About this listing
The palazzetto has a private garden and is located in a charming campiello with a fountain and a lively neighborhood cafe. It is a lovely 10 minute walk from the Accademia Bridge. The San Basilio and Ca'Rezzonico vaporetto stops are 10 minutes away. The house is near the Church of San Nicolo' dei Mendicoli, one of the oldest in Venice, and near the venerable school of Architecture at Universita' Ca' Foscari. This is a vibrant Venetian neighborhood where savvy travelers can immerse themselves in true Venetian life.
The palazzetto is completely restored with careful attention to traditional Venetian materials and architectural details. The third floor entrance features traditional Venetian tiles in Sienna red and cream with beautiful wood floors throughout the apartment. The beamed ceilings in this house make staying here an authentic Venetian experience. Selected pieces of my painting and photography collection are on display. An antique Venetian mirror hangs in the salotto.
Up 10 steps from the second floor, with its own private entrance, the third floor sleeps 2-4 people. It occupies the entire floor of the building providing a light and airy atmosphere with good cross ventilation. The master bedroom has a double bed OR two singles and features beautiful etched windows. It overlooks the private garden and is very quiet. The European style lavender mosaic bathroom has elegant appointments.
The marble kitchen is in one corner of the salotto. This room, with two day beds and a crystal dining table for 6, is spacious and has its own elegant gray bath across the private hall. Out the double windows, you have a view of the Riello and the local life that passes through it. A stay in this truly beautiful space enfolds you in the luxury of Venice.
The house manager will greet you and acquaint you with the neighborhood and residents so you feel at home right away.
Weekly maid service included.
