About the property

80 sq/mt 4 people apartment in prestigiuos Palazzo on Grand Canal

Luxury, recently renovated and fully furnished 2 bedrooms apartment in 14th century prestigious Palazzo Falier. Facing the Grand Canal, the most fascinating water way of the town, this apartment offers to its guests the best Venetian atmosphere with the comforts of a nicely venetian - style entirely renovated apartment. The two bedrooms, both with double bed and one with an extra sofa- bed, look the nice and silent side canal Rio del Duca; two elegant bathrooms decorated with glass Venetian mosaic, an equipped kitchen with view on a little garden and a charming, finely decorated living room with two windows on the Grand Canal and a wide view which goes from the Accademia Bridge to Palazzo Rezzonico.

The access to the apartment is trough the monumental entrance of Palazzo Falier, one of the most beautiful and well conserved Venetian private palazzo; from there you may arrive in Campo Santo Stefano in 1 minutes, or Palazzo Grassi Museum - Pinault Foundation, Accademia Galleries, Palazzo Franchetti, Palazzo Pisani Music Conservatory of Venice, Santo Stefano Church, the Fenice Opera House ... and of course San Marco Square, all in few minutes walking out of the Palazzo.

The Santo Stefano district is the nicest and most elegant area of Venice; nice restaurants and bars, or the old baccaro and trattoria;, antiques and modern design shops, or the best of Venetian artisans atelier; everything is just around the corner.

Arrive with a water taxi from the Grand Canal on the private jetty of the Palazzo; that's already a great way to start you stay in Venice, or just step down at San Samuele water bus stop, 2 minutes walking. Groceries, a supermarket, pharmacy, book shops, tobacconist, pilates gym, florist ... all you need is at two steps.

The Venice Experience 24/7.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two adult daughters and teen son. The apartment accommodated us perfectly and the location was amazing. The Grand Canal is literally on the other side of the walls. It felt almost like a houseboat that never rocked. When we woke up, we opened the windows, pulled down the screens, watched the boats go by, listened to the water lapping against the walls, and enjoyed the breezes while having our coffee. In the evening, the same thing, with a glass of local Venetian wine instead. This was definitely not a typical hotel situation. The apartment was in itself a fabulous way to enjoy the city of Venice. We would absolutely stay here again.

Perfect Location and Beautiful Building

  • 5 of 5

The setting is perfect; in San Marco on the Grand Canal, but just far enough off the hustle and bustle to really enjoy Venice. The building and the apartment are just as described and very well maintained. The interaction with the owner and the people who met us was very good and we had no issues with anything. We had a 3/4 minute walk to the Accademia Vaporetto or could use the private dock for a water taxi. The setting is beautiful and we would book again when we return to Venice.

We loved Giovanni's place. It is very well appointed with beautiful furnishings, and it was great fun watching all of the activity on the Gran Canal. Check-in was very easy, and we received lots of great tips and recommendations for our stay. Highly recommend!

A great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Palazzo Falier (pron. Paltazo Falyaire) is an ideal place from which to explore Venice. It is situated on the Grand Canal a short walk from Academia Bridge and the vaporetto stop. It has it’s own landing stage so you can arrive in style straight from the airport by Water Taxi if you wish.

The apartment is on the ground floor of the 900 year old Palazzo Falier, which was probably originally the house of some wealthy merchant or nobleman and is itself a fascinating place. The owner communicates in English and seems very pleasant. It has a fantastic view of the Grand Canal from the living room and is pleasantly decorated throughout.

Situated in an area of Venice which is within easy walking distance of St Marks square, but nowhere near as busy. There are shops where you can buy food if you want to cook your own meals, or if you want to eat out there are a number of good restaurants in Campo San Stefano which is only about 5 minutes away.

All in all, this is an ideal place to stay in Venice and is very good value for money.

Great spot accurate photos

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location. Near the academia bridge with great restaurants near by but not the crush of st marks. I enjoyed a glass of wine nightly on the dock and waved at all the vaparetto going by. The dock made life so easy getting to and from the mainland. Yes I plan on staying there again which to me is the ultimate review. Thanks Giovanni for a great stay in Venice.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

My husband, my daughter and her boyfriend stayed in this lovely apartment on the Grand Canal. The apartment itself has been beautifully restored, and the view from the living room is breathtaking! Located close to sidewalk cafes, but relatively removed from the throngs of people one finds touring Venice in the summertime, we found it to be a peaceful oasis on our trip.

One thing to note, the rest of the palazzo is being restored, so there is some construction going on within the building. We were never disturbed by it, but it is clear that there are renovations in progress. With any luck, Giovanni will soon have restored the remainder of the palazzo to the same level of quality and taste as he has restored this apartment!

As a side note, I believe the city of Venice is relatively strict about what happens outside of these historic homes. Don't entertain any ideas about lounging around on the dock--that's not an option!

If anyone is wondering (as I was) ...a private water taxi is the way to arrive at this apartment.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be able to easily see the sights, but to then to escape the crowds and enjoy a cocktail and a sunset in the quiet of an historic building (and it does have an interesting history!).
