Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This beautiful, independent apartment occupies part of a wing of a Palladian villa, built in the second half of the 16th century by one of the most powerful and noble families of Venice.
The villa is a beautiful and untouched example of Renaissance architecture. The enormous 16th century complex is structured with a central main building, flanked on both sides by arcaded wings (one of which houses Villa Conte). These frame an “Italian” style garden with a fountain, Greek mythical statues, flower beds, lawns and bushes.
The villa has always been a private home, a place of glamour and elegance; always open for great parties and at the same time a warm, welcoming home. The owners, who occupy another wing of the villa are quite happy to accompany their guests through the refined splendors of the historical section of the villa and the park. Whatever your reason for going, you really will be spoilt at Villa Conte.

The North East Italy region
Situated in Italy's northeast, the region around Venice (Veneto) extends from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea, by way of an expansive range of hills and a valley furrowed by rivers, canals and the Po River Delta.
The typical scenery of Veneto's coast is the Venetian lagoon, and, right on this very lagoon stands perhaps the most unique city in the entire world, Venice, visited by millions of tourists every year. Yet it is not just Venice that has natural, artistic, and traditional treasures.
As well as an extraordinary variety of scenery in Veneto there is also a rich cultural heritage that renders the Veneto such a fascinating region. From its cities of art (Venice, Padua and Verona for example) to the magnificent Palladian villas scattered along the Brenta Riviera. And not to be forgotten are the small villages of Arquà Petrarca, Monselice, Asolo and Bassano del Grappa that bring together the most typical aspects of this diverse and varied region.
The property is centrally located and the ideal place to stay for those who wish to visit the area and in particular the Palladian Villas along the Brenta River. Venice (40 km away), the little jewel of Treviso (20 km), and Padua (40 km), rich in history and art treasures.
10 minutes walk from the property are: a bar, a minimarket, a church, a bank, a train station and a restaurant. Approximately 10 km from the house are a shopping mall and a supermarket. Other activities include fishing (2 km), tennis (5 km), bird watching – Nature Sanctuary (5 km), a 18-hole golf course at (15 km) and indoor Go-karting (20 km).
