Whether in the junior suites in the main building or in the comfort rooms in the side wing built in 2000 - you will have a wonderful stay in a house of the Benetton dynasty.

Your first bike ride brings you to the beautiful provincial capital of Treviso. On the bike path you cycle along the former city fortification before you reach the heart of the "città delle aque". The nicknamed 'city of water' owes Treviso its infinite number of channels that run through the center. Marvel at the magnificent palaces in the center, which all come from the 12th-14th Century, the great age of Treviso. Stroll through the remarkable Piazza dei Signori and around the elegant main street Via Calmaggiore that leads from Piazza dei Signori to the cathedral. Visit the cathedral, which was rebuilt after its construction in the 12th century a number of times and presents works by Titian and Pordenone. Treviso is also known for its good food, especially for the "red radicchio". Sample this local delicacy that is raw prepared as salad, grilled or steamed.
In the morning you will cycle leisurely through the agricultural hinterland to the river Piave. Along the route some lonely roads lead to one or other stately manor. After crossing the river you will reach the wine route "Strade del Vino del Piave". Look forward to the next 15 km, as you follow the wine route of Prosecco between golden vineyards and impressive villas. Enjoy fantastic views in this charming landscape. Here the famous Pinot Grigio is pressed to perfection.
Today you will cycle to the charming small town of Castelfranco, whose origins date back to the Romans. At the crossroads of the Roman roads to Vicenza, Padua and Asolo, the "castrum" was built. It offers an impressive medieval fortress town. The historic center is still surrounded by a completely preserved brick wall, a moat and five watchtowers. The fortress was built in the 12th century by Treviso to defend itself against the emerging Padua. After rewarding break you will cycle to Fanzolo di Vedelago where the Villa Emo, another cultural highlight is waiting for you. The villa was built by the great architect Palladio 1555-1565. The house stands on a high pedestal with two service buildings with colonnades which are bounded by dovecotes. Look forward to a worthwhile guided tour (included in your package).
In the morning you take a transfer to Valdobbiadene, capital of Prosecco. On the small square cafes invite to the first cappuccino before you jump on your bikes to master you first short climb. But you will be rewarded! Look forward to the views of the almost endless vineyards. Your beautiful bike course leads from one wine village to the next wine village. Fascinating are the vineyards in the high hills, some with steep slopes, where even standing is difficult. Here the winemakers have to fight hard centimeter by centimeter and have created a unique landscape. The beauty of the landscape even led to the desire, to set up the area as a candidate for World Heritage (Unesco). Matching to the cycle day awaits you in a Prosecco tasting the evening.
The last bike tour leads you further to Treviso before you continue cycling on the bike trail which used to be a former railway line to the Natural Park of Sile. On beautiful, quiet paths you will cross by bike this Nature Park. Again and again you will see little river Sile and you will cycle sometimes right and sometimes left the shore.
You might be really in love with the area and do not feel like leaving already. But today your beautiful bike trip comes to an end after breakfast in the hotel.
