One hour from Venice, 40 minutes from Padua and only 20 from Vicenza, Villa di Montruglio stands in a prominent position at the foot of the Berici Hills, its grounds filled with ancient woodland trees and vines.
Commissioned by the Vicenza-based Arnaldi family, who came into possession of the land in the mid-1500s through marriage, work on the Villa began around 1680 and was completed at start of the 18th century by the architect Francesco Antonio Muttoni, whose original design is clearly influenced by the work of Palladio and Scamozzi.
The appeal of Villa di Montruglio lies in the land all around: the rolling Berici hills silhouetted behind it, the farmland below and the vineyards on the surrounding hillsides, as well as the gardens which encircle it.
This makes Villa di Montruglio the ideal venue for your exclusive event in a peaceful location as well as a place to explore art and the natural environment alongside tastings of the Villa’s own wines.
Since 1864, the year when the house was purchased by Countess Fanny Camerini, Villa di Montruglio has been owned by the same family, who continue to lovingly care for it.
