Built in an ancient court and recently restored, the house mixes the charm of the typical architecture of that time with modern elements. In the warm atmosphere, created by oak-beamed, tile floor, thick dark walls and monachine windows, you will find all the comfort that you need for your stay near the city of Love, Verona, proclaimed from UNESCO as world heritage.
In the kitchen you will find an oven, coffee machine, microwave, laundry-machine, dryer, air-conditioner. The sleeping area is designed for creating a protected nest and it’s located in the mansard of the accommodation. In the living area you will find a very comfy sofa, which can be also a double bed; the sofa makes the little house a nice refuge, not just for the couple but also for a family or a group of friends.
Crossed the threshold, you can walk on a cobblestones path, along the river (as you can see from the pictures) that will lead you, in just a few metres, in the centre of the medieval village. Once there, you can enjoy breakfast, which we would be glad to offer to you, sat on the bank of the River Adige.
