its a real farm with cows, horses,...super for the kids and a nice swimmingpool :-) Breakfast is SUPER, our room cosy and spacieus with a small fridge but no airco, good wifi connection...diner was nice but far too much. The pizzeria in the street is fantastic !!! The only big negative for the farm are the flies sometimes we coudn't sit outside...Our son could have stayed longer but for us a week was maybe a bit too long ! We didn't aspecially like this part of Italy but Padua is nice, also Vicenza, Teolo, Este, Chioggia (beach and warm sea) and small villages in the neighbourhood with nice parties with good food for a cheap price. Actually everywhere we ate it was very good, touristic or not for a good price, only drinks aspecially in Venice are expensive. For Venice I would advice to stay at least a night because its less crowded in the evening and take a vaporetti pass and get lost...I loved Venice !!!
