My name is Fabio, I'm your host that run the B&B, I'm a friend and I can speak english as I used to live and have a job in London(UK) long ago! You can share your Venetian experience with me and ask me all the time for advice or indications!!!!
P.s. In the morning I like to bake sometimes nice cakes and custards! Italian hand made(by me)!!!!
Interaction with Guests
I live at the BnB so, I'm pretty much reliable during the morning from 8:00 untill 12:00 and I usually sleep here. During afternoons and evenings unless I'm waiting anybody to show up for the check in, I usually live my life and I'm not present in the building.
Our experience in Venice was great! Fabio was very helpful during our stay, recommending places to visit and eat. He was extremely accommodating, opening the breakfast area before the usual hours for our very early departure.
The room was very spacious, bright and welcoming! The location is easily accessible being 5 minutes from the train station and being a few metres from a water bus stop.
We hope to be back again!
Fabio was a very helpful man, and our room was excellent. En suite, air con (much needed) and complementary sweets made our short stay in Venice that little bit nicer. Breakfast was great, cereals, toast, pastries etc, though some fresh fruit on offer could make it better
Great location for exploring Venice. Away from the big crowds. Our host Fabio was very welcoming. The room is clean and spacious. Breakfast/kitchen area is nice and well stocked up too.
Would definitely stay there again and also recommend Le Guglie BB to others
We had a wonderful stay with Fabio at the Le Guglie! The BnB is in a perfect location along the canal and away from the crowds - but close enough that you don't feel like it's a hassle to get to the main attractions. The bed was comfy, room was clean, tidy and spacious along with the bathroom and had everything you could wish for and more! Fabio is very welcoming and is willing to help with any questions! We would definitely stay here again if we were to return to Venice.
Fabio was very welcoming and helpful. The place is clean and was very quite. We really liked staying right on a canal. Thanks.
The location was GREAT! Also the room was perfect for staying two people. There was air conditional and fridge in the room. He also offered us a great breakfast. I totally recommend this air bnb.
Fabio es un anfitrión amable, considerado y se preocupa por el bienestar de sus huèspedes. El departamento está bien ubicado y posee todo lo imprescindible para una buena estadía; desde aire acondicionado hasta TV por cable en donde pude ver un partido de mi equipo River Plate directamente de Paraguay.

About the Host, Fabio
"Sono un ragazzo, mi piacciono le ragazze..." diceva Paul McCartney un paio di anni fa mentre era ospite al David Letterman Show quando gli chiesero di descriversi...Ma che dire, Sir Paul è un mito!!!
Parliamo di me, allora! Mi piace suonare la chitarra e cantare, ho avuto un gruppo musicale per un paio d'anni ma eravamo troppo all'avanguardia per essere capiti! Suono anncora ma adesso non sono più all'avanguardia ma più semplicemente un contemporaneo!
Ho vissuto per un anno a Londra in Inghilterra dove ho studiato inglese e lavorato per la premiata ditta Caffe Costa. Il mio lavoro? Beh, fare i caffè... Da questa esperienza mi è rimasta la passione per l'Inghilterra, le Public Houses, la musica Brit e la birra!
Ritornato a casa poi, per un paio d'anni ho fatto il Web Designer e Grafico pubblicitario, ma ora sono un ottima compagnia e un simpatico gestore di un piccolissimo B&B. Il B&B è piccolo ed accogiente con solamente 2 stanze ed è la sua forza: atmosfera intima, più contatto umano!
Ho la passione dello studio delle lingue straniere, al momento sto cercando di imparare il francese ed il tedesco...con scarsi risultati ma mi applico!
Il mio motto è intraducibile in inglese perchè si perde il gioco di parole, ma in italiano suona così:
"Un poeta ed un po' no"
