A weekend at
Venice . Italy
Everybody know Venice, but only very few also knows that in a 20 minutes ferry from Piazza San Marco you can reach a little island that has same bones and blood as Venice - houses, canals, bridges - but a completely different look.
Burano is Venice little sister, a pretty island in the northern part of the lagoon, famous for its lace-making and for its brightly-coloured fishermen’s houses.
Essentially there are no tourist attractions there and, despite “her opulent Big Sister”, Burano looks very humble and real. The colors of the houses are nothing more than the reflection of the people, all with their own unique personalities and stories.
At Casa Burano guests live side-by-side with locals. The thirteen rooms are located in many different areas of the island, nearby the old fish market, in the main piazza, and along the beautiful rainbow-colored canals. The island is still inhabited by fishermen and lace makers – a community that continues to follow the rhythms of nature; genuine, real people.
Casa Burano is that exquisite example of narrative design where details and materials perfectly reflect the real soul of the surrounding environment.
The Venissa Estate
Casa Burano is only one portion of the full Bisol Family visionary project. The Venissa Estate, indeed, lies on the close by Mazzorbo Island and it’s a concept within hospitality, starred food, awarded wine and all the best of a “Very Veneto” unforgettable experience.
