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.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean & spacious and the living room specially is charming. Kitchen has all the utensils you need, as well as great views. Outside space is generous and the views are simply wonderful. Location of the apartment is central and its easy to get to the main attractions as well as the charming back streets of Venice and to the restaurants, shops etc & the vaparato!

Communication with Orsola was excellent through out ( pre booking - post / meeting us on arrival & arranging departure etc) .

We'd happily stay again. Venice is beautiful & unique and Orsola and the apartment simply complement the city beautifully.

Venice as it´s best!

  • 5 of 5

Two friends, my wife Andrea and me had a wonderful and unfogettable stay from may 4th until may 9th in the apartment of Orsola and Giovanni. The whole building is history pure, an we were in the center of it.The apartment leaved nothing to be desired - a lot of very nice antique furnitures, an impressive libary, very much space an of course the two terraces with great views all over the town. The apartment was very clean and comfortable including an elevator. The situation of the building near the Rialto Market is perfect for a real venetian discoverer. In addition we had a very warm welcome from Orsola including a "Welcome Prosecco". All our special wishes were satisfied by her very friendly. Thank you for all. We´ll come back in a few month.

A summer to remember

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time in this beautiful Palazzo...it felt just so wonderful being in this property, we almost felt as though there was no need to venture out to explore Venice. A nice cold bellini, the breathtaking view over the entire Venice and a good company in this memorable penthouse- a perfect recipe for a lovely summer I would definitely look back fondly.

Beautiful and Interesting

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples and a baby) had a wonderful 4/5 day stay, and part of that wonderfulness is due to having stayed in such a lovely property. This penthouse apartment is in a well located palazzo not far from the Rialto Bridge. It is quiet and beautiful. The entrance hall of of the palazzo is impressive and very Venetian. The apartment itself is clean, spacious, and not only well designed but interestingly designed and furnished stylishly. All the customer services aspects were very good and we would absolutely recommend this property.

Elegant property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this space, and enjoyed the house when we needed to go back and rest from the Venice heat. The views are unbeatable, the apartment was spacious and well equipped (although we did wish the washer was working while we were there). The owner made lots of arrangements for us that helped us enjoy our stay and make the visiting easy and enjoyable. For instance, she arranged for taxis, has someone meet us at the dock and walk us to the property and gave us an orientation once we got there.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I booked this apartment because my 2 daughters had never been to Venice and I thought it would be fun to stay in a palazzo. It was wonderful! The views are magnificent in every direction. The terrace is large -- we ate breakfast and dinner there each day. The layout is better than the pictures indicate -- there is a short flight of stairs up from the front door, but the entire apartment is really on a single floor. Additional stairs lead to a roof deck with 360 degree views, but we mostly used the deck with the furniture on the living level. The ac in the bedrooms was very good for sleeping. The apartment is old (it is, after all, a real palazzo), but well equipped. Orsola arranged a water taxi to pick us up at the airport, which was really worth the cost. The location is perfect -- very central and very close to the Rialto market, a bit away from the tourist crowds, but close to all the sights. It was perfect for what I wanted -- a real Venetian experience.
