This is a wonderful house and great service by Marco, his father and housekeeper Michael!
If you are looking for a stylish house in nature, Italian lifestyle, spending time with a group of friends or family, cooking together, sitting in the garden, having a pool party, go to local farmers markets and similar - this house is for you!
We stayed at the house for three nights with a group of 16 people.
The house and garden are beautiful, clean and well maintained.
In the house you find 8 large bedrooms with bathrooms each. Many of the rooms feature bath tubs, one even includes a whirlpool. There is no AC but for us in June it was fine to sleep without AC. The kitchen is well equipped, also features two fridges for your party supplies. All rooms and bedrooms feature beautiful furniture and interior and a lot of art pieces. The owners actually hold a weeklong art event every year.
The house stands by itself surrounded by a garden and acres. Corn and tobacco are grown here. In midst of a pear plantage they set up a pool. The pool is bigger than it looks on the pictures.
There is WIFI in the lower level of the house and the connection is slow. It is fine for looking up restaurants etc. but will not be sufficient if you plan to stream music or similar.
We rented big loudspeakers via Marco to put on some music. We got high quality equipment at a low price and there are no neighbours who would complain.
Supermarkets, gas stations and local farmers markets are nearby within 10min driving distance. Coming by car is recommended as the house is located in a rural area. You can take day trips to Verona or lake Garda easily.
The communication with Marco was fast, detailed, friendly and very helpful. His father came by one or two times and gave us advice on nearby activities. Michael is the housekeeper who lives next to the villa. He is a nice guy from Sri Lanka who is always there to help you with whatever you need around the house or garden.
The house features a beautiful outdoor oven and grill. One night Michael grilled a barbecue for us and one night he baked pizza. In both cases we purchased the supplies and ingredients ourselves and he serviced the grill or oven. I can highly recommend this as it is not only tasty but also a fun group activity.
All in all the house is super recommendable and we had a great time!
