BEAUTIFUL 17THC FARMHOUSE WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS BETWEEN VERONA & LAKE GARDA

Negrar Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, sleeps 6 to 8; ideal for sight-seeing, wine-tasting and walking.

Perfect for a relaxing rural holiday, or as a base to explore the natural beauties and cultural riches of the Veneto. 'Il Castello' is situated on the spur of a vine-clad hill in Valpolicella, a famous wine-growing region of Italy. Our lovingly restored and attractively furnished 17th century farmhouse is only 20 minutes from Verona, one of Italy's most beautiful cities, with its famous opera festival in the Roman Arena, and about 40 minutes from the beaches and spectacular scenery of Lake Garda. It also offers ready access to the mountains and to the many historic and beautiful cities of the Veneto (Venice, Mantua, Vicenza, Ferrara, Padua etc). Opening onto a peaceful courtyard, the house has a large living/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen (with dishwasher), four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a laundry room with washing machine and third WC. A wisteria-covered terrace, with stunning views of the mountains towards Lake Garda, provides a wonderful eating-out and sitting area.

Il Castello: The property is part of a large seventeenth-century farmhouse complex built around a shared courtyard. The main farmhouse, on the opposite side of the courtyard, is occupied by permanent Italian residents, including the owner's brother-in-law, Hugh Ward-Perkins and his Italian wife, Paola, who are both bilingual, and are always very ready to help with problems and queries.

The accommodation: The accommodation is in two parts, either side of the impressive entrance portico into the courtyard. The main part includes a large downstairs sitting/dining-room, and an attractive and well-appointed kitchen; upstairs is the main double bedroom, a bathroom tiled in local pink marble, and a second smaller bedroom with two beds.

The other part of the accommodation, the ‘Fienile’, is a converted hayloft. Upstairs, reached by an external staircase, is a double bedroom with spectacular views across the valley, and an attached shower-room with WC. Downstairs is another double bedroom/playroom, most suitable as a children's bedroom, with double doors opening onto the courtyard. Next to it is a laundry-room, with a washing machine, sink and WC.

It is possible for those staying in the Fienile to be reasonably autonomous, which makes it well-suited to having family or friends to stay. The division of the house also makes it pleasant to use in smaller numbers.

Outside Areas: There are two sitting-out areas with shade - one under a portico on the courtyard side; the other on the valley side under a pergola planted with wisteria, oleanders and a fig tree.

The courtyard is shared with the other owners, and provides a pleasant sitting-out area and a safe and sheltered play space for children, with an olive tree, fig tree, and the original large stone washing basins filled with running water from a stream which runs underneath the courtyard. There are chairs and a stone table for eating out on the terrace, as well as deck-chairs, and a barbecue.

We had a FANTASTIC time at your house and it was perfect for our needs. The wisteria covered patio was superb for sitting, talking, eating and drinking, laughing. Very much enjoyed Negrar, so non touristy. Christine Leith, June 2004.
Just a note to say what a great holiday Jane and I had at Il Castello. It was just as we remembered it, the 'vendemmia' was in full swing...Thanks for providing the perfect location. Nick Hickman, September 2004.
I just want to let you know about the lovely time we had at Il Castello. The place was perfect, the views were stunning...Your brother-in-law Hugh could not have been nicer or more helpful - from directions to restaurant recommendations to Francesca's wine. Janice Owens, Jan 2005.
We had a really wonderful time in the area and found the house perfectly equipped for all our needs. I was dying to tell your next guests about Enoteca in Negrar. What a place! The food, the wine ,the setting all superb. Elaine Davies, July 2005.

A lovely peaceful house set amongst beautiful countryside with great views. We ate all our meals outside under the vine on the terrace. Really relaxing - you could stroll into the local town with its market and restaurants, or through the woods up the hill, or drive easily into Verona. We thoroughly recommend it!

A house for friends and family!

From the first moment we arrived to having to leave Il Castello, we loved every minute! The house is welcoming and cozy and with late April weather being less than cooperative, the six of us cooked almost every night and enjoyed sitting around the large wooden table with a fire going all evening. The kitchen is well equipped, the house is very clean, beds are comfortable and above all - the house is authentic.

We did venture out down the hill to buy wine from the neighboring winery - which is excellent and great value, and we also managed to stroll to a nearby restaurant for a fantastic pizza. (The name of the restaurant, among others, is in a book left at the house with lots of tips and comments from other guests.) But most of the time we were happy to hang out around the house. And when the sun did pop out for a bit we sat on the terrace over looking the hills and the village below or in front of the huge wooden door to the courtyard. We could have explored the area more but chose to enjoy the house. So If you are looking for a place that offers that option plus a location that enables you to explore the area then Il Castello is the place! We will definitely return and hope to stay longer- in fact as soon as we got home, we put in a request for dates next year. I can highly recommend a stay at this lovely house.

What a brilliant cosy place to stay. This House has it all. Wonderful open fireplace for cooler nights. Lovely clean comfy beds. Detached House lovely as well and perfect for extra guests. This is real rustic Italy. Wonderful neighbours, great delicious Italian wines can be purchased nice and cheap from the Vineyard you can see from the House. Views are to die for. Close to Verona, the playground, and supermarkets. You won't regret staying here and we would gladly come back to this quiet, tranquil spot.

We had a great time at il Castello : hot and sunny, perfect to enjoy the veranda, a bit of rest, card games and BBQ with the kids.
We’ve been visiting the beautiful town of Verona several times, we enjoyed a great Traviata at the Arena, we went swimming at the Garda Lake and hiking at the Monte Baldo and in the hills.
Also we followed the owner's advice for shops and restaurants in the village and got very happy with it.
The house was clean, well maintained and is renovated/decorated with taste.

Il Castello is peacefully situated, about 1 kilometre above the small town of Negrar, near Verona, which has excellent specialist food shops (butcher, greengrocer, baker etc.), a weekly market, and a large supermarket close by. There are lots of fantastic restaurants and pizzerias in the area. Negrar is the centre of the famous Valpolicella wine-growing region, characterised by excellent wineries and romantic medieval churches, set against a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery. Verona (about 20 minutes away), built on the banks of the River Adige, is one of Italy's most beautiful and civilised cities, with its Roman bridge and amphitheatre, world-famous Opera Festival in the Roman Arena di Verona, medieval castle, a host of wonderful churches, and stylish bars, restaurants and shops. Il Castello is perfectly located for access to Verona, the beaches of Lake Garda, and to Mantua, Vicenza and Venice, but its hillside location ensures tranquillity and a degree of cool in the heat of summer.

Other Activities: Arena di Verona's world-famous open air Opera Festival in the Roman Amphitheatre. Vinitaly (6-9 April 2014) - a major annual wine fair with exhibitors from all over the world. Personalised wine-tasting tours of small local vineyards; discover the delights of Amarone, Ripasso, & Recioto and buy direct from the dedicated individuals who make them. Eat in down-to-earth local trattorias or Michelin-starred restaurants. Soak up the atmosphere of some of Italy's least discovered but most beautiful medieval and Renaissance cities. Visit the villas of Palladio. Swim in the dramatic mountain scenery of Lake Garda. Let off steam at Gardaland Water Park.
