There are eleven suites, all with their unique character owing to the historical nature of the property. Original features such as the antique wooden doors and panelled ceilings are complimented by strikingly contemporary design pieces.
Nestled on a quiet street in Venice’s San Marco neighbourhood, the Corte di Gabriela has an eco-friendly philosophy and a bold contemporary décor that perfectly compliments the original 19th-century palace. Antique furnishings sit beside design pieces by Vitra and Alivar, Flos and Luceplan, creating a chic, relaxed vibe.
Owner Gian Luca has taken care to create a peaceful haven amidst the bustle and vigour of Venice’s canals, and this philosophy is evident everywhere from the relaxing inner courtyard to the stunning breakfasts prepared by Gian Luca himself, which will set you up perfectly for days spent exploring the Floating City.
The elegant inner courtyard is a peaceful spot to relax, with stylish iron tables set around the original 19th-century well and surrounded by verdant wisteria. On summer evenings, a complimentary aperitif is served to guests in the courtyard, consisting of a glass of prosecco and some freshly prepared nibbles from the kitchen. During the colder months, tea is instead served in the cosy indoor reading room, so snuggle up on one of the large sofas in front of the grand piano and enjoy a mug of coffee or hot chocolate and a freshly baked pastry.
Corte di Gabriela is located in the San Marco neighbourhood, within walking distance from many of Venice’s most recognisable landmarks. Watch gondolas whisk down the Grand Canal, summon the ghosts of Venice’s rich past at the Rialto Bridge, or take in the iconic splendour of the Piazza San Marco.
Owner and chef Gian Luca firmly believes that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and the spectacular spread at Corte di Gabriela takes the meal to truly luxurious heights. A moka full of steaming Italian coffee is set in the centre of the original wooden carpenter’s bench used as a breakfast table, and it is surrounded by savoury delights such as mini pizzas, savoury strudels, locally produced coppa ham, and fresh Asiago cheese, to sweet treats like croissants bursting with dark chocolate, ricotta and amaretti cake, and fruit tarts. The breakfast menu changes depending on the seasons and Gian Luca’s mood, but it is guaranteed to delight you every day.
There is no restaurant at Corte di Gabriela, but the kitchen can prepare light meals and salad throughout the day, to be eaten in the privacy of your own room.
