Covid-19 – Commitment to Cleanliness & Safety Program

We at Villa Cipriani have always been committed to providing our guests and our employees with the health and safety measures that ensured a stay free of concerns. And now in light of the Covid19 situation, we are even more focused on these important issues.

We are strictly adhering to the protocols and guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Italian authorities. We have elevated the level of our already strict practices around food handling, sanitation, disinfection and cleaning, to ensure that we meet and exceed the government and global health organization recommended guidelines.

For many of us travel is a reward to our hard work, a time we look forward to relaxing and enjoying exploring new or old places, in the company of friends, family or on our own, a time to recharge our batteries to return to our lives full of creativity, and unforgettable memories.

As the world begins to regain control of the present crisis and we start dreaming of traveling again, Villa Cipriani will be ready to welcome you in a safe and healthy environment.

The Villa and its Garden

Built during the Palladian Era, the villa underwent significant improvements in the 18th century. In 1889, the English poet Robert Browning purchased the property. Under his guidance, the villa acquired its noble Tuscan aspect, which blends perfectly with the gentle hills of Asolo.

It was then sold to a rich Venetian family in 1902, that used it for many years as a holiday home and was later rented out and converted into an inn.

In 1962, the Villa was purchased by Rupert Guinness, the second Count of Iveagh, from the famous Irish beer-producing family, a known businessman, politician, philanthropist, generous supporter of scientific research, Chancellor of the University of Dublin and then, landowner in Asolo.

In the 60s, Lord Iveagh hired Giuseppe Cipriani - founder of Harrys Bar in Venice, inventor of the Bellini cocktail and of the Carpaccio - to transform it into a charming hotel: Villa Cipriani. So, the picturesque inn was transformed into the small country jewel that guests now enjoy.

In 1974, Villa Cipriani became part of the Ciga Hotels chain and in 1995, it became part of the Sheraton group and then Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.

In 2012, industrialist from Treviso Massimo Zanetti purchased Villa Cipriani and, year after year, thanks to continuous con preservative restorations, contributed to maintaining the elegance, refinement, and family charm.

The garden

The outdoor areas are carefully designed in every detail, where to rediscover the inner harmony, surrounded by a magical and romantic atmosphere. A story of colours and fragrances accompany the guests in every season.

The garden is undoubtedly Villa Cipriani’s crowning glory, recipient of the Top 10 Magnificent Gardens award from Historic Hotels Worldwide and included in the American Horticultural Society’s Garden of Excellence circuit since the middle of the nineties. The colours and fragrance will accompany you throughout the seasons: from the explosion of colours with tulips in spring, to the sweet scent of jasmine in May, from the wave of perfume from the olea fragrans in September, to the orange shades of the persimmon trees in the winter.

Our guests will relax in the panoramic infinity pool nestled in the green garden, winner of the Best Italian Outdoor Hotel Pool at the Italian Pool Awards in 2014.

Immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of our garden and enjoy a regenerative holiday in Asolo!
