About our home

Note: 18.05.2021 We’d like to inform our guests of our considerations regarding the Covid-19 epidemic. My husband and I are going to be fully vaccinated by the end of July and intend to receive guest after that date. We also require that our guests also be fully vaccinated. In addition, we are applying the standard methods to cleaning to guarantee a correct sanitation.

Our guest house, which is detached from our main house (30 meters or 90 feet), is a gracious country house in the middle of a small court of ancient origin which includes: a master bedroom, a roomy kitchen with a large fireplace, veranda, 2 bathrooms (an en suite master bathroom and half bath without shower) and the possibility of two other beds. There is also a large outdoor lounging area with barbecue.
Located on a 5-acre estate, practicing organic farming, in the heart of the Euganean Hills Regional Park and wine country it's a great place for a relaxing holiday.
Our houise is exactly half way between Padua the city of the Carraresi Family, Giotto and Mantegna and Vicenza the city of Palladio. Venice is 45 minutes away by train, including trip to the train station. It’s also very close to Este, a town with pre-roman roots and Arquà Petrarca, the picturesque village where the master poet, Francesco Petrarca, chose to spend the rest of his life.
It’s surely a place where you can spend pleasant days hiking the beautiful paths of the park, taking scenic bike rides, and sightseeing interesting cities of art, and medieval villages. While, of culinary interest, in the nearby wine cellars you can enjoy wine tasting and in the typical farm tourism restaurants of the Euganean Hills you can find old traditions combined with high quality dishes and reasonable prices.
We suggest you have a vehicle since we’re in the country. Public transportation is available 1 km from the house (not frequent) otherwise there are also coaches from town every hour, which is 3 km away.
