A breathtaking private island in the heart of the Venetian Lagoon, very close to Sant'Erasmo as well as to Burano, Mazzorbo and Torcello.

A fully restored Napoleonic fort stands guard over this island, surrounded by wonderfully well-tended garden and looking out onto the Venetian lagoon. Boasting four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a large living room, the property is just 20 minutes’ boat ride from the bustle of Venice and a further 25 minutes away from the city’s airport.  

Originally a Napoleonic Fort, in 1866 the island became part of the Kingdom of Italy before later being sold to private owners, who restored the fort into a delightful villa with separate caretaker’s apartment. The main residence sprawls over 170 m² and retains many of its original features.  

The property is truly something very special. Offering exquisite privacy without feeling isolated, the island is home to its own sheltered harbor and mooring facilities, meaning you can swap idyllic island life for the bright lights of the city in no time at all. Air-conditioned, with a large living-room, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a functioning kitchen and more, this Venetian island fort is very much something to fall in love with.
