At the foot of the famous Monte Grappa and surrounded by more than 16,000 m2 of immaculate grounds, Villa Stecchini is an elegant private residence built by the noble Stecchini family at the start of the 17th century.
Even today, centuries later, it is the home to the same family; a remarkable fact which is very unusual for Venetian Villas which are still lived in by the same families who had them built.
Villa Stecchini’s artistic, historic and cultural value is enhanced by its original 1650 fish pond created using the perspective technique, facing the Barchessa building. Outside are the dovecote, the glasshouses and a private chapel which is still consecrated.
The main rooms still contain their original furnishings, painted by artists from the Da Ponte school and sculptures by Canova, as well as the only surviving portrait of Gemma Donati, wife of Dante Alighieri.
Today Villa Stecchini offers accommodation combining the warm hospitality of the owners with the opportunity to taste the villa’s own produce, including olive oil and vegetables. Tastings take place inside the villa’s rustic restaurant or during events hosted in the rooms of the villa, the glasshouses or the garden.
