Venice Venue 11

Old-fashioned grandeur at its best, and the approach down the narrow alley gives nothing away

Old-fashioned grandeur at its best, and the approach down the narrow alley gives nothing away. This 16th-century beauty has been in the Tiepolo family forever and friendly Lelia oversees the ongoing restoration. Tiepolo, the ground-floor studio, has been cleverly thought out. A beautifully equipped and stocked kitchen tucks behind cupboard doors, the shower room is in a corner and the gem of a dining area overlooks the life of the Grand Canal, and you fall asleep to the lapping waters: such a privileged position.

The palace forms the counterpart to Michele Sanmicheli's palazzo Grimani on the other side of the Grand Canal
In the musical and artistic heart of Venice, there is a house where every guest feels at home. Looking down onto the Fenice Canal or lounging on the sofa
This is a delightful palace on the Grand Canal dating back to the 1600's, and conveniently located between Ca Foscari and Ca Rezzonico
