Off the beaten track in the heart of the lagoon, a 45 minute boat ride northeast from Venice, is one of Laguna Veneta’s most exclusive islands and a beautiful eco friendly luxury retreat.
Isola Santa Cristina also renamed Isola Altinate, is located in one of the most pleasant areas of the lagoon, beyond Burano, the island where locals bring their boats out on the weekends. The north of a lagoon that has inspired some of the most celebrated authors and artists, the history of the island is quite fascinating: founded in the 5th century, Isola Altinate was originally part of a flourishing archipelago where Churches, convents and monasteries, were built and thrived until the middle of the 15th century when they were abandoned due to erosion.
The island of 30 hectares hosts a luxury villa available for a minimum rental of 3 nights, where to enjoy the privacy in an eco friendly environment.
The villa, accommodating up to 15 guests in eight bedrooms, is equipped with a large porch that faces the pool side, which is furnished with a fireplace, sofas and a dining table, becoming a central spot during the summer. The villa has been recently refurbished and furnished in a way that it transmits simplicity and purity. Along the three floors on which the villa is built, the floor is completely covered with natural wood. All the bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning.
The villa also has a small consecrated church, in the middle of the waterways crossing the island, which makes it an unusual and romantic place to celebrate weddings.
Isola Altinate is a place to experience the luxury of space in a well appointed villa overlooking sweeping natural views, and to tap into an inner creativity through a close connection with an unspoiled natural setting. It also is a home to thriving organic orchards and gardens lined up along vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes).
It is an amazing experience to walk along the paths that intertwine along the island, to reach the ancient little church, or to walk the ponds and then stay on one of the benches where to admire the beautiful sunset. Fishing lovers will be able to fish for sea bass and bream. Having a yoga teacher on the island is also an option, to empathize an inner balance of the body, mind and spirit: the villa boasts a beautiful yoga room for up to 20 people.
