Wonderful stay and well located for touring the area
Five ladies stayed at the villa and we had plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable..... the location was perfect for touring the area.... Venice, Padua, Mantua, Verona, Soave, Vicenza and Lake Garda. A magical week came to a close all too quickly.
Barbara was the ultimate hostess.... charming and informative and helped us with restaurant suggestions, reservations, booking transportation etc.
I do Air BnB in my own home and I have to say this is five star all the way.
Plus if you want to just relax and hang out by the pool, this is divine too.
We usually go to Italy for our Summer holiday as a family and consider that Il Granaio was one of the very best places we have stayed in. A spacious top floor apartment which included a large, extremely comfortable, living area (much bigger than it appears to be in the photograph). We were made to feel extremely welcome by our host, Barbara, who was good enough to wait up for us until 1am on our arrival day (late arrival owing to our flight time). The main building was very grand, with lovely grounds and a large, well-maintained swimming pool overlooking the valley below. The location was probably the best we have ever stayed in, with a huge number of attractive locations to reach within 1 hour's drive (including Venice). Towns within 45 minutes drive included Verona, Vincenza and Mantova. The lovely towns dotting the East coast of lake Garda were also within easy reach (Lazise is our favourite- small, less crowded than others, with a beautiful harbour). Our teenage sons enjoyed para-sailing on Lake Garda, and we all enjoyed swimming in its clear waters. We enjoy cooking as well as visiting the many fantastic restaurants nearby, so were pleased to find the kitchen was well-equipped and modern. Absolutely no criticisms of the accommodation or the customer service. 2 very small suggestion: perhaps have some water in the fridge for late arrivers and some bread? Also, the owners could possibly create a more comfortable outside dining/drinking area for those staying in this apartment. One last word- we were privileged to be able to talk to Barbara and Carlo's mother, an expert in Italian art and delightful company at the pool!
The appartment "il Granaio" corresponds to the top floor of a 18th century mansion. It is very tastefully and comfortably decorated with some period furniture. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, there is nothing missing or broken. The layout was perfect for our group of four adults and three kids. There were games and toys for the children. The owners are helpful and speak excellent English. A great base to discover Verona, Venice and other great places in the area. We would definitely recommend it.
Insgesamt ein schönes Objekt.
Hausherren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Das einzige was nicht so gefiel waren die noch vorhandenen Privatsachen in den Kleiderschränken, man konnte diese nicht uneingeschränkt nutzen. Anwesen hatte flair und war traditionell. Uns hat es gut gefallen!
Bel appartement, superbe piscine, très bien situé pour les visites
Schönes Haus und schöne Ferien
Wir hatten eine tolle Woche hier, 6 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder. Tagsüber gibt's viele Ausflugsziele, und abends haben wir das wunderbare Wohnzimmer genießen, perfekt für Abendessen und "Zusammensitzen". Das Wetter hat uns nicht mehr als einen kurzen Sprung ins Pool erlaubt, aber es ist gross und hat einen wunderschönen Aussicht.
Die Einhaber sind sehr nett und haben uns gute Tips gegeben, so wie Restaurants, Läden, usw.
Ich habe sehr geschätzt dass der Preis schon vom Anfang an komplett war, keine Überraschungen am Ende mit verschiedenen Zusatzkosten.
The location of Villa Costafredda allows you to reach, through easy and quick road connections, some important cities of art, first of all Verona (20 km) and Venice (100 km). Vicenza (40km), home of the famous architect and sculptor Palladio, Padua (70 km), Mantua (60km). Guests wishing to spend a holiday between relaxation and culture, can also easily reach Lake Garda (Peschiera, and Lazise, 45 km, the nearest centers). For families with children, the opportunity is great to visit the famous Gardaland amusement park (46 km).
The place also presents interesting opportunities for lovers of jogging, cycling (both on the road and in mountain biking).
Being in an area famous for its vineyards, the Villa is an ideal starting point for visits to the numerous surrounding wineries.
Equally interesting are the food and wine tours proposed by the local tourist offices.
