A superbly elegant stay at a peaceful Art Nouveau villa on the Venice Lido seafront, including breakfast, restaurant discount or optional dinner, and one-way Murano travel
See Venice from a new perspective with a stay at the splendid Art Nouveau Villa Mabapa, peacefully positioned across the lagoon on the island of Venice Lido. Originally built as a family home around a century ago, it retains an exclusive and elegant air, with various curios, paintings and original period furniture adding a distinctly personal touch. Set behind wrought iron gates amid shady tree-filled gardens, with the lagoon glistening just in front, it’s hard to believe that the bustle of Venice’s historic centre is just a short boat ride away. Elsewhere is Villa Morea and Casa Pradel, also part of the hotel and connected by a covered passageway.
Many guests combine visits to Venice’s hotspots with relaxed days in and around the hotel. Be whisked by speedboat from the private jetty and discover the Grand Canal and lesser known waterways of this UNESCO World Heritage city, then amble down to the long expanse of sandy beach nearby, where you’ll find a reserved area for hotel guests, ideal for topping up your tan. Wander the Lido’s leafy boulevards, lined with graceful Liberty-style villas, or hop on a bicycle to explore – one of the best ways to see the island. At the end of each day, return for gourmet dining on the candlelit terrace, while marvelling at spectacular bejewelled sunsets across the water. For its many charms, Villa Mabapa has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
