If the Veneto is the homeland of Umberto Bossi's Lega Nord, the Villa Serena in Montebelluna must be their unofficial mainstay. Run by a seemingly charming couple, the whole place itself is wired with CC-TV and guests are required to abide to their draconian regime. No bathing in the out-door pool without bath caps, curfew at 2 AM and no leaving the rooms the entire night (the hotel is equipped with movement sensors). In case of disobedience, "la Strega" and her blue-shirt wearing son will not hesitate to call the local carabinieri to enforce their sense of fascist order. Of course, when you pay the exaggerated bill for your window-less cell, you will be treated with a smile. But if you are looking for a place to reminiscent about the days spent in boarding school or want a taste of what it will be to live in a state-run old age home, this is your place. Otherwise, make a detour around those post-modern Fascisti.
(By the way, the Villa's interior design attests to the rule that bad manners usually come with bad taste.)
