When you arrive to "La Rovaia" you feel liberated by the thoughts that haunt us every day, like a miracle. This home inspires a sense of serenity, thanks to the green and the landscape surrounding it. The Monte Grappa, one of the most significant mountain in our history (we fought during the First World War), dominates the view and seems to want to protect. Life in the house helps, thanks to its interior layout, life is friendly and privacy. In the large living room and kitchen where they are living, we are all together, even if everyone does something different. Who prepares the food is, however, with those who listen to music or watch television and talk cross from one side of the room, creating joy and communication between all. In winter the fireplace lights up in the morning and leave off before going to bed; is often used for cooking on the grill, which is always fun. In hot weather, instead we use the outdoor fireplace, specially created for outdoor cooking and spices such as sage, rosemary, oregano, basil and mint are all at your fingertips. During this time you can eat on the covered terrace where a large table can accommodate a large number of people.
For art lovers there is plenty of choice.

Also to visit and not miss "Villa Maser" of the architect Vincenzo Palladio in Maser. Continuing towards Altivole, the monumental "Brion Tomb" in the outlying administrative district of San Vito is worthy of mention: it is an architectural masterpiece by Carlo Scarpa and stands in the little cemetery of the village; at Altivole, on the other hand, the obligatory stop is the Barco della Regina Cornaro complex, the country residence of the former Queen of Cyprus Caterina Cornaro at the end of the Fifteenth century.
