Palazzo Abadessa Venice, Italy

“Restored 16th-century palazzo with spacious frescoed rooms, full of antiques and Murano glass. Bursting with history and character. Four poster beds, heavy curtains and patterned wallpaper adorn the rooms. Drinks are served in a walled terrace with shaded seating. Truly regal living.”

“This fine 16th-century palazzo in atmospheric Cannaregio was the home of its owner, Marisa Rossi, who continues to create the feel of a grand house party amongst her guests. The splendid stuccoed and frescoed rooms are furnished with antiques, silks and Murano glass, while a magnificent first floor salone is reached by a rare (for Venice) double staircase, and a secret walled garden lies outside. The real thing.”

"With its beautiful heirloom antiques and frescoed ceilings, Palazzo Abadessa is every inch the aristocratic family palace."

Palazzo Abadessa

"Respectable, modestly priced, classic but unflashy, away from the melee in slow-paced Cannaregio, and with a sunny walled garden for breakfast, quiet contemplation, a gentle snooze or a sharpener from the honesty bar."
