A striking and perennial icon of the Treviso landscape, San Salvatore Castle lies in the heart of the Veneto Region, enfolded in the embrace of the gently-rolling Prosecco hills. For the past eight centuries, it has dominated the plain leading up the gorgeous city of Venice.
It is the symbol of the Counts of Collalto family whose history dates back as far as 958, when Berengarius, King of Italy, granted to Rambaldo I, ancestor of the Collaltos, the Curtis of Lovadina, a vast plain of meadows, pastures and vineyards at the foot of the hills of Treviso. Over the course of these many centuries, the castle has played an important role in a host of complex historical events.
It served as a source of protection and refuge for the local peopleand for the settlements in the March of Treviso; as the engine of orderly agricultural and economic growth; and, over the course of the Renaissance, the gathering place for many artists, poets, and musicians: Tomaso da Modena, the Pordenone, Gaspara Stampa, Monsignor della Casa and Cima Da Conegliano.
Next to the Castle, sloping downwards, stands the well-known Azienda Agricola Conte Collalto, listed as one of the most ancient Italian wineries.
The heir of this historic and unique tradition is Princess Isabella Collalto de Croÿ.With the refinement and style that marks a true princess and the unequalled dedication and love that made possible the preservation of the dynasty heritage and of its entire territory during its millennium-long history, Isabella Collalto opens the gates of this exclusive estate to share the charm of its elegant spaces and its ancient secrets in occasion of guided visits, magnificent stays and important events.
