Villa San Liberale was built on the side of pre-existing structures in the 17thcentury, near the homonymous Oratory, at the edge of a town with an important history, Feltre, known as “Urbs picta” owing to its buildings with richly frescoed facades, and surrounded by Renaissance-era walls.
Over time, the Villa passed from family to family through inheritance, sale or marriage, and was always known as a privileged site of encounters and sojourns, often hosting poets and writers, like Giosuè Carducci and Ippolito Nievo.
Surrounded by a nine-hectare park, the Villa stands in a splendid, sunny position overlooking the valley. Tall trees, warm hospitality and an old-fashioned atmosphere give visitors a feeling of “home” and of tranquility.
Not far away, visible like a sort of stage set, are what Rudolf Messner considers the most beautiful mountains in the world, the Dolomites, known, due to their particular color, as the Monti Pallidi – Pale Mountains.
