Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed at this fantastic place in June 2016.
There are two separate properties; a quaint, charming cottage and a separate and equally charming apartment. Both properties are full of character, really well equipped, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. They both exude rustic charm and have an ambiance in which you automatically unwind and feel relaxed in from the minute you arrive.
There are terrific panoramic views to enjoy of the surrounding forested hills and there is a gorgeous swimming pool to cool down in or simply to lounge by.
The location is prefect for exploring the local area - it's only 20 minutes drive to Vicenza and there are many beautiful, historic towns within 80 km radius.
The hosts, Laura and Davide and their lovely children are so friendly and helpful - they really make this already wonderful place really special to stay at.
We would highly recommend this property to both couples and to families as a destination for a relaxing holiday or short break - you won't regret it.
Go raibh maith agat (Irish for thank you so much) Laura & Davide for making our stay such a lovely experience and we look forward to returning to stay with you again very soon.
We enjoyed our stay at Il Rustico, the name says it all! Remote location, quiet, quaint accommodations, but with close proximity to nearby small towns for convenient train travel to Venice. Laura was very friendly and accommodating. The washer was not working when we arrived, but she had a plumber coming and kept us updated as to when he would be there and tried to get it fixed as promptly as possible. Some updates are needed, such as boards around the pool area, the path leading to the rental property, mattress worn, etc. But overall very good value!
This is as exactly as described:rustic, yet comfortable. Although it's not easy to find on one's own, Laura & Davide went out of their way to assist and shuttle us to the property (out rental car would not have traversed the last half mile or so dirt road) and make us feel so welcomed & comfortable. It is as exactly as photographed: a narrow spiral staircase runs from the basement (bathroom) to bedroom on the 2nd floor. We left our suitcases on the 1st floor. The hideaway kitchen was serviceable and the pool was a delight after a long hot day of travel.
Il Rustico went beyond our expectations. It is a fabulous quiet retreat that offered peace and tranquillity, yet offering a location which allowed you to explore the vast history of the local area; from Vicenza to Verona and more.
The house was perfect for amenities, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom were well equipped. We had a washing machine to do the necessary laundering over the fortnight. We had an outside seating area and this was put to good use every morning and evening watching the sun rise or communing with nature on an eve.
The facilities also included a Jacuzzi, sauna and pool. The pool was the biggest asset on the hot August days where the temperature reached 38 degrees.
The owners were more than happy to help with any requests and had a wide breadth of knowledge of where to visit, what to see and the best places to eat. They were an amazing family and made our stay and holiday a great experience.
David and Laura, we cannot thank you enough for the fantastic holiday you gave us. Il Rustico , Il Fantastico Ciao. :-)
