We agree wholeheartedly with all the praise for the Contessa da Schio and the Palazzetto da Schio. We have just completed a wonderful visit there, and without question, it opened up a new Venice for us, one in a picturesque and quiet residential quarter that nonetheless is conveniently located to just about everything. The Contessa is extraordinary, a warm hostess who makes one feel at home in the lovely palazzetto that has been her own home since childhood (one of the apartments used to be her nursery). The apartments themselves (she took us on a tour through all of them) are spacious and comfortable, decorated with family antiques and supplied with what you need exactly where and when you need it. Lots and lots of storage space, appropriate kitchen equipment and utensils (not just left-overs), and hooks in just the right places. She obviously has given a lot of thought to what her guests might need or want, and this shows--in the apartments themselves, and in her graciousness and good humor. What more can we say, except that we plan to return as soon as possible!
