Property Description

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 in now about 100 people. It is probably most famous today for the Locanda Cipriani, one of the gastronomic institutions of the Beneto. "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 was completely restored a few years ago and it is beautifully furnished with antiques. The swimming pool is on a small hill overlooking the garden. A small boat, with driver, is at the clients' disposal from 9am until 7pm for trips to many of the nearby islands. These include Burano, famous for its lace, and Murano, famous for its glass, as well as many others. Venice can also be reached by vaporetto or taxi, or by your own boat, subject to the driver's other duties. Central Venice can be reached by vaporetto or water taxi.

Access to the property is by water taxi or vaporetto (5-minute walk to the stop from the villa). Burano is the next closest island (5 mins), then Murano (10 mins) - famous for the glass and Venice is 10kms (40mins)
