About Giulio da Schio

I am Engineer and Farmer, when young I worked in Austria, Iraq and South Africa, now I produce my own wine Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. They are very good.The mushroom farm in the family caves is rented to another firm. Also the cellar is in a cave , you can see the photo in internet, in summer it is very cold inside there. Most of my time is spent in maintenance and paying taxes.

I was born in 1949 in Venice and have two children, my son Alvise helps me run the hospitality in our villa, I hope also my daughter Costanza will do so pretty soon.

We have two labrador black and cream living in the house with us, but no cats inside the house, lots outside, two hundred or more gold fish and many frogs that make a bit of a row in summer nights. Plenty of owls.

Why Giulio da Schio chose Longare

We never bought our house. My family has been living here for many centuries. The villa is one of three inside a large park that is a national monument, a part is open to the public and a part is only for our guests, it has a large terrace with a beautiful antique wisteria.

Another villa is built in front of the great cave where wine is made from time immemorial, the oldest written reference is from Fazio degli Uberti in 1330.The third and last villa is rented and is partly built inside a natural cave with frescoes by Dorigny on the rock and on the walls.

What makes this apartment unique

Well, it depends on you: if you are 17 you might get bored after a while, it's all countryside with hills and vines. There is a big commercial centre with a Warner Bros cinema at twenty minutes. If you are romantic you will be happy here, mind you: there is no swimming pool, but instead of having a lousy swimming pool, nice only in photographs, I prefer to send guests at 15 minutes from here (30 minutes by bicycle) where there is a beautiful public swimming pool with trees and grass, otherwise we are 1 hour from the sea and one hour from the Alps.
