Our oasis in Venice!
I felt like a princess staying at
In the afternoon there is a free 'cake and tea' set up.. so sweet... and a lovey breakfast every morning. The hotel sits on a canal so you can arrive by water taxi. We walked to the hotel from the train station talking in Venice's beauty. You in the heart of Venice but this gem is tucked down a short corridor, an oasis of peace and beauty.
Palazzo Abadessa is a refined Venetian relais , recognised as a "Period Residence" by the Provincial Authorities and the Monuments and Fine Arts Office of Venice: the building dates back to the late 1500's with frescoed ceilings, authentic antique furniture, precious silk fabrics and paintings from the Tintoretto school.
The hotel had bubbly & chocolates waiting for us in our room.
The garden is one of the hidden treasures of this welcoming Venetian relais: secular trees, multi-coloured, scented flowers and marble benches on which to relax and read a good book.
