About Jacopo Marcello

I was born and grew up in this villa. First of all through my family’s care and teaching, and then in a conscious and individual way, I was charmed by these incredible surroundings permeated by tradition and a warm welcoming feeling. After having spent 10 years away studying and working, in 2002 I decided to come back here, to my home, and put all my efforts in keeping alive its splendour and making it visible to our guests, hoping that they will feel the emotions that I felt and continue to do so.

Jacopo Marcello purchased this villa in 1550

What makes this villa unique

The Venetian villas are more than 4.000 houses, built between 1450 and 1700, and Ca’ Marcello is one of the few which is still lived by the original aristocratic family. The private park is 90.000 sq. meters and is rich in old-century trees, statues, flower beds. Going for a sunset stroll or for jogging in the early morning is like walking in heaven. During your stay, I'll be glad to accompany you through a private visit of the main building to appreciate the real Italian lifestyle and share our love for this beautiful place. Our family deeply believes in the great difference between being guests and being clients, and the first one is the way we like people to feel while having their holiday here.

Regarding the concept: The Barchessa apartment is the only guesthouse in the whole villa, independent and perfectly positioned (in one of the arcaded wings, called ‘Barchessa’). All the bedroom windows overlook the main Italian style garden and the villa’s façade.

Amenities: Several vegetables and spices can be freely picked up daily from our private kitchen garden. Dinners can be self-arranged by the guests, but can also be cooked by a private chef and served in the garden, everywhere the guests want.

Surroundings and activities: the property lays in the middle of the southern Veneto region. This means being a few minutes away from all major interesting destinations in the area: Venice (35 minutes by direct train), Padua (40 mins by car), Bassano and Asolo (30 mins), Verona and Lake Garda (90 mins), Cortina d' Ampezzo (120 mins) and all charming villages and Palladian villas.

Scenery lovers can visit the natural park of the River Sile, where also boating and kayaking facilities are available. Private visits to local cellars and wine producers are possible to taste the famous 'Prosecco'(50 mins from the villa).

Daily boat trips on the Brenta River are easy to arrange to enjoy the stunning landscape and Palladian villas from Padua to Venice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Marcellos,

What can we say - our group members have expressed our feelings very eloquently. Your warm welcome into your home made our stay very pleasant. Jacopo's attention to our needs was appreciated by all, and Carlotta's desserts will long be appreciated and remembered by the children.

The dinner that the chef cooked for us was the highlight of our family reunion for both the locals and the Canadian contingent.

Flo and family

  • 5 of 5

The listing for this beautiful property was clear and comprehensive with a wide selection of accurate photographs. Twice a week cleaning and change of linen in the spacious and well equipped bathrooms and pretty bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with a large table to seat 8, leading into an elegant drawing room with a wide selection of CDs and DVDs, made this a most comfortable and luxurious place for our family of 9 to stay. An extra bed was provided for the ninth person.

The large garden of many acres is full of playful statues, the canal and Colombaia perfect for picnics and a football pitch and where we had freedom to walk and picnic at will. The private garden with swimming pool was perfect for us all,including two small children, with lots of sunbeds, a shady table, towels and toys. The Loggia is a delightful place for lunching and drinks, and lots of parking.

Our hosts were charming and so helpful and kind and keen that we should feel totally at home in their delightful house. This is a particularly relaxed and welcoming place to stay.

There are all the obvious places to visit but the local villages and Treviso are worth exploring. For anyone interested in the history of the Veneto and to experience a Palladian villa at first hand this is the place to stay. We loved it and would highly recommend it.

A magnificent and memorable villa.

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful stay at Ca' Marcello to surprise a newly engaged couple. The house itself is as breathtaking on the outside as it was on the inside and was a wonderful venue for a dinner on our first night. The food, wine and service laid on for us was exceptional. 18 acres of beautifully set gardens were a delight to walk through when not lounging by the pool.The rooms were very tastefully decorated with incredibly comfortable beds whilst the kitchen was well equipped for cooking for the ten of us. It was in an excellent position to visit the surrounding area, including Venice, Treviso and Castlefranco Veneto. A magnificent and memorable stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Tom. It has been a pleasure to organize the gala dinner at your arrival. We love sharing the main house for such unique occasions and you had a great idea... Regarding the apartment, the brand new kitchen was designed and furnished last winter to add space and comfort to our guests and I'm glad you and your friends enjoyed it. I hope to meet you again in the future. Summer's just begun...

One of a kind and truly amazing family size property with easy access to Venice and Verona

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly amazing. The guest house is a wing of a 500 year old country estate set on a fantastic 18 acre property, all of which was accessible to us. The pool area was in a private yard for our private use with a nice covered outdoor eating area. The home has 4 enormous bedrooms and more than enough room for 6 of us (4 couples could easily share this place). The bathrooms were above average by any European standard. The outdoor eating area was used every day both right out our front door and the pool area. There were bikes available, parking, an 18 acre park with soccer pitch, a vegetable garden for our use, free WiFi, washer and dryer ... just amazing. The house was well furnished in a period type setting. The owner, Jacopo Marcello, was very friendly, spoke perfect English and was able to help us with anything we needed (including supplying us with good estate labeled wine) during our stay. This place is excellent for large groups or a couple of families. Only downside to the house was a small and dated kitchen (but we did have access to a BBQ). Just a picky point, the deck chairs at the pool could have all used fabric pads. The house was very close to the train into Venice, and anywhere else. The estate is also used for weddings on Saturday night, but our area was roped off and we found the people watching interesting. There were bands playing a couple of nights for the wedding, so we were treated to some free entertainment, but were never bothered with any late night noise.

- The property and grounds are much larger than portrayed in pictures

- Online pictures are accurate

- I would recommend this property to friends and family

- The property was very well maintained

- You will need a car to get you to the two main train stations (8km away or 20 km's away), but trains go everywhere

Verona was the biggest highlight in the area, even beyond Venice. We found Venice to be like a big, sweaty shopping mall, all selling the same tourist garbage down every street. If we went to Venice again, we would do it with a local guide, I'm sure there are great parts of Venice to see.

I plan on returning to this property in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Tyler, thank you for your nice review and for the useful advice on how to improve our proerty's layout and services. We're going to change the full kitchen tools and furniture in a couple of months and to buy new sets of pads for all deck chairs in the swimming pool private garden. I hope all the best for you and your family. It's been a real pleasure to meeting you at Ca' Marcello. Sincerely, Jacopo

Our Unforgettable Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our lives were enriched by the magical setting of Ca’ Marcello. Jacopo’s gracious hospitality set the tone for our photo-book perfect family reunion with my husband’s Dutch family. The wrought iron gates set between two columns – topped with one statute holding clusters of grapes representing the bounty of the vineyards and the other holding a scythe representing the bounty of the land – opened to greet us, as if by an unseen hand. With its manicured gardens - anchored by a fountain with delightful statutes and pathways lined with giant terracotta pots, each with its own lemon tree – we entered a story-book setting and walked into history. What a privilege it was to live each day in our Italian home-of-our-heart, mingling our experience with ancient stories to stir the imagination.

The unexpected touch of Jacopo’s hand-written note, tucked into a basket of fruit from the garden, inviting us to help ourselves to the vegetables, resulted in a large salad of freshly picked lettuce and sweet miniature tomatoes, with the added zest of anchovies, tuna, and feta -accompanied by crusty bread. The succulent pears were simmered in red wine and topped with whipped mascarpone and cream. A royal feast! The four-bedroom suite was spotlessly clean, inviting, and the thick towels were a welcomed luxury. The antique dressers with in-laid wood, elegant mirrors, velvet covered photo albums with metal locks, and a spinet - which was custom-made in Venice for the family composer, a contemporary of Vivaldi – resting in the grand living room of the apartment were some of the treasures. Early in the morning, paned-glass windows were opened; the shutters were unlatched and we greeted the new day.

Have you ever seen a beautifully formed sculpture in its private niche, with manicured grass at its base? She was my companion during my early-morning swim; we shared the private garden. Its vine-covered pergola, sheltering the table and chairs, invited us to relax on a tranquil day. Exploring all the Ca’ Marcello gardens was a delight.

Bringing our last night to a close with our evening ritual, we gathered around the tables that were placed outside in the left wing of the villa - its arches offering us an unforgettable view of Ca' Marcello - watching the moon appear in the night sky, savouring delicious Italian wine, and enjoying each other's company. Staying at Ca' Marcello is a treasured gift; the best place to begin each day as you explore the richness of the Veneto region nearby.

Italian Elegance and Warm Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I spent our honeymoon at this amazing, Italian Villa. The stunning facade, elegance and charm made this time of our lives most unforgettable. We also will never forget the very warm hospitality we received and the life long friends we made during our stay. The grounds of this magnificent villa were also impressive as we wandered along the many paths through several of the gardens on this property. The botanical varieties and statues were an absolute treasure to the eye. The entire Villa, preserved as a historical landmark, will never be forgotten. The hospitality that we were privileged to receive will always be remembered and appreciated. We couldn't have had a better host than Jacopo. Not knowing a bit of the language, food or locale, he was more than thoughtful as he refused to let us starve and served us breakfast, coffee and the best lasagna dinner we have ever eaten, to this day. Not to mention the other delectable dishes he cooked for us, and the wine......made at their own winery! It is truly an impressive, enchanting place as we hope for the very best for the Marcello family. We will return. Thank you again, Jacopo

6 Americans in Veneto - a magical week's journey from Ca' Marchello.

  • 5 of 5

This Villa Barchessa Apartment has it all! Our gracious and generous Villa hosts went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The time given to guiding us on day trips was invaluable. Our conversations with the owners about the history of their home and particularly about the great architect Palladio opened our eyes and hearts to the early days of the Venetian nobles. The apartment was very large and more than met our needs for sleeping, eating, and relaxation. It is a very comfortable place with 2 staircases and 2 floors.. Bedrooms and bathrooms are large and the entire apartment is full of beautiful furnishings with elegant touches. The location is very close to Padua, Vicenza, Castelfranco, Valdiobbiene, and Conegliano to name a few day trips. We highly recommend this Villa Apartment which easily sleeps 8 with lots of privacy between floors and individual room suites. Parking is easy and safe. We plan to return someday. .
