Villa Franceschi

Home > Hotels >  Villa Franceschi

The majestic waters of the River Brenta wind their way between the Palladian villas, once a favourite haunt of the aristocracy. Amongst these, Villa Franceschi, the former residence of the Doge’s jewellers, stands in a bend in the river in all its splendour, within acres of forested parkland.

Villa Franceschi is a 5-star hotel on the Brenta Riviera, a picturesque corner of Veneto that runs along the Brenta river and boasts stunning natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage. Venice is only a short drive away, as are the artistic wonders of Padua, the enchanting town of Verona, and the Palladian treasures of Vicenza. The hotel occupies a 17th-century villa that’s been brought back to life by a local family who run it with passion, commitment, and dedication. Entering the ancient gate reveals an instant sense of elegance: every small detail is well curated and its centuries-old park is filled with enchanting corners. There’s also a pool ringed with elegant white umbrellas that’s perfect for a refreshing break.
Behind the villa’s splendid façade, complete with a stone balcony and tympanum, the elegant interiors echo the property’s past as the home of the Doge's jewelers. They have been lovingly decorated with a mix Murano glass chandeliers, period furniture, precious carpets, and silk fabrics handcrafted by Venetian artisans.


Marble fireplaces, lampshades, old paintings, antique furniture, and rich Venetian fabrics provide a refined feel to the bedrooms that occupy the two noble floors of the villa. Some have a balcony or a private patio overlooking the park. All rooms come with minibar, air-conditioning, flat screen TV, and ETRO toiletries. There’s a more rustic vibe in the rooms hosted in the boathouse, the villa’s former boat and tool shed, where wood and terracotta blend beautifully with handcrafted furniture and fabrics.
