Mario has lived in Verona and the Valpolicella area of Italy all his life, while Anne moved to Italy from Oxford and has lived in Negrar for the last 20 years. Mario loves photography and walking in the vineyards and olive groves behind our house, or further afield in the Verona hills, Monte Baldo and the Dolomite mountains. He is an expert guide to the footpaths in the area and is always happy to share his knowledge with our guests. Anne loves swimming in Lake Garda and also in the thermal baths at Aquardens and local swimming pools. We also enjoy the opera at the Arena in Verona in the summer, evenings out for dinner by Lake Garda , or in the Lessinia hills. Whenever we can we love to take the train to Venice, where Anne worked for 10 years teaching English at Ca' Foscari University. We also enjoy accompanying our guests on wine tasting excursions to some of the wineries in our area. Mario prefers Valpolicella Classico, Amarone and Recioto from our area, while Anne prefers the white wines from the south part of Lake Garda, Lugana and Custoza.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 1995
Why Owner chose Negrar
Our apartment was Mario's family home until we moved round the corner where we run Parry Bed and Breakfast. We love the peace and quiet of the area which is extremely convenient - 10 minutes walk to the centre of Negrar with its bars and restaurants and just 2 minutes to the nearest supermarket, but also 2 minutes from the vineyards and the start of some beautiful walks up to the cross on the hill above Negrar.
What makes this Apartment unique
Mario is a wonderful guide to the area and is always willing to share his local knowledge and maps with our guests. This is a wonderful area with very few tourists, the Valpolicella hills are among the most beautiful in Italy.
