About the Property

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This charming , exclusive apartment with all windows facing south overlooking a wide canal, is in a romantic, newly restored, typically Venetian Gothic palazzetto, just behind the famous Ca'd'Oro of which it is a copy in miniature. It is around the corner from the famous 18th Century Jesuit church with Domenico Rossi's extravagant interior of folds of damask rendered in coloured marble. Here you have the advantages of living in a historical listed building in the true Venice of the Venetians, and the use of a canoe for the unique experience of seeing Venice from the water.

From the apartment which is on the piano nobile up 20 steps you can take breakfast on the balcony overlooking the canal.

The central location of the apartment means that all Venetian amenities, theatres, swimming pool on the Guidecca, water sports on the Lido and all islands, Murano, Torcello etc are easily and cheaply accessible by vaporetto from the Fondamenta Nuova or the Ca'd'Oro vaporetto stop on the Gran Canal. Full instruction leaflet provided with tips and restaurant suggestions etc.

We also mention our other family property which is in Rome page 270 on this Holiday rental site; we would love you to come there as well!

Golf info.: There is the Venice Golf Club (Circolo Golf de Venezia Lido [Alberoni]) on telephone no. +39 41 731015 where the '39' is the country code for Italy. The price is 15€, per person per day at weekends and 10,€during the week. It is helpful if you bring your handicap certificate. The course is closed on Mondays.
Recent guests (July 2004) have said it is the best golf course and most pleasant clubhouse they have ever been to in Italy.

  • KITCHEN NOTES 2006/7 Since there is no special field for kitchen notes we would like to add this information regarding kitchen in Venice As from Summer 2006 we are introducing a so called breakfast kitchen on the piano nobile to replace that we have had so far. A breakfast kitchen will be equipped with crockery, plates and glasses for making a breakfast to provide sufficient sustenance for sightseeing and swimming etc; light family soup- pasta- salad suppers; drinks for our living in guests- but not for conjuring up gastronomic creations for large numbers. This decision has been taken on the one hand because frequent excessively dirty kitchens have meant more cleaning hours, and that expense in turn has had to be born by guests, most of whom sensibly do not come on holiday to cook anyway. It is also because occasionally guests have complained of arriving to a house 'which smells'.--- contd below...moreless

Other Amenities

  • Extensive library, use of a canoe for sightseeing by canal. This costs 150GBP per stay KITCHEN 2006 -- contd from above The world has changed. In thirty years happy marriage my husband never even discovered where the kitchen was. Now, the hobby of cookery has become all pervading. TV cooks occupy 70% of prime time viewing . Umpteen schools, courses, demonstrations, columns, books, videos, you name it compete for your attention on an hourly basis. So we thought we would be different. Two saucepans, one frying pan and there you are: freed for the duration of your holiday with us from slavery over a hot cooker. ...moreless
