Wonderful place with some minor issues
Location: perfect. Surrounded by the majestic Euganean Hills, very close to Padua, Vicenza, Venice, Verona, Mantua, Ferrara... Borders a 17-century Villa Barbarigo with a beautiful park. Very quiet but within walking distance from a couple of restaurants (in Valsanzibio and Galziniano Terme).
House: 18-century building, recently renovated. However, you have to wait for water to warm up which is not too convenient when there're more than 1 person in the house. The wifi was mostly nonoperational. We had to reboot the router quite often yet it wouldn't run for long. The firewood didn't burn! It was slowly smoldering without fire... The extra payment of 100 Euro for cleaning and 125 Euro for heating over 8 days looks a bit expensive. And there were no condiments (even salt or sugar!) in the house although all utensils were good. There were a lot of ladybugs and stinky bugs in the house.
Bottom line: if you're okay with some minor comfort issues, this place is hard to beat.
