Casa del Prete is an apartment in a two-story building on the La Montecchia estate, a sixty acre estate that produces renowned wine. The estate is nestled in the Euganean hills and is largely surrounded by a protected regional park, providing opportunities for hiking. Casa del Prete itself was once the home of the castle priest.
The apartment has been carefully restored and equipped with modern amenities while maintaining its ancient structure. A spacious, comfortable sitting room is located on the first floor, along with the kitchen, dining room, and bathroom with bathtub. The sofa in the living room can accommodate one person (extra charge). Stairs lead up to the twin bedroom and double bedroom, which has an ensuite bathroom with shower.
The garden around the apartment is planted with olive trees and oleander bushes. A large table stands in the shade of a lime tree, and comfortable reclining chairs furnish another corner of the garden. A swimming pool is a 2-3 minute walk from the apartment. It is part of the golf club Montecchia and guests can use the pool, free of charge, from Tuesday to Friday from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm.
The apartment is an ideal location for sightseeing to the nearby cities of Venice, Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Mantua, and Ferrara, among others. Also nearby is the Brenta Canal, along which guests can view many villas designed by Palladio. Three golf courses, a spa, and many excellent restaurants are also in the near vicinity.
The apartment is equipped with mobile air conditioning units in each bedroom, CD/stereo, washing machine, refrigerator, American coffee machine, fans, and central heating. There are three additional apartments available for rent on the estate.
