“La Palazzina Veneziana” , once a private house in neogothic style and now a refined guest house, is set in one of the most charming corners of Venice. From “Santa Lucia” railway station, if you walk about 500 meters towards Rialto, you’ll reach “Il Ponte delle Guglie” where “La Palazzina” stands.
Guests will appreciate the lovely care profused in every detail by the owner, Mrs Lucia and by her daughter Stefania, who are expert in choosing everything with elegance and refinement in order to assure all their guests an excellent stay in their luxurious and elegant bed and breakfast.
In fact, the Raccanello Family has been working in the hotel business for more than half a century and the care and attention reserved to their guests are reflected in the offer of a sophisticated buffet for breakfast: cereals, delicious jams, honey and fruit in season which can be tasted enjoying a very enchanting view.
From the windows of the western side of “La Palazzina” you can see “Il Ponte delle Guglie”, and in the background you can admire “Palazzo Surian” and “Il Ponte dei Tre Archi” which were painted by the most famous landscape painters of the XVIII century: Carlevaris, Canaletto, Guardi.
From the southern side you can see “Palazzo Labia”, an aristocratic house of the XVIII century enriched by G.B. Tiepolo frescos.
The legend tells us that in the XVIII century, at the end of public dinners, Count Labia threw in the channel below all the golden plates as a sign of flaunted munificence. The legend also tells us that later he ordered someone to recover the plates.
From the large terrace, a quiet and secluded place, you can enjoy the whole view with a glance only.
