A few steps from the Santa Caterina Museum in Treviso, in a recently renovated 19th-century building, Le Convertite is a romantic period residence transformed into a charming B&B by the owner Anna Pagnossin, queen of the art of hospitality, with the magical touch of the architect and interior designer Michele Crema.
A bohemian atmosphere characterizes the warm and enveloping environments where oriental touches, highlighted by white curtains, lanterns, and Moroccan decorations, are mixed with refined vintage objects found in markets around Europe.
The three bedrooms are sumptuous and romantic with four-poster beds and marvelous open bathrooms separated from the bed only by a vintage wrought iron window. Each detail tells a fairytale: from the small chandeliers made of pampilles to the abat-jours resting on bedside tables made of books, from the household linen by Society to the home fragrances by Laboratorio Olfattivo.
Breakfast at Le Convertite is a ritual worthy of a king and is served by candlelight in the large central hall amidst giant exotic plants, the scent of incense, and a mise en place with silverware and porcelain dishes. The cook will delight you with delicious homemade cakes, jams and biscuits, freshly-cooked bread and focaccia, cheeses and cold cuts…On request, she will prepare for you a yummy brunch to get you spoilt before starting the day. And if you need some tips, just follow Anna’s precious advice to discover the best experiences in Veneto.
To complement the impeccable 24-hour service, a waiter is available to guests throughout the day, for any need. At nightfall, Le Convertite releases all its hypnotic charm, thanks to the dozens of candles and lanterns scattered around the house that transport us to a Thousand and One Nights atmosphere. A magic that is also available to external guests: Anna, in fact, organizes on request private dinners or events, an original idea for a romantic evening or a party with a unique and unforgettable atmosphere.
Le Convertite stands where once there was a small church, detached from the nearby sanctuary of Santa Maria Maggiore, used as refuge and place of conversion of the prostitutes of the time, from which the B&B takes its name. The history of the place have guided the restoration of the palace that, inebriated by the parallelism with the story of Madame Butterfly by Puccini (which tells the story of a girl who converts for love to the creed of her beloved), was inspired, both for the walls and accenture furnishings, by the colors of the Night Butterfly.
