Faliero – sleeps 4

Situated just a few minutes from the Rialto Bridge and its famous shops and open-air food market, these apartments are an ideal departure point for pleasant walks among the fascinating little streets, bridges and squares of Venice, for excursions out into the lagoon, and for trips to the Veneto region on the mainland. Although being very conveniently located to all of Venice, the complex is away from any major flow of tourists, immersed as it is in the peace and tranquillity of its garden and quiet residential neighborhood. And, just a few steps away are small, local shops for your fresh breakfast rolls, fruit, and groceries. The apartments offer to even the most demanding of clients a level of comfort, convenience and relaxation rarely found elsewhere in Venice. The décor, from the marmorino walls to the terrazzo floors, will help make your time in this refined yet welcoming ambience so pleasant that you will want to stay longer.

This elegant apartment, 100 square meters (about 1,100 square feet) in size, occupies the whole second floor (third floor, American) of the palazzo and is reached by a lovely staircase of Istrian stone. Furnished with taste and refinement, enriched by various articles of antique furniture, Faliero provides a spacious living room with video door-phone, telephone, and satellite TV, and a well-equipped kitchen (refrigerator, freezer, electric oven, dishwasher, and such extra conveniences as an electric kettle and American-type drip coffee-maker), as well as central heating and air conditioning (in season) and a central radio system with speakers in each room. From the dining room there is an enviable view of adjacent Campo San Boldo. The sleeping quarters comprise two twin-bedded bedrooms, the larger one having a view of the canal, while the smaller one has a more cozy charm. Two bathrooms, one with a tub/shower combo and the other with a shower, complete the apartment. Also included is a laundry room with washing machine and ironing board. The lovely décor features an exposed-beam ceiling with decorated tiles, flooring of Venetian terrazzo and parquet, and walls of marmorino in warm tones. Faliero is extremely functional, perfect for a romantic vacation for a couple, or for a small family.

The elegant and charming apartments, called Manin and Faliero, are part of the same 15th century palazzetto that rises between Campo San Polo and Campo San Giacomo dall'Orio, in the historic centre of Venice. The palazzetto, once surrounded by canals, gained its present aspect as the result of extensive reconstruction during the Napoleonic era.  A complete restoration by the present owners, between 1992 and 1996, preserved all the elegance typical of Venetian palaces, but also installed up-to-date technology, resulting in a marvelous standard of living. The residential complex also includes a pleasant garden equipped with a table and chairs for outdoor dining, as well as a tennis court and club house which can be booked by guests.
