The furnishings enhance the apartment's character combinig classical style with contemporary comfort. Exposed beams & subtle terrazzo flooring give a traditional Venetian finish while the Italian chandeliers, original oil paintings and textiles add more than a hint of luxury.

Keep going and you will reach La Salute which marks the point where the Grand Canal meets the Bacino di San Marco, from which you can see the whole expanse of the lagoon. You will not forget such a moment in a hurry! Also local to us is the Guggenheim and Punta della Dogana Art Museums both near the Accademia Bridge. Not far away is Campo Barnaba, with its famous floating vegetable 'shop', and a bit further on is Campo Santa Margherita one of the liveliest squares in Venice with cafes, restaurants and a daily food market.

The owners endeavor to ensure that the property is in a good condition when each guest arrives. The owners would like to make clear that there can be other particular circumstances in Venice, especially in the winter months to do with Acqua Alta (High Tides) that may in rare situations create difficulties with the normal drainage from the property. These are beyond the control of the owners and although every effort will be made to ameliorate any problems, you should take this into account when making your winter booking.
