Description from manager
In the old town
this property is an elegant apartment located on the first floor of a historical palazzo in the centre of Asolo. The apartment overlooks the magnificent Queen Cornaro's Castle and the main square of the town. It measures 200 sqm and has no elevator. Set in the main square of Asolo, this perfectly restored property has maintained its charme intact thanks to the 18th century frescoes and due to its unique pieces of furniture. At the ground floor of the building the famous "Caffe Centrale" animates the central Piazza of the town. Due to its position, the apartment could be slightly noisy.
Asolo is a spectacular medieval village, also known as the 'Pearl of Veneto', which offers a variety of cultural and artistic amenities in an area with an outstanding natural beauty: for centuries it has been frequented by important people, such as Gabriele D'Annunzio, Eleonora Duse, Giosue Carducci, Robert Browning, Ernest Hemingway, Henry James, Hugo von Hofmansthal, Freya Stark, Arnold Schoemberg and many others. Asolo is close to some of the most beautiful world-famous Palladian Villas and is strategically located near important cities such as Treviso, Venice, Padua, Vicenza and Verona. Thanks to its fine cuisine and excellent wines (don't miss the 'Colli Asolani Wine Road'), it is also the perfect destination for wine and great-food lovers. Restaurants nearby: Villa Cipriani (simply amazing!); La Terrazza Al Sole; Hosteria Ca' Derton; Osteria della Giarrettiera.
A bit of history...
For centuries the famous "Caffe Centrale", at the ground floor of the same building, has been frequented by illustrious figures, such as Gabriele D'Annunzio, Eleonora Duse, Giosue Carducci, Robert Browning, Ernest Hemingway, Henry James, Hugo von Hofmansthal, Freya Stark, Arnold Schoemberg and many others.
Since 1796, the Palazzo, has been hosting a cultural circle named "Societa del Casino", some of his members took part in a conspiracy against Napoleon in 1808.
More recently, in the 20th century, Hemingway used to be in Asolo after World War II, mostly between 1948 and 1954; in that period he met countess Adriana Ivancich and wrote "Across the River and into the Trees". He had previously lived in Veneto, in 1918, where he was helping our soldiers during World War I, particularly in Schio, Fossalta and Bassano. Thanks to his efforts during the Great War, in 2012 the Comune of Fossalta has inaugurated a path (http://www.**********************) aimed to creating a 'historical memory' of the places where Hemingway stood during that terrible period, and where he was seriously injured.
Together with its spectacular surroundings, Asolo is a must-see destination set in one of the most interesting historical and artistic parts of the Veneto region. In the sixteenth century, with Veneto's architect Andrea Palladio (1508 - 1580) a new type of mansion was born: the temple-villa, like the nearby Villa Barbaro in Maser.
The 'Barco della Regina Cornaro' in Altivole it is worth mentioning. This was the country residence of the former Queen of Cyprus Caterina Cornaro and was built at the end of the 15th century, adorned with beautiful gardens, hunting grounds, canals and watergames.
Possignano is also very easy to reach: it is the home of the neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova, where his birthhouse and the 'Gipsoteca' temple can be visited in a truly inspirational environment.
Castelfranco Veneto is renowned for being the birthplace of the famous painter Giorgione. Within its spectacular medieval walls, the 'Museo Casa Giorgione' allows visitors to explore the history and evolution of the town under the influence of this artist.
Bassano del Grappa is a medieval city, well-known for its picturesque wooden bridge, the ceramic stores and the wine bars where it is possible to taste the traditional distillate of the city, 'grappa'. This alcoholic beverage has been made in the town's distilleries since 1779, when the 'Nardini' factory (still one of the most renowned, along with 'Poli') was founded. Besides its centenary-old distilleries, the city is mostly renowned for Palladio's 'Ponte Vecchio' (Old Bridge), probably one of the most famous symbols of Italy: architect Andrea Palladio was commissioned to design it in 1569. Bassano is also noteworthy for the 'Museo Civico', one of the most ancient in Veneto, hosting over 500 paintings from the 13th Century to nowadays.
A few minutes away from Bassano stands Marostica with its stunning human chess game. This famous game is the ultimate expression of a local tradition and a magical moment for this town, that is also known as the 'City of Chess'.
