A very special place. I hardly call it B&B because it feels like home. Taffy is really a special lady with a big smile. The rooms are small but comfortable with a wonderful view of the vineyards and the garden. The breakfast was served in a small room with a fire place at the garden. I still can smell the bread, fresh made at home. And just like at my home, we ate tomato at breakfast. If I remember well, there was lavanda honey.
The B&B was very close to "Terme di Lazise" where you can enjoy hot water and relax. Soave as well is a nice town with nice wine. The town as well is close to Verona. So you can relax and enjoy peace at Soave and still go for a ride to Verona, the city of Love.
I marked as I travelled on January 2012 but it was not possible to choose a different date. I travelled there almost 7 years ago.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This is our home. it's a late 17th century Italian country house, made of stone, which we finished lovingly restoring in 2005. we kept every possible piece of history and put it back for you to enjoy while adding every modern comfort we could think of. It has a beautiful secluded privet garden with fruit trees, vines and flowers, which is our pride and joy. Here are some facts about our B&B:....- We're Less than 3 Km from the beautiful historical center of medieval Soave, which is dominated by a magnificent castle and still completely surrounded by it's original wall, which means that you get all the great restaurants and shops and markets, but it only takes you minutes to come back to the peace and quite of the country side.- we're very easy to reach, using properly paved roads, which means that you don't have to navigate scary narrow dirt roads (and damage your rental car) or follow complicated explanations to get here.- we're only 10 minutes drive (about 4 km.) from the motorway exit,which means that it's extremely easy, comfortable and fast, to get to and from the many famous tourist sites in the area.- although we're that close to the motorway – you'll never hear it, since the curves and hills of the country side are completely blocking the sound. which means that you can sit and drink wine in the garden or sun tan by the pool in complete peace and quite (unless of course Natalino starts practicing his opera verses or Francesco decides to play with his new tractor...) - we're surrounded by nature and vineyards, which means that you'll have to share the garden with birds (most notable of which is the barn owl and the crazy couple of cuckoo birds that are guaranteed to drive you crazy during the summer mornings...) a family of hedgehogs that live near the pool and our own dogs and cat occasionally. It also means that you can start your day by a lovely walk in some amazing views.- In our village, all with in a 5 minute walk, we have a very famous pizzeria, two local restaurants of traditional home cooked meals, a mini- market and a bar, which means that you don't have to get back into your car to get a great meal at the end of a long day.- every room has a private en suite with great water pressure in the showers and every room has a double, queen size orthopedic mattress , with extra pillows and air conditioning, which means that ...the dog will try to come and sleep in your room in the summer, so make sure you keep your door closed!...so, what are you waiting for? Come and visit, we'd love to have you. ... more less
