The Villa and its History
Situated in Sarmeola di Rubano, along the main road to Vicenza , just ten minutes from Padova town centre, VILLA BORROMEO, a country mansion and original family estate which was built around 1615.
It is surrounded by 2,5 hectars of woodland and lawns, away from the fast spreading urban area.
A fine example of Italian "villa veneta", it has living space of 600 sq.m. arranged over two storeys and loft. The piano nobile floor is characterized by a series of impressive, frescoed rooms painted between 1600 and 1700 by fine artists inspired by the great Venetian masters.
Some of the original features of the building, like its stone fireplaces, Venetian terrazzo floors, fixtures, doors and timber beams have been revitalised through careful renovation.
The original period furniture has been supplemented by modern-day facilities to add functionality, whilst preserving the original charm and character.
The property now offers full use of its indoor and outdoor spaces, thanks also to the thorough renovation of its stables, barchessas and wide loft which have been converted into 1300 sq.m. halls with en-suite facilities, air-conditioning, heating, dimmable lighting. They are also equipped with the latest communications equipment, providing the ideal setting for business events, including conferences, company meetings, exhibitions, fashion shows, dinners or any other type of formal or public events.
