One of several, remaining multi-cottage courts in Venice. The tiny cottages were once affordable getaways for beach vacationers. Nowadays, they’re small apartments.

This small beach cottage, nestled among juniper trees, can be reached by a ribbony wooden path, the likes of which were common in the past. Before behemoths all but replaced quaint cottages and beach homes, before lawn was installed along the beach where saw grass once grew, such paths carried inhabitants across the sandy lots.

This simple, long and low cottage, once so common in Venice, is a gradually (some might say rapidly) dying breed as more and more owners and builders seek to maximize square footage on the community’s small lots.

This old cottage could almost fit in the living rooms of the houses on either side. Size isn’t everything.
