A noble eighteenth century villa with canal frontage and surrounded by a secluded park

The epitome of elegant opulence, Villa Franceschi is an eighteenth century Venetian villa with a rich heritage. The noble Dal Corso family restored the property, turning it into a luxurious home which welcomes 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 eighteenth century gardens. This idyllic setting provides both privacy and convenient access to the centre of Venice which can be reached within ten minutes by boat.

Villa Franceschi’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 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, which was left intact, features two grand halls, one on each of the first and second floors and each still 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.

Villa Franceschi sleeps up to 18 guests in its nine elegant en-suite bedrooms. The rooms and suites are located on two floors which can be accessed via the imposing halls of the residence. 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 enchanting 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 enormous attractions, such as its romantic setting on the Venice Riviera, the imposing garden, the extensive outdoor area, elegant reception area and two large living rooms with antique fittings, grand chandeliers and precious paintings, create the perfect space to celebrate special days such as weddings and anniversaries. Furthermore, the residence includes a variety of conference and meeting rooms that are ideal for business functions such as corporate events, conferences and product presentations.
