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.

My family spent a week at the farm this past June and had a wonderful time. Although the apartment was delightful - clean and exactly how it looked in the pictures - the most surprising thing was just how delightful the owners, Phil and Silvia, were. Phil and Silvia went out of their way to make sure we have everything we needed - including arranging for a local tour guide (who was excellent), lending us a number of books on the area from their personal library and recommending all the best local restaurants. Silvia even took my children on a tour of the farm so that they could feed all the animals - probably the highlight of the week if you ask my children. Palazzo Rosso is a working farm - they were harvesting wheat the week we were there - but no matter how busy they were Phil and Silvia always took the time to make sure our holiday was everything we hoped it would be. I highly recommend Palazzo Rosso!
It makes all the work we put into Palazzo Rosso worthwhile when someone takes the time to leave us a review like this.
Vi havde lejet 3 lejligheder til familien. Alle 3 lejligheder var i orden, dejlig store og alt fungerede fint. Det var en rigtig bondegårdsferie, og alle nød swimmingpoolen og de mange dyr. Farmen lå rigtig fint i forhold til udflugter, og en dag i Venedig var super. Sylvia og Phil er rigtig søde og venlige, og hjælper med alt hvad der er behov for.
I reallying enjoyed the excellent facilities and relaxed atmosphere. Good location-farm setting but shops and restaurants within striking distance. Easy access to main roads for longer trips. Great hosts and staff.
Great hosts, Great location, Great holiday.
Phil and Slyvia were fabulous hosts and nothing was to much trouble for them. They have a great knowledge of the area and were able to suggest many days out, how to get there and print maps if required. Despite working on the farm they always found time to find out what we were doing. One evening we were invited to a "Risotto festival" and the memories of a fantastic and very different evening will remain with us for a long time.
We visited, Verona, Venice and Vincenza using the train and enjoyed all of them.
Overall a great holiday was had by all and the hosts could not have been friendlier or more helpful and we would Highly recommend a saty with them and hope to return again in the future.
Once again Phil and Slyvia a great big thankyou.

A wonderful stay
We stayed at Palazzo Rosso for 2 weeks in August 2016 and had a wonderful time. The converted barn is so beautiful and the outdoor area so spacious and welcoming. We loved the pool, common room, massive balcony and the terrace, which provides welcome shade but catches the evening sun beautifully. Silvy and Phil were friendly and incredibly helpful, helping us to have the best holiday possible by suggesting days out and helping us book things as our Italian is so poor! Silvy took my son to show him the animals and feed them which he really enjoyed.
The apartment was clean and comfortable, really good beds. Air conditioning was very welcome. As a wonderful bonus, we were able to pick fruit - plums, apples and pears - in the orchard, and had a few eggs from the chickens too. Oh yes and the bikes were great - my kids loved riding on the back of the tandem in particular!
We particularly enjoyed visiting the Palladian villas but there is tons to see and do in the area. I would highly recommend Palazzo Rosso for a holiday that is as restful or as active as you want.
We spent a fantastic 2 weeks at Palazzo Rosso farm. It totally lives up to it's 5 star reviews. The barn has been converted to a high standard. The apartments are clean, well equipped and spacious. As a family of 5, we were very comfortable in apartment 3. The pool is great and has a bubble pool setting. Phil and Silvi are wonderful hosts. They want their guests to have an amazing stay and work endlessly to make this happen. They're on hand to offer advice on places to visit and things to do. There are lots of beautiful places to visit within an hours drive. Our children loved seeing the baby chicks and the new born kid. They also loved to feed the animals and collect eggs. Phil & Silvi organised a communal BBQ for all the guests on our last night, which was lots of fun! We don't normally go back to the same place on holiday but we will definitely go back to Palazzo Rosso and I thoroughly recommend it!
We are always happy that our guests enjoy staying here on the farm and that they realise that there are plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. We had a great improvised BBQ with all of our guests which was lots of fun for everyone !!
