Tenuta Castel Venezze - San Martino di Venezze

Agriturismo in Veneto

History of the Venezze family

The Estate Castel Venezze takes its name from an ancient castle that was destroyed in the September of 1404, at the hands of Uguccione dè Contrary, in the service of Nicolò d' Este in a fight against the Veneziani. 

The family Frassetti or Venezze, already in the territory since 1300, as is recorded in notarial deeds side by side to the name of the protecting Sant Martino resided in the Castle at the times of the Carraresi.

The estate is currently property of the descendants of this nobleman and prestigious family Veneta.

Coming to the beautiful Tenuta Castel Venezze-Agriturismo Ca' Venezze, you can immerse yourself in the rural italian experience. Your family can relax in the peace and safety of Contessa Maria Giustiniani's Estate. This original villa is the oldest building in the area, dating back to 1400. Beautiful antiques and ornaments reflect the elegant style of the 15th century.
With the Contessa's concern for the ecology and authenticity of Tenuta Castel Venezze, she has developed the estate to retain its rural charm but with the additions of superior modern accommodation.
