Surrounded by the green of the vegetation and the blue of the sea, Villa Laguna is immersed in a fabulous microcosm, facing two of the ca. 30 fish farms of Venice. In this quiet landscape you can only hear the call of the royal swan, of the cormorant, the heron, the seagull and the pink flamingo, which peep out from reeds, bulrushes and tamarisks.
While you reach the Villa from the land or from the sea it seems as if you were in a painting from Canaletto: the sunset amber light which lingers on the still water and the sight embracing Burano and Sant’Erasmo, reveal all the magic of an unusual Venice, far from the noise and the opulence.
Walking along the bank you pass by little lakes equipped for the extensive fish breeding, that is for free fish breeding. Near the main sluice gate there are the “lavorieri”, that is basins crossed by the fish, following a kind of obliged route, the fish farm “cason”, that is the dwelling of fishermen, the cabin for the fish cleaning and the “cavana” that is the shelter for boats and fish tools.
In any season of the year you can assist to a different activity going on in the Villa Laguna, this ancient fish farm “cason” luxuriously restored. 120 hectares of property in the lagoon surround the Villa and create the perfect scenery for suggestive cycling routes, endless walks among the silence of the sea or hunting in the autumnal fog.
