About this listing
B&B VENEZIA - Corte Vecchia
A neighbour told us that once among the Venetian nobles reigned an unwritten rule of mutual aid whereby, if a woman was left widowed and without substance, she was granted a residence where she could stay with her children and servants, keeping the family lifestyle unchanged.
It seems that our house was among those used for this purpose. We do not know if this is true, but we like to think that there is a story to tell;-)
Concerning us ... we are both architects and our story began when we decided to look for a bigger place to live, determined to remain in Venice, because we simply love its unique atmosphere and lifestyle, and know that these are things we would not find anywhere else.
And so our search began! At one point we found the place of our dreams but it was way too big for us. We kept searching.
But no matter what property we viewed, we kept thinking about that special, quiet, but way too big place, the one that was central but off the beaten track, and yet just around the corner of places like the Accademia, the Guggenheim Museum, the Pinault Gallery, the Salute and livelier places like Campo Santa Margherita.
In the end we came up with an unexpected solution: we could open a B&B. And that's how the 'way too big place' of our dreams was realised.
So if you are looking for a place where you'll be able to experience the authentic side of Venice, then we'll be delighted to welcome you in our home and share some of our life in Venice with you.
As in all true B & B, we owners live in the building, but we designed the space in order to ensure total privacy and comfort both for our guests and for us.
The three bedrooms (two doubles and one single) are equipped with private bathroom, heating, air conditioning, electric kettle, espresso machine, free WiFi, hair drier.
The rich breakfast served in your room is included in the price.
Small pets allowed with prior notice.
About the room CORTE VECCHIA VERDE
The room, distinguished by the green tones, overlooks Rio Tera San Vio through the main façade of the house. The term "Rio Tera," which literally translated from Venetian means "buried canal", entered in the local toponymy to indicate a road built on the site of one of the many canals of Venice, which in this case was a branch of the San Vio canal.
This spacious room will allow you to choose two single beds or one double bed and, if necessary, to add a free cot. Two chairs and a table create a cosy corner to have your breakfast, read or just relax. The bathroom is private and can be accessed from outside the room (it is not en suite).
Please note that the price does not include the new City Tourism Tax, established by the City of Venice from 24 August 2011. For B&Bs the Tax is Euro 3,00 or 2,40 per day per person, according to the season. You'll pay the tax on arrival.

In the house also lives a little dog called Pia.
Your pets are welcome with prior notice.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 1 night.
Wow, what an experience. Visiting during Redentore was absolutely perfect. We were able to enjoy Venice in a way that we could not have experienced elsewhere. All the guest of the BnB gathered out on the street and ate a feast while we waited for the fireworks. The room is sparkling, the AC is wonderful, the shower is modern and spacious compared to most, and the breakfast is delicious. Absolutely wonderful; wouldn't stay anywhere else.
This was a great place to stay during our time in Venice! Very easy to access from train station and just a step outside the busyness of San Marco. The room was great and very clean. It was in a quiet and safe area. Our host was very nice and helpful. She sent great detailed maps and instructions of how to arrive her to place before we came. I definitely recommend this place.
Wir hatten eine ausgesprochen tolle Zeit bei Antonella und Mauro.
Das Zimmer ist sehr schön eingerichtet und bietet alles, was man für einen Kurztrip nach Venedig braucht. Gleiches gilt für das komplett renovierte und toll hergerichtete Badezimmer.
Neben dem mit Liebe angebotenen Frühstück ist die Lage der Wohnung perfekt. Direkt in Dorsoduro, aber da in einer Sackgasse gelegen, sehr sehr ruhig. Wir würden sofort wieder hin. Absolute Empfehlung.
The location was perfect. Quiet, even though so close to the center of Venice. The room was fantastic and even better than it looks in the pictures. The flat was warm and cosy and felt like home. Antonella was great and recommended some excellent restaurants, all of which we visited. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend to all of our friends.
Antonella and Mauro are perfect hosts. Great communication and directions to their beautiful property.
Located in a lovely quiet area, yet only a short walk to all that Venice has to offer, the B and B is perfectly situated.
With as many facilities as required for a short stay, such as tea and coffee facilities and a communal lounge area, it really is a home from home...with the added benefit of somebody else preparing breakfast..!
I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here...and will definitely return should we ever revisit fascinating Venice.
Antonella was the perfect host. Gave detailed directions to her B and B. Breakfast was delicious. Room was beautiful and clean.

About the Host, Antonella
In the historical center of Venice my husband Mauro and I will be happy to welcome you to our Bed and Breakfast. We are both architects and the transformation of our house into a B & B was our first working venture together. Amazingly we never argued about the color of the curtains ....
See you there!
