6 self catering apartments, 10 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps a maximum of 29

The 6 apartments are built into the south facing wing of a 17th century Italian Villa and 400 acre working arable farm called Palazzo Rosso (the Red Palace).

Places to visit: The historic town Vicenza is only 17km from the farm & there is a cycle track to the centre for approximately 9km. The Berici hills are only 2km from the farm, where there are many hiking & biking tracks as well as an area famous for climbing called Lumignano.

Hi I am Phil. My wife Silvy and I have owned and managed our 400 acre farm since 1992 when I moved to Italy from the UK. We started to rent out one apartment in 2002 and enjoyed having people around so much that we decided to restore a huge old 17th century barn and farm house which we turned into 6 holiday rental apartments.

Philip Frankland purchased this farmhouse in 1991

We were lucky enough to inherit Palazzo Rosso Farm from my wife Silvy's family.

Our guests love to come and stay at Palazzo Rosso because they can enjoy the benefits of being close to many beautiful places such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Mantova and Vicenza and at the same time when they want to relax they can sit back and enjoy the farm location and beautiful surroundings at Palazzo Rosso.

Palazzo Rosso, highlight of the Venetian villas

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 09-Jul-2009
  • Date of Stay: May 2009
Palazzo Rosso proved an ideal choice for the 10-day tour of Palladian villas we had come for. By the time a week had gone by, we realized there were plenty of other things to do in the area: take the bicycle path to Vicenza or discover the backroads (hardly any traffic if you keep off the main road), hike in the Berici Hills ( we tried one tour guided by an Italian guide book we found in the apartment, half guessing what important trail marks the Italian words meant- but we made it!) Coming back from our tours in the evening, it was nice to take a dip in the pool and relax under the arcades, chatting with other guests staying at Palazzo Rosso. Phil and Silvy were always bustling about somewhere and willing to answer our questions. Thankyou for the fresh eggs ( if you boil them, the yolks separate to form little yellow balls- weird!) We admired the tremendous task Phil and Silvy completed in transforming the palazzo wing into apartments that combine traditional masonry and woodwork with modern furnishing. A truly pleasant place to spend a vacation. Recommendable for all kinds of people looking for a holiday home in the area.

Owner's Response: We are always happy that our guests enjoy there time here on the farm. Cornelia and family brought their own bikes with them (although we have bikes available for our guests to use) and spent most of their time off the beaten track, which is one of the best pastimes.

Ciao

Phil and Silvy

A beautiful property, very high spec - from the well finished and comfortable interior to the spacious grounds and stunning pool! Very clean throughout! Sylvie and Phil were very friendly and attentive hosts, offering practical advice on tourist attractions and on local restaurants. The children loved the pool, the bikes and the farm animals! The property was easy to find with directions given on the website and was a great base for numerous destinations. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our week at Palazzo Rosso!

Phil and Silvy work hard to ensure that everything you need is available to make your stay at Palazzo Rosso as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The accommodation on a working farm is clean and well equipped with a great pool a few steps away. The property is well situated with Vicenza, Venice, Padua, Verona and beautiful lake Garda an easy drive away. We managed all of these as well as some of the smaller villages within a week, but ideally we would have spent more time there to take advantage of the pool and relaxing atmosphere and the great cycling opportunities. We have never encountered such friendly and knowledgable hosts and they made us feel very welcome and gave us some great ideas for our days out (as well as providing the best eggs I have ever tasted!). I would highly recommend the property to couples, singles and families who want something more than a bland hotel or apartments. As long as you are prepared to drive a little the place is brilliant, we would happily return.

Palazzo Rosso Farm, Longare, Italy

  • Review Submitted: 11-Jun-2013

The welcome of our hosts Phil and Silvy along with the facilities and ambience at Palazzo Rosso Farm all went to help make our stay unforgettable and it was with deep regret that we found our last day arrive too quickly. The weather and location added to our stay and we would definitely recommend this venue to anyone considering a self catering holiday with all the comforts and most of the facilities of home.

Palazzo Rosso is Divine

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 20-Nov-2011
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2011
After a wonderful but somewhat hectic week in Rome, arriving here was like a sigh of relief.
The villa has been beautifully restored. Our apartment was absolutely charming, beyond comfortable with all amenities provided. We quickly settled in and it became our home away from home.
We enjoyed the country setting immensely. Only a short drive away we found everything and anything needed. Groceries, local wine, gasoline, restaurants and take away establishments. And the A4. A central location to many of the sites we wanted to see in this lovely corner of Italy; Lake Garda (and the Bardolino Wine Festival), the breathtaking Dolomites, charming Venice, Vincenza, and Verona.
Palazzo Rosso was a welcome place to return to at the end of our daily explorations and we enjoyed visiting with the other guests, comparing experiences and sharing tips for the days ahead.
Phil, Sylvie, the children, even the dogs are charming and enthusiastic hosts. We enjoyed the daily visits and appreciated all the advice.
Only one disappointment; that we didn’t build enough time into our stay at Palazzo Rosso to just relax and enjoy all it has to offer. But we will! When we return!

The Villa Palazzo Rosso is located near the village of Longare, in the hamlet of 'Ponte di Lumignano' at the foot of the Berici Hills (400 meters high). The local area is perfect for hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing. There are many local restaurants and wine producers where guests can enjoy the fantastic local dishes & taste the local wine. There is a cycle track which starts in Longare and winds all the way to the centre of Vicenza (14 kms).

There are many famous Palladian villas in the area which people from all over the world come to visit.

Palazzo Rosso Farm is a perfect starting point from which to visit all of the most famous historic cities such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Vicenza, Mantova, Ferrara as well as Bassano, Marostica and Asolo. All of these locations are well within and hours drive from the farm.

Other local attractions which our guests enjoy include wine tasting in the many local wine cellars, a Grana Padana cheese factory and shop and a local organic Olive oil prooducer.

Other Activities: Rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking in the 400 metre high Colli Berici hills
