With views out over the vineyards, this villa’s proximity to some of Italy’s freshest produce and farmland makes it an ideal spot for any foodies and wine lovers. The unique climate of Valpolicella provides the perfect foundations for local wines and with grapes for neighbours here, you are the first in line for a glass. Once a farmhouse, now decked out with a semi-professional kitchen, this home is the perfect place to test your culinary skills – or even hire a private chef if that’s more your style. Delicacies such as Monte Veronese cheese, ricotta, truffles, extra virgin olive oil, and Lessinia cured meats will make the most luxurious spread to lay out across the grand dining table that centres a formal entertainment space. With your hosts happy to welcome large events and gatherings, even providing a sample of local wines to taste, the social opportunities are endless. Bedrooms can be divided into twins or made up into doubles, suiting the needs of your group, whatever the size. Beside the inviting pool, a furnished portico with tables, chairs, and an impressive barbecue offer up an alfresco alternative to dinner indoors and allows you to graze as the sun sets over the hills. Venturing beyond your patch of wilderness, the more adventurous guests can explore hiking and cycle paths, visit local tennis courts and stables, even shop around the infamous, Shakespearean city of Verona to sight Juliet’s balcony. Romance is certainly not dead here on the hills of Negrar.
