My girlfriend and I stayed at Ca' Noemi in May 2012 whilst we travelled through Italy from Verona to Naples. Our 3 night stay at this remarkable B&B will undoubtedly be the most memorable experience of our Italy tour.
We booked our stay through booking.com, and within hours of confirming our booking we were talking to Valter through e-mails, with Valter advising us on all aspects of travel and the local area (including lots of pictures), all of which were absolutely spot-on when we arrived.
We arrived in Venice by train, and immediately bought our 72 Hour travel pass from the ticket kiosk opposite the station, which covers both the Vaporetto (Water Bus) and bus through Lido to Malamocco. We jumped straight on the Vaporetto to relax and enjoy the sights of the Grand Canal, and when we arrived at Lido, Valter was there to give us a lift to the B&B. I have seen some reviews commenting on how long it takes to get from Venice to Ca' Noemi; the truth is it takes 10-15 minutes on the Vaporetto from St. Mark's Square to Lido, then a further 10 minutes on the local bus to Malamocco (where the B&B lies 1 minute walk away). We never had to wait more than 2 minutes for a bus to arrive.
Valter and his Wife Katia are so welcoming and hospitable. By the end of your stay you will feel as though you have been welcomed into a family home, rather than to a B&B. Our breakfasts were spent talking openly to Valter, Katia and a lovely couple from Estonia about anything and everything, even hilarious conversations about politics! The breakfast itself was very fulfilling; with almost endless supplies of Coffee and all types of cereals, pasties, yoghurt, fruit, brioches etc.
Our room had everything we needed and more. A beautiful decor with wooden beams on the ceiling, a nice big comfy bed, a bathroom with a great shower, lots of storage space, heating, air conditioning... the lot!
Our evenings moved from sitting outside in the beautiful garden enjoying a bottle of wine (with Katia bringing us blankets and home-made biscuits), to the kitchen, where we had interesting conversations with Katia about life in Malamocco.
We left Ca' Noemi to travel on to Florence, and immediately missed Valter and Katia. Needless to say we will definitely be coming back. Not just for Ca' Noemi, but also for the surprisingly tranquil and relaxing escape that is Malamocco, from the bustling streets of Venice. This really is a hidden gem, and a home away from home!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- “You must experience this b and b and this village!” Reviewed 25 July 2011 1person found this review helpfulThe village of Malamocco is tranquil and just what is needed after the hectic pace of sighseeing in Venice. The location between the lagoon and the sea is magical. There is a good beach and fabulous sunsets. You can explore the whole area by bicycle provided. The town is ancient, with old alleyways to explore. Katia and Valter are the best hosts you could possibly ask for. They have renovated this house to a high standard and their hospitality shows their pride in their home and their love of people. Breakfast (apricot croissants to die for) is served on the terrace or in the family kitchen/dining room and offers a good variety. I will return as soon as possible to this little piece of heaven. Room Tip: A room at the front or the back gives the best ambiance. this is a person who spent holiday in CANOEMI ... more less
