Overview

Euganean Hills Castle Rental Photos and Description

Cosy And Elegant Apartment

Enjoy a superb apartment accommodation in Veneto, surrounded by rolling vine-covered hills dotted with small villages. At this conveniently located holiday castle, you’ll be able to explore local hill towns, go wine tasting, or take day trips to Padua or Venice. In the afternoon you can come home to this vacation retreat and enjoy a dip in the covered and heated swimming pool or cook your own authentic Italian meals. The castle is located four kilometres from Monselice where there are shops, restaurants, and markets. Dating back to 1150 and once referred to as the Monastery of Lispida, the property was bought by the Earls of Corinaldi in 1850. These new owners then added wine cellars to the property and began producing their own wine. During the early 1900’s, King Vittorio Emanuele the 3rd of Italy used the property as headquarters. Today, the castle is surrounded by parkland and lies in the centre of the Euganean Hlls Natural Park. There are also olive groves, vineyards, trees, plants, and flowers making the landscape peaceful and beautiful. There is a shared, covered, and heated swimming pool (11.5 m x 3.5m) with jet streams looking out to the ancient monastic orchard. Sun loungers are nearby. Parking is available within the property grounds.

Castello di Lispida lies in the heart of the Colli Euganei Regional Park which covers an area of roughly 20,000 hectares. These hills are some 35 million years old, created by volcanic activity, and also hid the remains of human settlements dating back to the early Stone Age, now housed in archaeological sites and ethnographic history museums. In the 15 boroughs that the park covers there aren’t only natural wonders but also medieval fortresses, stone - built villages and renaissance villas. The wooded areas have both mediterranean vegetation as well as sweet-chestnut and oak woods where foxes, hedgehogs and over 130 species of birds can be spotted.

The park can be visited following the extensive network of footpaths and cycle paths that cover the area.

The Lispida Lake is one of only two natural thermal lakes in the Euganean area; the mud found in the lake is made up or completely biodegraded matter and is considered one of the most precious resources of the Euganean area and is even known further afield.

The cultural centers of the Veneto Region have a multitude of people and traditions to thank for their rich history and have been deeply influenced by the Renaissance in the 1500’s. From that time , we had the creativity of the 16th Century, the glorious 1700’s, followed by the Hapsburg empire during the 19th century, and continuing into modern and contemporary culture. Venice is the city of art 'par excellence', destination for a romantic break or a day trip that will certainly become a vivid daydream. Then Padova, guardian town of Giotto’s and Mantegna’s masterpieces, just 15 kms. from Castello di Lispida, while Verona offers Roman and Romantic jewels, enchanting places all within a short distance .Treviso boasts works by Tommaso and Lorenzo Lotto, Andrea Palladio’s architecture lines the avenues and piazzas of Vicenza; the whole of the Veneto cries out to be discovered, from the traditions to the masterpieces.

Small provincial towns and rural areas, off the beaten track, hide unexpected gems of art and craft left by inspired artists and creative craftsmen. Veneto, the art gallery of mankind.

The region is littered with many sleepy, little towns that offer art-lovers big surprises: Arqua Petrarca, Monselice, Montagnana, Este, Asolo, Possagno, Chioggia, Feltre, Marostica, Bassano to name but a few. Here, and other places where masters such as Bellini, Giorgione, Cima, Tiziano, Tintoretto, Canova, Palladio, and Tiepolo lived and worked, we have the chance to glimpse the colours, light and landscapes that inspired them.

Villa Barbarigo in Valsanzibio, one of the most impressive Baroque gardens in existence, was perfected by the Venetian aristocrat Francesco Barbarigo during the second half of the 1600’s. His eldest son, Gregorio, cardinal and later saint, got the inspiration behind Bernini’s design for the garden. In the 1500-acre park we can now admire over 70 statues set in follies, streams, waterfalls, fountains, sequenced jeu d’eau and fish-ponds, as well as a renowned maze. Thought to be the work of Vincenzo Scamozzi, a pupil of Palladio, the 16th-century Villa Emo is only a short distance from Castello di Lispida. The vast Italian garden and park surrounding the villa can be considered a paradigm of a Veneto garden. The garden has an extraordinary variety and number of flowering plants in flower-beds and lining the waterways and lawns.

Within easy reach from Lispida there are four splendid and challenging golf courses:

Golf Club Padova- 27 holes

Golf Club Galzignano - 9 holes

Golf Club Montecchia - 27 holes

Golf Club Frassanelle - 18 holes
