The Canova apartment is a luxuriously renovated Venetian home with a peaceful garden view located next to Campo San Polo a few steps from the Grand Canal.

This is a Japanese inspired two-bedroom apartment of about 150 square meters found at the first floor of a historic building.

Walking up the stairway that leads to the large central living room that is full of charm and history you immediately feel the prestige of this property. Original Palladiana flooring, antique exposed wooden trusses, very high ceilings, original tall arched windows, and walls decorated with Venetian stucco show that no expense was spared in the exacting restoration recently executed by the owner.

A sophisticated Japanese style permeates the décor: details can be seen throughout the apartment in the choice of the Dansu cabinet and Oriental tables, precious silk textiles, artwork, lacquered containers, and ikebana. There is an antique extendable dining table that can seat up to eight people. The designer kitchen is equipped superbly with high-tech appliances and is also graced with a single beautiful gothic window. The two remarkably beautiful king size bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, are located on opposite sides of the living room ensuring total privacy. Each bedroom has a relaxing garden view and plenty of natural light. Both en-suite bathrooms are luxurious, one even has an antique sculpted stone sink.

The Canova is also highly technological: there is a wide-screen TV with sound system, air-conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi, a smart lighting system, a laundry room with a washing machine and dryer, induction stove, professional oven, large fridge with freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker and more.

The Canova apartment is located in a part of the San Polo District that is full of charming local restaurants, boutiques and artisan shops, yet tucked away from the bustle. From this “oasis of peace”, as we call it, it takes about five minutes to reach the Ponte Rialto (Rialto Bridge) and about 10 minutes to reach the Ferrovia (train station) or Piazzale Roma (car park), while the Vaporetto (water bus) stop San Tomà is just four minutes away.

The most exclusive and convenient way to access the apartment is by private water taxi, with drop-off just steps from the apartment. The trip across the lagoon from the airport takes under half an hour.

The privileged guests of the Canova apartment can take advantage of a top-quality maid service, waitressing and “Home Chef” service available on request. We recommend the Canova to extremely discerning travellers as such a high level of exclusivity is very rare, truly a 5-star home!
