Perfect for a relaxing, wine&foodie or active holiday near mountains, Lake Garda, romantic Verona and Venice - Well located for all the best sights of northern Italy.
Our house is located in the beautiful Illasi valley on the outskirts of the ancient city of Verona. For non-simultaneous swaps our ground floor flat is available all-year round with a very spacious wood-panelled room with its own terrace where you can enjoy a glass of local Soave (the enchanting walled town and castle of Soave is a fifteen minute drive away) or Valpolicella wine or have a bbq overlooking the green hillside and cherry groves.
The room downstairs is furnished with a long wooden dining table and chairs, has cooking facilities, wood burning stove, open fireplace, large fridge, sofa and double bed (2 single beds instead of the double, or an extra single bed in addition to the double, are available on request). There is a separate bathroom with a shower and washing machine.
For the winter months as well as central heating, there is a traditional wood-burning stove (firewood provided!) which I love to cook on/in and a log-fireplace for a warm and cozy atmosphere after winter sports or sightseeing.
The gentle breeze which blows down the dry river from the nearby mountains will keep you cool in the summer. Upstairs (for 3+ people) we have a double, a single and the girls' triple bedroom (the double with large balcony), a light and spacious kitchen opening onto a balcony, comfy lounge and bathroom with large shower.
As well as the front garden (and a shady gated and fenced area suitable for dogs) we have a large (and rather wild) back garden with cherry, fig, apple, persimon, pomegranate and pear trees. It's equipped with a large table, umbrella and chairs, a swing and a pool assembled during the summer months and BBQ. Also you can use our mountain bikes (3 adult size and 1 child) on the track that starts right behind our house.
