Lovely place, only wish it had a poolPosted Aug 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Really enjoyed our stay. However, for a family holiday in July, the lack of pool is a problem.

Unbelievable!Posted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
It is hypocritical I know, that I always read other reviews but fail to ever leave one myself. I cannot do that with this hotel, as it was just completely wonderful. If you want an absolutely unforgettable stay, including the service, the room, the food, then this is your place. If you want a downside, that would only be that it is a 45-60 Euro cab ride from Venice. Other than that, perfect place to stay.

Great stopover, handy for VenicePosted Aug 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
Villa Franceschi is in a great location if you are travelling with a car and aren't bothered about staying actually in Venice. It is about ten minutes drive from the nearest ferry stop, which is easy to find and has a handy car park next to it. What better way to arrive in Venice than by boat, anyway? The Villa itself is fab, beautiful and beautifully maintained! It is spotless, (most important!) and tastefully decorated, with cool and relaxing public areas to sit. We had a family room, with a mezzanine area for the kids - their own private sofa bed and tv. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good, especially the fresh fruit salad and you can sit on the terrace and enjoy the peaceful gardens. We were there in a heatwave and the only thing missing was a pool!

Great place, personal attention, wonderful estate. Make sure you upgrade your room in order to enjoy the best of Villa Franceschi.

Beautiful, Elegant, Peaceful & SpecialPosted Jul 29, 2011
Traveling through Venice to Tel Aviv, from the States, wanted to take one night to adjust to time zone and jet lag but didn't want an "airport hotel" or the hassle of Venice (crowds, water taxis etc). The cab ride from the airport was an easy 20 minutes, aprox 60 Euros. We arrived jet lagged and rumpled, the birds were singing, beautiful gardens, a true Villa in every sense of the word, the room was unique - like a step back in time. We were welcomed like old friends, the atmosphere absolutely tranquil. Even though an easy bus stop away from Venice we decided to stay at the Villa for dinner, lovely restaurant - attention to detail like the Murano glassware, food excellent, service friendly yet deferential at the same time (hard to pull off!). Loved it so much we canceled Venice hotel on return before cruise and stayed again AHHH. After cruise we stayed on the Lido.. nice but not the Villa Franceschi, should have gone back a third time. Ok, so, one "opportunity for improvement"- two different awesome rooms, both could use a better mattress. Overall, just lovely- do yourself a favor and avoid the stress of staying in the heart of Venice- take a breath of country air , get away from the tourists for awhile!

Not really a 5 star hotel, but certainly 5 star service!Posted Nov 11, 2010
The reservation made me nervous because in the past we would always pay in advance to secure our room with the rate that was advertised. Sure enough, when we got there the room was not the rate advertised but much more. Then, they advertised free airport shuttle. No such thing, in fact it cost about 60euros one way and 60euros way back. That said, everything else was divine. The daily free breakfast was yummy, the conceige were EXTREMELY HELPFUL, the room was tidy and beautiful. The neighborhood was charming and not far from the bus stop. Just a 7min walk then 11euros to get into Venice for 2 all day pass. Not bad. The restaurant next door has the BEST TIRAMUSU ...and I don't like tiramusu, but that one was the BOMB!

Can't wait to go back.Posted Aug 4, 2010
This hotel was wonderful. Smartly dressed friendly and helpful staff greeted us at the door when we arrived. The hotel is surrounded by its own immaculately kept gardens and the decor inside was really lovely, traditional and well maintained. Our room was very comfortable with good air conditioning and with a complimentary bowl of fresh fruit. The hotel is about 10 minutes by car to the boat terminal which takes you a quick boat ride to the historic city of Venice. All in all we would thoroughly recommend this hotel - it offers extremely good value for money and we would definitely go back again.
