VENICE HOUSE

A charming four storey Venetian house with a waterfront and private deck

The property stands beside a 16th century church designed by Palladio and a 15th century bell tower designed by Codussi. The stunning views around it have been immortalised in works by the painters Canaletto and Guardi.

Sleeps up to 12 in 6 formal bedrooms plus there is a spacious loft with 2 sofa beds.

Crucially for summer, mosquito screens have been installed on all the windows so the shutters can be flung open at night and guests can wake to the sound of chiming church bells and gently lapping water.
There are kitchens on three of the four floors, making it just as easy to eat in the garden as in the first-level dining room, up on the rooftop altana or on the grand terrace under a pergola laden with lilac wisteria. Afterwards, flop into the canvas butterfly chairs on the deck and look out to the lagoon in the hazy distance.
