Il Lato Azzurro

Address: via Forti, 13, 30141 Sant'Erasmo

The structure is ideal for excursions and study visits, scholastic and practical workshops, seminars and conferences for small and medium sized groups. In the house there is a big dining room (with adjacent smaller living room) for eating meals and to carry out activities, as well as a large veranda that overlooks the spacious garden facing onto the Venetian lagoon.


In Roman times a popular tourist resort - long considered the garden of Venice - the island of S.Erasmo, with its 750 inhabitants, is a traditional producer of fruit and vegetables. At the centre of the Northern Lagoon, between Punta Sabbioni (Cavallino), Lido, Murano and Burano, suspended between sea and sky, S.Erasmo in its leafy isolation offers pathways to nature (by bikes or on foot) to the lagoon (by boat and kayak), to Venice, or to the sea... a magical beach just a stones throw away in the middle of the sea, reminescent of a forgotten time...


Our hospitality in the island of S.Erasmo is offered in spacious rooms with en suite bathroom: single, double, triple and with extra beds (for groups and families or for single people whom wish to save by sharing a room with others).


The new cook Fatima prepares a very good cuscus, but also all the italian and Mediterranean cooking. Mediterranean cooking, with vegetarian option with ample use of vegetables from the island (traditional orchard of Venice). This is accompanied by wine from Piemont (the best reds) and Veneto/Friuli (the best whites). Breakfast is rich and traditional, with a good choice of Fair Trade products (CTM).


There are no televisions in the bedrooms, but there are a variety of books and magazines, for young and old. If asked for the guests can have a nice book. Here you can take part in recreational, sport, or cultural activities. There are 50 bicycles available for the guests and we offer itineraries for Venice, and the other islands and beaches, also in kayak. For adults and children, we offer educational course on peace and interculture, workshops and excursions on environmental education, training for the facilitation of group dynamics… And also… We offer international cultural exchanges, themed holidays /retreats, yoga and massage, gay and lesbian holidays (Sebastian week…), Italian language courses for foreigners, photographic and painting exhibitions… We host free of charge, for one night, artists who want to perform for other guests (shows of dance, music, song, storytelling, theatre, with a maximum of three persons at a time, in which one show = a night free of charge in a double or single room.

Departing from Venice, can be complicated for a tourist reaching Murano, Burano and Torcello by public transport, so we thought about comfortable tours of the islands which depart from the Santa Lucia train station in Venice, from Piazza San Marco and, in summer, also from Punta Sabbioni, the end of the Cavallino-Treporti coastline.

A novelty are also the tour of Burano, Murano and Venice starting from Punta Sabbioni and the daily excursion to Venice and its islands starting from Jesolo Lido.
