Ideale per chi vuole vivere la vera essenza di Venezia lontano dal caos turistico. Posto tranquillo e silenzioso a poca distanza dalla fermata del vaporetto (10 minuti per piazza San Marco) e agevole anche a piedi. Tipica casa veneziana (no ascensore) essenziale ma pulita. Proprietario super disponibile ma allo stesso tempo discreto. La libertà è totale. Nei dintorni bar nel giardino e diversi ristoranti di buon livello dove mangiare.

Ottima location, vicinissima ai Giardini della Biennale e assai vicina all'Arsenale. Gestore molto gentile e assai disponibile. Inoltre la zona di Sant'Elena è tra le più alte di Venezia: ho trovato il tragitto da casa all'Arsenale quasi sempre asciutto nonostante i terribili giorni di Acqua Alta, e i ristoranti/pizzerie in zona sono rimasti sempre aperti nonostante i problemi avuti nel resto di Venezia. Fermata di vaporetto e riva del mare a sì e no 1 minuto di distanza.

Stanza ampia e luminosa in una bellissima zona immersa nel verde, tranquilla e poco battuta dai turisti, a due passi dai Giardini della Biennale. Adriano è stato molto ospitale e disponibile e ci ha fatti sentire a casa. Location ideale per chi vuole visitare la Biennale, ma anche per chi vuole scoprire la Venezia più autentica.

Adriano è molto gentile e premuroso, attento alle necessità. La truttura è in una zona tranquilla, fuori dal caotico centro, ma allo stesso tempo, comoda per tutti gli spostamenti, in quanto vicinissima al vaporetto di Sant'Elena. Quando torneremo a Venezia, verremo di nuovo al Vaniglia, è certo.
