Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Villa Michelangelo, near Vicenza

Basking in glorious sunlight from its hilltop perch, the four-star Palladian-style country house hotel occupies a pretty rural spot, nestling amid the hillsides in the heart of the Veneto. This picturesque setting offers great views of the Berici Hills making you feel a world away from the sprawl of ancient architecture in the nearby Vicenza, yet its location makes the buzz of the city easily accessible. Capped by terracotta roofing, its noble 18th century walls extend along the crest of a hill and take in picturesque views which dissolve from refined lawns and across the Veneto's rolling landscape. You can enjoy a meal on the terrace here, or seek the outdoor pool for a refreshing dip surrounded by age-old olive trees. An indoor swimming pool is also available. The natural light provided by Hotel Villa Michelangelo's exposed position makes for bright and airy interiors, helped along by a vibrant colour scheme. In the lounge and library, effervescent yellows and oranges are featured in soft furnishings, while antique furniture and original ceiling beams speak of the property's age. Meanwhile, lofty ceilings are exploited in suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, while rooms offer a distinctly more traditional style. A highlight of your stay at Hotel Villa Michelangelo is the dining experience; at La Loggia restaurant each guest is treated to a high standard of excellence to match the setting. There are four elegant dining rooms to choose from for enjoying buffet breakfasts, snacks and lunches as well as evening meals including the sun-drenched conservatory-style Portico room and the more refined Melograno room with its grand piano. After-dinner beverages at the bar can help you recover from the day's adventures, which can be spent exploring the region, perhaps Padua, Verona or Venice. The Villa Michelangelo offers guests an exceptionally refined level of hospitality.

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.
