Gourmet getaways are made in the shade of the vineyards at Venissa, which offers some of the lagoon’s finest, freshest dining as well as six Scandinavian-chic rooms under the farmhouse rafters. Breakfast – if that's what you can call the lavish gourmet affair – is extra, either prix fixe (€15) or à la carte.

Pre-book for cookery classes with world-class chefs, crab fishing with Burano fishers or photography and rowing outings.

In 2016, Venissa opened a handful of fishers' cottages on Burano (€250 to €350).
