The Casagrande lies in the heart of the charming village of Cison di Valmarino. The house is located at the foothills of the Prealpi Venete, not far from Venice, an area that was lovingly drawn by Durer and where both the musician Vivaldi and the painter Tiziano grew up. The property still belongs to the noble Brandolini d’Adda family and has been restored in such a way that it is a home away from home for those who wish to enjoy the best of what the Veneto has to offer.
The house originated in the 15th century and, until very recently, was the administrative headquarters of the Brandolini feud. The Brandolinis’ served, during the past millennium, the Venetian Republic and were in charge of protecting the Serenissima’s Northern borders, whilst Venice focused on commerce and naval supremacy. The family’s military history dates back to the 8th century up to the two World Wars – over the centuries more than 30 Brandolinis’ died in battle. In 1436 the famous “condottiero” Erasmo da Narni also known as the Gattamelata (immortalized by both Donatello and Giorgione) who led for many decades all of Venice’s armies and Brandolino Brandolini, his brother in arms, were given by the Republic the Cison feud as a reward for their heroic services. Today, Erasmo’s and Brandolino’s descendants still care for what remains of the feud.
The Casagrande’s family living quarters bear testimony to the family’s bellicose past. Giant battle swords, the family’s battle standard, armature and statues of the Gattamelata decorate the imposing entrance hall, part of the 18th century “casa nobile”. From there you access two ground floor living rooms, two dining halls, and two kitchens. The top floor has four stately bedrooms, a grand living room and a family TV room. The living areas are furnished with a mix of modern Italian design and items that have belonged to the Brandolinis’ for hundreds of years, including family portraits and religious paintings. The 15th century part of the house has four additional double bedrooms and three bathrooms overlooking the stables and a huge 300 year old plane tree. The house can accommodate up to sixteen guests and full housekeeping support is provided.
Of particular note in the Casagrande are three entirely frescoed rooms (“stanza pompeiana”, “stanza dei tondi” and the “studio”) which creates a genteel atmosphere of aristocratic villa life in the Venetian countryside. The main kitchen opens up to a newly restored portico where you can eat whilst enjoying the sight of the rose garden. The large kitchen has all the modern conveniences and a traditional Venetian open fireplace called a “fogher”. Following a swim in the pool overlooking the Alps, you can lunch al fresco under the monumental chestnut tree in the main garden.
The remaining empty buildings in the Casagrande cover a total 2,500 square meters and the garden spans two acres. The grounds feature a pool, an arboretum, a rose garden, horse stables and huge quaint granaries (a movie starring Marcello Mastroianni, “Moglieamante”, was shot on these locations).
Complete privacy is an integral element of the organization of the living space in Casagrande. The property lies on Cison’s beautiful main square of the village and is well secured from the outside world.

Cison is at the foothills of the Dolomites and the whole area has remained blissfully unspoiled. An imposing castle, that until recent times also belonged to the Brandolinis, guards the entrance of the valley. Numerous hiking paths lead you to the old water mills where you will find that the alpine flora and fauna have remained untouched. Within the old Brandolini feud lies the Romanic 11th century Abbey of Follina and the spectacular S.Boldo pass leading to the Dolomites. Close by you can visit many outstanding Palladian villas like Maser and La Rotonda, and delightful small towns such as Asolo, Conegliano, Feltre and Serravalle.
The area is also well known for its food and wine. Cison is on the famous “Strada del vino bianco” (the white wine road), with many cellars open for tasting to the public. The local vineyards produce the renowned Prosecco wine and the immediate surroundings have numerous excellent restaurants serving typical traditional dishes of the Veneto.
Cison is easily accessible from Venice’s Marco Polo airport (a 40 minutes drive) and is less than an hour from Piazzale Roma in Venice. Moreover, the property is close to Treviso, Padova, Vincenza as well as Cortina, the world renowned mountain resort in the Dolomites.
