The warmth of Anna and Jacques on our arrival made up for the difficulty at finding road
signs in Italy… The stay has been memorable and any guest not sampling Anna’s cuisine has
missed a major treat.

Dear Anna and Jacques,
Is there a better place to stay in Italy? We doubt it. The warmth of hospitality we have
received from you in such a splendid setting will long be remembered by us, grazie!

One of the best holiday experiences.

  • Submitted: Mar 23, 2014

Anna and Jacques (our hosts) were very hospitable and welcoming, always on hand to offer advice and assitance - where to visit, what to do etc. The room was immaculate as was the rest of the villa. We were treated to a wonderfull breakfast each morning and an evening meal of the most fantastic home made pasta. Anna is a very talented cook, and presented a variety of meals each day.

We look forward to our next visit - we have returned here for the past 10 years.

really a special place to stay!

I am so happy that we have found that really special place and met Anna and her husband Jacques! I would never expect that between the buildings there is such a paradise, hidden from the years :) They were so kind to us - Thank you Anna! The breakfast is nice. There is hot water too. The house is old but authentic, you can see many interesting things in it, a lot of history. Rooms are different and comfortable. We spent couple of days there and got the shopping day - Saturday (I think) where in front of the cathedral you can see the whole village :)
I would love to come again and spend another peaceful morning in front of the lake :)

You cannot go wrong with this family run b&b! The owners make you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Anna is a wonderful cook and gets a lot of pleasure feeding her guests. The rooms are spotless and comfortable and can't find any faults! Situated walking distance from the town and plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas.

The best B&B in Italy!

My husband and I have stayed with Anna and Jacques many times and look forward to many more. They are delightful hosts and a wonderful couple who makes you feel at home the minute you step into their family heirloom. Their lovely home offers individual entrances to your en-suite room filled with touches of "Old World" Italy abound. The home is beautifully landscaped with a pond and lovely, seasonal flowers. Gracing the dining room is an awesome, 13 Century hand painted, fresco. Such an elegant setting for one of Anna's home cooked Italian cuisine! Her meals would make the finest Italian restaurant In New York envious of her gourmet touch! Lots to see and do while at Villa san Pietro (be sure to visit Lake Garda - - simply gorgeous!).

If you plan on visiting Italy, then you MUST stay with Anna, Jacques and their young son, Alex. It will be a relaxing and fun retreat you will NEVER forget!

More than a Bed and Breakfast

  • Submitted: Jan 20, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We have visited this delightful 16th Century Villa many times and plan to return in 2014. Anna and Jacques are delightful hosts and we have enjoyed lots of very sociable evening in the beautiful courtyard garden with the duomo towering above our heads. Anna's typically Italian dinners have always been very well received by our fellow guests and ourselves. All of the rooms (and we have stayed in each one of them!) are beautifully furnished with family antiques and are very clean and spacious.
Montichiari is an excellent jumping off point for many places of interest including Lake Garda and its many ferry trips. Verona, Milan, Venice are very accessible and there are also delightful drives into the countryside to the south. Jacques is always extremely helpful with ideas of places of interest and driving directions and there are many travel books and brochures available to all guests in the beautiful dining room.
We have taken many friends to Villa San Pietro, and recommended it to several others, from both sides of the Atlantic and all of them have endorsed our high opinion.

Overwhelming!

our first experience of B&B and we were overwhelmed by the welcoming hosts, thank you Anna and Jacques!
The suite was both cosy and spacious , the wonderful food for dinner the first night was a special one and we will long remember. The garden is a jewel and hard to beleive we are in the centre. A remarkable stay . Frescoes are fascinating and so special that you cared enough to have these restored and conserved.

What a wonderful experience staying at The Villa San Pietro was. Anna and Jacques (our hosts) were so warm and friendly, making us feel like an old friend returning after a long absence. The 500 year old villa has been meticulously restored ( I just wished the walls could talk) and the grounds are wonderful, boasting a pond with ducks and flowers abounding everywhere. Each morning breakfast was served with a variety of fresh baked breads and cakes, fruit and steaming coffee. The only other thing I could have wished for was a longer stay!

Wonderful welcome on a cold day.

We stayed at this wonderful B & B during December whilst on a Rugby Trip. The welcome from Anna and Jacques could not have been warmer. They came out in the snow to guide us to their historic home. During our two night stay nothing was too much trouble with helpful advice and a great meal cooked by Anna. They were perfect hosts. We would love to return if we are even in the area again.
