Description from manager

One of our favorite areas of Venice, Cannaregio is the "local" district, less touristy, the place where resident Venetians live. You can find lots of good food and apparel shops, markets, even the restaurants and bars are reasonable! The Cannaregio canal is the second widest in Venice, and joins the Grand Canal on the south end to the northern lagoon. A lively, interesting area, served by the public transport Vaporetto line n.1 along the Grand Canal, or the so called "Gira Città" routes n. 41, 42, 51 and 52 along the northern end.

The Gradenigo apartment is located in the heart of the Cannaregio district, thus very central, only 3-4 minute walk to the Cà D'Oro Vaporetto stop (particularly recommended if you arrive by train or car) and to the Madonna dell'Orto Alilaguna stop (very convenient direct water transport if you land at the Marco Polo Airport), even if our personal suggestion is to spoil yourself taking a private water taxi that drops you off directly in front of the entrance door of the apartment!

The Gradenigo is a privileged accommodation to us as it has many pros and few cons, starting from the huge living space: it is laid out on about 200 square meters on two levels offering total comfort, privacy and quietness. On the 3rd level there are main living room, dining room with a large extensible table, a super kitchen adequate for the toughest chef performances, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a big walk in wardrobe, a second bedroom with en-suite bathroom that can be used as twin or double. On the attic level there are a second spacious living room with double pull-out bed, kitchenette and a table for 4 people, a third double bedroom, a third bathroom and the laundry room. The attic can be considered the dependence of the main level, completely independent from it, or can be used as extra sleeping space for groups of up to 9 people (the house is recommended for 6-8 people, if you are 9 there is a little extra charge).

Another plus of the Gradenigo apartment is with no doubt the spectacular views enjoyable on every direction: it faces south on Rio de la Misericordia and north on beautiful Italian style gardens and on the lagoon, while faces east and west on the roof-tops and bell towers including San Marco, particularly from the attic windows. For the same reason the apartment is very bright and endowed with good cross ventilation (please make sure you keep windows closed when away from home!).

Least but not last, the technologic equipment of the house is very good: there is Wi-Fi internet connection, 42" flat-screen TV with DVD palyer, Hi-Fi audio system, Miele dishwasher, washing machine, Whirlpool 2-doors fridge and freezer with ice maker, oven, microwave, 5 burners gas stove, etc.

The only downside is possibly the number of steps to reach the apartment, about 60, even if the stairway is very large and not steep at all. We recommend the apartment to both families and group of friends, with the only exclusion of small children as furniture and flooring can be damaged quite easily.

Additional amenities include: iron & ironing board, bathtub, autonomous heating, cd player, smoking not permitted, hairdryer, very spacious, panoramic view.
