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.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un super séjour à la Casa transparente, les propriétaires sont adorables, serviables.Ils font tout pour que le séjour soit agréable. Le lieu est vraiment très bien pour les petits comme les grands. Jeux divers, piscine, chaises longues, belle terrasse pour tous mais intimité possible. Le logement est très bien équipé. Bref, super et nous y retournerions sans problème.

Maria Louisa et Pietro sont très sympathiques et ils partent très bien le français.

Trés bon séjour sur les Colli Berici

  • 5 of 5

La description de l'annonce (emplacement, disposition et équipements de la location, etc.) est conforme à la réalité.

La propriété est très propre et bien entretenue. Tout est quasiment neuf.

C'est parfait pour les petits et grands (il y a une grande balançoire, une mini tyrolienne, un trampoline, des chaises longues au bord de la piscine, plusieurs terrasses avec tables et chaises...)

Les propriétaires sont charmants et disponibles.

Cet endroit est proche de Vicence, Vérone, Venise...

Nous recommandons cette propriété à nos proches.

Owner's Response: Cher client, je vous remercie pour la belle revue, que vous avez réservé à la Maison Transparent. Nous sommes particulièrement heureux que tout cela était à votre goût. Nous avons toujours voulu que ce qui apparaît dans les portails donnera une idée correcte de ce que l'hôtel peut offrir. Nous pensons, en effet, que trouver quelque chose de plus que ce que vous attendez, il est toujours un bon début. Vicenza est sans aucun doute le centre de la région de la Vénétie, et donc toutes les villes d'art sont à moins d'une heure de route. Comme vous avez pu remarquer, nous essayons aussi d'aller au-delà des frontières régionales nell'offrivi également la carte de Mantoue, une importante destination pour ceux qui aiment l'architecture, qui en dépit d'être dans la région Lombardie, elle se trouve, seulement, à 1.15 h. à partir d'ici. Quant à notre hospitalité, merci d'appréciation .... nous faisons ce qui est dans notre mode de vie, en sachant que nous pouvons toujours donner plus. Merci encore et meilleurs vœux de l'automne marialuisa

Owner's Response: Ospitare Simona ed i suoi colleghi è stato un vero piacere; persone squisite e cordiali che auguro ad ogni struttura di ospitare. Spero di rivedere questo gruppo di medici in occasione di altri convegni e magari potrò proporre loro qualche veloce visita nei d'intorni di Vicenza. La nostra città è un vero gioiello per architetture famose nel mondo intero come "Il teatro Olimpico" e la "Villa Rotonda" e per la ricchezza di palazzi e chiese, così eleganti che incantano e donano forti emozioni.

Excellent séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Cet endroit est à recommander +++++++++++++ , nous y avons passé une excellente semaine avec nos trois enfants. Non seulement le lieu est très agréable, fonctionnel, dans un cadre très apaisant et bien placé pour le tourisme (il faudrait bien plus d'une semaine pour tout voir !) mais en plus l'accueil est vraiment chaleureux. Un gros merci à Piero & MariaLuisa pour ces très belles vacances.

Owner's Response: Cher Sandrine et Xavier, je vous remercie beaucoup pour la revue, vous nous avez envoyé. C'est vrai, notre propriété est bien positionnée dans la région en raison des destinations les plus prisées sont accessibles en moins d'une heure, mais il est également vrai que, pour visiter tout ce qui est intéressant, une semaine est un peu "peu. Nous sommes heureux de vous avoir rencontré, vous êtes des gens adorables et il n'est pas difficile d'être à l'aise avec les familles comme la vôtre qui se caractérise pour la discrétion, la gentillesse et la convivialité.J'espère de vous accueillir à nouveau chezc nous à La Casa Trasparente Meilleurs voeux pour une bonne automne Marialuisa
