A sun-dappled pergola in a garden so rare softly whispers your name in the Dorsoduro sestiere…
Beckoning you to rest easy, settle back and stay awhile within a sleepily serene backwater offering few sounds other than the happy chirruping of contented birds and the fluttering of vines in the gentle breeze, La Baruffa is one of the latest in the series of VOV-owned properties designed with gusto by ArchFlorence to sweep you off your feet.

pretty-as-a-picture ‘pied-a-garden’ for lovers of the ‘real Venice’ offering complete liberation from any busy-life blues, the dainty La Baruffa is a charming confection of peerless craftsmanship, bespoke furnishings and well-coordinated hues.

Situated in the sweetly sedate district known as ‘Incurabili’ between the Guggenheim Collection and the glinting waters of the Zattere promenade, and distinguished by its adorable little wall-mounted wooden shrine to Saint Rita of Cascia, this exquisite apartment with its own private garden sleeps 4 (+1) guests in air-conditioned accommodation arranged over 2 floors.  

Marrying the restorative pleasures of being at one with nature with all the comforts you could wish for in a dream Venetian home, the 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom apartment La Baruffa comprises:  

Ground floor

An independent entrance opening to reveal your surprise ‘giardino segreto’ (secret garden) – a semi-paved oasis of meditation (and holiday celebration!) with palm trees, climbing roses, shrubs, ivy and flowering plants. Furnished with wooden sun-loungers for reclining al fresco, plus ample garden seating and a dining suite beneath a lantern-lit pergola of vines, it’s outdoor living at its loveliest!

A glazed door leading you into La Baruffa’s luxurious open-plan living area dressed in masterfully coordinated patterns and high-end hessian shades offset with sassy splashes of colour against off-white timbers up above. Intimate and inviting, the room comprises -
