Casa delle Rose
, Via Smirne 11, Venice-Lido, Veneto.
ould it be any more ideal than this? A beautiful B&B on the Venice Lido with the beach close by for a bit of R&R, then hop on the waterbus and it’s a short journey into the heart of Venice. Casa delle Rose is a large apartment on the first floor of a classical Venetian house providing three bed and breakfast guest rooms.
The spacious hallway is the heart of Casa delle Rose, elegantly decorated with a high ceiling, chequerboard floor, ornate hardwood doors and a deep cornice with concealed lighting. There’s a fridge and kettle here with all the requisites for guests to make a drink whenever they like. At the end of the hallway is the breakfast room, equally ornate, where owner Stefano serves breakfast each morning.
The three guest rooms are colour-themed. The Green Room is the smallest, but nevertheless very ample with a kingsize bed and two windows overlooking the garden. The private bathroom is adjacent, and is complete with a window, shower, two basins, etc. The Pink Room has a charming feminine decor, sufficient space to allow a kingsize bed and a sofa along with the other furnishings and two windows looking onto a tree-lined side street. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower and is shared with one other room. The Blue Room is the biggest and most elegant of all. It’s bright room that receives the morning sun and has an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. All three rooms have flatscreen televisions and air-conditioning.
Reviews show how much guests appreciate the beauty of the house and Stefano’s personal attention. It’s small, simple and exquisitely well-done. The location is conveniently central, just 150 metres from the Gran Viale, the main street of the Lido where the main activities like restaurants, bars and shops are. The Bed and Breakfast is also just a 15 minute walk from the International Film Festival Venice that takes place right here on the Lido during the first days of September each year.
