During a 2-week trip to Italy in May 2016, I spent my final nights at the little Agriturismo Ca’ Beatrice (Via Triestina, 99/A, 30173 Favaro, Veneto, Italy; phone +39 041 635 322, www.agriturismocabeatrice.it), located in the Veneto region.

I had booked it again (see Dec. ’14, pg. 31) partly for its proximity to the Venice Marco Polo Airport, as I had a 6:30 a.m. flight out. 

Even though, when wanting to reach Venice proper, it was a bit of a time-waster to have to take a public bus to Piazzale Roma, I easily could have stayed longer than three nights at this agriturismo, where they generously allowed this repeat guest to pay 95 (near $102) per night for a double room (including breakfast and tax), though I was a single.

For my big meal of the day, about 1:30 p.m., I adored eating at their Trattoria da Olindo (Via Triestina, 99, Favaro; phone +39 041 635 322). Couples sat at 4- or 6-person tables. I also saw large Italian families celebrating special occasions. I was the only foreigner. 

Da Olindo is noted for its grilled/spit-roasted chicken, beef and pork. A homemade pasta dish cost 10 ($11); a grilled-pork tenderloin with riced potatoes (translated as “with balsamic vinegar on potato pie”!) cost 18, and lamb chops, 16. 

Another day, I had a wonderful arugula salad with prawns for 9.
