Villa Condulmer is a Venetian Villa whose dating remains uncertain, although it is known that the Villa was built on the ruins of an ancient monastery.
Changing owners many times over the centuries, the building has been listed since 1930 and is now home to a prestigious five-star hotel. Alongside the innovative services, Hotel Villa Condulmer still offers its customers the charm of a true Venetian Villa of the ‘700.
According to the dictates of the Venetian Villas of the eighteenth century, the representative space is privileged, with the stately building preceded by the garden in an axial configuration. After the central statue surrounded by a flower bed, you come to two monumental centuries-old trees that adorn the entrance to the stately building.
Crossing the four steps of the entrance, the visitor is greeted by the large passing hall, the heart of the building. Here the first thing that strikes you is the “Venetian terrazzo” flooring, and immediately afterwards the walls and ceiling adorned with fine stuccoes.
The symmetrical and majestic antique chandeliers handmade in Murano glass do not go unnoticed. In the hall, you can admire 4 bucolic-themed frescoes, made around the mid-19th century by the painter Eugenio Moretti Larese. Significant among these is the second on the right which portrays Count Giovan Battista Tornielli together with his friend and famous composer Giuseppe Verdi.
Going up the symmetrical stairs you arrive at the noble floor, also characterized by a large living room with a Venetian terrazzo floor, an imposing majestic eighteenth-century Murano glass chandelier in the centre of a valuable noble coat of arms, a protruding terrace, and a remarkable verticality.
The pride of Villa Condulmer is the large eighteenth-century park designed by architect Sebatoni. A timeless place where it is easy to relax with peaceful walks in total tranquillity.
There are numerous imposing and rare secular trees, numerous flowers and essences, typical of these secular parks. Also in the park, there is a large and beautiful swimming pool surrounded by greenery.
Adjacent to the park of the villa, an eighteenth-century chapel currently deconsecrated. Walking through this splendid park you will also come across statues, ancient ruins and a small and very particular pavilion overlooking the lake.
