Lodging at Monte Ceva, Cà Vecchia in Battaglia Terme

   AGRITOURISM CA' VECCHIA è is encircled by 50 hectares of forest that is part of the Euganean Hills Regional Park and is one kilometer from Castle Catajo of which the complex was once a part. The property is comprised of large tracts of nature reserve.

   The restoration of the three rustic structures of the Cà Vecchia complex were finished in the spring of 2004. The "casa colonica" houses two appartments on the second floor:

The two rooms are called by the names "NOCCIOLO" and QUERCIA".

Both of the rooms have screened windows, a fireplace, air conditioning, tv, DVD and VHS; while the entrance, kitchen and dining room are located on the main floor where there is also a fireplace.



   The Herbarium of Mount Ceva is kept in the meeting room on the first floor of the former barn, and the ground floor is available for workshops and experiments. The turret is an ideal observatory for animal watching.

The restoration makes use of green architecture: airy roofs, eco-friendly natural lime plaster; and the plaster in the living-room is mixed with straw from the farm’s organic plantations. Central heating and sanitary water of the three units are taken care of by aBiomass Boiler, that allows reusing the waste product after pruning the trees in the woods. On the roof, instead of getting walled up, the top part of the chimney has been left open in order to let small birds build their nests and shelter.

The premises are easily accessible as they are located only 3 kilometres from the highway exit Terme Euganee off of the autostrada Padova-Bologna. We are located 13 km from Padova and 3 km from the towns Abano and Montegrotto, and 30 km from Venice. Within the estate, three paths of different lengths and difficulty have been chosen and provided with signs to give directions and to show illustrations of the botanical species; in the former barn next to the lodgings is kept the Herbarium with those of the species of Mount Ceva which are present on the Farm, which was commissioned by the estate and was carried out by Prof. Noemi Tornadore of the Geobotany Institute, Padova University. Monte Ceva and the surrounding area has been classified as the most thermal area north of the Po river. Rare species such as the Opuntia Compressa and the Sempervivum Arachnoideum are native to the area. Spring flowering is an unforgettable spectacle.


   A stay at Cà Vecchia is especially recommended for visitors who feel the need to plunge into the peace of the environing wood and who would enjoy seeing the fallow deer which often come to quench their thirst at the fountains next to the buildings, and it would also please people who would like to be within short distance of an extremely interesting historical and cultural tourist centre.Even in the hottest summers the weather is temperate, thanks to the “microclimate” due to the estate’s privileged situation in a small valley.

Many thermal pools and spas are located in the immediate vicinity.
