The Venissa Wine Resort, located on the island of Mazzorbo in the Venetian Lagoon a mere 40 minutes by ferry from Venice, offers an abundance of options for travelers looking for a unique and entirely off-the-beaten-track experience. The estate's charming 6-room guesthouse is the epitome of laid-back, minimalist elegance. Located on the bottom floor of the guesthouse is a casual osteria serving delicious local fare, while across the grounds is Venissa's Michelin-starred fine-dining restaurant, which has become a sought-after destination for local and international foodies thanks to the chefs' creative, innovative take on the hyper-local ingredients used in their dishes, many of which come from the estate's beautiful heirloom garden. There is also a fascinating walled vineyard on the property: in fact, Venissa is best known for the white wine it produces from the Dorona varietal, native to the Venetian Lagoon but long forgotten until Gianluca Bisol, Venissa's owner, discovered and planted an abandoned vine on Mazzorbo nearly fifteen years ago. In addition to tours of the vineyard and guided wine tastings, visitors to Venissa have the rare opportunity to completely immerse themselves into Venetian Lagoon culture by way of boating excursions, rowing lessons with the Rowing Club of Burano, photography exhibitions, and private tours of largely undiscovered sites on the most ancient islands of the Venetian Lagoon.

We had a lovely time here, the rooms are clean and cosy and the staff very nice. BUT we would suggest that guests need a bit more information about the area, travel etc and in particular, to be informed that NOTHING is open in the local area past about 6pm in February. No

An amazing varietal of grape once thought extinct but now growing on this Wine Resort's small property near Venice. This wine is Amber colored with flecks of gold when held up to the light, but close your eyes while tasting and prepare to be amazed as the deep, rich flavor

You choose the reprotection at our Casa Burano,10 minutes walking distance from Venissa, with the same Venissa philosophy where we assigned a junior suite overlooking the main Square of Burano and the colorful houses, one of those is the bank. We did explain clearly the situation prior to arrival, giving you also an upgrade and a discounted rate at the osteria. Casa burano has been refurbished last year, the architect used italian design object, we always receive many positive comments from the guests enjoying the design and the mood. I think that It is a question of taste. we are sorry to hearing that you did not have the experience you wish, maybe disappointed of not being at Venissa, But still because we wish to have our guests happy, we are glad to extend a voucher on your behalf for a future stay and in this connection please refer to our answer sent to you through expedia. we apologize once again, please feel free to contact us directly hm@venissa.it Our personal regards, Resident manager Venissa - Casa Burano

Was a guest there, water taxi takes probably about 30 minutes, but you may reach the Mazzorbo Island also with Vaporetto Water taxi from Venice. Enjoy

Hi, Fiumicino Airport is in Rome, so you should get the Frecci Argento train to Venice (3h 20min), from the train station than you should take Vaporetto 4.2 or 5.2 to Fondamente Nove (20min) and from there (pontile A) take the 12 to Mazzorbo (35 min second stop). There are 2 vaporetto every hour. Otherwise you can take a watertaxi from the train station to Venissa (120€, 25min)

"You may be woken by loud conversations early in the morning (staff arriving?) if you have a front room, but didn't really bother us."
"Must have a meal in the on-site restaurant. Wine pairings are exceptional."
"Suites at the top are brilliant - in the eaves but unless you're 7ft plus, you won't have a problem."
"stay elsewhere"
