It is actually an old Venetian villa built in 1426, which was completely restored leaving all traditional elements untouched. It’s built entirely of stone, featuring archways both on the inside and the outside. Large floor-to-roof windows made of iron and glass perfectly contemplate stone, while wood used in furniture and various surfaces enhances the sense of quality. The ceiling stands 3.6 meters high.
The overall result signals warmth, monastery-like mysticism and aristocracy.
