A house in the middle of a natural park, just on a river and in the depth of the nature it’s like a dream come true. Get away from everything and spend relaxing days in the lovely Maranghetto Mansion, near the beach of Caorle / Brussa. Here what Toni and Marzia told us.
A private place and cosy place, in the middle of the wild life of the Venice lagoon, where you can see many wild animal species and explore around thanks to the cycle path nearby. Maranghetto Mansion it’s a house on the river structured with the cane from the swamp that is kept as it used to be once. With ancient features. Inside the house there are exposed all the pictures from the past of the house on the river and of the people of the community, most fishermen. To this day, the fishermen still hang around this area, keeping each other company while fishing. They are simple people with an open mind, that host gladly outsiders and with very interesting stories to tell.
We’ve interviewed the kind homeowners, Toni and Marzia, that charmed us thanks to their enthusiasm toward this special and antique place.
