Villa Ducale

Dolo – Riviera del Brenta – Venezia

Hotel and Restaurant

In 1884 a Venetian nobleman by the name of Count Giulio Rocca, built a beautiful country villa on the banks of the River Brenta. The villa was built upon the ruins of an even older villa, erected in the XVII century.

Surrounded by a garden of over 20.000 square meters, are part of the property a little consecrated church, that dates back to ‘700, a dependance and the stables.

On the ground floor there are beautiful Venetian terrazzo floor, and on the first one, precious inlaid wood floors. Frescoed walls and ceiling chase each other throughout the villa, embellished with Mura- no mirrors and chandeliers.

Villa Ducale is now hotel, restaurant and meeting centre, and today as in the past hospitality at its best is practised.
The Hotel has 11 rooms, all overlooking the park, 2 Junior Suites, 1 Suite in an external dependance, 3 Superior rooms, 4 Classic rooms, 1 Superior Family room, all are frescoed and embellished with precious fabrics, antique furniture, Murano chandeliers and mirrors.

Our chef prepares seafood dishes of Venetian tradition for you to rediscover the ancient flavours of our territory, the result is wonderful to look at and delicious to the palate. The restaurant is open everyday except on Tuesday, both for hotel guests and for those who want to spend a romantic evening or celebrate an anniversary, a birthday or a business lunch or dinner.
