Palazzo Corner Gheltoff

Venice - San Marco
Accommodation
Description

Picture a palace... a bohemian beauty, lavish in luxury and whispering privilege. Now pass through its doors and embark on a journey through richness and opulence, true comfort and style. 

Overlooking the Grand Canal, benefitting from 2 superb terraces and occupying the top 2 floors of the 16th-century Palazzo Corner Gheltoff Alvera in the hushed and genteel San Samuele parish of San Marco, Palazzo Alverà sleeps 15 guests in accommodation that can only be described as 'extraordinary'. 

Comprising 2 connected apartments and reached via the palazzo's private water entrance on the Grand Canal (if arriving by water taxi), or via its delightfully leafy private garden with ancient well-heads to the rear (if arriving by foot), the palazzo combines vivid imagination and unflinching good taste with magnificent artistry and skilled craftsmanship all blending together to create a feast for the eyes and a joy for the senses.

Rewarding guests with delightful discoveries at every turn and conjuring up both the elegance of past times and an atmosphere reminiscent of the distant lands and ancient trade routes on which Venice built her vast historic empire, Palazzo Alverà is reached by lift to the 4th floor and features well-proportioned living space plus all the latest facilities, including air-conditioning, Wi-Fi and maid service (on request).

Apartment 1 comprising:

  • At the centre of the antique-filled apartment, a fabulous beamed main living room/salon and reception hallway – effortlessly chic and decked out in precious oriental rugs, deep comfy sofas and walls lined with literature, portraiture and landscape paintings, off which is a splendid balcony overlooking the Grand Canal and the breathtaking city skyline

  • An eat-in kitchen with a distinct oriental flavour presented in jade greens, china blues and lacquer reds and expertly equipped with everything one could require

  • A vaulted dining room – warm and intimate courtesy of its rich wooden flooring, shimmering silk and leather furnishings and subtle lighting – with access onto a furnished terrace of its own

  • A further sitting room – characterful, quaint and cosy in ambience

  • 4 beautifully attired double bedrooms

  • The softly feminine 'Rezzonico' bedroom with double bed , a large closet area and an en suite bathroom with bathtub and separate shower

  • The 'Frari' bedroom with its sloping beamed ceiling (with twins that can be made into a double) and marble-clad en suite bathroom with bathtub

  • The 'Rialto' bedroom with double bed, 'looking glass' features and an en suite bathroom with double-width shower

A staircase from the reception hallway rising up to

  • The deeply romantic 'San Marco' master suite with its strikingly painted wooden flooring and access at its far end to a wonderful 'altana' roof terrace overlooking the Grand Canal; a sumptuously decorated 'room at the top' presented in muted tones and featuring sloping ceilings, a study area with fabulous views of both St. Mark’s Campanile and the Rialto Bridge, a kilim cushion strewn day bed, plus a sleeping area with velvet draped double bed and en suite shower room which can be separated for enhanced privacy by closure of the double leaded glass doors and silk curtains dividing the room



Apartment 2 comprising:

  • A bright and airy living room with traditional terrazzo flooring, fine textiles and period furnishings, a beautifully decorated beamed ceiling, deep velvet sofas and windows opening onto a terrace with a fantastic view over the rooftops towards San Marco, Salute, the Fenice and the famously leaning campanile of Santo Stefano

  • Just off the living room, the 'Fenice' double bedroom – comfortable, elegantly decorated and with twin beds (which can be made into a double on request) and its own en suite bathroom with marble lined shower

  • A charming dining room furnished with portraits and antiques

  • A kitchen equipped with all the necessary appliances, and to one side…

  • A dual level 'Loft' bedroom with single sitting area and bathroom with bathtub below and a cosy yet stylish sleeping area with double bed on the mezzanine level

A staircase from the 4th floor takes guests upstairs to

  • A splendid triple bedroom with a low and impressively beamed ceiling, strikingly painted wooden flooring and 3 single beds (2 of which can be prepared as a double) while an en suite bathroom with bathtub completes the accommodation

  • Notre séjour au Palazzo Alverá a été parfait du premier au dernier jour. L'appartement est en même temps somptueux et accueillant. Notre groupe familial de 11 personnes (de 71 à 8 ans) a pu s'y installer avec tout le confort et profiter de la vue magnifique que son emplacement proportionne. Tony - en charge du maintien de l'appartement, nous a apporté une aide précieuse. Et Rachele, notre contact à VOV associe sympathie, politesse et efficacité d'une façon rare. En résumant: un séjour privilégié.

  • My family and I have just spent the most idyllic Christmas week imaginable at the Palazzo Alvera Altana. The Alvera has all the space and warmth of a private home with a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere. The house manager, Tony, offers superb services. Words cannot fully express our appreciation to Rachele for her professionalism, personal attention and countless excellent, supportive suggestions while planning and during our visit. We spent an unforgettable week in Venice and cannot recommend VOV and Palazzo Alvera Altana highly enough.
