Ca' delle Comari
Located in the very heart of Venice, Ca’ delle Comari is a carefully restored apartment that can accommodate up to 6 guests in bold Italian style. With sweet Canal views and a terrace on top, this property has everything one can wish for: a cozy and intimate atmosphere a few steps from the magnificent Grand Canal and the myriads of activities the ‘City of Bridges’ has to offer.
Accessed by a gated external stone staircase rising from the courtyard below, this bright and cheerful duplex apartment sits on the 2nd and 3rd floors of an impressive building that borders the dainty ‘Rio Malpaga’ canal.
Elegantly furnished with a feminine touch, this apartment has an inviting main sitting and dining room which open to a gorgeous quaint Juliet balcony looking over the Canal below. This very romantic room has also soft lighting, exposed beams, terrazzo flooring and air-conditioning.
The compact and well-equipped galley-style kitchen with a washing machine has everything required for cooking meals inspired by Italian cuisine. In the bathroom, the Italian references are in the Venetian red 'Marmorino' stone with modern fittings and a separate shower.
On the same floor, guests will find the two double bedrooms in shabby-chic style, which are air conditioned and feature a creamy gelato colours decoration. While the first boasts a double bed and provides guests with Canal view to the side, the other overlooks the ‘corte’ with a double bed that can also be divided into twins at request. The bedrooms come along with a bathroom in Venetian red 'Marmorino, characterized by modern fittings and a separate shower.
Upstairs, the large air-conditioned lounging area boasts two fold out single beds beneath low white-washed beams, and adds a vaguely Moroccan vibe to the property. Under the sloping ceiling, guests will be able to relax in the adjacent bathroom bathtub and capture some views of the Canal. And steps leading up to the magical ‘altana’, a high and traditional rooftop in the city looking over the picturesque Dorsoduro’s skyline to the Church of San Barnaba and offering a partial glimpse of the Grand Canal to the rear.
Enjoying a truly outstanding position between the Accademia Bridge, the Academy of Fine Arts and the Ca’ Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century Art, and the vaporetto stop, you will be able to discover the wonders of the lagoon and some parts of the city that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Perhaps the best way is to simply get lost wandering through the enchanting little streets and passageways of ‘The Floating City’ that 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. Take a walk through the most characteristic and important places for the history of Venice, and climb St. Mark’s Bell Tower and visit one of the most majestic cathedrals in the world, St. Mark’s Basilica.
After admiring the stunning views from the oldest bridge in Venice, Rialto Bridge, you will have some time to enjoy some shopping on either side of its portico. Beyond the romantic canals and picturesque architecture, guests passionate about history will easily find their way to the myriads of museums the ‘City of Masks’ has to offers, including the prestigious Gallerie dell’Accademia, the symbol of the city - the Doge’s Palace, Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
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.
