About the Property

Villa, 7 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms (Sleeps 14)

This large luxury villa is immersed in the heart of the Veneto wine region of Italy and is perfectly located just 30 minutes from Venice by train and 20 minutes drive from the popular beach resorts of Lido Di Jesolo & Caorle (Ernest Hemmingway's favourite seaside town). The train from the local town of San Dona Di Piave transports our guests right to the side of the Grand Canal in magical Venice and from there can either walk or take a Vaparetto (water bus) down the Grand Canal.

We are convenient to both Venice Marco Polo and Treviso airports (30 mins from each).

The villa sits at the end of a private road nestled amongst a Walnut farm and a neighbouring Veneto Vineyard.

PLEASE NOTE CAR HIRE IS ESSENTIAL TO STAY HERE. We are 5 minutes drive (7kms) into the large local town of San Dona Di Piave. You can walk to the nearest village or take the bicycles through the walnut farm for essentials in the village. The property is equipped with every luxury from the Venetian antique beds and furnishings to the luxury Egyptain Cotton bedding, Duck Down Pillows and Duck Down Duvets (anti-allergy). UNLIKE MOST ITALIAN VILLAS THERE ARE MOSQUITO SCREENS ON ALL OF THE WINDOWS HERE.

The house is really big and cool inside and we also provide fans in all the rooms in case they are needed, but these are only needed for the hottest few weeks in August. The Villa is accessed by double electric gates and there is plenty of parking space.

The living area off the kitchen (complete with new oven, new cooker top, new dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine) has been decorated in a more contemporary style, but still with a touch of the classical and opulence. This area houses a large Sony Bravia Smart TV with Wifi, Home theatre system, DVD player and SKY Satellite TV with International news channels. Double doors from here lead onto the glamorous tranquil luxuriously furnished South facing sun tanning terrace, which is very Nikki beach style and is lit up at night by wonderful candles & torches to make a perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. A BBQ frames the terrace area for that summer outdoor dining experience.

There is a well- equipped gym and a laundry room with new washing machine and high speed WIFI works perfectly around the house and out onto the sun terrace.

A tour of the fabulous local wine cantinas is a must and if you like Prosecco you are in the heart of the finest Prosecco producers here andcan buy the best at a fraction of the price elsewhere. Take your pick of the best Veneto wines to accompany perhaps a fresh fig, Mozzarella and Basil salad, made from our own fig tree in the gardens. We also have plum and pomegranate trees.

There is a very up-market Italian Designer outlet store about 5 minutes away at Noventa di Piave which they come to by the coach load from al over Europe. Here you can buy e.g. Frette bedding for a fraction of the prices you would pay in Venice, plus Armani, Prada, Gucci, Fendi and all the leading Italian brands. There are local restaurants within a few minutes drive that are a really high quality, with very low cost compared to what you will experience in Venice. The local supermarket is only 3 minutes drive away. The road we are located on runs alongside a narrow river that is widely used by local fishermen and in the area around the villa you can see much beautiful wildlife such as Peacocks, Pheasants, Cranes, Rabbits and Hares. Why not catch your own fish and cook it on the BBQ?

You are ideally situated to visit the entire Veneto region from the Villa, including the beautiful historic town of Treviso, the home of Benetton, with wonderful shops and restaurants (30 mins drive), Verona (made famous by Romeo & Juliet - 1 hr drive), Padova, Vicenza, Bassano Del Grappa, Cortina Ski resort, Montebelluno or even take a day trip to Lake Garda and see Gardaland with the kids. In the beach resort area of Lido Di Jesolo you will also find the biggest water theme Park in Europe for the kids to enjoy - Aqualandia and the Jolly Roger pirate ship which offers a fun day out for families or a dinner cruise for adults. Lido di Jesolo is alive with nightlife, restaurants, clubs and street parties.

*N.B. The Intercity train Venice to San Dona Di Piave takes 20 mins as it makes no stops but if you catch a regional train which makes stops at towns on the way, the journey can take 30 mins.

We have hosted many weddings and events at the villa too. Enquire for details.
