What about camping? I'm just back from here and I went on my own with my 2 children (5 and 6). It's very easy to do - buses direct from airport (Marco POlo) to bus stop right outside campsite for about 3.5 euros- they help with luggage and everything or you can book a taxi transfer for about 80 euros (www.daytransfer.it). The campsite has 4 pools - 1 is fab for a toddler and it's a short 5 min walk to the beach or local town. Supermarket on site. Direct buses to venice, Lido de Jesolo and Caorle. I wasn't only single mum there and rep said there had been quite a few ovber the summer as it's such an easy site. I went with canvas lIfe and they are now selling all their 2008 hols half price! She will need to pay for 2 adults - they work it that you pay for 2 adults but all kids go free but it should still be pretty cheap. She'd need to pay for flights to but LO would be free.
