Just an hour's drive from Venice, this hilltop villa offers panoramic countryside views. While the traditional decor and antique furniture may not be to everyone's tastes, we think the interiors are charming in their own right. But with three floors and steep steps here, it will be difficult for guests who struggle with stairs. The top-floor main suite is one of our favourites – we can't resist the wooden ceilings or that stone bathtub – but the sun-kissed terrace and private pool are close seconds. Day trips are easy with Treviso and Padova within driving distance, but if you'd prefer to stay closer to home, Asolo is a twenty-minute walk away and has artisan shops and restaurants.
Home truths: *The pool is available between May and October, and can be heated on request. It’s not gated, so children between 1 and 7 years old are not permitted. *Set across three levels, this home won’t suit guests with limited mobility. It’s sixteen steps to the first floor and fifteen to the main suite on the second level. *Air conditioning is only available in the living area and bedrooms. *The beds are made up of two single mattresses pushed together. *A gardener maintains the house and grounds. Behind the villa is another home belonging to the owner, but nobody currently lives there. *A first dinner, daily housekeeping, and basic grocery shop are included here. *We highly suggest hiring a car in this location. There’s parking for two cars.
