Historical villa with large garden in walking distance to town

This enchanting villa located on the edge of the stunning village of Asolo, considered the “pearl” of the Veneto. Perched above the town, the villa is set among 15.000 m2 of gardens with manicured lawns, statues, cypress and olive trees. The refined estate has a large pool, its own chapel and soaring views over the plains which reach as far as Venice on clear days. The picturesque centre of Asolo is in walking distance, it can be reached in a few minutes.

The sumptuous villa was commissioned in 1691 by Cardinal Gian Battista Rubini, bishop of Vicenza. As the nephew of Pope Alexander VIII, Rubini held an important social position and, as such, entertained the era’s most illustrious figures in his sumptuous home. The villa is now owned by the De Lord Rinaldi family, who maintain the prestige of this magical property.

Guests can experience a historic villa but also enjoy the comforts of today. The interior is exemplary of Venetian grace, adored in period stuccos and Venetian plastered walls and painted in delicate pastel tones. Guests can gather in the stylish living room or in the cozier sitting room with its fireplace, both exquisitely decorated with handsome furniture, antiques and period artwork. Enjoy exceptional Venetian gastronomy in the splendid dining room, with charming putti and allegorically decorations overhead. The kitchen is a chef’s delight with a large stove, modern appliances, ample counter space and a breakfast table for eight.

The second floor is home to Cardinal Rubini’s former drawing-room, another living room with exposed wooden beamed ceilings and two beautiful and spacious ensuite bedrooms which feature romantic stucco work behind the plush beds, as well as wall paintings and comfortable sitting areas. The third floor has five further attractive bedrooms.

Additional accommodation for guests is located in an annex building located beside the central villa (please enquire upon booking). This dependance has an independent entrance and consists of a sitting room, a double bedroom, a bathroom and its own terrace.

Although the villa has a total of 8 bedrooms it accommodates maximum 12 adults plus, on request, one or two children.

Outside, you can admire the views in the various sunny and shady dining and sitting areas around the villa. The estate’s large park cascades in terraced gardens, dotted with flowers, sculptures and centuries-old trees. Paths meander to the pool area in the upper part of the garden, hidden by trees and surrounded by loungers and a covered lunch area. For the romantically minded, the estate’s small chapel, the oldest sacellum in Asolo devoted to the Madonna, is the ideal place for a small and elegant wedding.

Beside the villa there are two more houses lived in by the staff and part of the family. They all look out on their own separate garden and therefore in no way impact on your privacy. The outdoor facilities of Villa Rubini with garden, pergola and pool are completely private for our guests.

You can easily venture out on foot to explore picturesque Asolo. Golfers can tee off a mere ten-minute drive away and oenophiles won’t be disappointed with the extensive wine tasting opportunities in the area. If Venice beckons, you can reach the city in around an hour’s drive or 50 minute train ride.

During your stay you can arrange to experience a wine tasting, cooking lessons and tennis and riding lessons. Guided tours to m
