The wagoon is basic but with a real double bed and eletric power. It is a simple but cool experience, You will have your indipendent nest with common camping bathrooms. You will have also the possibility to store your food in our refrigiretors and to cook in on of our camp kitchens. And in summer time a beautiful pool will refresh you. Many tours and many night events are avaiable, so better to stop more days to know better our region and our activities! Bus stop nearby and free bikes

The space

We used recycled wood and a old farm wagon to get this nice "Conestoga carriage". Absolutely in the nature. If you appreciate the camping life, here you will have the confort of a perfect bed and electric plugs. You will hear all the nightgales and other birds all the days long. But you have not to be too much afraid of ants . Just outside, toilets and a swimming pool. You can use our kitchens too.
In summertime we organize a lot of cultural events and many artists are passing by here. Venice is close, at only 1 km there is the bus stop and you will reach the historical center in 20 minutes. In the same place there is also a supermarket (you can have free bikes).
We sail also boat tours to the fantastic islands of Torcello and Burano in the north lagoon and also excursions at the art historical cities as Padua (Unesco Heritage), Treviso, and the romantic middle age village Asolo and Bassano.
From airports or train station possibility of courtesy shuttle.

It is just one bus from Mestre station so not difficult to get to and the countryside was a really nice break from the hectic tourism of the city. The wagon is not your usual caravan - it was cosy, well-equipped and stocked with coffee and good appliances. But the best thing about the place was the people who worked there. Maurizio and Mohammad were extremely kind and open people, preparing amazing homegrown meals for us, leaving bicycles for us to use. Thanks to Maurizio we even had a magical trip to the mountains, the best day of the trip- as my boyfriend discovered some of his family heritage! If you are interested in getting to know local people, practising some Italian and exploring beautiful countryside then I thoroughly recommend to you. Grazie per tutte Maurizio e ci vidiamo nel futuro! ” june 2016

I loved the campground. I was made to feel right at home. Everyone on the grounds were friendly, even the animals. I bought a Raid plug for the bugs which was a delight, but I can only imagine what it would be like without any defense against bugs.

Quiet little place, tucked out of the way.

Me and a friend stayed here for 3 nights. There are good points and bad points to this accommodation. The good points: We booked 10 days in advance, so it was a cheap option where other options were limited near Venice. It's a quiet area and is definitely an interesting experience compared to a hotel room etc. The main guy we spoke to was nice and he picked us up and told us lots of interesting facts about the area. The bad points: As an English girl living in a cold country I'd never realised I'm allergic to mosquitos. They were relentless and I dreaded going back to the wagon every night. I ended up with about 20-30 massive bites. The man offered up a mosquito repellent on the last night but it should've been available automatically cause they're so bad around there. The other men working at the place were rude and made no effort to even try and communicate with us. The check in was unprofessional and whoever they were they were smoking in our faces and it was just uncomfortable. It takes about an hour or more to get into Venice. It's a 1.3km walk from the wagon to the bus, where you get 2 buses that take around 40 minutes altogether. It's not near Venice really. It didn't bother us too much but just so everyone is aware. It was incredibly hot in the wagon, and the fan provided to us was broken. Also no wifi there but that was expected. It was a lot smaller than we expected as a whole site and seems like most of the people there live there somehow so it was a little uncomfortable. Don't even think of using the kitchen provided, not worth it. We ate out for every meal so consider that cost. I don't recommend this accommodation if you're even slightly more than low maintenance. We definitely were glad to leave. If you're looking for a cheap accommodation close(ish) to Venice and like the rustic feel then this is for you. It just didn't work for us.

We did not enjoy our experience in the wagon. We expected a relaxing experience in a beautiful natural environment with kind hosts but we only really experienced problems. First, a few positives: 1) The remote location was quiet so we slept well. 2) Other travellers staying at the wagon were very friendly and so we are glad to have met them. 3) The beer provided was cheap. 4) Wifi in the communal area was fine. Now for the negatives: 1) The location is awful and does not match the listing. On the listing it is described as convenient to travel into Venice. This couldn't be further from the truth. It is a 20-30 minute walk to a bus stop and from there 2 busses to get into Venice centre. In total, it took about 60-80 minutes to get into Venice. 2) Our host was not friendly. We arrived later than we hoped, tired and stressed due to incoherent and incorrect directions and having to walk well over 2 miles in baking heat, so we hoped our host would be friendly. When we arrived, people stared at us as though we were intruders- no one introduced themselves or welcomed us in. We immediately felt uncomfortable. When we finally met the man who checked us in, he was one of the rudest men I have ever met. He barely spoke a word to us, stabbing his finger at the forms we had to fill in while he drank a glass of wine and smoked in our faces. He appeared grumpy and did not smile or welcome us once. He didn't even show us our wagon, just dismissed us and went back to his paper. Had we not already paid, we would have left. Later on, when we requested the free shuttle to the bus station, we were stared at with incredulity and our host reluctantly drove us the nearly 2 km to the bus stop. 3) The wagon itself was a good size and relatively tidy but the insect nets were redundant. The nets had holes in and were torn. Unfortunately we later suffered about 20 bites each, which made our stay very uncomfortable and made sleeping difficult. 4) The wagon, staff and location made the price bad value for money. We essentially paid £64 to stay in a glorified tent in the middle of nowhere with rude people. We are so surprised at the positive reviews on here, maybe it has since gone down hill but I really would not suggest to any of my friends to stay here. AVOID!

A very nice place to stay. Sometimes disorganised but overall the hosts are friendly and helpful

Honestly the best holiday I've ever been on! Maurizio and Mohammed were very welcoming and offered a range of amazing outings to the mountains, islands and into the heart of Venice. Italy was stunning and on the farm I felt like we were really having an authentic rustic experience. Our wagon was cosy and the pool was a great addition. The only two issues would be bug bites and the distance from the farm from central Venice (which is only an issue if you're going in alone for the first time). I would thoroughly recommend the farm. We met lovely people and had an amazing time!

Maurizio and his accommodation was great. He picked us up from the airport which was very helpful and he was usually around to help us out around the farm. The place was clean and well kept and very hospitable. It takes a bus and a tram to get into Venice but it's cheap and easy. The wagon was pretty and funky.
