B&B VENEZIA - Corte Vecchia

A neighbour told us that once among the Venetian nobles reigned an unwritten rule of mutual aid whereby, if a woman was left widowed and without substance, she was granted a residence where she could stay with her children and servants, keeping the family lifestyle unchanged. It seems that our house was among those used for this purpose. We do not know if this is true, but we like to think that there is a story to tell ;-)

As in all true B & B, we owners live in the building, but we designed the space in order to ensure total privacy and comfort both for our guests and for us.

The three bedrooms (two doubles and one single) are equipped with private bathroom, heating, air conditioning, electric kettle, espresso machine, free WiFi, hair drier.

The rich breakfast served in your room is included in the price.

Small pets allowed with prior notice.

The listing you're seeing is about ROOM CORTE ROSSA:

The term Corte (court) in Venice suggest a little square enclosed by house walls, detached from the main road and mostly without outlet. In the most popular areas of the city women used to sit in corte, just beyond the threshold of the house, doing a variety of household activities such as cleaning vegetables or fish, sewing or doing embroidery, while chatting and exchanging gossip . The courts are still used by most private neighbouring inhabitants as an extension outside their home. This room overlooks the quiet Corte Vecchia (old court) and its main colour is Venetian red. This is a double bedroom (perfect for a couple) and in a corner there is an area for your breakfast, unless you decide to have it in bed. The room has got an en suite bathroom.

Venice historical center

Venice, Veneto

The neighborhood of Dorsoduro is one of the most lively area of Venice, due to the presence of the City Universities and School of Art. At the same time it is not that crowdy and touristic as other areas of Venice. You will sleep in the quietness of a charming passage, few steps from the romantic Zattere promenade.

The B&B is set in a Venetian palace dated before the nineteenth-century and it takes up the entire first floor, traditionally the main floor, which is recognizable from the outside by the large arched windows. To the left of the main facade there is a portal in Istria stone bearing the prints of two family emblems and it leads to the Old Court which the B&B is named after.

Within walking distance of less than ten minutes there are some of the major sites of historical and artistic interest of the city.

Our house is just around the corner of places like the Accademia of Arts, the Guggenheim Museum, the Pinault Gallery, the Salute Church and livelier places like Campo Santa Margherita and the long Zattere Promenade. Lot of bars and restaurant at a short walk distance, 20 minutes walking from Piazza San Marco.

4 waterbus stops are very close to our place (Zattere-Accademia-Salute-Spirito Santo) which connect you very fast with train station, bus station, airport and Lido.
