Palazzo 1619 Burano Venice
This beautiful property is situated within a stunning 17th Century period building overlooking Canale della Giudecca in wonderful Burano, the “coloured island of lace”.
The “Palazzetto” is a treasured national monument and offers some of the best views of Burano, immortalised in countless postcards and by the Finacial Times in its “House and Home” property supplement back in 2008.
The apartment has been carefully restored and brought back to its original glory following the strict regulations issued by the Venice Commission for Architectural and Landscape Heritage.
The property, with a floor area of just over 2000 square feet, is built over three levels and benefits from an independent private access on the bank of Canale Guidecca.
The ground floor comprises a spacious kitchen overlooking the canal, embellished by some fantastic period features such as a 17th century fireplace and a stone butler sink along with a new beautiful cast-iron aga stove. Through a wonderful period door, you gain access to a bright and majestic living room featuring a Verona marble fireplace and two large mirrored windows overlooking the canal. On the same level there is also a utility room and a good-size bathroom with shower.
All floors, realised in “Venetian seminato style”, have been created Master Crovato, restorer of the mosaics in St Mark's cathedral. Through a short corridor you can gain access to a small Venetian courtyard with a beautiful antique stone fountain.
The first floor, accessed via a solid wooden staircase, comprises two spacious and bright bedrooms, each featuring two large windows overlooking the canal and the laguna. The first one has a kingsize bed, the second one has two good size twin beds which can be put togheter to form a kingsize bed. A second spacious bathroom with shower is also available on this level.
The top floor, the attic, is a beautiful cozy room with original roof from 1600 from where you can enjoy views of Venice while sipping your cup of coffee and reading a book.
The property benefits from first class finishings throughout, the heating and air conditioning systems can be easily activated via a control board even separately for each level.
The property is beautifully furnished with period ornate furniture.
The property is no-smoking and no pets are allowed.
The location of the “Palazzetto” is truly unique so much so that world-renowned designer Philippe Starck has recently purchased a couple of properties nearby.

Perfect Venetian Holiday
This was our first trip to Venice and it could have not been more wonderful! This beautiful home on the lagoon island of Burano was the perfect home base for exploring the city of Venice as well as the other smaller islands. We loved all the city had to offer, but also looked forward to the beautiful water bus ride back to the quiet oasis of this charming fishing village. Trips to Murano, Torcello and Mazzorbo, where we enjoyed wonderful food, delicious wine and a truly local experience, were the perfect compliment to the hustle and bustle of the beautiful city of Venice.”
