La Barchessa di Villa Pisani (Between Verona & Padua)
Veneto - Padua, Italy
La Barchessa di Villa Pisani is located inside the historical Villa Pisani situated in the picturesque countryside of Northern Italy. The Villa was designed by the Architect Andrea Palladio in the XVI century and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site "City of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto". Created as a country house for the Pisani family, nobles from Venice, the Villa stands close to the Guà River. The Villa Pisani contains the monumental and distinctive building “Barchessa”, originally a farm building featuring large arched porticoes. Initially used for agricultural purposes, it comes back to life in the 21st century after careful restoration and complete renovation. Today, the preserved and enhanced “Barchessa” serves as a hotel, restaurant, and event location.
Inside the Barchessa di Villa Pisani, the country house offers 15 exclusive bedrooms which have been refurbished, preserving the original structure and unique decor. Each room has its own charm and beauty featuring artworks by Contemporary Art blending rare elegance with warm comfort. This country house is the perfect place to enjoy quiet rest or to sunbathe by the pool.
