An exquisite luxury private island retreat, exclusive, serene and surrounded by water yet only 30 minutes from the romance of Venice. Escape... to your very own private island to relax and forget time. Imagine... relaxing to the sound of the waves, observing the freedom of the birds that fly high, and chasing the scent of the silently growing, well-tended vineyard that passes you by. Imagine waking up on your very own island, breathing in the fresh air and tiptoeing silently through the morning dew...



For some a good book will do, for others, yoga or meditation sets the mood. Imagine days by the pool, nights of laughter, with not a stranger in sight. With no other guest on the island - not a single soul as far as the eye can see - there’s nothing to disturb your path to inner peace. All you have to do is bring family and friends. Unseen, unheard, undisturbed... this ‘not so remote with a boat’ island is only as distant as you want it to be. Hidden away in the Venetian Lagoon between the city of Venice and the Adriatic Sea, its sleek skippered boat is at your disposal to whisk you away to the glories of Venice, or carry you with ease to wherever you please.



The Villa

The large and historical Italian villa recently renovated to achieve a refined and luxurious simplicity, is set within gardens and grounds, beautifully established over centuries. A world away from everyday life, a place where peacocks wander the lawn, fish thrive in its waters, and pheasants roam the apricot orchard and organic vineyard, this island retreat offers nature, tranquillity, and privacy to relax and revitalise mind, body, and soul. While Venice and the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello are but a short boat ride away, it’s tempting to stay amidst the beauty and peace to bask in the sunshine and unwind by the pool. A sophisticated sanctuary for up to 16 guests, the air-conditioned blush pink villa is connected to the outside world by WIFI, should you wish to keep in touch, while its impressive accommodation is stylishly designed and elegantly appointed to make you feel right at home.

One enters the villa via a spacious furnished terrace, which has a large open fireplace and is ideal for entertaining on balmy summer nights, into a gorgeous light-filled sitting room with access to an art deco style library. The original Venetian kitchen is fully equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and lies just opposite the grand dining hall seating 16 guests.


There are 9 tasteful bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom - 2 masters, 5 doubles and 2 singles - and crowning this truly one-of-a-kind property, a spectacular traditional ‘altana’ rooftop terrace offering a sublime and unforgettable panorama of the surrounding Venetian Lagoon.
