Live like a Venetian noble at the Ca’Sagredo, a private 15th century palazzo on the banks of the Grand Canal.
This 5 star residence oozes old world charm and is perfectly positioned for exploring the delights of Venice. The 42 rooms and suites are beautifully appointed, with marble bathrooms, views of Venice's rooftops or the Grand Canal, and original features that have been skilfully restored. The elegant suites are individually decorated, with precious silks, gilt mirrors and floor to ceiling windows complementing the Byzantine architecture.
The celebrity chef Michele Potenza sources ingredients daily at the famous Rialto market and produces creative menus for his l'Alcova restaurant, which has a sunny terrace right on the Grand Canal. No need to venture far for an aperitif - the hotel bar l'Incontro serves a wide range of cocktails and Italian wines.
The magical city of Venice is very accessible, and the Ca Sagredo is right in the midst of the action. Opposite the historical Rialto market and close to the Campo Santa Sofia and St Mark's Square, the area is trendy and atmospheric. The palazzo itself houses many works of 16th and 17th century artwork by Venetians Ricci, Bambini and Longhi, displayed in the ornate ballroom and suites.
Ca'Sagredo has recently been declared a national monument, ensuring the continued preservation of this historical and beautiful building.
