This converted farmhouse in Tessera is an intimate and inexpensive stay close to Venice's Marco Polo airport. Far too pretty to be used just for stopovers, Hotel Venice Resort is a lovingly restored boutique property a kilometer from the airport. Comprising three separate houses, decor is classic country in harmony with its rural setting and modernized with deluxe bathrooms and free Wi-Fi in all rooms. The local bus to Venice departs almost at the door and takes less than 15 minutes should guests be using this hotel as a base, and the ride to the airport is less than three minutes by cab - a walkable distance for those with light luggage. Continental breakfast is served on-site, and for other meals and sundries, there are shops and restaurants a 15-minute walk away.
