LUXURIOUS PALAZZO IN VENICE WITH HOUSEKEEPER/COOK

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday apartment in San Polo - Ca' Albrizzi

A stunning piece of history in the Rialto area.

This palace is an historic building located in San Polo, near the Rialto Bridge. It was built at the end of the seventeenth century by a noble venetian family, and has remained in the family since then. Not far from the Grand Canal, it commands its own small square in the quiet of a lovely neighbourhood.

The Palazzo is actually a very large luxurious apartment which occupies the Piano Nobile (the most significant floor) of the four-story family palazzo.

The most striking feature of this imposing apartment is its enormous Gallery/Grand Hall, which runs almost the full length of the apartment. It has well-regarded museum quality paintings on its walls, very tall windows and a wooden ceiling.

The palazzo is elegant and luminous. There is wonderful antique furniture throughout. Significant artwork, and family heirlooms.

A Noble family house: The palazzo is elegant and luminous. There is wonderful antique furniture throughout, significant artwork, and family heirlooms. Important frescoes in the sitting rooms and dining room by Hayez and Borsato (who worked at La Fenice) have been recently restored. Several rooms have silk-covered walls. The library walls are covered in original mahogany cupboards for books. From the tall windows of the apartment there are views of gardens and rooftops of Venice. These views can also be enjoyed from a large terrace with lovely plantings, tables and chairs. Several rooms have fireplaces. The family regularly uses this apartment, so guests will enjoy the feeling of an exclusive and magnificent Venetian home.

We could not have asked for more perfect accommodations - elegant, spotless, comfortable and steeped in history - just wonderful (this may be the first online rental listing in which the photos are truly accurate). After a long day of touring Venice, it was such a pleasure to return to the peace of the palazzo and San Polo (perfect location, far enough away from the masses, but close to vaporetto stop and the Rialto Bridge, and just steps from a small piazza with some lovely restaurants).

And we absolutely loved Marta, the cook and caretaker. She was there for our every need and her cooking was fabulous. Although it was not our intention, we ended up having dinner at the palazzo for three out of our five nights. We couldn't resist gathering in the beautiful dining room, enjoying Marta's cooking, then hanging out on the lovely terrace.

Giulio, the owner, was friendly, professional and responsive to all our emailed questions prior to the trip. I highly recommend this rental.

Our stay...

  • Review Submitted: 03-Dec-2013

our stay at Palazzo Albrizzi was perfect. We had a wonderful time in Venice - with sunshine and aqua alta...and really enjoyed having the privilege of staying at the wonderful palazzo. But, what made it really perfect, was Martha. The room and bathrooms were immaculate every day, she is a very sweet lady and her cooking was the best in Venice. Thank you and another big thank you to her!

I am just trying to imitate her artichoce lasagne but doubt that it will taste anything like the lasagne she cooked for us! We are already planning to come back in two years.

Best regards,

Dear Giulio,

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the exquisite Palazzo Albrizzi. We could not have asked for more perfect accommodations - elegant, comfortable and steeped in history - just wonderful. After a long day of touring Venice, it was such a pleasure to return to the peace of San Polo, our Campiello Albrizzi, and the lovely palazzo.

And we absolutely loved Marta. She was there for our every need - even bringing ice bags to my mother for her aching knee. And her cooking! Although it was not our intention, we ended up having dinner at the palazzo three nights. We couldn't resist gathering in the beautiful dining room, enjoying Marta's cooking and the wines we brought from Friuli. Which brings me to my next point: please accept my sincerest apologies for the noise we made on the terrace on Friday night. My husband and son had just arrived that day, completing the family, and we celebrated with perhaps a little too much wine, and yes, grappa.

Thank you for making our visit to beautiful Venice even more magical.

All the best,
Eva

Feel like Royalty in Venice!

I brought three friends to Palazzo Albrizzi in April of 2012. This splendid apartment surpassed all our expectations - the great food from the housekeeper (Wonderful saffron arancici!), the regal entry hall and stunning rooms. The patio (huge by Venetian standards) was where we spent as much time as we could, overlooking the small piazza and local children in a small school - we really felt like we lived there!
Close to everything - 5 mins to Rialto bridge, yet quiet and private. This is well worth staying at, and surpisingly good value, considering what you COULD spend in Venice. The owner could perhaps provide better bath/shower curtains. There was a little stress with the housekeeper about the potential for water splashing out of a tub into the apartment and frescoes below, which was difficult to avoid , but this was the ONLY hiccup. Highly recommended
Owner's Response: Michael, thank you very much for your wonderful review and I'm glad you felt like a venetian in Venice, this is what renting a house is all about, isn't it? Whats the point in being in a claustrophobic hotel room with fake antiques furniture when you can have 700 sq. mt. with a home cook all for you? As for the curtains, we'll work on that for sure!

Venice enchantment

Hello Giulio,

It is now three months since we were treated to the enchantment of your home and palace.  When we arrived we expected it to be beautiful.  I did not know it would be so spectacular and that you would be such a welcoming host.  Your graciousness towards us, the constant support and caring of Marta, the chef and the freedom to relax in such an extraordinary palace have lead us to believe this was our best vacation ever.  We travel the world constantly but your generosity and the beauty and ease of your palace have enchanted us forever.

The location of Palazzo Albrizzi is excellent for enjoying Venice.The flat is in the Rialto bridge area. It's 12 minutes walking to get to Piazza S. Marco and Palazzo Ducale. There are two waterbus stop 5 minutes away, but there are so many things you can reach just walking ! The Frari Cathedral and S. Rocco School. The Accademia and, if you are interested in modern and contemporary art the Guggenheim Museum and Palazzo Grassi.

Rialto is a very lively place with its fish and vegetable market every morning, and an endless choice of restaurants and wineries where you can enjoy some delicious and savoury finger food along with a glass of prosecco wine.
