We had a lovely stay in Paolo's sunny, clean, cheerful apartment. It was a short walk from the town center and had all the amenities we needed. In fact, we loved his mocha pot so much that we bought one of our own before leaving Italy.
Paolo greeted us at his home when we arrived and walked us through all the details of our apartment. His wife and younger son were also home, and everybody made us feel quite welcome. They gave us a helpful packet with maps of Mirano and Venice, as well as tips for how to get between the two. Although Paolo recommended the train, we discovered we really liked taking the bus - the stop is only two short blocks from the apartment and the drive to Venice is so pretty.
While Venice is certainly the main attraction, set aside an afternoon to wander Mirano using Paolo's handy map of the town center. The public garden and piazza are a welcome respite from the tourist crush in Venice, and you can enjoy a spritz on the patio of several restaurants in town.
Thanks to Paolo and his family for a lovely stay!
Nice apartment in very quiet building.Roomy and comfy at same time. Several grocery stores in 3 min walking distance.Paolo met us right on time and he was very kind and helpful - gave us all the directions and huge booklet with maps. This is perfect place to stay if you visit Veneto by car.If you go by plane - consider that there is a bus station 300 m from the apartment and bus runs every 20 min.
paolo and his wife went out of their way to make my stay seamless and enjoyable. he met my bus, showed me around and gave me plenty of information and maps. he lent me a bike to cycle the 20 mins to the train. and when they realised i was returning at night they gave me lights and a reflective jacket so i would be safer on the road. he even invited me into his home and showed me his holiday photos so i could see another side of venice. the apartment was well cared for, well equipped, spotless and elegant. it is conveniently located right next door to a big supermarket, and over the road from a restaurant. the only downsides was that unfortunately it was opposite a large electrical sub station and pylon. also there is no washing machine in the apartment even tho it says there is , however paolo made it easy to use his, as he lives just around the corner. i had a wonderful time in venice and would recommend this as a nice place to stay.
We are glad to know Vashti has appreciated the attention and care she needed. In fact our sensitiveness does not allow us to forget about our guest to protect our interest. To explain it clearly our offer does not include only the usage of a perfectly furnished and fully functional apartment; to us it is much more important the customer satisfaction at the end of the stay regarding his/her arrangement arriving at the airport, baggage transport, use and hours of public means of transport, parking in case of car availability, where to buy food, suggested restaurants, touristic visits planning and organization, timing and schedule of vacation and, in the end, a big and exhaustive information booklet made by us, based on our professional experience on organizing vacation trip for groups that was a big part in my personal professional life.
The washing machine has been repaired and put in its place.
The building in the near street is not a power plant , as Vashti wrongly wrote, it is a 1 floor little building of a telephone company: no pollution, no noises.
I am sorry that Vashti did not let us the opportunity to give her proper answers during her stay.
Unfortunately we couldnt meet Paolo, but his son was very freindly and everything was easy. The appartment was clean end well equiped. Everything was like on the pictures except the washing machine in the bath room. He offered us to use his own machine but we didnt need it for the three days we stayed there. The appartment is located very close to shops and restaurant so everything was easy. The train station is not walking distance but with a car it is easy to reach and parking is free on the other side of the station. We recommend this flat for short visits to venice.
The flat was clean and in good condition, we enjoyed staying there. The special thing about this flat are the hosts: Paolo and his son Francesco are hosts who really care about their guests! Right after booking, I received a lot of information about getting to Mirano by car and about Venice and the region per mail, so I could make a first plan on what to see there and get a brief impression of our holiay destination. When we arrived, Paolo took his time to show us the flat and explained us everything we needed to know about our location in the nice town of Mirano and what's important to see in the area and of course how to get to Venice. He had prepared some easily understandable maps of our surroundings, which included supermarkets to get your groceries, the closest restaurants next to the flat if you don't want to cook or you are just hungry after a long travel and a simple map telling you how to get to the Mira-Mirano station when you want to visit Venice. This helped us to focus on the purpose we went there: Have a nice holiday and enjoy Venice! Just a good host who wants you to have a nice time as his guest, I can definitely recommend the place if you want to visit Venice!
