A fine spacious residence of understated elegance - an impressively proportioned apartment for six, beautifully presented in classic style and offering contemporary appeal with period touches plus a truly enviable dual aspect covered terrace/loggia in the charming and characterful Cannaregio district.
Affording three couples privacy and room to ‘spread out’, the stylish and thoughtfully decorated accommodation is on the second floor served by lift, features attractive wooden parquet floors in most rooms plus Wi-Fi internet connection for keeping in touch and offers air-conditioning .
The main sitting/dining room (dramatically painted a bold and passionate shade of red) remains light and airy courtesy of its many windows and features interesting artwork, elegantly upholstered seating, a feature fireplace (for decorative purposes only) and two full length glazed doors leading out onto the large terrace/loggia.
A perfect spot for soaking up the atmosphere or chilling out with an ‘aperitivo’ before heading out to dinner, this splendid extra ‘room outdoors’overlooks the private courtyard garden of the well-regarded neighbouring Giorgione Hotel on one side (with a view of the bell tower and onion dome of the church of Santi Apostoli against the sky in the distance) and the thriving little thoroughfare named the ‘Rio Tera Dei Franceschi’ with its small cinema on the other.
To the rear of the apartment and near the main entrance hall is the modern well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room featuring sleek white units, matt black worktops and splashback and a glass-topped table with matching perspex chairs - handy for keeping your designated chef company and for grabbing ‘prima colazione’at the start of the day.
There are three delightful double bedrooms, each with a double bed which can be made into twins for added versatility (simply ask when booking) - an extremely elegant master bedroom of generous proportions, beautifully furnished with period pieces and which has its own sitting area and smart tiled bathroom in neutral tones with bathtub and shower over, an equally lovely and roomy second (also with a sitting area of its own) and a third, which although smaller, has the added benefit of a modern en-suite bathroom with shower plus direct access onto a small internal terrace. A third modern bathroom with shower completes the accommodation.
An exciting new discovery in a fabulous area, providing ideal accommodation for a larger gathering and particularly well-placed for exploring the many delights and attractions of the Cannaregio district.
A few short steps to the local ‘Coop’ supermarket for stress-free self-catering and a short walk to the Santa Sofia ‘traghetto’ gondola ferry which crosses the Grand Canal to the famous Rialto markets in the San Polo district.
A gentle stroll to the wonderful little multi-coloured marble jewel-box church of Santa Maria Dei Miracoli, the towering white facade of the I Gesuiti with its statues of the apostles and to the shops, action and eateries along the Strada Nova.
Also convenient for two vaporetto (water bus) stops - one at Fondamente Nove on Venice’s northern waterfront and the other at Ca’ d’Oro on the Grand Canal (located just next to the stunning Ca’ d’Oro).
