Customer Reviews

Overall:
Just wonderful! Very pleasant, professional check-in; we met at the nearby town and were escorted to the house. Beautiful property, very well supplied and easy to enjoy. Extensive outdoor areas that allowed for people to spread out and enjoy reasonable privacy. Wonderful, easy pool and air conditioning made the stay delightful despite extremely hot weather. We just stayed and relaxed!
Enjoyed Most:
Hard to pick! The rooms were all delightful...great for three couples....and the pool was a hit with all.
Enjoyed Least:
Bathroom on the upper level was not air conditioned...due to he unusually hot weather, AC or a fan would have been appreciated. Relatively challenging drive up the hill with a couple of blind switchbacks, made a bit scary by dump truck traffic due to some stone work being delivered just below the house.
Surrounding Area:
Close enough to Venice to go for the evening and Asolo, nearby, is just charming. La Rocca made for great pictures... The view from the house was magical! Several villas by Palladio nearby.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Asolo, a picturesque village with a great small plaza, small history museum and several lovely restaurants. Several small nice shops, gourmet food store and several cafes. Walking down relatively easy, uphill was tough for some.
Tips or Restaurants:
Dinner in the terrace garden at the Hotel Cipriani
Directions:
Meeting at the Cafe Centrale is perfect....no problem getting there.
Check In Out:
Great on site coordinator.

Debby, July

Enjoyed Most:
Central location--could walk into the community

Had to supply our own toilet paper and paper towels were not replenished.
Surrounding Area:
Quaint community and surrounding area. Very easy to navigate to Venice for the day via the train.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Asolo - yes
Tips or Restaurants:
Just enjoy the area around you. Easy access.
Directions:
GPS - Yes, and would not recommend renting a car without one.

Very easy to connect with the assistant who showed us to the property via the fountain at main area of Asolo.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Deb, November

Overall:
It was amazing.
Enjoyed Most:
The views were incredible, having our own pool was a focal point for when we were at the house together. Also, they provided a meal for us the first night and stocked the property with essentials (food/wine/detergent) to get us comfortable for the first couple of days.
Surrounding Area:
Great hiking trails just down the hill from the villa. Easy to walk to town and grab food/coffee. Very beautiful region of Italy.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Asolo. Yes (although a bit steep).
Tips or Restaurants:
Supermarket in Castelcucco - a Despar, open most of the day.
Directions:
The GPS worked well. However, meeting the property manager in Asolo and then driving up was the best way, most helpful.
Check In Out:
Very organized and efficient.

Don , July

Overall:
Definitely excellent. It was much more than what we expected and we expected a lot! This was a family trip (all of us coming from different destinations) and all six of us were immediately taken in by the experience. The villa, views, gardens, surroundings and staff were fantastic. After a long day of traveling from our different destinations, it was a luxury to sit down that first night to a delicious dinner left for us by the wonderful staff. Also, they had bought us a few staples to get us started until we could make it to the store. After that first night's experience, we knew that the rest of our time there would be a happy one.
Enjoyed Most:
The location of the villa took our breath away. I never imagined that it would be on a hilltop with spectacular views from every single room in the house...what a treat. The villa was a wonderful combination of modern world comfort with the Old World ambiance. We started our days with breakfast out on the deck watching Asolo come to life and after a heavy day of sightseeing we ended them at night sitting by the pool enjoying Asolo's lights.
Enjoyed Least:
That we could not stay longer!!! I know that some people might find the road to access the house a bit intimidating, but we didn't find it to be a problem.
Surrounding Area:
The surrounding area was just as picturesque as the villa itself. We used the villa as our base and traveled to various towns, cities and the Dolomites. Honestly, the distances to many of these places were not too long.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest small town was Asolo. It was within walking distance (about 20 min.) and the trail is beautiful, but it is very steep and I would not recommend it for people who have trouble getting around. However, driving to town takes just 5 minutes and there is parking which you pay for during certain hours and is free in the evening. It was never a problem. The town of Asolo itself is a dream and we enjoyed discovering all of its corners.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring what makes you comfortable. Definitely read and take to heart the suggestions that are given by the owner in the instructions book. The restaurant suggestions are right on the money. We enjoyed sitting in the Cafe Central people watching while some of us drank Prosecco and others ate the wonderful gelato desserts. Everywhere we went, we were treated extremely well.
Directions:
We did use the GPS by setting the coordinates given to us by the owner prior to our arrival. Nevertheless, it was helpful to have our first meeting with the keyholder at Cafe Central and have her guide us the first time to the property.
Check In Out:
The check in process with Francesca went very smoothly. She explained everything clearly, therefore, we received no surprises at the checkout. It was all a very easy process.

Luisa, July

Overall:
We enjoyed the property, which we shared with another couple. The set-up of the bedrooms and baths was excellent for privacy.
Enjoyed Most:
The outdoor deck with pool looking out over the valley was lovely. The evening sunsets and moonrise were spectacular.
Enjoyed Least:
The walk into town is a rather strenuous trek up and down the slope. The narrow road leading into the property requires a confident and competent driver. Fortunately, my partner and I have driven extensively in Italy and other countries. The kitchen is extremely well equipped but the knives would not cut soft butter!
Surrounding Area:
We used La Tempesta as a base to explore the Veneto and Dolomites. We enjoyed being able to visit many lovely towns and indulge my special passion--villas designed by Palladio. Follow the Prosecco Road and, if you are daring, drive the hairpin road through the Dolomites.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest town was Asolo. It was not really within walking distance, as I described above. There is limited parking in the village and we would have preferred to be able to walk from La Tempesta. We learned to stop at any market we found open as we traveled. There is a small green grocer and a deli that are very good in the village but with limited items and hours.
Tips or Restaurants:
Make sure you bring any personal needs. Toilet tissue is not supplied. We often had a nice lunch in towns we were visiting and then planned on making a light supper at the villa. Bistrot in Asolo was a good find. Renters should know ahead of time that the village is closed to traffic on Sundays as are the food stores so if you arrive, as we did, late afternoon on Saturday do not plan on getting supplies until Monday. There was a meal prepared for us for Saturday night which was very welcome.
Directions:
A GPS is absolutely necessary in this area.

Mary, September

Overall:
Excellent. This is the nicest villa we have rented, and we have been renting for over 20 years.
Enjoyed Most:
It is completely and beautifully equipped, with everything just as the owner claims. But, the really remarkable thing is the view. If you know Asolo, at the top of the hill above it is the Rocca fortress. People climb the steep trail just to see the Veneto from above. But, just East of this is another hill and the highest house on this one is Villa Tempesta the advantage is that you can drive to to this private view and see it by standing up in the swimming pool.
Enjoyed Least:
It is in fact, a 25 minute walk to the center of Asolo, Caffe Centro, no matter which way you go. But, that is the price of a view from above and serenity and privacy. Plus, we found plenty of parking in the village which is free after 7 pm.
Surrounding Area:
Lots of small towns to visit, each with a few spots that make the guide books. Very green and flat, except for the hilltop places like Asolo.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Only Asolo is in walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
There are 3 very good restaurants in Asolo, all in the book the owner leaves in the house. The greeter, the maid, was polite and punctual. Bring suntan oil.
Directions:
Check just before going to get the name of the greeter and local mobile phone confirmed. In our case, it changed twice beginning Wednesday for a Saturday arrival.

John, August

Overall:
Absolutely fabulous! Villa has all the top of the line appliances and kitchen filled with everything you would have in your own home (or would like to have). The housekeeper was wonderful and the caretaker of the house was very gracious and helpful.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was outstanding. Setting terrific! Everything top of the line.
Enjoyed Least:
The road to this villa is somewhat challenging. The narrow, winding road could be a problem for some renters. We were hesitant to come back to the villa at night because of the road. Once we got used to it, we were fine. Also, one of the bedrooms was a little smaller compared to the rest of the villa.
Surrounding Area:
Loved the peace and quiet of this small hilltop town. Town was lovely and somewhat upscale so everything very clean and tailored.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Asolo was about a 15 minute walk down the hill. Looked farther while driving, but very doable. However, you would have to be in pretty good shape to walk around this town. Very hilly!
Tips or Restaurants:
Mosquitos were a problem some nights. Bring insect repellent. Didn't eat in town because we had an excellent cook with us. This definitely would be a villa for a cook because kitchen is very well supplied with everything. The grocery store is about 10 to 15 minutes away by car. There is an excellent bakery along the main highway. Brought our own coffee and filters but didn't really need to.
Directions:
Definitely need a GPS! Even with GPS, it was confusing going up to the villa because we always had to go through town (even though there was a road which led right up to villa). Still, we don't know what we did wrong every time. We think the road was one way and the GPS just didn't get it straight.
Check In Out:
The property manager was very flexible and helpful.

Joyce and Metty, September

Overall:
Villa Tempesta was simply beautiful. I found it quite difficult to want to leave the patio for anywhere else, as the vista of the Venetian plain (and the local castle!) could set anyone's mind at ease. The home was stylishly and tastefully decorated containing traditional furniture with contemporary twists. When venturing out, the walk to town is a serene gravelled road lined with trees through which one catches glimpses of Dolomites.
Enjoyed Most:
The home was very well maintained and situated close to town, readily accessible by foot. Michela, who met me and gave me the keys, was very nice and helpful. The lady who came to clean was also lovely.
Enjoyed Least:
None!
Nearby Events or Locales:<br<Asolo is sort of an Italian Carmel, California. A very wealthy clientele set in a charming little village comprised of small specialty shops, a couple of "locals" cafes, and a couple of fine dining stops.
Tips and Restaurants:
To travel to the train took about 20 minutes by car and the train into Venice is only about 45 minutes.
