PALAZZETTO DA SCHIO

Dorsoduro House Rental Photos and Description

Four Delightfull Apartments, Different Sizes And Views

Palazzetto da Schio offers four apartments which look out over the canal in front of the house or over the garden and rooftops at the back. The bedrooms have queen size beds or twin beds. Each apartment is furnished with family antiques - the real thing! - but equipment is modern and efficient. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The kitchens are well equipped for people who like to shop at the market and do their own cooking.

All the rooms are rather large, by venetian standards, and the living-rooms are comfortable for being together.

The location of the house, near the Guggenheim collection and the Basilica della Salute is close to the very heart of Venice but it is away from the noisy crowds of the daily tourists.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • smoking allowed

I grew up in this house. We lived in it as one home. I left Venice to work in Milan and came back in 1986. With the help of my husband, we restored it and divided it into five apartments, one for ourselves and the others to be offered to guests who love Venice. Since then, i have met many people from all over the world and I realize that i love my job because these guests are so interesting and - most of them - are so nice: they give me glimpses into places, traditions, habits that make my world larger and closer at the same time.

ANNA DA SCHIO purchased this house in 1700

This house has been in my family for many generations and i have lived in it most of my life so it is understandable that i love it. You might say it has got under my skin. Trying to be objective, though, i must say i am lucky in owning a house which has a wide canal on the front and a garden on the back. This gives it a lot of light, and nice views, front and back, specially compared to many venetian houses which are located in the Calli and never have natural light. The location is also excellent, close to st.Mark's square but on the other side of the grand canal which makes it very quiet. In fact this area is one of the most requested by people who are looking for a house to buy.

The most important benefit for my guests is that i live in this same house and am on call practically all the time for help and advice. This is not the case for the great majority of rentals in Venice.

I would never change this house with any other in Venice because of the things i mentioned above and because of the unique mix of venetian styles that make it different from other places:

The top floor is 'rustic Venice' with exposed rough beams still bearing the marks of the 16th century woodcutters, but the main and the mezzanine floors have an elegant 18th century atmosphere with decorated ceilings and soft colours. On the ground floor I have restored the terrazzo which is so delicate but so much nicer than the tiling that many Venetians adopt for merely practical reasons.

A Unique Venetian Experience

We had a most enjoyable 10 night stay in Apartment 2 in the Palazzetto da Schio from 23 March to 2 April 2014. Contessa Anna gave us excellent directions for finding the Palazzetto which were easy to follow. The apartment is on the top floor, which is about 45 steps from street level, and overlooks a lovely garden which is available for use by guests. We were the first guests to use the Contessa’s luggage winch, which worked well. The Contessa greeted us warmly on arrival and gave us a very thorough briefing on the apartment. She also gave us a detailed map with local restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarkets and sights marked on it, which proved very handy.

The apartment itself is lovely and light and very tastefully decorated, and in early spring it was great to have the afternoon sun shining into the three rooms. Having the large kitchen enabled us to take advantage of the offerings at the well stocked local Billa supermarket, the various fruit and vegetable markets and the Rialto fish market. Having a washing machine and huge clothes drying rack was also a great plus. The bed was extremely comfortable and the apartment was very quiet. The lounge room has two very comfortable chairs for reading and an equally comfortable sofa. There’s also a comprehensive library with books in a range of languages and the cleaner comes in every few days.

We enjoyed the Dorsoduro area very much. It has more than its fair share of interesting sights, and in our view is a much nicer place to be than the crowded San Marco area. Even so, it’s only an interesting 15 minute walk to the Piazza San Marco.

Prospective guests should note that the apartment is just that, and you need to provide all of your own supplies, such as salt and pepper, cooking oil, gladwrap, etc. and only initial supplies of toilet paper, washing powder and dishwashing powder were provided. For this reason it may not suit short stay guests.

The only problem we encountered was with the intermittent internet connection, seemingly a common problem in Venice. Asking the Contessa to reboot the router usually improved things, at least temporarily.

Overall Palazzetto da Schio is a wonderful place to stay, and we’d happily come back for a longer visit, particularly if we could be guaranteed the fabulous weather we enjoyed during our stay.
