A handsome Venetian hideaway with sleepy canal views and a suntrap of a terrace bordering Cannaregio and Castello
Beloved childhood home of its distinguished artist owner whose grandfather built this wonderful and very dignified property in the 1920s, Ca’ Del Glicine - ‘House of the Wisteria’ - sleeps 10 in the lap of luxury within a refined and genteel setting of tall ceilings, pretty stuccoes, art deco parquet flooring and celebrated artwork.
Lovingly renovated with integrity and soul, and displaying all the hallmarks of impeccable taste and understated elegance throughout, Ca’ Del Glicine is on the 2nd floor reached by stairs.
Showcasing all the latest home comforts and first-rate facilities including sparkling new bathrooms, Wi-Fi internet connection, and luxurious bedrooms which are as spacious and welcoming as they are well-appointed, all rooms have individually controlled air-conditioning and radiate from a central inner hallway hung with original art, where a formal dining table for 10 sits beneath a gleaming chandelier.
The surrounding accommodation comprises -
A gorgeous main sitting room in chic neutral colours with plump sofas for lounging, a handy separate bathroom, and glazed double doors opening onto a dreamy and romantic south-facing furnished terrace offering landside views to the spires of Santi Giovanni e Paolo and which, when in season, is clad in the lush and leafy wisteria the owner remembers as a boy
A smart, brand new, fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with integrated appliances and a service bathroom to the side (w.c. and wash hand basin)
5 double bedrooms (all the doble beds can be made into twins - simply ask when booking) , each splendidly attired in plush fabrics and fine furnishings - 3 enjoying views over the ‘Rio De La Panada’ canal (1 with a balcony) and 1 with a balcony looking towards Campiello Widman
2 of the canal-facing bedrooms can be joined together to form a larger unit and all bedrooms have their own immaculately presented en-suite bathroom with large shower or bathtub with shower over
A small personal gym with a top-of the-range running machine, exercise bike, weights machine and its own separate bathroom with shower
A further bathroom with shower on the apartment landing
A ground floor utility room with washing machine and separate tumble dryer
Three families totalling 9 people ages 21-68 thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed the location, neighbourhood and apartment's understated luxury. The lay-out encouraged large gatherings for meals, and a separate living and balcony space for 'space'. The rooms are well-appointed and sized and en suites were lovely. The apartment is well positioned for all local sights and amenities. There were several excellent local restaurants and a 3 minute walk from airport vaporetto stop at Fondamente Novo. The Views on Venice team were responsive and helpful. Our overall impression was that we were locals, living in a calm neighbourhood where everything was at our fingertips.
Great location ~ lovely to be met after arriving on our water taxi to be led to our apartment ~ Saturday morning the Rialto market for some provisions then after the Doge's Palace and a wander along the front ~ and some beers/ice creams ~ back for a many coursed fish supper and the evening took off. Sunday the tower and another wander and in the evening another quiz between the 8 of us. Woke up on Monday morning and from getting out of my bed was six hours later back home in Liverpool ~ all worked to plan!
Heerlijk appartement voor 10 personen of minder. Perfecte ligging om venetie te verkenen met de voet.
Apartement is van alle gemakken voorzien.
My wife & I hosted our 5 grown children and 3 spouses for two lovely weeks in Venice, Lago Como & Santa Margarita. We loved every day. Among our absolutely highlights was the time we spent in the Venice apartment; Ca Del Glicine. There was room for each couple and ample room to lounge and socialize. Clean and convenient to all in Venice. Exceptional service and support. We had a chef prepare dinner one evening and regularly held social / cocktail hour during our stay. Since our return we have commented continuously on the apartment and the wonderful time we had there. My wife is a designer and was impressed with the decorations and space. The location is ideal; close to all, yet off the main route so easy to avoid the "other" tourists. I'd recommend this location for ANY group of ~10 (Ideal for 4-5 adult couples) and look forward to returning myself in the future. I give my highest possible endorsement of Ca Del Glicine!
The support staff was absolutely amazing in every way. They attended to our travel needs beyond our expectations. Starting with the ease of emails and the pre-booked water taxi and personal escort to our apartment. It couldn't have been any easier.
We were so impressed with the service I almost forgot to mention just how beautiful the apartment is. It is large enough to for five couples. Every bedroom is a master suite. The decor and artwork are beautiful. The location was perfect. Just a short walk to all of the major sites but situated off the beaten path so we enjoyed the local Venician life style.
I would highly recommend any of Annalisa 's apartments based on my experience.
We were a group of 10 - 5 mature couples who all loved Ca' del Glicine. It really was perfect for our needs with 5 en suite bedrooms. Common spaces were ideal, the balcony was well used, as was the exercise room. The listing is very accurate - there were no surprises.
The property is well maintained and has been updated beautifully. It has just the right amount of classic touches and modern conveniences. The owners art work is the perfect backdrop for this beautiful apartment.
The communication and service were also perfect. Prior to arrival, emails were promptly answered and all questions/concerns addressed. Our pick up was flawless with 2 groups arriving at different times and places. Our group arrived at the train station and were promptly met with a water taxi. I began texting once we were in Italy and as with the emails all communication was prompt and courteous. The second group came in from the airport and were also promptly met. Both water taxi's were arranged by our Ca' del Glicine contact. We were prepared and paid in cash.
The Cannaregio neighborhood is ideal with easy access to vaporettos. You are in walking distance to all the famous sites of Venice and it's fun to simply wander. There are ample restaurants close by in all price ranges. Literally out the door and a quick turn to the left you will find a delightful restaurant that several in our group enjoyed. Within easy walking distance is a grocery store. We also found a great little wine shop and a bakery with treats we all enjoyed.
We would without hesitation recommend Ca' del Glicine to friends and family and if the opportunity arises, we will visit again.
