A divine and classic 5 bedroom 4 bathroom third floor apartment of a beautiful and quiet Byzantine palazzo on the Grand Canal in San Marco with direct views over to the Aman – the apartment is in original style with the huge plus of an internal sunny terrace, private lift, own boat mooring and water gate.
The form of the apartment is the classic Grand Canal structure of a main portego room of around 20 metres, with three main reception rooms overlooking the Grand Canal.
Ernest Hemingway was a house habitué during his Venice lagoon duck hunt periods, magically described in his famous book “Across the River and into the Trees”, where one of the characters, “Baron Alvarito”, was based on the palace’s owner. His comfy leather armchair sits in the same position as always. Sofia Loren was a guest there too and was photographed in stunning pose on the balcony…
The property has five (potentially six) double bedrooms, four (potentially six) bathrooms and kitchen. Around 400 sq.m. with 110 sq.m. of magazzini (store rooms).
Private boat mooring and water gate. Courtyard entrance
This palazzo is tucked away behind the Palazzo Fortuny yet only 2 minutes from Campo Santo Stefano – a perfect location

SAN MARCO: This is the historical centre of the town, with the grand Piazza San Marco at its very heart. The buildings are all on a fabulously grand scale. Here you will find most of the designer shops and luxury brands around this area, including a number of fine and historical jewellers hidden among the colonnades of the piazza itself. In high season, this quarter becomes quite crowded; I like to get up early and make a trip to Piazza San Marco at dawn, when the square is delightfully empty and quiet. San Marco maintains property values well.
