Waking up in the morning to the captivating sounds of the vaporettos, the gondoliers, the lapping waters, the holy bells of San Giorgio Maggiore, the soft whispering breeze… Living right in the throbbing, historic heart of the Serenissima, just minutes away from the Piazza San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale, the Punta della Dogana…

Ca’nova… This name, in the dialectal Italian of Venice, is a contraction of Casa Nova, new house. And indeed, the Ca’nova historical Palazzo has been entirely renovated and given a new lease on life.

The apartment Borsato lies on the third floor (4th American floor) of the Palazzo. It is reached by a newly added elevator. The location is exceptional: at the mouth of Venice’s Grand Canal, opposite the Santa Maria della Salute basilica and the Punta della Dogana museum – where the Pinault contemporary art collection can be seen, – and within a stone’s throw of the glorious Piazza San Marco.

The apartment has been redecorated in a pure, classic style with a contemporary twist. Surrounded by comfort and beauty, you will feel spoilt and privileged too. Daily maid service in the mornings. Access to a convivial terrace shared by all guests of the Palazzo. A private secretary. Restaurants and shops in the vicinity – among which the well-known Harry’s Bar, declared a national landmark in 2001 by the Italian Ministry for Cultural Affairs.

The palazzo's private secretary will readily give you pointers and assistance, as well as open doors for you if need be.

The origins of the Ca’nova Palazzo date back to the 12th century, when the Barozzi family built the Ca’Barozzi, a crenellated building which had a porch, an open gallery and two large square towers. In the 17th century, the medieval structure was remodelled into a Renaissance palazzo by architect Bartolomeo Manopola.

In the early 19th century, the Treves family, barons of Bonfili, acquired the residence and asked Giuseppe Borsato – an Italian painter who, among other things, decorated the Teatro La Fenice – to revamp and enhance their new property.

The Treves family vividly exemplifies the emancipation of the local Jewish community and its full integration into the Italian society of the 19th century.

We were extremely happy and flattered when the owners of this outstanding residence chose at Trust&Travel to take care of the redecorating and promotion of its exceptional apartments.
