If you are thinking of exploring the province of Treviso, you can choose to stay either downtown or in the outskirts. The city obviously offers more comfort, but on the other hand you lose the true spirit of the life in the Marca (such is called the Treviso province). Here are 5 suggestions.
Piazzetta Trento e Trieste 7 Castelfranco Veneto, tel. +390423498707
Nestled in the city walls of Castelfranco Veneto, next to the Clock Tower, the Hotel Alla Torre is a niche in art, history and comfort, ideal for both short and long stays. The staff, always praised by its guests, gives that little extra to make a good experience, a unique experience. If you want to breathe even more a medieval air, ask for a room with the original brick of the city walls. Hotel Alla Torre is located in the centre of the Castelfranco Veneto, so that you can reach shops, bars and restaurants in walking distance. The train station is particularly convenient, if you plan day trips without driving. With just a few Euros you can reach Treviso, Cittadella, Padua and Venice.
Via Canova 298 Asolo, tel. +390423523411
In a Palladian style villa, mansion of the English poet R. Browning, then the famous Guinness family, which in 1962 let the inn to be managed by Giuseppe Cipriani, father of the famous Harry’s Bar in Venice. The Hotel Villa Cipriani since then has distinguished not only for its fascinating structure, but also for the impeccable service offered to its guests and for the magnificent view that you can enjoy from the terrace. A swimming pool just below the restaurant allows you to spend some relaxing afternoons giving a view that can wander down to the lagoon of Venice. An overnight within these walls is an unforgettable experience. The parking lot is on the other side of the road, just book it in advance.
Strada Masare 4 Valdobbiadene, tel. +390423900408
On the hills and vineyards of Prosecco peeps the Relais Dolcevista, a typical Venetian farmhouse, completely restored and transformed into an exclusive B&B . It has 6 rooms named according to 6 different wine varieties. As soon as you step into your room, you’ll notice its link with the Prosecco, as your welcome will be given by a complementary bottle of Prosecco. If you stay in the area, you certainly need a car to drive around, but with day trips you can visit many place across the province. The breakfast is simple but tasty, and in summer you can use the small outdoor swimming pool.
Via Erizzo 79 Montebelluna, tel. +390423603031
Next to the slopes of the Montello hill, the Agriturismo Morgan is the ideal place to make a base for a visit of the Marca. It has very specious either single or double rooms, with a very good value. A tasty and healthy breakfast combined with the great kindness of the whole family, Franco, Alessandro and their parents, make this B&B a place from another time.
Via Mercato Vecchio 18 Caerano di S.Marco, tel. +390423857004
In a completely restored farm house of 18th century the Agriturismo Col delle Rane welcomes its guests with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It has either rooms or apartments, as well as an outdoor swimming pool based on a natural water recycling system, where you can cool off after the hot summer days. The healthy and plentiful breakfast is homemade with the products of their organic farm. They also have bikes that you can borrow for free and and enjoy a ride out of town.
From the Montebelluna train station you can reach Venice, Padua and Belluno. If you decide to go to Venice by train, remember that once in Treviso you have to wait for the coincidence. For this reason, I suggest driving up to the station of Treviso and from there heading off to Venice by train as there are more trains and you can stay in Venice longer.
