About the property

'La Casa Trasparente'

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

Why MARIA LUISA SALA chose Arcugnano

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Owner's Response: E' sempre piacevole ricevere recensioni positive. Noi facciamo il possibile affichè il cliente si senta come a casa sua e possa godere appieno delle opportunità che la struttura offre. E nostra abitudine dare ciò che vorremmo ricevere quando siamo in vacanza e principalmente: cordialità, gentilezza, serenità e discreta presenza. Naturalmente gli appartamenti devono essere impeccabili perchè sappiamo bene che l'ospite vacanziere è molto sensibile alla pulizia, l'ordine ed all'eleganza e praticità degli arredi.

un havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Gentille Emilie, merci, vraiment beaucoup de grâces, pour votre critique agréable. Je suis heureux que vous ayez trouvé dans notre accueil la réponse à vos expectatives. Effectivement, le parc et les jeux à disposition sont aspects importants pour les enfants qui se sentent entendus dans leurs exigences. Les enfants ont besoin de place et de "faire et ici, il y a ces deux options. La Vénétie est une région riche de culture et d'architectures très belles et La casa Trasparente se trouve dans une position stratégique pour atteindre les villes d'art, toutes, en moins d'une heure. Dans la région ils sont célèbres les parcours enogastronomici et il est pour nous un vrai plaisir, suggérer aux hôtes où ils peuvent goûter nourritures et vins traditionnels en restaurants où on mange très bien et on dépense, raisonnablement, peu. Avec l'espoir de vous avoir ancore nos hôtes, je vous salut affectueusement

Owner's Response: Cher Laura et tous, je suis heureux que vous avez trouvé l'hébergement confortable et exactement comme il a été décrit. Nous croyons que donner une juste idée de l'endroit où le touriste passrà ses vacances est essentiel à sa satisfaction et sa sérénité. Nous faisons toujours le possible car tous les clients se sentent à la maison, en particulier les enfants. Je me souviendrai toujours avec joie de vous et vos trois «petits princes» qui sont des enfants merveilleux. Nous vous attendons encore à la Casa Trasparente....peut etre lorsque Pierre il pourrait jouer également autonome dans le parc. Un salut affectueux à Anna, Gabin et vous, bien sûr. Marialuisa

Un bel endroit...

  • 5 of 5

Une location qui présente de nombreux avantages... une situation idéale pour découvrir la Venetie, des appartements très bien équipés, une picine très propre et un grand jardin qui fait le bonheur des enfants : chaque arbre a sa balançoire, de nombreux jeux en bois fabriqués par le propriétaire sont livrés au fur et a mesure des jours qui passent, un calme absolu.... A tout celà se rajoute la disponibilité et la gentillesse des propriétaires qui donnent de nombreux renseignements pour optimiser les visites. Nous avons passé une excellente semaine chez des gens charmants !

L'attention portée aux enfants et à leurs besoins est une priorité que nous réservons à ces belles personnes qui se tournent vers nous comme des modèles; nous pensons que notre disponibilté à leur encontre générer la confiance et le respect de leur groupe d'appartenance. Un enfant "compris" est un enfant serein et un enfant serein donne tranquillité aux parents et à son voisin. Chère Agnès, nous espérons vous revoir à une autre occasion. Merci beaucoup pour votre avis. Un câlin Marialuisa
