Why terraces and balconies make the difference (even in times of Covid-19)

A selection of terraces and gardens of our apartments in the historic center of Venice

Living the colors and scents of the Lagoon is magnificent. A luxury that we have often taken for granted and which instead appeared to us in all its importance with the lockdown that forced us within the walls of the house. 

Rethinking spaces and our relationship with the sun, air and light has become an imperative after the health emergency. Our apartments in the historic center of Venice offer many solutions of this type, from terraces to gardens to the beautiful doors onto the water that lead the sea directly into the living room.

Here are our recent proposals for living outdoors even in our luxury homes in Venice.


Beauty is also this: being literally immersed in the sun with the lights penetrating from all sides. A magic that very few properties can guarantee. Among our apartments in the historic center of Venice there is a loft created from one of the most fascinating renovations of industrial buildings in the city.

Four huge windows, garden and terrace to admire Venice and the Lagoon from the privileged point of view of the Giudecca. The name of the apartment is already a program:  "Tramonto Veneziano".

- Case a Venezia con terrazzo


A large terrace is the most striking feature of this accommodation, located two steps from Campo San Barnaba . A place to retire to read, have an aperitif, do yoga or simply enjoy the spring.

An open space that will become the center of a house, where the high ceilings, the larch trabeation and the large windows are able to effectively blend interior and exterior.


Imagine being seated in the living room and at sunset, throwing open a large glass door to observe the reflections of the sea, there, close at hand. An accessible dream for the lucky buyers of the Porta sull'acqua, a magnificent apartment in the center of Venice, which has an unparalleled view of the dock of the Misericordia and the northern Lagoon thanks to the typical Venetian water door that illuminates the whole environment. And the sea is there, close at hand.


This real estate jewel stands out among the most beautiful apartments in the historic center of Venice. The generously sized terrace, in the shadow of the bell tower of San Marco, makes this apartment close to Campo Santo Stefano truly unique; an inimitable outdoor space from which to observe the roofs of the city, dine with friends, play with the children or rest accompanied by the sun's rays.


The terrace, the courtyard and the garden with attention to every detail where you can stroll. It seems like a dream but it is a reality for this detached house on the Giudecca Island. 

You can walk among the trees and flowers, stretch out on a lawn or sunbathe on the terrace, staying in a private area. The place is among the most exclusive in the city, the Zitelle area, where the Cipriani hotel and the home of stars like Elton John are located. The buen retiro that we all dream of.

What are you waiting for? Come and discover if among our luxury apartments for sale in Venice there is what is right for you. Strictly with a terrace and breathtaking views, of course
