Wonderful Property and Terrific Owner
Our stay in Villa Emma was exceptional. The villa and grounds are beautiful, and the house is very comfortable. It was equipped with everything we needed and the location is convenient to Verona and the surrounding area. We only have superlatives to say about our experience in Villa Emma.
Troppo simpatiche e troppo "insolite" per l'esperienza nostra italiana, ospitare queste 5 signore americane, abituate come si e' visto, a viaggiare.
Eccezionali, autonome, indipendenti.....è stato fantastico averle come ospiti.
Better than expected
Having driven from Belfast via Silverstone,we were delighted when we first arrived to find the house surrounded by vineyards (working)and the owners present to great us.
Emma and her daughter Anna were very helpful and after showing us the usual workings of the house and surrounding garden,pool and pool house etc,proceeded to give us some advice on local sites to visit including restaurants grocery stores etc.
We felt very much at home as there were only a few discreetly place notes here and there instead of the usual "don't do this" "don't do that" signs that a lot of rental homes tend to have stuck everywhere.
Great location for travelling from either Verona airport or Bergamo airport and 10 miles from the Autostrada.
The swimming pool was fantastic as were the surrounding views,I really didn't want to leave.
I will be back !!!
Paul e la sua famiglia sono stati ospiti molto molto cordiali. Famiglia simpatica, rispettosi delle regole della casa e ottimi ospiti, consiglio a chiunque di averli come ospiti.
E' stato un grande piacere fare la loro conoscenza e mi auguro vederli ancora presso la mia villa emma
The photos and location were the reason we picked Villa Emma. The reality is even better
Emma and her daughter Anna met us and showed us everything we needed to know - perfect hosts with excellent communication during our stay. Recommending restaurants places to visit etc. We made full use of the pool - from early morning until it was dark. The villa is very well equipped and more spacious than we expected. The pool house is great, complete with indoor & outdoor showers, toilet and full kitchen facilities. It is only a short walk through the well maintained garden to the house - but it would be possible to stay by the pool all day.
We visited lake Garda, Venice (train from Verona took 1 hour 10 minutes) and spent a day in Verona.
Eating out was a pleasure everywhere including the recommended pizza restaurant in San Pietro. Ice cream has to be tried and the varieties available are staggering. Everyone we came across is friendly and helpful - even though we literally did not know a word of Italian - but will try harder for next time!
Weather was great apart from rain on our last day - and the 15 minute hail storm whilst eating in Verona was interesting.
Great location for seeing the many sights and the hospitality and helpfulness of both Anna & Emma made it all the more special.
Cannot recommend highly enough - we will e back.
Thanks Emma & Anna for our great holiday in your beautiful Villa
Gary, Rebecca, Isobel & Millie Edwards
Gary e la sua famiglia erano già arrivati entusiati, ma la loro permanenza nella mia villa, li ha ancora di più meravigliati.
Credo siano rimasti contentissimi e me lo hanno anche espresso.
Io ho avuto una buonissima esperienza, ospiti affidabili, attenti alle regole della casa, simpatici, e sono felice che tornino nella mia villa anche l'anno prossimo.
Spero per allora di avere imparato meglio la lingua inglese, per poter con loro condividere anche qualche cena insieme.
A wonderful and relaxing holiday in a beautiful villa with fantastic hosts. We hope to return!
villa Emma is beautifully appointed and the pool is great - a decent size for swimming and the pool house is very handy for an extra fridge, bathroom and eating area. Emma and her daughter Anna were wonderful hosts - very friendly and helpful with queries during our stay - thank you both! Lots to do in the area - lake Garda, Verona, Mantua, Monte Baldo and even Movieland (lots better than we expected). Plenty more that we did not find time for as we enjoyed just lazing around the pool and swimming. Scamperle Alla Rosa in Fumane provided an excellent last night meal out. We would recommend villa Emma for families and/or couples/friends. It was pretty hot trying to sleep at night (we come from chilly England!) but we found that closing the shutters and then opening the windows at night helped somewhat with the bedroom temperature.
Ospiti cordiali e famiglia proprio simpatica. Sono felice di avervi avuto come ospiti e soddisfatta vi sia piaciuto così tanto il vostro soggiorno.
So che è stata un'estate piuttosto calda (certo in Inghilterra si sta meglio), ma mi riprometto per il prossimo anno di aver installato un impianto di aria condizionata.
Augurandomi del vostro ritorno.
Vi saluto cordialmente
A slice of heaven nestled between vineyards
We have stayed in many holiday rentals but this is by far the best!
The house is beautifully furnished in a country house, antique style and very comfortable with everything we could have possibly needed; dishwasher, washing machine, a well equipped kitchen, three bathrooms, three good sized bedrooms. We were very impressed by the provision of basics such as handwash, washing up liquid, toiletbpaper, olive oil, vinegar etc.
The pool is amazing. It is enormous and surrounded by a large paved area with plenty of sun loungers, chairs, a table and a big sun umbrella. There is a pool house with a kitchen and a fridge for daytime snacks and drinks, plus a toilet and an outdoor shower . There is also a covered eating area where we set up the ping pong table and whiled away hours eating, drinking, playing ping pong in between swimming and sunbathing.
The garden is beautiful; a huge expanse of perfectly manicured lawn, spotted with olive trees and surrounded by flowers and trees. There is ample seating on both verandas to the front and back of the house where we also spent countless hours reading and relaxing.
Although we could have easily spent the entire week only at villa Emma, Verona is also very close by and a beautiful city full of history and culture, world class opera and great shopping.
Emma, the owner and her daughter, Anna were charming, welcoming, helpful and hospitable.They could not do enough to make sure our stay was perfect and also gave excellent advice on local restaurants. They made us feel we were their esteemed guests not just renting their house.
Everything was of the highest quality, everything worked, everything was aesthetically beautiful - we cannot wait to return. Next time for much longer. Thank you Emma and Anna!
Grazie a te Amy.
E' stata una bellissima esperienza conoscere te e la tua bella famiglia.
Siete degli ospiti "perfetti", era come se la casa fosse vostra, da tanto che avete rispettato le regole e tutto il resto..... hai perfino dato da bere alle mie piante, sollevando me da questo lavoro.
Spero tanto di rivedervi anche l'anno prossimo.
Mi farebbe tanto tanto piacere.
Un caro saluto anche da Anna.
La grande piscine vaut le detour !***
Que de soins apportés par Emma à sa jolie villa et à l'accueil de ses hôtes !
La décoration est étudiée dans les moindres détails , le jardin est superbement entretenu et le coin piscine est tout simplement exceptionnel. En journée, on peut vivre quasi exclusivement dans le swimming pool parfaitement aménagé : grand patio ombragé, cuisine complète (avec grand frigo, four et lave -vaisselle!), salle de bain et WC.
Emma sait recevoir ses hôtes et met tout en oeuvre pour les acceuillir dans les meilleures conditions. Nous n'avons pas du nous précipiter au magasin dès notre arrivée. Emma avait tout prévu !
La seule chose qui manquait pendant cette semaine caniculaire (37 ° le jour de notre arrivée), était d'avoir des petits ventilateurs dans les chambres à coucher (vu que la villa ne dispose pas d'airco). Mais, en veillant à bien fermer les portes en journée et à bien aérer une fois la nuit tombée, nous avons réussi à garder une température agréable de 26-27 ° dans les chambres à coucher.
En bref, notre sejour fut parfait et nous recommandons chaleureusement cette villa à toute personne qui souhaite se reposer et découvrir la région du lac de Garde et de Vérone.
L'esperienza di ospitare Vinciane e la sua numerosa famiglia è stata positiva ed entusiasmante.
Bella famiglia, 4 figlioli con tanta voglia di giocare e di tuffarsi in piscina.
Sono stati ospiti perfetti, con un grande rispetto delle regole e del comportamento da tenere dentro la proprietà.
Sono rimasta contenta dell'esperienza fatta e spero poter ospitare ancora la famiglia di Vinciane.
Per quanto riguarda il "piccolo"problema di un ventilatore nelle camere, provvederò al più presto a installarlo.
Grazie Vinciane e....arrivederci
