Beautiful independent apartment that occupies part of a wing of a Palladian Villa built in the second half of the 16th century by one of the most powerful and noble families of Venice. The Villa has always been a private home, a place of glamour and elegance; always open to convivial pleasure and at the same time a warm welcoming home.

The property is centrally located and the ideal place to stay for those who wish to visit Veneto and in particular the Palladian Villas along the Brenta River, Venice (40 kms), the little jewel of Treviso (20 km), and Padova, rich in history and art treasures, which is also at 40 kms. At no more than ten minutes from the property, in different directions, are: a bar, a minimarket, a church, a bank, a train station and a restaurant. At 10 kms are a shopping mall and a supermarket. Fishing (2 kms), Tennis (5 kms), Bird watching – Nature Sanctuary (5 kms), Golf course at 15 kms (18+9 holes), Indoor Go-karting (20 kms).

The owners, who occupy another wing of the villa, are quite happy to accompany their guests, during their stay, through the refined splendors of the historical section of the villa and the park. The villa is a beautiful and untouched example of Renaissance architectural balance. The enormous 16th century complex in Palladian style is structured with a central main building which is flanked on both sides by arcaded wings (one of which on the left of the picture, houses La Contessa apartment) which frame an “Italian” style garden with a fountain, Greek mythical statues, flower beds, lawns and bushes.

The park (70.000 sqm) is fully fenced in and rich in wonderful plants pleasantly framed by long rows of hornbeams, lime trees and oak trees, which meet in front of a lovely dove cote, a chapel and a large fish pond with running water. Other areas consist of woods with century-old trees and numerous statues depicting realistic fairy-like animals and humans. The front of the property borders with a local road with moderate traffic. Close to the main building, in a garden separated from the main park and for exclusive guest use, is a 9 x 6 meter (1.60 meter deep) swimming pool, open May 1st through October 1st, surrounded by oleanders, roses and hydrangeas.

The garden is complimented by a patio equipped with garden furniture (a wooden table, ten chairs, six deck-chairs) and a barbeque/grill. A dressing room with pool towels, extra chairs and a small refrigerator is accessible from the private garden. Other amenities are a “Calcetto” field (inside the park) and three mountain bikes. There is ample parking by the apartment entrance.

The apartment develops on three floors. Main private access to the apartment is at ground floor through the porch of the left wing of the Villa. Past the main entrance door is a hall with marble stairs to the first floor. From the landing at the top of the stairs, two different sections can be reached, one on the right and one on the left. On the right is a hallway that leads to the dining room and to the kitchen, fully equipped with gas stove, electric ventilated oven, microwave, large fridge with freezer, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and other kitchen robots. An electric espresso coffee machine is made available on request. The large living room with 6 windows on three different sides of the structure can be reached both from the corridor and from the dining room. There is a well equipped open bar in the living room that also offers satellite TV, CD stereo reader and DVD player.

Back at the landing, the left section is mainly occupied by one suite that offers a double bedroom with a queen size bed, an ensuite complete bathroom with bathtub with fixed shower head and curtains, and a private sitting room. This bathroom has a washing machine and dryer in it. The entire suite has woodbeamed ceilings and the windows overlook the porch of the villa’s wing.

Returning again to the landing, wooden stairs lead to the second and top floor. Here a gallery provides access to three bedrooms. The first door opens into a double bedroom with queen size bed. A walk-through wardrobe leads to the ensuite complete bathroom with bathtub with fixed shower head and curtain. The second door opens into another double bedroom with queen size bed. The third door leads to a sitting room with CD player. A door in the sitting room opens into a large twin bedded room. The last two bedrooms share a complete bathroom with bathtub with fixed shower head and curtain that is reached from the sitting room. All the windows on this floor overlook the main Italian style garden and the Villa’s façade.

The apartment is elegantly decorated with period furniture and some antiques that belong to the family since the 16th century. Combined with new matching furniture, they create a warm and welcoming ambient. The apartment was restored and partially refurbished in 2004.
