Villa Marcello has always been a private home, a place of glamour and elegance; always open to convivial pleasure and at the same time a warm welcoming home. Count Vettor Marcello and his family live here now, happily opening its doors to those who wish to appreciate it’s refined splendor. During their stay, the guests will be able to visit all the main villa and the park, accompanied by the owners. The villa is a beautiful and untouched example of renaissance architectural balance. The enormous 16th century complex in Palladian style is structured with a central main building which is flanked on both sides by arcaded wings (one of which houses the ‘Barchessa’ apartment) which frame an ‘Italian’ style garden with a fountain, Greek mythical statues, flower beds, lawns and bushes. The park (70.000 m2) is fully fenced and rich in wonderful plants and is pleasantly framed by long rows of hornbeams, lime trees and oak trees, which meet in front of a lovely dove cote, a chapel and a large fish pond with running water. Other areas consist of woods with century old trees and numerous statues depicting realistic and fairy-like animals and humans. Close to the main building, in a garden separated from the main park and reserved for the gests, there is a swimming pool (9 x 6 m, 1,60 m deep, open May 1st through October 1st) surrounded by oleanders, roses and hydrangeas.
