A GORGEOUS FOUR STORY VENETIAN PALAZZO WITH A WATER FRONT AND PRIVATE

Castello Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 formal bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, three kitchens, gym, small pool/hot tub

We are thrilled to showcase our brand new holiday home - a gorgeous four story Venetian palazzo with a water front and private deck. Depicted by Canaletto and Guardi, it stands beside a 16th century church designed by Palladio and a 15th century bell tower by Codussi.

There are stunning views of Venice from every corner of the palazzo. It sleeps up to 16 in 6 formal bedrooms and also has a spacious loft with 4 sofa beds. There are 8 bathrooms, each one with a walk in shower. The palazzo has three kitchens, three living areas and five dining areas (the formal dining room, terraces, loft and on the campo). There is also a gym with a small pool/hot tub and an enormous conference/multimedia hall.

Layout:

Ground floor - The main entrance leads to the stairs and lift. On the right there is an entrance hall, hallway and main kitchen. The stairs lead to the cavanna (ancient boat shelter), a 1000 sq feet vaulted room that can be used for dining, (seats 50 people), conferences, meetings, dancing, music, cinema etc. The room is also accessible from the main entrance. Beyond the cavanna is a gym with shower, heated pool/hot tub. Doors open to a small garden, which will become a 1,000 sq. feet garden in 2013/2014.

First floor - Taking the lift, you will reach the second kitchen, dining room, two living rooms and two bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms. The lift arrives directly onto the dining/living room. Three doors lead to a large terrace overlooking the water.

Second Floor - There is a master bedroom with water views, a large tub and a balcony overlooking the Palladian church. The second bedroom has a Turkish bath. There are two more bedrooms, each with en suite accommodation.

Loft: Reachable by stairs or lift, the spacious loft has a third kitchen with an eating counter and kitchen, a bathroom, and a living area with four sofa beds for sleeping up to four. Stairs lead to the 150 feet roof terrace from which you can have dinner and drinks, enjoying breathtaking views over Venice.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Palazzo was just mesmerizing! It was jaw-droppingly gorgeous! The location was quiet and away from the maddening crowds. The availability of the water taxis was key for some of our travel companions. Our group really had a wonderful time and felt like we were in a very special place. The recommended tour guide was a gem. Our day turned out to be fantastic! ... she was really worth every penny in the end. Thanks, as always for everything. We saw a side to Venice we would have otherwise missed, and loved every minute of it! Return Client: Nancy B.

If you are seeking a first class accommodation option within easy reach of the best of Venice but away from the crush this is it! Beautiful property offering all that could be expected and supported by excellent service. While an often used phrase , this property and the team supporting it are "truly unique" . We highly recommend Sophia 's house keeping and cooking skills - nothing was too much trouble. You will not be disappointed.

San Pietro in Castello has been for more than 500 years, until 1807, the patriarchal church of Venice and seat of the religious authority in the adjacent Palazzo del Patriarca. It's located between the two major exhibition centers in Venice, Giardini della Biennale and Arsenale. Obviously its destination is not for hurried tourists but could be the ideal location for a group looking for deepening its knowledge on Venice and laguna and its hinterland including Vicenza, Verona, Padova that they can reach by water taxi + private coach. From San Pietro you can quickly move to the center or make tours in the laguna using water taxisl, without suffering the big disadvantage of finding yourself stuck among thousand of tourists. Otherwise at a short reach on foot you will be able to reach three different stops of 'vaporetti' that will bring you anywhere wish. If you just wish to walk San Marco is reachable in 20 minutes.
