Description from manager

See above, furthermore the pool house will be available.

Pool house:

A lovely extra bedroom (twin bedroom with shower + WC) has been created in the pool house, therefore a total of 14 people (in 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms) can be accommodated comfortably. In the main house an additional bed is available for a 15th person.

All 7 bedrooms can be made up into either twin or double beds. Please indicate the arrangements of the beds upon booking if different than stated above.

Superbly comfortable country life surrounded by harmony and peace

Villa La Contenta is a traditional Venetian farmhouse nestled on a large estate, one of the most prestigious aristocratic properties of the Veneto, home to a historic villa, a 19th-century english park, an 18-hole golf course and cultivated farmland. The large farmhouse sits within its own private garden with a pool and looks out onto the park of the estate and the Euganean hills.

The farmhouse has been entirely restored, keeping its traditional characteristics all the while updating it to 21st-century standards and amenities. The airy interior has crisp white walls and comfortable living spaces with classy furnishings and open fireplaces. The modern kitchen opens onto the herb garden which guests can make use of for preparing their meals. These can be enjoyed in the inside dining room or in the typical outdoor covered loggia, adjacent to an outdoor living area.

The villa’s seven bedrooms are spread over its three floors. They are feature lovely wooden furniture, attractive fabric prints and newly fitted en-suite bathrooms, some with soaking tubs.

The huge pool is a definitely highlight. This is bordered by a pool house and sunbeds. Beyond this is Villa La Contenta sprawling 6000 m2 garden. This has been carefully planted with an herb garden, roses, lilacs, iris and calendula as well as a variety of trees including poplars, walnuts, hazelnuts, figs, cherries and apples.

The villa has a charging point for electrical cars (no extra fees).

This historic estate reaveals its delights slowly and elegantly. Leaving the bustling Venetian activities behind you, the drive leads you on a simple country road through fields which melt into the natural park of the Euganean hills. You will soon discover the historical main villa on top of one of the hills, seemingly shielding the elegantly structured farm buildings, the beautifully restored farmhouse Villa La Contenta offered here and a wonderfully romantic 19th century garden folly reminiscent of a Palladian temple (The Temple / all featured in our portfolio). The estate has been in the hands of an ancient Counts's family since the 13th century, well over 700 years.

This is one of the great Venetian properties. The 150 hectare estate consists of a Venetian villa, a 19th century English park, a skillfully designed 18 hole golf course and cultivated farmland with several farm buildings.

All this only 20 km south of Padua, within easy reach of the famous historic villas of the Veneto, many of them built by the great Italian architect Andrea Palladio, as also the cities of the Veneto and the Lake district.

Additional amenities: 3 bicycles, 3 mini safes, Airport distance:Venice 68 km, American coffee machine, Baby bed and high chair, Dog welcome, Electric kettle, Food processor, Golf, Iron and ironing board, Loggia, Ping Pong Table, Pool 16 x 8m / salt water pool, Private Chef, Stove with large oven, Washing machine and dryer
