Villa Capodilista was built in 1568 as a hunting pavilion by the painter and architect Dario Varotari, a pupil of Paolo Veronese. The frescoes in the rooms depict scenes from mythology and the family’s history. In order to blend in with the hilly landscape, a perfectly symmetrical building was designed with a square plan. Each façade has loggias on two floors. The indoor layout of the rooms follows the same symmetrical pattern. The rooms on the ground floor and first floor are connected by four flights of stairs. The essentially square structure of the Italian style garden is interrupted by semi-circular extensions, whilst the surrounding area contains a circular private swimming pool. The villa is furnished with prestigious antique pieces that are accompanied by precious wall hangings and ornaments of great artistic value. The villa has satellite TV, CD and DVD player, fast internet connection WIFI, air conditioning in some of the bedrooms and a laundry room with washing machine. Includes daily cleaning service and preparation of breakfast, lunch and supper. There are also two spacious covered garages. Opposite the entrance gate to the villa is a farm which produces high quality wines and also has an 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, a swimming pool and a Michelin star restaurant. The nearest town with services is Selvazzano Dentro (approx. 1 Km), whilst the center of Padua is 9 Km away. There are many places of cultural interest within easy reach of the villa, including Padua (9 Km), Venice (55 Km), Vicenza (40 Km), and the thermal resort of Abano (6 Km). Also worth visiting are the Palladian villas and the Brenta Boats, panoramic motorboats that travel along the Riviera on the Brenta river from Padua towards Venice and vice versa, combining art and history, following in the wake of the ancient “Burchielli” (typical Venetian boats used to transport passengers which had a large wooden cabin and three or four finely worked and decorated balconies. They were used in the 1700s by wealthy Venetians to travel to their country villas from the city).
