Changes for Locanda O in Venice

Jump to last reply

I got a message from Igor at FB about some very bad news for the Locanda and its fans. Apparently the bureaucracy and corruption described in Donna Leon's (fictional) books among other sources have hit the Locanda and the family owners and associates.

Though they purchased in good faith, some previous owners may perhaps have skimped on the paperwork, and the Locanda is apparently having to make substantial changes such as closing off the utterly lovely breakfast room (with the canal-side window!) and sitting area.

I suppose it's possible that Barbara and Matteo are wiley and well connected enough to pull off a reprieve, but it's definitely worth checking ahead if you are planning to stay. I think they already had to close off 3 rooms due to supposed irregularities in the paperwork etc. All very sad. Memories of my stays there keep me going all year long.
