Il Castelletto – Conegliano Veneto
8 Bedrooms (3 children’s bedrooms) – Swimming Pool
Il Castelletto is a small castle which was built at the beginning of the 14th Century on existing foundations from the 13th Century. It was used as a fortification to defend the castle of Cison di Valmarino, property of the counts Brandolini d’Adda from the first half of the 15th Century onwards. Being the last property in the region that remained in the family, but severely damaged in the Second World War, it has been restored and in part rebuilt by the famous architect Tommaso Buzzi who was given the difficult task of its reconstruction in 1950. Apart from adding a new wing, he redesigned the garden, the loggia and the swimming pool. All the pavements of the property derive from a Venetian church from the 11th Century which was in the course of being demolished. Il Castelletto sits on top of a hill which reigns over the valleys of Soligo and Pedeguarda and therefore had a strategic military function.
Large parts of Il Castelletto’s walls and ceilings are frescoed. Its rooms are furnished tastefully with antique pieces that belong to the family. Being positioned on what is called the “Street of the Prosecco”, Il Castelletto is surrounded by an amazing landscape largely covered by vineyards. At the foot of the hill, at the entrance to the property, there is “L’Ostaria da Clemi al Castelletto” a renown “trattoria” which is famous in all of the Veneto region for its outstanding cuisine and its charming interior. At a short distance there are also "L’Ostaria da Lino” in Solighetto and the “Trattoria da Gigetto” in Miane, both well known and mentioned in leading gastronomical guides. At Il Castelletto one also has the opportunity to enjoy fruit and vegetables of the season which come straight from the garden which the Countess keeps taking care of personally. Meals can be taken under the loggia which is furnished with antique rattan furniture and that gives way to a magnificent “green terrace” overlooking the surrounding valley. This is also where the swimming pool can be found.
