About Philip Frankland

Hi I am Phil. My wife Silvy and I have owned and managed our 400 acre farm since 1992 when I moved to Italy from the UK. We started to rent out one apartment in 2002 and enjoyed having people around so much that we decided to restore a huge old 17th century barn and farm house which we turned into 6 holiday rental apartments.

Philip Frankland purchased this farmhouse in 1991

Why Philip Frankland chose Vicenza Area

We were lucky enough to inherit Palazzo Rosso Farm from my wife Silvy's family.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Our guests love to come and stay at Palazzo Rosso because they can enjoy the benefits of being close to many beautiful places such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Mantova and Vicenza and at the same time when they want to relax they can sit back and enjoy the farm location and beautiful surroundings at Palazzo Rosso.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment was very comfortable, perfect for a family with small children. The satellite TV, DVD player & stereo made life easier when it rained. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were lots of great places to go out for dinner, the Italians all take their children out with them which was a nice change and made our evenings much more enjoyable.

There were lots of places to go and visit close by, we stayed for nearly two weeks and still didn't get to see everything.

We had a great time staying over new year, we even joined in a local new years party which was great fun.

looking forward to coming back soon.

Marvellous property, lovely hosts, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Palazzo Rosso very much. It is the perfect holiday location. You can easily reach Vicenza, Verona, Padua, Venice and other lovely towns from here. You can use the bikes provided, go for a walk in the hills or just relax at the spacious pool.

The apartment is nicely furnished and the kitchen is very usable. All shared spaces (the pool, the barn, the common rooms) are also very well kept and equipped with BBQ area, games, etc. Phil and Silvy are great hosts, very friendly and extremely helpful. Everything is as wonderful as the pictures are promising. We can thoroughly recommend this property to everyone.

Thank you, Phil and Silvy, for a great stay!

An excellent and beautiful starting point for your excursions in the area of Veneto

  • 5 of 5

Palazzo Rosso Apartments is a beautifully renovated service wing of the old palazzo with an arcaded ground floor terrace where the guests can sit, eat, and enjoy the company or just the view of the mountains in the background. We found our apartment impeccably clean and the fully equipped kitchen allows you to choose between a home-made meal or to explore the many restaurants in the vicinity. Our hosts, Silvy and Phil, were extremely kind and helpful and also able to advice on the multitudes of attractions in and around the area. We spent delightful days at Palazzo Rosso and can only warmly recommend the place.

We just LOVE this place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Palazzo Rosso, and yet again, we had a great holiday! Hosts Phil and Silvy are just fabulous, they go out of their way to ensure you have a great experience whilst based with them! Excellent suggestions of where to visit, the daily fresh eggs and grapes and the best wine cellar this side of Padova! As well as revisiting some wonderful places, we also found lots of new and interesting places. As ever, would recommend to anyone who is thinking of visiting the Vicenza, Venice, Veneto area.

Fantastic Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Good sized apartment, clean and well furnished. Hosts are great - full of tips and advice. Location is great for touring Veneto. Within an hour you have got Venice, Verona, Lake Garda and the mountains. Also Vicenza is a hidden gem. Palazzo Rosso is also brilliant if you just want to relax with good sized pool. Great to eat out on the terrace at night. Use of BBQ was a bonus. You do need a car.

Beautifully relaxed

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Plazzo Rosso for a week in September 2014. The farm was relaxed and quiet. Perfect for a peaceful getaway. The outdoor pool was lovely to relax by and the courtyard outside the apartments was great for chilling out after a days sight seeing.

Silvy and Phil were both friendly and helpful and made us feel really welcome.

The apartment was comfortable for the four of us and had everything we needed.

I would highly recommend Plazzo Rosso, we had a great time staying here.

great location

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly as described, very nice place to stay in or as a base to make visits in a wonderful area (Verona, Venezia, Padova, lake Garda ...). Sylvi and phil welcome you with a thick guide to interesting places and their best spots to eat, everything is aimed to make things comfortable and easy, cycles, pool, baby-foot. We really enjoyed our stay.
