Guestbook comments from the owner

I had the pleasure to rent the Villa with a group of friends and family. The Villa is just not the same as the pictures, much larger and beautiful than I anticipated.

Amazing place, the billiard room, t.v. room and the pool were the main places of entertainment for kids and adults alike.

We did organize outside cookouts and dinners. The owners were very friendly and helpful when we needed to hire extra help for any occasion.

I highly recommend this place for a vacation.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and we have a wonderful time. The historic Villa is beautiful, filled with stunning antiques and family heirlooms. The Villa was perfect for us, 4 adults and 2 children. We used the Villa as a home base for many daytrips, always returning for swimming and wine in the evenings. The grounds are spacious and well-maintain. All of us had a lovely time. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!

Une merveilleuse maison

  • 5 of 5

Nous n'oublierons jamais l'atmosphère de cette maison, sa belle simplicité et son caractère historique.

Elle est joliment et simplement meublée par les tableaux et les meubles de la famille.

Manuela était d'une présence amicale, discrète et toujours prête à nous aider si nous avions besoin de quoi que ce soit.

Lovely villa, lovely people

  • 4 of 5

Villa Maffei Rizzardi is a gorgeous villa in the countryside, but close enough to many cities for site seeing. Hard to believe, but it really is as lovely as the pictures show. Our group was two families with four teenagers between us and it was the perfect location for us. The rooms were sizable and well appointed. The pool is good-sized with a lovely jasmine-covered entryway room. We used it every day.

Several of the owners live on site, but you do feel like you have the space to yourselves. Emanuella was so kind - she keeps beautiful gardens and brought us fresh herbs and vegetables each day. She gave great advice on places to visit and insider information on how to make each day trip successful.

We took several convenient day trips (Venice, Verona, Mantova), but thoroughly enjoyed our days relaxing by the pool or in the hammock. You could also easily spend a relaxing week just staying "at home".

A small issue for those who are used to fast internet access or rely on it for work away from the office...we had trouble getting access part of the week. This seemed to get fixed later in the week but was still slow. However, Emanuella was very responsive in trying to get this working and respond to any other requests we had.

All in all this was a wonderful vacation and we would highly recommend Villa Maffei Rizzardi!!! Thank you Emanuella and Giulia for being such gracious hosts!
