As we drove up to this property we were wondering what was going on - the area seemed to be in a state of 're build' with lots of scaffolding around, trees down and no leaves on trees. it was only later we discovered there was a tornado go thru the area only a few weeks earlier. As a result...

Dear Mrs. Darwin, we thanks you for your kind review, and I apologize for answering so late. You are right, last 8th July a tornado hit the Riviera del Brenta and us too. The Villa was heavily damaged, including ovens, refrigerators, the roof, the windows, the wall around, the park is no longer the same, over 190 plants and trees,...

I stayed at Villa Ducale during a recent tour of Italy. Although most of the other people on the tour were satisfied with their rooms I was put in the last available room which was Room 27. Unfortunately this room seems to be the last unrenovated one and was unsatisfactory from several points of view. The room is dark and...

This hotel was a rare treat for all six of us. We stayed for three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. It was an elegant hotel and although it is older, its former glory and graciousness is very well maintained. The decor is lovely. There is no elevator, but the grand staircase makes up for it. The rooms...

Its my second time to stay at the villa, and to be welcomed by Marguerite, and a few days later Laura. We had a room with two double beds really large and very airy. Linen sheets were replaced a few times during our week, and the room was cleaned very well. That takes skill in a historic building such as...

Take a step back in time. Lovely villa. My son and I had the Villa Ducalino- a stand alone villa across from the main house. He thought it was awesome. Lovely breakfast in an elegant breakfast room. We are travelers without a car. Villa Ducale is on the bus route and a two minute walk when you return from Venice....

We stayed at this hotel as a couple with a 16 month old toddler. It is a fascinating property with a beautiful garden surrounding the building. The hotel in itself is part of the positive experience. It makes you feel the old Venetian lifestyle. It's like being transported back in time. The old Villa has been restored to it's former...

Stayed 2 nights as part of a 3 week tour of Italy & this was the worst place we stayed. We felt that we were just an inconvenience to the staff. Arrived on a Friday when they were preparing for a classical concert. We asked to be directed to the bar (which we have yet to see) & were told...

Dear Ms Rossies, we really apologize for not being able to satisfy your and your companion's requests your companion during your stay!

We visited Villa Ducale just after Easter 2014 having booked a 4 people room (2 adults-2kids) for four nights. First night we were given a room which we didn't like (a worn out and small bathroom and the beds of the kids separated, one into a small room and the other in a converted corridor, also facing the road with...
