Was a bit difficult to find at first as it's down a narrow lane way but once you arrive you walk through a lovely little garden where there is a seating area. The room is under the house but very private. The bathroom is quite...More
I was already 15 times in this wonderful B & B and I was always very happy.
The beautiful garden, the tranquility, the friendly service and the charming Cannaregio:
I will always return!!!
I don't know a better place. :-)
This B&B has the potential to be fantastic, so it was all the more disappointing to discover that it wasn't.

Cannaregio is an good area to stay as it's away from the crowds, and this is a quiet corner. Like most Venetians, the family live on the first floor and above, so this ground floor room, more-or-less at canal level, is slightly damp. It's also...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
