Villa Wollemborg History
Villa Wollemborg, located in Loreggia in the province of Padua, is a nineteenth-century style villa but originally built in the fifteenth century. The primitive body of the noble residence was built in the first half of the sixteenth century as a seasonal residence by the Paduan Polcastro family, who had already acquired land ownership in Loreggia since the mid-fifteenth century: the house is not yet a large palace, but on the east side they already find a barchessa with a colombara tower and a cedraia, while a wall contains all the pertinence. A first enlargement took place at the beginning of the seventeenth century with the enlargement of the barchesse, with the construction of a new east-high wing with four floors, still existing today, of an orchard inside the boundary wall and a rectangular pond, taken up and modified by Jappelli at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The villa was however substantially restructured by Girolamo Polcastro in the first decades of the nineteenth century, on the occasion of his wedding with Caterina Querini Stampalia; the dwelling then took on the aspect that it still preserves: a beautiful classical building in the westernmost part, with a large south-facing façade facing the Italian garden and the seventeenth-century wing leaning against the new building. The villa passed, after some lively testamentary events, to the Querini Stampalia Foundation of Venice, which sold it to the Wollemborgs in 1870; after just a century, in 1970 it was bought by the Gomiero family who still owns it.
Villa Wollemborg hosts a restaurant whose cuisine blends the gastronomic tradition with the most modern preparation techniques, to enhance the ancient genuineness of local products.
With its large rooms and suggestive views of over six hectares of parkland, Villa Wollemborg is also an ideal location for ceremonies and special events.
