Located in the former charitable institution that surrounds Andrea Palladio's church of Le Zitelle on the Giudecca island, the Bauer group's Palladio is a spacious and tranquil 50-room property. But for all their jazzy hues, the rooms can be a little dowdy; the property's best features are the ground-floor spa, with its extensive range of Daniela Steiner beauty treatments, and the pretty garden with pool. With access to this same garden is Villa F, a canal-side palazzo with 11 austerely grand self-catering suites, ranging from good-size one-bedroom units to the immense St. Mark's–facing Residenza F suite. Nannies and chefs can be arranged, and there's a full concierge service in this palazzo, which used to be an artsy budget hotel frequented by artists and writers.—Lee Marshall
