A large and bright apartment located in a strategic position for getting around the historic center. The Gran Canal is very close and you can cross it using a gondola ferry service for a mere 2 Euro. The vaporetto (water bus) stop that allows you to reach any destination in the lagoon is also only a few steps away.
The flat is close to a very useful baker for the daily bread, milk and croissant while the supermarket is about 50 mt away. It is an area rich in bars and restaurants, but despite being an area of great artistic interest is not too crowded.
The apartment was restored for the owners, who used to live here, with high specification and great comfort. There are two balconies on the canal from where you can see the Gran Canal and the house which was once Lord Byron’s, it is a very picturesque corner. The sitting room benefits from original beams, has comfortable divans and in the morning the sun light floods in. The kitchen has a large fridge and it is well equipped (also for cooking lessons).
The walls are decorated with special pigments used in the old days, white malt and black Venetian stucco or red for the ceiling in the dining room. Dark tanganica wood for the drawing room floor. Floor carpets are in red brick colour. The two bedrooms look out onto the pictoresque campiello San Toma' from where you can see the ancient Frari belltower. They are full of light and facing south west and have air conditioning.
The drawing room is a special room that changes according to the time of the day, in the morning it gets the sun that creates interesting shadows in between the white stone columns of the balconies, it lightens the garden in front and brings great energy. In the afternoon, during the warmer months, it is very nice to enjoy the evening breeze sipping an aperitif on the balcony. In the evening, the special lightings and the different types of wood whose hues vary from honey to dark brown create a warm and pleasant ambience where you can relax.
