What our guests say about us

Everything exceeded our expectations! Isola Santa Cristina was unbelievable. René and Sandra have done a truly wonderful remodeling of the house on the island. Everything works and it is great to be close to Venice, Murano, Burano, Torcello and the mainland, but at the same being far from the madding crowd, and is excellent for the children to have fun when they were on the island – a must!

 

The views are specular, specially the sunrises, sunsets and views of the Dolomites. Gourmet cooking can be organized and it was excellent. The only thing we cannot talk about is the TV, because there was no time to turn it on…

Isola Santa Cristina is a ‘one off’ exclusive James bond style Island with chic style. I have booked the island for the last 2 years to celebrate a long weekend with my friends. Nothing is ever too much trouble and Sandra and René welcome their guests to the island, making it feel like home from the minute you step off the boat.
 

We hired a chef and waiter for the entire stay which is advisable, who made local food farmed from the island to the standard of any Michelin restaurant in London. The island is in a perfect location, away from the hassle of Venice and close to beautiful lunch venues via easy transfers to other islands. It is my happy place and I hope to return again as soon as I can.
It is literally the most exclusive and tranquil place I have ever been to. A best kept secret.

If you had asked me one year ago, which new retreat location I would be introducing in 2018, I would have said Japan. But then, Graziano mentioned Isola Santa Cristina in Venice. I only had to take one step onto the island to know that its magic would ignite possibilities, clarity and enthusiasm for our strategy retreat participants. Now, they are all heading back to their individual lives, and instead of being sad to depart this paradise, we are all excited to return and GO GET that next chapter!

A place to raise the spirits.

 

The people who came with us on the island for our special weekend had no idea about this magical place or what to expect. The only thing they knew was that we would spend a long weekend on a private island in the Venetian Lagoon.

 

We are happy to say that without exception everyone enjoyed this special and magical place where one could appreciate each other’s company in a relaxing and magical environment -- the wild life, the water, sunrises and sunsets, wonderful and friendly staff and an innovative, excellent cook. Quite close to an idyllic and heavenly place, which largely contributed to our delightful experience.  Yoga thrown in was a perfect end to a joyous day.

 

Thanks to René, his wife Sandra and wonderful staff, Yvan the talented cook, Elena the mirth filled, warm assistant who made sure our plates were truly full, to the handyman setting up the barbecue.  Oh, and also the island’s natural wildlife.

 

As for the accommodation, well, the villa is a dream and very comfortable.

 

That is how we ended our stay…relaxed, happy and joyous, hoping one day to renew the experience.
