Verona villa description

* * * * * *

Prestigious mansion set between the peaceful green hills of the Marcellise Valley, just 10 km far from Verona, Villa Sogara is a historic house full of charm and tradition. Built during the Middle Ages on the ruins of a Roman settlement, the villa has acquired its actual appearance during the 16th-18th centuries. Over time, the owners have continued to take care of the villa, which now offers to its guests all the comforts of modern times combined with an irresistible historical setting. The Villa is rented entirely to one group of people on a self-catering basis. Its location is ideal for a relaxing holiday surrounded by vineyards and secular trees, for visiting Verona and enjoying its worldwide famous happenings (Arena Opera Festival, Vinitaly, Fieracavalli etc), as well as for reaching quickly many cultural and leisure sites like Mantova, Vicenza, Padova, Ferrara, the Lake Garda and Venice. A private swimming pool is available to guests from June 1st to September 30th.

                                                Our family of ten have just returned from Villa Sogara. Words cannot begin to express the marvelous week we spent there. The villa, filled with family treasures and history., has every modern convenience and has been beautifully and thoughtfully restored by its charming and generous owners. While the hills and the vineyards enchant, Verona is a short distance away and good roads lead to Venice, Padua, lake Garda and Forte di Marmi .... a great location for exploring! The property is well maintained, clean, delightful and whose hosts become friends.A swimming pool, an elevator, washing machine and dryer, internet access,and a microwave are some of the amenities. We were sad to leave and hope to return!!!

                                                Recommended for: Sightseeing, adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway.

                                                Our group of 7 immensely enjoyed our recent stay at Villa Sogara. Everything about the villa and surrounding area was exactly as described. Tommaso was a great help answering our many questions before and after our arrival, and he and Ela were fantastic, caring hosts. For example, we spent one night of our week in the Dolomites, and I had failed to inform Tommaso and Ela of this beforehand. They were concerned about our well-being and made efforts to contact us to confirm all was well. The villa has been lovingly restored and is in fantastic condition. It was immaculately clean upon arrival, and the daily cleaning and mid-week towel change was welcomed (a service often not offered in similar properties). The pool looked very inviting, but the weather had turned a bit cool and our daily agenda so full that we weren't able to make use of it. The kitchen was fully functional and well-stocked with dishware, cookware, etc. The bathrooms were modernized and quite roomy by European standards. Tommaso and Ela suggested several restaurants and gelato shops nearby. Our favorite was Trattoria La Torre in Mezzane di Sotto. The nearby town of San Martino Buon Albergo is quite nice with a great bakery, pizza restaurant (Sapore), and gelato shop. Tommaso arranged a visit to the nearby winery of San Cassiano. Tommaso himself conducted a most informative tour of the vineyards. The owner (Mirko) then joined us and generously allowed us to sample all the varieties of Valpolicella wine, as well as some outstanding olive oil (also produced on-site). It was a fantastic experience and quite inexpensive. This area of the Veneto is well-located as a base for day trips. Cars are pretty much a necessity to fully experience this beautiful part of Italy. Of course, Verona is the nearest city of interest, but Padua and Venice are a short train ride (or drive) from Verona. Lake Garda (Sirmione, Bardolino, etc.) is also very close. As mentioned, we were also close enough to drive up to the Dolomites. In summary, we highly recommend Villa Sogara for a larger group who wants a beautiful, quiet setting that offers all the amenities (including WiFi!) and is convenient for exploring all this region has to offer.

                                                We have been too long in sending our unqualified, wholeharted recommendation for Villa Sogara to everyone who is thinking of a trip to Italy! The reason for the delay was simple. We felt we would be unable to adequately describe our delightfull stay there. We supposed that upon reflection we could better do justice to Sogara,Tommaso and Ela. As time has passed and we have relived our time there through photos and conversations, we still feel inadequate but here goes! Collectively our party has traveled all over the globe. We have rented in St Andrews, Scotland and Tuscany. We love to travel. Though we had high expectations we were totally blown away by the "Sogara Experience". The listing was accurate in every way, but we still had not imagined the wonder of the full experience. It was a dream vacation that included owners who were available to us for information, advice, tours, translation, meals, delightful conversation, and enlightening stories of Villa Sogara as it developed through the ages. Not the least of these fascinating stories were the personal histories of the four generations of the remarkable family who has loved and protected it through such profoundly historic times and who now work tirelessly to share it with the lucky travelers who find their way to Villa Sogara. The photographs of the two welcoming columns on the first floor front portico are beautiful but you must go there to get the full effect and to see these true relics from Roman times. They and the half column and broken bust dug up from the vineyards stand reflecting an age we have studied and viewed via museums. Somehow their presence and that of other antique furnishings in this home impart a new feeling of respect for the past. The same is true of the family's personal possessions that came from the former family palace in Verona. There are comfy sitting rooms too! How lucky is the traveler who accepts the invitation of the gracious owner who makes it available. Renting a car in Venice or Verona is simple. We were able to have many day trips to very special small towns. With Tommaso's help, arrangements to the train station in Verona for an early morning jouney to Milan made everyting so much more convenient. This is but one example of the extra things that were done for us. We loved our trips to the wineries. We loved our neighbors there. We were welcomed to the Lake Country by so many friendly faces. Go there soon!

                                                We had 10 people in Villa Sogara for a week. It was so delightful and relaxing by the pool overlooking the vineyards that we almost didn't want to sightsee! Tomasso and Ela were the most gracious hosts, even arranging for a visit to the neighboring family-owned winery. They are happy and willing to share their knowledge of the area. Ela is an amazing chef, and a special dinner prepared by her for your guests is a must! Everything is easily accessible by bus, train or car - Verona, Vicenza, Lake Garda, wineries, and of course Venice. This are cost-competitive accommodations in a perfect setting.

                                                Villa Sogara is full of charm and character. You can immediately feel it was a happy, lived-in house belonging to a family who loved the villa and loved each other. You are in the country with interesting views over vineyards and hills. There is bird song, peace and quiet the whole time. One morning we could spot a pheasant in our garden. Wonderful! However, within a few minutes’ drive you can be in the city of Verona with all its cultural, sightseeing and shopping offerings. There is a large Shopping center halfway to Verona which is very convenient for last minute shopping, just a break or a stroll in the many shops. We found it very useful, both for shopping and as a landmark - impossible to get lost. There are many interesting, genuine and reasonably priced small restaurants and pizzerias around - the ones that ordinary tourists never know about - so, ask Tommaso and Ela for suggestions. Pizzeria Lui e Lei took our order by phone on the way home and all we had to do was collect the pizzas. The Villa: You will find the best of ancient and most modern, from a charming, fantastic countryhouse kitchen, to a lift (which we only used twice, to get the luggage inside and outside. The stairs are so easy to climb), to internet access. The bathrooms are all well equipped and modern and the water is always hot when you need it. The furniture is lovely and unique and there is a good supply of high quality hangers (wood). The cleaning is efficient and nonintrusive. We toured Verona, Vicenza, Lake Garda, Sirmione, Maranello (try the Ferrari test drive if you get a chance - thrilling!), Modena, Padova and Venice in the 8 days we stayed. We found the Villa ideally situated to do this – in the countryside but boasting fantastic road access to everywhere you want to go. Our hosts – whom we did not know at all previously – welcomed us to their Villa as old friends would. This made all the difference – we felt that they would be there for us should anything happen or should we need help for whatever reason. Both Tommaso and Ela speak perfect English. We never felt intruded on our privacy. Bill the dog, was a great hit with the children. He lives by the main gate providing guarding services but kept away from the Villa and guests. Our Party: 5 adults and 6 children aging between 2 and 11. We had a great time and strongly recommend this Villa to parties who desire to tour the wonderful cities around Verona coming back to wonderful accommodation.

                                                Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway.
