Frassanelle Parco and Villa Papafava

Frassanelle Parco and Villa Papafava

Villa Papafava is a Neoclassical Venetian Villa located in the Frassanelle estate, which has been owned by the Papafava family, descendants of the da Carraras, since 1263.

The estate has been passed down from generation to generation, over the centuries, and the current appearance of the Villa and park reflects the restoration work initiated in 1822 by the two brothers Francesco and Alessandro Papafava with the assistance of artists such as Antonio Canova, Angelica Kaufmann, Sir Thomas Lawrence and Giuseppe Jappelli.

In addition to Villa Papafava, the Frassanelle estate includes roughly 80 hectares of farmland, a 60-hectare park, an 18-hole golf course, a farm building dating back to 1601, now available for events and receptions, and a number of farmhouses which have been recently restored and converted into holiday homes with two swimming pools at the guests' disposal.

Villa Papafava is open to visitors for guided tours from April to October.
