Year Purchased: 1550
About the owner: I was born and grew up in this villa. First of all through my family’s care and teaching, and then in a conscious and individual way, I was charmed by these incredible surroundings permeated by tradition and a warm welcoming feeling. After having spent 10 years away studying and working, in 2002 I decided to come back here, to my home, and put all my efforts in keeping alive its splendour and making it visible to our guests, hoping that they will feel the emotions that I felt and continue to do so.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The Venetian villas are more than 4.000 houses, built between 1450 and 1700, and Ca’ Marcello is one of the few which is still lived by the original aristocratic family. The private park is 90.000 sq. meters and is rich in old-century trees, statues, flower beds. Going for a sunset stroll or for jogging in the early morning is like walking in heaven. During your stay, I'll be glad to accompany you through a private visit of the main building to appreciate the real Italian lifestyle and share our love for this beautiful place. Our family deeply believes in the great difference between being guests and being clients, and the first one is the way we like people to feel while having their holiday here. Regarding the concept: The Barchessa apartment is the only guesthouse in the whole villa, independent and perfectly positioned (in one of the arcaded wings, called ‘Barchessa’). All the bedroom windows overlook the main Italian style garden and the villa’s façade. Amenities: Several vegetables and spices can be freely picked up daily from our private kitchen garden. Dinners can be self-arranged by the guests, but can also be cooked by a private chef and served in the garden, everywhere the guests want. Surroundings and activities: the property lays in the middle of the southern Veneto region. This means being a few minutes away from all major interesting destinations in the area: Venice (35 minutes by direct train), Padua (40 mins by car), Bassano and Asolo (30 mins), Verona and Lake Garda (90 mins), Cortina d' Ampezzo (120 mins) and all charming villages and Palladian villas. Scenery lovers can visit the natural park of the River Sile, where also boating and kayaking facilities are available. Private visits to local cellars and wine producers are possible to taste the famous 'Prosecco'(50 mins from the villa). Daily boat trips on the Brenta River are easy to arrange to enjoy the stunning landscape and Palladian villas from Padua to Venice.
