Built in 1820, Villa Panigai is an oasis of style and tranquillity easily reached from the historic centre of Vittorio Veneto. It is surrounded by the charm of history and the natural beauty of the Prosecco hills, which are Unesco trust since 2019.
In the Venetian Villas catalogue of 1954, the Villa is described as follows:
“Small and clear neoclassical building at the end of an avenue. Its façade is adorned with four half-pilasters with capitals, a cornice and a indented tympanum. In the center, arched window with stone balcony. It is believed that it was designed by a Panigai family member, a priest, who was interested in architecture. In the room on the first floor, under the plasterwork, there are traces of Tiepolo’s frescoes. Garden and adjacencies. In good condition. " (Mazzotti, 1954: 522)
Between the main body of the Villa and the barchessa there is an enchanting lawn. This is delimited by the Himalayan palm trees of the entrance avenue and an elegant balustrade.
In the area behind the Villa there is another large lawn planted with vineyards, vegetables, and flowers.
The Villa, as a private residence, is currently not open to the public.
For tourists however, it is available a comfortable and luxurious accommodation for medium-short stays at the Villa's guesthouse.
