This superb ground-floor holiday apartment measures 120 m2 and is located within a Venetian villa ("Villa Veneta") dating back to the XVI century. The villa is situated in Este, just 200m from the charming old town.
The first floor of this historic building, with its antique furniture and frescos may be rented for weddings, conferences and other important events. The ground floor on the other hand is split into two independent apartments. Guests may also explore the 6000 m2 of gardens surrounding the building, a haven of rest and relaxation.
This holiday apartment with its exquisite architecture and historic attributes is the perfect place for a cultural get-away.
This Veneto villa (lovingly referred to as "Vigna Contarena"), dates back to the XVI century and was founded by the noble Venetian Contarini family, who also owned vineyards in the area (hence the name of the villa, which means Contarini Vineyard). The present day owner, Mr Caporali, has had restoration work started on the building which was declared a site of historical and artistic interest in 1964 by the Italian government and as such is protected by special legislation.
The quaint town of Este is also well worth a visit. The most important building in town is the Castello Carrarese, built in 1339. A trip to the National Museum with its Etruscan finds is also recommended, as is sampling the areas wonderful wine and food.
The perfect place for fans of walking and bike riding, the villa also makes a great base for visiting Padua, Vicenza and Venice as well as the entire Colli Euganei area with its wealth of spas and golf courses.
Per arrivare a Vigna contarena si consiglia l'uscita Monselice dell'autostrada A13 Bologna Padova. Seguite le direzioni per Este - Mantova. A Este puntate direttamente sul castello, ben visibile ai piedi dei Colli Euganei, sulla sinistra. Arrivati in via Vigo di Torre, tenete le mura del castello sulla vostra destra. Vi è un semaforo in corrispondenza all'accesso al giardini pubblici interni al Castello. Dopo circa 100 metri, in corrispondenza all'ultima torre, Via Guido Negri n.15, vi è un cancello in ferro battuto verde, preceduto da una piazzola adibita a parcheggio. Quello è l'ingresso auto. Attenzione: la villa non è visibile perchè nascosta dal parco. Si vede solo un viale a ridosso delle mura del castello. L'ingresso pedonale è invece da via Cappuccini 11, sul lato Ovest del parco.
