Wonderful week at a beautiful villa
Submitted: July 17, 2012
Stayed: March 2012
The owners were very helpful to us prior to arrival, providing directions and promptly answering the many questions I had about the villa and area. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Filiberto and his beautiful family. We immediately felt welcomed at "at home". The villa was very clean and beautifully appointed, and the kitchen well-equiped for cooking when we chose to. The only negative was the electrical system, which took some getting used to, but once we figured that out (with some help) all was fine. The beds were very comfortable and all linens were crisp and clean. Having a washer and dryer allowed us to pack less, and was a big plus. I am smiling as I write this just remembering opening all the windows and doors and having the spring air and sunshine help us start the day. Speaking of starting the day, the coffee maker is the Italian version, which take some patience and time, and was fine with us, but some people may prefer to bring instant.
The location was wonderful for going into Verona as well as accessing highways to travel to some of the less touristy places. Lake Garda was beautiful (don't miss the castle) and the village of Soave was so relaxing; stepping back in time. Villa Avesa's location made trips into Verona very easy, and there is so much more than Juliette's balcony to see.
The photos here do not capture how beautiful the villa and property really are, perched up on a hill surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. Many thanks to Filiberto and family, and especially for the special shopping trip our daughter was treated to!!! A wonderful villa and perfect week of exploring!
