    Overview

    A comfortable accommodation

    A precious jewel set in a legendary landscape - might yet be the most appropriate definition of this estate, a wine estate which lies just south of Padua and on the borders of a National Park, within easy reach of such cultural meccas as Venice, Vicenza, Verona, Ferrara, Mantua and Rovigo. Padua is 15 km away, Venice as much again. The closest village - Selvazzano - is at a distance of 3 km. The next railway station is in Montegrotto Terme (15 km), and from there you can each quickly and easily Padua. Your busy schedule hunting down the works of famous artists and architects needs to be punctuated by memorable meals at local trattorias, for the best of Italian cooking.

    This historical estate in the Veneto dates from the 11th century and comprises a small medieval citadel with the wine cellars, a splendid 16th century villa (La Veneziana / also featured in our portfolio), several outbuildings and a few farmhouses. The owner of the estate, a trend-setter in the Veneto, has restored three individual cottages on the estate with flair and modern comfort. Each house has a personality of its own and its own garden where you will want to wine and dine.

    Adjacent to the estate lies a golf club which has a pool and a restaurant which was given a Michelin star in November 2008.

    The spacious outdoor pool (ideal for laps) at the adjoining golf club is open from the beginning of June to the end of August. Guests can use the pool free of charge. The pool is closed with bad weather.

    Additionally, smaller children can have fun on the estate in a small above ground pool in a separate area of the garden which is  equipped with sun beds shaded by magnolia trees. The pool is open from beginning of May to end of September.

    The wine from the estate has increasingly been winning accolades from leading wine critics all over the world, an added attraction for our guests who can freely taste and discuss the production in the estate's wine shop. The estate is a medieval hamlet which grows lively at the time of harvest. Guests of the estate are granted a 20% on the high quality wines produced on the estate.

    One of the three cottages is Casa del Frate. As the name indicates, the castle priest once lived here. A couple of steps and a wrought iron gate lead into the garden of the Casa del Frate, putting an agreable distance between the daily activities of the estate and the charming two-storied building. The hall, a spacious, comfortable sitting room, the kitchen, the dining room and a bathroom (bathtub) are on the ground floor, with light pouring in through the windows from both sides of the house. A stairway leads up to two bedrooms on the first floor, one with a bathroom en suite (shower). The sofa in the living room can be turned into an extra bed. A private garden with a linden tree is equipped with a table for outdoor meals.

    Excursions in the neighbourhood

    The Veneto villas: Venetia is steeped in history and culture, towns like Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Mantua, Ferrara and, of course, Venice are within easy distance. The numerous Veneto villas, the Villeggiatura, are a real must. Now a brief history of how this came about. When Venetian maritime trade declined in the course of the 16th century, Patrician families felt compelled to rethink their old principle of "coltivar il mare, lasciar stare la terra" (cultivating the sea, letting the land be) and remembered the hitherto neglected hinterland, the Terraferma. By reclaiming the alluvial land and starting agricultural production, they had a second string to their bow, as it were. But they would not have been the Venetians, had they not as a matter of course transferred their customary civilized lifestyle to the country. This in turn meant that they had magnificent villas built in the style of their urban palaces, but situated in the midst of their agricultural estates. The most famous of these - La Badoera, La Malcontenta, La Rotonda and the Villa Cornaro Rush, for instance - were designed by Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) who combined the classical proportions of antiquity with the ground plans of the traditional Venetian palaces. Seventeen are the work of Palladio, but on the Brenta Canal north of Padua alone there are 125 villas, many of which evoke his vocabulary. The most outstanding among them are the Contarini Simes and Pisani Villas - both more princely residences than villas in the strict sense - and La Malcontenta. The villas are all easily accessible from the here offered estate. Many of them are open, at least in part. 

    The Spa Abano Terme: Abano Terme was known for its curative waters in Roman days, its mineral-rich water comes subterraneously from the Alps and shoots to the surface at a temperature of 70-80 degrees. One of the best spa hotels in Abano Terme, the Hotel Ritz Terme, specialises in therapeutic (fango, galvanotherapy, lymphatic draining, massages, hot baths and more) as well as wellness and beauty treatments (sauna, steambath, solarium, facials and more). For more information and prices their website is www.ritz.it.

    The golf course: Immediately adjoining the estate, designed by Tom Macaulay, chairman of the British Association of Golf Course Architects, the site comprises an 18-hole course (par 72 / SSS 73, length 6.318 m) and a 9-hole course (par 36 / SSS 36, length 3,012 m) and covers over 200 acres. Attached to the course are the clubhouse - a converted tobacco warehouse - the excellent Restaurant Relais Golf, a bar, a pro-shop and the swimming pool. For our guests there are 30% reductions on the green fee.
