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
We stayed at Villa Foscarini during a hot spell. The AC worked wonderfully well and the terrific pool was very refreshing. Our room, on the southwestern corner of the villa, was exceptionally roomy and quiet. Breakfast was more than adequate. All of the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. We have stayed here before but this was our best stay.
Beautiful location, friendly staff, excellent food and service. Easy to reach, free parking. Breakfast in the orangerie with fresh bread and fruit. Very hygienic, nice cocktails at the bar. Good price quality balanced.
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.
