Luxury Villa, 7 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms (Sleeps 14-16)
This large luxury villa is immersed in the heart of the Veneto wine region of Italy (in the heart of the Prosecco production zone) and is perfectly located just 30 minutes from Venice by train and 20 minutes drive from the popular beach resorts of Lido Di Jesolo & Caorle (Ernest Hemmingway's favourite seaside town). The train from the local town of San Dona Di Piave transports our guests right to the side of the Grand Canal in magical Venice and from there can either walk or take a Vaparetto (water bus) down the Grand Canal. If you love Prosecco, there's no better place to stay and also a very strategic location to see all the sights of the Veneto region.
We are convenient to both Venice Marco Polo and Treviso airports (30 mins from each).
The villa sits at the end of a private road nestled amongst a Walnut farm and a neighbouring Veneto Vineyard. You can walk through the walnut farm into the local village in 15 minutes or cycle in just over 5 minutes.
PLEASE NOTE CAR HIRE IS ESSENTIAL TO STAY HERE. We are 5 minutes drive (7kms) into the large local town of San Dona Di Piave. You can walk to the nearest village or take the bicycles through the walnut farm for essentials in the village. The property is equipped with every luxury from the Venetian antique beds and furnishings to the luxury Egyptain Cotton bedding, Duck Down Pillows and Duck Down Duvets (anti-allergy). UNLIKE MOST ITALIAN VILLAS THERE ARE MOSQUITO SCREENS ON ALL OF THE WINDOWS HERE.
The house is really big and cool inside and we also provide fans in all the rooms in case they are needed, but these are only needed for the hottest few weeks in August. The Villa is accessed by double electric gates and there is plenty of parking space.
The living area off the kitchen (complete with new oven, new cooker top, new dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine) has been decorated in a more contemporary style, but still with a touch of the classical and opulence. This area houses a large Sony Bravia Smart TV with Wifi, Home theatre system, DVD player and SKY Satellite TV with International news channels. Double doors from here lead onto the glamorous tranquil luxuriously furnished South facing sun tanning terrace, which is very Nikki beach style and is lit up at night by wonderful candles & torches to make a perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. A BBQ frames the terrace area for that summer outdoor dining experience.
There is a well- equipped gym and a laundry room with new washing machine and high speed WIFI works perfectly around the house and out onto the sun terrace.
A tour of the fabulous local wine cantinas is a must and if you like Prosecco you are in the heart of the finest Prosecco producers here andcan buy the best at a fraction of the price elsewhere. Take your pick of the best Veneto wines to accompany perhaps a fresh fig, Mozzarella and Basil salad, made from our own fig tree in the gardens. We also have plum and pomegranate trees.
There is a very up-market Italian Designer outlet store about 5 minutes away at Noventa di Piave which they come to by the coach load from al over Europe. Here you can buy e.g. Frette bedding for a fraction of the prices you would pay in Venice, plus Armani, Prada, Gucci, Fendi and all the leading Italian brands. There are local restaurants within a few minutes drive that are a really high quality, with very low cost compared to what you will experience in Venice. The local supermarket is only 3 minutes drive away. The road we are located on runs alongside a narrow river that is widely used by local fishermen and in the area around the villa you can see much beautiful wildlife such as Peacocks, Pheasants, Cranes, Rabbits and Hares. Why not catch your own fish and cook it on the BBQ?
You are ideally situated to visit the entire Veneto region from the Villa, including the beautiful historic town of Treviso, the home of Benetton, with wonderful shops and restaurants (30 mins drive), Verona (made famous by Romeo & Juliet - 1 hr drive), Padova, Vicenza, Bassano Del Grappa, Cortina Ski resort, Montebelluno or even take a day trip to Lake Garda and see Gardaland with the kids. In the beach resort area of Lido Di Jesolo you will also find the biggest water theme Park in Europe for the kids to enjoy - Aqualandia and the Jolly Roger pirate ship which offers a fun day out for families or a dinner cruise for adults. Lido di Jesolo is alive with nightlife, restaurants, clubs and street parties.
*N.B. The Intercity train Venice to San Dona Di Piave takes 20 mins as it makes no stops but if you catch a regional train which makes stops at towns on the way, the journey can take 30 mins.
We have hosted many weddings and events at the villa too. Enquire for details.

I worked in hospitality in Venice for over 20 years in leading luxury hotels.
Thomas purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Thomas chose Cessalto
It is in an idyllic location. It is spacious and luxurious with grand rooms and high ceilings. The beautiful terrace is a sun trap all day long. It' also so close to one of the most breath taking cities in the world - Venice.
What makes this Villa unique
Luxury and home comforts unlike any other self catering property you will find in Italy. Immersed in the heart of the Veneto wine region while being in striking distance of one of the most glamorous and romantic cities in the world. There is so much more than just Venice to see from this beautiful Villa. Our guests are always blown away and many return for more.

Quiet & Comfortable
The owners are extremely helpful, pleasant & absolutely fabulous to work with! The villa was great for four couples - it’s well-appointed, sparkling clean, extremely spacious, and a nice, relaxing retreat.
Everyone slept well, beds are very comfortable. We had no problems in the kitchen. (The bedroom showers were tight for our two tall guys so they used the larger one downstairs.)
The cook was amazing - she made breakfast our first morning & dinner our last night. I recommend you book her.
The walnut harvest began and we barely noticed it. We enjoyed walking thru the trees to the village, where the restaurant owners are friendly and the food is fairly priced & good.
The designer outlet nearby wasn’t on our “to do” list but we squeezed it in and we’re glad we did. This villa is also a good location for a day trip to Asolo, the 52-tunnel hike, and other destinations.
If you want to stay alongside the locals, away from the tourists & hubbub of crowded cities, I recommend this villa.
Thank you so much for your very kind review. You were fantastic guests who really embraced the authentic Italian experience. Come back soon!!!
Perfect location for Prosecco lovers
We loved being able to buy incredibly beautiful Prosecco from some of the best local wineries all around the area. The Villa was stunning and extremely comfortable. Convenient to visit Venice, Treviso and even for our day trip to Lake Garda. We also loved the beach resort areas a short drive away. The local restaurants were just incredible and great value.
Really loved the Villa. Easy to get into Venice by train in just 30 minutes. So many lovely local restaurants and other amazing sights to see around the area. Visiting wineries all around the area is a must.
lovely retreat, splendid manor house
It's remote, at the end of the road, perfect for our family reunion. Three weeks was too short for paradise.
Just to clarify that by 'remote' this guest is referring to the peace, quiet and tranquility of the surrounding countryside as we are located on the outskirts of a small village which you can walk to through the walnut farm in about 15 minutes or cycle there in about 5 minutes using the same route. It's only a 5 minute drive to the very large buzzing town of San Dona di Piave and just along the road from where the property is located you'll find a handy local bar/cafe/pizzeria with a small supermarket on the corner at a crossroads not too far from the road the Villa is located on. There are neighbours along the road too who are all very friendly. As it is the last house on the road before the walnut farm, the only passing traffic is occasionally that of the tractor for manager of the walnut farm. This makes it very safe for children and pets.
Amazing villa in the Italian countryside!
We had a fabulous time in the Italian countryside and LOVED our stay in the villa! I would highly recommend this property. We had more than enough room, the home was VERY clean and the beds were luxurious and comfortable. We loved traveling to destinations during the day (mountains, Trieste, and Venice all close day trips) and then relaxing in the villa at night. The quiet road and farms in the area was a true glimpse of what country life is like in Italy. In late June, early July the days had a warm, dry heat and the nights were cool. Perfect sleeping weather, and so quiet and peaceful. My 82 year old parents accompanied our group and they loved the first floor bedroom and bath, no stairs for them at all. They enjoyed these accommodations very much. We enjoyed the helpful neighbors and loved watching the walnut farmer tend his orchard. The trip of a lifetime!! Thank you Villa San Toma!!!!!!
Thanks for your lovely review Lisa. It was a pleasure having you all. Come back soon.
