“Lovely place but a bit frustrating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

This was our third place in Italy, all agriturismo. The location, in Fumane, was lovely. Fumane is a small town with no tourists--very Italian. Corteforte itself is a pretty properly on a small vineyard. The rooms were clean and the air conditioning worked. It was quiet and peaceful and well located for the Valpolicella region.

The downsides were frustrating. This is the only location we stayed where breakfast was not included. We opted out of the extra 10-15 pp euro breakfast and ate the same food in Fumane for 8 euro total (4 people). The restaurant, the most highly rated in Trip Advisor, is not part of the agriturismo. It was also closed most of the time we were there--a fact we were misinformed about. We never got to eat there, though we were told it would be open, which was frustrating.

We arrived mid-day and there was no one to welcome us. We had to find the cleaning person and ask in halted Italian for reception. Martina, who speaks many languages, finally came to get us. She checked us in but did not tell us about breakfast or anything else for that matter. We were left almost completely on our own, which was difficult because there were gates and codes throughout the property. We were told the code for the entry gate but not for the gate to reception. We spent a lot of time knocking and calling.

We did a wine testing with Martina, which was very informative, but we had to ask about it--she did not offer.

The property and location were good, but there was a complete breakdown with communication which added unnecessary stress to our stay.

My fiancee and I stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff was lovely and the restaurant served an AMAZING gormet dinner each night for a relatively very reasonable price. We spent some time each evening on the rooftop terrace on the tower and enjoyed the quiet countryside. Verona is only about 20 minutes away and worth a few hours

This was our first trip to Italy and chose this agritusimo since they produced my favorite wine! We arrived and received by Martina that spoke good English and helped guide us through our stay. She also did a casual wine tasting on the back veranda around the olive trees with some others that had already finished and were going back for their favorites....the wines are incredible!
The rooms look just like the pics on the Internet. Our view out of our window was the vineyard which is breath taking. Pack light...there are no elevators...stone stairs that lead to a comfortable abode to rest and relax in. There is no humming of bath room fans or air-conditioning...just birds...breeze and oh, occasional notes of Italian conversation between family and workers. It is calming as you come off of the American energy buzz. Quietness
The breakfast is great...it was our first Italian breakfast of a 12 day trip and I would have to say the BEST capuicino, delivered with a smiling face that spoke no English but extended herself many times to communicate with me. Many thanks to everyone at this property that made our stay so memorable.

Room Tip: Limited bathroom space. Small shower stall. My husband is 210lbs., 5'11", if you drop anyt...

The place is very calm. We had an isolated vila called olivella. Great for a family with teenagers. If you want a peacefull farm place, that`s the place.

BTW, from the staff, lovely Martina is fluent in both English and German.

We stayed here on our honeymoon after finding it listed on an Italian BnB site. What a find! It was totally peaceful, located in a small vineyard in a small town with beautiful views. The rooms are rustic yet clean comfortable and very quiet. The best thing of all is the breakfast, which is served from the restaurant that has received michellin stars in its time. Eating there is an absolute must - for the quality of food and wine it's outstanding value and totally delicious. Another tip - head up to the roof garden at the top of the tower with a bottle of prosecco at sunset and enjoy a magical experience. No tourists to be found here - we were the only Brits all week.

This was one of the most beautiful places that we stayed on our trip. Surrounded by rolling green hills and vineyards. You definitely need a car to explore the area. Martina was very helpful and as mentioned previously the only one to speak English. Everyone else was very friendly and smiling. The breakfast (which is 10 eu extra pp) is perfect, fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, meat, pastry, fruit tarts, toast etc. Worth the extra.

The room (we stayed in the Molinara) was lovely, antique furnishings, comfortable bed, nice views. Only complaint was our shower was not draining properly, causing us to have to turn it off so it would drain and not overflow, I am sure an easy fix (although I forgot to mention it to them).

On top of all that the wines and Enoteca della Valpolicella (restaurant on site) are dreamy!

Very nice and friendly welcome. We had a room in the "tower". Very atmospheric, especially the roof terrace with good view over the surroundings. We also arranged for a wine tasting which was perfect. Very good choice of wines. As the Azienda has no restaurant, we highly recommend the adjoining Enoteca which serves excellent wines and food. There is only one point to criticize: the beds are not really comfortable as they squeak with every move due to the metallic composition.
