villa layout
The villa lies in the village of Sermide, a tranquil spot about 52 kms from Mantova, in the nature reserve along the river Po. This is an ideal place for reaching in at the most an hour by car cities such as Verona, Padova, Ferrara, Bologna and, in an hour and a half, Venice, Lake Garda and Ravenna. A tour such as this is also interesting for the opportunity of trying the specialities of the cuisine and the wines of three different italian regions, all of which have different characteristics but are united by their excellence. The villa is furnished with pieces from the 1800s and is equipped with air-conditioning in four bedrooms, satellite TV, PC with internet connection, dishwasher and washing-machine, CD player and DVD, barbecue, covered parking for 2 cars, and guests are also offered a GPS satellite navigation system. The large italian garden is very well maintained, and full of tall trees.
The elegant atmosphere of the villa and the wonderful garden are often chosen by couples from all over the world to celebrate their wedding.
On the side of the orchard guests have the use of the private (4x9m) swimming-pool, and in the same area there is a small outhouse with dressing-room, bathroom and external shower. The wardens live in a separate and completely independant building. The attractive village is just a short walk away (150 metres) and you will find bars, restaurants, food shops, banks and a post office. Along the river Po (about 500 metres from the villa) you can go for long walks in a natural setting with river-side vegetation and several species of water-birds.

We wanted to thank you very much for all your help in organising our visit to Sermide. We had a truly excellent time in a beautiful house with charming people in the village.
We would always be happy to recommend Ville in Italia to anyone who asks about our source of accommodation.

Once again many thanks - we would certainly hope to use your company again.

Best regards

Je ne vous ai pas dit à quel point nous étions contents de la maison de Sermide que vous nous aviez trouvée pour le mois d’aout dernier. C’est une belle maison, très agréable à l’intérieur comme à l’extérieur. Sa situation nous a permis de découvrir des villes que nous ne connaissions pas. Les gardiens étaient de belles personnes, adorables, généreuses et efficaces.

Je reviens vers vous donc pour l’année prochaine ...

Bien cordialement

"From the moment I stepped out of our car, I felt as if I were home. The beautiful landscaping and the park-like setting were breathtaking. The villa's interior was both elegant and comfortable with a great sense of history. Our room was bright and a nicely appointed with an ensuite bath. The kitchen was so charming, with room for everyone to gather for breakfast. It was also easy to cook, so our group could enjoy the spacious and comfortable dining room for those evenings when we decided to shop in the local stores and prepare our own feasts!
There is onsite management of the property, so you never have to worry because there is always someone there to ensure that all your needs are met.
The villa is well-situated and day trips to surrounding towns and cities were easy to make.
My husband and I often felt torn about doing day trips because it meant we had to leave the comfort of this wonderful home. The only tip I have for anyone visiting Villa Castellani is to be prepared to relax and make yourself at home."

"From the moment our car turned into the drive at Villa Castellani I immediately felt like I had stepped back in time.The Villa is quite grand with a expansive lush lawn. I felt as if I had become part of Merchant Ivory or Visconti film. The interior of the Villa is equally impressive, beautifully furnished and a wonderful marble staircase intended I'm sure for grand entrances. The town of Sermide is a perfect location , a starting point for day trips ,for example: Verona, Bologna & Venice are easy drives . Sermide is friendly Village with charming townsfolk ready to meet new guests in the Village. I can see the Villa as the location for a wedding or other family events other than for use as a holiday stay. The total experience was so peaceful and continues to be so; all I need do is recall my memories of being there.
I am extremely thankful for having been introduced to Villa Castellani and having the experience i did."

"We had a very nice vacation in this house.
It is beautiful and very private !
Very good for a relaxed holliday.
We loved the swimmingpool.
You need a car to drive to nice cities in the neighbourhood.( Verona, Venetië,Mantova)
The service from " Ville in Italia " was perfect.

"My husband and I are working our way around Italy's various regions, so we don't often return to a place more than once. But on two separate occasions, we talked eight other friends into going with us to this wonderful villa in a small town along the Po for an authentic italian experience. We cooked together, ate together, laughed together and traveled to amazing places within an hour from the villa: Mantova, Padova, Vicenza, Verona, Bologna, Parma, Modena . . . and many more. Venice is 90 minutes away. Not that you'll want to leave Villa Castellani and the lovely village of Sermide. Set on two acres of private land, with a pool for seasonal swimming, helpful caretakers right next door, this is truly a place of warmth, comfort and history. Five bedrooms and three+ baths make it very manageable for large groups and the outside space makes it feel very much like home. I highly recommend Villa Castellani, owned by the wonderful Castellani family; this is their "country" home, and we are very grateful that we found it. Yes, we will be back again. To read more about this marvelous experience, see this:

"The Villa is situated in the heart of Mantova and is also amongst the greenery, making for a very peaceful stay. With an ample amount of bedrooms and beds, travelling with a large group has never been so easy. There is something for people of almost every age group and the swimming pool is one of the best feautures of this venue. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone interested in a relaxing time away
(April 2012)
"We enjoyed our stay with everything being very easy.Both the owners and the wardens were very helpful to us.
Regards John"
