The Villa Michiel was built in the 17th century as a country retreat for an important Venetian family. The elegant fatade belies a surprisingly informal interior with the beamed ceilings and terracotta floors of a country home. Frescoes adorn some rooms, a lovely backdrop to antique furnishings and a contrast to the modern, well-equipped kitchen, air-conditioned bedrooms. Extensive lawns surround the house, punctuated by statues, clipped hedges and a man-made lake. A path leads through a gate and crosses a tiny stream to reach the beautiful pool, paved in marble with wide steps and amply supplied with loungers and umbrellas. Although very private, Villa Michiel lies only twenty minutes' drive from the main docks to Venice, and the market, shops and restaurants of Mirano are within easy walking distance.
Max Occupancy: 11
