- About The Experience
This exquisite, wow-experience Venice villa is not only located on one of the most cherished islands of the Venetian lagoon, Torcello, but is also the only villa there, which makes it a special place indeed. Its grand garden features a private swimming pool, a furnished terrace, and even ruins of an ancient Romanesque church. In addition, it’s a short walk to restaurants as well the vaporetto stop connecting you to Venice.
- Location Description
The property is located on the island of Torcello, just a five-minute walk from the Vaporetto (waterbus) stop that connects to the center of Venice. Torcello was built and became important in the fifth century after thousands of people fled here after their hometowns were invaded. In the center of town stands the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, featuring original mosaics from between the seventh and 11th centuries. It also features a bell tower that can be reached via a staircase of steep steps, but is worth the climb if you’d like beautiful views over the island and lagoon. Torcello is also home to restaurants. For a wider selection of restaurants as well as a market and shops, visit Burano, just five-minutes away by vaporetto. Known for its small, brightly-painted houses, Burano will make for a picturesque day trip. Murano and Venice can be reached by vaporetto as well. The best way to arrive at this property is by taking a train to Venice and then taking the Vaporetto or water taxi from there to the island of Torcello.
