The Residence Villa Bottacin

Immersed in relaxation and history

The villa of Nicolò Bottacin (Vicenza 1805 – Padua 1876) was built in 1854 based on a design by the Ticino architect G. Bernardi.

Bottacin was welcomed into the cultural elite of Trieste thanks to his reputation as a collector, expert botanist and as responsible for numerous prestigious assignments.
He was a friend of Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg, resident in Miramare Castle, who often loved to take “a drive to the Villa”.

The Villa, now protected by the Superintendence of Fine Arts, is characterized by an eclectic style, which integrates Scottish influences mixed with Italian elements, battlements, balconies, terraces and a three-storey turret with an octagonal plan.

It was once surrounded by a fabulous park much larger than the one you can admire now and of which there is documentation in the watercolors by Albert Rieger, exhibited at the “Bottacin Museum” in Padua.

The museum also preserves sculptures, paintings and other art objects that Bottacin had purchased or commissioned to furnish the Villa, as well as one of the most important numismatic collections in the world.

In 2004 the Villa underwent a careful restoration which transformed it into a residence, managed for years by the Tassi family.

The garden and the swimming pool

Today the Residence Villa Bottacin is surrounded by a large garden, part of the original, with numerous trees and plants, particularly flowering in spring and summer.
One part is used for parking our guests’ cars.

In front of the Villa the outdoor swimming pool is generally open from May to October.
There is space around the pool for an area equipped with sun loungers and deck chairs where you can relax in the sun or under the shade of a tree in the company of a good book.
The swimming pool is open all day and is illuminated in the evening and is the ideal place to enjoy a nice swim.

In the summer period the garden is the enchanting setting for guests’ breakfast.
