Reviews for this vacation villa rental in Padova, Veneto, Italy
Peaceful and charming place
February 9, 2007
We thought the villa was absolutely charming and we really enjoyed our stay very much. The cleanliness was good. The location was very good for Padova and was very . The villa had all the facilities we needed.
July 2010 - There is nothing misleading about the description of Villa Mandriola.
It's grounds, buildings,interiors, furnishings,are all world class. The owner and his family are world class, also.
Our 3 generation family of 10 spent 1 week at the Villa, for a reunion, in the early part of June, 2010. There were no surprises. The kitchen is enormous, and completely equipped. Grocery shopping with everything available is very close, with reasonable prices. The bedrooms, and bathrooms are grand, and comfortable. The wall murals throughout, and statuary outside truly transport you to a romantic period in Italy. Our stay was much too short - there is so much to do around Padova - and we would have liked to just relax at the Villa longer.
I will always consider the family at he villa as friends, and would love to return to Villa Mandriola.
