At a Glance

This rustic, basic charmer is located on the island of Mazzorbo, near Burano, making guests feel utterly transformed into a Venice native.


Independent-minded travelers looking for value and authenticity will love Venissa, a small B&B located on the island of Mazzorbo, close to Burano. They can also feel good about staying here and supporting a local project designed to celebrate Venice’s lagoon and nature. The Bisol family who spearheads this unique concept is committed to a light touch in a fragile setting, running the estate that includes a six-guestroom ostello, an acclaimed restaurant and a vineyard and vegetable garden. The rooms are basic, with exposed ceiling beams and colorful fabrics and throws. The most spacious, Certosa and Burano, have lovely views of the lagoon and vineyard. The restaurant is a great spot for lunch when touring the nearby islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello, and guests of the hotel can relax into dinner, featuring an often-changing menu of regional specialties. Venissa also makes its own wine.
