I have to admit we were invited to a 2 day birthday feast - so we arrived in a very posivitive mood to meet friends and party.
Well, it is special to stay in a Rokoko villa built in 1743 - a real time travel. Uneven marble floors, chrystal chandeliers, ancient paintings and open fireplaces (for heating purposes). One really can imagine how Guiseppe Verdi has spent the nights after his disastrous premier of 'La Traviata' in the 'La Feniche' theater in Venice, whe he jumped in a carriage to drown his sorrows in his friends villa.
You must not expect 5star room and bath amenities, much more a hide away from 21st century stress to inhale a quiet aura of passed times. But everything was very clean and good being taken care of. Warm water and wifi included...
The park is gorgeous with unbeliveable trees, the pool is great and the service is very Italian - friendly and attentive but it helps if you speak (a little) Italian. Breakfast is excellent and beverages as well, wine and coctails - the sgroppino is a must!
If you are a golfer you have to play the Codulmer golf course, right behind the pool. In a beautiful seeting with lot of trees, sometimes pretty narrow but not too long, the greens were in perfect shape, quick and very true. At #2 you can approach the green over a reminiscent wall of ancient times, pretty spectacular.
Although Venice is close by try out Treviso. Wrongfully underestimated it has loveley piazzas and a lot of canals (yes!), paired with great trattorias and local bars, also shopping is much more relaxed and not crowded at all.
Even if you are in a trip to Venice it's worth a stay as there is a train station with connection into the city every 30 minutes. We definitely will come back
