Villa Sesso Schiavo is a palladian vill located a few steps from the center of the small town of Sandrigo. This is an extremely convenient location at the center of the triangle described by the historical cities of Vicenza, Bassano, and Marostica. The construction of the villa began in 1570, when it was commissiond to commemorate the wedding between Silvio Sesso and Virginia Porto; two persons from very important families of the region.
The oldest section of the villa is composed of an elegant loggia
adjacent four rooms with an important fresco cyle attributed to Gian Antonio Fasolo and his workshop. In 1832 ownership passed to theSchiavo family. The villa complex includes, beside the palladian wing mentioned above: a consacrated chapel, the seventeenth century manor house, other period buildings, and a rich and atmospheric park with springs and water streams. The whole provides a relaxing atmosphere in contact with art, History, and nature.
Two accommodations are available in the manor house: "La Stanza di Zia Lena" is a double bedroom with private bathroom, "Alcova" is a frescoed suite including living room and separate private bathrom.
Both solution share kitchen and laundry services.
Other accomodation is available in independent units integrated in the other structures of the villa: "L'essenza" is a 5 beds appartment and "La Rustica" can accomodate 2 persons.
