It is an intimate yet charming 3 floors apartment for private and refined Stay. The ground floor consists on an eclectic lounge with white velvet sofa and a black marble fireplace and has its own private gondola landing stage ! Bedroom and main bathroom are located on the first floor, while a lovely 10 square meters terrace on the top floor offers you an amazing view of the Salute’s Church and the Giudecca Island up to San Giorgio Island.
