During your stay you’ll take up residence at the Albergo Ristorante Contarini, just north of Campolongo sul Brenta and just south of Valstagna, and about 6 miles/9 km north of Bassano del Grappa.

Rooms have a balcony with a spectacular panoramic view of Monte Grappa towering above. All are comfortable, spotless and spacious. They’re tastefully decorated with hand crafted wooden furnishings, fashionable fabrics and of course a private bathroom complete with bidet and shower. You may request a room with bathtub, but only rooms in the newer annex are equipped with tubs. For your convenience, the albergo has an excellent, full-service restaurant and bar.

Unpack your luggage and live in a charming country inn nestled in the beautiful Brenta River valley. Strike out daily for a different adventure. This is the real Italy, living, eating and moving about in The Mecca for Cyclists according to Bicycling magazine. Fortunately it’s still a well-kept secret.

The famous Ciclopista del Brenta runs past the front door, here along a local road; but most of its length from here to Lago di Caldonazzo is along dedicated bike paths.

The hotel has an annex for cyclists set high for spectacular views and quiet after a day of cycling.

Family members run this fine hotel and restaurant and genuinely love their business.

Rooms are spacious and offer splendid views over the Brenta River valley and of Monte Grappa.

The hotel has an excellent restaurant and bar, specializing in Veneto specialties.
