This modern B&B is set in an apartment in an 18th-century building, and has stylish green painted walls and décor that pays homage to both its name and the waters of the Venetian lagoon.
Warm and friendly Margherita runs the place along with her sister-in-law Luana, and will happily share her Venice must-dos with guests. Breakfast is a buffet with cereal, fresh fruit, eggs, bread, muffins and brioche from the local bakery, served in the breakfast room or outside on a little terrace. A few steps lead from here to a rooftop terrace with 360-degree views – the views of the sunset over St Mark’s and the Doge’s Palace are magical.
You’re a stone’s throw from St Mark’s Basilica, the National Archaeological Museum, Palazzo Ducale and the Bridge of Sighs. There are great restaurants on your doorstep: Osteria Sepa in Calle della Bissa, a 10-minute walk away, has excellent cicchetti, or small plates; for an out of this world food experience try the Michelin-starred Venissa near the island of Burano.
