We stayed at the converted bakery for 11 nights. The outside of the property is adjacent to the road in the centre of Ponte de Barbarano. Inside is a large grassed area with the owners house to the side. On the far side is an events venue open onto the grass, all within the property. We were warmly greeted by Silvana and made very welcome. We were treated like one of the family. The apartment is adequately furnished and is comfortable. For me, quietness is important so I was surprised that a wedding party had been arranged one night at the events venue. Silvana was very apologetic for the noise. Also there were four large fan units for the air conditioning for the adjacent shop, restaurant and office that form part of the group of buildings, adjacent to our patio door, table and chairs. It was noisy at times to sit at the table or on a lounger due to the fans and subsequent whining noise from the units. The music for a book signing party on another evening ended soon and we went out that evening so were not disturbed further. Silvana had some of her friends back after the signing and on our return we were warmly invited in. A little irritation of the apartment was that the bathroom was small with a shower to one side with no cubicle so the water made most of the floor wet. Silvana was such a charming friendly host it feels bad to mention the issues arising but we felt somewhat unprepared for what we found.

This was our third time at Palazzo Rosso and once again we really enjoyed our holiday. The area has so much to see that we arebstill finding new places to visit and it's so nice to be able to use the apartment as a base for visiting the various towns and cities nearby including Padua, Venice, Verona and Vicenza. We cycled in to Vicenza twice using the farms cycles and the excellent (and flat) off road cycle track which runs from the farm into the city. The new electric bikes are a great addition for cycling the wine trail and up into the berici hills. Plenty of restaurants close by from inexpensive trattoria, pizza and lunch stops to more expensive restaurants.
Well done again!
