Palazzo Angelo on the Grand Canal
An extraordinary 15th-century palazzo of exceptional beauty, revealing its secrets to the fortunate few, on the banks of the Grand Canal.
Rarely do we see a Venetian property of such standing and so immaculately restored that it takes one’s breath away.
So let us introduce you to the Gothic Palazzo Angelo gently kissing the water’s edge between the Rialto and San Samuele, yet away from the crowds and offering ravishing views, moments from Campo Sant’ Angelo in the ‘sestiere’ of San Marco.
Sharing this super-prestigious stretch of the Canale Grande with such historically hallowed neighbours as the famous Palazzo Mocenigo and the fairytale Palazzo Pisani Moretta directly opposite, the illustrious Palazzo Angelo encapsulates 4 superior apartments, each set to exceed your expectations of a Venetian luxury rental property.
Marrying a meticulously considered décor with a timeless air of privilege (along with a sense that a Venetian ‘home’ simply doesn’t get better than this!) the palazzo can host up to 28 guests when booked exclusively and boasts an exclusive Grand Canal water gate (porta dell’ acqua) for direct travel by private water taxi.
Once the property of the ancient Garzoni family (originally from Bologna, they later became citizens of the Venetian Republic) and once home to the magnificent library of the notable historian, Pietro Garzoni (1652-1719), the palace is blessed with a truly memorable panoramic vista captured by Canaletto in his 1725 painting ‘Grand Canal: Looking North-East towards the Rialto Bridge’.
Discretely accessed landside via its ‘secret’ arch-and-column-fringed internal courtyard, Palazzo Angelo’s 4 apartments are of differing sizes and styles.
Served by stairs and lift and offering a host of contemporary accoutrements (including air-conditioning and Wi-Fi)
