Bridge, Vineyards & Venetian Villa

The Villa Pace Park Hotel Bolognese is a historic 19th-century villa that has been restored into a beautiful 95 bedroom 4-star superior hotel. It sits in 10,000 m2 of rich parkland, just outside of Treviso. We dine in the beautiful conservatory and relax in the elegant lounges between our bridge sessions.

The location is perfect for exploring Venice and the surrounding area. Regular buses stop directly outside our hotel. A 10-minute drive takes you into the centre of the lovely, walled city of Treviso, and the centre of Venice is easily reached by a 20-minute bus journey.

We have included an excursion into the Venetian countryside to delightful Bassano del Grappa, known for its wooden 13th-century Ponte Vecchio bridge spanning the river Brenta. View the frescos on the walls of the Bonaguro Palace, and amble through the Palladian-style arcades where you can buy the famous local pottery. Of course, we make a stop at the Grappa Museum for a tasting! Our second tour takes us to the Anno Domini vineyards for a tour and prosecco tasting.

The hotelier, Signora Angelica Semenzato, is a keen bridge player and is very much looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming fellow bridge players to her charming establishment.
