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 still owned and inhabited by the da Schio family, who have made it available to visitors. It is located near the Basilica della Salute just one vaporetto stop from Piazza San Marco.
This apartment on the mezzanine floor is perfect for those who do not want to do many stairs and overlooks the private internal garden. It consists of a double bedroom, a full bathroom, a living room and a kitchen. In the living room there is a large round dining table and an elevated alcove with two extra beds. It is almost entirely decorated with antique fabrics from the family collection and there are original Venetian floors. 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.
The apartment is self catering.

Lovely stay at Palazzetto de Schio
The property is ideally situated on a canal in the quieter Dorsoduro section of the city, close to two vaporetto stops, making it very convenient to access all of the city's sites while providing an oasis of calm, away from the bustling crowds of tourists. Here you have an opportunity to experience "real life" in Venice! The owners are charming and extremely helpful in answering any questions you may have and providing suggestions for restaurants, etc. The apartment was very spacious, clean, comfortable and well-furnished, with everything one could possibly need.......right down to rubber boots in case of "high-water", which, not surprisingly, can occur in Venice. (Happily, we were denied this particular experience.) Palazzetto de Schio was an excellent choice for our visit!
Ihr Palazetto in Venedig
Ein kleiner Palazzo, zwischen Giudecca und Canale Grande am Riu della Fornace gelegen. Die Appartements sind mit Antiquitäten ausgestattet, es gibt einen kleinen Garten, in dem die Contessa (die Eigentümerin des Palazetto, die im Haus wohnt) sich um die Magnolien kümmert.
Alles ist sauber und gepflegt, die Wirtin nett und zugewandt, spricht Englisch.
Wir haben im Palazetto schon einmal für zwei Monate vor ca. 10 Jahren gelebt, jetzt für einen Monat. Wir wären nicht wieder gekommen, wenn es uns beim ersten Mal nicht gut gegangen wäre. Diesmal wieder. Empfehlenswert.
A Taste of Real Venice
Palazzetto da Schio speaks of an old world charm that is a rare find in today's modern and often frenetic world. It's location is perfect for those seeking peace, quiet and a sense of the real Venice. It is within a short walk to the Zattere, several vaporetto stops , Salute and the Accademia. Our apartment was spacious, well appointed and exceptionally clean with frequent maid service. Since I love to cook we chose apartment 2 with the larger kitchen. This proved to be ideal with every utensil and piece of kitchen equipment I needed and we loved the original 300 year old stone sink.
Contessa da Schio and her daughter Elisabetta Steiner are gracious, attentive and have thought of every detail. Contact before our trip to Italy was always prompt and efficient. They were on hand upon our arrival and immediately made us feel welcome and at home. Indeed Palazzetto da Schio provides an exceptional opportunity to not just visit Venice but to truly live Venice.
I could provide ongoing accolades and examples of what makes Palazzetto da Schio our ongoing first choice in Venice . But perhaps my final response to the Contessa's question ,"What can we do to improve ?" should best sum it up , "Don't change a thing. This has been perfect."
Live Like a Venetian!
I am almost reluctant to post a review about Palazetto da Schio in the Dorsoduro section of Venice for fear my praise of this lovely spot will mean there won’t be room when next I try to book into this “find!” There are four different and classically-furnished apartments to rent in this small palace on a quiet canal adjacent to the Zattere--if you know Venice at all--that has been in the da Schio family for many years. Two flats overlook the small canal behind the magnificent Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, and two face the back. ALL are wonderfully quiet at night, which was a blessing, given the uproar of the Carnival season near the Piazza S. Marco while we were visiting. We had chosen Apartment #5 (only one flight up, which can be important if stairs are a problem; two of the flats require going up 2 sets of stairs), with a large master bedroom with a Queen-size bed, and a 3-foot high platform above the living room featuring twin beds—sleeping four in total, although there were only two of us on this visit. Our bathroom had an old-fashioned “claw and ball” type tub with a hand shower; a lighted, magnified mirror over the sink; and lovely terrazzo tile on the floors throughout the flat. Our kitchen turned out to be a Godsend with its ample refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and the usual glassware, flatware, knives, dishes, appliances, etc., as this was a working trip and often we were too tired to go back out for an evening meal, so just scrambled some eggs and made toast a few of the 8 nights we were in residence. We were there in February with chilly evenings (often in the 30’s) and brisk days (no acqua alta this trip) and enjoyed being toasty warm, with plenty of duvets on the bed and sufficient heat. Our wonderful hostess cautioned us to turn off the lights and turn down the heat whenever we left our flat as utilities are charged at the end of one’s stay, depending on a very careful reading of the meters. In our case, we earned an “A+” and paid about $40 extra for the heat, light, and hot water we consumed during our week long stay. There are so many things we loved about residing in a true “neighborhood,” but to name a few: a local mobile phone is assigned each flat so you can make local voice calls in or out of the apartment at a fraction of the cost than if you used your US phone. The flat had wifi that worked well in the living room, which was vital for our purposes; and we were less than five minutes from the Salute vaporetto st
A week away in Venice
Palazzetto da Schio was highly recommended to us by friends so we never really looked elsewhere. The flat was wonderfully located, out of the way in a quiet residential neighbourhood but still very close to all the sights as well as the grocery store and markets. There were two vaporetto stops to choose from and the Alilaguna to the airport stopped around the corner. The flat was clean and spacious for two people, everything was lovely and comfortable. There were even boots in the closet in case of an acgua alta! The owner was terribly nice, very helpful and always available to answer our questions.
We would definitely recommend the Palazzetto da Schio to friends and family.
Reviews like this one make me feel that my work is worthwhile! Thank you!
PALAZZETTO da SCHIO
We stayed in Palazzetto da Schio apartment from September 15 till September 22, 2014.
Renting this apartment was one of the best decisions we ever made. The house is beautiful, easy to reach from any point of arrival. It is located in quiet aria and in the same time it is close to main point of attraction of Venice.
The apartment is clean and comfortable; and there is the most important thing for independent travelers the wonderful host of this apartment- Anna da Schio. She is very friendly, always available to give advice and to help, so we felt save and taking care of.
