Padua City Villa Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 8, 4 bedrooms
This beautiful, independent apartment 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 is a beautiful and untouched example of Renaissance architecture. The enormous 16th century complex is structured with a central main building, flanked on both sides by arcaded wings (one of which houses Villa Conte). These frame an “Italian” style garden with a fountain, Greek mythical statues, flower beds, lawns and bushes.
The villa has always been a private home, a place of glamour and elegance; always open for great parties and at the same time a warm, welcoming home. The owners, who occupy another wing of the villa are quite happy to accompany their guests through the refined splendours of the historical section of the villa and the park. Whatever your reason for going, you really will be spoilt at Villa Conte.

The last two bedrooms share a bathroom with bathtub with fixed shower head 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.
In a garden separated from the main park and for exclusive guest use, is a 9 x 6 m swimming pool (open from May 1st - October 1st), surrounded by oleanders, roses and hydrangeas.
