Camera-clickers can’t get enough of Veneto – the province in Italy’s north-east that is as famous for its historic cities (Venice, Verona, Treviso, Padua, Oderzo) as it is for its vineyard-clad hills that produce Prosecco Superiore – the country’s best bubbly. So it’s easy to see why this 16th-century villa ticks the boxes, not least for its sublime setting in Gorgo al Monticano’s countryside.
Overlooking the courtyard, vineyards or gardens, all of the 26 uniquely-styled guest rooms and suites come with statement-making Murano glass chandeliers, beamed ceilings, wooden flooring, and customised furniture. Elsewhere, you’ll find an attractive outdoor pool lined with sun loungers and giant umbrellas, a well-stocked library, bikes, a gym, and a couple of lovely bars for aperitifs and evening happy hours. When your appetite peaks, there are the two signature restaurants – both of which serve exquisite ingredient-driven Italian cuisine and Veneto specialities.
How to Get There
I know Villa Foscarini since 10 years almost and am always pleased to return as it is located perfectly for me. The only thing I am missing the last months is the offer of a variety of restaurants and bars within the complex. I need to say that the closing of Pizzeria Birmhana and La Cantinaccia is a pity. In former times there really was life in the evenings, like on a well visited boulevard, and most visitor were just guests for the evening, not only hotel residents Now these times seem to have ended. The rooms, the service, the pool: Still perfect, especially the breakfast buffet is best in the region.
A short two days stays at this beautiful villa. We really like it, the room was amazing, the breakfast really good, the gardens and the swimming pool very nice. We really liked the restaurant, great food and amazing atmosphere.
The staff was so welcoming, kind and helpful. The property is peaceful, beautiful and well-kept. The breakfast and restaurant was lovely and delicious. Definitely recommend this hotel when you're in the area.
first its beautiful, every spot in the Hotel. (ok maybe the sculptures in corridor are a bit too much)
the rooms are big and well equipped. the garden is also nice. the best part is the service, the stuff is so helpful and kind so you feel home from the minute you enter the lobby.
breakfast is well displayed and tasty.
# i recommend to have a bottle of proseco at the afternoon in the garden.
i would like to come back soon.. next time we will be around .
It’s not really a five star property, however everything is really beautiful. The villa itself, interior, rooms, restaurants and bars etc., and the surroundings are even nicer. It’s far enough from the big cities of Mestre/Venice or Treviso that you get a real feel of italian contryside, but still close enough for day trips to these places.
At the time of our visit, only one restaurant was open, food was decent, good but not at some michelin standard, but all the staff through the whole property was super nice so alltogether a really good value for the money you pay.
