Find the best wine hotels in Veneto set in absolutely stunning locations in the region of Veneto.
Lovers of fine fizz will enjoy a "strada del prosecco" tour of the rolling hills north of Venice. Friendly and down-to-earth Agriturismo Le Favole (lefavole.com, doubles from €70 B&B) at the eastern end of this wine region, just over the Friuli border, has enormous farmhouse rooms and recently added a pool. Load the boot with their excellent proseccos, from €4 a bottle.
Further west, in prosecco capital Valdobbiadene, Locanda Sandi (locandasandi.it) is a pretty guesthouse in the grounds of the Villa Sandi estate, which makes a dozen types of prosecco, plus still wines and grappas. Rustic doubles, all beams and exposed stone walls, cost €90 a night.
For something a bit smarter, Villa Barberina (villabarberina.it), on the town's northern edge, producer of the acclaimed Nino Franco prosecco, also has six opulent doubles (from €150) in a classic 18th-century villa with split-level swimming pool. Further south, near Treviso, Tenuta Santomè (tenutasantome.com) makes "solar-powered" prosecco, using only energy from an array of photovoltaic panels to power its winery, saving, it reckons, almost 100 tonnes of CO2 a year. It has 10 bright flower-themed (but not flowery) rooms from €100.
