Palazzetto da Schio is a Venetian private house dating back to the 16th century.
Palazzetto da Schio is a Venetian private house dating back to the 16th century, which overlooks a wide and bright canal in one of the best and most peaceful Venetian areas. It is located near the Basilica della Salute just one vaporetto stop from Piazza San Marco.
This third floor apartment is very bright and overlooks the private internal garden and has a view over the rooftops. It consists of a double bedroom, a full bathroom, a living room and a large kitchen. In the living room there is a sofa bed. The sofa bed mattress is shorter than the standard ones, so it is suitable for a child or not very tall people. The furniture is from the 18th and 19th centuries, there are exposed beams and original Venetian floors. We have an electric winch to carry the suitcases in the apartment without effort, which unfortunately can not be used if it rains. The apartment is furnished with family antiques. For this reason we only welcome people who know how to take care of them and appreciate them.
In addition to the apartment there is a lovely garden at your disposal, with a table and chairs with cushions, where you can smoke, sip an aperitif and even there are those who like to eat.
I live in the same house and are always available to my guests for any need or demand, whether it concerns the apartment or the city of Venice.
The price of the stay includes the final cleaning. For check in after 20.00 will be charged 50 euros. The city of Venice requires the payment of the tourist tax, as in many other Italian cities. If you want more information about it, contact me.

At home in Venice
Staying at one of the beautiful and spacious appartments of the Palazzetto da Schio makes you feel special, not like just one of the sometimes too many tourists, more like a real, traditional - if only temporary - Venetian citizen.
The Palazzo da Schio is perfectly situated in Dorsoduro, near the Academia bridge and within a few minutes walking distance of several vaporetto-stops: Zattere (a.o. Linea Blu direct line to Marco Polo Airport), Santo Spirito and Salute (a.o. vaporetto #1 along the Canal Grande).
The appartment is furnished with beautiful, antique furniture and as clean as can be, fully equipped. Though eating out is tempting, coock diner at home is an attractive option.
The appartments of Palazzetto da Schio nowadays are managed by Elizabeth Steiner da Schio, but in this case her mother, the Comtessa Anna da Schio, acted as our host. We felt very welcome and were given all kinds of good advise and usefull tips. We hope to return sometime soon!
This apartment building is on a lovely little canal very close to the Salute vaporetto stop and is very close to the Giudecca canal in a residential neighborhood of Dorsoduro. Apt.#5 is on the 2nd floor and overlooks a garden area. The owner of this building was very thorough on explaining how everything works and helping us with local advice. The apartment was very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed (except for groceries). Convenient location with vaporeto stops nearby.
great location, beautiful apartment
I don't think you could find a better place to stay in Venice than this spacious, beautifully furnished apartment, located in Dorsoduro, just a five minute walk to Santa Maria del Salute church and not much further to the Academia Bridge, and yet -- because it is a residential area -- as quiet as the countryside at night. The kitchen (the palazetto's original) is really large and completely equipped for any culinary level, and looks out over the rooftops of Venice. The Contessa and her daughter were extremely helpful in advising us about everything from how to get our vaporetto passes to local restaurants to try. If we are fortunate enough to visit this magical city again, we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.
Your wonderful home in Venice!
We were so happy with Palazetto Da Schio! The apartment was perfect, I really liked that the kitchen and bath could be closed off from the living/sleeping area. As we were travelling with teens, having privacy for our morning coffee without waking the kids was great! We enjoyed the garden, ping-pong table and the location immensely. We are already looking forward to a return visit next year. Our hostess was lovely, we learned so much from her about the house and Venice. Thanks for an unforgettable stay!
It has been so nice to meet you and have you here. It would be wonderful to see you again next year, the ping pong table will be waiting for you and the boat ready for a new trip!!
I don't think we could've picked a better location if we tried. It was so close yet far enough from the chaos of the tourists to make it a beautiful and relaxing trip. I would give anything to live there.
The Vaparetto stops were so close and the water taxi dropped us off right at the front door.
The sounds of the lagoon and the breeze with the windows open at night were like a dream.
The Countess was very helpful with any questions we had and lives in the building do it is easy to reach her at all times.
I cannot say again how lovely it was.
We will defiantly stay there again.
Thank you for this wonderful review. What can I say? Come back soon, I'm waiting for you!
We Love Palazetto da Schio!!
My husband and I have been staying in Venice at Palazetto da Schio since 1994 and highly recommend it! Mrs. Anna da Schio, the owner, resides in the building and happily takes care of one's needs. The apartments are Old World Venice, very charming, and in a wonderful location -- out of the main tourist trap but very close to important museums and great restaurants. We have consistently found our experience at Palazetto da Schio to be happy, warm and memorable... And so we continue to return.
Palazzetto da Schio is located in Dorsoduro, in the historic center of Venice, in an elegant and quiet area between the Basilica della Salute and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, served by many public transport and well connected to the airport, the station and Piazzale Roma.
