Venice in the Autumn

4 of 5
Lovely 3 storey house, in a fantastic central location, albeit no views. The house was furnished in a basic way, but very comfortable. No luxuries and the kitchen facilities were basic. Claudia, who met us on the first day, was very nice and accommodating.

Heavenly views

5 of 5
If you love views (and Venice) this stylish top floor apartment of a legendary palazzo is made to order. With two balconies (living room/master) facing different directions, one over cobbled, siena rooftops and the other over the Grand Canal, we were in bliss. Don't miss the 7:30 pm. evening serenade, when church bells ring out from a number of nearby church towers. Accademia is our favorite area - great history, less touristy and in easy walking distance to Guggenheim and other museums and still only a short jaunt from the St. Mark's crowds. The palazzo is also only a few hundred feet away from a vaporetto stop and it has its own private gate if you decide to splurge on a water taxi. Apartment well-appointed without being stuffy, clean and functional. We didn't want for anything and the VOV staff went overboard to make us feel welcome. We had their phone number on speed dial and it was like having a personal concierge - they were happy to call water taxis for us, recommend restaurants and even make dinner reservations. Although the apartment has a newer, more modern feel than what you often get in a more typical historical palazzo flat, it is charming. And the two decks and 180 degree views give it a magic all its own. Did we mention it even has lovely Grand Canal views from the kitchen and a fully functional laundry room (complete with several pairs of wading boots if there is a sudden bout of aqua alta.) We would recommend this Venice perch to anyone - although small children would have to be watched carefully on the balcony. And if you have mobility problems, be aware that after you get off on the elevator on 3rd floor there is a small flight of stairs to reach the front door short. We give VOV an A plus rating and can't wait to return...
