About this listing
Recently restored, the Bed&Breakfast Al Canal is an oasis of tranquillity and peace in the heart of Venice, the Giudecca island, out of the crowded and noisy touristic itineraries.
In 15 minutes you can reach St. Mark square, train station, piazzale roma or tronchetto parking car station by waterbus that runs every 10 minutes.
The B&B is named "al Canal" since it faces a large canal and is located on the ground floor of a typical Venetian 17th century building.
2 double-bedded rooms (extra bed on request), fully furnished with linen and towels, can accomodate single guest or families (cribs and extra-bed available).
The spacious bathroom with shower is shared by the guests.
A Venetian courtyard welcomes the guests with its beautiful flowers: an ideal place for relaxing with a drink after a day of sightseeing.
Continental breakfast is included and during the warm season it can be served in the garden.
The B&B al Canal is an ideal place where to spend a vacation in a quiet and economic way, here you get to know a popular and genuine Venice. It is personally run by the owner, a “pure venetian” lady who will provide you with suggestions about the most secret and magical parts of the city, where everything is art.

Francesca nous a fait un très bon accueil et donné de très bon conseils de restaurants. Résider sur l'île de Giudecca est vraiment plaisant et se réveiller avec vue sur le canal vous mets tout de suite dans l'ambiance vénitienne.
Francesca was a very welcoming host and provided daily breakfast of toast, coffee and yoghurt which we enjoyed and would welcome us home with chilled water everyday. The view from the canal room was excellent and the area was peaceful in the evening. Transport to the main tourist destinations were easily reachable by an enjoyable 30-40min vaporetto ride. As with most of Venice, there were some mosquitoes but Francesca provided mosquito sticks to help. The bathroom is shared with guests in the garden room but this was not an issue for us. Francesca tidied and aired the room daily while we were out. All in all, good accommodation if you enjoy bed and breakfast.
Its a lovely place to stay to explore Venice and easily accessible by waterbus. Francesca is a great host, made us feel very welcome and gave us great tips on exploring the islands. The accommodation is very clean and tidy, and the morning breakfast was simple with lovely coffee and refreshing juice. Thoroughly recommended! Go for the canal view room - its like living like a local!! Thank you Francesca for taking great care of us!!
Staying with Francesca was a pleasure and made our Venice break all that much better. The location was exactly want we wanted, more local and less crowded, reflected exactly by the pictures on the site.
Francesca was a lovely host, she was extremely helpful with water taxi directions, restaurant recommendations and providing a map of the area with best ways to explore where we wanted to go. Breakfast in the morning was great, just what we needed to get going in the heat.
I would definitely stay there again.
My fiance and I stayed with Francesca for two nights while touring the city of Venice. Francesca was a FANTASTIC host, who made us feel very welcome right from the start. The few days we were there it was incredibly hot (95F both days), but by the canal with the windows open it was very comfortable. Francesca also made sure we had cold water straight from the fridge whenever we were hanging out at the room. She also prepared a nice breakfast each morning, which was enjoyed in the beautifully landscaped courtyard outside the apartment.
It's important to note that this room is probably 30min from the main attractions in Venice, on the nice quiet island of Giudecca. This was actually a very welcome break from the hectic tourist-filled areas of the main island, and it was nice to come home to a quiet room right on the canal.
I highly recommend Francesca to anyone looking to stay in Venice, you won't be disappointed!
This is a wonderful b&b. We loved staying here. The location is perfect to explore venice. It is very easy and quick to take the waterbus to the city center. Francesca is a lovely host. Her recommendations about things to see (or skip) and restaurants were fantastic. She is a warm person that really tries to make your stay as nice as possible. The room with the view on the canal is just lovely (this room can become a bit hot in the late afternoon but with the fan it is really ok and the temperature during the night is really oké). Breakfast is included. We recommend this b&b!
Really calm and cosy place. Straight forward hostress that speaks excellent English and supplies lot of fresh water - a bare necessity.
