XV CENTURY VILLA WITH CHARMING GARDEN

Noventa Vicentina Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Apartments for 5 people each (or entire ground floor for up to 10 people)

XV century venetian Villa built as countryside house by the Noble Familiy Contarini right next to the medieval walls of the city of Este in the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills.

Strategic base to explore Venice, Padova, Montagnana, Verona, Vicenza, Thermal Baths and wineyards.

2 cozy apartments, each can host up to 5 people (one double room with double bed and one triple room with one double and one single bed).

Both apartments have toilet (in the double room) and bathroom with shower and bath tub, a fully equipped kitchen (with all cooking tools you might need).

One of the apartments has an ancient fireplace that can be used for Barbecues.

The Villa is a strategic headquarter to explore Veneto and is an attraction itself..really unique.

The house, its frescoes and the garden are registered as artistic heritage in the national list of 'Ville Venete'.

In the 6000 square meter private garden, surrounded by the romantic medieval walls and towers of the medieval castle of Este, flourish roses, aromatic plants, lemon and olive trees.

The shadow of secular trees and murmuring of fountains add peace and relax to this corner of paradise.

The Euganean Hills,40 square km natural park are a goldmine of opportunities for excursions, mountainbiking and climbing.

The Beach is at 40 minutes driving (Sottomarina) and major artistic cities like Venice, Verona, Padova, Vicenza, Mantova, Bologna, Montagnana, Treviso, Arquà Petrarca are quickly reachable by bus or public transportation.

The city of Este itself, where the house is located, is worth of a visit for its beautiful squares and churches.

Thermal facilities of Abano Terme and Montegrotto Terme are closeby.

The first floor is available for ceremonies and events like weddings or meetings and the front garden is an astonishing location for concerts or banquets.

I was born in this house around 30 years ago and short after Ibecome one of its supporters and...lover.

School: Technical University of Munich

Profession: Engineer

The life in a Villa Veneta seems sometimes unchanged after 400 years: reading, chilling in the garden, organize dinner with friends, walking in the garden, organize excursions in the beautiful coutryside.. I´ve been growing up in this beautiful place out of space and time and now, when I have some free time from my job I enjoy working in the garden, mountainbiking in the hills and barbecue. The house is very old, full of histories and hidden spots that I will be happy to show you if you will decide to visit us.

Guido Caporali purchased this villa in 1920

It´s a corner of paradise! Make it your headquarter to visit Venice, Padova, Verona, Montagnana, to bike in the Euganean Hills.

Cozy Apartments, relaxing historical garden.

Next to shopping, restaurants wineyards, thermal baths.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA, HISTORIC SETTING, CASTLE VIEWS, COZY LODGING

  • 5 of 5
My family (Mom, Dad, Sister) and wife all stayed at the Villa Contarena during Dec 2012 for three nights between Christmas and New Years. We were extremely impressed with the beautiful grounds, incredible location next to the historic Este Castle, literally look out the bedroom window and see the Castle walls and tower 200m away. Villa itself is quite historic and has its own special history. We had plenty of space to spread out in the two bedrooms, massive living room, big kitchen with original fireplace (roast a whole cow in it if you like haha) and second fireplace in the main room -- had a great fire one night. Very cool exposed wood ceiling, the owner Guido was very helpful and kind, certainly very proud of the villa and the Este area and gave us great tips and bent over backwards every step of the reservation and arrival process to help us. We stayed in the larger of the ground floor apartments. Este and the Padua area has great sites, nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of the main cities. Easy to go to Venice on a day trip from Este, 45min drive. Would love to return and highly recommend this villa rental.

WONDERFUL VILLA - CHARMING AND PEACEFUL AND FULL OF HISTORY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed att the Villa Contarena for 2 days in July 2012 and we were the only occupants during our time there. We were met and warmly welcomed by the owner's father, Allessandro and the Villa'a housekeeper. Unfortunately, due to work commitments Allessandro was unable to provide us with a tour of the 2nd floor which has been a highlight for others according to the guestbook.

The Villa itself is amazing - the guest suite was large and spacious - more than enough room for our family. The beds were quite comfortable and the towels were very soft. Everything worked - even the remote control for the private gate - and even though we did not cook, we noticed the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and necessities. The gardens surroudning the Villa are also fantastic. There are flowers, lemon trees, olive trees and large deciduous and coniferous trees that cover the grounds. It is a very peaceful and tranquil setting.

The Villa and the town of Este has rich history. The Villa borders a historic castle and is within a short walk to an excellent museum and a tourist information centre. Este is only a 5 minute walk away and we found it had many good restaurants and gellato shops and much for entertainment in the town square, which comes alive after 9 pm. We were thoroughly entertained by evening basketball games and even a magician who performed for a huge crowd.

Overerall our accommodation was very clean and tidy and provided a relaxing environment during our travels in northern Italy. The Villa is also an excellent launching location to visit Venice, Padova and other areas of the north. Unfortunately our time passed too quickly but we will be sure to stay again the next time we visit northern Italy.

I would recommend this accomodation to those with young children and or teenagers, to those with an interest in history and, as the Villa is quite spartan, to those that have an adventerous spirit. Just a note that the suite is not air conditioned - it was 39 degrees C during our visit and one must be diligent in opening/closing windows to keep the inside temperature tolerable for sleeping.
