Property description

The Papa Hemingway cottage is a warm, masculine one-of-a-kind beach bungalow, originally built in 1922 and renovated from the ground up in 2007 in a completely sustainable, earth-friendly manner.

Everything is eco-friendly – from the purified water to the organic mattresses, linens and non-toxic cleaning products used every day.
This solar powered urban retreat is carbon neutral.

Experience Venice like a local … surrounded by art and antiques in a restorative eco-friendly environment.

There are two other lovely cottages on the premise too. Check out
