Description

Casa del Prete 4 sleeps

On a peaceful corner of the estate, a little detached from its daily activities, lies the two-storied Casa del Prete, once house to the castle priest and now an ideal accommodation for 4 people. Its stone façade and the private garden, planted with olive trees and oleander bushes reminds of a Tuscany view and invites you to spend delightful breaks outdoor.

On the ground floor there is a large living room, and just on its right you enter into another bright sitting room decorated with precious antique details.

Next to the sitting room there are the dining room and an adjoining kitchen, that through a door looks into the hall, where you can see the staircase that climbs to the first floor. On the left of the hall you also find a first bathroom. On the first floor there are the two bedrooms: 1 double and 1 twin. The double one has and ensuite bathroom. Both bedrooms are comfortable and vibrant with lively colors, recalling the greenery outside of the windows.

About the property

La Montecchia

If you are thinking of a genuine holiday in the Italian countryside, and at the same time you want to be close to the most important cities of art of Veneto, Montecchia is the right place to be. Nestled among cultivated fields, vineyards and hills and resembling a medieval village, this historical estate belonging to the noble family Emo Capodilista lies in a strategical position between Padova (20 km) and Vicenza (23 km), while Venice and Verona can be easily reached by train from Montegrotto (12 km). The main activity of La Montecchia is wine production, in this field a steady pursuit of excellence has won the estate several important awards over the years. Only recently La Montecchia has become an exclusive spot for holidays: the breathtaking villa Emo Capodilista was completely refurbished in 2011 and turned into a luxury rental for 12 people; the medieval castle is composed of a stunning apartment for 6 and and a suite for 2. And finally, the former houses of the farmworkers and the priest living in the estate were redecorated in 2010 to make comfortable holiday accommodations for 2 and 4 people: Casa del Camino (2 sleeps), Casa di Nando (4 sleeps), Casa del Prete (4 sleeps) and Casa di Maria (4 sleeps) make the ideal place where to start hunting down all must-sees in Veneto, and at the same time the invite to a relaxing break when you will be tired of sightseeing! In fact, every apartment benefits of its own private garden and there are two pools that our guests can access at no extra charge: a new bathing lake with relax area (chairs, sunbeds, sun umbrellas) has just been built near the office of the estate. Another small above ground pool, also with equipped relax area, is located right behind the estate office and is especially appreciated by children.

The Olympic pool (25m x10m) by the golf club is also available for our guests, who can use it for free.

Why Giordano Emo Capodilista chose Padova area

At first sight you will perceive that La Montecchia is a rare pearl in Veneto, and its uniqueness lies in the perfect, harmonious merge of past and present. The historical property, still belonging to the same noble family Emo Capodilista since 15th century, preserves the splendour of the past, embodied by the magnificent Villa Emo Capodilista on the top of the hill and by the Castle on the other side of the road. But at the same time, the estate has kept the pace with modern times, in a constant, successful effort of improving its products (the Montecchia wines are worldwide known and pluri-awarded) and its accommodations: the villa has been recently refurbished and restored and it is now a beautiful location for luxury holidays and special events, while the apartments are carefully looked-after by a designer. Since last year the estate is completely autonomous in that electricity is provided by solar panels.

What makes this cottage unique

La Montecchia - Villa Emo Capodilista offers to its guests comfortable and stylish accommodations and many amenities: first of all, we recommend a tasting of the excellent and pluri-awarded wines of the estate, as well as a tour of the cellar and a plunge in the huge pool of the golf club. If you are fond of golf, you will be happy to know that our guests are entitled to special rates at La Montecchia golf. And after an intense day, you can treat yourself by dining at La Montecchia restaurant, awarded 1 Michelin star and one of the best restaurants in Veneto, also at walking distance from the apartments.

Another main advantage of this property is its enviable strategic position: set in a peaceful area of Veneto and far from traffic, and yet still close to the most popular cities of art in Veneto. Padova (14 km) and Vicenza (25 km) are within easy reach, and Venice can be visited on a daily trip just by taking a train from Montegrotto (8 km). Montegrotto and Abano are also popular for their hot springs, if you want to take a relaxing break from sightseeing, we will be happy to recommend you the best spas and thermal pools.
