If you are looking for a place with no frills, rustic charm, and a communal vibe away from the city, then Maurizio's farm location is probably a good place for you.
I will preface the rest of this review by saying that is mixed feedback ... because the accommodations were not what I was expecting, but not totally horrible.
Initially, I requested closer in, more urban-looking accommodations that were also listed by Maurizio. Unfortunately, the request was declined, but space in a "country house" was offered as consolation. Anxious to get settled after just landing in Venice and with no other feasible options at the time, I reluctantly accepted the offer for the alternative location ... with limited details and no reference photos. I'm always up for an adventure, so went with the flow, especially since pick-up from the airport for 10 euros was offered, which was a helpful convenience due to my limited pre-planning.
On the way to the accommodations, Maurizio was very helpful to identify turns for navigating on own. He also stopped at a bodega, which ended up being down the road from the accommodations, before arriving at our final destination. To my surprise, the "country house" seemed more like a country hostel. On a mission to make the most of the situation, I proceeded to reception and confirmed that a private room and bathroom with shared kitchen was available and got settled for a two day minimum required stay.
The highlight of the stay was free use of bicycles with a 10 euro deposit (held until returned) for a lock. The bike came in handy for quicker access to the bus stop, which I understood would be closer, but ended up being a 15-20 minute walk away on a partially lit path. And, proximity to the city was further away than I expected, too ... two buses later for total travel time of about an hour.
Also be wary of various creatures and critters lurking around, some friendly (like the cute little pony in the yard) and some not so friendly (like the mosquitoes that had a field day on my arms and legs).
All in all, Maurizio was a helpful host for an unexpected rural adventure. Under different circumstances and with better preparation, I would consider Maurizio's place again. But, this time around, I would've preferred more modern accommodations.
Pros: Free bike use, shuttle service upon request, access to fresh vegetables to cook, price, relaxed and communal
Cons: Proximity to public transportation and the city, questionable cleanliness (found a stain on one of my towels), smoking environment (although not in the individual rooms), spotty wi-fi, limited outlets/no option for international converter
