The
Experience

Imagine the views: vineyards, a golf course, a starred restaurant, a rustic hamlet, and a bustling winery below. On the hill opposite, peeping through the trees, an exquisite 16th-century villa. Warm friendly Guerrina, Elena and Marilisa welcome you and introduce you to your castle, elevated and secluded. The tower is yours: massive, medieval. Enter a lovely wide hall, then a kitchen, vaulted, well-equipped and with a big dining table. Upstairs, a sitting room with dark wood floors and pale salmon walls, and a double bedroom and bathroom. Up again: two bedrooms and a bathroom. Castellana is the ideal escape for golfers or wine lovers, with its handsome beams, gleaming old dark doors, wide planked floors, huge beds (two modern), antique rugs, and the odd ancestral portrait. Castellana can expand to form Castellana Nobile for larger groups. Taste the wines, swim in the pools, tour the family’s villa, cruise down the Riviera del Brenta, head for the Eugenean hills. And visit Venice.

Local points of interest from Marilisa Dalla Massara

  • The wine produced in the estate has won several important awards: do not miss a free tasting and a visit to the collection of rural tools, to get a taste of real Veneto countryside!
  • The 24 hole golf course La Montecchia is one of the most renowned in Veneto and the guests of Castellana are entitled to special discounts.
  • A tip for gourmets: the one Michelin star Montecchia restaurants is a few hundred meters away from Castellana; try the "Menù degustazione" at a special price!
  • Visit the stunning Abbey of Praglia, where monks still live and make honey and natural cosmetics.
  • On a rainy day, you can pop in in one of the nearby spas, in Abano Terme or Montegrotto, and cuddle yourself with a massage and a reinvigorating bath in thermal water.
  • Padova, a medieval jewel, is just 15 min drive from Castellana: make sure you do not miss the city wonders, such as Giotto's Scrovegni Chapel, the Palazzo della Ragione, or the university. Mix with locals and shop at the market in Piazza delle Erbe!
