Bright and cheerful flat in Venice's Lido with terrace on the lagoon allowing for an amazing, romantic view! The flat is made of 2 twin (can be united to form two double) bedrooms, 1 kitchen, and one bathroom. This is a holiday flat so furnishing is quite simple but includes all you need - including air cooling units in the bedrooms.
This flat is perfect if you want to visit Venice with a twist. The Lido is one of Venice's largest islands, and where the beaches are! It's also where Thomas Mann's novel (and Visconti's wonderful film) 'Death in Venice' is set, and where the Venice film festival is held - so look out for actors lounging around in this romantic setting!
The Lido island is easly reachable by car ( with a ferry boat ) or via Vaporetto (the local water-bus) and then a short bus ride (this island sports a couple of roads!) takes you to the flat. The Casino, centre of the film festival, is 2km/1.3 miles away.
The island is long and lean and you can see the sea on either sides from the terrace, on one side (about 10 seconds walk) you can see the rest of Venice, and on the other side (about 2 minutes walk) you can swim in the sea and access some pretty fancy beaches on the left, and some pretty wild rocks on the right, desert, with any people, also in summer time!
On the right top of the isle there's Alberoni: a forest on the beach! amazing!
3 bikes are available in the garden to visit the beaches and to choose the best " spritz & cicchetti " of the island!
If you want a good friend of mine can you bring by wooden boat long the canals or in the lagoon.
I have now redecorated the entire flat, replaced the water heater, and fixed the wifi!

da poco ho tinteggiato l'intero appartamento, cambiato la caldaia, sistemato il wi-fi!
A basic apartment with everything you need except for a dishwasher.
The pluses - serviceable bikes come with the apt and the balcony is quite pleasant and breezy in the afternoon. In the evening in summer though, the mosquitoes make it impossible to sit out on it. The apt is some distance from the vaporetto station but the beaches near it are the best ones on the Lido.
The photos are somewhat deceiving as the building is run down and the apt could use a paint job.
The wifi is erratic and hardly ever worked the 9 nights we stayed there. Also, the water heater is the old fashioned kind and does not maintain the temperature in the shower for very long making for on and off hot water. During the summer when it's hot, this is manageable if somewhat inconvenient.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
