About Jacopo Marcello

I was born and grew up in this villa. First of all through my family’s care and teaching, and then in a conscious and individual way, I was charmed by these incredible surroundings permeated by tradition and a warm welcoming feeling. After having spent 10 years away studying and working, in 2002 I decided to come back here, to my home, and put all my efforts in keeping its splendour alive and making it visible to our guests, hoping that they will feel the emotions that I felt and continue to do so.

Jacopo Marcello purchased this villa in 1550

What makes this villa unique

The Venetian villas are more than 4.000 houses, built between 1450 and 1700, and Ca’ Marcello is one of the few which is still lived by the original aristocratic family. The private park is 90.000 sq. meters and is rich in old-century trees, statues, flower beds. Going for a sunset stroll or for jogging in the early morning is like walking in heaven. During your stay, I'll be glad to accompany you through a private visit of the main building to appreciate the real Italian lifestyle and share our love for this beautiful place. Our family deeply believes in the great difference between being guests and being clients, and the first one is the way we like people to feel while having their holiday here.

Regarding the concept: The Barchessa apartment is the only guesthouse in the whole villa, independent and perfectly positioned (in one of the arcaded wings, called ‘Barchessa’). All the bedroom windows overlook the main Italian style garden and the villa’s façade.

Amenities: Several vegetables and spices can be freely picked up daily from our private kitchen garden. Dinners can be self-arranged by the guests, but can also be cooked by a private chef and served in the garden, everywhere the guests want.

Surroundings and activities: the property lays in the middle of the southern Veneto region. This means being a few minutes away from all major interesting destinations in the area: Venice (35 minutes by direct train), Padua (40 mins by car), Bassano and Asolo (30 mins), Verona and Lake Garda (90 mins), Cortina d' Ampezzo (120 mins) and all charming villages and Palladian villas.

Scenery lovers can visit the natural park of the River Sile, where also boating and kayaking facilities are available. Private visits to local cellars and wine producers are possible to taste the famous 'Prosecco'(50 mins from the villa).

Daily boat trips on the Brenta River are easy to arrange to enjoy the stunning landscape and Palladian villas from Padua to Venice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Marcellos,

What can we say - our group members have expressed our feelings very eloquently. Your warm welcome into your home made our stay very pleasant. Jacopo's attention to our needs was appreciated by all, and Carlotta's desserts will long be appreciated and remembered by the children.

The dinner that the chef cooked for us was the highlight of our family reunion for both the locals and the Canadian contingent.

Amazing Italian Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at the Ca' Marcelo apartments in March 2017.

It was a really pleasant stay as we could combine our tight business schedule of visiting our suppliers in the Veneto region of Italy with relaxing experience at the splendid historical Italian villa. The villa's owner made our stay very comfortable. He provided a great service in regards to the meal arrangements at villa and outside and he was really helpful on any of our requests.

We would recommend this villa both for the business travelers to this part of Italy as well as leisure tourists, who would like to get a genuine experience of Italian Dolce Vita.

Wonderful Italian stay in charming villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Ca’ Marcello. Spectacular grounds, lovely and welcoming hosts and refined indoor spaces made our holiday unforgettable. The villa is very well appointed and we had everything we needed at hand. The location is perfect, in the middle of a lovely contryside landscape and at a short drive/train ride to all major attractions we were in the Veneto for: Venice, Padova, Treviso, Verona and the Prosecco hills. The accommodation is very charming and perfectly clean with lots of space for the kids to run. We loved cooking our meals in the fully equipped and brand renewed kitchen, as well as over the bbq grill out at the pool. Lots of seating for meals between the dining area, kitchen large table and patio. Jacopo is a lovely host, always caring and helping us to enjoy our stay. Absolutely recommended! Marta&Family

I need six stars!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us, three generations, made a lifetime of memories. The accommodations were first-rate and the kitchen was generously outfitted. Our gracious host Jacapo was most helpful with restaurant reservations and local information. The landscaped grounds and the private pool provided hours of entertainment for the children, like having a city park at their disposal. Venice is an easy train ride away and the nearby towns made for great day trips; having a car is a must but the peace and quiet were definitely worth it.

Wonderful place in Veneto

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and 2 kids, 8 and 10 years old.

We stayed at Ca'Marcello for 2 weeks and it was a wonderful experience. The location is great and close enough to do daily trips and still have time to enjoy the property that is amazing. Beautiful setting with breathtaking gardens. We all had a blast. Great place for kids, we rented bikes and they had a blast between the pool and all the spece to play. Marcello family were a great hosts helping us planning several trips. I would highly recommend this place to stay and would love to go back.
