About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Ca’ Contea is a countryside farmhouse with a history going back centuries. Located in the middle of a vineyard and with breathtaking view, the house is built on a property of 12 acres, on the hillside of Padua, in the heart of Veneto Region. Its position is central between the wonderful cities of Padua, Vicenza, Venice and Verona.

Decorated with stylish, comfortable appeal, Ca’ Contea is a perfect choice for those seeking peace and serenity, but why not spending some time outdoors and keep fit ? The Euganean Hills present the opportunity to travel characteristic paths, making you feel exciting emotions, which only nature can offer. Sport activities are: Nordic walking, trekking, hiking, biking, rock climbing.

The house is 400sq, distributed on two levels. On the ground floor, the front door leads onto one of the two living rooms, both with a fireplace and comfortable sittings. The adjacent big kitchen opens in a large veranda with a squared table for 'al fresco' dining.

A huge dining room with a wooden six metres-long dining table, a bathroom with tub and a laundry room complete the ground floor.

A staircase leads to the second floor, where there are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (with shower) and a very spacious study-library. The master bedroom has a four-poster bed; two bedrooms have two single beds each (on request it is possible making them as double bed), and one is a single bedroom (cozy, but small).

The study-library has a fireplace and two glass-windows overlooking the valley.

About Cristina De Leo

I am native from Vicenza, my background is in Arts history and interior decoration. I share with my husband, the passion for antiques. We love this house and we restored it with great passion. In this days we travel a lot for work and we like to keep the house 'open and alive', so we decided to put it on rental for minded people that want to discover this 'off the beaten path' side of Italy.

Why Cristina De Leo chose Province of Padua

This a quite unique house, because it has been built to be our home. We didn't think to rent it. So it is carefully furnished down to the tiniest detail , so you would feel to be in a very cosy and elegant place. The strategic location makes for many an inspiring day trip to Padova, Venice, Vicenza, Verona, Ferrara, lake Garda as well as Este, Montagnana, Monselice and Arquà Petrarca in the immediate vicinity. The villas on the Brenta canal as well as the famous Palladio villas should also be your primary choices.

What makes this villa unique

Benefiting from being just 10 minutes drive from 3 golf courses (18 holes) and 15 minutes drive from the Hot Spring and Spa of Abano and Montegrotto and encircled by several panoramic cycling and walking tracks, it is a perfect solution for everybody liking open-air activities and wellness. Even the passionate cultural and gourmet travelers could be satisfied visiting the nearby historical cities of Vicenza and Verona as well as walled-cities and castles where it is possible find a simple but authentic hospitality, which brings you in contact with the traditional values.

Spectacular grounds with all the amenities you need! A truly stunning vila with old world charm.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults enjoyed 5 wonderful nights at Ca Contea in Teolo. The property and villa are beautiful and offer a unique stay in the Euganean hills. We used the villa as our home base and did day trips to Garda Lake & Verona, Bologna, Venice and the small towns in the hills. In the area, we especially enjoyed the town of Arquà Petrarca, olive oil tasting at a local producer, Frantoio di Valnogaredo and wine tasting at Parco del Venda.

There are nice restaurants very close by and we also did some home cooking - we bought a chicken from the local butcher and used the cooking fireplace in the kitchen - delicious!

The villa is expansive with many interesting pieces throughout. Plenty of space inside and out - we really enjoyed dining outside with the beautiful scenery.

The terrain is full of hills and twists and turns - many cyclists getting very good workouts!!! We didn’t get a chance to do any biking or hiking but there is plenty of opportunity for both.

Cristina was very kind, giving us many recommendations and making sure all was good for our stay! We loved our visit and hope to come back and spend more time exploring this beautiful part of Italy!

Beautiful home and ideal location in the Euganean Hills

  • 5 of 5

Ca'Contea is a lovely home surrounded by lush hills and vineyards, yet it's an easy drive to the Padova train station from which so much of Italy can be accessed. My friends and I could not have imagined a more perfect retreat. I hope to return someday soon.

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. The owner Cristina was very helpful with the booking and also had lots of helpful hints and tips for things to do while we were there.

The Villa is situated in the stunning surroundings of the Euganean Hills. The vineyard adjoining the villa also boasts fig tees and Hazelnut trees. The local area is popular for cycling and the nearby restaurants offer all you would expect from local Italian fare.

The Villa itself was roomy and cool and easily coped with 7 adults.

You will need a car if you stay here and a good sat nav is almost essential to find it initially.

Day trips to Venice and Lake Garda are possible but they would be a long day with small children. Cristina's local knowledge will help with travel tips.

A great place for a family holiday

Wonderful! Wonderful! Are there any better words?!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this magnificent property for seven weeks. We were enchanted! The house, the views and the surroundings were spectacular. This house, lovingly restored and renovated by the owners, is exceptional. The attention to detail and the quality of the items found in the house, are higher in quality than in most rental properties. This is a house that offers luxury and comfort at the same time. Its location on a vineyard is exceptional and the surroundings are spectacular. It is located close to a small village (Teolo) which has a surprising amount of good restaurants. This, in addition to the fabulous kitchen in the house, which invites lazy cooking afternoons. Our host, Cristina, is an extremely gracious and lovely woman who is very attentive to all our needs and who oversees the maintenance of the house in an efficient, but discreet manner. She is charming and was very welcoming to our daughter who visited for two weeks and my hiking lady-friends who stayed with us for a few days. Gilles and I were very happy in this house, and we encourage anyone who is hesitating on renting the property, to go ahead and do it- it is worth it!! The pictures on internet do not do the house justice- it is even better!! Just be warned, there are two similar addresses in this small village (yes, really) and the other house which we went to first by mistake, is nowhere near the same as this one- so do not be discouraged. Hopefully this glitch is being fixed by Google GPS in order to sort that little issue... My only concern in posting this good review is that the house will be occupied the next time we want to rent it!

Dolce far niente

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus hat uns so gefallen, daß wir mehr Zeit vor Ort verbracht haben, wie wir eigentlich vorhatten. Wir haben uns extrem wohlgefühlt und das ganze Ambiente in vollen Zügen genossen. Das Haus wurde mit sehr viel Liebe und Geschmack eingerichtet - besonders die Küche liess keine keine Wünsche offen und war unser Lieblingsplatz. Cristina hat es meisterhaft verstanden in diesem Haus Alt und Neu zu kombinieren udn trotzdem eine gewisse Gemütlichkeit zu erhalten Auch die Lage mit Aussicht und der Garten waren fantastisch und wenn es das Wetter zuliess haben wir draußen getafelt. Der Kontakt mit Cristina war völlig unkompliziert und die Übergabe durch die liebenswerte Hausverwalterin Ivana verlief trotz sprachlicher Schwierigkeiten ohne Probleme, aber mit viel Lachen. Alles in allem ist dieses Haus fabelhaft und seinen Preis wert.
