We actually stayed in Apartment 6 on the top floor (for 6 people) but can't select this for the review.

We had a fantastic week at Palazzo Rosso in August 2014. The setting is simply superb. There are plains to the east, hills to the south, mountains to the north, and rocky gorges to the west. The buildings have been tastfully restored and there is plenty of space in the apartments, but also in the shared areas outdoors and by the pool. Our children loved feeding the varierty of animals kept on the farm but we were also able to spot some wildlife too such as otters in the river and hares in the fields. Within an hours drive is venice, verona, padua, vincenza, mantua and a multitude of ancient walled towns such as castlefranco, cittadela, soave, and montagagna. Lake Garda, the foothills of the Alps, and the coast are also within an hour and you can even reach some of the Dolomite mountain national parks if you are willing to go a little further.
Phil and Silvie made us feel very welcome indeed and were always on hand to give advice. Free eggs and apples each day were always welcome!
We would glady stay here again for another holiday in the future.

We had the pleasure of staying at Palazzo Rosso for a week in early May (2014) and I mean it was a total pleasure. After a week, I didn’t want to leave, I would have stayed longer. Phil and Sylvie are wonderful hosts and make you feel so welcome. Although they are always working hard on the farm, they are always available to answer questions and give you very good suggestions on ways to spend your time. I had done hours of research, reviewing places to visit and Phil and Sylvie directed us to the best sites-- sometimes one I hadn’t found on the internet and would not have wanted to miss.
The apartment was cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. A real advantage to staying here is that there are several common spaces to enjoy in addition to your apartment. The entrance room has several comfortable chairs in addition to a shelf of books/and travel guides, a refrigerator for local white wines, baskets full of lovely red wines, and a basket of farm fresh eggs. The larger common room had a pool table, which came in handy on rainy days, large comfy chairs, other games, and just in general a nice room in which to relax. The portico was our favorite spot. There were plenty of wrought iron tables and chairs on which to have your meals, with plenty of room for all who were staying there. There is a common laundry room which was very handy as well.
Phil emailed a 28 page guide to the Palazzo and the surrounding area in advance of our arrival which proved to be very practical and useful. They sent us information on how to access our apartment so that we did not have to worry about arriving at a specified time. The location was excellent for sightseeing as well; it was so conveniently located, you were in Vicenza in just a few minutes and Padua was only 20 minutes away, an easy drive. There is a new autostrada interchange nearby and we were able to drive up into the Dolomites so easily and quickly. Overall, the experience was totally satisfactory and I highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone wishing to stay in this part of Italy.
