Valle Falconera is a 50-acre private island that's available to rent on Airbnb, and it's a remote, off-the-beaten-path Italian destination.

The island is surrounded by a lagoon, which is a short boat ride away from the town of Cavallino-Treporti in Venice, Italy.

The island's rental price varies depending on the number of guests. For 16 visitors, the island can be rented for $309 a night, or $42 per person. For one or two guests, a night on the island is $104 per person.

On Valle Falconera, guests will find a pastel-colored farmhouse. The home's host, Anna Sarzetto, runs the rental spot and surrounding farm with her boyfriend, sister, mother, and father. 

The farmhouse belongs to Sarzetto's grandmother, and it holds many memories for the family.

"[My father] dedicates all his time and effort here, and he transmitted this love to me," Sarzetto told Insider. 

Sarzetto said the family uses the money they get from rentals to pay for barriers that protect the small island from high tides.

"Everyone staying here is helping to save the island," Sarzetto said.

The rooms, decorated by the Sarzetto family, exude an old-world, rustic feel.

The Sarzettos recently started a farm on the island to help promote local products. They grow artichokes and tomatoes and cultivate honey, fish, and oysters.

During their stay, guests can gather around the home's welcoming dining table to enjoy fresh, farm-to-table food.
