    Overview

    An apartment in a medieval castle

    Casa nel Castello is a large apartment located in a medieval caste. A precious jewel set in a legendary landscape - might yet be the most appropriate definition of this estate, a wine estate which lies just west 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.

    The spacious apartment Casa nel Castello lies in the Castle, a building dating back to the middle ages and entirely restructured in the 1930'ies. Strategically set on the top of a small hill, the castello overlooks the surrounding countryside and appears impressive and detached from the daily activities of the wine estate.

    Casa nel Castello occupies an entire wing of the Castle.  The rooms of Casa nel Castello have been restored recently and furnished to the highest standards. You will be staying in a real castle, with walls 1 meter thick.

    The apartment is set on three levels: On the ground floor is the old vaulted kitchen, which has been turned into a pleasant room with large dining table and door leading outside onto a terrace with table and chairs for outdoor meals. The ground floor also comprises a guest WC and a service room with laundry.  Up the first flight of stairs you will find a cosy sitting and a large living room, a double bedroom and a bathroom. The 2nd floor comprises four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

    The large apartment sleeps 10 people. From the apartment two separate apartments can be made: Casa nel Castello for 6 people and Casa nel Castello for 4 people.

    At a few steps from the threshold a bathing lake and its green oasis are at exclusive use of castle guests. An organically shaped, chlorine free pool, 16 m long and 1.50 m deep, surrounded by comfortable sunbeds.

    Smaller children can have fun in a small above ground pool in a separate area of the garden which is equipped with sun beds shaded by magnolia trees. 

    Additionally, guests may enjoy the olympic sized pool of the adjacent golf club is literally 5 minutes away. The spacious outdoor pool is ideal for laps. Guests can use the pool at a reduced rate, the pool is closed on Mondays.

    The closest village, Selvazzano, is at 3 km from the estate. Here you will find all you need. The adjacent Golf Club has a simple snack bar as well as a 1 Michelin Star restaurant, which is considered one of the best restaurants in the area. One last thing: guests are granted a 10% discount on the wines of the estate.

    What you should know:
    Harvest: The estate is primarily a wine estate. The month of September and early October are the time of the grape harvest, one of the most exciting moments of the year for a wine-producing estate. They start early, usually at 8 am, and sometimes finish as late as 11pm. We apologise for any disturbance this might cause our guests.
    Weddings and other festivities: The wine-tasting hall and the lawn behind are sometimes rented out for festivities, usually on a Friday or Saturday. Should there be music it will be turned off at the latest at 12.30am.

    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.
