The property itself is lovely. It was very clean and comfortable, and it is easy walking distance to the bus stop to get into Venice or padoa. However, we were expecting to be able to use the garden shown in the pictures, but this is actually simonetta's garden and not for use by guests. Also, based on the photos we did not realise that the small outside area (under the arches) out the front of the villa was to be shared between 3 families, so there was much less outside space for us to us than we were expecting, and a lot less private. Also the check out time on here was 11:00, but simonetta has to go to work before this and will advise you that you have to leave before 10 (although as we showed her the booking details and said we had made all of out arrangements based on 11:00 she did eventually say we could stay to 11:00 and was accomodating). All in all a lovely place but the description could do with being a bit more specific.
The apartment is cool inside (39c outside) well eqipped and very comfortable to unwind after our daily adventures exploring the nearby cities of Padova, Verona , Treviso and of course Venice by train. Ran out of time for Bologna and Vicenza !
A family of four (two teenagers ) easily accommodated as the apartment is spacious and well equipped with all the listed amenities and some food/drink which was very kindly provided by the hosts on our arrival (a late Sunday evening)
Easily contactable and very helpful hence our full recommendation here. Even the wifi was excellent for planning routes and booking tickets on line.
Local restaurant and bakery full of local Italians was very good as is the train service either from Busa di Vigonza or Padova for the above listed cities we visited. Buses however are slightly more challenging but nevertheless a local bus stop is about 1km away which we used as is the friendly Tobacconist shop for buying tickets. Also a
large supermarket about a mile away was handy for the food shopping.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay here without any problems whatsoever but although we are a hardy family the walk back from the local station is a bit tiring after the third day in 35+c heat so a car is probably better suited for this apartment to make it absolutely perfect.
Thank you for a great holiday!
