In 2011, Francesca Bortolotto Possati, the pioneering hotelier behind Bauer Il Palazzo and the Bauer Palladio, opened Venice’s most exclusive new property. The Villa F is located on the Guidecca, a few doors down from the Bauer Palladio, in a 16th-century Renaissance palazzo that was painstakingly and beautifully restored. With eleven palatial one- and two-bedroom residences, the Villa F feels like a private estate, where guests can move in for weeks at a time. With this project, Possati has upgraded the hotel landscape in Venice by providing well-heeled travelers with the ability to experience the city as a local without sacrificing the Bauer’s well-oiled hotel service.

As with all of Possati’s projects, the details of the sumptuous apartments are pitch-perfect, and each are impeccably styled in a contemporary twist on old-world Venetian grandeur. Guests will find original frescoes, Terrazzo floors and Rubelli, Donghia & Jesurum fabrics beside wrought-iron headboards, vintage mirroring and leather furniture. Each apartment is unique and guests have the luxury of selecting theirs in advance. While second-floor units showcase a funky farmhouse aesthetic (picture metallic walls and accents, exposed wooden beams and abstract art); first-floor apartments, categorized as “Venetian Imperial”, feature twenty-plus-foot ceilings, hand-painted murals and living spaces larger than the Villa’s own entrance foyer.

Each residence also comes with butler service; while chefs, nannies and personal concierges are available upon request. Finally, Villa F guests have access to resort amenities at all of the Bauer properties, including a beautifully appointed spa at the Bauer Palladio.

Who Should Stay

The uber-picky who like the idea of staying in an apartment of their own with butler service and don’t mind the slightly removed location on Giudecca Island.
