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.
Leaflets and brochures are always available with informations about art shows, concerts, exibitions.
Internet wifi free connection.
A few years ago, I studied in Venice for 5 months and also lived on Giudecca. It is still my favorite part of the city. Back then, people who visited me stayed in hotels and most experiences were horrible (very little value for a lot of money). That's why I would recommend this place to everybody, it's like having your own Venetian home for an excellent price. Francesca is a very warm host, she took great care of us and the rooms are very clean. The area is very quiet at night, we were staying on the canal side and it was nice to see the boats sailing by in the morning. We liked the room a lot, it was very cosy with a great view. The breakfast in the morning was also nice, and especially big according to Italian standards. And we loved to stop in the morning near Vaparetto-stop Palanca for a nice cappuccino with a view on the city. If you are ever going to visit Venice and wish also to meet the locals, Francesca's house on Giudecca is the place to stay!
Francesca was a great host. She was very helpful and attentive to our needs. We had the Canal room which was great and added that much more to our stay. We didn't expect to be served breakfast every morning which was an added bonus as well.
Although it is a little more of a commute to the main island in Venice, it is worth it. It's a nice quite retreat from a day filled with crazy bumbling tourist on the main land.
I recommend staying with Francesca.
Francesca is an excellent host who made us feel comfortable and welcome at B&B AL CANAL. She knows Venice thoroughly and advised us about which boats to ride to get to our destinations. Our room was spacious and comfortable and we had a view of a small canal right out the window. We will stay here again when we return to Venice.
This is a lovely location with great breakfast and a very helpful host. Looking forward to the next stay in Venice.
Great view from a pretty room. We enjoyed Venice, the easy commute this location afforded us, and the talks with the energetic
We loved our room at Francesca's place. We had the canal room and had the most gorgeous view. Our room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom. we were also provided with clean towels.
Francesca was lovely and helpful. She also provided very clear directions as to how to get to her place which is great as Venice is a labrynth of tiny streets and laneways.
Her place is not on the main island but we liked this because it was quieter. It was really easy to get around with the water buses and they leave frequently and run 24/7.
We recommend this place for others looking to visit Venice
How wonderful to stay with Francesca - the garden is a beautiful sanctuary, the room lovely and freshly cleaned, the bathroom organized, and a nice size, with a tub/shower with great water pressure. I loved the location - which is quiet and a 5 min walk from the boat. Thank you Francesca - your warmth and welcoming spirit helped make my holiday! Michele
The Canal View is a lovely place to stay, very comfortable and easy location in Venice. Being just across the water from the main islands was a great decision, there are ample cafes and shops and easy transport to the major locations.
Francesca is a charming and helpful host, the location is clean and comfortable.
We could recommend evertime this very nice appartement! We had a canal-view and could enjoy our visit in venice :)) We had a great breakfast every morning and got some recommendations and insider-tipps from Francesca, which were vera usefull!
A great location, a very friendly host, a wonderful garden to have breakfast. We were deeply contended. Thanks Francesca
