... and checked our tickets an told us we would have to change in Domodosola. We were really confused as to why, but we think we gathered that there was a electrical issue in the tunnel under the mountains, so they ushered us all off the train and onto busses. The busses took us over the mountains, through gorgeous views, and into Brig. In Brig, we got back on the train. We rode to Speiz, where we got off, got Swiss francs, and got on ...
... made us very excited for breakfast the next day. The room itself was very beautiful and fancy and we quickly did a few items of laundry so that they could start drying and then we headed out for the afternoon.
The first item on the agenda was to find something to eat. It was about 2:00 in the afternoon and all we had eaten so far for the day was a croissant back in Florence. We found our way into Campo San Polo where there was a nice pizzeria that I read about in our Top ...
... long Carnevale celebration so there would be no resting. Drew and I were left to celebrate and explore Venice on our own. There are about 50,000 people who live in Venice, there were about 150,000 people in Venice on that Sunday. Remember Venice is a walking city, no roads, so people just fill the streets from end to end. We were told Monday would be less busy and would probably be a better day to visit churches and museums etc., so we ...
... down the motorway.
Arrived in Venezia about 2pm to find that our caravan park was having it’s "rest" time. Basically everything shuts down from 1pm to 3pm, not even allowed to drive the winny in and set up….everything just stops. By the time 3pm came around there was a queue of winnys waiting to get into the park. We killed our hour in the winny queue by going for a walk around the park. Walked down to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Oltre Il Giardino Venice
Ouah ! Quel bel hôtel, calme, raffiné mais sobre malgré tout. Vivement recommandé. C'est un vrai bonheur de retrouver le calme de l'Oltre il Giardino après une journée passée à visiter la ville dans le bruit ambiant, et de se réveiller le matin dans son grand lit confortable avec l'odeur du petit déjeuner.
Très bien tenu, service discret et attentionné. Tous les restaurants que nous a indiqué Lorenzo étaient merveilleux. Je crois que c'est vraiment l'hôtel où aller à Venise.

If you want a small 6 room boutique hotel within 10mins of the Rialto bridge, front garden by the canal, plenty of charm and 5* service then this is the place for you.
Stunning home - hotel!
After reading all of the reviews about this hotel I emailed them for a price. The response was quick, detailed and so friendly I booked up right away.
Lorenzo & staff did everything to make our stay perfect. Staying here feels like staying with family. We had a Junior suite which was spacious and beautifully decorated. The service and amenities at Oltre Il Giardino was exceptionally superb. We also have to say that the best part about Oltre Il Giardino is the wonderful personalized service...we particularly enjoyed a lovely breakfast, which was delicious and beautifully presented. We also really enjoyed the area that the hotel is in.
We can't wait to come back for another visit. +++
Après avoir lu tous les commentaires sur cet hôtel, je leur ai envoyé un email pour leur demander le prix de la chambre et ils m'ont répondu rapidement, en détail et avec tant de gentillesse que j'ai réservé tout de suite.
Oltre Il Giardino CasaiFrari in the San Polo sestieri is a very elegant place, and the service is outstanding! It's in a very picturesque and residential part of Venice, and yet also very conveniently located: water taxis can stop right outside the hotel; by foot, it took us less than 10 minutes to get to all of the following -- the San Toma vaporetto stop, the train station, and the restaurants Da Fiore and Antiche Carampane; and there are all kinds of cafes, osterias, pizzerias, pastry shops, old bookstores and other small galleries etc. nearby. The public spaces consist of a charming garden with magnolia and olive trees and sage bushes, and a light-filled living/breakfast room with stylishly inviting furnishings and lots of interesting and useful books. We had the Turquoise Suite and the Green Suite, both of which are fabulously spacious, elegantly decorated without being pretentious or overwrought, and the beds with fine linens and the sofas are so very comfortable ...... The bathrooms in both suites are wonderfully huge and luxurious by all standards, European or American or Asian.
Loved Il Giardino
We stayed our last 3 nights in Italy at Oltre Il Giardino. It was a wonderful ending to a fantastic 2 weeks. The house is decorated with great style and the attention to detail in the rooms (bath robes, chocolates, fresh flowers, fine linens) made our stay even more pleasant. Great location in a residential neighbourhood, walking distance to shops, restaurants and the train station. Great breakfast in the sitting room. Lorenzo was a great host and his staff was warm and very helpful. Definitely going back. Highly recommended.
This is such a beautiful place. I found out about it through Conde Nast Traveller magazine. We stayed in the Turquoise room which was lovely with the most stunning bathroom - huge shower and a clawfoot bath. Breakfast in the garden each morning was bliss. Highly recommended and superb value for money considering the average cost of accommodation in Venice.
We just came back from Venice where we stayed 4 nights at Oltre Il Giardino in the Green suite on the ground floor. The hotel is very quiet and peaceful but still in central location which is great after the hustle and bustle of the tourist attractions. Our suite was very spacious with separate sitting room and lovely bathroom with both shower and bath, all very clean. Breakfast was also very good and served in the lovely garden. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Would definitely go back!
We stayed at Oltre il Giardino for four nights at the beginning of this month. Before we ever arrived we were very impressed with the excellent service we received in making the reservation.
Like a dream
We had a wonderful stay at this hotel in January 2006.
My husband and stayed for 3 nights in the Turquoise suite and it was lovely!
The rooms are beautiful, very spacious, staff extremely helpful and friendly.
We would definately stay in this hotel again!
