About Lodovico

Why Lodovico chose San Pietro in Cariano

HISTORY OF THE Villa Conte di San Bonifacio:

Planned and built in the 15th Century by Architect Andrea Palladio and originally named Villa Acquistapace, or the Villa's illustrious former owners include the Floriani family, who left their testament on a beautiful acquaforte dated 1744, that depicts the Villa with the description 'view of the Floriani brothers' Palace in S.Pietro in Cariano in Valpolicella'. On the death of Pietro Floriani Sbatacchia in 1871, the Villa was inherited by Francesco Ferrari and remained in the Ferrari family throughout the 19th Century. Today the Villa is known as La Serenella and has its main entrance in S.Guiseppe Square.Today the property owners are the Aristocratic Family of Conti di San Bonifacio.


The access to the villa is through the main entrance with a magnificent gate, that resembles those in The Arche Scaligere in Verona; on the left you can spot the little villetta of the guardian in liberty style, and on the right the Chapel entitled to S.Giuseppe, the shovel on the altar inside the chapel represents a sacred family with S.Francesco d'Assisi. The beautiful internal sealing was all painted, probably in the 17th century, with four scenes of angelic concerts. You get to the palace walking through an amazing pathway surrounded by ancient trees like Italian traditional garden, signed by many classic statues.

What makes this villa unique

LA VILLA is amusing Palladian Villa located, from the 16 Cent. Whit all the modern comforting the Heart of Valpolicella.

This was the perfect home for a weekend family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully restored 16th century villa offered us the perfect hub for a long weekend in the Valpolicella area. Ideally located to explore Verona, lake Garda, the mountains and the vineyards. More importantly a house and garden to dream of with plenty of space for a large family, extraordinary bed rooms with private bath rooms, as well as large and long tables inside and outside in support of home cooking, pasta making and Italian family style dining with lots of pasta, prosciutto, cheese, fresh bread, and obviously local wines. our entire family gave this place a big thumbs up. Great and very helpful hosts as well. Many thanks to Ludovico and also to Joyce and her family.

Perfect 10 Days in San Pietro in Cariano

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our 10 day stay at Villa San Bonifacio in Serenella. It is a large space with generous bedroom suites, updated bathrooms, and a wonderful garden space, inside the envelope of an historic estate. Our family enjoyed day trips into Verona, Lake Garda, and to the waterfalls of Molina. We visited the Brunelli Winery nearby, walked to restaurants in the neighborhood, and visited the church up the street. We couldn't have been happier! We hope to return!

Fantastische Erholung

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschönes, großes, altes Haus mit liebevoll restaurierten Zimmern und jede Menge Platz im hauseigenen, sehr gepflegten Park und eigenem Pool. Dazu ein unglaublich aufmerksamer Besitzer, der alles versucht, seinen Gästen den Aufenthalt besonders angenehm zu gestalten. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig, aber dennoch nicht weit abseits des Ortszentrums in dem man alle Dinge des täglichen Bedarfs kaufen und Essen gehen kann. Direkt Vis a vis zum Grundstückseingang ist außerdem ein Tante-Emma-Laden, in dem man sich noch mit Kleinigkeiten versorgen kann. Außerdem bot uns der Besitzer die Möglichkeit einen Koch eigens ins Haus kommen zu lassen, der ein wunderbar schmeckendes Dinner kreierte und das zu einem absolut annehmbaren Preis. Alle Gäste waren vom Aufenthalt begeistert. Definitiv eine Empfehlung.

One more time, thanks a lot to Ludovico. We enjoyed the staying very much.

An Entirely Fabulous Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at La Serenella is like going back in time, in the best possible sense. The villa is gorgeous, and the gatehouse, while the rooms are a bit more modern, is very beautiful as well. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. We asked to have a local chef come and prepare dinner for us one night in order to take advantage of the beautiful formal dining room, and the person that was recommended to us provided a fantastic meal for a very reasonable price. Our host was enormously gracious. The town is charming, and the accessibility to both relaxing days at the lake and touring nearby towns and cities was wonderful. I couldn't possibly recommend a stay at La Serenella more highly.

beautifull time in the villa

  • 5 of 5

we arrived to the villa in the evening (14 people) after a long and tiring journey and lodovico that greeted us pleasantly helped us getting arranged with food in the supermarket and even helped us order pizza.. the house and the rooms were so well charactered and exciting. the garden beautiful and calm. lodovico was kind and helpful all through our 1 week stay and even our children still remember and miss him..

the surroundings of the villa were just perfect, jogging between the wine fields in the mornings and drinking the local wine in the evenings. the kitchen is well equipped and there is a washing machine we could use. the sanitary needed a little bit of repair in one of the bathrooms but other than that it was a perfect vacation.
