Description

Casa di Maria 4/5 sleeps

The two-storied Casa di Maria lies out of the busiest spots of the estate, and benefits of a beautiful view of the castle and of a private garden planted with fruit trees and protected by a hedge that surrounds it.

A short corridor leads it to the full bathroom with tub and shower, and, next to it, the kitchen with the impressive open fireplace that the guests can light up to warm the atmosphere in the cold season. The kitchen is quite spacious and it serves as dining room. On the right, a door opens into the big sitting room. On the first floor there are the two bedrooms: a double one and a twin one.

Our guests can take advantage of several activities in the estate: golf (reduced green fees), a wine tasting, and the swimming pools: a bathing lake and a above ground children pool are in the estate, while the golf club pool is about 400 mt from the apartments, and it can be entered for free (closed on Monday).

About the property

La Montecchia

If you are thinking of a genuine holiday in the Italian countryside, and at the same time you want to be close to the most important cities of art of Veneto, Montecchia is the right place to be. Nestled among cultivated fields, vineyards and hills and resembling a medieval village, this historical estate belonging to the noble family Emo Capodilista lies in a strategical position between Padova (20 km) and Vicenza (23 km), while Venice and Verona can be easily reached by train from Montegrotto (12 km). The main activity of La Montecchia is wine production, in this field a steady pursuit of excellence has won the estate several important awards over the years. Only recently La Montecchia has become an exclusive spot for holidays: the breathtaking villa Emo Capodilista was completely refurbished in 2011 and turned into a luxury rental for 12 people; the medieval castle is composed of a stunning apartment for 6 and and a suite for 2. And finally, the former houses of the farmworkers and the priest living in the estate were redecorated in 2010 to make comfortable holiday accommodations for 2 and 4 people: Casa del Camino (2 sleeps), Casa di Nando (4 sleeps), Casa del Prete (4 sleeps) and Casa di Maria (4 sleeps) make the ideal place where to start hunting down all must-sees in Veneto, and at the same time the invite to a relaxing break when you will be tired of sightseeing! In fact, every apartment benefits of its own private garden and there are two pools that our guests can access at no extra charge: a new bathing lake with relax area (chairs, sunbeds, sun umbrellas) has just been built near the office of the estate. Another small above ground pool, also with equipped relax area, is located right behind the estate office and is especially appreciated by children.

The Olympic pool (25m x10m) by the golf club is also available for our guests, who can use it for free.

Why Giordano Emo Capodilista chose Padua

At first sight you will perceive that La Montecchia is a rare pearl in Veneto, and its uniqueness lies in the perfect, harmonious merge of past and present. The historical property, still belonging to the same noble family Emo Capodilista since 15th century, preserves the splendour of the past, embodied by the magnificent Villa Emo Capodilista on the top of the hill and by the Castle on the other side of the road. But at the same time, the estate has kept the pace with modern times, in a constant, successful effort of improving its products (the Montecchia wines are worldwide known and pluri-awarded) and its accommodations: the villa has been recently refurbished and restored and it is now a beautiful location for luxury holidays and special events, while the apartments are carefully looked-after by a designer. Since last year the estate is completely autonomous in that electricity is provided by solar panels.

What makes this cottage unique

La Montecchia - Villa Emo Capodilista offers to its guests comfortable and stylish accommodations and many amenities: first of all, we recommend a tasting of the excellent and pluri-awarded wines of the estate, as well as a tour of the cellar and a plunge in the huge pool of the golf club. If you are fond of golf, you will be happy to know that our guests are entitled to special rates at La Montecchia golf. And after an intense day, you can treat yourself by dining at La Montecchia restaurant, awarded 1 Michelin star and one of the best restaurants in Veneto, also at walking distance from the apartments.

Another main advantage of this property is its enviable strategic position: set in a peaceful area of Veneto and far from traffic, and yet still close to the most popular cities of art in Veneto. Padova (14 km) and Vicenza (25 km) are within easy reach, and Venice can be visited on a daily trip just by taking a train from Montegrotto (8 km). Montegrotto and Abano are also popular for their hot springs, if you want to take a relaxing break from sightseeing, we will be happy to recommend you the best spas and thermal pools.

Beautiful, traditional property and very quiet.

  • 4 of 5

Traditional and old in a quiet setting. Very comfortable and a lovely welcome with a basket of fruit and bottle of wine. We enjoyed exploring the Venetian region and definitely made good use of the car. We went to Venice and west as far as Lake Garda.

Notes:
La Montecchia is primarily a wine estate. The month of September and early October are the time of the grape harvest, one of the most exciting moments of the year for a wine-producing estate. They start early, usually at 8 am, and sometimes finish as late as 11 pm. We apologise for any disturbance this might cause our guests.
