The Space

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.

Situato alla Giudecca, una parte ancora genuina e tranquilla della città, il B&B al Canal offre, com' è nella vera tradizione del b&b, all'interno di una casa privata due comode stanze matrimoniali (o doppie) e, a seconda delle esigenze, è possibile aggiungere un letto.
Un ampio, confortevole bagno con vasca e doccia è in comune per le due stanze.
Le camere sono pulite, accoglienti e molto tranquille; una si affaccia sul canale dei lavraneri mentre l'altra si apre su una tipica corte veneziana che è il giardino del b&b.
Nella bella stagione è piacevole prendere la colazione e pianificare la giornata seduti ai tavolini del giardino.
La titolare del b&b è sempre disponibile ad offrire informazioni e suggerire percorsi ed itinerari per godere al meglio questa magica città

  • We just stayed with Francesca on our first visit to Venice and it was great! She gave us restaurant recommendations right when we arrived, and one of them ended up being our favorite! The house was very clean, exactly like the pictures show. The shared bathroom was also very clean, and sharing was never a problem. She accommodated our schedule each day, serving a lovely breakfast of toast, croissants, fresh jam, and coffee/tea in the garden. The location was perfect. It was very nice to be away from central Venice, which is always filled with crowds of tourists, and it was very easy and quick to get from Giudecca to Venice proper via vaporetto. When Francesca was away for a couple days, her friend Ana substituted in and took fantastic care of us too. Would highly recommend staying here and we plan to stay again if we return to Venice.

  • We had a wonderful time at the B&B. We had an early flight and Francesca helpfully allowed us to check in early. The room was spotless, large and comfortable. We shared a bathroom with a couple for one night but didn't ever see them. The location is perfect- close to all of our favourite parts of Venice and away from the tourists. It takes 15 mins to get to Academia, our favourite spot. Francesa was super friendly and welcoming, and I felt comfortable enough to relax in the garden one afternoon when I needed a rest from sightseeing. Breakfast was superb and taken in the lovely garden. Highly recommend!

  • Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in Venedig. Besonders gut gefallen hat uns die Lage von Francescas Unterkunft. Weg vom Touritrubel und strategisch prima gelegen. Francesca ist eine zuvorkommende nette Gastgeberin, die auch Wünsche ausserhalb der Buchung erfüllt.
    Wir würden jederzeit dort wieder buchen!

  • We had a lovely stay at Franseca's B&B. She is very helpful and welcoming. The day we arrived, it was a holiday in Italy and most of the places were closed. But following Francesca's suggestion, we were able to find a good place to eat. Her directions were very clear.

    We loved our stay at her place!

  • Me and my friend had a wonderful time at Fransesca's beautiful place. We enjoyed every minute of the lovely city, and everything worked out perfectly with transportation ect. As a host Fransesca was amazing. She was very helpful when we asked for directions to nearby restaurants, gelato places and so on. Perfect stay!

  • We had a great time at B&B Canal Venice and I would recommend it to every traveler:)

    Francesca was able to provide nice tips about the city, what pass to buy, where to eat, etc. She was very welcoming and available. The instruction she sent us to reach the place were very clear.

    We got the "garden" room, with two windows on the house's garden, very relaxing and nice light in the morning. The room was cozy and comfortable, perfect for a good night after exhausting days :) There is another room in the house, with a view on the canal, maybe even more romantic, especially in summer. We took all our breakfast in the garden, it was really nice.

    La Giudecca is a long island just in front of the "main" island of Venice. It was an old industrial area, much more authentic, with few tourist, nice restaurants... and still a lot of canal to visit! We loved to stay here.
    Great to get out of the crowd and see something more "Italian".
    It is very convenient to reach the heart of Venice. Bus boats will bring you at St Marc in 15min (day and night). La Giudecca is well connected to the city and by staying here you can have a better overview of Venice.
    You can even enjoy a drink with an amazing view at the hotel Hilton Molino Stucky, right behind Francesca’s place. It was built in an old pasta and flour factory, nice to visit :)

  • Francesca was a wonderful hostess. She gave us perfect directions to her B&B and we were there in no time from the train station. It is only a short vaporreto trip from the station and less than a 5 minute walk to the B&B.
    Francesca's place was spotlessly clean and nice and cosy. A light breakfast is provided right to your room by Francesca at what ever time you prefer between 8 and 10 am. Her little back garden is a real treat as well.
    Francesca can give you perfect directions for anywhere in Venice. She knows the city well and can supply excellent advice on what to see and where to eat.
    The isle of Guidecca where the B&B is located is away from the crowds and nice an quiet after a busy day of seeing the sight. The are several nice restaurants with in walking distance.
    We very much enjoyed our stay with Francesca and recommend it highly.

  • Francesca's place is comfortable, charmingly decorated and good location. There's garden in the house's area and the other side is the small canal. The garden must be very nice in the summer. (We went there in winter, so is the different moods. From the house can walks just a few minutes to the boat station that you can see the the whole city from there, very beautiful. Internet quite slow in the bedroom, but you can find the right spot to sit and use it. so its not a really problems for us.

  • Couldn't be more perfect, the house with lots of plants and trees in the courtyard put you in a totally relaxed state, quiet island away from the crazy mobs of tourists swarming on the main island. Great host, gives lost of info about the places around, she even gives you a guide. We will definitely book our time there with the first chance.
