For many travelers, Venice is one of the most interesting and charming places in the world. The city is based on more than 100 little islands in a tidal pond in the Adriatic Sea and has its own place in the European history books as one of the ruling cities, until 1797 when Napoleon put an end to the thousand year-old Republic.
Just a short ride away from Venice is the island of Burano, also known as the island of colors within the Venetian Laguna. Burano is known as the island of colors due to its multi-colored homes which makes every street seem like a land of colors.
The island’s homes were painted in colors so the fisherman could see their houses in thick fog. The island is also legendary for the art of handicraft. The colored island of lace is the home of great artists. A trip to the island of Burano can make your stay in Venice even more spectacular. Our favorite location in Burano is the wine resort Venissa.
Lodging in Venissa is the most wonderful place to stay as it is encompassed by vast farm and garden. It is set in an old manor house on Mazzorbo Island, attached by a causeway to Burano Island with its candy-colored houses, just 35 minutes by vaporetto from the city of Venice.
Hotel Venissa gives you stunning gourmet stay in a wine resort. It is a resort devoted to sentimental couples, wine connoisseurs and individuals looking for peace. The aerating and cooling rooms fills your heart with joy. The Venetian wine is prepared with the planted vineyard directly in Mazzorbo.
Inside the walled vineyard of Venissa, you are just steps away from green vines and the waters of the Venetian Lagoon. In the public rooms you can find interesting pieces of antique Venetian furniture set in modernist design. Downstairs there is a cool lounge and wine bar. In the meantime you can appreciate the tranquility of six room lodging with all facilities.
Venissa is a paradise for food and wine lovers. In the morning you’ll wake up to the special Venissa breakfast and complete the day with dinner at the Michelin-starred Ristorante or the more casual Osteria Contemporanea.
Diverse cooks translate the remarkable elements of the tidal pond as indicated by their own sensibilities and encounters. You can feel the essence of top notch fish and seafood together with incredible seasonal vegetables that are generally developed in Venissa’s own natural organic garden. They prepare foods with their own planted vegetable gardens and orchards which are located on their property.
