“What a joke!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

I would not recommend this place. It is totally overpriced for what it offers:

- 120 EUR a night for a breakfast that is as plain as: one type of cheese, one type of speck, no eggs, some bread, ready made jam and some serial and a fruit sample. Two juices, not fresh.

- The pool photo is a gimmick! It has been taken from such an angle as if it is a real pool. Well, only when you arrive to get to see that it is an actual buckets that lies on top of the grass

- The owners are too commercial and not friendly. I would had hoped that for a family run place they would be nicer to their guests

- The area around the farmhouse is the most industrial area you have seen, it seems to the the car manufacturing district

- There's is no offering of drinks or snacks throughout the day even if you wanted to buy them

- The 'free' WiFi code I was given was valid for an hour!

So don't be fooled like we did, for a few euros less to go out there. Stay in the centre of Verona and if staying by the pool was something you want to do, look for a different destination.

We (two young woman of 31 and 35) staid here for 3 nights. We want to relax and see the city. The owners Carlos & Donatella are very friendly! When we arrived too early (9am) they offered breakfast and we could change our clothes for a bikini to stay at the pool until our room was ready. Breakfast is nice and fresh. The pool is big and above the ground (pooltowels are available). We booked a triple room and it was spacious, clean and typical Italian/clasic style (typical for Verona area). So if you like a trendy stay this is not your thing. Simple supermarket takes 10 minutes walk. There is a bus to town all day. You have to walk just 5 minutes and the bus takes you in 15 minutes to town. A taxi cost Euro 15 after midnight. Carlos gives you a ride (return) for the Opera. Neighbourhood is nothing special but save and the b&b very rustic. Overall we liked it very much!!

A lovely, friendly b & b experience. Clean and comfortable room, although the staircase was steep with bulky bags. Beautiful gardens and swimming pool (separate towels provided). A substantial breakfast. Carlo was a very helpful host, with good suggestions about where to eat, and how to get about. He also offered a space in his garage for our bikes, so we didn't have to have them in our car while driving around. Easy access to town. Definitely recommended.

Horse's House B&B turned out to be much more than we had imagined. The accommodations are very well equipped, and each room is very private while sharing a common area and with access to workout gear and a sauna. The breakfast was perfect for us with a selection of pastries, cold cereals, and fruit. Carlo is a wonderful host, and provided us with lots of information about Verona and a great map that we used while siteseeing. I would highly recommended this place to anyone looking to visit Verona, and I would also suggest staying more than one night because Verona is a wonderful GEM of a town!

Room Tip: We stayed in MC Jac and loved it!

My friends and I stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast for one night to attend the Opera in Verona. The owner and his wife are a lovely couple who were very attentive with their guests. They were very accomodating and helpful. They also provided a bus shuttle to and from the Opera as an additional service at no extra cost if one doesn't want to drive into Verona. Free parking is available on the primises.

The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and air conditioned. Each room has its own bathroom with its personal touch. The premises are surrounded with trees, a pool and a garden to enjoy the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. They have a small outdoors exercise space and a room with a sauna. What I liked most about this place is the relaxed atmosphere it offers singles, couples and families away from the hustle of the city of Verona.

This oasis is located outside of Verona (10 mins by car) and not easy to reach with public transportation. It was a bit confusing to find, however, once we arrived we were completely satisfied. I will certainly return and highly recommend this place!
