Unpaired historic villa in Veneto region

Code: MB001641

Mediterranean plants and shrubs, oak and chestnuts woods, vineyards and pastures, the Euganean Hills, halfway between Padova and Venice, in northern Italy, cast a spell onto watchers for the magnificence of their lush vegetation and the unpaired harmony of the landscape, dotted with noble, historic mansions preserving a history of glorious beauty and Italian style. Villa Barbarigo is one of those brightest examples, a monument whose historic garden lists among Europe three most beautiful ones, dating back to the XVIIth century, when the noble and wealthy Venetian Barbarigo family built the mansion on the foundations pf a pre-existing site probably even dating back to mid-XVth century. They committed the construction and the garden design to the famous papal architect Luigi Bernini, who imagined a symbolic path of prayer and reflection unrolling along sixteens trails heading to spiritual purification. The way to come to this final end is dotted with fish ponds, lakes, fountains, all of them still perfectly working, and seventy statues with a deep symbolic meaning and mottoes which lead to a final labyrinth in boxwood, more than 1 mile long. The property encompasses a land more than 201 hectares wide in the territory of Valsanzibio, the local dialect form for “Saint Eusebio Valley”, the proper name of the place which could be reached, at the time the villa was built up to the end of the XIXth century, also by boat, sailing along a rich net of channels from Venice till here, the preferred transport mean chosen by the Venetian Doge Barbarigo, who used to come and spend some leisure time in summer right here. In consideration of the uniqueness of the proposal, any further information about the property will be disclosed during a confidential conversation only.
