When a luxury property perches itself right next to a 16th century palazzo on the Grand Canal in Venice, it immediately satiates the appetite of diehard romantics who have high expectations from the city. Upscale rooms and suites are liberally decorated with art and treasures, tiepolo frescoes, gilded ceilings and centuriesold leather wall coverings. Art décor can be seen everywhere, from murals on ceilings to the fireplace of restaurants. Outdoor areas are just as classy, whether you are at the airy private garden or terraced dining area. A dedicated housekeeper and chef ensure bespoke menus include regional and international cuisine. Services like babysitting and excursion planning go down particularly well with guests.
