The Portia apartment puts its residents right at the heart of Venice with access to some of its most exclusive addresses. Able to accommodate five people over three bedrooms, the flat forms part of a private palazzo which dates back to the 12th century. Having been owned and loved by the same family for over 200 years, the complete building was restored and modernised with luxury holidays in mind in 2018.
The interiors pay homage to Venetian and Italian art with frescoes and Mediterranean colours throughout. The area is also modern with clean lines and marble surfaces. Situated on the third floor, access is gained by elevator and any holiday here also includes the services of the palazzo’s concierge. This local expert is able to help with dinner and theatre bookings, as well as insider information on the best places to visit – and at the best time to avoid all the tourists.
The apartment has access to a shared terrace which is a wonderful area for drinks and early evening snacks, as well as for dining if you would choose. Portia also has a private rooftop terrace – with views over the Venetian skyline and a nearby quiet square. In close proximity to the Grand Canal and the Piazza San Marco, you can fill your days with Venetian treasures and your evenings in quiet relaxation.
