Everything was perfect. The bungalow is small, but really clean and has everything to make you feel like at home (microwave, laundry machine, water boiler...) The host Francesca is a trustworthy and reliable person and was really nice.
My family of four spend a great three nights at the "Venice home to relax and emotions". Francesca communicated well and often before we arrived, and Emanuela met us at the door. While she spoke no English, and we no Italian, we were able to communicate. She is very warm and welcoming, very proud of her home, and spent time to show us how everything worked and give us recommendations of where to eat, and checked in daily to see how we were doing. The apartment is very clean, well stocked and quite big, in a great location with a very nice garden area, which is unusual in the center of Venice. Both Francesca and Emanuala responded quickly to any questions we had. Our only complaint were the beds, which were not as comfortable as we would have liked. But we definitely recommend this home for either two couples or a family.
We had a great time at the bungalow 13! The bungalow is really comfortable, nice and very good equipped. It is in the pinewood, the climate is very good and it is peaceful.
Perfect location, the sea ist beautiful.
Francesca is a very nice host, everything was very easy- the communication fast and very good! There is really tasty wine from her farm.
We will come back!
This apartment was perfect for our family of four. Even nicer in real life than in the pictures. It is owned by the Pasti family -- Signora Pasti lives downstairs and will welcome you to the apartment in slow Italian. We speak no Italian but had no trouble communicating. Her son and daughter speak excellent English and are available by phone or email. They all were excellent hosts, asked if they could help with dinner reservations, and ordered a water taxi to come right to the apartment when it was time to go to the airport.
The apartment itself is lovely -- clean, modern and full of light. The windows in the master bedroom and kitchen look straight down onto a little canal. In the morning you can watch the delivery boats unloading, in the evening the occasional gondola slips past. The windows on the other side look out on a small garden and tennis courts and a view of red tile roofs and church towers. The neighborhood was perfect for us -- it felt like a real residential neighborhood, just on the edge of many major sites. It is close to the tourist squares of San Polo and Frari, but our favorite square was San Giaciamo del Orio, just a few hundred meters away, with a grocery store, bakery, fruit market, restaurants, and real Venetians doing their shopping. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay there again. Thank you, Pasti Family!
Garden Charme was completely as advertised. The best part about this place is the space. Venice and Italian tourist areas can be quite compressed and busy. Garden Charme is surrounded by brick walls on 3 sides and a canal on the other. Open the gate with your key and there is a tennis court (private) and a garden. What an oasis after a long day of crowds. We had 4 of us, Garden Charme holds 6 and it was palatial. Francesca's mom, Emanuela, was fantastic and an excellent host. No English but not an issue whatsoever. Hand signals, bits of English, Italian and French - whatever - it works. We booked partly because of a chance to interact with her and the Venetian culture and it was well worth it. Easy, easy walk from the train station. We would only book with the Pasti family upon returning.
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Venice home for relax and emotions. We arrived by cruise ship and followed the walking directions to the apartment. It was some work because we chose to walk from P.Roma. Francesca's directions on how to get to the apartment were easy to follow. Her mother is charming and the woman who showed us the apartment was very good. We bought their wine which is excellent! Now the area was perfect, quiet, beautiful, would stay here again. Great restaurants and shops, be sure to try La Zucca, our best meal in Italy! You will need reservation but very close to apartment. We sat out in the garden after sightseeing and enjoyed watching the tennis players. The apartment is spotless and comfortable. This is a little bit of heaven in a very busy city. We hope to return and will be checking into more wine. Clay and Chris
Everything was perfect. Very nice Bungalow and Region. You have everything you need,perfect for families.
The staff is very friendly.
I really recommend these bungalows.
Blue on Venice was a wonderful place to stay! The hosts, Francesca and her mother were great. They showed the highest level of hospitality and welcomed my family with open arms. The communication before and durning our stay was very easy. The apartment is beautiful and immaculately kept. It was exactly as described and perfect for 4 people. The furniture and design are very nice too. The views of the tennis court and canal add a unique touch to the experience. We are a young couple who brought our parents along. The kitchen was fully equipped and Francesca provided a welcome starter kit with basic pasta, water, juice etc. the location is ideal for the busy town of Venice - just far away enough from the crowds but all sites are still very accessible. It was easy to find from the close by vaporette stop. We would definitely recommend a stay in the apt and we hope to return someday. It was so much fun to wonder the neighborhood and get lost!
We loved the apartment and Francesca's mom was a hoot!
Terrific location to explore Venice and the Partment was top quality.
It had a great kitchen and was spotless.
They have a winery and for $5 a bottle you can't go wrong.
Bol with confidence and enjoy!
It was realy beauteiful place for vacation, just 100 m from the beach, I recommend to people who love nature and peaceful place.
Francesca is an excellent guest. She communicated well with us before the check in and everything went well. I recommend her as a guest
