Guestbook comments from the owner
I have come far, from an island of silver and greens

To a country, by its people much adored, where colours

Of blue and gold abound; where swifts and swallows soar

And where the terracotta tiles on rustic buildings gleam.



And of that land, there rises from a plain in the Veneto

An ancient volcanic archipelago, amidst an agrarian sea.

Wild woods worship the sun with cultured vines and leaves;

From nature’s harsh elements are nurtured olive groves.



This mysterious, shrouded world wields its magic spell

And draws to itself in thermal springs, relief for aching bones.

Poets too, have found inspiration from this strange nature zone

Where those brilliant hues shine on and verses flow and tell



Of Arquá Petrarca: stone houses radiate a golden solar glow,

Narrow and steep cobbled alleys creep up the valley walls.

Above autumnal mists, scenes mimic a witch’s cauldron!

But soon blue wins through for the kindly villagers below.



Forasmuch as I have been enchanted by the Euganean Hills

One must turn again home to things familiar and known,

But the seeds of this geographical marvel have been sown.

I must return to explore once more this park and its steeples.

FABULOUS HOSTS, FABULOUS PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Arriving in the beautiful town if Arqua Petrarca was highlighted by Arrigio's lovely wife. She took time out of her evening preparations at her restaurant to show is the beautiful flat just up the hill. After we settled in we had an amazing meal ast her place. Arrigio took the time to cone on and greet us. At any time he was available for advice. Each day he asked where planned go. Moments later a detailed email with amazing suggestions for food and off the beaten path itineraries arrived in my inbox.

I am currently planning to return as soon as i can amass the vacation time again!

I WANT TO COME BACK!!!

  • 5 of 5
I felt like we were staying with family! That really sums up everything about our stay at Casa Zorzi!
My wife and I were met at the train station by Arrigo who drove us to the apartment and we immediately were made to feel welcome. Arrigo was really great and helpful for the whole stay! The apartment itself is a beautiful place that feels like you are stepping back in history. It was super clean and well maintained, and is part of a fantastic old style town. Arrigo also recommended a great nearby restaurants as part of the town and we ended up going the following night because it was so good!!
Arrigo also offered to take us to the train station the following morning for a trip to Venice (took an hour to get there by train) and then pick us up at the end of the day.
Overall it was a great experience and I really want to come back here and explore more of Tuscany using this as our home away from home. Thanks so much Arrigo for doing over and beyond and making us feel like family there. I'll definitely recommend anyone to stay here!

PERFECT APARTMENT IN THE EUGENEAN HILLS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Casa Zorzi in the medieval village of Arqua Petrarca. The apartment was immaculate and well appointed with a private garden and parking arranged by the owner, Arrigo Zorzi. Throughout our stay Arrigo was charming and helpful and a great source of local knowledge about the area which is rich in history and natural beauty. The village is also a great base from which to explore Padua, Verona and Venice (amongst others) with easy access by car or by train. We can also highly recommend a visit to the world heritage listed Baroque gardens of the Villa Barbarigo and a meal at the Osteria run by Arrigo's wife Nina.
If you intend to stay in Venice we can also highly recommend the Casa Zorzi next to the beautiful Madonna della Orto, one of the finest churches in the city.

We stayed in the Olea apartment. Everything about our stay was perfect - our apartment which was spotlessly clean, the village and surroundings but most of all Arrigo the owner who could not have been more pleasant and helpful
We highly recommend Casa Zorzi

SUPERB APARTMENT IN LOVELY VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Rosie apartment which was lovely, with a large bedroom and good sized living areas and small kitchen. It is decorated in a beautful Italian style, very homely and fitted the surrounding very nicely. The garden outside is very nice for a drink or evening meal, and the village as a whole is greate with nice cafes, bars and restaurants.

Arrigo, the owner, could not have been more helpful and gave us very useful inside guide to Venice.

The apartment is great for exploring Venice, easy train ride in (50 min ish) and obviously a lot cheaper and more spaciours than the options in Vencie itself.

Very highly recomended.

Een mooi appartement dat zeer gunstig is gelegen ten opzichte van mooie steden als Padua, Vincenza en natuurlijk Venetie. De eigenaar heeft alles goed verzorgd, met parkeren en bijvoorbeeld wifi, spreekt goed Engels en geeft allerlei tips over de omgeving. Zeer aanbevelingswaardig.
