When you tell your friends that you will be staying at a vineyard in Venice, they may not believe you. Isn‘t making new discoveries what traveling is all about?
Taking the road less traveled gives you a unique perspective, especially in a tourist destination like Italy!
Burano and Mazzorbo are close enough to Venice Island, yet a world of its own. Staying here will change your view of Venice!
The true magic of the Venetian Islands is best experienced by staying overnight, as only few visitors do. And that is even more true, when you opt for one of the lesser known smaller islands, such as Murano or venture even further out. We recommend to make visiting Venice at least a two night stay, too, and to come in the off season, if possible.
A magical iNSIDE EUROPE favorite for an exclusive epic sight-sleeping experience is Venissa on Mazzorbo (right next to Burano Island). Here, you can enjoy a one-of-kind retreat amidst vineyards away from the crowds and become part of everyday authentic life in the Venetian lagoon. Watch local farmers tend to their vegetable gardens, parents bring their kids to school by boat, deliveries being made waterside, etc. – all from the comforts of unique boutique hotel: Venissa Wine Resort is a perfect fit for our exclusive iNSIDE EUROPE sight-sleeping collection.
The Venissa Estate lies on Mazzorbo, one of the three islands of native Venice, an archipelago of nature, colors, flavors, and art that also includes Burano and Torcello. Venissa is the perfect example of a walled vineyard, however in a most unusual place. The wonderful staff at Venissa includes Chiara, the resort manager, who loves to tell the guests more about the story of this one-of-a-kind project by the Bisol family.
