About our home

Escape the throngs of San Marco in this bright, updated 1 BR Cannaregio loft home. Airy and spacious, the BR is equipped with a queen bed; there is also a 2nd single bed-mattress and toilet in the low, upstairs loft.

The flat is at the end of a quiet calle and has a private entrance (which is covered, by the way, providing instant refuge from the occasional rain shower). It is located one floor up (1st/European, 2nd/North American) with 15 stairs. It is also on the top floor, so there is no one above you. The entrance is just off the Orto canal.

You can easily walk anywhere in the city, but you are also handy to vaporetto stops Madonna dell'Orto (one stop Alilaguna to the airport), Ca' d'Oro, and San Marcuola, and even the Guglie stop. The fondamenta Misericordia, full of wonderful restaurants and wine bars for an active night-life, is just around the corner for easy access, and easy return to your quiet refuge.

This is a very Venetian flat: the kitchen is compact but well-equipped, though there is no dishwasher. There is a washing machine but no dryer, so if you do laundry, you'll hang your clothes to dry on the line outside the windows.

This is a smart home, with the thermostat and entrance key controlled by cell phone apps (though you will also have physical keys available).

IMPORTANT: This is my personal residence and as such will be available only when I am away. I will indicate definitively available dates in green on the calendar, but my travel plans are often last minute, so it's difficult to plan long range. Please take this into consideration when you request.

Please note that there is a 50 euro cleaning fee. A damage deposit may be required depending on the length of your stay.

Where is it?


The Fondamenta Misericordia is teeming with all the eating and drinking options you could ever hope for, along with our favorite ferramenta (hardware store), and not one, but several grocery stores. It's near the Jewish Ghetto (be sure to take the marvelous tour and visit the museum there) and the Madonna dell'Orto church.

You're also handy to 3 vaporetto stops, and not more than a single 25-minute Alilaguna ride from the Orto stop to the airport, after that it's a 6 minute walk and one bridge to the apartment.
