Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12

Torcello is the real precursor of Venice. Settled between the fifth and seventh centuries, it became the most prosperous of the early lagoon communities with its own palaces and churches, shipyards and docks, its own nobility and laws. The growth of Venice brought its demise and its current population is now about 100 people. It is probably most famous today for the Locanda Cipriani, one of the gastronomic institutions of the Veneto. San Giovanni, built towards the end of the seventeenth century, is the only villa on Torcello and is surrounded by an enormous garden. The property 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 garden. The villa is beautifully furnished with antiques and equipped with modern comforts such as internet connection (wi-fi) and Sky TV. The swimming pool is on a small hill overlooking the garden. From Torcello it is possible to visit either by vaporetto or by water taxi the islands of the Venetian lagoon, including Burano, which is famous for its lace, and Murano, which is 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.
