In northern Italy, between Verona and Lake Garda, Villa Quaranta Wine Hotel and Spa is a palatial estate where 17th-century grandeur meets country charm. The pastel yellow villa (complete with a traditional terra-cotta roof) features a restaurant and wine cellar and there’s also an on-site destination spa. Original features include huge arched windows and ornate and colorful wall frescos. The guestrooms are traditionally styled, with elegant off-white furnishings and opulent headboards (the Double Deluxe and Triple rooms are simpler in design). The extensive Terme della Valpolicella Spa has several pools, including a whirlpool and an aromatherapy bath, a Finnish sauna, a cold cave and a Turkish hammam; if you’re feeling decadent, splurge on a luxury wine and olive oil massage. There’s also an outdoor pool with a relaxation area for the summer months. Foodies are catered to at the Borgo Antico restaurant, which serves northern Italian specialties including fresh pasta and charcuterie platters. Alternatively, book a food and wine tasting at Bottega del Gusto, where you’ll sample regional produce and wines from the on-site cellar.
In the Area
Eight miles north of the villa is Lake Garda, where quaint traditional houses and elegant mansions line the shores. Rent a boat and pack a picnic, for a classic Italian daytrip. Verona is a 20-minute drive away. Wander the medieval streets, explore the Verona Arena, a Roman amphitheater, or visit Juliet’s House, said to have inspired the classic balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet. Closer to home, the hills and mountains of the surrounding Valpolicella wine area are easily explored from the villa on foot or on two wheels.
How to Get There
A very nice architecture and feeling of luxury space. Enrico(GM) runs the ship very efficiently and is around all the time to oversee and assist. Davide & his team are excellent in their service standards, Barbara and her team at front office are ready to help with anything, anytime. A very satisfying and a comfortable stay. Congratulations to all Villa Quaranta team.
Excellent stay. Friendly and helpful staff. Great spa facilities. Sumptuous breakfast. Couldn't be more satisfied with our stay.
One thing that could be improved is perhaps the parking lot. It is way too tiny !
The location is out of Verona, but 15 minutes far away. The place is wonderful, a great garden and a great swimming pool. The spa and the gymnasium are also great. Thee breakfast and lunch were ok and the rooms were very big.
