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.

Francesca is a wonderful host. Her house is beautiful. My room was overlooking a canal and she has arranged it so that I will eat breakfast overlooking it. It was very nice and serene. It is conveniently located less than a kilometer from a water bus station (she explained exactly how to get there) and is located in a nice quiet residential area- away from the crowds, exactly as I wanted. I definitely recommend her home to anyone staying in Venice.
Francesca is a wonderful host. And this place is as serene and tranquil as the pictures make it seem. Guidecca is away from the tourists in Venice and is calm, peaceful, and relaxing.
WE stayed 4 nights at Francesca's house in the Canal view room.
It was A Nice room, the breakfast was good too.
Giudecca is a Nice place to stay, 5 minutes in vaporetto from Saint Marc, very quiet.
I recommend this guesthouse.
We were very pleased with our stay at Francesca's. The accommodation was clean, convenient and comfortable. Francesca was a great hostess and went out of her way to make our time in Venice pleasurable and fun. Highly recommended.
Francesca arranged for someone to meet us and show us the room, which was exactly as seen in the photographs.
She was very helpful with advice about transport (even writing out the instructions for our early morning trip to the airport) and local restaurants. The bed was comfortable and the room was quite spacious. The bathroom was clean, our bed was made each day for us which was a surprise.
This was a quiet place to stay, away from the crowds on the main island but the vaporetto made it really easy to travel all over.
Thanks for hosting us Francesca.

Francesca is a very welcoming host and she will gives you lots of tips to navigate Venice. Her house garden is super charming and a real plus to ressource before and after visiting the crowded city center. The room is quite cosy and bathroom in an excellent state.
This was a great B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Francesca, who was a friendly and helpful host. It was lovely to stay right on a canal, giving us a real "Venice" feeling right when we arrived. Guidecca Island was so handy, an easy waterbus ride to anywhere in Venice. We stayed at Al Canal because it had been recommended to us by friends who had stayed there a couple of years ago, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to other friends.
