Villa Living: the “Brolo” and the “Barchesse”

Villa Living: the “Brolo” and the “Barchesse”

An authentic taste of the hospitality of noble Veneto Country Houses.

Arrive in Carbonera at Villa Tiepolo Passi, a grand post-Palladian 17th-century Villa Veneta, and the country house of one of the twelve venerable Veneto families that elected the first Doge of the Republic of Venice in 697.

The guided visit is led by the Villa’s owner, or by a member of his staff, taking visitors through sumptuously frescoed rooms, the historic park, the Barchesse (wings of the Villa, originally used for agricultural purposes) and Stables, and immersing them in its fascinating history, its memories and its current events to offer a charming vision of the civilized culture that came to be called “Villa Living.

Brunch, inspired by the Villa’s Brolo (vegetable garden/orchard), with fruit and vegetables, chicken and pork, as well as fresh-water, lagoon and Adriatic sea fish, offers dishes drawn from antique family recipe collections and made with products from the Estate and the local area. Brunch is served in the Tesa dei Tiepolo building on the grounds of Villa Tiepolo Passi.

Visitors can purchase chutneys, compotes and preserves to take home; quince products are a particular specialty.

In the afternoon, drive a few kilometers to Villa-Castello and the Castello di Roncade. The castle now seems an historic manor house, and in fact what strikes the visitor is the luminosity and gracefulness of the building’s 16th-century reconstruction as a Villa Veneta; its armigers and squires are still present, but all in the form of elegant statues in the garden.

Guests are welcomed by the owners or by their staff and accompanied through the Villa’s art, history and winemaking tradition, visiting the Villa itself as well as the antique wine cellar in the Barchessa with its impressive oak casks. The final stop is the shop, where visitors can taste and purchase the Castello’s prized wines, all made from Valle del Piave grapes, with local cheeses and cured meats.
