Experience Italian history in all its splendour at Villa Colli Euganei, a spectacular residence that dates back to the mid-16th century, set on a glorious estate with vineyards, woodland and 27-hole golf course.

In an elevated position, this former hunting lodge was created by a Renaissance architect and painter in the mid-1500s and has since undergone a superb restoration with the help of a renowned Parisian interior designer in recent years.

It’s an exquisite residence with four historic double bedrooms across the two main floors as well as three additional bedrooms, allowing up to 12 guests to have the privilege of staying here. There are beautiful living and dining spaces on both the main floors as well as a great kitchen of a professional standard on the lower level.

The beauty of its design is that the two main floors open up to the most magnificent loggias. Enjoy an aperitivo on the upper loggia with far-reaching views, then wander downstairs to dine under the sixteenth century frescoes by the ornate Italian gardens. Guests staying in the summer months also benefit from a jacuzzi-style swimming pool in the villa’s grounds, perfect for cooling off and relaxing around on warm afternoons.  

Take walks through the estate’s woodland, sample wines from the prestigious vines and play golf at the wonderful 27-hole course. Gourmands note, a three-starred Michelin establishment is just a ten-minute drive away.

There is also so much of this captivating part of northern Italy to discover whether viewing Giotto’s frescoes in nearby Padua, admiring other historic residences by boat along the River Brenta, enjoying a spa-day in Abano Terme or spending the day in historic Vicenza, Treviso or Verona.

Then of course there is the magical city of Venice, under an hour by car (or take the speedy train from Padua), followed perhaps by a relaxing day on the beach near the charming fishing port of Chioggia on the Venetian lagoon.

Whether exploring near or far, there is so much enchantment to experience in every way when staying at this magnificent historic home.

Just an hour from Venice, Villa Colli Euganei is set in a stunning estate around a 15-minute drive from Padua, close to the rolling Euganean hills in northern Italy.
As well as the elevated Villa Colli Euganei and its own private upper gardens, the estate also features prestigious vineyards (and the winery’s office and cellars), a medieval castle and six other apartments that are rented out separately.

Guests also benefit from being within walking distance to the estate’s 27-hole golf course. There is a choice of restaurants within a 5 to 10-minute drive, including Le Calandre with three Michelin stars, known throughout the culinary world, just 8km away.

The historic town of Padua (14km) is a delight to explore. Most visitors will head straight to Giotto’s stunning frescoes in Cappella degli Scrovegni (book a tour in advance), then spend time admiring the impressive architecture across the town centre, both modern and old. Visit the vibrant market at Palazzo della Ragione and stroll through some of the town’s elegant gardens. Look out for students cycling across the town too - after all it’s the home to one of Italy’s oldest universities.

Look out for boat tours along the historic waterways of central Padua, which were once thriving with gondolas and longboats. There are also boat trips along the Brenta river, passing magnificent villas and residences along the river’s edge, many which are open to visitors.

Venice is only a 30-minute train ride from Padua on one of the fast services, or around 55km by car from Villa Colli Euganei. Spend a full day or more soaking up the enchanting ambience across one of the most famous cities in the world by foot or boat, marvelling at the incredible architecture and historic beauty. Venice isn’t just about the Rialto bridge and Piazza San Marco, but also its hidden lanes, pretty squares and picturesque bridges. Private tours can be arranged to make the most of your trip to this exquisite city.

Closer to home, a spa-day in nearby Abano Terme can also be organised, a resort famed for its thermal waters which is just a short drive away. The town is home to grand spa hotels and villas, attractive shops, beautiful fountains and green space for pleasant walks.

Other places to visit on days out include the charming town of Vicenza (40km), historic Treviso (70km) with its waterways or head west to experience the romance of Verona (85km). You can even reach the shores of Lake Garda with the captivating lakeside villages of Bardolino and Garda just a ninety-minute drive away.

A little closer, the Venetian lagoon fishing town of Chioggia, is an hour away with its seafood restaurants, fish market, pretty port and large beach with summer lidos at Sottomarina.

Veneto, located in the northeastern part of Italy, is a region that exudes charm, history, and natural beauty. This enchanting destination is home to an array of attractions and unique features that make it a must-visit for any traveller. Veneto's capital, Venice, is perhaps its most famous jewel, renowned for its romantic canals, magnificent architecture, and artistic treasures. The city's iconic St. Mark's Basilica, with its stunning Byzantine design and intricate mosaics, is a sight to behold. A gondola ride through the winding waterways of Venice offers a chance to experience its unparalleled beauty up close.

It’s great being so close to the vibrant and historic town of Padua with plenty to keep all ages occupied.

A boat trip is a fantastic way to see some of the sights of Padua, covering its river and waterways that were once thriving with longboats and gondolas. Look out for picturesque river trips on the nearby River Brenta too, some even travel as far as Venice, stopping off at some superb residences en route.

Padua is a town that is popular with cyclists too – so hire bikes and join in with the locals and students who whizz across town on the cycle paths.

The town also has some beautiful parks and you may even come across a play area near the large arena. Prato Della Valle is a pleasant area with lots of space to run around by the large fountain.

Or spend a fun day out at the waterpark Parco Padovaland, just outside the town centre.

If some of your guests are heading to nearby Abamo Terme for a spa day, then entertain children in the Butterfly House with its woodland fairy trail.

The beaches of the Venetian Lagoon can be reached in around an hour, as can the historic city of Venice itself which will captivate children of every age!
