Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
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.

About Cristina De Leo
I am native from Vicenza, my background is in Arts history and interior decoration. I share with my husband, the passion for antiques. We love this house and we restored it with great passion. In this days we travel a lot for work and we like to keep the house 'open and alive', so we decided to put it on rental for minded people that want to discover this 'off the beaten path' side of Italy.
Why Cristina De Leo chose Province of Padua
This a quite unique house, because it has been built to be our home. We didn't think to rent it. So it is carefully furnished down to the tiniest detail , so you would feel to be in a very cosy and elegant place. The strategic location 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 your primary choices.
What makes this Villa unique
Benefiting from being just 10 minutes drive from 3 golf courses (18 holes) and 15 minutes drive from the Hot Spring and Spa of Abano and Montegrotto and encircled by several panoramic cycling and walking tracks, it is a perfect solution for everybody liking open-air activities and wellness. Even the passionate cultural and gourmet travelers could be satisfied visiting the nearby historical cities of Vicenza and Verona as well as walled-cities and castles where it is possible find a simple but authentic hospitality, which brings you in contact with the traditional values.

We had a wonderful time here. The owner Cristina was very helpful with the booking and also had lots of helpful hints and tips for things to do while we were there.
The Villa is situated in the stunning surroundings of the Euganean Hills. The vineyard adjoining the villa also boasts fig tees and Hazelnut trees. The local area is popular for cycling and the nearby restaurants offer all you would expect from local Italian fare.
The Villa itself was roomy and cool and easily coped with 7 adults.
You will need a car if you stay here and a good sat nav is almost essential to find it initially.
Day trips to Venice and Lake Garda are possible but they would be a long day with small children. Cristina's local knowledge will help with travel tips.
A great place for a family holiday
Wonderful! Wonderful! Are there any better words?!
My husband and I stayed at this magnificent property for seven weeks. We were enchanted! The house, the views and the surroundings were spectacular. This house, lovingly restored and renovated by the owners, is exceptional. The attention to detail and the quality of the items found in the house, are higher in quality than in most rental properties. This is a house that offers luxury and comfort at the same time. Its location on a vineyard is exceptional and the surroundings are spectacular. It is located close to a small village (Teolo) which has a surprising amount of good restaurants. This, in addition to the fabulous kitchen in the house, which invites lazy cooking afternoons. Our host, Cristina, is an extremely gracious and lovely woman who is very attentive to all our needs and who oversees the maintenance of the house in an efficient, but discreet manner. She is charming and was very welcoming to our daughter who visited for two weeks and my hiking lady-friends who stayed with us for a few days. Gilles and I were very happy in this house, and we encourage anyone who is hesitating on renting the property, to go ahead and do it- it is worth it!! The pictures on internet do not do the house justice- it is even better!! Just be warned, there are two similar addresses in this small village (yes, really) and the other house which we went to first by mistake, is nowhere near the same as this one- so do not be discouraged. Hopefully this glitch is being fixed by Google GPS in order to sort that little issue... My only concern in posting this good review is that the house will be occupied the next time we want to rent it!
Like all other reviews we cannot recommend this beautiful home highly enough. The pictures are everything but flattering - what you see is what you get and even more! We 'll be back..!
Dolce far niente
Dieses Haus hat uns so gefallen, daß wir mehr Zeit vor Ort verbracht haben, wie wir eigentlich vorhatten. Wir haben uns extrem wohlgefühlt und das ganze Ambiente in vollen Zügen genossen. Das Haus wurde mit sehr viel Liebe und Geschmack eingerichtet - besonders die Küche liess keine keine Wünsche offen und war unser Lieblingsplatz. Cristina hat es meisterhaft verstanden in diesem Haus Alt und Neu zu kombinieren udn trotzdem eine gewisse Gemütlichkeit zu erhalten Auch die Lage mit Aussicht und der Garten waren fantastisch und wenn es das Wetter zuliess haben wir draußen getafelt. Der Kontakt mit Cristina war völlig unkompliziert und die Übergabe durch die liebenswerte Hausverwalterin Ivana verlief trotz sprachlicher Schwierigkeiten ohne Probleme, aber mit viel Lachen. Alles in allem ist dieses Haus fabelhaft und seinen Preis wert.
Better than anticipated
The home is absolutely charming. The kitchen has everything a good chef could desire.
Christina has gone to grey lengths to decorate this lovely home with interesting and pleasing decor. It is surprising that she would allow total strangers to stay here, so when you do, please take good care of everything as we plan to come back.
Our favorite rental in Italy
We cannot recommend this home highly enough.
Our only regret was that we planned so many day trips that we were not able to spend more time at this beautiful home. We do plan to return someday to enjoy more of the local country walks and Colli Euganei Regional Park. The owners were completely reliable in all regards and everything functioned perfectly in the house. It is very tastefully, yet comfortably, furnished and has marvelous objects throughout. We can't think of a single negative comment about this place, in contrast to other houses/apts. we've rented in Europe.
Christina was very gracious, straight-forward and helpful, and we can only wish for them to always have the best possible tenants.
One of the great pleasures of staying at this home is the beautiful walk around the vineyards adjacent to the house, and the spectacular panoramic views you get on the walks, and from the verandahs of the house.
A15 different net of paths crossing the Euganei Hills let you reach ancient Abbeys, characteristic walled villages. Spring Bath of Abano and Montegrotto with Thermal swimming pools and Spa and 2 Golf Courses (18 hole) are only 10/15 minutes by car. A paradise for cycling, many routes allow you to to reach a lot of interesting places: Galzignano and Valsanzibio, where you can admire the garden of the historic Villa Barbarigo. Arquà Petrarca, a beautiful medieval village. A bike path connects Este to Baone from Teolo to Luvigliano where you can visit the famous Villa dei Vescovi.
