We offer for rental  furnished flats of  40 and 50 square metres, standing free and of highest Italian standard with one or two double bedrooms, living-kitchen. They are equipped with full modern kitchen, bathroom with cabin shower and even bidè.  Everything is included in the rent: electricity, gas, hot and cold water, refrigerator with freezing box, TV, kitchen tools, plates and everything you need in a kitchen. The cocker is a modern gas cocker. Complete bed linen, bath and kitchen towels are included on the given price, washing machine can be rented with us for a small fee. Please remember that we do not supply  personal, sanity and consumptions articles! Our property is situated in the centre of the town and has belonged to our family since 1920. The building is totally restored and includes now apartments for tourists and also a Bed & Breakfast. The prices are low compared with similar apartments or rooms you can rent in Italy. The apartment is for rental by the week from Saturday to Saturday and of course you may stay as long as you please. Just tell us how long you want to stay when you book the apartment. We have private Parking places for our clients inside our property closed at night on request. Free of charge! There are several food shops, two bakeries, several bars and pizzerias in Fossalta (6000 inhabitants), situated within a short distance. A few kilometres from here you can find a couple of exquisite, internationally known restaurants. There is a Post Office and two Banks just a hundred meters from the apartment. If you want to buy Italian souvenirs to bring home there is also a huge  iperstore (Carrefour) in Portogruaro where you can find everything you may want included. In the evening when you come home from the beach perhaps you want to relax. Then you can lay the table in our garden  and enjoy food and wine in the pleasant clima and peaceful environment. Do you want to play tennis? Bring your racket and tennis shoes. You can play in the local tennis club where I am a member. In the autumn,  August-September, you can take part in the wine harvest with our peasant friends or make a wine tasting trip around the many “cantinas” of our territory. Did you get problems with your car? Massimo’s garage will take care of it at once for reasonable prices. If you feel sick one day (we don’t want that, do we?) our family doctor will arrive as soon as possible. There is a pharmacy quite near the apartments. It takes 15 minutes by car to get to our natural sand beach by the Adriatic sea and you may be there free of charge. The Beach “Valle Vecchia”-Brussa (Bibione-Caorle) has very fine-grain sand and it is several miles long. The beach is a nature reservation and it is State owned. It is cleaned out every year by local “rangers” and “Alpini” (alp-hunters) and you do not have to pay to use it. There is no risk that you get tread down, the beach is quiet and peaceful. There are many famous cities not far away from us, for ex. Venice 40 minutes by train. In two hours you can easily and comfortably reach cities like Verona with its magnificent arena (Colosseum) where they give plays with living horses, elephants etc. You can also look at the house where the Shakespearian drama about Romeo and Juliet is said to have taken place. In Marostica you can see chess being played with living pieces on the central square. In Ravenna you can feel the atmosphere where Dante Alighieri wrote his Divina Commedia. Trieste “bellissima”, the Italian gateway to the Orient, and the old site of the Habsburg Monarchy can easily be reached (60 minutes by train). A car trip of 25 minutes will take you to Aquileia which is a very interesting city of ruins from the Roman time and always a source of new discoveries. There is so much worth seeing! The list could be endless. There is a lot of experiences waiting for those who have desire and strength to discover new things and places. One of the local sights is Count Mocenigo’s Venetian villa with its park (protected by WWF) and its recently restored chapel in Alvisopoli (1 kilometer from Fossalta). The castle is one of the most interesting buildings you can see. In count Mocenigo’s big garden they give concerts and comedies throughout the summer. The performances are much appreciated by the audien­ce and critics. We also have a very fine library in Fossalta, named after our great author Ippolito Nievo. As in so many Italian towns we have annual festivals with local elements, appreciated by the local population and quite an experience for tourists. If it rains one day you can go shopping to Portogruaro in the refine shops under the vaults. Portogruaro Centro Storico – the old town, was built in the 14th century and is quite as stylish as Venice. There are many restaurants here. You can afford to take the family out for an extravagant dinner if you don’t feel like cooking yourself. You will get all this and much more when you stay as a guest with us in Italy. If you are a group of people  we can discuss different solutions. You can rent the apartment through the whole year. The climate in Italy is mild not only in June, July and August but April-May and September-October are very fine months with agreeable temperature and wonderful sunny days.
