Vigonza Apartment Rental Photos and Description

5 self-catering apartments of various size (sleep 2 to 8), pool and gardens

5 apartments of different sizes (sleep 2 to 8 people) and one Suite (double bedroom with bathroom), for holiday rentals or long-term business trip. The apartments are sited in the large Villa settlement and are completely independent. They are equipped with all modern comforts: well equipped kitchen or kitchenette, independent/central heating, air-conditioning, television, telephone, wifi. The guests can enjoy: the large garden equipped with outdoor furnitures, a nice BBQ area, the open air swimming-pool with solarium (open May to September), bicicles, table tennis, football and volley/badminton playground. Few metres from Villa Selvatico, along the Tergola river, a nice bike and pedestrian path is suitable for bike riding, running, nordic walking or just to take a relaxing walk. Available touristic and shopping informations about the area. Charming location, comfortable apartments, relaxing envinroment, suitable for couples, families, groups of friends.

A Holiday looking for Art and History: Agriturismo Villa Selvatico is the perfect location if you look for a cultural holiday in Veneto Region: this ancient beautiful Villa lies infact at short distance from Padua (12 km), one of the most important Art City in the Northern Italy. Many important artists, such as Giotto, Donatello and Mantegna, worked in its churches and palaces, and the second University of Italy, where Galileo Galilei used to be a professor, was founded here in year 1222. Padua is also the city of Saint Antony, with its famous Basilica, destination of pilgrims from all over the world.

Villa Selvatico is also at short distance from Venice (30 km, by car or train), from Vicenza (30 minutes by car), Verona and Treviso (45 minutes by car). Everyday you can enjoy one of these beautiful art cities and start to appreciate the art and history of this interesting Region, beginning to understand the culture that expressed in the past centuries architects as Palladio, painters as Canaletto or poets as Petrarca.

Relax and fun for the family: Agriturismo Villa Selvatico is also a perfect location for families looking for a relaxing holiday in the countryside.

Despite of the short distance with a pretty big city as Padua, Villa Selvatico is still a quiet location in the countryside of Veneto: a large farm managed since more than 60 years by the da Porto family surrounds the Villa giving our guests the silence and tranquillity that they need to sleep and relax after a busy year of work. A beautiful open air swimming pool, surrounded by the large garden, is open from May to September and gives the place a even more appealing look.

Sunbeds are sited also all over the big garden, giving the chance to enjoy the ancient park with its secular trees also to those that prefer a more lonely corner to relax.

Children and parents can easily enjoy the open space, the pool, the table tennis, or take a bicycle ride on the new cycle track along the Tergola River, the natural border of Villa Selvatico's gardens.

A long holiday or just a weekend?: Villa Selvatico is a perfect place for your holidays, giving you the chance to relax and rest, such as to visit the Region and its art spots, during your main holiday. But this place is perfect also for a shotbreak during the year, a romantic weekend with your partner, a 2-3 days stop to recharge your batteries and explore this part of Italy.

Villa Selvatico gives you the required comfort and tranquillity even for a few days.

The airports of Venice and Treviso are the closest ones (30-45 minutes by car), and the are connected daily with all the important European airports, both by low cost and traditional airlines.

We suggest the use of a car to come here easily and to have a chance to visit the surroundings, anyway a taxi service from and to Venice Airport is also available.

The main railway station of this area is in Padua, that is connected with all the other important stations in Italy.

About Antonio da Porto

Antonio da Porto is the owner of this beautiful and charming Villa. He is the descendant of an illustrious and ancient family of Vicenza, whose members belong also Luigi da Porto, knight, historian and poet who wrote in the year 1517 the short story 'Romeo and Juliet', from which Shakespeare drew inspiration for the most famous tragedy of all time.

Antonio and his family have undertaken since 1980 a work of painstaking restoration of Villa Selvatico, which is dating as construction back at the end of 1400.

During the last 15 years, 5 apartments have been obtained from the ancient and historical spaces of the Villa, that since 1997 accommodates guests from all over the world.

Antonio da Porto purchased this apartment in 1951

Why Antonio da Porto chose Vigonza

This place has been Antonio's family house since his childhood. During the recent years Antonio and his family have come to realize that the special beauty and atmosphere of this historic place could be shared with many other people. Over time, the appreciation that the guests of Villa Selvatico have shown for this place, have encouraged the family from Porto to proceed on this path of enhancement and recovery of the historical buildings, in order to let all the travellers and tourists enjoy this little piece of Italian art and history.

What makes this apartment unique

The nice garden and the beautiful park with ancent trees, the old noble mansion, make you feel deeply involved with nature and History.

Wunderbarer Urlaub in Il Portico

  • 5 of 5
Mein Mann und ich haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist
gut eingerichtet, der große Garten mit den schönen Bäumen, der saubere
Pool laden zur Erholung ein. Der Besitzer ist freundlich und zuvorkommend,
es wird alles zur Zufriedenheit der Gäste getan. Es gibt viele Informationen
für Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und touristische Unternehmungen für die Gäste,
die sich wirklich willkommen fühlen können.
Es gibt so viele wunderbare Ausflugsmöglichkeiten, man muss einfach immer
wieder kommen : Venedig, Padua, die Brenta-Villen, Verona, Vicenza......
Wir kommen wieder - und immer wieder zur Villa Servatico.

Fantastic atmosphere

  • 5 of 5
Both my husband, I and our children (7 and 10 years old) had a fantastic holiday at Villa Selvatico. We received a warm welcome and felt that that the owners and people working at the farm enjoyed having us there. The location close to Padova and Venice is perfect for exploring both cities and other attractions nearby. The lovely swimming pool was just perfect for our children and we really enjoyed the calm and relaxing atmosphere at the estate. We had a great holiday and I am sure that we will come back in the future.

Excellent, well equipped and clean apartment. Lovely surroundings and very nice pool. Owner and staff were very helpful. Information supplied on the local area was very accurate. We visited 4 local recommended restaurants, we took the bus into Padova and visited Venice twice by train as it was so easy and convenient. We also visited Castelfranco Veneto, Asolo, Treviso and Bassano del Grappa. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Review of Il Portico

  • 4 of 5
The property was very clean, well maintained and equipped to a high standard, even having a kettle and toaster, unusual for Italy! We enjoyed the pool and loungers, particularly during the high temperatures we experienced. In this regard, we also appreciated the air-conditioning. The laundry and drying facilities could do with some upgrading however.
The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her assistant Roberto who spoke and understood English.
We would recommend this property to persons with their own transport, although there are buses in the village.

Wunderschöne und sehr erholsame Ferien

  • 5 of 5
La Serra ist ein nettes und sehr gut eingerichtetes Häuschen und entspricht vollständig der Ausschreibung. Dies gilt auch für den schönen und gepflegten Pool, den großen Garten und den Park.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt zusammen mit unseren zwei jugendlichen Töchtern. Neben erholsamen Tagen am Haus und am Pool haben wir vielseitige Ausflüge in die Umgebung gemacht. Venedig und Padua und viele andere Ziele, zu denen es im Haus auch Infos gibt , sind gut erreichbar. Ein Auto ist empfehlenswert.
