We spent three nights at this wonderful home. The area is beautiful, and the accommodation is ideal: we had a large bedroom, comfortable bed, and the kitchen is fully equipped. The views are beautiful. As all reviewers note, Viviana herself is perhaps the "icing on the cake". This lady is extremely friendly without being intrusive. We appreciated her English language skills, and she gave us wonderful advice about restaurants. I wish that we could have stayed longer in order to have enjoyed more of the food! Marco was helpful to us when we needed advice about driving to Verona.
