VILLA F Exclusive

Living as a Venetian Venice, one of the world’s premiere travel destinations, is now home to a unique luxury accommodation resulting from the restoration of a charming 16th century villa by the BAUER’s owner and CEO Francesca Bortolotto Possati. A native Venetian, continuously strives to preserve the cultura! and historical livelihood of her city. In this spirit, Mrs. Bortolotto Passati became passionate about reviving this neglected property on Venice’s Giudecca lsland. The restoration of VILLA F has been exhilarating and the results go beyond any imagination. In origin, the building was the residence of a number of Venetian noble families and, in the earlier part of the 20th century, was converted into an upscale auberge called Casa Frollo. Among its guests were painters, writers, and intellectuals including Gabriele D’Annunzio, Eleonora Duse, and Mabel Holland. T oday, VILLA F inaugurates a new concept of hospitality in Venice, catering to sophisticated, modern travellers who wish to experience Venice as a local. lts eleven palatial accommodations and loft-like suites, beautifully appointed with antiques and textiles from the Region, offer the privacy, space and conveniences of a home combined with the service and professionalism of a great hotel collection. VILLA F is just steps away from the BAUER PALLADIO HOTEL & SPA and guests are welcome to dine at the Palladio Bar & Restaurant or book treatments and massages at the Spa. Using BAUER’s private shuttle boat, clients can cross the canal throughout the day to dine at BAUER’S DE PISIS restaurant.


ANOTHER JEWEL TO BAUER’S CROWN Francesca Bortolotto Passati has taken a wild and euphoric plunge into a particularly redolent period of Venetian history, having rescued from dereliction this sixteenth century noble residence, itself an icon of one of the city’s golden creative ages. With its eleven independent residential suites and three acres private garden, the largest and most beautiful in the city, VILLA F is the only luxury residenti al complexwith hotel service of its kind. Each historical facet has been lovingly restored, playfully and delicately using the vocabulary of eclectic modem design and the finest materials – both modem and antique. Here the pictures painted by the breathtaking views are more reminiscent

of a rare masterpiece than a postcard, with the many suites providing new and arresting aspects on some of the city’ s most famous vistas, such as San Marco and Chiesa della Salute. A familiar prize viewed with new eyes is all the more valuable. In a fascinating knight’s move, Francesca Bortolotto Passati mines the rich sense of living history that breathes through each epic room and sits on each ancient roof beam. Her VILLA F is a truly unique invitation to walk in the echoes of the illustrious former inhabitants, to li ve as a Venetian of noble tastes or an artist engulfed in Venetian creative rapture, rather than the par ade through the picture postcard fantasy that the millions of regular tourists experience here eachyear.
