One of VOV’s most successful restorations to date & raising the quality of our portfolio to newly-scaled heights, we’re delighted to welcome apartment ‘Gondolieri’ between Dorsoduro’s Guggenheim Collection and the Zattere promenade.
Ideally positioned for lovers of the ‘real Venice’, this ultra-chic apartment and its south-facing sunny frontage sleeps 6 guests in accommodation set over over 2 floors.
A luxurious retreat for chilling out with friends and loved ones, and a base where longed for ‘me-time’ can come above all else, Gondolieri’s smart interior is a showpiece of refinement with all creature comforts simply waiting to be enjoyed.
Accessed via its own private entrance on the tranquil little ‘Calle Navaro’ in the sleepy-calm district known as ‘Incurabili’, this attractive Venetian ‘casa’ is the fruit of a collaboration between top architects ArchFlorence and the team at VOV.
Its design is Moorish, its spirit Venetian, and furnishings will resonate with those only used to the very best – from wonderful hand-crafted fittings and finishes, sumptuous designer textiles, and superb lighting in all the right places, to sparkling new bathrooms, top appliances in the kitchen and carefully selected beds that promise a heavenly night’s sleep – and all of this topped with a splendid ‘altana’ terrace looking over the Venetian rooftops to the Bell Tower of St. Mark’s.
Bright, elegant and with air-conditioning throughout, this special new property offers Wi-Fi connection and comprises –
A private entrance and hallway, with stairs rising up to the
First floor where you’ll find:
A exquisite sitting room featuring stylish eau-de-nil ‘Venetian Marmorino’ polished plaster walls, plenty of comfortable seating, whitewashed beams overhead and whitewashed wooden flooring underfoot
A dining area to the side seating 6 guests around a circular dining table with smartly upholstered chairs, and a feature wall papered in Cole & Son’s ‘Palm’
A fully fitted kitchen custom-built kitchen with a Miele fridge and oven, and bespoke units in a teal green with travertine worktops
An exceptional master bedroom with a double bed, wooden beams, stylish Tapet-Cafe ‘Deco Fan’ wallpaper and fabric, a mirrored wardrobe, and its own bathroom to the side featuring Bisazza mosaic and a bathtub with shower over
A dainty and delightful 2nd bedroom in a powder-blue bringing to mind the vivid colours of the village of Chefchaouen near Tangier in Morocco, with a French size / small double bed, a pretty mirror-and-fretwork-fronted wardrobe, & its own en suite bathroom with mocha Marmorino and a shower enrobed in clay and lapis-hued tiling
A staircase with the original wrought-iron and wooden-topped balustrade rising to the
Second floor and home to:
An additional spacious sitting / TV room beneath wooden eaves decorated along a boating theme and furnished with a writing desk and an extra-large double sofa-bed in handsome herringbone upholstery
A 3rd bedroom presented in a warm and uplifting tangerine orange with ancient burnished timbers overhead and a beautifully dressed double bed (which can be divided into twins upon your request) and with a pair of wardrobes, one to each side
And across a sweet little ‘bridge’ with balustrade over the stairway below
A 3rd bathroom in blue Marmorino with a bathtub and separate shower
And steps rising up to the rooftop & to the wonderful ‘altana’ terrace – fully furnished for unwinding as the sun gently goes down or for taking your breakfast before exploring the town
A Venetian Old-Timer becomes the New Kid in Town!
A marvelous new apartment restored by skilled professionals to offer guests the most enjoyable combination of luxury and charm possible with an interior that’s as bright, comfy and as pleasurable as can be!

A scenic waterside stroll to the Conad supermarket at the Zattere’s western end, and close to four vaporetto (water bus) stops – Zattere, Zattere Spirito Santo, Salute* and Accademia – for easy travel around town, plus the Alilaguna boat stop connecting the Zattere to Venice’s Marco Polo Airport.
A short walk to the ‘traghetto’ gondola ferry at Calle Lanza/Calle del Traghetto S. Gregorio which ferries passengers across the Grand Canal to the district of San Marco.
