THE TOWNHOUSE

Studio Giardini is a small townhouse located on the island of Venice, just a step away from the Giardini boat stop and the Biennale entrance. Giardini is the greener part of Venice and only two boat stops away from the beaches of Lido.

Our intention with Studio Giardini is to create a space for hospitality, art and the unexpected.
If you are a friend or friend of a friend please feel free to send an enquiry to rent Studio Giardini

The Townhouse is 90 m² divided into three floors with a shared courtyard. On top is the master bedroom with a bathroom and a round bathtub. The middle floor is the living room with a small balcony and a big sofa, which can be made into two beds. On the ground floor you'll find a fully equipped kitchen made from recuperated marble from an ancient Abbey near San Marco and a courtyard. The house is carefully restored with local Venetian materials.

HISTORY

The ground floor was run as a butcher's shop for over 50 years. Mario ran the shop with his mother living above until she passed away and himself retired. (He complained over too many vegetarians in Venice) It was left untouched for over 10 years when we found it. Like sleeping beauty.
