Oltre il Giardino
Opposite the Church of the Frari in the city’s historic center lies this discreet town house–style hotel. Beyond a wooden door, a narrow path leads you through a brick-walled garden full of magnolia and olive trees to a stylish six-room villa. Owner Lorenzo Muner has furnished the space with family heirlooms and antiques, including 18th-century oil paintings and a framed vintage Gucci scarf.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
