About the Property
Rent a private apartment in a real XVIth century Venetian home
Palazzetto da Schio offers four apartments, with one or two bedrooms, which look out over the canal in front of the house or over the garden and rooftops at the back. This listing refers to the small apartments, you can find the large ones on the listing # 641344. The one bedroom apartments are # 2 and 5. They are similar and have the same rates but are on different floors.
The bedrooms have queen size 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.
Apartment 2 - Top floor over the garden (Sleeps 2 - Max. 3)
The afternoon light floods this apartment because it faces due West and is higher than most of the houses around it. All the windows look out over the garden and the rooftops of Venice. It is very quiet at all times, and the rough beams combined with the Venetian terrazzo floor make it particularly agreeable. It has one bedroom, with queen size bed, bathroom, sitting-room, and large kitchen with a dining-area. In the sitting room a graceful, XIXth century bed-sofa can accommodate an extra guest. The furniture is mostly XVIIIth and XIXth century.
There is an electric hoist that takes up the luggage to the top floor.
Apartment 5 - Mezzanine floor over the garden (Sleeps 2 - Max 4)
This apartment faces West and all the rooms have a close-up view of the garden.
It has one bedroom, with queen size bed, bathroom, living-room and kitchen. It also has an alcove, elevated from the floor, with twin beds for two extra guests.
It is particularly suitable for guests who do not want to climb stairs.
It is almost entirely decorated with antique fabrics from the family collection.
Each apartment is equipped with satellite TV and DVD player.
Each apartment has independent heating and air-conditioning.
All the kitchens are equipped with 4 gas fires, electric oven, microwave oven, toaster, mixer, juicer and complete set of kitchenware and tableware.
There are also a fridge and freezer, a washer/dryer machine.
A baby bed and equipment for toddlers is available on request but, because antique furniture is delicate children should be well supervised for their own safety and also for the safety of the furnishings.

Car: Not Necessary
Palazzetto da Schio overlooks Rio della Fornace, between the Guggenheim Collection and the Basilica della Salute, only one vaporetto stop away from St. Mark's Square. It is therefore very quiet, away from the noisy crowds, and, at the same time, close to the heart of Venice.
Year Purchased: 1700
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Dorsoduro, Venezia, Italy:
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 Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
