About the property

This ancient dwelling Cadore, from the mid-century. XV, is located in Valle di Cadore, a town of about 2000 inhabitants, in the heart of the Dolomite region.

The building, which has been restored recently and has been the subject of a monographic publication (see. Paola Arduini, 'Galeazzi Casa del Carmine: an ancient cadorina' dwelling, Vianello Libri, 2013, ISBN 88-7200-401-2), is one of the oldest and most prestigious in the Cadore: it belonged to the ancient house of del Carmine Galeazzi , whose origins date back to Andrea da Cesena, mercenary captain in the pay of the Serenissima. The current owners are descended from just such a family. The recent restoration of the building made it possible to bring back to light interesting architectural and decorative details, including fine frescoes dating from the buckets. XVI and XVIII. Even much of the interior furnishings are from the furniture and furnishings from the family and are an interesting historical and artistic documentation.

The house is suitable for those who love, in addition to comfort, tranquility and nature, that is old, valuable and rich in history.

From the spacious terraces facing south and sunny garden it offers a splendid view of the Dolomites. The nearest ski slopes are San Vito di Cadore - 15 km - and Cortina d'Ampezzo, 'queen' of the Dolomites and home to the 1956 Winter Olympics - 23 km away.

Among the many recreational and sporting activities that can be practiced in the vicinity will be mentioned cycling and mountain biking, fishing, golf, horse riding, mountaineering, paragliding, ice skating, skiing, snowboarding, summer skibob, swimming, tennis, walking, caving, free climbing, rafting, windsurfing, sailing.

Luxurious, well-appointed, and lovingly restored

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Galeazzi del Carmine in Valle Di Cadore was a fantastic find. It is close to Cortina d'Ampezzo (but not too close to feel faux authentic). It has a wonderful library, fine kitchen, and indoor pool. There are ample rooms to read and relax - (including two living rooms and a huge formal dining room) as well as a small restored stone-arched alcove chamber that feels absolutely timeless. There is private garage parking for two cars as well as a little bike shop and market within easy walking distance. The vistas of the Dolemites from the balcony are stellar, and the WiFi systems are very fast (e.g., you can stream NetFlix with no issues). Finally, the owner Paola was a gem (and a wealth of information). She has written a lovely coffee-table style book on the restoration of the villa that is available on Amazon that has a wealth of information on the Villa. We were there in mid September, and the temperatures were excellent, and most of the lifts were open (e.g., 5 torri, Misurina, etc.). If you are inclined to biking, the path # 9 going to Prato Piazza from Cortina was great (rent a regular or e-bike from the "Snow Service 1" sports shop across from the market in Cortina). The Villa (Casa Galeazzi del Carmine) is a classic house!

Unique historic home

  • 5 of 5

My multi-generation family enjoyed a week in Paola's Valle di Cadore home in the beautiful mountains of northern Italy. The unique, historic home exceeded all of our expectations and was itself one of the highlights of our trip. Paola was an outstanding host and Maria answered many questions about where to find the best food in the area! We would recommend this listing highly. We rented bicycles for the week and especially loved the bicycle trail right near the house, traveling one direction to Cortina and the other to Calazazo. The cycling in this area is among the best anywhere! We loved our visit and plan to return. Miller Rogers Family

Our visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends (total of 8) spent two memorable weeks in the villa and enjoyed every moment of it. The house was well suited for both formal and informal dining, recreation, family time and space-just wonderful.

The location of the house was superb for our needs: walking distance to markets, banks, etc plus a reasonably short drive to the incredible hiking sites we desired. We used the house as a base for family members to adventure off to further 2-3 day excursions to Florence, Venice, Bologna.

Could not recommend it higher-or the hostess, who responded quickly and efficiently to any of our small requests.

Stepping Back in Time -- in Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a magical week in this meticulously and gorgeously restored 15th Century villa. The house offers modern amenities without sacrificing the authentic old-Italian feel. My children loved the basement stone-enclosed indoor pool and gameroom at the end of a day of hiking. Paola is a gracious and kind hostess. We were really amazed that a house with so much history and such fine period antiques would be offered up for rental, but we were so happy that it was! Recommend taking advantage of personal chef Maximillian cooking for you at the home, which Paola can arrange.

Ski Cortina wekk no.11. 2016.

  • 5 of 5

To whom it concern: We had a very good week in this house. Good Space for 8 adult skiers. The house did not miss out of anything. We will be very pleased to Return one day in the future. Skiing in Cortina was also very pleasant with good sloopes and not to many skiers. Car was needed and worked out very good with 2 cars parkering garage next to the house. Nice to come back to the house after a good skiing day and enjoy the pool for a good relaxing time. We used the citchen all the time for Cooking and eating.

All over we are very happy With over stay. So Paola; WE WIL BE BACK. Best regards Norwegian skiers!!!

Excellent stay, lovely and spacious old house beautifully renovated with awesome pool and play room

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property over X-mas with two families for a total of 10 adults+ 2 kids (ideal for 8 adults + 2/4 kids as one of the 5 bedroom is rather small). Everything was perfect and very functional. The house is renovated with a lot of effort in the details to keep its original appearance inside and outside. The description of this property and photos on the website faithfully reflect reality. The pool area is a big plus for young and adults.

It was perfect to ski in the morning hours in Cortina or San Vito (20-30 min by car) and relax in the afternoon in the pool with jacuzzi bath. Grocery shopping close by and can be reached by foot in 5 min. walking distance. If wanted, an excellent dinner can be prepared and served by a local chef recommended by Paola. Paola is very nice, friendly and helpful. Highly recommended, we will for sure come back.
