What To Know

- La Corte restaurant is Michelin-starred
- Spend your days sunbathing by the lemon trees, walking along ancient Roman paths and exploring local vineyards
Set in Treviso’s verdant countryside, the quaint and historical Follina gives charm a new name. Set in an 18th century complex in the village’s centre, Villa Abbazia brings a delightful burst of colour, patterns and quirk to any sojourn in the Venetian Prealps.
Part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux group, Villa Abbazia is ideal for those seeking silence and serenity. You’ll feel like you’ve stumbled into a home away from home; rooms are as cosy as can be, with patterned fabrics offering a cottage feel. The elegant Michelin-starred La Corte restaurant offers al fresco dining in the courtyard throughout warmer months, or a fireplace to warm up by in the winter. La Cantinetta bistro makes a lovely, more informal setting, and anyone seeking a mid-afternoon snack can make their way to the Tea Room, offering homemade pastries in a traditional yet chic setting.
When you aren’t relaxing with a tailor-made massage, soaking up sun by the lemon trees or bubbling away in the outdoor Jacuzzi, take on a horseback ride or hike along old Roman paths and explore local vineyards. Don’t miss the Cisterian abbey during your stay here, for a healthy dose of history.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Villa Abbazia just for one night - luckily. The welome by the staff was not friendly, it was pouring with rain but no help with the luggage or where the underground parking was located was offered. We asked beforehand if it was ok to bring our dogs and they were confirming to us how dog-friendly a place they were...they are not. Dogs are not allowed during breakfast or dinner - one lady was even scared of our two little Maltese dogs, ridiculous. While breakfast was included in the pretty expensive price, we didnt have any, as we didnt want to leave our dogs alone in the room - room service would have been an extra EUR 20. Again - ridiculous as we paid close to EUR 300 for a night anyway but that didnt seem enough.
So to be absolutely clear here: we would not stay here one more night, Villa Abbazia is overpriced, overrated, unfriendly, not anywhere close to a hotel of the allegeded standard - avoid.
This hotel is beautiful - every detail is perfect and gorgeous - now I want to check out other Relais & Chateaux properties, since this one is so perfect. Giovanni is a marvelous host - and the food and wine at the restaurant and bistro are exceptional. the staff could not have been more accommodating - and the breakfast spread is plentiful - any single item you might want is available. Wonderful!
We visited this hotel whilst doing a Prosecco tasting tour for our wedding. It is charming, beautiful and peaceful. Everyone that we met as soon as we walked in was warm and kind. The hospitality that you would expect from Italians. The hotel itself is fantastic and beautiful. The gardens are amazing and stunning. Everything from the fresh flowers in the room to the amazing home cooked breakfast was perfect.
I cannot wait to return with my whole family. Fantastic trip and fantastic hotel. Thank you so much.
