Condo/Apartment
The Michiel is a newly restored luxury apartment embodying the real essence of the Venetian houses. It is found at the first floor of an historical palace located in the western part of the Cannaregio district, only one minute walk to the well-known Campo Santi Apostoli and 5 minutes’ walk to the Rialto Bridge and its colorful open-air market. It is a convenient location close to everything, tucked away from the crowd, easy to reach from both public transports or water taxi. The private entrance hall at the ground floor tells you a lot about the long history of this place: century old raw bricks, wooden beams and stone sculptures match up with antique furniture. The super-spacious living room can be accessed through a large antique wooden stairway.

It is found at the first floor of an historical palace located in the western part of the Cannaregio district, only one minute walk to the well-known Campo Santi Apostoli and 5 minutes’ walk to the Rialto Bridge and its colorful open-air market. It is a convenient location close to everything, tucked away from the crowd, easy to reach from both public transports or water taxi. The private entrance hall at the ground floor tells you a lot about the long history of this place: century old raw bricks, wooden beams and stone sculptures match up with antique furniture. The super-spacious living room can be accessed through a large antique wooden stairway. Here is found an beautiful antique dining table and plenty of sitting space on comfortable sofas. The living room and two bedrooms face a small and quiet square facing south and are inundated with light, while the rest of the house receive little sun but is well illuminated artificially. Every piece of furniture in this house is precious, dating back one or more centuries, including the stunning original sculptured doors: tenants who have the privilege to stay at the Michiel apartment should take care of the furniture to avoid damages. The care taking landlord didn't compromise on technology either: the 2 bathrooms are completely new and very functional with large shower box, the kitchen is spacious and very well equipped with every possible amenity, there is air conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi internet connection, large flat-screen TV with international channels (Sky Tv), DVD player, good sound system, washing machine, dishwasher, etc. We suggest the Michiel apartment to demanding guests, possibly adults or anyway responsible children. We also recommend to catch a private water taxi to reach the apartment especially if you carry plenty of luggage. The 3 bedrooms can be prepared either as 1 double and 2 twins or as 2 doubles and 1 twin, please specify how to prepare the beds. Additional amenities include: iron & ironing board, smoking not permitted, central location, first or ground floor, hairdryer, very spacious.More
