BAUERs CEO and owner, Francesca Bortolotto Possati, would like to present BAUERs’ newest property: Villa F located in Venice, Italy.  This recently restored 16th century villa officially opened for business in February 2011 and is fully equipped with 11 romantically-rustic units in which one may stay and experience the true Venetian life.

The History

When Bortolotto found what is now known as Villa F, it was completely abandoned; only a remnant of Venetian glory in times past.   But this did not satisfy her.  Bortolotto, a native Venetian, strives to “preserve the culture and historical livelihood of her city” and this is the spirit which impassioned her to purchase and restore the villa.

Villa F once served as a residence for Italian nobility.  It was also very popular in the 20th century when it was known as a high-end pensione called Pensione Frollo.  During that time, it entertained famous actors, painters, and writers such as Eleanora Duse, Mabel Holland, and Gabriele D’Annunzio.

Villa F is now the first and only all-suite residential villa with hotel service in Venice.
