The little palace where the la perla apartment is situated was built several centuries ago - as most of the Venetian buildings- and it has been difficult to restore to its original state.
Two full years of intense restoration has recuperated its artistic and cultural beauty so well known all over the world.
The main structure has been kept due to strict rules of our monument conservation sovrintendenza that forbids futuristic transformations.
LA PERLA apartment has three areas about the same size and facing the canal. We were able to obtain a large living room, a medium kitchen, three bedrooms, two large bathrooms without changing the outside fantastic look. From each room you can enjoy a unique panorama mostly on the canal and open space around.
The floors are in jroko wood cut in large boards and inserted along the wall in a wide sheet of pietra d'Istria (recuperated from the restoration) and treated with bee wax. This gives an extraordinary brightness to the room.
The bathrooms are really luxurious all in marble. The bathroom with bathtub is in pesco di Verona marble recalling the pietra d'Istria of the other room.
The bathroom with twin lavatories and shower is in travertino fiorito marble and stone.
The original ceiling beams and the marmorino finishing of the walls, as well as all other details speak of a true venetian house.
The furnishing is elegant. We chose good quality for the beds, the furniture and the well equipped kitchen. Avoiding any exaggeration. You have all the space to create your own atmosphere. The location of the house is rather central within walking distance you can reach the Academy area, the Frari and Saint Rocco churches. In 15 minutes you can go to Saint Mark's square and the Doge's Palace, via 22 marzo with its famous boutiques.
If you want to rest for a while you can sit in one of the small cafe in the minor squares inhabited by Venitians and not invaded by tourists. You can stroll in Saint Barnaba square or along the Zattere facing the basin. In the evening you can have a full immersion in the very lively campo Santa Margherita, general meeting point for a sprtiz, a Venetian typical aperitivo.
This is our Venice, the Venice we like to offer you.
