|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Situated on the north-eastern side of La Casa Trasparente, the apartment 'La Rosa' has a classical style with its early-nineteenth-century furniture. It's composed by a spacious living room, a sitting room, a dining room and a modern kitchen -- equipped of all the essential household electrical appliances.
There are some facilities and plays available for the hosts: a park, a pool, plays like ping pong and table football. On the outside, when there's full sun, you'll find a large dryer. Around the pool there are areas furnished with small tables, chairs and beach chairs.
La Casa Trasparente is a residence made of 6 apartments, of which 2 are master apartments and 4 are tourist apartments -- holiday homes full of every comfort.
Realized with the style and the elegance of the master apartments, the touristic apartments - all at the ground floor - have direct access to the garden. The furniture is composed by ancient and modern pieces.
Two touristic apartments are connected each other, creating a unique apartment, which measures 110 sm., and that can host up to 10 persons.
The guests have access to a big shady parking lot -- near to the park, in which there is a pool and furniture for relaxing. You'll find there a big terrace that is softly lightened in the evening, and that embraces - with tables, chairs and benches - all who like to eat out of doors.
In the park there are seesaws, trampolins, pulley, liane and a slipway that attract the kids and let the adults - for whom there are a ping-pong table, table football and darts - to have space for some relax.
I, Marialuisa, have lived in this house since 1974. Before 'La Casa Trasparente' was built, I used to live in Vicenza, in the center of the city. Then I decided - together with my husband - to buy a plot, on the hills of Vicenza, on which we could build the house that we desired: a house in the wild, that allowed us, from the inside, to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Berici Hills. Thus, the idea of replacing some walls with big glass walls that could make the locations brighter.
That's the place where we built our 'nest' and where our daughters - Marta, Elisabetta and Lucia - have grown up. Over the years they followed their partners and the house has became too big for us two. That's why we transformed a part of the house in touristic apartments, by giving every apartment the style and the comfort of the master house.
MARIA LUISA SALA purchased this apartment in 1974
We bought the plot on the hills of Vicenza because we wanted to live in a quiet and green place that was, however, near to the city.
Vicenza is reachable in 6 minutes and his historic center in 15. For us, living here has been - and it is, now - important because we'd been able to raise our daughter like we wanted to, that is in very close contact with nature and far from air pollution. By living on the hills and having a big park at our disposal, it's been possible to have animals. The hills offer delightful landscapes, but also meaningful human contact on the social side; the local elderlies are considered, to this day, the 'wisemen' and are consulted and very well respected.
La Casa Trasparente has been built by us in 1974, and it's been published, in 1980, on 'Casa Vogue' (an italian magazine about houses and fashion) for his originality and his rational internal setting.
Since we wanted to fully enjoy the hill panorama and the luxuriant vegetation, we characterized it with big glass walls; thus, the name 'La Casa Trasparente' (translation: 'The Transparent House'). The park is rich of kids plays that, being in a livable environment, allow them to play serenely letting space for the adults to rest. A big terrace, furnished with tables and benches, allows the hosts to eat out of doors, a few steps away from the apartment.
The energy is produced locally with photovoltaic panels and the hot water with solar panels.
Nous avons passé d'agréables vacances dans la casa transparente. Les hôtes sont accueillants, disponibles et chaleureux. Le gite est très propre et parfaitement équipé.
Les enfants s'y sentent tellement bien qu'il est difficile de les convaincre de partir en visite.
L'emplacement est idéal pour découvrir l'architecture italienne. Vicence est une très jolie ville et les trajets vers les autres villes sont facilités par la proximité de l'autoroute et de la gare (15 minutes en voiture).
Je conseille vivement ce gite aux familles qui souhaitent satisfaire petits et grands.
