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.

The apartment was very comfortable, perfect for a family with small children. The satellite TV, DVD player & stereo made life easier when it rained. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were lots of great places to go out for dinner, the Italians all take their children out with them which was a nice change and made our evenings much more enjoyable.
There were lots of places to go and visit close by, we stayed for nearly two weeks and still didn't get to see everything.
We had a great time staying over new year, we even joined in a local new years party which was great fun.
looking forward to coming back soon.

Nice surroundings, beautiful hills, well located to the A4 highway.
We like the fire outside.
You've been very helpful and kind.
We like the fresh eggs !!

Palazzo Rosso Farm

  • Review Submitted: 23-May-2013

We stayed at this lovely place for a week. We were made so welcome by the owners who helped us plan out visits to nearby Vicenza and Padova. They could not have been more helpful to us, and the other visitors staying at the farm.
The situation of the apartments is perfect for travelling to the beautiful cities around. The gardens and pool were well maintained and the apartments clean and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed sitting outside under the old barn for our meals and in the evenings, a lovely area with tables chairs and barbecue.We had everything we needed for a perfect holiday in the Veneto Region which is so interesting and beautiful.
We will definitely be back to Palazzo Rosso.

Amazing stay!!

We had a fabulous week at Palazzo Rosso in September. The apartment had everything we needed and has been renovated to a very high standard. We loved sitting in the barn enjoying a glass of local vino and enjoying the peace and quiet! It was a great base for visiting the surrounding areas, we ventured to Venice, Bolognia and the Lakes- all wonderful days out. We also thoroughly enjoyed the local restaurants and found we didnt need to go as far as Vicenza for amazing food. Although Viceza is a lovely city and well worth an explore. Phil and Sylvie were such fabulous hosts and couldn't do enough to help. They have also produced an excellent guidebook to the area which became our bible! They also put out fresh eggs and fruit from the farm for us- what a treat! Thank you Phil and Sylvie for helping us to have a wonderful holiday!!!! I would highly recommend Palazzo Rosso and hope to go back again one day.

Palazzo Rosso Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 25-Jul-2010
  • Date of Stay: May 2010
We had a wonderful time at Palazzo Rosso. Phil & Sylvie were very kind and made us very welcome. They were there every day to offer advice on trips to the lovely, old cities in the area. Anytime we mentioned an outing, they were able to tell us where to park and things to see. At all times they were at pains to ensure we were comfortable and enjoying our holiday. The fresh eggs every morning were an added bonus.
The courtyard was a lovely area in which to eat or simply sit with a glass of wine and a book. It was ideal for meeting the other guests who were from various countries and who put us to shame with their command of english.
The apartment was very comfortable with all necessary kitchen equipment should you prefer to dine in instead of going to one of the restaurants nearby. The whole building has been adapted very imaginatively from the original 400 year old barn. We saw photos of the work in progress - what an undertaking!
We had a rented car but there were regular buses on the nearby road which was only a short walk away. We loved the animals - the cute dogs, horses and the hens.
We enjoyed ourselves immensely at Palazzo Rosso and have no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends.
