Ca Favretto was built in the 14 th century and was once home to Venetian artist Giacomo Favretto famed for his realist art. It is how a boutique hotel exuding the charm of a historical Venetian home. Ca Favretto is tucked away in Santa Croce, an older part of Venice on the other side of San Marco square, with a Grand Canal frontage. It is about a 10 minute ride by water taxi from Venice's Santa Lucia station. The water taxi, costing ca. Euro 60, drops you right at the doorstep and is a neat way to start a holiday in Venice!
We had booked the Grand Canal view room which turned out to be on the first floor with an enclosed balcony providing great views of waterway. One of my favourite pastimes while there was looking out the window at the boats going by and letting the sound of tolling bells into the room. Our room, furnished with antique pieces and beautiful coloured glass chandelier and light fittings, was welcoming and clean. It accommodated us comfortably with a queen bed and two singles for our family of four. There was plenty of storage space and a modern en-suite.
Ca Favretto does not have an in- house restaurant but the room tariff came with breakfast served in a second floor salon offering cooked and continental options. There is a small bar on the ground floor with inside seating or choose the outdoor area overlooking the canal. A short walk will take you towards a range of restaurants and pizzerias. Prices vary but the places where we stopped by were generally good.
Staff at Ca Favretto were friendly and efficient. I commend them for their attitude as they did go out of the way to help with a request of mine.
I highly recommend Ca Favretto and I hope that your stay will be as memorable as ours. Note that the hotel is out of the main tourist drag and this is an added bonus.
