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! It' s true, May 23, at Villa Ducale a concert of classical music was held: it was a unique and special event, organized in memory of the founder of Villa Ducale who has recently passed away.

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...

This hotel was a mansion in the days when people of this region bathed in money (figuratively) Our room (#30) was quite nice. Due to time constraints, we were not able to enjoy the grounds which were extremely well tended to and palatial in scope. We were however able to enjoy a breakfast in their "Restaurant" off the lobby that...

I booked a suite at Villa Ducale, the best room there, for two nights in the autumn 2012 to see Veneto Villas, to drive one evening to Venezia for an opera and finally for the next morning drive to Marco Polo airport.

Dear guest, We are glad that you enjoyed here. For us it is important the well-being of our guests. We are sorry that wi-fi didn't work well, probably there was some problems with internet connection that day. For restaurant dishes we only use fresh food (meat, fish, bread...). We are very happy that our dishes satisfied you! We are sorry...
