Country life in Venetia in search of history, harmony and beauty. Stay in luxuriously restored houses within an historical estate, an undisclosed oasis of peace between Venice, Padua and Vicenza. The estate has been in the hands of the Counts Papafava since the 13th century, well over 700 years. Its 150 hectare of ground consist of a Venetian villa, a 19th century English park, a skilfully designed 18 hole golf course and cultivated farmland. All the houses were restored according to the latest standards of biological architecture. The strategic position of the estate makes for many an inspiring day trip to Padova, Venice, Vicenza, Verona, Ferrara, lake Garda as well as Este, Montagnana, Monselice and Arqua' Petrarca in the immediate vicinity. The villas on the Brenta canal as well as the famous Palladio villas should also be on your cultural agenda.
The romanticism of this specific house makes it truly exceptional. This playfully charming was built in 1822 in pure neoclassical style. It was conceived as a place to which to retire (and not necessarily alone) and true to its purpose stands in one of the most beautiful spots of the park within a slightly sloping clearance which blossoms with poppies and daisies in spring. The front of the house, as with a real temple, is an open but protected « portico » where guests have their meals when the weather is fine.
