Overview

Kick back on the porch of this luxury B&B with a glass of Valpolicella wine, made from grapes grown in the valley below the garden. Just beyond the vineyards sprawling all around this 18th-century villa, you’ll find the historic city of Verona 20 minutes to the south and the beautiful expanse of Lake Garda 30 minutes to the west.

 

It’s the ideal location for couples looking for peaceful surroundings, but within easy reach of culture, mountains and lakes. And wine-lovers will be in heaven, with many Valpolicella tasting rooms nearby.

 

In warmer weather, take a swim in the chic swimming pool, and when it’s chillier, the adjacent hot tub beckons - both with views over the vines. Out of the water, grab a magazine and flip through it on the sunloungers or under the garden’s olive trees. Later, poke your into the 13th-century chapel on the grounds, built in stone and swathed in ivy.

 

Later, retreat to the comfy sofas indoors. La Magioca bar is well stocked of excellent wine labels and spirits to enjoy anywhere in the property. Have a glass of exquisite Amarone, the most famous wine from the region, or try Recioto, a sublime sweet red wine made nearby. The owner Signora Marisa will make sure you feel at home, all day long.

Rooms

The villa’s eight rooms all have their own unique style. The two Garden Suites have four-poster beds and private terraces. Others have wood-beamed ceilings and whirlpool baths. But all have romantic floral decor, Italian furnishings and abundant natural light. Bathrooms have either showers or baths, and most have stone walls and wooden floors.

Dining

Enjoy a breakfast of cakes, pastries, fresh fruit and juices served inside or in the garden, and coffees, teas, wines and simple snacks are available throughout the day.

 

Next door to the B&B is Locanda 800, a traditional restaurant serving classic Veronese cuisine with modern flair. In the surrounding Valpolicella region and nearby Verona, you’ll find many excellent Italian restaurants to suit all tastes.

Location

Just 13 km from Verona, the Negrar di Valpolicella is home of the great Amarone and Recioto wines.

 

It is a medium-sized municipality, a human-sized town that extends for about 40 square kilometers and welcomes more than 17 thousand inhabitants in an area nestled with charm between the Lessini Mountains, Valpolicella and the outskirts of Verona.

 

Negrar di Valpolicella is a lively town that loves to reunite the community in celebration. It is no coincidence that it hosts several popular events and festivals, which have lasted for several years now. Events that combine tradition and modernity, characterised by live music, sporting events, food stands with typical products.

 

Among the most important events, on the first Saturday of December the Vigna di Negrar Group organizes "Candlelight Negrar" and then the "Community Feast" proposed in September by the Parish of Negrar. The famous "Magnalonga Settembrina" is also held in the same month, a food and wine walk attracting thousands of fans from all over Italy.

 

And on Easter and Easter weekend, the symbol of the country is the "Palio del Recioto and Amarone" with a tasting, culture and music program that closes on Tuesday after Easter with the awards for the winners of the amateurs cycling race "Palio del Recioto Grand Prix".

 

The Venetian villas of Negrar are at least fifteen and constitute one of its main attractions together with the Amarone. These are buildings of considerable historical-artistic value, mostly built between 1600 and 1700, dating back to the era of Venetian domination when the rich Veronese landowners loved to move periodically to the countryside to follow agricultural production or to enjoy the landscape on holiday.

 

In particular, the eighteenth-century Villa Rovereti Rizzardi stands out, built on a project by the architect Filippo Messedaglia, a mix of architectural styles including Baroque and Renaissance; it is embellished with a large garden which is perhaps one of the most successful examples of Italian garden in Veneto.
