On the edge of the Euganean Hills Regional Park and just a few kilometres outside Padua, close to important cities such as Venice, Vicenza and Verona, Villa Conte Emo Capodilista has belonged to the same family for more than 20 generations.
Today this historic vineyard retains its authentic Mediaeval charm thanks to the restoration of the old farm buildings and is open to anyone looking to enjoy an unrivalled combination of historic, artistic and natural heritage.
One of the jewels of the villa, which was designed in 1568 by Dario Varotari an artist who was a student of Paolo Veronese who also had a huge passion for architecture, include the remarkable frescoes depicting scenes from mythology, family traditions, cherubs, and grotesques.
Villa Emo Capodilista is an oasis of history and culture and offers its visitors a wonderful mixture of historic buildings, combining authenticity and comfort with traditional family hospitality; the estate has always been closely associated with wine production and today’s methods prioritise environmental protection and preservation.
You can stay in “La Montecchia”, where you can enjoy the view of the vines across the rolling slopes of Montecchia hill. If you stay in the houses near to the villa or in the apartments at the castle you can swim in the lake or play a round of golf, or just relax and enjoy some of the high quality produce which has been recognised by many of the industry’s most important guides.
