The Experience

Unsung Asolo, up on its hill, is as elegant now as it was in the days of Freya Stark, Hemingway and Robert Browning (who bought a house here). The church bells still toll on Sundays, the Maggiore fountain still spouts from an aqueduct underground,  the Caffè Centrale still serves glorious gelati. Right above, facing the square, is the first-floor apartment of a two-storey palazzo, a former Venetian summer retreat. It’s luxurious, spacious, peaceful and inviting. Find a big creamy salon with 18th-century frescoes and Marmorino, Persian carpets, French antiques, a dining table that seats six, and a charming kitchen with a pod coffee machine and a stylish Smeg fridge. It’s perfect for a family with older kids, or a group of food and history-keen friends. Follow the Colli Asolani wine route, for vineyards producing superior prosecco and 16th-century Palladian villas like the Villa Barbaro (it’s down the road). Then back to dinner in town – try the atmospheric Al Bacaro or the glorious Cipriani – followed by a soak in your gleaming claw-foot bath.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Elena Benassi

  • Welcome back in time “to one of the most beautiful medieval burgs in Italy”! So says the road sign at the entrance of the Asolo village. For its richness in natural beauty and culture, it is known as the “Pearl of Veneto" since ancient times
  • At the end of the 1400s, Asolo was home and prison to the Queen of Cyprus, Caterina Cornaro, to whom the local castle, open to the public, is named. Enjoy a splendid view of the Castle from the living room of the apartment!
  • Linger over a cappuccino at the historical Café Centrale below the apartment, visit the local museums and walk to the ancient “Rocca”, enjoy a wine tasting, or gaze at the views of the nearby castle amidst the apartment’s authentic 18th century frescoes
  • On weekends the main square hosts a variety of events such as flea markets, open-air plays, festivals and feasts celebrating local excellences: such as food and wine! Discover the Colli Asolani Wine Route, its delicious Prosecco and Cartizze wines
  • A thousand things to see and try: among typical products are oil and honey, in spring-summer wild herbs and the famous ‘white asparagus’, during autumn mushrooms and chestnuts! Enjoy the typical ‘bacari’ and the elegant restaurants, i.e. the Cipriani!
  • For sport lovers, biking is a must! Golf lovers can enjoy the nearby Asolo Golf Club with a spectacular 27-hole course, tennis courts and a fitness center. Possible day trips include Treviso, Padova, Venice, Vicenza, Verona and the Garda Lake
