Little Guest invites you to a truly exceptional stay in this 17th century villa, which sits majestically in the heart of the Veneto region, south-west of Padua.

Built around 1630 by one of the most powerful families of Venice, and conceived as a place of refuge from the “urban madness”, Villa Philippine still embodies the ideal of tranquillity and refinement typical of the Italian nobility.

You can easily reach this luxurious haven of peace in 20 minutes by car from Padua airport or in 50 minutes from Venice airport. As the villa has its own heliport, you can also enjoy the beauties of the area from the air, while reaching your resort.



The red facade and triangular pediment of this spectacular property – typical of Baroque architecture – gradually reveals itself as you enter a superb 200-hectare regional park.

Oriented according to the cardinal points, and cut along two main axes, its sublime garden is world-famous for having been designed by Luigi Bernini, brother of the famous sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini, known as Le Bernin. A truly exceptional historical setting for your family holidays.

Villa Philippine, which can accommodate up to 12 people, offers:

  • 3 double bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms
  • 1 twin bedroom with bathroom
  • 2 single bedrooms with queen-size beds and bathroom
  • 6 living rooms and 1 dining room
  • 1 kitchen
  • 1 library
  • 1 huge garden designed by L. Bernini
  • 1 outdoor swimming pool
  • 1 helicopter landing area
  • Nearby 27-hole golf club



When you live in Villa Philippine, you walk in the footsteps of the princes, dukes and other great figures who trod its marble floors and sophisticated mosaics, but you also fall asleep under the gaze of the angels and sacred and allegorical figures populating the paintings and tapestries that cover its walls.

Its vast double rooms with king-size beds are authentic oases of comfort: Persian carpets, Italian or oriental period furniture, private bathroom, and views of the gardens, they are the guarantee of a delicious stay.

The simple rooms, more intimate, feature the same degree of refinement and are also cosy nests with ultra-comfortable amenities and a private bathroom.

The beautiful twin bedroom is a luxurious option to entrust your children to the arms of Morpheus: between the beauty of its painted ceiling at bedtime and the enchanting view of the gardens in the early morning, they will keep magical memories of their nights at Villa Philippine.



Your Venetian haven of peace obviously features a fully equipped kitchen, so that you and your family can prepare the best dishes.

A delivery service of local products is of course possible, as well as the preparation of gourmet breakfasts, directly presented within the walls of your villa in the morning.

Finally, if you wish to treat your senses to refined dinners, you can offer yourself the services of a chef at home.

The region of Padua is of course famous for its gastronomy. For a warm and family meal, go to Eusebio restaurant, just a stone’s throw from the villa, where your children will have the pleasure of biting into delicious pizzas nicely garnished.

If you decide to go to the city, don’t hesitate to book a table at Belle Parti, for example, which offers refined typical cuisine and high-quality service in a charming Belle-Epoque setting.

Family experiences

True incarnation of slow tourism, which was born in Italy about twenty years ago, Villa Philippine is an invitation to total disconnection, in the heart of a magnificent nature: the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills, of volcanic origin.

The Abano thermal station, located a few minutes from your luxurious residence, exploits these very ancient hot springs since antiquity. It is the perfect opportunity to offer you a cure during your stay.

The estate of the villa and its extraordinary garden will allow your children to indulge in immense games of hide-and-seek, at the foot of the fountains and mythological statues, behind the century-old trees and really well pruned groves, but above all in its giant maze, before throwing themselves headfirst into the outdoor swimming pool, in all simplicity.

The very concept of Villa Philippine is to offer its privileged guests a wide range of tailor-made activities. For the tranquillity of parents, note that a babysitting service is obviously available upon request.

Painting and art teachers can introduce your children to the beauties of their disciplines, in the very heart of this area steeped in history. Coaches of all types are also at your service: fitness, yoga, Pilates… why not aim for a balance between body and mind during your holidays?


Guided tours of the cultural and artistic sites of Padua and Venice, as well as the most beautiful museums and wineries in the region, are obviously a must during your Italian stay.

For your family getaways, walking or cycling are of course wonderful ways to discover the surrounding nature and the local heritage of the region, but you can also rent a “supercar” or a “classic car“: Alfa Romeo, Porsche,… choose your model, and set off on the small roads of the region in style.

The icing on the cake, Villa Philippine is located just 500 m from the Padua Golf Club, an institution for swing lovers, which offers a sublime 27-hole course.
