About the property

Refined Bright Attic Within The Heart Of Padova Superb Views On Hidden Gardens

This elegant attic has recently been restored by a famous architect. It is furnished with antiques and the exposed beams of the ceiling make a unique warm and relaxing atmosphere. The apartment is on the third and last floor of a fifteenth century palace located in the heart of medieval Padua, very close to the squares and places of artistic interest. Its position in Padua’s restricted traffic area makes this apartment unique for peace and quiet. The attic is flooded with light and the windows overlook lush secret gardens. Its 85 square meters, consist of a bedroom, a bathroom with shower-bath and Jacuzzi, a large living room, a kitchen with fully equipped terrace overlooking the Duomo, a laundry room, and large closets. The large sofa in the living room can be used as an extra bed, but please bear in mind that the windows in the living room do not have curtains but only external motorised sun blinds. This apartment is very well isolated from the outside extreme temperatures. The roof has been built with the ventilation system and the windows are double glazed with thermal glass. A centralised system of air conditioning and the under floor heating guarantee the best comfort in every season. The centralised vacuum net makes this apartment very easy to clean and it garantees a spot less maintenance.

Beautiful Spacious Attic

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in this Padua attic apartment. We loved the spacious living room, the large well-equipped eat-in kitchen and the roomy bedroom. The furniture was very comfortable and included many antiques. The apartment is decorated beautifully, like someone lived there full time. We enjoyed the terrace which had a view of the Duomo and clock tower, so nice. The bathroom was also roomy with a tub/shower combination.

The apartment is well located in central Padua, just steps away from squares with markets and cafes, lots of restaurants and shops. Our hostess was kind, gracious and easy to communicate with. There is so much to do in Padua that we need to visit another time. When we do, we will stay in this attic apartment again!

Thank you so much!

A wonderful stay in Padova

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment in the centre of Padova for 10 nights in June 2017. It is a bit of a climb but the 76 steps are well worth it for the tranquility and wonderful views from the terrace of il duomo & surrounding rooftops. The owners welcomed us and had a bottle of wine chilling. We later got a little basket of delicious cherries picked from their garden. The aparment is in a beautiful old building within minutes walk of the main piazze. It is spotlessly clean, well furnished & has a very well equipped kitchen - all you could ever need is to hand. The livingroom, bathroom & bedroom are very large and the sun terrace opens off the kitchen - a great spot for breakfast & evening drinks! We were there during the recent heatwave & the airconditioning was essential. It is very effective & quiet. Indeed that was the overall impression of the apartment - an island of peace & tranquility in a bustling, lively university city - not full of tourists. There is also a great selection of books & magazines in the house. Padova is a wonderful city - great food arcades, piazze which house markets during the day & then are turned into vibrant outdoor bars and restaurants at night. We bought a Padova Card & used it to visit museums, travel on the trams and visit the Capella dei Scrovengni - a must see when visiting this beautiful city. We also took the train to Treviso, Verona and to Venice for lunch! Venice is less that half an hour by train & our fare cost less than 9 euros each return. Please remember to validate your tickets on buses, trains and trams - in a rush to catch the train to Venice we forgot to do so and were fined 30 euros! Padova is the perfect city in which to spend time and this is the perfect apartment in which to stay. We hope to return and would stay here again in an instant. Thanks again to the owners for their attention to detail and for proving the perfect place to stay in their wonderful city.

Great place to experience Italy

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well located in a charming part of Padova. This is one of the best places we stayed over the years. It offers comfort, privacy, security, appointed furniture and even reading materials. Morena and Piero are very professional and warm people and they will surprise you with wonderful welcoming gifts.

A wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many apartments successfully in Italy, and this is by far the best. The rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. The kitchen is extremely well equipped; the abundance of wonderful markets in the piazze nearby made it unnecessary to go out for meals. The laundry facilities are excellent and easy to manage. The heating and air conditioning system is in excellent condition. Morena has set up the apartment to include everything guests need, even for a fairly long stay.

The only drawback to the apartment—a hardship only for people with physical disabilities-- is the necessity of climbing the stairs to the attic floor.

The apartment is ideally located in the centre of the old city, which hums with student life from the university.

Morena made us feel more like personal guests than renters. She was extraordinarily hospitable, greeting us upon arrival and providing whatever information and assistance we needed throughout our stay.

Padova is a very interesting city. It was an important center from the X century b.c. of paleoveneti civilisation and a rich city also during Roman times. After a short collapse it had a very flourishing medieval age which culminated with the da Carrara signoria of the 14th century. Its University is the oldest in Europe after Bologna. Here is a list of what you must see:

Palazzo della Ragione

Cappella degli Scrovegni frescoed by Giotto

The university anathomic theatre

Il Battistero

The Basilic of S. Antony

The botanical garden (the oldest in Europe)

The main squares to see are: Piazza delle Erbe (the herbs square), Piazza della Frutta (the fruits square), Piazza dei Signori (the lords square).

The centre of Padua is full of food shops (the local morning marked is only 5 minute walk from the apartment), shops of all kinds, bars and restaurants. In the apartment you will find a list of suggestions by the owner.
