Guesthouse of villa valmarana nani
A perfectly renovated attic of the guesthouse of the villa Valmatna near Vicenza is a gem.
It is a great shame that it was not made clear that there were a LOT of stairs up to the apartment and that apart from the formal gardens there was nowhere to sit outside and relax except for the cafe. Everbody was very pleasant and we had an enjoyable stay.
If you want to experience life in Italy, this is the place. You open your windows in the morning and take in the fresh air and see the beautiful countryside. You are outside of town a bit so the car is helpful but not necessary because cabs can be called. There is a biking and running trail very close as well.
Thank you Bobby!
If you love Italian culture and history. You will love this place. You are staying directly above and around priceless works of art. Very cozy with books and family pictures all around.
Our GPS was wrong and it took us a couple of tries to figure it out. Just go to the top of the hill and look for the famous dwarf statues.
The dwarfs next time will show you the right way.
They will stay there and wait for you..
Come back again!
Modern accommodations in a splendid historical setting
The apartment was everything we could have hoped for, and more. It is extremely comfortable, elegantly decorated and well-appointed. The atmosphere was relaxed, peaceful, culturally refined. The long salon was a beautiful place to come home to after a busy day of sightseeing in Vicenza and neighbouring towns in the Veneto.
The Villa with its guest house (the "Foresteria") has the feel of being in the country, but we soon discovered that we were only a ten-minute walk away from an excellent supermarket (Interspar). The train station is only twenty-four minutes away by foot and five minutes away by taxi. The historic centre of Vicenza can be reached after a pleasant half-hour walk. We arrived at the Villa on a Sunday evening after the supermarket had closed, but we found a great little osteria (Il Buganiere) near the bridge going into town, not far from the supermarket, and we enjoyed a very pleasant dinner of regional specialties.
The open kitchen in the flat made a simple meal or a group dinner for eight as easy as can be. The washer/dryer were easy to use and convenient. The views from the master bedroom and ensuite are unforgettable. The architectural details of the flat--the wood beams, the bedroom frescoes, the old-fashioned square windows--are wonderful. Our visit to the magnificent Tiepolo frescoes in the Villa itself (free for guests at the Foresteria) was a highlight of the entire trip!
Grazie! Waiting for Paul,
Perfect stay in Palladian Vicenza
Ideal location for touring the treasures of Vicenza and the Veneto. The guest accommodation was over the top wonderful. One bedroom was clearly the "master" with frescos on the walls and ceiling, the other two bedrooms were very comfortable but nothing spectacular. The kitchen met all the needs of two gourmet cooks. Library was a bonus, with spectacular books on the region and the art. Nice dining and casual living areas. Secure parking was included in the costing -as was private tours of the villa and the guesthouse first floor rooms. As a family of artist and architects I would highly recommend this stay; it is immediately adjacent to Villa Rotunda and I walked over at sunrise, sunset, moonlight -and several times during the days. WONDERFUL!!!
Grazie Michael, come back soon!
