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
Tommasi Family has developed a world class resort in the heart of Valpolicella. Hotel/Spa with outstanding workout equipment and all the necessary elements demanded by today's spa clientele. Italy's best wines and cuisine are readily available in all facilities.
Beautiful surroundings and very pleasant decoration of the hotel. Also lot of parking space. The rooms are great, spacious, clean and well equipped. What would be nice is a water heater and some tea. But there's complimentary water in the mini bar, which is great. Breakfast is very tasty, with freshly squeezed fruit juice and great coffee. Staff is kind, especially in spa center where we had a short tour and presentation of services. Dinner in restaurant Borgo Antico was really nice, food and wine delicious and the waiter was great. We had some nice excursions in the vicinity of the hotel, so I find it's location to be just perfect - close to a lot of 'must see' places and still in peaceful and pleasant sorrounding.
Perfectly located in the wine region of the Valpolicella, the Villa Quaranta offers a perfect blend of a relaxed hotel with a luxury feel.The staff is very helpful and friendly. The hotel restaurant also offers fine local italian cuisine and has a great selection of wines.
All round excellent service, lovely surroundings and very pleasing and helpful staff. Meals beautifully presented and good wines. Swimming pool very pleasant temperature. Pleasant garden and surroundings although on a busy road.
I traveled with my wife and children and we had a fabulous time. Swimming pools were excellent and decorated amazing. Great location for getting to Gardaland and Movieland. Would recommend for families with children
