Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Hotel Abbazia, Follina

In the country village of Follina, famous for its abbey, on the Prosecco wine road north of Venice but south of the mighty Dolomites, the family-run hotel Villa Abbazia with just eighteen rooms and some suites has the ambience of a family home, offering tastefully luxurious but cosy accommodation. The hotel Villa Abbazia was in fact a family home and is located just off the main square of the village of Follina with its own courtyard and garden. In spite of being in the village there is very much a country feel, with a stream at the back of the hotel and fields around the village. The bedrooms are all individually furnished with great attention to detail and the majority of them are non-smoking. The Villa Abbazia has a Michelin-starred restaurant serving regional dishes, a more informal bistro and a tea shop. The local specialities in the restaurants in this area include chestnuts, mushrooms, homemade cakes, local cheeses and salamis. A great bonus is the charming garden where you can just sit and relax in the day-time and the terrace where breakfast can be taken in fine weather. Villa Abbazia is a member of Relais & Chateaux,and it's well worth venturing to this region for a stay here.

About Veneto

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Veneto incorporates the beauty, culture and heritage of this popular Italian region. Like its northern neighbour, Friuli, Veneto is cradled by the Dolomites to the north, the Venetian planes to the south, and the Adriatic to the east, giving it an almost unsurpassed scenic, cultural and architectural variety. Unlike Friuli, however, Veneto is one of the most visited regions in Italy, with Venice the undoubted jewel in its preposterously beautiful crown. While most people race through Veneto in their rush to get to Venice, the region is a veritable treasure trove of beautiful towns, many of them blessedly devoid of tourist crowds, who are elsewhere on the Venetian lagoon. Of these, Padua is a gem of a cobbled university town littered with Giotoa frescoes, Verona, home to Romeo and Juliet, is one of the prettiest ancient cities in Italy, Vicenza is the stunning ‘laboratory’ of Andrea Palladio, one of the most influential architects in history, and in Treviso, Veneto has a wonderful, scaled down version of Venice, complete with beautiful canals. That said, with flights into Venice, you could happily spend every holiday for the rest of your life in Veneto's celebrated capital. A staggeringly spectacular town, it does of course get busy in summer, but with no cars in the city centre, Byron's ‘fair city of the heart' has a peaceful, festive air even in high season, with a string of quieter, but equally enchanting, fascinating islands scattered around the lagoon, and an excellent network of ferries and vaporetti taking you there.

Highlights of Veneto

Veneto has a wealth of culture and interest to immerse yourself in, including: Venice carnival, an extravagant pageant making the city even more impossibly beautiful than normal; the islands of the lagoon, including Murano, famous for its glass-makers, whose workshops you can visit, and Burano, with its wonderfully colourful facades; Treviso, a scaled down Venice, great escaping the high-season crowds; Soave, a fairy-tale castle town famous for its wines; Albano, a classic 19th century thermal town; Lake Garda, flanked by lemon and olive groves, with the Dolomites reflected in its lakes, and 7,227ft Monte Baldo behind it, which you can reach by cable car; tiny village of Marostica, which stages a human chess game with ‘pieces' dressed in Renaissance costumes; Valpollicella, a lush valley strewn with family wineries; Padua and its Giotto frescoes; the Romanesque abbey of San Pietro di Foletto in Follina; numerous Palladian villas, including Bararao, Villa Emo, La Rotonda, Villa Godi and Villa Valmarana; Cima's masterpiece of an altarpiece in Conegliano cathedral; the August Palio in Feltre, with medieval games, horse racing and celebrations; Treviso's festival of dance, poetry and music in August; birdwatching on the Venice lagoon and Po delta; local cuisine, including Spaghetti alle Vongole and Prosecco from Conegliano; the fishing port of Chioggia.
