Set in the deep green waters of the Mediterranean is an idyllic Venetian island retreat offering panoramic waterfront views and sunsets that will take your breath away. This property is a one-of-a-kind vacation escape in one of the most desirable locations in Italy, offering both historic allure and modern convenience. For those living in Los Altos Hills or Atherton, there is no place better to relax and unwind than your own private Italian island.
Originally home to one of Napoleon’s many war forts, the island became part of the Kingdom of Italy in 1866. Eventually, the island was sold to private owners who renovated the fort and grounds all while maintaining the architectural and historic integrity. The brick fort is now a 1,829 square foot villa that includes 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, a modern kitchen and spacious living area. The lush Italian gardens offer shaded outdoor eating and entertaining areas, serene pathways with gorgeous views, a sheltered harbor, pier and a private waterway to moor boats.
The island is centrally located in the crescent-shaped Laguna Venta, or the Venetian Lagoon, one of the most ecologically diverse bodies of water in the Mediterranean. Near Sant’Erasmo, Burano, Mazzorbo, and Torcello and just a 20-minute boat ride from all the beauty, architecture, romance and culture of Venice, this secluded island provides the perfect blend of proximity and peace.
If you’re looking for a vacation retreat that offers luxury lifestyle, this serene isle near Venice is up for sale. Price upon request.
