Pearl of the lagoon
Owned by a family of winemakers from the Veneto, and set in a historic walled vineyard on Mazzorbo Island, Venissa has had a grape start in life. Vines still flourish today; this is one of the few places in the world where you can try the rare and ancient dorona di Venezia grape variety, rescued from the brink of oblivion by the team behind the hotel. There’s more to Venissa than liquid lures, though: a Michelin-starred restaurant run by Francesco Brutto, named Italy's best young chef in 2016 and 2017, plus five relaxed rooms that overlook the lagoon or survey the vineyard. Venice is just a 50-minute boat trip away, but you won’t hear a peep from the City of Sighs at this gaff.
