Perfect location Beautiful property lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. A short walk from the Rialto Bridge and markets but far enough away to not be overrun by the deluge of daily tourists. We overlooked the local Church. We were treated to balcony view of a wedding which was a real treat. On our last night there was a Blues band playing in the square. This was a great end to our holiday.

The apartment itself was huge with plenty of living space, eating area drying area, 4 ample bedrooms and hall areas with seating. The Vaporetto stop was 200 M away. The hosts were charming and very accommodating. We would recommend this property highly to family, friends or strangers looking for the ideal holiday accommodation with a real historic feel. We hope to return one day. You will be hard to please if you are not happy with this property.

If you find yourself in Venice, this is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Venice is a tourist zoo. Every kind of tourist is exhibited. Shoulder to shoulder. But if fortune takes you there, then Palazzo Valerie is where you want to be. It is real, it has survived almost six hundred years, the echoes of its noble past linger in its rooms. It is huge. It is fully equipped. It is in the centre, but quiet. Here, you can become a Venetian. Your hosts greet you and provide essential information on all subjects. Everything was wonderful. Don't hesitate.

Fantastic home in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous place! This home is very spacious and easily accommodated my family of four, with room to spare. The location is perfect and central, but not too busy. We didn't cook dinner, but made use of the kitchen for breakfast and enjoyed their selection of moka coffee makers.

We were greeted and graciously allowed to drop off our luggage before the official check in time. Our hosts provided directions and suggestions for restaurants and even walked us to a nearby coffee shop (which we frequented!)

Just a warning that there are stairs to reach the main floor, so perhaps not the best choice if you can't climb, but for us this was not an issue. Very, very special home!

A beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this spacious apartment. Its central location made it a great base to explore from as it is so close to water transport and major landmarks. There was a heat wave while we were there and we were grateful that we could open the balcony doors wide during the day and that there were fans we could use in the evenings. My mother has good days and bad days in terms of mobility which meant it was important for us to have somewhere charming and interesting (with a bit of local history) to spend our time in. The steps up to the apartment were a bit of a challenge for her, but the handrail helped. We were very warmly welcomed and felt that our hosts would be glad to help us if we had any difficulties. There are few things I'd change: a dryer for the utility room would have been helpful but really that's all I can think of right now! Highly recommended.

Absolutely stunning. Exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5

A real gem in Venice. Full of character. Very spacious. Has all amenities needed. Location a short 3 minute walk from Rialto Bridge. 15 minute walk from San Marco. Supermarket around the corner. Train station Santa Lucia & the car parking garage at Piazzale Roma ( next to train station) is 15 minute walk. Easy to follow signs.

The apartment is in a stunning area. It is next to Church of San Silvestro, which has morning bells. This is part of the wonderful character of the Piazza's of Venice and all the little squares nearby the apartment with Restaurants, churches etc.

The apartment was quiet and away from the crowds of San Marco but 15 minutes walk easily sign posted. The owners were very helpful, kind and there were maps etc in the apartment.

If you are lucky enough to find this apartment with availability, look no further, you've found a true gem.

Great apartment in a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from our trip to Venice staying in this wonderful apartment. The apartment is extremely spacious and although there were seven adults staying we never felt on top of each other or cramped in any way. The owner Piero Flamini has been very helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay, answering questions and queries promptly. There is everything that you want in the apartment during your stay. We did stay in for one evening having had a very long day sightseeing and one more comfortable sofa or couple of extra comfy chairs would have been a bonus. Had no issues with Wi-fi during our stay, all worked well. There is a flight of stairs to the flat which could be deemed to be steep but our oldest member of the party (86) did not find these a problem. The apartment is in a very central location with easy access to everywhere via the water buses. It’s a short walk – about 10 minutes - to St Marks Square from the apartment There are plenty of restaurants nearby with the closest one being by the entrance to the flat. We had a couple of drinks here in the evening but did not eat. Noise from the restaurant was not a problem as most places close rather earlier in Venice then other Italian cities. It is a real experience staying in this apartment and really added to what has been a wonderful visit to a fascinating city. Will be recommending it to our friends and family.
