About the property

Totally Renovated By One Of Italy's Top Designers In A Contemporary Style

A charming four story Venetian palazzo with a water front and private deck. The renovation was done last year by a renowned designer and features a contemporary take on traditional Venetian design. Three kitchens. Gym with small pool/hot tub. Three living areas on the first floor and on the loft. Five dining areas.Electricity, air conditioning, house heating and Wi-Fi broadband access are included. Rarely does one have the opportunity to rent a whole palazzzo as one unit. The building is all yours!

Depicted by Canaletto and Guardi Campo San Pietro stands beside a 16th century church designed by Palladio and a 15th century bell tower by Codussi. With stunning views in every direction and private water front and deck, Palazzo Castello is a very special discovery. The church of San Pietro in Castello was, for more than 500 years, up until 1807, the patriarchal church of Venice and seat of the religious authority in the adjacent Palazzo del Patriarca. It is located between the two major exhibition centers in Venice, Giardini della Biennale and Arsenale. This is the perfect destination for those who wish to discover the ‘real Venice’ and escape the crowds of tourists. From Palazzo Castello guests have the privileged opportunity to be taken to the secret hidden gems inside Venice as well as beyond to the islands and the nearby hinterland. With two private water taxis provided for guests one can move in comfort and style! At Casstello you can eat or have drinks outside on the campo (square in Venetian) in front of the church, on the private deck on the water, on the first floor terrace, on the loft or on the altana (wooden terrace above the roof) overlooking Venice.Inside, PalazzoCastello can only be described as ‘amazing’! Successful and well known interior designer, Ilaria Miani, has created another gem. Not only has this palazzo been cleverly and thoughtfully restored in keeping with its tradition but it has also been furnished and decorated with absolutely exquisite style. Nothing has been left wanting. Spacious bedrooms with fabulous modern en suite bathrooms, kitchens on each level with the principal one on the ground floor equipt for catering for anything from cookery classes to large events, to die for ‘altanas’ (decks & terraces) where one can relax with a chilled prosecco and watch the movement of boats on the canals. There is even a gym and a hot tub and every available service one could desire. With their fabulous connections, the owners of Palazzo Castello can give guests the opportunity to visit the most exclusive and private palazzi, dine in the very best hidden away restaurants and meet all manner of interesting artists and writers.Once you have been to Palazzo Castello it is guaranteed you will not want to leave! The luxurious yet homely and warm surroundings, the views from the decks, the delicious meals and the magic of staying in a Venetian palazzo are indeed hardnto beat anywhere in the world.
