Superbe !

  • 5 out of 5
Pas d'autres mots que superbe. Idéalement placé à 3mn à pied du pont rialto mais au calme. L'appartement se situe au dernier étage d'un palais vénitien authentique. 2 chambres avec chacune sa sdb donc parfait pour deux couples. Une cuisine moderne avec tout le nécéssaire. Une terrasse très grande pour prendre les pdj et repas. Bref, que du bonheur, je recommande fortement pour un séjour de rêve dans la plus belle ville du monde !!

Absolutely stunning property.

  • 5 out of 5
The penthouse in the Palazzo Albrizzi on the Campiello Albrizzi, a small quiet square in San Polo. An easy walk from the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge.

Beautifully appointed and cared for and the housekeeper is a jewel. We also met the owner and fell in love.

Perfection at the Penthouse

  • 5 out of 5
The Penthouse in San Polo made our vacation truly Great!
My wife and I had been to Venice several times over the years before we met. Each of us had liked it so much that we made it the only destination on our first real vacation together.
After looking long and hard on-line for the “right place” -- nice hotels and apartments -- I kept going back to the Penthouse. My intuition said “this is the place!” I called the owner Orsola and she was fantastic – fluent in English, helpful, informative, interesting…someone I wanted to meet. I booked the place and she arranged a water taxi to meet us at the airport. Before we knew it we were high atop the thoroughly updated 800 year old Campiello Albrizzi.
The location is superb -- just far enough off the tourist routes to be the perfect place for us to relax and yet only a 2 or 3 minute walk to any markets or shops you may need, and a superb restaurant and a wonderful small trattoria are literally just 1 minute from the spectacularly grand entry hall that leads to the elevator. The Rialto Bridge and many other excellent restaurants, shops and attractions are less than 10 minutes away, and we easily walked to all of the famous tourist destinations, including San Marco Square, the Guggenheim the Ghetto and much more.
The VRBO pictures of the inside do not do the apartment or the views from the two terraces justice – Venice unfolds below you and you can see forever on clear days. We like to cook – it’s kitchen had what we needed, including a new oven and dishwasher. There is a huge classical CD collection and player, cable TV, clothes washer and very good Wi-Fi and more. Each bedroom has a very comfortable American style queen size bed, air conditioning/heat, lots of closet space and en suite bathrooms with European style combination tub/showers.
Orsola was amazingly helpful -- recommending places to go and superb restaurants and experiences, including a wonderful tour of "the lagoon" that surrounds the main part of Venice.
We thoroughly enjoyed the beauty and tranquility inside the apartment, especially as we gazed at the moon and stars while drinking or dining al fresco at night.... We already are looking forward to returning there.

Absolutely Spectacular

  • 5 out of 5
This is a penthouse of superlatives… it is head and shoulders higher than the surrounding buildings of Venice affording magnificent views. The white marble terrace is possibly the highest in town and a delightful place to relax in the cushy deck chairs, and yes, there is a lift / elevator. The interior is vast with huge overhead beams, fine antique furnishings and a designed marble floor. The two bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom, are perfect for two couples. The location is convenient to Rialto and very close to Campo San Polo. The closest restaurant, Antica Carampane is one of the best seafood places in Venice. We have stayed in about seven apartment is Venice over the years and this is clearly the best.
