This refined VenetianPalace is listed as a ‘period residence’ by Venice’s provincial government and by the ministry responsible for the city’s artistic heritage. Dating back to the 16th century, it has frescoed ceilings, genuine period furniture, precious woven silk wall-coverings and paintings by artists from the school of Tintoretto.
Guests are welcomed into an entrance hall with marble floors, lacunar wood ceilings and leaded, stained glass windows overlooking a canal with the hotel’s own private mooring. Opposite, the ‘piano nobile’ can be reached via magnificent “embracing” type staircase, the only one of its kind in Venice. A delicious buffet lunch of sweet and savoury dishes is served in beautiful dining rooms or, during fine weather, in the Palace’s own splendid private garden. In this hidden treasure, guests can read and relax on marble benches amid multi coloured beds of scented flowers shaded by trees that are centuries old.
These surroundings give guests the sense that they have been catapulted back in time into the splendour and glory of Venice’s MarineRepublic – whilst still cocooned by all the luxuries a modern hotel can provide.
This Palace provides the ideal location for a stay in Venice that is a perfect blend of comfort and beautiful surroundings – one from which to sample every magical aspect of the lagoon city. With its 15 rooms, this 4 star hotelcan accommodate up to 37 people. In the event that your party of guests numbers 30-35, then the ideal solution is to rent the entire building and have the pleasure of its gardens, halls and rooms all to yourselves. In addition to this, catering can be arranged for as many functions as you may desire to hold – a buffet perhaps.
