With generously proportioned accommodation for six, there are three charming and quiet double bedrooms, each ensuring a heavenly night's sleep. While the first two bedrooms have beautifully embellished double beds and are finished in cheerful colours, the pretty third one features two chintz-covered single beds.
With an up-to-date en suite bathroom, the master bedroom provides guests with a bathtub and a separate shower, while the two further bathrooms respectively have a bathtub and a shower and are modern, spacious and immaculately presented.

Perhaps the best way is to simply get lost wandering through the enchanting little streets and passageways of ‘The Floating City’ that are abound with artisans, strolling beside its canals, and finding its secret corners. No matter where this exploration takes you, it's easy to find your way back to St. Mark’s square (Piazza San Marco’) and the Grand Canal.

Hop on board a gondola and experience the hidden canals of Venice by boat while the gondolier hums some traditional Italian melodies. Nevertheless, a trip to Venice wouldn't be complete without onboarding a vaporetto (Venetian public waterbus) for the ride across the lagoon to Murano, home of Venice's fabled glass workers. Explore the intricacies of the famed Italian handicrafts with a day trip from Venice to the nearby islands of Murano and Burano, and watch centuries-old glassblowing techniques in Murano, and marvel at the detailed stitches of exquisite Burano lace.
