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!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was so easy to book. Eva made it very simple. And getting to the spartment was made easy as Ms. Tanya retrieved us at the water taxi stop when we arrived. It was really nice to have a full apartment to stay in with a kitchen, living room and bedroom to move around in. Plenty of room for the two of us. Wifi worked great, too. The location was the best...less than 10 min to St Marks square...and the same to the Rialto Bridge area...we walked everywhere. We stayed 4 nights and it was a great! The stairs are steep, but I am 65 and had no trouble at all. We would recommend the place to everyone.

A delightful place!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was nice and spacious. It overlooked a delightful restaurant (which had wonderful food, too!), but the noise wasn't a problem. The location was great--far enough off the main canal to avoid huge crowds but also a quick walk to St. Mark's Square. Only thing that would have been nice was some instructions for the washer--it was a bit confusing :)

Great location for exploring Venice

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was clean and in a great location for our 2 day trip exploring Venice. Quick easy access to a water taxi and good restaurants and provides a solid launching point for daily explorations. The wi-fi was reliable and we loved the folder with tips, suggestions, and information about the area.

Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Ca' Luna. The flat is charming, spacious, and comfortable. Air conditioning worked well, which was much appreciated given the hot summer temps. Location is quite nice, in a pretty street just a short walk from San Marco Square and other major sights. As others have mentioned, we were happy to have Tanja meet us at the vaporetto stop because it would have been quite a challenge to find the apartment on our own, as is the case with many places in Venice! Eva was lovely to do business with, and we would happily rent from her again.
