What do you particularly like about this part of Veneto
This Veneto area is still protected from massive tourism and gives you the chance to stay in a peaceful authentic Italian village, blend in with the locals, taste great local food and great wines.
La Scuola Guesthouse is the result of a very conservative renovation of the little old school building. Used as a school until 1964, it is now a charming B&B. The interior design shows our passion for vintage furniture and colorful, happy decoration.
Each room has a different theme and it’s inspired by a school subject. From Geography to Arithmetic, from Science to History and Letters, each room has its own colors, different furniture and lots of details and memorabilia related to the subject. To end with the romantic Teacher’s room with the Belle Epoque bathtub... a true story: in the ‘40s a teacher used to sleep in the attic because the road was too long to get back home each day. Finally, the Alphabet room is where we serve breakfast (when it is too chilly to have it outdoors) and where guests can relax, have tea and read a book.
Located on the first floor, its large windows allow full enjoyment of the courtyard, the bell tower and the view above the plains. Decorated in the colors of Italy because it teaches about our history, our literature through its authors. The bathroom, in retro-style, has a large shower. For two people.
Quaint windows in this double room look out over the valley. The room has original wood floors and the old sloping ceiling restored and exposed. This room tells the tales of the Veneto region, of the Altopiano and of faraway lands. The bathroom includes a walk-in shower. During the summer the room remains cool thanks to the breeze that always caresses our school.
A very romantic room in the attic, with a gorgeous view of the valley from the bed. Ceilings restored to the original state and a splendid Belle Époque bathtub, en suite... in the room! Have a luxurious bath overlooking this marvelous view. This room has a Teacher theme because we heard stories about a teacher sleeping in the attic because at that time the road wouldn’t allow her to go back home to Vicenza.
During the summer the room remains cool thanks to the breeze that always caresses our school. The room has a bathtub, no shower.

A few highlights we recommend in the area:
La Scuola is located on the southern side of the Asiago Plateau and overlooks a breathtaking panorama on the Veneto plain. Our village, Lusiana Conco is halfway from mountain spots and historical beautiful cities. You can immerse yourself in nature or visit elegant and vibrant cities only 30 minutes away. The medieval tows of Marostica and Bassano del Grappa, the elegant Vicenza, the colorful mountain town of Asiago with its famous homonymous cheese are just a few examples.
We have a nice ‚osteria’ with local easy food very much attended by locals within easy walking distance. And there are some excellent and not-to-be-missed restaurants only 10 minutes away by car.
Venice and Verona or Lake Garda are a perfect day trip away.
From spring to late autumn, nature is luxuriant. In summer temperature is always pleasant because of the altitude (800 metres).
