About this listing

The accomodations are offered in a historical building, internally restructured to offer all comforts. The guesthouse includes four suites, each having own kitchen, private bathroom and bedrooms. The windows overlook the wooded park and garden.

The space

Since 1986 the estate of Castello di Barbarano opened its gates to all guests who desired a different kind of vacation offering tranquillity and beauty in an environment of historical past and art.

The Marinoni family intends to provide an environment suitable for each guest to find pleasure and relaxation.

The guest accomodations are offered in a seventeen hundred historical building, internally restructured to offer all modern comforts, separate from the main Villa. The guesthouse includes four suites, each having its own full equipped kitchen, private bathroom, one or two bedrooms.

Most of the windows have a view of the wooded park and garden, a panoramic view of the entire valley surrounded by smooth hills called "Berici". The medieval walls, that surround the estate, enclose an oasis suitable for relaxation and meditation.

The Marinoni family, who owns and operates the estate, offers a very warm welcome, in a familiar atmosphere.

Elda, Michelangelo and family have an amazing palazzo in the country. It was exactly what we were after - 2 families meeting in Italy, booking 3 apartments (2 with kitchens). We were able to use Barbarano as a base, and go on day trips to Verona, Vicenza, and a Palladian Villa tour. Two local villages are a short walk, for trattoria and shops etc. We enjoyed our evenings in the apartments, using the kitchen and dining facilities. Had we been home during the day, we would have used the beautiful gardens and al fresco dining. Elda was generous with the children, showing them her tortoises, and Michelangelo took us on a tour of the cellars. Exquisite location, spectacular views, warm and welcoming hosts, great facilities. We hope to return again to walk or ride in the area.

Absolutely wonderful stay. About 30 minutes from Vicenza into the mountains. Quiet and scenic location. Michelangelo and his brother are most excellent hosts and very helpful with prompt communication. We rented the entire villa for 6 people. All linens and towels were provided. The place was extremely clean, all facilities functional, and basic amenities in place. Would highly recommend this place for holidays, and friends & family occasions. You definitely need a car to get you around.

If you are looking for an unforgetable beautiful house with a stunning view in a peaceful village, you should definitely go to Castello di Barbarano! We absolutely felt we were surrounded by the Italian way of living. The woner speaks good english and is very helpful. We stayed in the room on the ground floor, room nr 1, which is super handy if you come with kids. The rooms ( kitchen/living - bedroom - bathroom) were very tidy and everything you need is there. The garden is super nice with an amazing view!! ( There is no pool, so we brought a little inflatable one for our son.) It is very easy to visit Vicenze, Padua and Verona, all within an hour or so. No more to say then: we just LOVED it and will recommend it to everyone we know.

Beautiful surroundings. Very private. We stayed here with a group of friends. We each had our own apartment and we had a great time. Elda is a sweetheart. Would go back if only to play pool with the locals again.

I am from Barbarano but I spend a lot of time off town for work reasons, I am a telecommunication engineer. I like long distance running, and I try to go as much as possible up on the Berici hills for my training sessions. Just ask me and I will show you the most beautiful paths of the region!
