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.

My husband, Barrie Keeffe is a playwright, screenwriter and University lecturer - I am a Television Producer & Company Director. If you would like to know more about us just log on to our sister site: collaldraschoolofwriting.com We run a writing school/retreat in June and in the autumn from Collaldra.

Jacky Stoller (The Owner) purchased this apartment in 1990

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.

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'!

Venice and the Veneto

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the tail end of June and enjoyed a couple of lovely weeks in the Veneto. Our apartment had almost everything we needed, and Barry and Anita, the lovely house keeper, were only too happy to help with a few small extras (Jackie arrived a few days after us).
Our weather was unseasonably wet for a few days, but this didn't hold us back. We were easily able to get into Venice, where the weather was glorious, in around an hour, including our short drive into town to catch a train. Magical, and well worth the effort. Verona (complete with its own Colosseum!) and Padua are also well worth investing the 1 - 1.5 hours it takes to drive. There were plenty of other local towns and villages to visit, and a nice pool to sit by when the weather got dryer (although a little tricky to get in and out of for those not so dexterous).
Our hosts, Barry and Jackie were very friendly and helpful and I very much enjoyed Barry's tales of his times in the film and stage industry.
Whilst the cottage was rustic, a few miles outside of the small local town and up a track, this is just how we like it and it had everything we needed to make for a very happy holiday.
Thank you so much, Barry & Jackie, Anita & Lorenzo, for a lovely couple of weeks.
Kenny, Jane, Claire and Hannah

Superb base to explore the Veneto

  • 4 of 5
My family spent a wonderful week in the bottom apartment. Nothing was too much trouble for jacky and barrie, who were on hand and great hosts. The local area has some super items of interest, local caves, lake, and mountains. Day trips to Venice and Verona were all very possible from this beautiful location. With three teenagers there was plenty to do on site, the children spent many happy hours in the superb pool, also a meadow with badminton, and table tennis. We would definitely recommend as a place to stay and explore the veneto.

Excellent break from the hustle and bustle of life

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a peaceful and enjoyable week at Collaldra. Jacky and Barrie were great hosts – very friendly and welcoming. Jacky provided a helpful guide to basic phrases when dining out, and details of interesting things in vicinity and we made good use of this. We stayed in the bottom apartment. The lounge/dining area was comfortable. TV/DVD player was provided although TV had limited English channels. Kitchen well equipped. Pool was well maintained and just the job for cooling down. Great to be able to use table tennis table and badminton net. Beware after dusk though, the mosquitoes get you! Wine in the supermarkets was cheaper than England, food fairly comparable. Jacky recommended the agriturismo (local farm providing a restaurant quality meal at a good price) – well worth doing. We had a lovely week in a beautiful setting – Highly recommended.

Magical Collaldra

  • 5 of 5
I spent a wonderfully relaxing fortnight at Collaldra in July 2009 and have every intention of returning in 2010.
Tucked up in the foothills of the Dolomites, this house provides spectacular views and a real taste of Italian rural life. On days when we were feeling active, there were walks in the surrounding hills and day excursions to Venice and Verona. Or- on days when we felt like doing very little- there was a beautiful pool with water sourced from a mountain spring to swim in and "flop" by. In the evenings we would dine al fresco at the house or visit one of the many wonderful local restaurants recommended by our hosts, Barrie and Jacky (who were very warm and friendly, provided great service, and had a wealth of knowledge about the local area.) We can't wait to return!

Happy two weeks at Collaldra

  • 5 of 5
One of my favourite holidays by far, there are brilliant features about this get-away resort. Such as the pool, the scenery, the badminton and the amazing restaurants close by. My most enjoyed memory of Collaldra would be the company. Barrie and Jacky are brilliant hosts who make you feel at home.

I’m definitely looking forward to going back again!

Too expensive !

  • 1 of 5
The environment was ideal ..
Jacky, the owner, was very kind and helpful.
But, the swimmingpool was not clean at all; there were only 4 places to sleep; the 5th/or 6th (??) was in the leaving room on a sofa ..
The kitchen utilities were nearly unexisting: no microwavez, no coffee machine, etc. very-very poor.
I would not recommend the place on my friends.

Owner's Response: I totally accept the comments regarding the swimming pool. I was very let down by my staff during their stay and I did my best to get help with the pool as quickly as possible but there were a couple of days when it did not look very nice.

The advert clearly states that in the sitting room the 5th and 6th bed are on a sofa bed with a single bed if needed.

The comments describing the kitchen have puzzled me. I thought she was bringing her own coffee machine and I offered her a microwave which she declined. As she herself says I was very helpful and if she had told me that she needed more than the 6 place settings which are always in the kitchen I would have given her whatever equipment she wanted.
