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!
Emanuele gentilissimo e disponibile. Casa grande e confortevole esattamente come da descrizione. Anche ben attrezzata per cucinare.
The flat is well equipped and an easy walk from the centre of Mestre and a short bus ride from Venice. We enjoyed our stay at Emanuele's place.
Abbiamo trascorso tre giorni a Venezia in famiglia, sei persone! L'appartamento di Emanuele è risultato perfetto e corrispondente alle nostre aspettative: camere da letto spaziose, una cucina abitabile e gradevole, servizi igienici molto carini.L'appartamento è situato proprio vicino al centro di Mestre, in una zona davvero tranquilla con un vicinato molto simpatico e accogliente. Tanti negozietti a prossimità che consentono di acquistare tutto il necessario. Inoltre nel quartiere c'é anche l'Agenzia Hellovenezia dove si possono acquistare tuttti gli abbonamenti evitando le file delle agenzie veneziane. La fermata dell'autobus per Venezia è a due passi ed in circa 25 minuti si è a Piazzale Roma....unico inconveniente, gli autobus sono davvero stracarichi! Ma sicuramente l'aspetto più importante è rappresentato dall'accoglienza familiare e disponibile del proprietario, con il quale abbiamo instaurato da subito rapporti di reciproca fiducia.
We had a great time at the wonderful house of emanuele. We were 4 people and we had the whole apartment on our own. The apartment is very clean and modern and the host emanuele was the most helpful host i ever met. I can highly recommand the place. Enjoy!
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Experience was disorganized on arrival. We arrived on street at pre set time, but Emanuele was no where to be found. After standing with our suitcases for half an hour, a local man came to our rescue, and phoned Emanuele from his cell phone. Emanuele told him he would come in 5 minutes, but it was another half hour. On arrival to house, there was laundry still drying, and beds were not fully made, and fridge held open food from previous guests. Now for the positive. Emanuele was very friendly and apologetic. House was in great location, and very easy to get bus into Venice.
Emanuele was an amazing host. He was waiting at the house for us and spent quite a bit of time explaining everything. The bus was just a few minutes away and takes you to Venice very quickly. We spent most nights back in Mestre because Venice was too crowded and touristy. The house was as described and we enjoyed our stay there.
We, a swedish family of 5, stayed at Ema´s place for a 4 day´s visit to Venice and it was absolutely perfect. The house is very spacious, clean, comfortable beds and had all we needed. Just a couple of minutes away from the bus to Venice. And 10 minutes walk away takes you to the beautiful piazza of Mestre where you can enjoy an Aperol Spritz or a Gelato.
Emanuele (the owner) is very helpful and charming. He speaks perfect english and does everything to help you.
We would absolutely like to come back to this place and are happy to recommend it to anyone going to Venice.

Отличное жилье. Отличное расположение. Приветливый , отзывчивый хозяин. Размер квартиры позволяет принять большую семью. Рекомендую всем.
Excellent housing. Excellent arrangement. Friendly, sympathetic owner. The size of the apartment allows to accept a big family. I recommend to all.
Lovely appartement and good starting point to visit Venice! Everything you need during a short stay is around (bus stop, supermarket, bakery, etc.) Emanuele is a very friendly, communicative and open-minded host, he was always available! We were very content and can warmly recommend this appartement!
