  • Elegant and spacious
  • Shops/restaurants 1min walk

Few destinations capture hearts and minds like Venice and this beautiful canal-side apartment feeds the imagination still further. In an original 16th-century building, the ornate frescoes, two marble bathrooms and 18th-century Murano chandeliers are a taste of the city’s famous opulence, now combined with the creature comforts of home. There’s wifi and a fully equipped kitchen – and given that you have such an elegant dining room at your disposal, it would be a shame not to engage in a little home cooking for at least one night of your stay.

Your apartment, one of three sharing an entrance, is on the first floor and an impressive 280m square, the polished floors only adding to the luxurious sense of space. You’ll be staying in the buzzing Ormesini neighbourhood, which offers a genuine slice of Venetian life. Right next to the Jewish Quarter and its bookshops, art galleries and antique shops, there’s more to look at than glass and mask shops. You’ll find plenty of authentic bacaro and restaurants to sample a spritz al bitter or dine out on a few of the local dishes and maybe catch some live music along the way.

Our choice of Italian properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

It’s home to one of the world’s most famous carnivals, but Venice doesn’t limit its magnificent theatrical impact to masks and costumes.
