We enjoyed the property, which we shared with another couple.
The set-up of the bedrooms and baths was excellent for privacy.
The outdoor deck with pool looking out over the valley was lovely. The evening sunsets and moonrise were spectacular.
We used La Tempesta as a base to explore the Veneto and Dolomites. We enjoyed being able to visit many lovely towns and indulge my special passion--villas designed by Palladio.
Follow the Prosecco Road and, if you are daring, drive the hairpin road through the Dolomites.

Excellent. This is the nicest villa we have rented, and we have been renting for over 20 years.
It is completely and beautifully equipped, with everything just as the owner claims. But, the really remarkable thing is the view. If you know Asolo, at the top of the hill above it is the Rocca fortress. People climb the steep trail just to see the Veneto from above. But, just East of this is another hill and the highest house on this one is Villa Tempesta the advantage is that you can drive to to this private view and see it by standing up in the swimming pool.
Lots of small towns to visit, each with a few spots that make the guide books. Very green and flat, except for the hilltop places like Asolo.

Absolutely fabulous! Villa has all the top of the line appliances and kitchen filled with everything you would have in your own home (or would like to have). The housekeeper was wonderful and the caretaker of the house was very gracious and helpful.
The view was outstanding. Setting terrific! Everything top of the line.
The road to this villa is somewhat challenging. The narrow, winding road could be a problem for some renters. We were hesitant to come back to the villa at night because of the road. Once we got used to it, we were fine. Also, one of the bedrooms was a little smaller compared to the rest of the villa.
Loved the peace and quiet of this small hilltop town. Town was lovely and somewhat upscale so everything very clean and tailored.

Villa Tempesta was simply beautiful. I found it quite difficult to want to leave the patio for anywhere else, as the vista of the Venetian plain (and the local castle!) could set anyone's mind at ease. The home was stylishly and tastefully decorated containing traditional furniture with contemporary twists.
When venturing out, the walk to town is a serene gravelled road lined with trees through which one catches glimpses of Dolomites.
The home was very well maintained and situated close to town, readily accessible by foot. Michela, who met me and gave me the keys, was very nice and helpful. The lady who came to clean was also lovely.
