A stylish boutique hotel in tranquil Sant'Elena, an island at the southeastern tip of Venice. The hotel is in a quiet residential street right next to the Pier Luigi Penzo stadium and the Biennale Gardens. This is a great location in the summer when central Venice can feel very crowded. Enjoy the stylish central restaurant Savor, where you can gorge on plentiful breakfasts, relax with a cocktail or sample some of the fine Venetian cuisine that gets cooked up in the kitchen by the talented young chef. On a fine day you can also relax in the inner courtyard garden, where you will feel the tranquility the nuns once felt when it was first opened as a convent in the 1930s.

The vaporetto stops just one minute from the hotel and can take you to the train station or out to the islands of Murano and Burano.

The hotel is near the Biennale Gardens, about 30 minutes' walk or a 20-minute boat ride to Piazza San Marco.
By plane: direct flights to Venice from London take 2 hours. Take an airport boat (1 hour 20 mins) to reach the hotel, or a water taxi.
