Whether the watery beauty of Venice ,“La Serenissima”,captured your soul many trips ago, and you long to return to this ephemeral Italian treasure,or whether you have always longed to visit Venice, the world’s most evocative city, you will thrill to this exquisite experience. Enter through a glassed portal into the magical Palazzo, and its suggestive 17th century splendour, glimpse the gardens through another portal and then stroll into the entrance hall. Just beyond the enormous Baroque lantern, the waters of the Canal of the Rio Marin lap gently at the double-doored main entrance opposite. Welcome to the impressive white stone Palazzo Gradenigo.
A dramatically lit circular staircase leads to the 3rd floor apartment itself. The apartment is light-filled and luminous. The 4 bedroom apartment is perfect for a large family, two couples, or two couples plus 2 singles (but why not just a couple!). Picture a spacious living area with a windowed atrium for dining. The 3 sided-windows punctuated by classical stone pillars offer 180 degree views of the palazzo gardens, the Venetian tiled roof-tops,and elegant domes. In addition, there is a large, fully equipped, eat-in kitchen, two master bedrooms, 2 singles, and two full baths with tubs and showers, spread between two levels of this elegant, luminous duplex. The bathrooms are marble-tiled and modern. The upper Master offers a lovely balcony, with a table and chairs, which runs along nearly all of the length of the floor.
The Palazzo is beautifully located a hundred meters from the Grand Canal and the Ponte Scazzi, with easy access to the water bus and to the train station. Venice is a city for walking, and this apartment is a stroll away from the many famous sites of Venice. Walk out the door and follow signs to the Rialto, to San Marco’s magnificent Piazza, to the Accademia. Or hop on a water bus, a water taxi, or the most romantic, a Gondola. Don't miss Peggy Guggenheim's Museum, a boat ride to the Lido, or a Bellini (sparkling wine and fresh peach juice) at Sunset. Fabulous restaurants and simple trattorias, a glass of wine on the Grand Canal. All is at hand for a perfect stay in magical Venice.
