About Alessandro Sisto
Hallo! My name is Alessandro Sisto. I worked as a scientist in a pharmaceutical company for forty years and now I am retired. I deal in first person the contact management with guests. My main interests are cinema (my wife and I did not lose every year the Venice Film Festival in Venice) gardening (especially the vegetable garden), reading (books about detective) and my three cats.
Alessandro Sisto purchased this Apartment in 1830
Why Alessandro Sisto chose Mira
My family owns from the middle of 1800 Villa Pastori, a typical example of venetian Villa built in the 1780. Now it is rather difficult to maintain the Villa taking into account property taxes, maintenance costs and need of restoration. We then decided to share a part of the Villa (the old warehouses, storage of carriages, the cellar ...) transforming the Barchessa side into three apartments. From the rentals it derives the necessary for the maintenance of the villa, which we could not otherwise bear.

a nice experience in Venice
a beautiful historic villa. Very quit and relaxing. Simonetta really friendly and helps you all the time.
Charming rental in beautiful setting
Charming rural setting with good location for day trips in the Venice area and for a very good price. Simonetta was gracious and extremely helpful.
FYI if you have cat allergies there are cats on the property. As stated in pevious reviews the internet speed is basic.
Quiet, family friendly
This apartment was perfect for us. We wanted a place that was fairly close to the Marco Polo airport but in a quiet neighborhood. We rented a car and this place was only 20 min. from the airport. We were easily able to tour Venice, Padova, Bologna and many other places from here. The caretaker Simonetta, who lives in the adjoining villa, was very sweet and helpful. The only thing that was a bit irritating was being charged an extra 20 euro after I told the landlord, two weeks before we arrived, that we would be 10-30 min late due to our flight time.
Great family accomodation
The property was well presented and clean and the supplies of pasta and sauce were greatly appreciated. We were a family of five with 3 teenagers and the only suggestion we can make it that the internet connection was poor and this could be improved as we all rely heavily on having access to the internet. The location is close to a well stocked supermarket and it was very easy to access the train into Venice. We all enjoyed our time at this historic building
Very charming property
I loved the whole feel of this place. From the old buildings to the wide open spaces for my kids to run around in. The pictures are true to form to what you get. My husband and I stayed here with our 4 kids and it fit us all perfectly. Easy train ride into Venice from the Mira station. Highly recommended.
Thank you very much for coming at Villa Pastori. We are a family owned business and we try our best to satisfy our guests. All of our guests with their stay contribute to the renovation of the main building of the Villa.
Thank you very much for your feedback, I'm really glad to hosted you. You will be always welcome!
Magnolia Apartment , Villa Pastori. Mira Italy
This is a fantastic property full of character. It was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Bed linen and towels provided which afforded much needed luggage space. Ideally located, walking distance to supermarket, restaurants and bus stop from which you can get the bus into Venice. We were greeted by the owner's representative who gave us lots of information and made us feel very welcome.I would thoroughly recomend this property to anyone wishing to explore Venice and the Veneto area.
ideal starting point to visit by bike the many Venetian villas in the district, built from the 1500, as the Palladian Villa "La Malcontenta", to the 1700, as Villa Pisani at Stra, with its wonderful park and the green labyrinth. Venice and Padua is 20 km away, easily reached by train or by bus.
