In the enchanting countryside just 20 minutes far away from Venice lies the Leon d’Oro Hotel Restaurant, surrounded by a huge beautiful park provided with two swimming pools, one Jacuzzi, a ducks lake and many games suitable for all ages. The former Franciscans monastery, built in 1860 on behalf of the Bishop of Padua, was acquired in 1960 by the Family Forzutti and skilfully turned into a charming hotel. Thanks to their previous experience in hospitality in Venice, the Forzuttis’ family friendly welcome guests and make them feel very much at home. Guests will have bikes at their disposal to enjoy the Palladian Villas along the Brenta River and the close Venetian lagoon.
The Wellness Centre with Sauna, Turkish Bath and Jacuzzi will make more pleasant the stay during winter time. Definitively a different way of visiting Venice! It takes only 20 minutes by train to reach the major art cities such as Venice, Padua and Treviso. The guestrooms with their fine antique furniture or flower decorations are an oasis of peacefulness. Each room is soundproof, provided with all modern comforts and looks onto the wide park with ancient trees. The ones in the ground floor have a private garden, some others have king-size beds and twin showers.
In the hotel restaurant traditional and regional dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients. The refined cuisine matches the quality of the wine list. The stay could also be enriched by a delicious candlelight dinner in Venice at the San Giorgio restaurant, also run by the family Forzutti, which is just a stone’s throw from Saint Mark’s square. The Leon d’Oro hotel is the ideal setting for business meetings up to 200 people to be arranged in the panoramic hall, equipped with all the modern devices.
