Venise, Vénétie, Italie
There are very few Noble Floors in Venice that embody all you could desire of a luxury accommodation. This 16th Century Palazzo has among the most breathtaking views of the Grand Canal, a private water entrance that enables you to reach the house by water taxi (highly recommended!), precious Venetian furnishings and paintings while offering maximum comfort. Located in the heart of the historical center of Venice, close to San Tomà and the Rialto area, in the San Polo district which is our favorite part of the city for authentic Venetian dining and shopping experiences.
It is complex to describe the beauty of this house: the atmosphere and the genuine venetian hospitality is simply unique. The south facing tall windows on the Grand Canal confer to the house exceptional brightness. The perfectly preserved stuccoes and frescoes on the walls and ceilings portraying mythological scenes, the inimitable terrazzo flooring, the beautiful fabrics and precious art works add to the charm of this Palazzo and creates the atmosphere of old times.
The Serenissima can also be accessed by foot from the private court yard on the rear of the property. The San Tomà Vaporetto stop (ferry) and the Traghetto (Gondola) are only 2 minutes walk from the house which enables you to cross the Grand Canal and reach the San Marco district in about 5 minutes.
The Serenissima apartment is located on the second floor and is laid out on about 500 square meters. You will be welcomed in the striking entrance hall that leads to the splendid and comfortably furnished living rooms with ample windows and full length balcony on Grand Canal. We can arrange a delicious breakfast to be served (on request) in the elegant dining room. The owners are passionate hosts and can prepare a mouthwatering Italian lunch or dinner for you (must be planned in advance). This is pure indulgence in an idyllic setting! The kitchen is professionally equipped to the highest standard, there is a laundry room with a washer and dryer as well as a library room with Wi-Fi internet connection.
The north facing sleeping area is composed of four gracefully furnished double bedrooms, very comfortable and air-conditioned, serviced by two bathrooms, while a third gorgeous marble bathroom with bathtub is accessible from the living area. The house is ideal for 6 guests but there is plenty of room for an extra couple if requested. Please consider that the precious furniture of the Serenisssima is delicate, therefore not recommended for children.
