The noble past of Corte Marchesini
Do you know that the Hotel Antica Corte Marchesini was born from an ancient villa of the seventeenth century completely renovated? It is the majestic summer residence in the countryside that the noble Venetian family of the Marchesini built between 1670 and 1700. The choice of the place (the ancient channel of the river Brenta) was meant to strengthen its presence outside Venice. In fact, the country villa gave prestige to the family. It was a sign of economic ability, distinction, and a secure source of income. And it was also a place to flaunt your wealth by organizing parties and dances.
But back to our elegant structure. At the time, the complex included the farm, the house of Gastaldo, a stable for harvests and tools called “Ca’ Longa” and the villa. Next to the latter stood an oratory dedicated to S. Filippo Neri. At the end of 1700, they were both demolished, perhaps because the floods of the river caused water infiltration. They remained instead the rustic building where the crops and tools were placed and the house of Gastaldo. The latter was a building with a simple Palladian style with a portico in the center through which you could access the barn.
In Campagna Lupia you will find yourself in an area dotted with Venetian villas, once summer residences of Venetian or Paduan nobles. They were also agricultural centers for the local farmers, many of whom lived in the villa. Today you still have the opportunity to breathe in that past, made of work and leisure. During your stay at the Hotel Antica Corte Marchesini, you can visit the nearby villas. You will see frescoes and sculptures, ballrooms and antique furniture, labyrinths, and gardens in bloom.
A young soul for a constantly evolving present
If the noble past has left traces in our structure, its young soul will welcome you from the first moment. Here you will feel at home thanks to the warm personality of our owner Carmen and her daughter Erika. With their care and attention, they will make you feel comfortable at any time of the day.
Our hospitality has the warm colors of gold and red, predominant in the decor of the Villa. To give you a taste of the upper middle class that once lived in these rooms will be precisely our fine fabrics. You will see them in the bedrooms, as well as in the common rooms.
With us, the guest is always at the center! For this, we will pamper you with all the necessary amenities to ensure a pleasant and peaceful stay.
