The O'Toole house was built at the beginning of the 20th century and it is one of the few examples of Venetian liberty style. It is separated from the church Santa Maria della Salute by a small river, which links the Canal Grande channel to the Giudecca Channel. The building has recently been restored while respecting its original features. It is equipped with all modern comforts.
The house is located in a strategic position. It is near one of the most beautiful Venetian churches: Santa Maria della Salute, the masterpiece of the architect Baldassarre Longhena that dates from 1681. The church is located at the entrance of the Canal Grande (its staircase goes from the water until the church square). It is part of the Punta della Dogana area, where once the goods coming from the sea went through custom clearance and which was the most important defence point against pirate attacks.
The O'Toole house is located in the "Zattere" zone, a large pedestrian area between Punta della Dogana and the harbour, where large cruise boats start their journey. This promenade is well known to both Venetians and tourists, as it is the ideal place for enjoying a nice walk or drinking a coffee in the bars along the way.
Starting from the O'Toole House and crossing the Canal Grande, you will reach San Marco Square in the historical city centre. Our house is also near to the Guggenheim Museum. In ten minutes walking you arrive to the Accademia Bridge: the Austrian government built this wooden construction in the 19th century. Just in front of the bridge you will find the Academy Gallery with the most precious collection of Venetian paintings: from Giorgione to Tiziano, from Tintoretto to Tiepolo.
Continuing on this way you will arrive to Santo Stefano Square with its bars and restaurants. This area is very popular both among Venice's inhabitants and tourists. In certain periods during the year you can visit there the antiquities market, the book fair, the August exhibition or the famous Palazzo Grassi, where many international cultural events take place.
The San Giorgio Island is just on the other side of the Giudecca Channel. There you can visit the Giorgio Cini Foundation, a cultural centre for international congresses and a famous reference point for VIPs.
