About Philip Frankland
Hi I am Phil. My wife Silvy and I have owned and managed our 400 acre farm since 1992 when I moved to Italy from the UK. We started to rent out one apartment in 2002 and enjoyed having people around so much that we decided to restore a huge old 17th century barn and farm house which we turned into 6 holiday rental apartments.
Philip Frankland purchased this Farmhouse in 1991
Why Philip Frankland chose Province of Vicenza
We were lucky enough to inherit Palazzo Rosso Farm from my wife Silvy's family.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Our guests love to come and stay at Palazzo Rosso because they can enjoy the benefits of being close to many beautiful places such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Mantova and Vicenza and at the same time when they want to relax they can sit back and enjoy the farm location and beautiful surroundings at Palazzo Rosso.

A Taste of True Italian Hospitality.......
It is very hard to summarise my stay at Palazzo Rossa Farm as there were so many wonderful facets to it. From the warm welcome of our hosts Phil and Silvie (who go over and above what is expected to ensure happy visitors) to the beautiful backdrop of the hills surrounding the farm, the lovingly renovated building that housed our apartment, the plethora of flora and fauna (dogs, pigs, donkeys, horses, chickens, sheep - sorry if I forgot anyone!), the singing of the cicadas, the stunning sun sets and the glorious facilities available to us - everything that any young or old family/couple would need to make their holiday complete. I only hope to return soon to drink of its goodness. Thanks Phil and Silvie for making it one to remember!
It is always lovely to get feedback from our guests and it is nice to know that they enjoyed their time here and are looking forward to coming back to stay.

A relaxing time in this beautifully restored barn with a great personal welcome from the owners
Like some of of the other guests, this was a return visit for us. The apartments are in a beautifully restored barn, with a great pool and gardens. Phil and Silvi are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble. It is well located for lots of day trips, and perfect for relaxing in the sun. A great holiday escape, we can't recommend it highly enough.
Everything was perect from the First Minute.
It was our Second stay at Palazzo Rosso and we enjoyed it again very very very much:
the apartement, the Garden, the Pool, the area in front of the groundfloor, the Common room to Play Billard etc......
And last but not least: Silvie and Phil.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt im Palazzo Rosso.
Die Apartments sind gut ausgestattet und schön eingerichtet.
Die Umgebung und die Ausflugsziele sind lohnenswert. Phil & Sylvie haben sich toll gekümmert! Gerne wieder!
One of the best places I stayed at
A pleasant house in a great location.
The apartment was very nice and in addition to it the children used the pool and the great playing room and took the free bicycles that are at the place and travel around.
The place is located few minutes from the highway with an easy access to Venice , Verona etc. But it is steel in a nice and rural area.
The hosts help us with all that was needed and gave us a lot of helpful information about the area.
To summarize , highly commanded.
Perfect in every way. Clean, private, beautiful interior, air conditioning, shared washer and dryer, bikes, vino, pool, and great vistas. Has parking and a short walk to public transit. I have NO complaints. Highly Recommend!
The Villa Palazzo Rosso is located near the village of Longare, in the hamlet of 'Ponte di Lumignano' at the foot of the Berici Hills (400 meters high). The local area is perfect for hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing. There are many local restaurants and wine producers where guests can enjoy the fantastic local dishes & taste the local wine. There is a cycle track which starts in Longare and winds all the way to the centre of Vicenza (14 kms).

Palazzo Rosso Farm is a perfect starting point from which to visit all of the most famous historic cities such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Vicenza, Mantova, Ferrara as well as Bassano, Marostica and Asolo. All of these locations are well within and hours drive from the farm.
Other local attractions which our guests enjoy include wine tasting in the many local wine cellars, a Grana Padana cheese factory and shop and a local organic Olive oil producer.
