Recommended Apartment in Venice: Casanova
In Friendly Rentals, we’ve recently premiered our new destination: Venice. So, when it came to choosing our apartment of the week, the obvious choice was one of our brand-new places to stay in the city of canals; more specifically in the Grand Canal…
It’s said that Giacomo Casanova made a sizeable 132 conquests. And – despite the fact that over the span of his life he was an adventurer, writer, spy and diplomat – across the world Casanova is known for his romantic pursuits. Our apartment of the week was designed for falling in love with, so what name could be more fitting than that of the famous seducer who scandalised Venice for the majority of the 18th century?
The Casanova apartment in Venice is a palatial historic building from the 16th century. You can reach either it on foot or – with a gondola or a water taxi – via the waters of the Grand Canal, meaning that for a few days you can feel like a real Venetian. This apartment has room for six people, making it perfect for travelling as part of a family or group of friends.
Your Venetian accommodation will make you feel as though you’ve arrived in another era. Wide open spaces, richly decorated with period furnishings, wooden fittings, elegant drapes and old-fashioned paintings create a distinct atmosphere that is full of charm. The living room, which features large bay windows, looks over a classic Italian garden (that can be visited on request) and comfortable armchairs where you can relax between visits to the most iconic sites of Venice.
The Casanova apartment offers three bedrooms. The master bedroom contains a double bed and the two remaining bedrooms each contain two individual beds. The kitchen is fully equipped with all those little extras necessary to create delicious, typically Italian dishes in total comfort. Equally recommended, however, is heading out to try some of the local specialities in one of the many restaurants in your area.
If you’ve always dreamed of an unforgettable trip to the City of Water, this apartment in Venice is one of your best options.
