A noble 18th-century villa with canal frontage, surrounded by a beautiful park

The epitome of elegant opulence, Villa Franceschi is an 18th-century Venetian villa with a rich heritage. The noble Dal Corso family restored the property, turning it into a luxurious home to welcome discerning guests who wish to have a one-of-a-kind holiday experience.

Set on the banks of the River Brenta, this magnificent estate overlooks the waterway and is surrounded by an exquisite secluded park with beautiful plants reminiscent of authentic 18th-century gardens. This idyllic setting provides both privacy and convenient access to the centre of Venice which can be reached within 10 minutes via boat.

The property’s history goes back to a time when great personalities such as Gabriele d’Annunzio and Ernest Hemingway found refuge here for their amorous encounters.

The Dal Corso family when they undertook the restoration of Villa Franceschi did so with great love for the building and were dedicated to conserving its original charm. However, they also incorporated luxurious amenities for pampering their guests and ensuring their total comfort.

The central part of the building was left intact and features two grand halls, each with the original flooring. The grandeur of the property is enhanced by precious paintings, ceilings with the original wooden beams, antique marble fireplaces, terracotta floors and impressive Rezzonico chandeliers.

Up to 18 guests can be accommodated in nine elegant en-suite bedrooms. With incredible views over the secluded park and the Venice Riviera, all bedrooms offer an enchanting ambience where guests can retreat and enjoy the luxury and comfort in complete privacy. The authentic Venetian atmosphere is further enhanced by sumptuous silk fabrics and rich curtains.

This stunning property not only offers aristocratic luxury, but also high-class comfort provided by modern amenities such a cinema room and a wine cellar.

Villa Franceschi’s romantic setting on the Venice Riviera, along with its expansive gardens, elegant reception and living rooms, and grand decor, creates the perfect space to celebrate special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries. Furthermore, the residence includes multiple conference and meeting rooms, ideal for a range of corporate events.
