Hi I am Phil. My wife Silvy and I have owned and managed our 400 acre farm since 1992 when I moved to Italy from the UK. We started to rent out one apartment in 2002 and enjoyed having people around so much that we decided to restore a huge old 17th century barn and farm house which we turned into 6 holiday rental apartments.

Philip Frankland purchased this farmhouse in 1991

We were lucky enough to inherit Palazzo Rosso Farm from my wife Silvy's family.

Our guests love to come and stay at Palazzo Rosso because they can enjoy the benefits of being close to many beautiful places such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Mantova and Vicenza and at the same time when they want to relax they can sit back and enjoy the farm location and beautiful surroundings at Palazzo Rosso.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

The apartment was very comfortable, perfect for a family with small children. The satellite TV, DVD player & stereo made life easier when it rained. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were lots of great places to go out for dinner, the Italians all take their children out with them which was a nice change and made our evenings much more enjoyable.
There were lots of places to go and visit close by, we stayed for nearly two weeks and still didn't get to see everything.
We had a great time staying over new year, we even joined in a local new years party which was great fun.
looking forward to coming back soon.

Nice surroundings, beautiful hills, well located to the A4 highway.
We like the fire outside.
You've been very helpful and kind.
We like the fresh eggs !!

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Its just like the painting you see of the peaceful farm with rolling grapevines, it has the most beautiful mornings. The most amazing windows in each room. Each one paints a scenery of the outside. The owners are very hospitable and provided us with fresh eggs in the mornings and sometimes sweet plumbs. We will for sure return.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO RELAX OR SIGHTSEE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five had a lovely time here for six nights. We made good use of the pool, table tennis, table soccer, BBQ and bikes as well as exploring Venice, Vicenza and Verona. It has been our favourite place in our six week European holiday. The hosts are delightful - Sylvie even left fresh eggs most days for use. Everything was beautiful, no complaints.

MOST MEMORABLE STAY IN A WONDERFUL ITALIAN VILLA!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with a couple of friends stayed at the Palazzo Rosso for one week. We were all so impressed by the cleanliness and location of the villa (nestled between very quaint towns that are accessible by bicycles that the Villa provides). The apt we stayed in was complete in providing the necessary day to day items we needed for a "home away from home". Our host Phil and Sylvy were aways available to give us information about local attractions and the directions to get us there...as well as recommending nice, clean restraurants within the vicinity. We will forever be thankful for telling us about the local wine cantina (about 1 mile away from the villa) -- a definite MUST for tourists and wine lovers to see! This has THE perfect location: 45 minutes from Venice, 50 minutes from Verona, 1 hour away from 2 lovely beaches and 1 hour from Lake Garda. What more can you ask for? Needless to say, my husband and I will be making a trip back there soon...it truly is like having another "home" in italy.

Comfortable, washing machine, good beds, complete kitchen.
Wireless LAN, Table tennis with a new net, bikes for everyone, wine. The pool was open for those who were brave enough.
Nice surroundings,we enjoyed a bike trip into the beautiful hills with fabulous palazzi.

SOMMERURLAUB FÜR JEDEN GESCHMACK

  • 5 of 5
Die Lage des Palazzo ist einfach ideal. Man hat viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und Sehenswürdigkeiten (Verona, Venedig etc.) auf der Nähe.
Das Appartement war sehr sauber, zweckmäßig und hübsch eingerichtet. Die Matrazen waren gut und die Betten wurden sogar nach einer Woche neu bezogen. Frische Handtücher gab es auch. Das Einschalten der Klimaanlage vor dem Einschlafen war bei der Hitze eine Wohltat.
Unsere Jungs genossen es mit Silvy die Tiere zu füttern, Eier zu sammeln, Obst zu pflücken oder machten kleine Radtouren um die Felder. Tischtennis wurde auch regelmäßig gespielt. Den neuen Pool fanden wir alle klasse! Abends haben wir häufig den Grill benutzt und noch lange draußen gesessen.
Besonders gefallen hat uns aber die Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft von Silvy und Phil, die mit ihren Empfehlungen für interessante Ausflüge oder hervorragende Restaurants dazu beigetragen haben, dass wir einen unvergesslichen Urlaub genießen konnten.
Wir kommen bestimmt wieder...
