaregio Canal View (#p802960)


Review by Foodmuse from PA

2bed/1bath apartment in Cannaregio, Venice


Nov 7th- Nov 14th 2012, 1 week


My husband and I found Attilia's flat through Homeaway. We stayed in her first floor flat (second floor American) for one week in November.

Beautiful views from the balconies - overlooking a lovely little canal and the side calle street. We watched many merchants unload their boats just outside of the apartment each morning to supply local fruit stands and shops and even Coop.

The apartment was about a 10 minute walk from the Vaporetto C'a Doro station.

Nearby Amenities

There is a Coop market within a three minute walk of the apartment - so very convenient. Fruit stand just and the end of our Calle - awesome. Amazing little wine shop around the corner.

Restaurants, gelato, enoteca - all within a 10 minute walk or closer.

One of our favorite hangouts became La Cantina - 10 minute walk from the apartment. Great wine offerings, great cicchetti, great prices, great people watching, friendly staff.

The House/Apartment

Building in excellent shape. Apartment was peaceful and quiet. This apartment was on the first floor - second floor American. There are four floors in the apartment and the owner also rents out the fourth floor Penthouse apartment.


Three balconies, beautiful view of the little canal and the calle. No garden or other outside sitting area - other than the balconies.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Furniture was great shape and comfortable. Very clean. Dining Room for six guests.

Lots of towels, pillows, blankets. Lots of lights throughout the apartment. Extra paper towels, extra towels, extra toilet paper. The apartment offered an easy to control heat source.

The living room was equipped with a satellite tv. The sofa was comfy after long days of walking hours and hours. Again - we appreciated the lighting in this apartment - great for reading. Lot of tourist books available in the apartment too. The apartment had WiFi.


Two bedrooms - each double. One bath. All excellent condition. Hot water all times of day - excellent shower/tub with partial enclosure which we really liked. The bedding was comfortable and spacious with lots of closet space. The little terrace overlooking the canal was lovely.


The kitchen was great. Full size refrigerator, oven, gas stove top with four burners, plates, utensils, pots, pans, knives, toaster, espresso maker (although it was a tiny one) wine bottle openers, tea towels, paper towels, dishwasher, dish liquid ... it was absolutely not missing a thing.

I wish we had the opportunity to cook more while we were there - the dining room was spacious and lovely.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Greeted by an English speaking friend of the owner. Attilia extremely prompt in responding and very helpful. She does a great job with this rental.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Would definitely recommend this apartment to good friend and family. It was perfect for us. Even with the acqua alta experience (no incidence with the apartment) we had an excellent stay in Venice.

Things to do in this area

We loved La Cantina in Cannaregio.
