“Lovingly restored old house - fully equipped with all amenities - fantastic view over the valley & Euganean hills.”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Arqua Petrarca is the perfect base to explore local villages in the Veneto plain, Euganean hills and further afield to Venice, Padua and Verona.
The village has small bars, Enotecas and traditional food. Also a small bakery - need to check opening times with Matteo - not predictable!
We enjoyed the steep walk from the house to the village, but its not for the less mobile!
Matteo is a keen golfer and has a small putting green on the property - he also runs fishing trips. Worth asking him for up to date information about local festivals and where to go Prosecco & wine tasting.
Our group of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our holiday!

“Fantastic and joyful experience!”

It was a very nice experience!! We've rented this property for our wedding celebration and a small vacation with family. For both occasions it was just perfect: very beautiful views of the mountains, the house is nice and clean, inside you have all you need to enjoy your stay. The territory around the house is surrounded with an olive oil trees, and you have enough space outside just to sit and relax watching sunset in the mountains ;)
The host was very friendly and helpful. In a 10 min. walk you have a medieval village Arqua Petrarca to visit and in 40 min. you can get to the seaside by car.
The best word to describe this place is Fantastic, we really did enjoy our stay ;)
Thank you Matteo!!

“Lovely Home & View of the Euganean Hills With A Golf Motif”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My girlfriend and I spent a week at this lovely home near Arqua Petrarca called the "Holiday House". While we had a small challenge locating it, once we did we were very delighted with the accomodations. Our host, Matteo, met us and proudly showed us his glorious home and estate. He gave us a tour of the house and all its amenities. It was spotlessly clean and loaded with things to use in the kitchen. We told Matteo we were interested in playing some golf. He was happy to hear that being an avid golfing fan himself. He showed us his well-manicured putting green and said feel free to use it. He also said we could play the "hole" he created in front of his house provided the windows were closed and shuttered (We didn't dare but he was sincere in his offer). In the evening of our first night, Matteo graciously shared some sausage he had barbecued...a very thoughtful gesture...just typical of his overall hospitality. He also lent us a set of golf clubs to use while we were there, again very generous and saving us a few bucks when we eventually played at nearby courses. Matteo was a kind, fascinating individual who does bass fishing tour guides and also maintains a decent sized olive grove. He was a great host, checking in on us but was never overbearing. I would recommend this fine, relaxing home enthusiastically to anyone visiting the area. There were only 2 of us but the house could easily accomodate a large family and more! I wish Matteo all the best.

“Fantastic property, beautiful views, great location!”

What a superb find! Casa Petrarca is in a wonderful tranquil location, is spacious, clean, comfortable, and equipped to a high standard with everything you need for a great stay. The large garden has amazing views and is the perfect place to while away the hours sampling the extremely palatable local wine! Playing table tennis was another great pastime!
The property is very well located - we did intent to make trips to places such as Lake Garda, The Dolomites and Verona which are in easy reach, but with so much history and natural beauty on the doorstep, we preferred to stay local visiting Padua, the National Park, various wonderful palaces, and of course Arqua Petrarca itself which is very historic and interesting. We did however make a trip to Venice which never disappoints!
Matteo, the owner, is a very personable, easy to talk to, and is a fountain of knowledge regarding the area. He is there when you need him, but is not at all intrusive. If you are into fishing, (which we unfortunately aren't!), it sounds like he arranges some amazing trips!
Wish we were still there!

Rooms with a view, stunning scenery, fantastic hospitality and great facilities at the accommodation...what more could you ask for? Not much!
We have just returned from this beautiful house/area and hope to return next year with friends ...we traveled as a couple.
Matteo was a great host, very friendly and helpful and had a fountain of knowledge on where to visit.
The house was beautiful, very clean and had great facilities. The views were stunning and to sit out on an evening, watching the sun go down over the hills will be a lasting memory.
We also got the train to Venice for one night which was very easy and direct from the local station. Worth a visit.
We will definitely be returning. Do no hesitate to book as you will not regret it.
