Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in San Polo - Palazzetto Albrizzi

Double bedroom and 1 sofabed in an historic building overlooking a canal.

This lovely apartment is located 5 minutes from the Rialto bridge and the fish and vegetable market. It is part of the Palazzo Albrizzi historical complex and belongs to the Albrizzi family since the 18th century. Its windows overlook the 'Rio de Madoneta'. The flat has been recently restored and the original 18th century stucco work makes it a really cosy place. S.Marco square is only 10 mins walking as well as the most important museums and churches such as St. Marks Square, Accademia, Cà Rezzonico, S.Maria Gloriosa dei Frari (Titian paintings) and Scuola di S.Rocco (Tintoretto). 2 sofabeds in the living room are convenient if you have a child or a extra friend coming to visit. The flat has a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. All linens are provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Giulio,

We really enjoyed our stay in your elegant and historic apartment, and found it so conveniently close to everywhere - an oasis in ther heart of the city! On the Sunday we were on the Rialto bridge to see lots of the rowing boats returning which was a nice way to round off our last day.

Thank you and best regards

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you love Venice you will love this property - centrally located and yet tucked away in a peaceful corner - ancient and beautiful!!

If you dont know Venice very well you will love this property - romantic and close to main sights - and with fantastic directions provided by the owner (so no chance of getting lost)!!

Well equipped, clean and charming apartment with the added bonus of the owner on sight and available to assist with any enquiry.

We spent a perfect 4 days here and returned home with recharged batteries. We would not hesitate to recommend the property to any fellow traveller. We would definately return again and again.

Thank you to G and B for your warm welcome.

A simply amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Giulio's apartment for 5 nights in June and what an absolutely perfect place it is. A very spacious property located 5 minutes from Rialto Bridge but tucked away enough to be off the beaten track for tourists. Steeped in history, all of the rooms are big and comfortable and the only sounds are from gondaleers passing below the windows.

The owner is a perfect gentleman, who told us about the building and surrounding area. We fell in love with the apartment and Venice overall immediately. And we are already planning our return journey!

Elegant, comfortable and uniquely interesting accommodation at Palazetto Albrizzi

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Palazetto Albrizzi, we have found it to be the perfect base from which to explore Venice. It is centrally located, quiet, with easy access to shops including the Rialto market, good restaurants, and only a few minutes from a vaporetto stop. The apartment is part of a fascinating building and has many historical features, such as the beautifully decorated ceilings and walls. It is well equipped and comfortable, clean and well-maintained. The owner, Giulio and his family live in the opposite apartment, which is helpful, and they provide detailed information about local shops and restaurants. My wife Louella and I adore Venice, we hope to return before too long and I can think of nowhere we would rather stay during our visit than Palazetto Albrizzi.

This is the perfect apartment for a stay in Venice. Absolutely charming with the stone staircases and courtyard, the history of the building and the relationship to the owner. The owner is extremely accommodating and available and he is next door. Adding to the charm are the ceilings and the comfy furniture. He has a huge collection of CDs which when playing Vivaldi enhances the romance of the apartment. The apartment is very spacious and clean, I could seriously move in for a month or two. The views of the canal are perfect. The location is perfect and right in the center of local neighborhoods. The location is close to everything. We would stay here again!

A true taste of Venice

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted to find that the apartment was exactly as we imagined. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Guilio, we felt at home. The apartment had everything we needed and the location was ideal for enjoying the main tourist areas whilst still having a lovely quiet base to come back to each day. From the local school children playing at play time in the square to the gondolas passing beneath our windows, we felt very privileged to be allowed to enjoy a true taste of Venice.

wonderful home from home in great Venetian palazzo

  • 5 of 5

Forget about hotels, stay at Giulio's flat, live like a proper Venetian and experience Venice from within. We've spent 9 days at this delightful flat. Giulio is a pleasure to deal with, very kind and friendly, but never intrusive. It is a bonus living in the same building, if ever you'd need help. If you'd like to get the feel of how it is living in Venice, this is the place to be. The location is perfect: a small Venetian square, quiet and serene, with the occasional tourist lost in the countless alleys, yet lively sometimes, with children from the primary school having their break on the square. Rialto Bridge & Market are just 5 minutes away. The vaporetto stop San Silvestro is nearest to the flat, Rialto and Rialto Mercato are very close too, ideal for connections to other vaporetto lines while getting around during your stay (for crossing the Grand Canal from Rialto Mercato to Ca' D'Oro). Palazzo Albrizzi is an ancient five-floor building full of history and character, with an old courtyard, leading to a small canal (Rio de la Madoneta ) where the owner's boat is moored. After 65 steps you'll reach your flat on the 3rd floor, immaculately clean, light and airy, very spacious: a hall full of books, a large lounge, where 3 windows give out onto the canal, a built-in cabinet with CD's (mostly classical music), a large, quiet bedroom (bed 1.90m!) and lots of storage room, a nice kitchen and bathroom. Original 18th century stucco work, lovely ceilings in pastels and antique furniture, windows with wooden shutters. The kitchen takes you back a few decades -it all adds to the charm of the flat- is nice and practical (large fridge, freezer, lots of kitchenware). A decent supply of cooking ingredients gets you started. We loved cooking all our meals here, with fresh ingredients from the Rialto market. I never do any washing whilst on holiday, this time I made an exception. I washed 3 hankies by hand just to be able to hang them out like the locals do, on a rope that you move around, high above the canal, ... quite tricky. I loved to watch the gondoliers passing by, but was even more intrigued by the boats carrying supplies: pipes for heating & electricity, bags of cement, wine barrels, beer pallets, veg and fruit, large tins of tomato purée ...and bringing children to school in the morning! Excellent wireless internet. This flat is amazing value for money, highly recommendable! Mille grazie, Giulio e Benedetta. We hope to come back soon. Hilda & Philip

The flat is located in the Rialto bridge area. It's a 10 minutes walking to get to Piazza S. Marco and Palazzo Ducale. A waterbus stop is 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. Ther's a 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.
