Superb location in Dorsoduro. Very quiet, romantic and charming. The Contessa is a very nice woman, and extremely knowledgeable as she grew up in this very house (although it sounds like it was much less comfortable when she was a child). We had apt. no. 5, which was spacious. Only quibbles: the aparment is dark, which is not a problem because it stays cooler in warm weather, but there is no good reading light; and the shower enclosure is a curtain loop over the tub, and is a very tight space--the curtain inevitably sticks to one's skin. I found it easier to just kneel in the tub and use the handheld shower head, although it isn't very comfortable if you are six feet tall. The bed was a bit hard, but found the same throughout Italy. Highly recommended.

I am very grateful to my guests who give me good marks and I hope I shall go on deserving them, but I'm sorry when I hear that something was missing to their comfort which could easily be set right.

Difficult to change the mattresses (most people complain of back-ache if they are soft) but very easy to provide a good reading lamp.

One of the advantages of living in the same house as my guests is that they can knock on my door any time, or leave a note if I'm out, and we can try and fix whatever is wrong. Even the problem of the shower curtain can be improved with a little technique that a very ingenious guest taught me.

I cannot add much to the existing reviews other than our gratitude to Anna for making our first visit to Venice so memorable. The apartment is perfect, centrally located, as quiet as we had hoped for, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Anna was a pleasure to work with, from our very first email exchanges to the excellent and thorough introduction we received on arrival. Everything was handled is a very professional manner. The location is ideal-away from the mayhem and crowds of other parts of town, with a real neighborhood feel, and still only a five-minute walk from the vaporetto. We look forward to many return visits!

This was a find. There were 6 of us staying at 2 apartments in this well located, quiet and well appointed Palazzetto. The Contessa da Schio was a delightful and informative hostess. We were on the third floor and with carry on luggage, the steps were easily mounted. Might be harder for heavier bags but there are 2nd floor apartments as well. We easily found restaurants nearby and walked or took the vaparetto (water taxi) to everywhere we wanted to go. We would recommend the palazzetto for anyone who wants a quiet home in Venice and who does not need the trappings (room service, exercise room, etc) of a big hotel.

We stayed in apartment no. 4 for 3 nights. The apartment overlooked the canal and was very comfortable and well equipped. We thought the location was fantastic away from the crowds of San Marco but easy to get around. Contessa Anna was very helpful in providing information about the area - restaurants and shopping locally.

The apartment No. 3 in Contessa Anna da Schio’s Palazzetto has been ideal for two couples: To each of the two great bedrooms belongs a small bathroom – great for us - the small kitchen is equipped with everything you might want, even a dishwasher and a washing machine are available as well as a trolley for shopping in the Billa super market and rubber boots for “acqua alta” which, however, we did not need. From the wonderful great living/dining room we had a great look over the nice canal and Venetian roofs over which to our great surprise we sometimes saw a huge cruise liner!

The Contessa explained everything in the apartment and gave us a lot of most welcome information (Venice card, super market, surrounding …) She offered to contact her at any time for any further information required. Just a little something but most welcome: A bottle of mineral water was available upon our arrival and we were given a lovely piece of self-made soap. We really appreciated being taken care of by such an amiable Venetian Contessa. And we felt a little bit ourselves as “Venetians” when we unlocked the front door of “our” Palazzetto!

Since we are very fond of old historical buildings, we have been absolutely delighted with the Palazzetto of the 16th century and the antique furniture. During the last years, the Contessa has restored the old family property and divided it into 5 apartments, always under the strict control of the Monument Authority. She herself lives in apartment No. 1 which can be rented in summer for not less than a month, the other apartments are available for short rents. A lovely little garden belongs to the Palazzetto, open to all guests. Best you have a look at the homepage to get an impression of the wonderful apartments: www.palazettodaschio.it.

A further big advantage is the location which could not have been better: Picturesquely situated on a little canal in the quarter Dorsoduro, we reached the St. Mark’s square in less than 10 minutes by traghetto (gondola ferry) but were far away from tourist hustle and bustle. Dorsoduro is mainly a dwelling zone, very attractive with many churches, museums, places and shops – the ideal place for a stay in Venice!

The Contessa speaks several languages but not German, communication with us was in English language.

We wish to thank the Contessa for a wonderful stay and highly recommend her wonderful Palazzetto!

When I started opening my house to visitors there were very few guests from North of the Alps. The German speaking people seemed to avoid Venice though they flocked down to the sea and to the lake of Garda. Many of them thought that the Venetians were a bit difficult to deal with. Venetians, on their part, also felt a bit wary of the Northern visitors perhaps for old historical reasons. All that is now changed: Germans, Austrians and Swiss have found their way to the lagoon and a feeling of trust and friendship has taken the place of the old grudges: one step forward towards a better Europe! I wish I knew a bit of German to thank my guests properly but, alas, the only thing I can say is "Danke!
