Tel. 0445 749500 (IAT Tonezza del Cimone)
Villa Valmarana is located in Seghe, a village of Velo d'Astico between Piovene and Arsiero. The house, now owned by the family of Ciscato, stands in the centre of the valley of Astico in a dominant and charming location, on the foundations of an older building. It has undergone various modifications: the most radical in 1843, then it was badly damaged in 1916 and restored in 1925. The main building is neoclassical, the loggia and portico are instead from the eighteenth century, however the dovecote is attributed to architect Caregaro-Negrin. The chapel designed by Pizzoccaro and dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua, dates back to 1667.
