Description

 
A memorable apartment with an astonishing 'altana' roof terrace, enviably situated on the top floor of the 15th Century Palazzo Mocenigo 'Ca' Vecchia' on the Grand Canal - the oldest palazzo within the legendary family of ancient Venetian palaces along this stretch collectively known as 'Palazzo Mocenigo' and sharing its prestigious canal side setting with its 'next door neighbour' property, the one-time Venetian bolthole of 'mad, bad and dangerous to know' British romantic poet and literary figure, Lord Byron (1788-1824). A rare opportunity to experience the endless pleasures of Venice from one of the most distinguished and hauntingly atmospheric locations in the entire city.
 
Expertly renovated with great finesse and a quiet patrician elegance, Ca' Del Mercante offers internet, air-conditioning throughout and accommodates up to five guests in comfort on the third floor, served by lift. It comprises a

 
A memorable apartment with an astonishing 'altana' roof terrace, enviably situated on the top floor of the 15th Century Palazzo Mocenigo 'Ca' Vecchia' on the Grand Canal - the oldest palazzo within the legendary family of ancient Venetian palaces along this stretch collectively known as 'Palazzo Mocenigo' and sharing its prestigious canal side setting with its 'next door neighbour' property, the one-time Venetian bolthole of 'mad, bad and dangerous to know' British romantic poet and literary figure, Lord Byron (1788-1824). A rare opportunity to experience the endless pleasures of Venice from one of the most distinguished and hauntingly atmospheric locations in the entire city.
 
Expertly renovated with great finesse and a quiet patrician elegance, Ca' Del Mercante offers internet, air-conditioning throughout and accommodates up to five guests in comfort on the third floor, served by lift. It comprises a large and wonderfully bright and airy L-shaped main sitting/ dining room with no fewer than five windows over the Grand Canal offering superb vistas of such well-known Venetian landmarks as the Church of the Frari, the 'Traghetto' at San Toma, Ca' Foscari and so much more besides. The room's warm, highly polished wooden flooring and ample sofas welcome guests to the comforts of home after an action-packed day of sightseeing or a fun-filled diary of social engagements, while stylish touches such as gilded antique mirrors, oriental rugs, graceful wall sconces and exquisite period furniture uphold the wonderful over-riding aura of restrained good taste. 
  
The dining area is furnished with seating for six while the relatively simple yet fully-fitted kitchen is well-equipped with everything necessary for easy self-catering. 
 
There are two highly appealing bedrooms on this level - a very comfortable master bedroom overlooking the Grand Canal and with a double bed (this can be made into twins - simply ask when booking) and an up-to-date en suite bathroom with bathtub and shower over, plus a second bedroom also with fabulous Grand Canal views and a very romantic antique 'French' size bed offering plenty of room for one. Also on this floor are two further bathrooms, one with a bathtub and the other with a shower and a washing machine for added convenience.
 
A wooden staircase leads up to the third bedroom - a snug and peaceful 'top of the house' retreat with characterful twin beds which can also be made into a double (please ask when booking) and from which a further very short wooden staircase allows guests access to what must be one of the most wonderful and highly-prized features of the entire property - an amazing furnished 'altana' roof terrace with breathtaking views to capture the imagination at every turn, drawing the eye from the Campanile at St.Mark's to the Teatro La Fenice, from the tilting tower of Santo Stefano to the domes of Santa Maria Della Salute and from the atrium of Palazzo Grassi to San Polo, over partial glimpses of the Grand Canal.
  
OUR COMMENT
A 'top tier' property - and in more ways than one, offering great comfort, superb views and a truly memorable Venetian experience within the august surroundings of one of Venice's most notable addresses.
Close to Campo Santo Stefano, the Accademia Bridge/ Academy of Fine Arts and less than two minutes walk to the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art in an exclusive area known for its antique shops and galleries.
Everyday needs are met by a grocery/ delicatessen, wine shop, restaurants, wine bars and cafes, while two nearby vaporetto stops (San Samuele - Line 2 and Sant' Angelo - Line 1) and two 'Traghetto' services allow for easy travel around the city (the latter ferrying passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal - one service operating between San Samuele and Ca' Rezzonico and the Museum of 18th Century Art in the district of Dorsoduro and the other operating between Calle Del Tragheto near Sant' Angelo and San Toma in the district of San Polo).*
Moments to the gallery of interior designer Chiarastella Cattana - a discreetly sophisticated showroom of fine and distinctively woven textiles and furnishings and, for scent-lovers, steps away from the Venice outlet of the famous Florentine 'Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella' – one of the oldest pharmacies in the world and one time fragrance maker to Catherine de' Medici.
