Asolo is one of the best known and loveliest villages in Italy.
Sitting in our garden you can imagine why Asolo is called 'the city of a hundred horizons'.
Enjoy the view with a chilled glass of prosecco in your hand!
About the Borgo:
Situated in the heart of the historic centre. Prestigious villas immersed in a green oasis, facing the hills of Asolo, surrounded by history and culture. Four towers dedicated to poets and artists that lived in and loved Asolo.
Our house is named after Pietro Bembo, an Italian cardinal and poet from 1547.
He was an influential figure in the development of the Italian language.
For decades, the Borgo housed the famous Mons. Filippin School, a prestigious teaching institute founded in the Fifties, of which just one abandoned building remained. After five years of painstaking architectural, environmental and landscape design and recovery the construction has completed.
Next to the house, we have a garden with herbs as basil, rosemary, sage, mint.
Please go to our summerly vegetable garden with tomatoes, zucchini, strawberries,raspberries and cherries and feel free to pick what you need to make your perfect italian meal!
We are very near to the Asolo Golf Club
Asolo is the perfect base for cycling and walking!
You can go along the river Brenta, or the gently rolling hills around Asolo and Valdobbiadene.
Monte Grappa offers nine ascents up to 1755m of varying degrees of difficulty.
There is also the high plateau of Asiago nearby.
About Asolo its history.
The town was originally a settlement of the Veneti, and was mentioned as Acelum in the works of Pliny.
In the early Middle Ages it was under the jurisdiction of the Bishops of Treviso and a possession of the Ezzelino family.
Later Asolo was the capital, and seat of the court, of the fiefdom of Asolo, which was granted by the Republic of Venice (to which it belonged) to Caterina Cornaro, the former Queen of Cyprus; in 1489 it was granted to her for life, but in 1509 when the League of Cambrai conquered and ransacked Asolo, Caterina fled to exile and died in Venice a year later. Under her reign, the painter Gentile Bellini and the humanist Cardinal Pietro Bembo ("Gli Asolani") were part of the court.
The town was also home to the English poet Robert Browning, the actress Eleonora Duse, the explorer Freya Stark, the violinist Wilma Neruda and the composer Gian Francesco Malipiero.
The North East Italy region
Of course you have to visit the most romantic city in the world, Venice! While you're in the area, why not spend some time visiting the rest of the region. In a radius of a few hours from Venice there are beaches, lakes, castles, cities of art, nature parks, villas, and mountainous areas.
For example, you can visit the city of Romeo & Juliet, explore the origins of Prosecco wine or go skiing in Cortina.
The Villa Barbaro, also known as the Villa di Maser (1560-1570) which was designed and built by the Italian architect Andrea Palladio is less than 15 minutes (by car)away.
Asolo is a romantic little city, located at the foot of Monte Grappa, with a perfectly preserved historic old city. Every second Sunday of the month there is an antique market in the center and once a year, a film and music festival held. Venice, Padua and Vicenza are one hour away by car, to Verona it takes you 1.5 hours. To Valdobbiadene, home of Prosecco, it is only a few kilometers. Very near is the 'Villa Maser' designed by the architect Palladio and Possagno, known for the sculptor Canova. Sport fans will find the Golf Club of Asolo, possibilities of paragliding on Monte Grappa, Brenta river rafting, horseback riding and many other opportunities such as mountain biking or just long walks. The apartment is located in the center of Asolo, a pleasant stroll from the town hall. The immediate area offers numerous restaurants.

"Clean, well designed holiday home with a gorgeous view"
The hosts have thought of everything. Casa Bembo is clean, functional and well designed. The patio and garden are lovely and have glorious views of the surrounding countryside, villas and the mountains. The kitchen is very well equipped and everything was well organised. This is how all holiday rentals should be. Unfortunately our next place in Verona was a disappointment after a few days at Casa Bembo.
The only thing to note is that the centre of Asolo is a ten minute, slightly uphill walk away so you are not in the thick of things - but the view more than makes up for this.

"Lovely apartment with beautiful views"
We really enjoyed our stay in Asolo. As others have said, the generosity of and support from Caroline and Ezio was wonderful. The apartment is very elegant and comfortable. We did not have wonderful weather, but even in uncertain conditions we could sit on the terrace and enjoy the wonderful views.
We had good trips out, including Bassano del Grappa (for the covered bridge and the grappa museum) and Venice, which we reached by train from Montebelluna (as recommended by Caroline).
We advise approaching Asolo from Pagnano - and then Borgo Santa Canterina on the left before reaching Hotel Villa Cipriani on the right.

"Holidays in Asolo/Casa Bembo - a Dream!"
Another week in that wonderful ambiente of Asolo/Casa Bembo! Never have we found a holiday rental so clean, charmingly and fully equipped before - plus best services from Caroline and Ezio, letting us pick fruit and vegetables directly from their garden. Not to mention free Nespresso and Prosecco .... If all holiday rentals were like this - we would never even want to stay in a hotel! Sitting on the garden´s terrace with that unbelievably beautiful view into the hills of Montegrappa we can very well understand why so many venetian aristocrats and artists of all decades were choosing that little place on earth to relax and get creative. If I ever get to finish my book - I will do it HERE! But I will come back in between.... and next time we will climb the famous ROCCA (open only on sunny summerly Sundays - watch the lunch break) to maximise the great view into the valley.
