Venice, Italy · Villa - Torcello Island · 6 Bedrooms · 12 people

This fabulous and unique rent property, dating from the late 17th Century, is the only villa on the island of Torcello. The real precursor of Venice, Torcello was originally settled between the 5th and 7th Centuries, becoming the most prosperous of the early lagoon communities with its own palaces, churches, shipyards and docks, its own nobility and laws. The growth of Venice brought about its demise and its current population is only about 100 people. It is probably most famous now for the Locanda Cipriani, one of the gastronomic institutions of the Veneto.

San Giovanni takes its name from the Romanesque church of San Giovanni, some of whose ruins have been restored by the International Save Venice Fund, and which can still be admired in the enormous garden surrounding the villa. The interior of the rent villa was also restored a few years ago and the rooms are beautifully furnished with antiques. Amenities include central heating and a barbeque.

There is a swimming pool (14 x 7m) within the grounds, on a small hill overlooking the garden. From villa Torcello it is possible to visit, either by vaporetto or by water taxi, the islands of the Venetian lagoon, including Burano, famous for its lace, and Murano, famous for its glass. The centre of Venice can also be reached easily by vaporetto. The vaporetto stop is only a five minute walk from the villa. A boat is also available to transfer guests up to 5 p.m.
