Ca'Riccio - at home in Venezia :-)

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 21, 2007

Ca’Riccio is a lovely B&B or guesthouse, located in the upper (second) floor of an old Venetian house in eastern Can(n)aregio. It was restored in 2004 and offers everything you need for relaxing after the long walks in the city.
They have 8 rooms, mostly located in the northern wing (with windows to the south), and one (where I stayed, photo 1) in the southern wing, where the breakfast and relaxing part is. But this wing is separated from the common rooms, so I had my own area with bathroom and bedroom. Bed was heavenly hard/firm, which made me even more happy (I just hate these soft beds). It was very much quiet up there, and I could sleep with open window (no mosquitos at this time of 2007, or they didn’t get up that high).

What I really loved was the elevated area in the breakfast room (photo 2), nice and comfy sofas for relaxing and reading. They didn’t have books up there, but will have over the course of time (if Cristiano, the owners’ son, who literally eats books, won’t have a hand on them, lol). The breakfast room itself is very much comfy as well, small tables and nice furniture and it was very much relaxing to have breakfast here in the mornings.

Unique Quality: Breakfast is included in the room rate, but, for those of you who expect huge breakfasts as in other countries – sorry, this is a typical Veneziano B&B, and breakfast is in Venezia style, with coffee (whatever style you want), orange juice and a cornetto (croissant type, filled with delicious marmelade) and yoghurt. Why else are Italians not that fat – they don’t stuff in all different kinds of things into their stomachs in the morning. I myself was well-fed with my breakfasts.

Room rates are according to their website. Note that there is low season and high season (the dates described on the site).

Whatever they describe on their website is true. They are very much guest oriented – ask for something and you get it. The whole family, Lidia, Paolo and Cristiano, know so much about their beloved city and will be happy to tell you tales and stories and of course give you recommendations of where to go (sights, restaurants, etc).

Location: it is quite easy to find: if you start from Fondamente Nuovo, walk east and then into the forth calle (a tiny one) from your right (between the 2 bridges are 5 calles). Continue straight ahead until you arrive at a small campo. Keep left and continue walking left until you see a canale in front of you. Careful, if you continue to walk straight, you will fall in the canale which would be he sign that you went too far. It is the fourth door on your left (before the canale), look for the sign Ca’Riccio at the door (small but easy to see).

Oh, and in case the ever present forum mobsters will come across the same photos I am adding here on Ca’Riccio’s website – bad luck, haha ! I am preparing a CD for them and give them permission to use my photos.

Ca'Riccio is the best!

The Riccio family is the best!
Christiano makes you feel right at home.
The hotel is quaint and conveniently located, about a 10 minute walk to San Marco and 5 minutes to the ferry at Fundamente Nove.
The rooms are extremely nice and very, very clean.
Breakfast is 5 star including cappucino, croissants, yogurt, and juice.
There is a little stocked refrigerator in every room and also a safe.
You can come and go as you please and the people who stay there tend to be civilized and respectful.
The hotel is renovated with beautiful ceramic tiles.
We just loved it so much that we went back a second time for 2 additional nights!

Romantic environment as well.
If you want peace and quiet and great service, this is the place to go!

Unique Quality: Enter on the 2nd floor.
Renovated, extremely clean.
Wonderful breakfast delivered directly to your room.
