CHECK AVAILABILITY
In 1884 a Venetian nobleman, Count Giulio Rocca, built his splendid Villa in the brilliant greenery of a magnificent park along the placid shores of the Brenta River. White marble nymphs and allegorical statues of the four season peak out from behind centuries-old trees surrounded by fountains and well heads before and the melancholic old stables at the end of the garden.

A mere 15 minutes from romantic Venice and ancient Padova, Villa Ducale offers an ideal point of departure for the discovery of the fascinating Veneto countryside. Public buses that stop right in front of the Hotel’s majestic gate provide direct service from Dolo to these two cities of art. Subjected to patient and careful renovation at the start of the “Nineties, the Villa has now been restored to all its original splendor and sober elegance.

The floors in the Hall and the rooms have regained their brilliance, the stucco work its delicate forms, and every room is adorned by frescoes and sumptuous mirrors in Murano glass also used for the elegant chandeliers that shed their light on the soft curtains and gleaming furniture.

Villa Ducale offers 11 rooms with high ceilings, frescoed walls, and warm wooden floors all furnished with the sobriety of pure Venetian style. Every room offers the comfort of a mini-bar, safe deposit box, direct line telephone, and bathtub or shower en suite. Some rooms offer bewitching view over the ancient park from larger or smaller terraces and delightful balconies.

Villa Ducale delights its guests with traditional Venetian cuisine at its “Le Colonne” restaurant in the glittering, gilded atmosphere instilled by silver candelabra, mirrors, majestic chandeliers in Murano glass, and fine table linen in a never-ending play of light and reflection amidst the discrete and attentive service of the dining staff. A bar is also provided on the premises, as well as complimentary wireless Internet access and free parking.

Give Yourself or others the intense emotion of a villa set at the heart of the Riviera del Brenta.

The hotel has a good restaurant is decorated in the style of the hotel-villa. But the hotel staff was not competent. We tried to offer an expensive wine for 100 euros, indicating a different price. Although the menu contains the exact price. Please give us the menu again remained unanswered. Pretended that they had no wine menu. Then we completely abandon the wine and just dined. Food in the restaurant is very tasty, the choir

It's a very nice old Villa in a very nice old garden, Italian ambiente, historical atmosphere. The breakfast was acceptable, compared to the usual offers in Italy... The opportunities for having dinner are not so much. And all around Venice the restaurants are more or less poor and/or very expensive. Our suggest: In Padova you find very nice restaurants with the wellknown good Italian cooking for acceptable prices!

My family and I stayed there for 20 years and have not changed anything or improved any since then until now. The place is beautiful, but is very faded and dirty. The staff is adorable, Laura, the reception clerk, is incredibly cute and ready to solve all one requires. Alessandra the only waitress in the restaurant, is as loving as we can imaging,is like a kind of loving aunty , but all that is not enough, as the owner does not hire enough stasff to keep everything running properly. The air conditioning does not work well, the showers are a disaster, no lift to carry our bags up the stairs very long, and is not explained in the web page of the hotel. A great disappointment, considering the decline of the splendor of other times.

Wow! This is a stunning place with lots of character. We were amazed by the fabulous Murano glass chandeliers everywhere, marble staircase and 15 foot ceilings! The reception area has a huge fireplace and the formal gardens are just fantastic. We had a superb dinner (the maitre d' was just great) and for breakfast we had the best and most varied selection we have had anywhere. The staff were very helpful guiding us to the bus across the road into Venice. (about 40mins) We would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet stay in a classic Italian Villa.

The hotel is a perfect match for those searching for non-expensive and luxury stay near Venice. The hotel is something like 19th century villa with a very spacious rooms. The bus station that brings you to Venice is just outside hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The only problem we faced in this hotel - is a "paper thin" walls (we could hear everything that was happening in a room nearby) and some food during breakfast was cold although it was supposed to be warm. Anyway I could treat this as a 4* star hotel and would definitely choose it for my next trip to Venice and recommend it to others.

It is very nice and quite place where you can feel an athmosphere as a venetian family two century ago.... In front of the hotel there is a bus stop so you can reach Venice in half an hour very easily, the same when you come back from there. The last bus leave Venice at midnight so you can decide to spend the evening there.... If you prefer to have a dinner in a family restaurant where fish is very special, you can try "Trattoria Marina" that is closed to the hotel, quality vs price is great!

It's amazing to stay in such a marvelous villa and to enjoy the atmosphere there. The other likewise buildings in the neighbourhoods are amazing too. Only two things in our Hotel gave reason for complaint. The minor one was missing german television. The other one we didn't like was noise. During night the heating appliance was too loud and our room was next to the street (concerns room 23), so that cars driving past disturbed our sleep.
