This unique penthouse is without any doubt one of the most fascinating houses in Venice. With its astonishing views from every window, its large marble terrace and unique blend of ancient and contemporary architecture, it sits on top of one of the tallest historical houses of the city, Palazzo Albrizzi.
The 250 sq. mts apartment has 2 double bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, a large kitchen, an open space with dining table for 6 guests and a sitting room. It's furnished with old and modern design furniture and museum quality paintings heirloom of the Albrizzi family, who built the Palazzo in the 17th century and still owns the entire house.
The terrace is 40 sq. mt. and it's accessible directly from the sitting room.
The fifth floor of the palazzo is reachable with an elevator.
The apartment is spectacular: a rooftop of an old palazzo in a quiet, non-touristy part of the city. The owner, Orsala, is a treasure, and was immensely helpful in helping us arrange both tours and travel. The rooftop deck photo does not do the view justice. It might be the nicest view in Venice.
If you are looking for the big hotel on the Grand Canal experience, this is not the place for you. If you want to see and feel the real Venice, you're home.
Everyone should be so lucky to stay in this Palazzo when they visit Venice. I'm not sure the Venetians even understand how wonderful it is to come home to the 1300s. My family of 4 absolutely loved the ambiance and convenience of staying in this lovely home. Everything you need is available in the apartment and if something goes wrong the housekeeper or the owner will be there to help you out. My only regret is we didnt stay longer, my only hope is that they will still be renting this apartment when I am fortunate enough to visit Venice and again. Its in a very central location but a quiet square.
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 !!
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.
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.
The apartment is wonderful in an old palazzo but has all new things that make life easieras TV,
Sitting at the terrace and enjoying the view and a drink before strolling down the streets to little hidden restaurants, shops and all the important places...
Thanks to Orsola for all the help and great tips she gave
I ' ll be back for sure
