On strolling through Venice have you ever wondered what secret gardens lie beyond those tall Palazzo walls where trees and shrubs peek tantalisingly over the ancient terracotta brickwork? Well now you can find out!
Ca’ Cerchieri 1 is a quiet and charming apartment on the first floor of an impressive Grand Canal Palazzo in the Dorsoduro area with private water access and views over the owner’s private palazzo gardens.
The apartment is simply and elegantly furnished and features a cosy living area facing the palazzo gardens, a further small living room with two single beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a master bedroom with king size bed, and a bathroom with bathtub.
The Palazzo Loredan Dell’Ambasciatore, in which the apartment is located, is one of the finest palazzi in Venice and is in a fabulous position on the Grand Canal situated between the Accademia Bridge/Academy of Fine Arts and Ca’ Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century Art. It has a long and varied history as you’d expect from a palazzo which was the birthplace of not one but two ancient Doges of Venice – Leonardo Loredan (1501-21) and Francesco Loredan (1752-62)…If only walls could talk!
The delightful local neighbourhood around Campo San Barnaba (location of a number of well known film scenes – think ��Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade’ and ��Summertime’) is a joy to explore with its bars, restaurants (several along Calle Lunga San Barnaba), craftshops and food shops (including the long-established fruit and vegetable boat moored on the canal).
