The Villa is owned by the Italian equivalent of the UK's National Trust. However there are two two bedroom flats in the roof space which are rented out by the UK's Landmark Trust. We had a glorious three days and used them as a base for local exploration. The Villa itself is a fascinating place to visit, and is especially wonderful in the evenings, with open use of the western and eastern loggias, and garden/vineyard.

There is a good but quite expensive cafe on site, but plenty of dining options all around the area. About a one hour drive from Venice airport.

Very entertaining wine tasting at the on site wine shop.

Well worth visiting and certainly if you are a National Trust member as you will get in free. This villa is set on the top of a hill surrounded by vineyards. Interestingly it was occupied by a lawyer until around 20 years ago and I understand his wife still lives next door. This old family home is beautifully kept with large light filled rooms and fabulous views. There are frescoes on many of the walls and some furniture artefacts. The formal gardens are quite small and very peaceful. There is a cafe and shop although the place is certainly not over commercialised.

This great house is a perfect place for a peaceful afternoon. Here you could find a large area for picnic and a great coffea. If you are interested in history of the place you could walk in the rooms full of beautiful things.

Four of us spent a week in one of the attic apartments of this lovely villa. Heavenly. Day trips into the eugenian hills, Palladian houses, or just do nothing. The restaurant is very good, too.

Although quite small in comparison to some places, the villa is well presented and offers amazing views worthy of either a quick detour or planned visit. Parking is free but is off site so there is a 5 minute walk to the villa. Entrance fees are fair (€11 per adult) and go towards the maintenance of the estate so well worth it. We spent a couple of hours there which was enough to see the entire villa and grounds. There is a cafe which again is reasonably priced and overlooked the vineyards. Great trip, worth every cent.

A superb example of classical design that has been well restored only recently. The frescos are mainly fragments but give a feeling for how the villa would have looked. There is a attractive cafeteria with outside seats for when the weather allows and a shop selling wine from the estate. An added bonus if you are British and a member of the National Trust, is you get in for free.

We stumbled across this villa as we were driving to another destination and decided to stop for a visit. The villa and its grounds are absolutely lovely. The inside of the villa is attractively decorated and furnished, and is kept in very good condition. The grounds are appealing. Do the take the time to have a look at the grounds of the villa. The cafe is a must. It was a lovely day when we visited, and we drank our coffee and ate our crostata at a table outside overlooking the grounds. The crostata was absolutely delicious. Anna, who rungs the cafe, is charming. She bakes the cakes herself. Anna also provided us with some tips about other things to see in the area. We stayed to do a wine tasting in the shop adjacent to the ticket office and shop. We enjoyed tasting and comparing several local wines. Everyone at the villa was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed Villa dei Vescovi much more than the two more famous villas along the Brenta that we had visited the previous day.

From the site of the villa visitors can enjoy superb views on the surrounding down to Padua. The guided tour of the villa is highly recommended to discover the history and art masterpieces still visible. Worth a walk through the vineyard. The cafe terrace is a unique vantage point where to relax and enjoy some local produce. Members of the National Trust for England, Wales and Northern Ireland benefit from free visiting arrangements. Staff is very kind and helpful.

For those who appreciate history, art and architecture, Villa Dei Vescovi is well worth the effort to find this amazing place tucked into the Eugene hills. The staff are incredibly helpful and wanting to share their enthusiasm for this property with guests. The scenery is beautiful and offers the perfect spot to picnic. Vineyards dot the hill side, and the church bell next to the Villa offers fairly continuous chimes.

Located in the hills of Eugene, close to Padua, it is an amazing place for visits during all seasons! A picturesque view from the hill, where the villa is located! A must see for passionate travellers!
