A glamorous 100 m2 elegantly appointed flat that used to be the home of a world-famous architect. The attention to detail, the paintings, the venetian terrace floors and ceiling rafters, bestow the apartment a romantic elegant touch.
The flat is situated on the second floor of a palazzina with an inner courtyard and private terrace near Saint Mark's square. It features a roomy tasteful living room decked with leather sofas and arm-chairs, and a spacious full-service kitchen that can easily seat eight people. The first of the bedrooms has a romantic four-post bed, the second one is on a raised level and the third has its own in-room bathroom. Both bathrooms feature sink, toilet, bidè and shower.
The apartment is fitted with: a full-service kitchen with dishwasher, oven, refrigerator and expresso coffee machine. The entire apartment is heated, air-conditioned and has free Wi-fi. There is also a hair-dryer, iron and ironing board, towels and bed linen, plus a cradle (on request). Capacity: Eight people.
The flat is centrally located, just a short walk from the marvelous Saint Mark's square, in Saint Mark's district.
This district is the original heart of the city. The square served as the political and judicial center of the Republic of Venice for close to a thousand years.
This location lets you take in the splendid Palazzo Ducale (the seat of Venice's political power since the 9th century), the suggestive Saint Mark's Basilica (the Doge's private chapel until 1807) and the picturesque Watch Tower festooned with statues of Venetian moors striking the hours on the huge bell at its top... a most singular of views that captures the magic of this age-old city.
The arch beneath the Tower links the Piazza with the Mercerie, that is, the city's high-street since the Republic's birth. Today it is lined with scores of luxury brand stores.
A short walk takes you to the Paglia bridge, behind Ducale Palace, and the famous Bridge of Sighs beyond which lies the Castello district.
Other points of historical and cultural interest are undoubtedly the magnificent La Fenice theater (Venice's main lyrical venue – destroyed and resurrected several times), the Saint Moisè church and Palazzo Grassi (which has lately been converted into a prestigious gallery).
If shopping is your thing, then you'll be glad to know that the apartment is basically located on Calle 24 March, better known as the “famous brands” street, where numerous stores and boutiques store the latest fashions.
