Castello di Barbarano is an imposing villa built on the seventeenth century on the ruins of a medieval castle. Original parts of the castle are spectacular cellars carved into the rock and massive walls that enclose a park formed by hanging gardens with wide panoramic view. The villa overlooks the ancient town of Barbarano, nestled in a sweet and peaceful valley of the Berici Hills.
Accommodation is offered in an annex of the eighteenth century renovated, in which is housed an apartment pleasantly decorated and equipped with air conditioning, wi-fi, panoramic view. The park is available for guests to relax.
The Marinoni family is available for tips on sights and itineraries: a short distance away are the villas designed by Andrea Palladio and the renaissance cities of Vicenza, Verona, Padua and Venice.
beautiful surroundings but the apartments do not match the grounds. Very low quality except for a few lovely antiques....Owner promotes the beauty of the Castello and he is accurate, but the actual lodging is poor
Il Castello overlooks the medieval town of Barbarano, on the Berici Hills, with a breath-taking view to the sweet sunny countryside all around. The best way to discover this peaceful environment is trying out one of the many hiking and bike trails through the valleys and the woody hills: a free bike rental service is available for our guests.
An easy and pleasant bike route is “Pista ciclabile della Riviera Berica”, 31 km long, linking Vicenza to Noventa Vicentina and bordering the Berici Hills. You can easily reach it from the villa (2 km).
This is an area of well preserved natural beauty and vibrant rural culture, and it is known as the centre of Palladian architecture. Villa La Rotonda in Vicenza, for example, is one of the best known works of art designed by Palladio.
You can also visit the charming villas (with historical gardens) along the Brenta Riviera, from Padua to Venice; an easy way to visit them is taking the Burchiello, a pleasant cruise along the river Brenta.
The region is filled with stunning Renaissance cities: Vicenza, Verona (with its Teatro Romano, its Roman Arena and the famous Opera Festival), Padua (with the old University and Cappella Scrovegni with Giotto’s frescoes), Castelfranco Veneto, Treviso. Not far from here, the medieval walled towns of Montagnana and Soave are historical jewels, well worth visiting. Don’t forget to plan a day trip to the unique city of Venice, which is, of course, a must-see: you can reach it by train in only one hour from Vicenza.
