I enjoyed everything about our stay at Locanda Orseolo, from stepping off from our water taxi straight into the property, to the moment we had to leave.
The staff greeted us warmly, and had organised our room to be ready early for us, which was much needed after a harrowing car ride from Villefrance-sur-Mer to Nice airport. Our room was sumptuous, in the style of local Venetian shops. There was a sitting room, then the main bedroom, and an ample sized bathroom. You could view the passing gondolas from the windows in both rooms.
After a brief rest we went exploring, armed with a map provided by Barbara, indicating lunch establishments that fitted our criteria (simple, local food).
The staff were helpful in all other requests too (including my half a lemon with breakfast!).
In the room was a dossier with a list of local highlights, which we took great advantage of. If you plan to do the "Secret Itineraries tour" of Doge's Palace, as recommended, make sure you book in advance.
It was a total delight staying here, it is so nice to feel "taken care of".
