Villa La Contenta is a luxuriously restored farmhouse within an historical estate between Venice, Padua, and Vicenza. It has daily maid service, a large garden and a private pool.
This historical estate reveals its delights slowly and elegantly. Leaving the bustling Venetian activities behind you, the drive leads you on a simple country road through fields which melt into the natural park of the Eugenean hills. You will soon discover the historical main villa on top of one of the hills, the beautifully restored farmhouse Villa La Contenta offered here and a wonderfully romantic 19th century garden folly reminiscent of a Palladian temple (The Temple/also in our repertoire). The estate has been in the hands of an ancient Counts's family since the 13th century, well over 700 years.
This is one of the great Venetian properties. The 150 hectare estate consists of a Venetian villa (no picture), a 19th century English park, a skillfully designed 18 hole golf course and cultivated farmland with several farm buildings. All this 20 kilometers south of Padua, within easy reach of the famous historic villas of the Veneto, many of them built by the great Italian architect Andrea Palladio, as also the cities of the Veneto and the Lake district.
Villa La Contenta is a traditional Venetian farmhouse which has been recently fully restored. It has a total of 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, a typical "loggia" in front of the house for al fresco meals, and a large private pool. The house looks out onto the Euganean hills and the park of the estate. It is surrounded by a private, delimited garden of 6000 m2. The garden has been carefully planted with a herb garden, roses, lilac, tibetan geraniums, iris and calendula. The trees are poplars, walnut, hazelnut, as well as a series of fruit trees (fig, cherry and apple).
The 500m2 main house sleeps 12 people in 6 bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Recently a lovely extra bedroom (twin bedroom with en suite bathroom) has been created in the pool house, so a total of 14 people (in 7 bedrooms and 7 baths) can be accommodated comfortably. In the main house an additional bed is available for a 15th person.

Culture: The immense cultural wealth and variety of Venetia is the main reason for visiting this area. Villa La Contenta's strategic position makes for many an inspiring day trip to Padova, Venice, Vicenza, Verona, Ferrara, lake Garda as well as Este, Montagnana, Monselice and Arquà Petrarca in the immediate vicinity. The villas on the Brenta canal as well as the famous Palladio villas should also be on your cultural agenda.
Ecology: Villa La Contenta was restored according to the latest standards of biological architecture. The agricultural production of the estate is organic and the owners see the estate's future in becoming a full-circle organic farm: cultivation, products, cattle, fruit trees and vegetable gardens.
