About this listing
This wonderful house with private garden is located in Venice Mainland, about 8 km away from the island (including the 5km bridge!). It was built by our grandparents and renovated by me and my brother with lots of help from loving, qualified friends. It was our way to bring new life into this quiet house which includes 7 different rooms: big and bright entrance, large living room with fully working fireplace (careful though!). luminous kitchen with all that you may need, 1 bedroom with en-suite bathroom and huge wardrobe, 1 bedroom with lots of light coming in (yes, there are windows on all sides of the house), another small bedroom with sofa bed and desk, 1 bathroom with whirlpool bathtub/shower.
This makes it the perfect accomodation for small groups of 4 to 6 people.
It offers wi-fi internet, phone line (limited to local calls), tv and dvd player and a stereo with the finest selection of indian classical music, electronica, traditional tunes and a glimpse of the best music from the past century, from minimalism to avant-garde (yes, we are musicians!).
It is about 1.2 km away from Venice Mestre train station and the closest bus station to Venice is 120 meters, with buses running every 10/15 minutes (tickes is 1.2 euros). Right around the corner, within 250 meters you can find grocery stores, pizzeria, library, public park with children space (50 meters), pharmacy, newspaper stand. In less than 10 minutes by foot you can reach Venice Mestre downtown with the lovely piazza Ferretto, shops, theaters, post office and all that you may need.
This is the ideal base for daytime trips to visit ancient venetian Villas, built along the river Naviglio sul Brenta.
We love organic vegetables and fruit, and we'll make sure to offer a small selection of selected seasoned local products, when available.
Have a beautiful day!
This apartment is located in a very silent neighborhood, please be kind enough to respect that if you don't want to verify yourself how little english italian policemen speak :-)
We've had problems with that just a couple of times, but this might not the best accomodation for wild parties.
Depending on the case, a deposit may be required and a legal contract is offered for everybody's convenience, we do want to act in regulation with current italian legislation.
An extra fee of 7 euros for heating/air conditioning/electricity and water is included in the price.
Pets are allowed, unless they are bigger than they owners!
Feel free to inquire or ask any question-
Un grand bonjour et merci pour son chaleureux accueil à Emanuele de Corinne , Léo, Paul et Edouard.
Nous avons trouvé un appartement propre et spacieux conforme à la description et aux photos présentées sur le site. Nous avons suggéré l'achat d'un micro-onde à Emanuele car très pratique. Quartier calme et agréable avec le bus et les commerces juste à côté. Venise est à 20mn maximum en bus. Pas besoin de prendre le train. Arrivé à l'aéroport, prendre le bus n°15 qui vous amène directement à l'arrêt de bus près de l'appartement. Les pass 3jours peuvent être achetés à côté de l'arrêt au bureau de tabac. Venise est tout proche et toujours aussi magnifique. Bon séjour aux futurs locataires et n'hésitez pas à poser des questions à Emanuele sur les endroits moins touristiques où vivent les "locaux" pour un séjour encore plus sympa.
El piso es mucho mejor de lo que se puede ver en las fotos. La ubicación es perfecta . tranquila y cerca de paradas de autobuses y supermercados. Es perfecto no solo para conocer Venecia. También otras ciudades maravillosas como padova. Verona. Bologna. Emanuele es un gran anfitrión! En resumen. Fuimos 4 personas y pasamos 4 días increíbles.
This house was absolutely AMAZING. There was 4 of us that stayed here and we were not disappointed in any way. The house is a 2 minute walk to the bus station that takes you right into Venice in about 15 mins. Emanuele was one of the nicest people that we have ever met, period. He let us know everything we needed in order to fully enjoy our time there. The house is fully stocked with everything you may need and was MORE than what we were expecting.
A familiy (two adults and two children) stayed three days in this apartment and spent wonderful days in Venice . We arrived by car and had a parking space directly in front of the house. The area is very safe and quiet. Our host was reachable at any time of the day and was very helpful to give us good advices to see Venice in an “Italian way”. The apartment is in good and clean condition. All the benefits of the apartment that has been describing in the listing were fine. We are very thankfully for our stay! This apartment and its owner we can recommend highly to all interested travelers.
Pour cause de travail Emanuele a du s'absenter et nous n'avons pas pu le rencontrer. Cependant, il a tout mis en œuvre pour nous faciliter l'accès à l'appartement (contacts sms et téléphone réguliers). L'appartement est conforme aux descriptions, confortable et agréable. De plus, il bien situé (à proximité de l'arrêt de bus pour Venize en moins de 30 mns).
Great house with loads of space, 25 min away by foot & bus to Tge wonderful Venice. Host is very warm hearted and know loads about his city. If you're searching for a place to stay close to venice and the motorway, and away from the noise of Venice center, thus is perfect for you!
Emanuel is a young artist, who is extremely kind and I'm sure he means the best when he rents out this cute place.
The location is not in the best neighborhood , but it's a charming apartment .
Which at this point needs some TLC, the bathroom showers don't drain properly.
One of the shower doors does not slide at all, it needs to be repaired.
The towels are extremely old.
When we arrived he had told us that another group had left a few days ago , and he said he had just washed the sheets which where hanging outside. And told us that the ones on the bed where cleaned...somehow we got the feeling that we where sleeping in dirty sheets.
The door knobs fall apart.
There was a blood stain or a red stain looking like blood on the light bulb of the chandelier in bathroom at the master room.
The wifi was ok
The kitchen was fine , had everything needed.
Aside from little stuff that needs some TLC,
The place is very accessible to Venice and the other islands.
It's comfortable and seems to be safe.
Emmanuel was very kind and a great host, he explained us where to go, he gave us great directions and maps. His recommendations where wonderful!
