About the property

This charming flat is perfect to discover Veneto and the surroundings.

The apartment is perfectly located to visit Veneto and the most important cities Vicenza, Verona and Venice. You will enjoy your stay in a cosy and fascinating atmosphere of other times.

Located in the historical centre of a lovely village in the Venetian countryside, the apartment is perfect to discover Veneto and the surroundings.

In the past, sculptors and stonemasons lived here and their works are still beautifully conserved: the entrance door and the antique fireplace are still decorating the house. Palladio used this same local marble to decorate his Villas.

The apartment was restored respecting the original materials like stone and wood and the interiors are furnished with taste, semplicity and elegance.

The romantic garden has direct access from one of the room and offers a beautiful view on the ancient village, in the peace and quiet of history.

The house was restored respecting the original materials like stone, marble and wood.

The interiors are furnished with taste, simplicity and elegance.

'CASTEL MANDUCA is the name, because the houses that tell a story have their own identity and soul, that here you can recognize at the first glance.

Inside, a wonderful surprise; the secret of a balance that does not exist because of an expert interior designer, but just because of passion.'

Castel Manduca is conveniently located in a very close to the motorway (1 km) so you can easily reach Vicenza, Verona, Padova and Venice.

The sorrounding area offers a wide choice of historical,natural and wine and food itineraries; amenities like Venetian Villas and much more...

You can visit city like Bassano del Grappa (and its famous bridge), Marostica (and its marvellous castle), Asolo (the beautiful village on the hills).

If you also like the mountain, trekking and winter sports, you can reach the tracks of Asiago and Folgaria (Trentino Alto Adige) just in 30 minutes by car.

  • 5 of 5

"We enjoyed our stay in Via Castelmanduca 3 tremendously. The house is small but impeccably decorated. Chocolates and homemade jam were waiting for us. We were blessed with perfect sunny weather and the little garden in the back was exciting enough for our 7-year old children. Piovene Rocchette is a quiet, little town with little to do, but in the vicinity there's almost too much to do. Verona, Padua, Vicenza, Venice, to name but a few. And not to forget the Dolomites"

  • 5 of 5

"This was a very nice stay in a very cosy house with lots of character and designer furniture. There is a great wooden stove in the kitchen which was really warm. The location is excellent being an hour from Venice and Verona and less than an hour from great skiing in Folgaria and Assiago. Also the nearby town of Bassano di Grappa is well worth a visit because of its fantastic wooden bridge and free museums.

The children especially loved the snow park with special tow line for sledges in Folgaria and the snow tubing in Lavarone.

Most of all the accomodation owners were friendly and very helpful with anything that we needed."

Klein und sehr fein!

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten zu dritt 1 Woche in dieser kleinen sehr geschmackvollen eingerichteten Ferienwohnung. Ein ganz besonderes Ambiente. Wir wurden mit frischen Blumen im Schlafzimmer, Wein und Obst empfangen. Besonders gut hat uns der schöne und schattige, von außen nicht einsehbarer Garten gefallen. Die Wohnung befindet sich in der Nähe der örtlichen Geschäfte, so dass wir das Nötigste schnell vor Ort besorgen konnten.

Während unseres Aufenthaltes wurde unser Sohn leider krank. Marco, unser Vermieter war uns dabei eine große Hilfe. Er machte für uns einen Arzttermin aus und half uns bei der Suche eines geeigneten Krankenhauses. Dafür sind wir ihm sehr dankbar.

Traumhafter Rückzugsort

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten zu dritt (ein Kind) im Juli eine wunderschöne Woche in Piovene. Wir wurden von Marco sehr freundlich empfangen und er hat uns mit allen notwendigen Informationen versorgt. Auch während des Aufenthalts konnten wir uns mit allen Fragen an ihn wenden. (Auch wenn wir davon wenig Gebrauch gemacht haben.) Die Wohnung liegt mitten in dem gar nicht so kleinen Ort Piovene, direkt neben der Kirche und ganz in der Nähe einiger Läden, Bars und Restaurants. Trotzdem ist man im in dem kleinen idyllischen Garten absolut für sich und bekommt von dem Treiben um einen herum so gut wie nichts mit (mal abgesehen von dem Glockengläut, welches wir aber wirklich nicht als störend empfanden). Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll und kreativ eingerichtet und Marco und Chiara haben wirklich an alles gedacht. Wir haben uns gleich ein paar Ideen abgeschaut. Die Lage ist äußerst zentral. Man kann direkt vom Haus hoch in die Berge laufen oder mountainbiken oder in die vielen umliegenden sehenswerten Orte fahren. Hier sind nicht nur die bekannten Touristenziele wie Verona, Venedig und Vicenza zu empfehlen, sondern auch viele der nahegelegenen mittelalterliche Kleinstädte wie Bassano del Grappa oder Citadella, ......... absolut eine Reise wert. Was man zur Wohnung wissen sollte ist, dass das zweite Schlafzimmer das Durchgangszimmer zum Bad und zum Garten ist. Könnte je nach Belegung problematisch werden. Für uns war es das nicht. Wir hatten einen absoluten Traumurlaub und würden sofort wiederkommen!!!!

au pied de la montagne

  • 3 of 5

La maison se situe dans un village tout endormi et peu attractif au pied de la montagne. Le climat est donc assez hasardeux, couvert et il pleut souvent le soir ce qui est dommage pour profiter du jardin. La maison est petite mais assez joliment aménagée. Il manque cependant un peu d'équipement pour cuisiner et lorsqu'il pleut, pour un couple avec un enfant, on est vite à l'étroit car il n'y a pas de canapé ou de coin repos. Le jardin est le point fort du gîte. Il a la vue sur le clocher et il est vraiment charmant. Piovene Rocchette est très commode pour découvrir la magnifique Vicenza (30 minutes d'autoroute porte à porte) et ses demeures paladiennes mais sinon, les autres villes d'intérêt sont assez loin et nous avons passé beaucoup de temps dans la voiture. Nous gardons de beaux souvenirs de la Vénétie si riche en patrimoine et de sympatiques petits déjeuners dans le jardin.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Nathalie, Merci pour votre feedback. We are so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your time and your stay as usually all our guests do. (we never had received such a bad review, honestly). The house is perfect for a couple. We agree with you when you say that when it rains, it's pretty tight if you have a child with you, because the only other room is actually the second bedroom. I have to say anyway that the house has accomodated also 4 people and nobody has ever complained about that: pictures and description show clearly the interiors with fornitures, rooms layout etc. But we are happy to make all our best to offer a always better stay (that's why our guest's opinion is very important for us): we have replaced the single bed in the other room with a sofa bed since that could be helpful in case of bad weather. Regarding this: as you said, the garden is the highlight of the property and unfortunately we are not able to plan the weather even if we'd like to. We have to say that you have found the only rainy week of the entire summer...sorry for that, the weather was actually amazing starting from April on. The kitchen is very well equipped as everybody always told us and is perfect to prepare a simple meal while on holiday...not obviously a Michelin Star Restaurant Menu. But we'd be happy to know more about that and to ask you what was missing in your opinion in order to provide it for the future...many thanks! As for the distances, I guess it depends on your own itinerary. There are plenty of interesting cities and places in the surroundings, museums and much more (in less then one hour): the highway is at 2km distance and you can basically go wherever you want. The location is perfect as starting point to visit all the amenities of the region, if the holiday is intended to visit the Veneto. If you intend instead to relax and stay home, I agree it would be better to rent a bigger, full optional, luxury property. Wish you all the best Chiara and Marco

From A4 Milano Venezia, take the motorway Valdastico A31 for Piovene Rocchette. Once you left the motorway, follow the indication for the village centre and then for "Santuario dell'Angelo". You'll find the house on your left before the arch.

There are amazing restaurantsin this area, but we recommend especially "Trattoria all'Angelo"

"Trattoria all'Isola" and the starred restaurants "La Locanda di Piero" and "La Peca"

They are absolutely extraordinary!
