Heaven on earth: Isola Santa Cristina. Rent your own private island, just a stone’s throw from Venice. Pure enjoyment, eco-luxury style.
Just over a year ago, René and Sandra Deutsch restored the private island belonging to the Swarovski family to new life by treating an exclusive eco-luxury holiday island available for rent. Nine comfortable rooms await their guests at the heart of a green oasis of calm and vitality. The island has its own fish farm and fruit and vegetable gardens, allowing guests to experience the luxury of self-subsistence. There is now also a fantastic new wine, Venusa, produced by Venissa and made from grapes grown on the island. An exclusive slow food catering service is available on Isola Santa Cristina, for guests who wish to dine like kings. Alternatively they can visit the authentic gourmet restaurants on the neighbouring island Burano. One of the island’s special highlights is a beautiful chapel, the perfect place for romantic and unforgettable weddings. Isola Santa Cristina is located 25 minutes from Venice and 45 minutes from the airport. It is not only a unique holiday paradise, but can also be booked for events, retreats, workshops, or simply for a relaxing stay to unwind with family and friends.
