DescriptionIn the valleys of Valpolicella, characteristic rustic with private outdoor courtyard and parking space. The solution, built in the 70s and recently renovated in the last years, is spread over two floors, from which we can admire the entire coast Gardesana Veronese in all its glory. The characteristic atmosphere is accompanied by the fireplace that acts as a protagonist in the cozy living area, located on the ground floor, with hallway and bathroom.
Through the typical red marble staircase of Verona, we reach the first floor composed of hallway, double bedroom and another room to be used as living- or reading room. We continue through a stone staircase upstairs, which houses a large double bedroom with hallway and bathroom.
Valpolicella is situated between the Lessini mountains and the Verona countryside. It consists of seven municipalities: Pescantina, San Pietro in Cariano, Negrar, Marano, Fumane, Sant'Ambrogio and Sant'Anna d'Alfaedo.
The gentle hilly landscape of Valpolicella is formed by a fan of small valleys that descend towards the plain of Verona. Rows of vineyards alternate with olive, cherry or apricot trees, which always inspire with their delicate spring flower stalls. The typical farmhouses and the small, sunny stone quarters tell of a hospitable village that has been inhabited since ancient times. Many Veronese and Venetian aristocrats have chosen these hills for their elegant residences, almost all of high artistic value, surrounded by large parks and gardens.
The northernmost part of Valpolicella is part of the Lessinia Regional Natural Park.
Exceptional natural phenomena such as the majestic Ponte di Veja at Sant'Anna d'Alfaedo or the Molina waterfalls at Fumane. Important archaeological sites such as the Grotta di Fumane show Palaeolithic settlements, while the Palaeontological and Prehistoric Museum of Sant'Anna d'Alfaedo houses numerous fossils of marine fauna found in the layers of the typical Lessinian stone and testifying to an unspoilt nature.
However, these hills are famous for their famous Valpolicella, Recioto and Amarone wines. The Valpolicella Wine Route allows you to taste the products of the wine tradition and discover the beauty of a fascinating village.
The Valpolicella area covers an area of 240 square kilometres and is located in northern Italy, in the Veneto region, northwest of Verona. This area, rich in culture and wine, is limited: to the north by the eastern foothills of the Alps, to the south by the Adige, to the west by the Valdadige and to the east by the city of Verona. The nearby Lake Garda, visible on the horizon of the house, is 15 km further west.
