Country house in the hills around Asolo"La Rovaia"
For art lovers there is plenty of choice. Asolo, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, loved by Browning, and Eleonora Duse by many intellectuals: to visit the Cathedral with works by Lorenzo Lotto and Jacopo da Ponte, the Civic Museum, the Rock. Walk under the arcades, a coffee in the Bar Centrale. In September there is a festival of classical music. Every second Sunday of the month, then an antiques market and many other activities. Just an hour away are Venice, Padua, Vicenza, Belluno, Feltre; many of these places are also connected by train, just choose the departure station, the closest are the train stations of Cornuda, Montebelluna or Castelfranco Veneto). Half an hour from Bassano del Grappa (famous for the Old Bridge and for being the town of "Grappa" the liquor) and Castelfranco Veneto. Possagno, the home of Canova, the neoclassical sculptor with the Gipsoteca and the Tomb. Also to visit and not miss "Villa Maser" of the architect Vincenzo Palladio in Maser. Continuing towards Altivole, the monumental "Brion Tomb" in the outlying administrative district of San Vito is worthy of mention: it is an architectural masterpiece by Carlo Scarpa and stands in the little cemetery of the village; at Altivole, on the other hand, the obligatory stop is the Barco della Regina Cornaro complex, the country residence of the former Queen of Cyprus Caterina Cornaro at the end of the Fifteenth century. At Fanzolo one finds Villa Emo Capodilista, another Palladian work now owned by the Credito Cooperativo Trevigiano bank. Visit and test the Valdobbiadene area, known as the land of prosecco. Beautiful also nearby the romanesque Abbey of Follina. For lovers of nature walks on the Grappa and the hills are countless. The area is also well known to cyclists, because it is the area of training of many teams and on holidays our streets are full of runners who train and fans who love our trails for the variety of road situations with climbs, descents , straight, all surrounded by a lush green. For golf lovers "Asolo Golf Club" (just 10 minutes away from La Rovaia) in Cavaso, for paragliding and hang gliding lovers the spot of Borso del Grappa, for rafting lovers courses in Valbrenta next to Bassano del Grappa. And then by car you can visit the Dolomites (Cortina d'Ampezzo, San Martino di Castrozza etcc).

This house has been a very good choice. It is located in the countryside of Veneto, next to asolo, surrounded by a very peaceful nature. We can say that it is at the same time isolated from the crowd in the city and very close to everything you would like to do.
It is spacious and it has a lot of facilities.
Our host has been very friendly and I would definitely recommend the house to everyone!
