An exceptionally romantic setting

The romanticism of this house makes it truly exceptional. The playfully and charming small temple was built in 1822 in pure neoclassical style. It was conceived as a place to which to retire - not necessarily alone - and true to its purpose it stands in one of the most beautiful spots of the park whithin a slightly sloping clearance which blossoms with poppies and daisies in spring.

The front of the house, as with a real temple, is an open but protected space where guests have their meals when the weather is fine. The main facade of house was restored in spring 2009, the interior decoration received a facelift at the same time. The two lateral facades have been restored in 2010. Guests should be aware that the house is fairly isolated within the park.

Guests are welcome to use the pool of the golf club. The pool lies within the estate next to the golf clubhouse, approx. 100 m from The Temple. The pool is open from beginning of June to mid of September (please consider that it might open later or close earlier according to the weather). It is closed on Tuesdays and with bad weather.

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. 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 with this wonderfully romantic 19th century garden folly reminiscent of a Palladian temple, a skillfully designed 18 hole golf course and cultivated farmland with several farm buildings now turned into comfortable and well-equipped rentals (Villa La Contenta, Casa Linda and Astor / all featured in our portfolio).

All this 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: 1 mobile air conditioning apparatus, Airport distance:Venice 68 km, American coffee machine, Dog welcome, Electric kettle, Golf, Iron and ironing board, Mini safe, Pool: 10 x 20m / shared pool, Stove with oven, Washing machine and dryer
