The palazzetto has a private garden and is located in a charming campiello with a fountain and a lively neighborhood cafe. It is a lovely 10 minute walk from the Accademia Bridge. The San Basilio and Ca'Rezzonico vaporetto stops are 10 minutes away. The house is near the Church of San Nicolo' dei Mendicoli, one of the oldest in Venice, and near the venerable school of Architecture at Universita' Ca' Foscari. This is a vibrant Venetian neighborhood where savvy travelers can immerse themselves in true Venetian life.
The palazzetto is completely restored with careful attention to traditional Venetian materials and architectural details. The third floor entrance features traditional Venetian tiles in Sienna red and cream with beautiful wood floors throughout the apartment. The beamed ceilings in this house make staying here an authentic Venetian experience. Selected pieces of my painting and photography collection are on display. An antique Venetian mirror hangs in the salotto.
Up 10 steps from the second floor, with its own private entrance, the third floor sleeps 2-4 people. It occupies the entire floor of the building providing a light and airy atmosphere with good cross ventilation. The master bedroom has a double bed OR two singles and features beautiful etched windows. It overlooks the private garden and is very quiet. The European style lavender mosaic bathroom has elegant appointments.
The marble kitchen is in one corner of the salotto. This room, with two day beds and a crystal dining table for 6, is spacious and has its own elegant gray bath across the private hall. Out the double windows, you have a view of the Riello and the local life that passes through it. A stay in this truly beautiful space enfolds you in the luxury of Venice.
The house manager will greet you and acquaint you with the neighborhood and residents so you feel at home right away.
Weekly maid service included.
Please see the second floor apartment (sleeps 4-5) of this building. Under airbnb listing: "Life in Venice w/ Private Garden." The apartments are separate but can be rented together to accommodate a group of 9 or more.

I spent two days with my family at Barbara's palazzetto the very first days of 2015. During the reservation, I had some problems with my credit card and Barbara was super-kind and helped me to get through. Natasha was also kind, she was on time for the check-in.
Check-out was also flexible. The house is cozy and the position strategic, away from the crowd but walking distance from the main attractions (15 min).
Bathrooms were tiny for our needs, but everything was clean and in perfect conditions. The steep stairs are not ideal if you are an elderly person.
We stayed for New Year and this apartment was the perfect warm and cosy base to explore Venice. Lovely friendly welcome from Natasha with clear information and we'd received helpful info and accurate directions before we arrived too. Location and accommodation exactly as described and it was well equipped with all we needed. This was definitely one of our favourite airbnb visits and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
The communication with Barbara was great. She gave a really nice sheet summarising parking, walking instruction etc.. to the home. The neighbourhood is a quiet area of Venice which was nice but with easy access to all the major attractions. Best thing was the grocery store was also not far away and the house offers a functional kitchen with many basics provided. The internet provided was also great. I will stay here again and for a longer period as it felt like a home away from home.
The house was perfect! The times for checking-in and checkin-out had been flexible, i spent a wonderful weekend in venice
Una gran estancia en Venecia. La casa se encuentra bien situada, a 20 minutos andando de la plaza de san marco, tiene todo lo necesario, siendo venecia, la relacion calidad precio no es mala.
Por otro lado, la señora Barbara nos prolporcionó por email toda la informacion necesaria para llegar al apartamento desde el aeropuerto, asi como informacion muy util para movernos por venecia, tales como precio de los taxis, locales a donde acudir sitios que ver etc..
En general todo muy bien.

When my husband-to-be first showed me Venice, 39 years ago, I fell in love with the city and knew I would have to live there some day. Now my dream is a reality. Come share it with me.
