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.

La ubicación muy buena, cerca de todo. La habitación muy linda como en la foto publicada. Rico desayuno que dejan en puerta para que uno lo tome en la habitación cuando quiera. Antonella muy amable y buena anfitriona. Volvería y lo recomiendo
I booked the apartment for my parents. The communication with Antonella beforehand was really good.
My parents had a wonderful stay at Antonella's place. Good location, sufficient breakfast, they said they would definitely recommend the B&B.
Thank you Antonella.
The house is great with good location and fabulous breakfast! Due to time clashes, Antonella and us don't meet so much, but she is so kind to prepare everything well! Recommended!
We stayed in Corte Vecchia for three nights in late March. The room was lovely, the house was lovely, the neighbourhood of Dorsoduro was lovely and we spent a lot of time walking round other parts of Venice for comparison. I would definitely stay here again were we to return.
We kept missing Antonella during the trip but she very kindly made the effort to meet up with us one evening. All her communication prior to the trip was prompt and very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Corte Vecchia to someone visiting Venice.
Perfectly located this place is an excellent spot to discover Venezzia. Antonella is a nice host. The room is wide enough for two. Wifi is OK, bathroom perfect. What you can see is what you'll get.
Antonella and Mauro were very welcoming, and gave fabulous restaurant recommendations. The room we stayed in was clean and nice, and we really enjoyed the location.
Superbe séjour chez Antonella, merci pour toutes les attentions, et aussi de nous avoir prêté ta poussette :) La chambre est très chouette, lumineuse, calme, très bien décorée (ce vert!) et assez spacieuse pour accueillir tranquillement un lit de bébé. Quelques très bons restaurants dans les environs, ce qui ne gâche rien.

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!
