Unique Vacations


Nestled away in an untouched valley in the North-West of Italy, in the pristine National Park of the Euganean Hills, lies Villa Barbarigo Pizzoni Ardemani. The villa is part of the Valsanzibio estate which includes the world-famous Giardino Valsanzibio and during your stay you will enjoy views over this beautiful historical garden.

The Villa is recognised as one of the foremost historical residences of the region having been built, along with the garden, in the 17th century by the wealthy Venetian noble family, the Barbarigo. As the garden and villa were accessible by water from Venice up until the mid-19th century, you will be following in the footsteps of the Venetian Doge who used to stay here during his own vacations.
