Apartment Viola is a super stylish contemporary penthouse in a former Palazzo, looking out onto the Grand Canal, between the Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Square, in the romantic city of historic Venice, on Italy’s north east coast. This masterpiece of Venetian architecture is home to four superb luxury apartments, which can be rented together as one residence.

Apartment Viola has three spacious ensuite bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to five guests, ideal for a small family, or a friends’ sharing. The Palazzo has its own boat jetty for direct water arrival and collection, an imposing formal entrance, a stunning shared communal hall, and a private elevator to take you to your penthouse. This luxury one hundred and seventy square metre, one storey apartment, is located on the top floor of this beautiful building. Apartment Viola has been carefully restored, with wood beamed sloping ceilings, classic Italian marble flooring, skylight windows, a newly installed state of the art fitted kitchen, and modern marble bathrooms. The apartment benefits from its own private Altana terrace with spectacular views over the city and rooftops of Venice. For your comfort and entertainment, complimentary air conditioning, central heating, and Wi-Fi is included throughout.

Take the internal elevator to the top floor, where you will find exclusively the ultra-modern Apartment Viola. The entrance opens onto a small hall, that leads into the Grand Salon sitting room with skylight windows and beamed ceilings. The long salon is  furnished with oversized sofas, scattered with coloured Fortuny cushions, glass topped coffee tables, and decorated with original antiques and impressive Venini large glass vases. There is a fully fitted kitchen equipped with all the latest gadgets you will need to cater for your stay, and an adjacent separate retro dining room for indoor entertaining. Three beautifully-appointed bedrooms lead off from the long salon, dressed in the finest Italian bed linen, all with matching ensuite marble bathrooms with walk-in showers, hand basins, bidets, and WCs. Two of the bedrooms are furnished with large double beds, and one has a single bed. The piece de resistance of this picture perfect penthouse is the Venetian Altana Terrace. This stunning outdoor space is furnished with turquoise wicker armchairs and coffee table, and has commanding views over the Venetian cityscape. Imagine yourself at Aperitivo Hour, sipping Prosecco on the Penthouse terrace, and raising your glass to the most memorable of holidays.

Apartment Viola is the penthouse in a Palazzo, one of four luxury residences in what was originally a magnificent sixteenth century Venetian family home. The apartment is ideally located on the Grand Canal in the heart of Venice, betwixt and between the Rialto Bridge, and St Mark’s Square. The property has its own water taxi boat jetty, perfect for picking you up for a day’s sightseeing, and dropping you off after an evening out. The international Marco Polo airport is a thirty minute private water taxi journey away, or seventy five minutes by the public vaporetto.

The apartment is perfectly positioned within walking distance of most of the major sights of Venice, and one of the joys of a holiday here, is walking over many of the four hundred bridges, and some of one hundred and eighteen canals, as the architecture reveals the city’s four-hundred-year history. Take a trip down the Grand Canal to the impressive St Mark’s Square, and the eleventh century Basilica, where mass is still held today. Visit the Byzantine Doge’s Palace, climb the clocktower, and cross the Bridge of Sighs. On the other side of the square is the Correr Museum, highlighting the history of Venice in its royal rooms and library. Take time out to stroll around the square, window shop in the jewellery stores, before sitting down for tea in Florian’s, whilst the orchestra plays your favourite tunes. Cross the canal to the Napoleonic Accademia Gallery to view classical Venetian art, and the nearby seventeenth century Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute, with its iconic cupola and twelve paintings by Titian. Make time to visit the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, an homage to twentieth century modern art, housed in her original palazzo home.

Take an island tour to see the glassblowers at work on Murano, the colourful houses and lacemakers on Burano, and the seventh century cathedral on Torcello, with its Byzantine art. Cross the sea to the Lido, famous for its grand hotels, long sandy beaches, and for those who like to chance their luck, there’s a casino too. Venice is a food lovers paradise, sample the local dish of Baccala Mantecato, a salted cod dish, best served with a chilled white wine.

The apartment is near to the famous Rialto Bridge and its food markets, mongering fresh fruit and vegetables. A walk to St Mark’s Square will take you through streets selling the very best quality hand crafted leather goods, silk scarves, and cashmere sweaters, not to mention the designer dress shops with brand labels you’ll want to buy.

For the romantics, get into a gondola and cruise the canals, or simply take one, to cross the water from one side to the other. In the evening enjoy a stroll to Harry’s Bar for a Bellini, before a night at the opera at the Fenice Theatre, then dine in a local restaurant, serving traditional Venetian dishes overlooking the Grand Canal, under a Tiepolo blue sky. If you are lucky enough to be there during the Carnival, make sure you wear a mysterious mask, and join in the fun and frolics of this fabulous festival.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

A vacation in Venice is magical for children of all ages. This beautiful penthouse is situated in the heart of the city, with most of the major sights within walking distance.

Kids love a ride down the Grand Canal on the local vaporetto water bus, climb aboard for a cruise down the main waterway of Venice and see the history in the magnificent palaces that line the route. Get off at St Mark’s Square, and visit the Doge’s Palace, where they can’t fail to be impressed by the Golden Staircase to the fourteenth century Great Hall, and the twenty two metre painting by Titian. Cross the Bridge of Sighs and explore the dark dungeons where the Dukes had their prisons. Play a game of Hunt the Winged Lion, the symbol of the city, and to be found on buildings all over Venice. Go for a gondola ride, and get off at Zattere, where they can enjoy an ice cream at the famous Gelateria Nico. Take a picnic to the Giardini Pubblica, where there is a children’s playground and a grotto. Shop for masks for carnival time, or your kids can make their own at Ca’ Macaria. Take a trip to Murano, where they can watch the glass blowers make incredible pieces they’ll want to take home.

Cross the sea to the Lido, famous for its sandy beaches, where even out of season they can build castles and swim in the sea. Go out of town to Villa Pisani, travel down the Brenta Canal that connects Venice to Padua, where they can lose themselves in the amazing maze and the double staircase to the top of the tower.
