|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
In the art and residential district of Venice in the Sestriere of San Marco, this apartment is extremely well furnished and equipped. The view of the Canal Grande is unique. The double bedroom and the twin bedroom have en-suite bathrooms that have either bath or shower cabin. The living and dining area allow a relaxing and representative layout for family and romantic escapes.
Family kitchen and a lot of storage, also for long rentals, are provided. Ca’ Nova is very bright as it is on the third floor of an antique building that it has been the home for Lord Byron and many writers and poets of the 18th century. Built in the 17th century it has stairs to the apartment. The water entrance allow the access to the palace from the Canal Grande and the garden from the street entrance give an exclusive and luxury layout that is rare to find.
Top quality furniture and modern art masterpieces are the theme of Ca’Nova that will ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay to all our guests.
The combination of modern and antique is rare to find in an holiday apartment so well mixed and the proximity to vaporetto’ s stop, Alilaguna shuttle boat to the airport, supermarkets, groceries, fine restaurants and art galleries nearby ensure the apartment’s guests the possibility to have a walking distance to all amenities and transportation to the whole island’s and lagoon.
This place is drop-dead gorgeous: on the top floor of an historic palazzo on the Grand Canal in which Lord Byron once lived. There are venetian plaster and silk wall coverings, beautiful antiques and Oriental rugs, interesting and eclectic art. The two bedrooms are spacious, with lots of closet and drawer space, and very comfortable beds -- one a king, the other with two twins. The bathrooms are well-designed -- one with walk-in shower, the other with a full jacuzzi, and the kitchen is new, modern and well equipped. But all of that pales before the view -- right on the Grand Canal, facing the San Polo vaporetto stop, with a view of the sunset each evening. Once you start watching the continuous action, it is hard to tear yourself away.......
Which is good, because there is one major drawback: the apartment and that view is accessed only by four very steep flights of stairs. Once you get back from a day of walking Venice, you think twice about going out again for dinner. Which brings us to the next relatively minor drawback: television viewing is limited to a few pretty bad local Italian station. No world news -- which is increasingly important these days.
The palazzo is located in San Stephano, surrounded by upscale art and decor shops, wonderful small tavernas, and a number of food shops. Both the Rialto Bridge and San Marco are a short walk away, but you are sequestered from the hoards of tourists.
All in all -- this is a five-star experience.....minus one star for lack of elevator and cable tv. We were told that both were in the planning stage.
Diese Wohnung im Obergeschoß des Palazzo Mocenigo ist ideal für einen Aufenthalt, bei dem man sich in dieser unglaublichen Stadt ein wenig "zuhause" fühlen kann. Sie ist sehr hoch gelegen, was heißt, dass man mit Gepäck schon über "Bergsteigerqualitäten" verfügen muss, ein Umstand, der für den Blick natürlich vorteilhaft ist. Die Wohnung ist bestens gewartet und betreut. Das einzige vielleicht, was anzumerken ist: es fällt nie ein Sonnenstrahl hinein, der Palazzo ist also der "vornehmen Blässe" des 18. und 19. Jhdts. verpflichtet. Ausgestattet mit sehr besonderen Kunstbänden, die einem die Stadt nahebringen wollen und auch sehr gut können. Und, auch nur am Rande, man sollte, wenn man mit dem südlichen "Bettgewurstel" nicht zurechtkommt, seine eigenen Decken mitbringen. Und wenn man will, kann man mit dem Wassertaxi anlegen, wenn kein Acqua Alta herrscht.
