Villa Casanova
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2013

We are just coming to the end of our holiday in Lido, Venice.
Villa Casanova has been a wonderful place to stay. Alessandro is extremely welcoming and helpful, always ready to answer questions and give good advice.
He gave very helpful email advice before we arrived and has been then ideal host throughout our stay and always cheerful.
There was always a plentiful supply of good quality food for breakfast. The homely atmosphere was added to by the availability of the kitchen for cups of tea in the evening. There was also the free availability of cycles and beach umbrellas.
We have had a marvelous holiday and would recommend Villa Casanova highly.

Just returned from 4 nights at Villa Casanova and didn't want to leave! The staff are very friendly and helpful, the room although small (we had an attic room) was very comfortable and clean, the location is brilliant - 5 minutes from the water bus station and main strip down to the beach. Our favourite part though was the breakfast! My boyfriend isn't a coffee drinker but he has now been converted thanks to Alessandro's cafe latte's! There was also juice, pastries, cereals, bread, prosciutto, mozzarella cheese and tomatoes - all fresh! :)

Will be recommending this place to anyone I know who is planning a trip to Venice.

The Lido also gives you the best of both worlds with Venice on your doorstep (15 minutes water bus) plus the glorious beach if you fancy a day sunbathing after walking around busy Venice!

The attic rooms are just lovely with delightful, rustic decor, TV and aircon. There is plenty of space in the bathroom and a lovely powerful shower. The breakfasts were superb before but somehow Allesandro has managed to make them even better. My friend and I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else, especially after we had to have one night elsewhere 4 years ago thanks to air traffic controllers striking! On that occasion Allesandro found us a room when he had no space left so we really do have something to compare his quality to. This 'other' hotel was supposed to be better than Villa Casanova but believe me, it most certainly was not. As I say above, this was our 4th stay in Villa Casanova and it really is like coming home, so friendly and easy to stay in. The location of the villa to the vaparetto couldn't be better, being only about a 3 min walk away, but the villa is in a lovely quiet street. It was a really good day when we chose this as a place to stay and we recommend it to anyone we know who is talking of going to Venice.

clean and neat rooms and very good breakfast. Alessandro is a very nice person ready to help at all times. He even arranged to pack a couple of personal stuff forgotten while we checked out and send them to our address! Thanks Alessandro, we had a wonderful time and will definitely book with you next time around.

We booked ourselves a 3-night stay at Villa Casanova on the island of Lido, for two couples.
Lido is an hour or so boat ride from Marco Polo airport and the return tickets cost €27 each.
We went with another couple (age range from 47-60!). It was friends of friends who had actually recommended this hotel to us and it turned out to be excellent advice.
You're far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle (and expense!) of staying in one of the city hotels (unless that's what you want of course!), but only a 20min ride on a vaporetti from Lido to San Marco. We bought ourselves 72hr travel passes (€35 each) and these were well worth it (€7 pp per trip otherwise).
Our host was Alessandro and I can't rate him highly enough as a hotelier. He has the knack of pitching himself just right, i.e. friendly but efficient, knowledgeable but not pushy, etc.. Great chap.
I asked Alessandro if he could recommend a particular Gondola route, which he did and it was spot on (depart just below Rialto). Some of the best advice for the trip came from the Gondolier, who said that the best way to explore Venice is to simply "walk lost". Couldn't put it better myself.
We went to all the obvious sites and it's all subjective so I'll not cover that here, other than to say that we went up the Campanile of San Giorgio di Maggiore instead of the one in St Mark's Sq, as you supposedly get a better perspective of Venice; we were very lucky with the weather and the view was indeed spectacular. Recommended. (€6 each).
It was our first visit to Italy and we were taken by the friendly nature of the people we encountered.
All in all a great trip, the foundation of which was our base at Villa Casanova - so a big thanks again to Alessandro. The only reason I knocked a mark off for the room was that we didn't have any tea or coffee making facilities, but for all I know that may be standard for Venice. Anyway it's a minor issue.
Could go on and on about all sorts of things, but my advice would be - JUST GO!
(By the way - take plenty of money - Venice is Expensive! Particularly for eating out during the evening....).

From the first moment we arrived in Villa Casanova everything was just excellent. Lido is perfect place if you want to run away from crowded Venice. Alessandro, Flor and Elena who are working in Villa Casanova are all so friendly and helpful. Breakfast is outstanding, so tasty and all the products are fresh. They will make coffee or cappuccino just for you. Villa is situated in very nice place, in the evening you can just rest outside in garden our if you are active you can take some of bicycles (it is for free) and go around Lido. My decision to stay in Villa Casanova was the best I did and I definitely will go back again. We felt like home in Villa Casanova.
