Corbanese Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering rental apts.in beautiful 16th c farmhouse 40 minutes from Venice

Collaldra is a 16th century farmhouse of English owners set in the seclusion of its 15 acre hill of woodland, vineyard, pasture and gardens. It has its own little church, Roman ruin, a unique large swimming pool filled with mountain spring water, a badminton court and table tennis.

The stables and hayloft have been converted into two self-contained apartments. Each comprises a large living room with an open fireplace and a convertible sofa for two extra guests, kitchen with dishwasher, large shower room , double and twin bedrooms. There is satellite television and a DVD player in each apartment. Both have their own separate entrances, garden area with table, chairs and barbecue. The apartments may be rented separately or for the larger family or group can be rented together. Perfect for quiet getaway holiday in beautiful surroundings.

The Veneto: The Veneto is greener and has a more comfortable climate than more southern parts of Italy. It has a wealth of wonderful historic cites: Venice, Verona, Vicenza, Asolo and Treviso are all easily accessible by the excellent, cheap and efficient Italian train service which is just 10 minutes from the apartments. You can even get to Florence from our local station by Eurostar in about 3 and a half hours!

The Veneto and Venice have never been more economical to visit. Because of the huge difference in air ticket prices day-to-day, we are not insisting on a particular change-over day as long as it fits with bookings we already have. This also means we can offer extra nights beyond our minimum seven, pro rata the weekly rates.

Things to see and do: There is so much else to experience in the Veneto. From the delightful local restaurants and trattorias where you eat so well and so cheaply to hang gliding off San Boldo for the more adventurous. Lago de Santa Croce which is Italy's most famous lake for wind-surfing is only half an hour's drive. And the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic are about one hour's drive away. It goes without saying that the Veneto has some wonderful Palladium villas, churches, cathedrals and museums all within easy distance from Collaldra. And Venice speaks for itself with its Grand Canal, the cathedral of San Marco, churches, galleries and the Islands easily reached by the vaporetto (water bus).

Local Events: The great local markets, Vittorio Veneto, Conigliano and Piave de Soligo - Monday, Friday and Saturday all within a 20 minute drive - are a must where you can buy anything for very little money. The people are very helpful and friendly even if you don't speak the language.

There are may other attractions for example from June through to September there are festivals throughout the area where they celebrate the harvest and anything else they can think of just so they can eat, drink, talk, laugh and dance to local bands under the stars

One of the most popular sports in our area because of the hills is cycling.

We can arrange to hire bicycles and also put you in touch with the local cycling clubs.

Jacky Stoller (The Owner) purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Jacky Stoller (The Owner) chose Corbanese

We were looking for a large old property with a view to turning part of the property into holiday apartments and eventually a summer school. Collaldra when we found it was very dilapidated and in need of modernisation which was only to be expected from a 16th century farmhouse. We have gradually changed the house, apartments and grounds and we hope without losing the character of the old house.

What makes this apartment unique

The house is on a hill in beautiful grounds with glorious views of the pre-Dolomite hills with their snow capped peaks. In the summer there is always a cool breeze and the natural pool - filled with water from the mountains - is wonderfully relaxing and is supposed to be therapeutic Even the Italians when they come up to see us call it 'a piccolo paradiso'!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent 3 wounderful weeks in Colladra with our two sons (13 and 4 years old). The building is located on top of a hill, a place of peace and quiescence. Nearby there are antique ruins and a marvellous swimming pool reconstruted in an acient basin. The place is remindful of an "ideal landscape" like to old painters used to describe. The apartments are large and comfortable.

Major places of interest are nearby: Treviso, Belluno, Italian Dolomites Venice, Padua and others. 45min to the beaches.

All in all: perfect location to visit the district:

Recommended for families with or without kids or dogs.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our second most enjoyable holiday in Collaldra in North Italy at the foot of the spectacular Dolomites.

The house itself, an imaginatively converted 18th Century farmhouse, is stunningly beautiful and makes inspired use of its setting. It has spacious and comfortable family accommodation, well equipped with all mod cons.

Inspired use has been made of it’s unique setting with attractive gardens leading to a very pleasant swimming pool.

The panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and countryside are breathtaking. The setting is peaceful and secluded and from here there are a number of excellent walks. The nearby town is a short and a very pleasant walk away where there is a very good Supermarket, Baker and Butchers.

There are superb restaurants in the surrounding countryside, which are easily accessible by car, where the food is as wonderful as the surroundings.

We enjoyed a perfect day in Venice, which is easily accessible by train.

Jacky and Barrie are warm, welcoming and perfect hosts, friendly and helpful above and beyond what was necessary.

Collaldra is a wonderful place for a holiday. Reading, lazing in the sunshine, swimming in the pool, walking, and eating in the superb nearby restaurants all make for a perfect laid-back and relaxing break. This was also a holiday packed with fantastic places to visit. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and we look forward to returning.

Perfect - picollo paradiso indeed.

  • 5 of 5
The pool is bigger and more fun than photography can show, the setting is tranquil, the hospitality was spot on. It was an absolutely brilliant place to stay and we were sorry to leave after just one week. We never tired of the scenery, the quiet, the so-friendly but discrete hospitality of both Jacky/Barrie and the local Italian helpers. An hour from Venice, two from Verona. Really was a perfect stay. We never write reviews on websites... but like our holiday at La Collaldra, this is an exception.

A Holiday in real Italy

  • 4 of 5
Colladra is good place to have a relaxed holiday. There is a lot of space in and around the house, a pool surrounded by old roman walls. Jacky and Barree give a lot of good advice, including a self-written guidebook.
The region is fortunately not dominated by tourism and so you have the possibility to experience real Italy. We suggest trips to Vittorio Veneto and Conegliano. At the weekends you can eat excellent meals at the local agritourism restaurants or the local summer village fairs.
If you are interested in cycling you can rent a bike at a local shop. The adjoining hills are about 500 metres high so don`t expect the trips to be too easy.
Travelling by car from the north we recommend to leave the Brenner Motorway at Trento and head for Feltre and Valdobbiadene.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I arrived I felt as if I had come to Paradise. The house is beautiful, set in amazing surroundings. The Top Apartment was perfect. Private, spacious, cool, with stunning views - rolling hills, lush green trees and the bluest sky. Not a motorway in sight! .It was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything one could possibly need. The owners, Jacky and Barrie, could not have been more welcoming. The swimming pool is nestled under the last remaining wall of a Roman Fort. Badminton and table tennis are available. Veneto is a gorgeous part of Italy. Lovely towns, Treviso is a little jewel. Great bars and restaurants everywhere, and a fantastic market in Victoria Venito! And Venice itself is just 45 minutes away. A perfect holiday. Would totally recommend Collaldra, especially that Top Apartment.

The best two weeks at this apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I loved staying at Collaldra and in this unit. Spacious, clean, comfortable with all amenities provided, it has a brilliant outlook over the surrounding countryside which looks like a scene from “Sound of Music”. Hosts Jacky and Barrie were top class, warm, friendly and attentive to our needs without being in any way intrusive. I could go on but suffice to say it was two of the best weeks of our lives and a stay is totally recommended.

Our Stay in Veneto

  • 4 of 5
Villa Colladra is set in the beautiful Veneto region and was a fantastic base to explore the area. We enjoyed the sites and sounds of Vittorio Veneto, Cison di Valmarino and the local village of Tarzo as well as a day trip to Venice. Jacky was a great source of local information. We also enjoyed our day time by the refreshing swimming pool with lovely hillside views. Having been to other areas in Italy (e.g. Umbria, Tuscany), the Veneto is an area that we would love to re-visit. The environment is beautiful and the food is excellent and reasonable. The Prosecco was both delicious and reasonably priced and Jacky put us in touch with a local vineyard in Cison di Valmarino where we picked up a number of cases to take home! We enjoyed the local "Spritz" at the Gelateria in Tarzo (a cone for 1 Euro) which we believe was a Prosecco and Aperol (like Campari) mix. In other places, a "Spritz" is just Campari and Soda. My only "gripe" was that the listing indicated that there is Internet access which I had assumed to mean WiFi but in fact was the use of a mobile dongle. Not always on as it were!

Owner's Response: We do not have wi-fi at Collaldra because our phone company cannot install it here in the hills. However there is excellent access for all mobile phones and iPads. I have taken note about the mobile broadband - dongle - and in future I will arrange for the guests to have their own personal one rather than share ours.
