About Philip Frankland
Hi my name is Philip Frankland, I am married to my Italian wife Silvia Zini and we have two children, Peter born in 1999 and Daniela born in 2003. We own live on and manage or 400 acre arable farm called Palazzo Rosso Farm
Why Philip Frankland chose Longare
We own and live on this farm because my wife Silvia inherited it from her family in 1995
What makes this Apartment unique
The Mulberries is a beautifully restored apartment in a historic old farmhouse surrounded by our farm but also near to the motorway (Valdastico Sud 2 kms) and so easily accesible to all famous northern Italian localities such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Vicenza, Lake Garda, as well as Bassano, Marostica, Asolo, Ferrara and Mantova.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Good place to have - time out.
We enjoyed our time in Longare and felt looked after by the very helpful hosts Phil and Sylvie. The house is spacious, comfortable and decorated in traditional Italian style.
Our kids enjoyed the pool and garden very much. The location is very quiet and away from it all. On the other hand it is easy to get to Venice, Lake Garda, Vicenza or Verona e.g. for great daytrips.
Unrelated to the house, but relevant when staying there, are the Mosquitos at this time of year.
Comfortable relaxing get-away
Hosts were very friendly and accomodating
Lovely accommodation, great location, very friendly owners
This accomodation is very well maintained and was restored several years ago. Beautifully clean and well equipped. The area is great for cycling and walking and also great for accessing major towns and cities such as Venice, Verona, Milan, Padua, the Lakes and the Alps. The swimming pool provided a welcome chance to cool down in the evenings. The owners Phil and Sylvi, who live behind the apaartment, were extremely helpful and welcoming, providing useful tips. The fresh eggs and access to local wines and to the bicycles was much appreciated. We would very much recommend staying here if you need a base in Northern Italy.
A very warm welcome and the perfect location to explore the Veneto
The Mulberries was ideal for us - a family of five with three teenagers. Phil and Silvy made us feel very welcome and offered plenty of great advice to help us make the most of our time.
It's such a peaceful location but within easy reach of Vicenza, Padua, Verona and Venice - I'm not sure we even scratched the surface of what the region has to offer. Perhaps a return trip in the future?
The local hills were great to explore and find some hidden gems. They also provided a great place to get out on my bike - and a warm up for the big climb up Monte Grappa. The cycle paths are amazing - wish we had that sort of facility in the UK.
I think it's safe to say that we'd thoroughly recommend the Mulberries.
Outstanding inside and outside space; wonderful location. Owners kindness and interest amazing
We were 5 adults and The Mulberries was an excellent place for us. The location is brilliant for city trips to Verona/Venice etc but also to quiet unspoilt villages in the hills. Phil and Silvy are wonderful hosts, there if need them but giving you privacy too! Sylvy's brother's wine a real find. I cannot recommend this place too highly. The latest cat addition was really sweet.
We are always happy to know that our guests have enjoyed their time here on the farm and we are always here to help make their time enjoyable.

Lovely house in peaceful location and exactly as described
The house was exactly as described and had all the facilities we required. The location is quiet and peaceful and the grounds have plenty of sunny and shaded areas. The house is a short drive from all the sights in Vicenza, Padua, Venice and Verona. Lake Garda, the Dolomites and the PO delta are less than two hours drive. The local produce, wine, cheese etc, are fantastic. Phil and Silvy are great hosts always making sure we had what we needed but always giving us our privacy. This is a great location for a holiday, the only danger is trying to do too much!
Longare which is about 4km from the house is a quiet village at the foot of the Berici Hills (400 meters high) and is 13km from Vicenza city centre. The local area is perfect for hiking, mountain biking & rock climbing as well as for enjoying the local cuisine & wine tasting. The area is very quiet and rural but at the same time very central for visiting all the important touristic and cultural centres such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Lake Garda and the Dolomites.
