Tagiapiera Studio Apartment, Completely Renewed in 2021!
Sojourn in Style in a Serene Palazzo Setting and Unlock the Secrets of Palazzo Vendramin…
… A rare collection of fine apartments expertly created within a 15th century canal-side palace near the Church of Santa Fosca in the heart of Cannaregio.
Sensitively steered into the 21st century under the direction of noted Venetian architect Alberto Torsello and interior design team Zanon Associati, Palazzo Vendramin provides a calm, unruffled and historically fascinating backdrop to 8 exceptional new apartments (including Tagiapiera – see its dedicated section below).
Integrating chic Italian design with meticulously restored architectural details such as Venetian terrazzo flooring and colourful frescoes, these remarkable properties range from a well-proportioned studio with shared furnished courtyard, to a bright and beautiful 2 bedroom Piano Nobile apartment, each offering a unique opportunity to sample the joys of elegant palazzo living in one of the most authentic Venetian districts of town.
Standing imposingly on the Fondamenta de Ca’ Vendramin, between the Rio di Santa Fosca and Rio del Trapolin canals well hidden from the tourist footfall yet with an excellent variety of local amenities very close at hand, these impressive apartments enjoy the best of both worlds.
Thought to have once been home to the large and illustrious Vendramin family (merchants trading in oil, cheese and salted meat, and producers and sellers of soap - the latter bringing them great fame and fortune over time), and representing a harmonious blend of the historical and the contemporary, its cavernous communal ‘androne’ hallway with majestic stone staircase and walls embellished with modern art and frescoes provides a fitting welcome to the Palazzo at the start of your stay.
Note that the Palazzo can be reached by private water taxi for easy arrivals and departures from within a few shorts steps of the main Palazzo entrance and that all 8 apartments offer air-conditioning throughout and Wi-Fi as standard.
And with a nostalgic nod to a bygone era, the Palazzo Vendramin apartments have each been named in homage to Venice’s traditional tradesmen and craftsmen, or ‘mestieri’, who in times past would have been familiar characters within ‘La Serenissima’s’ labyrinth of ‘calli’ and ‘campi’.A semi open-plan ground floor studio apartment, tailor-made for 2 (+1) and facing the Rio del Trapolin canal to the rear of the Palazzo, with gorgeous wooden beams, Venetian terrazzo flooring in its spacious main areas, and a shared furnished courtyard.
