The current configuration was defined by an important project in 1734, when it became property of the family. This project was one of the very first examples of an architecture that found immense success in the Veronese territory during the following years. The whole property has been totally restored in 2007. This unique property consists of two main parts, the villa of the owner with its magnificent main court ( not available for rent ) and the old rural courtyard that has been converted into a splendid Relais composed of 15 large and beautiful accommodations featuring many facilities. Our rental, La Colombella, is located just outside the old courtyard and it has its own independent entrance.
