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).
