The apartment "Ca'Preziosa" occupies a central yet remarkably quiet location in the district of Cannaregio, a few steps away from the famous Church of the Miracles, a 5 minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge and a 10 minutes walk from San Marco square. The Arsenale and the Gardens of the Biennale can be reached by foot in less than 15 minutes, and by boat in about 20 minutes.
"Fondamente Nove" is the nearest Vaporetto stop, less than 100 meters away. "Fondamente Nove" is a pick-up point for the motorboat service "Alilaguna " which connect the international airport "Marco Polo" to the city of Venice, and a stop for Vaporetto 42 or 52 to and from the railway Station or Piazzale Roma. The islands of Murano, Burano or Torcello can also be reached with boats who stop at "Fondamente Nove".
The neighborhood offers a variety of restaurants, supermarkets, cafés, boutiques, clothing shops and grocery stores.
On request, we will be very pleased to organize your personal transfer to the apartment.
Our family stayed at Ca'Prezioso for four days and our experience was generally excellent. The apartment was spacious and spotless, and while not as bright or dramatic as the photos suggest, is located only about 100 meters from a water taxi (vaporetto) stop at Fundamente Novo. Getting there from the airport by ferry was a snap thanks to Davide's detailed instructions. The apartment is on the other side of the island from the madness around San Marco (St. Marks) but you can walk there through the maze of streets in about 20 minutes or take the vaporetto. Walking is more interesting since you see things a tourist might otherwise not see. So: peace plus relative convenience.
Davide had left us a local map with directions to a coop market and some restaurants, so shopping and eating was a snap. There are several restaurants, a pizza place and gelateria on the Fundamente Novo, and having dinner or a drink as the sun set over the sea was great. We would stay there again in a flash.
The only negatives were the following: the apartment is not air conditioned, although there are several fans which helped cool things down. But we were there in the midst of a major heatwave, and although the apartment was relatively cool and dark, AC would have helped. Second, the WiFi signal in the apartment was very weak, and we had problems with that. Easy solved by getting a WiFi amplifier.
Davides appartment is in a fantastic location close to Fondamente Nuove vaporetto station on the quiet side of Venice. The appartment was clean and furnished with style. Davide gave us some great tips for lunch/dinner and how to find our way around. The appartment easily accommodated for the 6 of us. We can highly recommend this place for an unforgettable Venice experience.
Nice and quite. Well located - very near the Nouve (sp?) jetty and only a 10 minute stroll to St Marks Square. Supermarket, wine shop, bakery and local restaurants very near. Davide was an excellent host - so helpful. The flat itself was tidy but a little dark. Some brighter light bulbs would help. Overall, a great stay.
Davide was very helpful and attentive host. The apartment is neat, clean, and in a charming neighborhood away from the main tourist stops- which we preferred so we could experience the local culture! I have read many reviews regarding the walking in Venice, yet it was an easy walk to the main square. (And it was beautiful walking the narrow walkways and discovering small local shops, restaurants, bakeries and architecture!) There is a market, wine store, and pharmacy within walking distance. If you have difficulty navigating the streets, there is a Vaporetto (Water bus) stop within a block so one could transfer to other areas on Venice easily. Getting to the apartment with luggage was a short walk from the bus stop. Also, it is only 2 stops on the Vaporetto to Murano from this location. It is a first floor apartment, but locals were very conscious of noise level from 10pm- 8am so noise was minimal. We visited in June and the weather was beautiful, but there are fans in the apartment if needed. Our family of 4 (children ages 16 and 10) were very comfortable in the apartment. I would recommend this apartment!!
Excelente ubicación, limpieza, decoración y ambiente, no podíamos haber pedido mas éramos un grupo de 6 así que el doble baño estuvo perfecto. La anfitriona muy amable y amigable. 100% recomendada!!! Es mas bonita que en las fotos!!!
Wonderful stay! Davide and Alexandria were wonderful hosts. Communication was easy and we were met at the apartment late morning, where we were able to leave our bags while the apartment was cleaned. Lovely spacious first floor apartment, almost like new. Good beds and pillows, good showers and didn't run out of hot (email hidden)ere were 4 of us. 2 separate bedrooms and 2 separate bathrooms. Bathroom with basin, shower and toilet, second bathroom with toilet, basin and shower over bath. secure with fashionable style security bars on the windows and good door locks so no need for concern of belongings. Quiet area and excellent location, we walked to all the major attractions... Ie St Marks 20 mins and Ralto 15 Mins. 5 mins to several restaurants and 10 mins to supermarket. We found it easy to get to after Davide gave us instructions from the cruise ship terminal. Used a water us to get to appt and then caught a water taxi $65euros when we left to get to the train terminal. A fantastic stay, thanks so much you were both wonderful and would highly recommend to all our family and friends.
Nous sommes partis à Venise avec nos trois enfants donc cinq en tout dans l'appartement situé à Canreggio . L'appartement correspond exactement aux photos qui figurent sur le site airbnb et tout fonctionnait très bien ; il est en bon état et très propre .
David est très sympathique et disponible ; il nous a donné des adresses et des conseils utiles pour bien profiter de notre séjour à Venise .
L'appartement est très très bien situé dans un quartier pas trop touristique ( ca fait du bien après une visite à San Marco ) et près d'un arrêt de vaporetto .
Dans la quartier , il y'a plein de petits cafés , restais et commerces vraiment très sympas .
Nous nous sommes régalés .
Réservez sans hésiter , on a passé un séjour top
Merci encore David pour tout

About the Host, Davide
We are a Franco-Italian couple, which has been living in Venice for several years now (we precisely live at the Arsenale, Castello district).
We adore Venice; we like to eat (it’s really easy in Venice…we can recommend you very good restaurants). We are passionate about culture, art, music and our Venetian boat (a Sanpierota of 8 meters) but, above all, we are two tireless travelers (we too !).
We rent several apartments in the heart of Venice that we have to complete management. We will be honored to welcome you and provide you the best advice to enable you to spend unforgettable moments in the Serenissima.
Davide and Alessandra
