The Relais Alcova del Doge is a delightful, romantic charming hotel, housed in an ancient nineteenth century palazzo in the heart of the magnificent Riviera del Brenta, traditional holiday residence of the Venetian aristocrats and still a popular tourist attraction due to its splendid Venetian Villas that are worth a day trip by bicycle or by the Burchielli that skim the gentle Brenta river waters in the summer, docking here and there to enjoy the villas.
Relais offers an intimate, romantic yet down-home atmosphere, tastefully and imaginatively created by hosts Michela and Sabrina, attentively selecting each piece of furniture, furnishing and upholstery, visiting antique stores, collector shops and markets, and returning the original Venetian terrace floors, ceiling beams and original hall frescoes to their ancient splendour.
During the summer, after a full day touring the wonders of Venice, Padua or magnificent Riviera del Brenta Venetian Villas, you can relax in the quiet of interior courtyard, sipping an excellent glass of Prosecco in the shade of the wisterias. You can take advantage of the bicycles, free, to discover splendid surroundings, rich in nature, culture and excellent seafood restaurants.
The romantic bedrooms of the Alcova del Doge reflect all the particular care and passion that was put into choosing the right fabrics and furnishings by the house owners, to let you have an extraordinary experience. The furniture was carefully selected and different colours were used for each room in order to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. From the windows you can admire a wonderful view of the courtyard, a vigorous park of an old, antique villa and the suggestive and relaxing flowing of the Brenta River, giving you a real sense of peace and rest.
