Villa Cavazza Querini

The villa, built in Visinale, a hamlet of Pasiano di Pordenone - stands out for being one of the oldest in western Friuli. The West Wing of this authentic Venetian Villa was taken over by a local family, who with passion and dedication carried out an accurate restoration project - recovering the entire residence, developed on three floors - setting up an exclusive Bed & Breakfast: Ca 'Eighteenth century.

Immersed in the green countryside and located in a strategic point for those who want to visit the area or move for work commitments, on the border between Friuli and Veneto, between Treviso and Pordenone.

After careful restoration, it has become a period residence, furnished in style and in harmony, where to stay in a welcoming and welcoming environment.
