“relaxed haven close to venice”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Only twenty minutes by boat from Venice. Enjoy a bicycle ride around the island. Close by is a lovingly renovated castle (ok it's a very grand tower) with good exhibitions. Nice walks and beaches to swim from. Clean and simple rooms with comfy beds.

Sant'Erasmo is the grocery of Venecia and as such a locals island.
The prices are better than on the main city which makes it a good location if you don't mind wasting a little longer on commuting. But it's also a plus for those like me that like to see the real world and not only the touristic settings. You will defintely share the vaporetto with the locals and hear the stories and the worries that go through their lifes.
The hotel is family oriented (bikes and other stuff) and has a shuttle bus that connects with the vaporetto making it very convenient.
The only downsize is that it's a little bit more moisty and bug infested than our accomodation in the "city".

Just returned from a fabulous trip to Venice made even better by discovering this hotel.
Il Latto Azzurro sits on a quiet corner of the island of San Erasmo. San Erasmo is a calm retreat away from the intensity of Venice. Easily accessible by vaporretto it's an ideal spot to explore the city and the beautiful islands in the lagoon.
The hotel is simple, clean and relaxed. Breakfast was a buffet of fruit, cereals, toast and jams. The staff are all friendly and helpful, Julie was especially so on our visit by taking numerous messages from Italian friends.

Free bicycles available to do some exploring or reaching the waterbus at Capanone to get to Venice.

Highly recommended

Il Lato Azzurro and the pretty Island of Sant Erassmo provided the perfect compliment of peace and relaxation to our first trip to Venice, and for me Italy.

Starting and ending our 5 days somewhere so completely different to the full on assalt on the senses was great for recharging our batteries!!

Julie, Gholam & Tonino have created a little gem of a place here, the setting is beautiful, the rooms clean and roomy, the breakfast simple but adequate and the service welcoming and relaxed. The free bikes are a great touch too!

Highly Recommended!

The small hotel is situated on St. Erasmo - a very green island about 25 minutes from Venice. The people there are wonderful, kind and always give you a feeling of being at exactly the right place.
The rooms are clean and have everything you need - including nice views over the lagoon or into the green. The breakfast is typical italian but you get everything you need - just ask for it.
Unfortunately we did not have the time to dine at the Lato - maybe next time - we will certainly return.

We loved staying on this small, quiet friendly island. Saint Esrasmo is the market garden island of Venice. It takes 25 mins to get from here by boat to the main sights. Emmanuelle who runs the house is a mine of knowledge, and there are bikes to get you to the boat stop (only a few hundred metres away). The prices are very reasonable - not the inflated tourist prices of the central areas. We really appreciated the relaxing boat trips and the quiet of the isand at the end of a hard days sightseeing.
The accommodation is basic but very clean with en-suite, and the breakfasts are simple, but everything is fairtrade.
I intend to stay at Lato Azzuro again.
