Ritzy, glitzy, glamorous and bold…! – A San Marco apartment that’s daring to be different in the designer boutique district of bustling San Moisè.
Sleeps up to 9 people
Extravagant, adventurous, pampering and plush, this uniquely presented property will enthrall and delight!
An imaginative interplay of restored original features and state-of-the-art design, the sleeps 9 fully air-conditioned Ca’ Ragionati is laid over 3 floors of a 17th century building just moments from Piazza San Marco.
Entered by way of its own private doorway into a sumptuous hallway which was, once upon a time, the building’s boat shelter or ‘cavana’ and where today discerning guests are greeted and embraced by glass, gold & bronze leaf ‘seriagrafia’ effect surroundings and shielded from the bustle of the busy world beyond.
Softly lit by glittering Bisanzio chandeliers throughout, guests access the apartment’s accommodation on the 2nd floor via the impressive stone stairway – passing a stone relief of the Winged Lion of St. Mark recently discovered during restoration – or alternatively via the gold leaf embellished mirror-lined lift.
Believed to have been linked in years gone by to the adjacent palazzo, and owned by a family who used the building as a venue for engaging in intellectual discussion and debate, accommodation comprises a splendid formal ‘salone’ in typical Venetian style showcasing walls of stuccos, colourful paintings, wooden flooring overlaid with Persian carpets and gorgeous painted beams restored by craftsmen who worked on the Palazzo Ducale itself… while tall double windows furnished in fine devoré velvet give access to a balcony looking over the gondola-plied canal and the flamboyant Baroque exterior of Chiesa San Moisè.
Join the honoured ranks of Venice’s well-heeled cognoscenti as you unwind in the sitting room – a joyful celebration of colour and craftsmanship where an intriguing assembly of furniture collected by Ca’ Ragionati’s well travelled owners vies for your attention alongside windows with balustrades looking onto the view beyond.
The amazing kitchen/dining room takes opulence to new heights with its chandelier illuminated beams and units of glass, gold leaf and black Arabian stone – next to which sits a charming furnished terrace set on what is believed to have once been a passageway or bridge joining Ca’ Ragionati to the palazzo next door (note the delightful pointed Gothic window to the side).
There are 4 master bedrooms dressed in elegant fabrics and fine furnishings, while bathrooms are sparkling and modern in style. They comprise –
- a super-romantic canal-facing master bedroom / boudoir-suite with fabulous multi-coloured stuccos, a sitting area, a double bed within a traditional alcove, plus a small en-suite bathroom with shower and wardrobe to either side.
- 2 double bedrooms to the middle / side of the apartment, one with an en-suite bathroom with shower and each with a double bed that can be split into 2 singles (please advise us of your requirements when booking).
- a 2nd bathroom (bathtub and shower over)
- a 4th bedroom to the rear of the apartment (with double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower)
- and last but not least, a very simple ‘service’ bedroom on the 1st floor (with single bed and an en-suite bathroom with shower) accessed via staircase from the ground floor below
A striking apartment full of swagger and style promising comfort and joy in the very heart of town!
Sharing Campo San Moisè with the 5 star Bauer Hotel and surrounded by the boutiques of some of the biggest names in fashion – think Bulgari, Gucci, Versace, Prada, plus Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and more…
Within a very short walk of Harry’s Bar (which does a mean dry martini!), the Fenice opera house, and to all the must-see sights of Piazza San Marco – the Palazzo Ducale, the Campanile, the Basilica and Clock Tower, plus Caffé Florian and Quadri for taking the weight off your feet.
Also a stone’s throw to the vaporetto (water bus) stop (at Vallaresso) for travelling about town, and to the ‘traghetto’ gondola ferry beside the Hotel Gritti Palace which, during hours of operation, carries its passengers across the Grand Canal to the delightfully laid-back Dorsoduro sestiere.
