Two fabulous apartments in a castle: swimming pool, golf, winery - Castellana apartment 6 sleeps



Updated: 22-Feb-2016
5 bedroom apartment in a venetian castle surrounded by vineyards

La Montecchia castle is only a part of the huge and amazing complex including the beautiful villa Emo Capodilista, the wine estate, the vineyard, the 4 holiday cottages and the golf club with its 1 Michelin star restaurant. The castle dates back to Middle Ages and it was renovated in 1930. Strategically set on the top of a hill, the ancient building overlooks the surrounding countryside and appears impressive and detached from the daily activities of the estate. The old massive tower and the fortified structure lends to the castle the magnificence of a Medieval court. Part of the building has been until a few months ago home to a independent and lively cinema school, and some rooms are the private residence of Count Emo Capodilista, the owner of the estate. Another wing of the building has been recently renovated to obtain two beautiful holiday accommodations: the apartments Castellana and Castellana Nobile occupy three floors and can sleep respectively 6 and 8/10 people, thus making the ideal place for a family stay in Veneto.

The estate has two swimming pools: a newly built bathing lake with relax area (chairs, sunbeds, sun umbrellas) and a small above ground pool, also with equipped relax area, located right behind the estate office and especially appreciated by children.

Besides, our guests can freely enter the big swimming pool (25m x10m) by the golf club is also available for our guests.

Be part of the history!

Wow! We enjoyed this place so much! It is beautiful and quiet. It is loaded with history you can feel. The pictures and maps on the walls are worth studying, it’s like a museum. The service was excellent, thanks to the hosts: Helena for her kindness and Guerrina for teaching us how to cook polenta without destroying the kitchen!

La Montechhia is well located between Venezia and Verona/ Lake Garda. The Euganean hill parc nearby is excellent for cycling and wine tasting. Padova, the closest city, worth’s visiting and is far less crowded than the usual tourist choices. Don’t miss the cruise on Fume and caffè Pedrocchi!

From the Owner

At a first sight you will perceive that La Montecchia is a rare pearl in Veneto, whose 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 have been completely redecorated in 2010. Since 2012 the estate is completely autonomous in that in that electricity is provided by solar panels.

From the Owner

La Montecchia offers to its guests comfortable and stylish accommodations and many amenities: first of all, a tasting of the excellent and pluri-awarded wines of the estate is definitely recommended, 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 easily be visited on a daily trip by taking a train from Montegrotto (8 km). Montegrotto and Abano are also popular for their hot springs. If you’d like to take a relaxing break from sightseeing, we will be happy to recommend you the best spas and thermal pools. Further must-sees are just a few kilometers away: the Palladian villas, fox example, an unmissable destination for all art and architecture lovers; the well preserved medieval towns of Montagnana, and Este; the castles of Monselice and Cervarese, and the historical hamlets Arquà Petrarca and, further away, Asolo.

  • La Montecchia is primarily a wine estate. The month of September and early October are the time of the grape harvest, one of the most exciting moments of the year for a wine-producing estate. They start early, usually at 8 am, and sometimes finish as late as 11 pm. We apologise for any disturbance this might cause our guests.
