Villa Michiel

(x 11 people)

Sleeps 11 | Bedrooms 6 | Bathrooms 5 | Near Venice, Veneto

Independent villa | Private pool | Air conditioned bedrooms | Maid included |

Overview

The Villa Michiel was built in the 17th century as a country retreat for an important Venetian family. The elegant fatade belies a surprisingly informal interior with the beamed ceilings and terracotta floors of a country home. Frescoes adorn some rooms, a lovely backdrop to antique furnishings and a contrast to the modern, well-equipped kitchen, air-conditioned bedrooms. Extensive lawns surround the house, punctuated by statues, clipped hedges and a man-made lake. A path leads through a gate and crosses a tiny stream to reach the beautiful pool, paved in marble with wide steps and amply supplied with loungers and umbrellas. Although very private, Villa Michiel lies only twenty minutes' drive from the main docks to Venice, and the market, shops and restaurants of Mirano are within easy walking distance.

Una casa meravigliosa! We have had a wonderful time here. We love the home, pool, gardens and Mirano is a delightful town. Perfect for a morning coffee and pastry or a relaxing dinner and evening. We weren't too keen on the mossies but apart from that; everything exceeded all expectations.

It's full of character and charm and the boys all loved it. It was great to walk into town for a coffee and pastry and easy access to the motorway for getting to Venice and Verona. Great location. Tusany Now Very good. We've used you a few times now and have never been disappointed.

With a family spanning from 9 to 91 finding a lovely destination is always a challenge but Villa Michiel was thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. The pool fantastic! And the location ideal.

The Villa Michiel invites you through each space, inside and out, with an adventure around every corner. This old home is well maintained and filled with furniture fitting of its heritage. The grounds and the pool were a source of constant enjoyment and a distraction for our 4 kids. You can walk to town in 5 minutes and morning espresso on the square became a regular ritual. The cooks, Donna and Nicoletta were amazing and we had them cook four meals for us during our stay. There was not a single bad bite and each meal was served at exactly the time requested. I would recommend eating both in the dining room and also outside as both locations present different experiences. The house caretaker was also a joy and met any request made. Did I mention how awesome the pool was? Tuscany Now made my search for a Villa the easiest part of planning our vacation. The reviews coupled with the search engine allowed us to find options and vet them thoroughly. I have already recommended Tuscany Now to several friends by giving them a brochure.

A fantastic villa which served as a great base of operations for us. We travelled to Venice and Florence with several down days. The pool was fantastic and really allowed us to relax. The weather was perfect all week too. Being close to the town piazza was an added bonus. We walked every morning for cappuccino and some people watching. All the shops in town allowed us to get all the supplies we needed. the market on Monday is not to be missed. Love the villa love the town and loved the quiet.

The location is exceptional. The villa is an easy stroll from charming little town of Mirano with its terrific market on Mondays. It is also only a 1/2 hour from Venice and Padova, and about an hour from Vicenza. Great Monday market in Mirano.

There was a lot of space for a large group to spread out. We loved the swimming pool and outdoor areas. It was fantastic that it was short walk into the lovely town of Mirano. Anna and Nicoletta were absolutely fantastic. It was such a pleasure to get to know them while they were cooking and cleaning in the house. Anna's food was delicious and authentic. K. Eskdale 2012

Villa Michiel is a long way from Australia but more than worth the trip for our family. The villa is a beautiful restful place for travellers and the garden, pool and statues a joy. Mirano was a very welcoming villa with great food and wine for all. The friendly staff Anna Nicoletta were perfect hosts along with Anna Maria. Our family really enjoyed our delicious dinners cooked by Anna and we take away recipes and great memories. The family Eskdale 2012

Your home reminded me of my grandmother's home in New York, old world charm. It was a home away from home. Italy is a beautiful place. S.Howell 2012 I have never enjoyed in my many travels someone else's home so much! Like my sister I found a familiarity and I was instantly comfortable and content. Thank you for sharing your home with us. G. Howell 2012

The villa was very spacious and well-equipped. The pool was a major asset as we were travelling with three children who enjoyed it immensely, and the location on the edge of Mirano, within walking distance of the centre, was perfect. Anna Maria, the caretaker, was very professional and helpful, and Clara, the housekeeper, and her staff were terrific. We also had Clara prepare a dinner for ten which was outstanding.

Amazing house, fantastic big rooms, lovely old furniture, great garden. Loads of space for us all 5 adults, 4 children. Pool great too, very popular with the kids their swimming improved no end by the end of the week! Clara cooked us a meal one night amazing food, great value. Just wish we'd done it earlier in the week so we could have enjoyed the left-over's for lunch the next day!

The grounds were so beautiful, and the pool was perfect! The house was amazing--sort of eclectic shabby chic--comfortable in almost every way. The staff was extra friendly, very efficient, and helpful to all of us, although most of us could not speak a word of italian.

The swimming pool was fabulous, the setting for the villa and the pool fabulous. The 'roll-over' of previous Brits PG tips tec was appreciated as was the welcome basket of bread and pasta cooking ingredients. The kitchen was the best we have had in Italy. Have used you twice will use you again - already have my eye on next year's villa.
