Overview

About the property

Castle, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

This is a very special holiday accommodation in a 16th-century Venetian villa ("Villa Veneta"). The villa is situated in Este, just 200m from the charming old town.

This property consists of two separate vakantieappartamenten that are rented together.

The first floor of this historic building, with its antique furniture and frescos may be rented for weddings, conferences and other important events. The ground floor on the other hand is split into two independent apartments. Guests may also explore the 6000 m2 of gardens surrounding the building, a haven of rest and relaxation.

This holiday accommodation with its exquisite architecture and historic attributes is the perfect place for a cultural get-away.

This Veneto villa dates back to the XVI century and was founded by the noble Venetian Contarini family, who also owned vineyards in the area (hence the name of the villa, which means Contarini Vineyard). The present day owner, Mr Caporali, has had restoration work started on the building which was declared a site of historical and artistic interest in 1964 by the Italian government and as such is protected by special legislation.

The quaint town of Este is also well worth a visit. The most important building in town is the Castello Carrarese, built in 1339. A trip to the National Museum with its Etruscan finds is also recommended, as is sampling the areas wonderful wine and food.

The perfect place for fans of walking and bike riding, the villa also makes a great base for visiting Padua, Vicenza and Venice as well as the entire Colli Euganei area with its wealth of spas and golf courses.

2 weken verbleven in deze prachtige villa. Het bevindt zich aan de rand van het centrum van Este, dus echt wel in het stadje, maar doordat het een lange oprijlaan heeft langs de kasteelmuur waarachter het prachtige stadspark ligt, ligt de villa zelf verscholen achter dit geheel en is het in de tuin super rustig. Maar kun je gewoon lopend je italiaanse ijsje halen (nog geen 5 minuten) omdat je toch zo dichtbij het centrum zit. De omgeving is mooi, het bevindt zich aan de rand van de colli euganei, een oud vulkanisch natuurgebied bekend door zijn thermen met warmwaterbronnen. Een mooi stil gebied om te wandelen en van de natuur te genieten. Daarnaast zijn steden als Padova, Vicenza, Verona en Venetie binnen 45-90 minuten te bereiken. Maar ook prachtige ommuurde stadjes als Citadella en Montagnana zijn zeer de moeite waard. Wij waren hier in de meivakantie en dan is er bijna geen toerist te vinden, dus overal erg rustig. Voordeel is dan ook de temperatuur, zo tussen de 14-26 graden. Voor de italianen koud, maar voor ons heerlijk. We zouden hier niet heel graag in de zomer zitten, dan is de tuin echt heet en er is geen verkoeling van een beek/rivier in de buurt. Wij vonden 26 graden nog te doen, maar moesten er niet aan denken dat het boven de 30 graden zou zijn.

De villa zelf bestaat uit 2 gedeelten, waarvan de ene helft een wat sobere keuken en heel kleine kamer heeft. De rechtervleugel heeft een mooie authentieke woonkamer en keuken die gerieflijk is.

Wir hatten eine super Woche in Este. Die Umgebung, das Anwesen, das Haus ist sehr geeignet für Familien die viel Platzt brauchen. Leider war das Haus im inneren sehr schmutzig und das für 200€ die man bezahlen musste. Die Küche und untensielien der Küche waren sehr schmutzig und wurden nur Oberflächlich gereinigt. Wir mussten selber Pfannen kaufen da es uns geekelt hat mit Ihren zu kochen. Die Leintücher der Betten hatten Flecken und unter den Möbel war 2cm Staub. Schade sonst wäre alles super gewesen. Wir finden es eine Frechheit das man 200€ bezahlen musten für die Reheinigung da wir vorher alles selber sauber machen mussten.
