My sisters had a good time and very nice stay!!! In the words of my sisters, 'they were fantastic. Although we had some confusion in the beginning, they were very accommodating to us and we loved our stay. Sooo relaxing. Thanks for everything."
Alberto graciously picked us (family of 3) up from Marco Polo airport in the late evening. He is a person of few words, as he only spoke Italian and French, but not English. We arrived at a vacant house in the country about 35 min. away. It has basic furnishings. He provided drinks in the frig and sweets in the cupboard. We were welcome to cook; however, cookware was a bit sparse and condiments nil; otherwise, the place is very clean, neat and comfortable. To get to Venice, Alberto arrived promptly the next morning and dropped us off at the bus stop. The bus ride took about one hour. He picked us up at the stop when we called and drove us back to the house. He is very prompt and seemed like a nice guy. The next day he dropped us off at the airport so we can catch our flight.
The host canceled my reservation 4 days before arrival.
