Padova villa description

Newly, fully restored by the owners with total respect of its original structure and character.

Ca’ Contea is a countryside farmhouse with a history going back centuries. The house, built on a property of 12 acres, stands among the vineyards on the hillside of Padua, in the heart of Veneto Region. Its position is central between the wonderful cities of Padua, Vicenza, Venice and Verona.

The house is 400sq, distributed on two levels. On the ground floor, the front door leads onto one of the two living rooms, both with a fireplace and comfortable sittings. The adjacent big kitchen opens in a large veranda with a squared table for 'al fresco' dining.

A huge dining room with a wooden six metres-long dining table, a bathroom with tub and a laundry room complete the ground floor.

A staircase leads to the second floor, where there are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (with shower) and a very spacious study-library. The master bedroom has a four-poster bed; two bedrooms have two single beds each (on request it is possible making them as double bed), and one is a single bedroom (cozy, but small).

The study-library has a fireplace and two glass-windows overlooking the valley.
Decorated with stylish, comfortable appeal, Ca’ Contea is a perfect choice for those seeking peace and serenity, but with very easy access to the nearest village and surrounding cities.

                                    Spacious and tastefully decorated throughout, there is plenty of room to relax both outside and in. Cristina has created a fantastic base from which to tour the surrounding area, a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. It is within easy reach of Padua, Vicenza and Verona, and surrounded by well tended grounds and overlooking rolling vineyards, one of which supplies excellent wine at a very reasonable price. The description and photographs on the website are accurate and we found Cristina helpful and friendly. We would thoroughly recommend Ca'Contea.

                                    We have travelled to Italy for years, renting a villa each time and this was the most beautiful villa we have ever visited. The pictures do not do it justice: the kitchen is huge and has everything a cook would need; there are several living rooms; the dining room is perfect; the upstairs bedrooms are all wonderful, airy, light with windows and plenty of room for all. It is beautifully furnished throughout, with a traveller’s every need met. It is perfectly located to explore the Euganie area, vineyards, Venice, Parma, Verona and the lakes. We did both, drove everywhere to check out the sites and relaxed at the villa. Cristina was easy to work with and all of her posted suggestions are very helpful. We would recommend this villa and Cristina to anyone. We plan to return next year. You will love this villa as much as we did I am sure.

                                    Seit Jahren reisen wir nach Italien und mieten jedes mal eine Villa, aber diese Villa war die schönste die wir je besucht haben. Im Vergleich zu den Fotos ist die Wirklichkeit viel besser: die Küche ist riesig und grosszügig und hat alles was ein Koch brauchen müsste, es gibt einige Wohnzimmer, und das Esszimmer ist ideal. Die Schlafzimmer oben sind alle herrlich; wunderbar luftig und voller Licht von den Fenstern, und haben genug Platz für alle Besucher. Die Villa ist durchgehend wunderschön eingerichted und erfüllt jederman’s Wunsch. Die Lage ist perfekt um das Euganie Gebiet, Venice, Parma, Verona, und die umliegenden Weinberge und Seen zu erkunden. Wir genossen beides: haben die Gegend erforscht und machten es uns gemütlich in der Villa. Es wahr schlicht und einfach mit Cristina in Verbinding zu kommen, und alle ihre geschriebenen Vorschläge sind sehr hilfreich. Wir empfehlen die Villa und Cristina weiter und planen nächstes Jahr wiederzukommen

                                    We rented Ca' Contea for a couple of days in April. The property was larger and even more charming than the photos portray. It was the perfect base for hikes in the nearby hills and visits to the local restaurants. The owner of the property provides vistors with spot-on restaurant recommendations. I am looking forward to a return visit in the fall.

                                    After a long trip we are home again and wish to thank Mrs. de Leo for a really good time in her magnificent villa. We enjoyed the very sophisticated interior and the beautiful garden. Also the service was excellent. We would certainly love to come back again. Many thanks again for a really wonderful time and we are savoring the lovely memories of our holiday.

                                    Ca'Contea elicits so many wonderful memories that I am unsure where to start. The house is magnificent. Our quest was to find a country home that had history and charm but had been renovated to modern standards. This is a very large old stone building that has all modern amenities, including a great laundry room. The description is accurate but there are actually 4 fireplaces including the one in the kitchen that you can use to grill - wonderful! There is also an outdoor pizza oven, which isn't listed. The microwave was not installed as of 5/2012 but may have been added since. Everything in the house was of the best quality down to a Rowenta iron. The kitchen is very well and completely stocked. As we are all cooks, we were excited to find all the pots and pans. The oven is a puzzle because unlike US ovens, there is no exact temp setting. Have them show you exactly how to operate it as the directions are confusing. The roses and wisteria were in bloom as well as some of the flowering trees. It was a blooming wonderland. We had fresh flowers in the house all the time. You overlook the property's fruit trees and vineyards, which are hilly and beautiful. We did not comprehend the hilly nature of the area until we arrived. Cristina's restaurant recommendations are dead on. We particularly loved the local Ristorante da Antonio, owned by Cristina's friends. We also took her recommendations when traveling the area and found those restaurants to be wonderful as well. There is a winery up the hill within walking distance. We loved their offerings and like all wines in the area, were very inexpensive. The little market in Teolo as well as the butcher shop and greengrocer were quite adequate for most needs. However, we chose to go to Sisa toward Padua for large shopping. For traveling the area, this villa couldn't be topped. We visited Montagnana, Arqua Petrarcha, Venice, Verona, Vicenza, Padua, Montselice, Este, Mantova, the Termes, etc. All are within easy reach for day trips. However, we find that GPS is absolutely necessary. Finding Ca'Contea is a nightmare the first time. Have them send you a map that is detailed - printed from Google Maps or some such site. The written directions were inadequate. The house was immaculate with service people nearby for any issues. Cristina was always available for answering questions via phone or email. After 3 weeks in the fabulous house I really didn't not want to leave. I will be willing to act as a reference.

                                    Previous reviews of this property are accurate - this villa is a big beautiful home with lovely decorating and appointments throughout. We stayed at Ca'Contea during an extreme heat wave in the last weeks of August, and this heat colored our perceptions of the home and location. Lack of fans, air conditioning or a cross breeze made this home nearly impossible to sleep in at night. Teolo is a lovely little town, and we were lucky to be there during a village festa - lively music and great food every night for a week. It is a long drive to Padova if that is your intended destination, but the hills and surrounding areas are indeed lovely. We had two small children traveling with us, and I would not suggest this home for small ones - older children and teenagers might love exploring the vineyards though! The orchard setting of the villa is beautiful, but unfortunately there are no screens on any windows and the summer insects were irritating uninvited guests in the kitchen and bedrooms. Dispite some of our negative experiences we really would reccomend this villa to others, but not in the heat of the summer months.

                                    Owner response: August is notoriously the worst month of the year in Italy, unless you are on the sea shore, but this year for three weeks was a nightmare, all Italians complained. Weather is still something impossible to control! In the past 5 years we had many guests came in July or August (mostly from Germany and France) and nobody said they could sleep. Being at 300 mt on the sea level and into a natural park, normally in Teolo during the night, the temperature drop of few degrees and there is a nice breeze, but yes from half of July to the end of August could be very hot. I am really very sorry you have not be able to fully enjoy your stay. For the future guests, please ask me all information before coming I will be more than happy to help you to make the right choice.

                                    We and our two friends were enthralled with this charming villa. The rooms were spacious and beautifully appointed. There was abundant space for anything we wished to do and the decor was amazing. The setting was special with wonderful views of the adjoining vineyards. We enjoyed the fruit trees, especially the delicious cherries and mulberries. The picturesque village of Teolo was a pleasure to visit with its friendly merchants and beautiful scenery. We especially appreciated watching the numerous cyclists as they wound their way up the hill to the village on a daily basis--what an unexpected treat. The ambiance, food, and wonderful staff at Ristorante Da Antonio, nearby, was truly memorable--we are still talking about it. We all agree that a return visit is high on our priority list. Thank you for providing such a gorgeous home for our vacation base.

                                    Teolo is where beauty meets poetry, nature meets harmony. I had a marvellous stay with friends and dream of returning with my husband. The welcome is very warm, the place is so charming... Ideal place for resting holidays, but full of options for cultural excursions!!!

                                    This is a property that exceeded my expectations in every aspect : comfort, cleanliness,beauty and atmosphere. The interior decoration is most elegant and the owner's artistic touch is evident in every room, always in an understated yet original manner. I stayed in "Ca' Contea" last December with two adult members of my family and we instantly fell in love with it. Having arrived tired and stressed, within minutes of walking in we were totally charmed and relaxed. The villa is large, with a strong, solid structure featuring exposed stonework and beautiful timber fittings. The rustic character of the original building has been beautifully and sensitively retained without any of the modern comforts one expects being neglected. Being winter, we spent most of our time indoors and especially enjoyed entertaining friends in the large country kitchen complete with fireplace. Every corner of every room in this beautiful house merits exploring. I particularly liked the spaciousness of the rooms and the stylish, unpretentious decor This villa epitomizes the best of Italian style and country living and I would certainly return given the opportunity.
