LUXURIOUS PALAZZO IN VENICE WITH HOUSEKEEPER/COOK

San Polo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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,
Nov 2013

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 9 celebrating various birthdays in this wonderful palazzo. The apartment is stunning and has a magical atmosphere. We felt priviledged to experience this beautiful place and also felt very much at home. We could not wait to come home from our excursions and have a drink on the terrace. We did not have to go to many historic places, because we were living in one. There is no better way to stay in Venice than here. The owner was very nice and responsive and the housekeeper great. Everything was clean and tastefully maintained. We will definitely be back. Dagmar

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
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.

FEEL LIKE ROYALTY IN VENICE!

  • 5 of 5
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!

MAGICAL WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We've just had a wonderful weekend in Palazzo Albrizzi.
Everything was perfect. The quality of the accomodation, the service and the food outstripped our expectations.
Anna and Hilda, who looked after us during our stay, are real stars and really contributed to make our weekend magical.
I hope we will have the opportunity to visit again soon.

AS FABULOUS AS IT LOOKS IN THE PHOTOS!

  • 5 of 5
I went to this Palazzo for a week in September with 5 family members aged between 40 and 80 and we had a delightful holiday. The rooms are palacial with antique furnishings and beautiful paintings.The cook prepared fantastic meals (average cost 11 euros per person) every evening at our request, as several of our party had food allergies and were on special diets.
We had good weather and sat out on the lovely roof terrace.
The property is very well situated for site-seeing, yet is in a quiet square away from the tourist areas. There are shops nearby to buy wine, cakes and groceries. We could use the kettle and kitchen facilities when required. The owner and his staff were courteous and helpful and ensured that we enjoyed our stay. We lived like real Venetians for a week!

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.
