The
Experience

Fling back the shutters at La Montecchia and be greeted by a view that has changed little in 400 years – an ancient hamlet complete with castle and ornate hunting lodge, overlooked by vineyards. The rustic properties here – mostly workers’ cottages – have been simply and elegantly brought up to date, preserving their clean lines and a sense of light and space. Bright rugs sit on burnished wooden floors or gleaming tiles, bedrooms and living areas are comfortable and unfussy, and kitchens and bathrooms are modern, neat and clean. Each has outdoor space – heaven to sit in the shade of a tree and glug the estate’s prize winning wines. If you need advice, Guerrina, who meets and greets, can be found in the busy estate wine shop – she can also arrange a supermarket run before you arrive. There’s an open air pool to cool off in and a top notch golf course next door with its own Michelin-starred restaurant. While you’ll have the estate to yourself in the evenings, expect to notice the hustle and bustle of one of the region’s best wine producers during the day.

The neighbourhood

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!
