“great way to venice and feels like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The owners of this villa are a wonderful family. Mother, father and 2 daughters. Not to mention two cute little dogs named Bianca and her pup Snoopy. The food was great! Coffee and a newspaper in the morning with breakfast, and if you like you could come back for supper. We took the bus to venice, about a 15 min ride. Spent the day in venice, came to what felt like home, had a drink, and the next morning we would sunbath all day by their wonderful pool. the villa had good music, food, and chairs. One day we will go back to visit this villa and the wonderful family!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This hotel is definitely recommended to people who want visit Venice and don't mind to be a bit further than the city itself. The bus stop is situated in 150 m. walk distance from the hotel. Bus number 19 leaves each 15 min. to Venice and reaches its central station (Piazzale Roma) in ~ 30 min. It's also convenient for the ones travelling by car. A new way has been constructed from the roundabout to the hotel and the car can be parked in hotel´s open parking area.
It has a small swimming pool and hence suitable in summer for families.

The rooms and sanitary are clean and basic. The breakfast is basic Italian breakfast and ok. The personnel consists of a family which are really friendly and helpful giving instructions to reach Venice and answering any other question.
A bus ticket can be bought at the reception desk for 1.30 euro.

From Mestre station take bus line 9 and get off at via Gobbi stop number 5/6. Attention: Each long street has only one bus stop name with different numbering. Via Gobbi Street has 6 bus stops. You have to get off at the 5th stop. On your right there is a huge yellow building called Anni Azzurri. It takes you about 20 minutes to reach there from Mestre train station.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2009

Villa Sara was a wonderful way to end a cruise. The owners were very welcoming & made us feel "at home." Their cute little dog, Bianca, came & sat with us under the pavillion & by the pool. Very relaxing atmosphere. Villa Sara is out in the country but is a "walkable" distance to town where there are a few restaurants. There is a local grocery store where we picked up food & brought back to Villa Sara for later. We sat outside with some wine, bread, cheese, fruit. A 20 euro ride from sea port to Villa Sara & 20 euro to air port. Rooms were very comfortable, clean & orderly. Nice bathrooms that were recently remodeled. The owners showed us pics of the 300 year old home before the reconstruction. They have done an amazing job. We would definitely stay there again if we ever get the chance to be in Venice again!
