The villa is situated on the Calle Dose da Ponte and the Grand Canal. There are only 3 apartments in the building so it is very private. There is a private jetty for the Calle which is just outside the villa, so the water taxi stops there and then its about 10 meters to the door to the villa.As per the historic nature of Venice, most residential buildings do not have elevators. This is true for this villa. There are two levels of stairs before you enter the villa. If you need assistance with luggage, we can arrange a proffer service to meet you at your water taxi.
