Old-world glamour on the Grand Canal, in the heart of Venice, with breakfast and casino entrance

For old-world Venetian glamour with a modish twist, Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort is a classy little 17th-century villa on the Grand Canal that raises the bar for boutique stays. The one-time residence of Italian poet and diplomat Costantino Nigra has much to delight design-lovers, from the ultra-glossy chrome and glass reception area, to the splendid beamed and frescoed drawing room.

While the exterior wows with a deep-red facade and rather stunning walled-in waterside rose gardens, the dazzling interiors mix up traditional Venetian, Oriental, and contemporary décor. Each of the individually designed rooms are kitted out with parquet flooring, Murano glass, brocades, damask fabrics, and splashes of rich colour.

Best of all, this historic villa’s relatively small size means that the charming staff can take the time to cater to your every whim. Enjoy buffet-style breakfasts in the dining room and take afternoon cocktails on the terrace before heading off to tour the Doge’s Palace, marvel at artwork by Venetian masters or sail down one of the city's waterways in a gondola.
