Villa Contarini, also known as Vigna Contarena, is a villa in Este, Province of Padua, in the Veneto region of northern Italy.
The name Vigna Contarena (vigna meaning « vineyard ») seems to come from the fruit trees and vines originally cultivated in the park of the villa, situated at the foot of the Euganean Hills.

The villa was built in the first years of the 17th century by Giorgio Contarini, a Senator of the Republic of Venice and a descendant of the prestigious branch of “degli Scrigni”. The villa served both a residential and agricultural purpose, with the ground floor destined for storage and labor uses, while the first floor, or piano nobile, contained the living quarters and formal rooms.
