Luxury Villas near Venice & the Lakes

While my site primarily focuses on Marche, Piedmont, Liguria, and Sardinia, I couldn't resist the temptation to introduce luxury villas in two more of my beloved Italian regions: Veneto and the Lake District area around Lake Maggiore.

The Veneto holds a special place in our hearts as it is where my wife's family hails from, and my wife has a website called ItalyMammaMia.com that covers this region in detail. Click here to visit her site; it may well be the start of a lifetime's love affair with the Veneto.

Meanwhile, Lake Maggiore, together with Italy's most romantic lake, Lake Orta (more about Lake Orta here), has been the backdrop to countless cherished summer weekends. Both of these regions offer unparalleled beauty, a deep-rooted historical legacy, and a culinary experience to savor.

The accommodations I feature may not be the most budget-friendly, but rest assured, each one has received my personal seal of approval. They consistently embody the pinnacle of quality, making them the perfect choice for independent travelers seeking a taste of luxury during their Italian holiday. Moreover, these properties are well-suited for those who wish to turn special occasions, such as weddings, into truly unforgettable moments.

With an array of meticulously selected venues, these regions come alive in the most enchanting way, promising a holiday filled with sophistication, style, and unmatchable memories. Whether you're considering a romantic getaway, a family reunion, or a significant celebration, the properties in Veneto and the Lake Maggiore District offer a sublime backdrop for your Italian dream escape.

The Villa Cipriano in Asolo

Asolo villa gardens

I've always loved Asolo; it is like one always dreams Italy to be: quaint cobbled streets lined with cute cottages, hills of olive groves, rambling grapevines, cypress trees, and quaint little piazze of such perfection. You just know that the idea of an aperitivo was simply designed for such a spot.

So often, places never live up to expectations, but this town truly does—far exceeding them; it is the Italian dream come to life. In such a landscape of dreams, one needs to stay in the villa of one's dreams, and we have found just the villa. It is impeccably restored and furnished, with views that bring a tear to the eye and a garden that is truly splendid. The perfect place to begin exploring the Veneto For more details click here.
