Immersed in an intimate and secluded corner of the Venetian plain, Villa Canal in Grumolo delle Abbadesse(Vicenza), is a prestigious 18th-century Palladian-inspired residence, designed as the summer residence of the noble Badoer-Canal family of Venice.
The central manor house, on a rectangular layout, is flanked on the left by a Tuscan portico and on the right by an arched portico. The raised loggia and the portico of the stables are more recent.
The rooms inside offer a rare atmosphere with a timeless charm: the frescoed hall, the fireplace room, the globe room and the ancient Venetian kitchen, while the piano nobile can be reached by climbing the majestic staircase in local stone.
To the south, the courtyard is bordered by an enclosure wall with two original entrance portals. Next to the villa stands the small Church of Santa Giustina, built in 1697 by Giobatta Canal. The villa is surrounded by a large parkinside the enclosure wall, redesigned at the beginning of the century.
