Property description

When I saw this apartment it was “love at first sight”. Then, little by little, I discovered its secrets; the interior feels a part of the Campo dei Frari. The sunlight, the colours at sunset, the sounds of the people, the gondoliers‘ chatting and the music of the street performers keep you company, but they are never too invasive, and at night it is tranquil. You have the impression of being in the middle of a Goldoni play as privileged spectators.
The décor is chosen with care, I wanted it to mirror Venice: the skyline of the 1700 roofs along the Grand Canal has been painted on the furniture; the Murano chandelier has been transformed into a floor lamp; a coffee table has images of water reflections; and the walls covered by unique photographs, taken by the official photographer of the Venice film festival: Andrea Vezzù; they link everything together.
Looking at the light reflecting from the stones of the Frari, one is taken back to the time when this large space was donated to the Franciscan friars for them to build their monastery.
The large seven south facing windows fill the apartment with light and give you a unique view of the Campo dei Frari and the church, with its wonderful altar piece of The Assumption by Titian. The north facing windows overlook the small and picturesque Campo Zen.
At one time the house was owned by a German inventor of games, then it was occupied by a French writer, who lived here for more than 10 years. Maybe it is their positive presence which still gives the apartment its unique atmosphere.
The location between Accademia and Rialto is perfect to reach all of the places of interest, either on foot or by vaporetto (water bus). The vaporetto stop of St Tomà is two minutes walk, from here you can reach anywhere in Venice, the lagoon and the islands. Nearby there is also the St Tomà traghetto that will give you a gondola ride across the Grand Canal for a more 2 euro. The area is full of excellent restaurants but if you want to do some self catering, there is a supermarket less than 100 yards away. Many places are an easy walk: the famous Scuola San Rocco, with its Tintoretto paintings, is less than two minute’s walk; San Marco 15 minutes; the railway and bus stations 10 minutes.

visit the secret itineraries in the Doge's Palace and have a unforgetable immagine of the Basilica San Marco illuminated from inside (by 11:30 to 12:30) is a must. For the sports people I suggest a row in a typical venetian rowing boat with Jane. Other way to know the spirit of our place is to partecipate to a traditional fishing in the lagoon. If you intend to move out of Venice for few hours, i suggest to visit Valsanzibio, one of the best european garden.
