A unique Italy stay in the grounds of the UNESCO-listed Villa Pisani - includes lovely perks
For those who fancy a romp around Italy’s spellbinding Vicenza province, it doesn’t get chicer than this impeccably restored former farmhouse just 10 minutes from the town of Lonigo. The setting is absurdly beautiful: in the park of Villa Pisani - the UNESCO-listed masterpiece built for the noble Pisani family by revered architect Andrea Palladio in the 1500s.
There are just 15 uniquely styled guest rooms, all of which come with original features and specially commissioned artwork. Elsewhere, you’ll find an attractive outdoor pool, a modern gym, stroll-worthy gardens, and a Cleto Munari-designed bar for anytime cocktails and Italian and international wines. Also worthy of your attention is the signature restaurant where award-winning Chef Vincenzo Di Grande serves up delicious gourmet cuisine - and even offers cookery lessons in his kitchen.
Built between 1544 and 1545, Villa Pisani is one of Andrea Palladio’s finest works. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 (along with the City of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto), its 144 rooms house a huge amount of 18th- and 19th-century artworks - most famously Gianbattista Tiepolo’s The Apotheosis of the Pisani Family. The enchanting gardens feature a valuable citrus fruit collection, flower-filled greenhouses, and a famous maze.
