Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)

Ca’ Luna is a charming residential flat furnished in typical Venetian style and ideally located, just three minutes walking from Rialto Bridge and St. Mark Square, yet peaceful and romantic.

It’s a cozy home, bright and south-facing, overlooking on a beautiful vineyard and Palazzo Zorzi, second most important Unesco headquarter in the world!

The apartment is composed by a large bedroom with wardrobe, a spacious kitchen fully equipped where you will find everything you may need to enjoy your stay, a very comfortable bathroom with shower and washing machine and a wide living-room where we settled a very comfortable sofa bed, a tv set and a nice library! We also have an extra bed that can be places both in the bedroom or in the living room: there will be plenty of room in any case.

The apartment has been carefully restored in 2006, with oak-beamed ceiling and wooden floors and it’s very functional. It’s approx. 60 sqm. and it’s perfect for up to 5 guests. It’s very comfortable, having air-conditioning, independent heating and free WIFI internet.

The house is in a strategic position to enjoy the most romantic city in the world.

At an easy reach from the public boat stop and right at the back of St. Marco’s church, Ca’ Luna is located in the Sestiere of Castello in a secret part of the city, so mysterious and silent that you feel in a different world!

THE AREA

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri of Venice. The district grew up from the thirteenth century around a naval dockyard, which became the largest naval complex in Europe (called Arsenale), and the monasteries in the north of the quarter. It was later altered by Napoleon, who planned what are now the Biennale Gardens.

Most interesting attractions in Castello are the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo build in 1368 hosting 25 dogi’s graves, ancient leaders of the Serenissima, the church of San Giorgio dei Greci, the Campo Santa Maria Formosa, the Church of La Pietà and the Church of San Zaccaria.

In the area, are also located the most beautiful and picturesque Venetian palazzi, like Palazo Quercini Stampalia.

Not to be missed in Venice:

Basilica of San Marco: overwhelming and seducing church, with its “campanile”, that you must climb to enjoy the most gorgeous view of the city.

Gallerie dell'Accademia: proposing the world's best collection of Venetian painting.

Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari: of Venice's many gorgeous churches, this cannot be missed, with its important works by Titian.

Cruising the Grand Canal: whether seen by gondola or by water bus or taxi, Venice's Main Street is something breath-taking.

Snacking at a bacaro: the best way to taste genuine Venetian food and feel like a native, is to head for one of the typical wine bars.

Ghetto: the ancient Jewish area is one of the most striking and secret places in town.

You can enjoy this and more in our amazing city. I’ll be glad to give you more hints!

Great location, roomy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Eva's apartment. It's much bigger than we expected with a kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, bathroom, and then the shower is in the bathroom but kind of around the corner. The location is fantastic. We were a short walk away from St. Mark's and one of our favorite museums was less than 5 minutes away. We had an easy time spending days exploring only what we could get to on foot in a 15 minute walk radius of the apartment, and we still didn't get to everything. Eva's suggestions were thorough and wonderful - we especially loved her suggestions for sightseeing with kids (we don't have any but my husband said they made him wish she wrote some for adults too!). Two thumbs up.

Venice holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed this property. It was really close to everything, just a short walk to St. Marco's square yet it was so quiet. It was very spacious and was nice to go back to a few times a day to get away from bustle of all the crowds. Eva was very helpful whenever we had a question and emailed us back promptly. She also provided a good Venice map along with a binder of information about restaurants and sights in Venice. All in all this apartment exceeded our expectations.

The apartment was just as described, Charming !

Apartment was immaculate with an old Venetian feel right in the heart of Venice surrounded by wonderful restaurants within minutes walk.

The apartment was very roomy , had everything you could need for a long stay if required, Eva thought of everything,

The Bed was comfortable , shower was nice and big with plenty of hot water .

Eva was very helpful with advise and directions, she had someone meet us at our stop and take us back to the apartment, which believe me is a must .

Thank you Eva was all your help , apartment was Great

Right in the heart of what you want !!!

  • 5 of 5

Look, when you come to Venice, you will walk your legs off (if you don't already know that!) Well, although this sweet place is not all that close to the train station, it is centrally-hubbed (i just made that word up) to the two big bridges that cross the grand canal and a few blocks IN from the grand canal (you want that too, unless you want the constant flood of cruise-ship folk all up in your path). It had so much more than we could use. We didn't cook, but could have (everything was there for that!) We didn't spend much time lounging (just napping from exhaustion). And, by the way, it was either all the walking and wine OR it was a real comfortable bed that can be a King or a set of twins. I am a snob when it comes to beds away and expected this one (at best) to be adequate. Wrong. I slept like a baby. Again, maybe walking and wine added to it, but who cares? Lastly, Eva was delightful and assisting in ways I will trust to her. I now think every Venitian is as cool as her.

Beatiful Venice Appartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Eva's apartment. It was perfect for our family - beautiful and centrally located. Eva is very easy communicate with and a great host. Her friend met us at a water bus stop and showed us the apartment. They also provided a map of the area, which is extremely helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place to our family and friends!

Beautiful clean apartment in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was amazing. It was actually a lot bigger than we thought it would be. The location was amazing too, right in the heart of Venice.The owners were so nice and gave us great information that helped us plan our trip. And as soon as our plane landed the owners were in contact with us. Then when we got off at the boat stop closest to the apartment, they met with us and took us to the apartment and explained everything to us. We had such a great experience. We will definitely be seeing them again!
