Experiement a true home in Venise.
This is not a hotel, nor a bed&breakfast. It is just a normal home that is often left over unoccupied , as I'm working in Paris.
Ideal for large groups of up to 9 people.
The apartment is ideally located close the the Rialto bridge.This very central location is close to many vaporretto (water bus) stops and you can walk almost to anywhere.
The surface is quite big (3200 ft² / 300m²) all on the same floor.
The apartment is composed of :
- A hall
- A living room
- A dinning room
- For bathrooms
- Five bedrooms
- The XVIII century room, double bed, view over the canal, private bathroom
- The Empire room, double bed, view over the canal, private bathroom
- The Chinese room, double bed, view over the court, very calm, private bathroom
- The blue room (much smaller room), two single bed, shared bathroom with the Turkish room
- The Turkish room (tiny room), one single bed, shared bathroom with the Blue room
- A fully equipped kitchen
- A laundry
The XVIIIème and Empire bathroom are brand new (Feb. 2014). I need to upload some pics (I know,....I'm late)
By the way, do not search for a TV, we don't have one, and we don't want to ! But I have put in place a wireless network for myself, and you can use it as much as you want.
Important to know, our upper neighbors do not like the noise. In particular at evening time. I rely on you to remain quiet and conscious of our upper neighbors.
Please be aware that the rooms are usually ready by 5PM (we need time to clean), but you can arrive earlier, rest in the living room, and leave your luggage home.
If you have more questions, the best way is to get in touch.
Once again, this isn't a hotel or a professional bed & breakfast. You're about to share the true Venetian life !
Once booking is done, we'll give you all the details about access
Interaction with Guests
Most of the time, I will not be home when you come.
If we're not in Venice at the time of your stay, a friend will welcome you, deliver the keys and answer any of your question. We'll give you all the details after the booking.
Our home is right in the center. So one's can walk form there almost to anywhere else in Venise.
Rialto bridge is a key point in Venise, as it is the mandatory way to go from one bank to the other.
Rialto is one of the main "station" for water buses. From this station, you can go in many directions.
Of course, there is no parking for cars in venise.
You can benefit from all the common areas such as the living room or the kitchen. What a nice time to lay in the living room, drinking a glass of prosecco !
As it is a private apartment, everything is furnished as home. Food, drinks, coffee...are available, and we rely on host to replace whatever you may have used.
Antonio met us and introduced us to the apartment in a very precise and professional way.
We had a lovely stay at this beautiful home in Venice. We were welcomed warmly by Tony who showed us to the house, got us acquainted with everything and made us feel very comfortable. The house is situated in a great area, very convenient to the Rialto and an easy jumping off point for good walks and vapoertti rides around the city. The home itself was well stocked with ample numbers of towels, linens, cups, plates, glasses etc...as well as a pantry with various food items and other necessities like toilet paper. It was a nice touch to have these things all readily available.
Like other reviews have said, it is an older house which means it has quirks. The floors are loud and creaky, water pressure is hit or miss but the beds are big and comfortable and there is lots of space to spread out and enjoy.
Because the house is situated right on a canal, it can be noisy in the mornings when various boats are out and about. That said, the Chinese bedroom and the smaller (single bed) bedrooms in the back look onto the courtyard and are very quiet and dark. We were traveling with children and had them in these rooms and it was perfect.
The palazzo lived up to all the pictures: it was in an idyllic, central part of Venice and was full of authentic charm.
We were met by Antonio, who was very efficient and friendly, taken to the apartment and shown the ins and outs of it (all pretty straightforward).
We had an incredible time in Venice, and even went canoeing down the canals (canoe place on same courtyard as palazzo, would really recommend).
Would recommend highly, the place is wonderful and everyone very responsive.
The house is very good located. It is very big and very originial venezian decoration! and great view to the canal!!!
The only thing I would say is that it is an old house. With this I mean, long time to have hot water, old bathrooms, very noise floor.
Wir waren eine Gruppe von 8 Architekten auf einer 3-Tages-Reise zur Architektur-Biennale. Antonio hat uns bei unserer Ankunft in Venedig in Empfang genommen, uns zur Unterkunft geführt und ausführlich und freundlich alles Wissenswerte zur Wohnung erklärt. Wir waren sofort von der zentralen Lage und dem besonderen Flair der Wohnung fasziniert. Die Zimmer waren sehr geräumig, sauber und stilvoll, mit Liebe zum Detail, eingerichtet. Als sehr komfortabel haben wir empfunden, dass uns insgesamt 4 Bäder zur Verfügung standen. Ein absolutes Highlight der Wohnung war der Speisesaal. Wir haben bereits mehrere Venedig-Aufenthalte hinter uns, aber noch nie haben wir so authentisch, zentral und großzügig gewohnt, wie in dieser Wohnung.
Vielen Dank für 3 wunderschöne Tage!
Wir werden diesen Kurzurlaub in bester Erinnerung behalten!
Wir haben uns sehr wohl in der Unterkunft gefühlt.
We had a wonderful stay in Edouard's palazzo and it was every bit as spectacular as it looked in the photos. The palazzo itself is off a court yard about a 3 minute walk from the Rialto bridge (vaparetto stop and also boat transfer to the airport) roughly behind the Coin department store. It's up two fairly long flights of stairs on the second floor, but having read previous reviews there weren’t as many stairs as we had anticipated.
As described and shown in the pictures, there are three huge double rooms each with their own bathrooms and then also a twin room (beds at either end of the room and can be separated by a curtain in the middle) and a single room, these last two shared a bathroom. The flat was beautifully decorated and the beds were comfortable.
We were a group of 9 friends and the kitchen had everything that we needed to cater for large numbers - big saucepans, plenty of cutlery, glasses etc. And there is plenty of space in the dining room which could have seated 16 easily.
A couple of weeks before we arrived Antonio emailed to check what time we would arrive in Venice and included useful information on getting from the airport/mainland. We agreed to meet him near the Rialto bridge and from there the palazzo was 3/4mins walk away. Antonio was fantastic and showed us around the apartment as well as letting us know the ins and outs of rubbish collection etc (there are also written instructions on this and other information that people may require in the palazzo). There were 5 sets of keys which was very useful being a group of friends.
From where the palazzo was, we were able to walk to most places easily, being roughly a 10min walk from St Mark's Square, 5mins from the Rialto market, 5mins from a fairly large supermarket and 1min from a bakery.
Thank you for letting us stay, we couldnt imagine a more wonderful setting for our trip to Venice and truely felt that we were being welcomed in to Edouard's home. We very much hope to have the opportunity to return!
We had a fabulous trip to Venice and Edouard's huge palazzo apartment was the most wonderful place to stay. It really is as beautiful as the pictures suggest and the location near the Rialto Bridge is perfect. Communication with Edouard and Antonio was faultless both before and during our stay and we felt very welcome. Very highly recommended and it would be wonderful to be able to return before too long. Thank you so much.

Nous habitons entre Venise et Paris. Venise offre toujours des séjours enchanteurs qui nous permettent une vrais pause. Nous avons décoré notre appartement dans un gout a cheval entre le style baroque vénitien et notre amour du classicisme à la Française. Peut être aurons nous l'occasion de nous croiser à Venise, mais souvent, l'appartement n'est que pour vous.
Vous y trouverez tout ce qu'il vous faut, y compris de quoi dresser une table pour 32 couverts. Nous apprécions particulièrement de nous poser sur la terrasse marocaine qui donne sur le canal. L'endroit y est toujours ensoleillé, et c'est un vrai bonheur que de s'y accorder un moment de détente.
