Treat yourself and stay in this impressive 17th-century Venetian family Palazzo on the Grand Canal. The Borsato apartment has superb views onto the Grand Canal with its singing gondoliers and vaporetti. The other two: Canella and Hayez are also light–filled from tall windows and calmly overlook the attractive square and roofscapes to the back; Canella has an attic room on the 6th floor and a roof top terrace. All are flawlessly, traditionally elegant with antiques on Persian carpets under lofty ceilings. Contemporary touches include supremely comfortable beds, designer lighting, stencils and fabrics, luxurious marbled and mirrored bathrooms and spotless, well-equipped kitchens complete with Nespresso machines. Fresh croissants are brought to you each morning by caring staff – the butler can accompany you shopping. There are arrangements for guests to dine at the Westin Europa next door, and to use the Cipriani Club and Pool, reachable in 20 minutes including a 5-minute courtesy boat ride. Stroll to Piazza San Marco; Rialto Bridge and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection are just 12 vaporetto minutes away.
