“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

We can't speak highly enough of Residenza La Villa. Anna, the owner, puts so much TLC into her establishment. Our room was very comfortable and well appointed and, most importantly, spotless. Anna's breakfasts are memorable - her cakes are stupendous; don't expect to keep to a diet here! Anna is very welcoming and happy to share her tips on where to eat, what to see, etc. Residenza is a few kilometres out of Mantova town centre, but with a car it is no problem. In fact, it is a great base for many day trips around the area, including Lake Garda, Verona. Highly recommended!

Comfortable, quiet, clean, it is definitively a very good place to stay. The owner is a incredible welcome person. This is a small hotel with a wonderful breakfast. Location is very appropriate and close to the main historical places to visit Mantova.

Gorgeous room and a fantastic host in Madam Ana, the breakfast is great for those with a sweet tooth as Ana bakes cakes every day. This is a great spot to visit Mantua (five min drive) and Verona (30min drive). The standard of cleaning and room service is great too.

We visited Mantova in September towards the end of our 5 week holiday in Italy and found La Villa lived up to its reputation. It is stylish and modern, handy to Mantova city and hosted by Anna who is warm and friendly. We were a little worried when we arrived shortly before 1400 to find the electric gate closed and the garden/carpark area of the villa looking quite unloved complete with an old broken-down car. We finally worked out which button on the intercom to push and Anna let us in. Maybe the gardener was sick but it wasn't a good first impression. As soon as we entered our room all of that was forgotten! As already mentioned, the breakfasts with a good choice of sweet and savoury goodies home-made by Anna were the best in Italy. It was also nice to have a kettle in our room. Mantova is the perfect choice if you want to experience the beauty and style of Italy without crowds of tourists.

Our stay with Anna was wonderful, from start to finish. The previous reviews say it all - large room, comfortable bed, modern shower room, easy access to Mantova and free parking, great breakfasts, secure parking at the Villa. I particularly enjoyed Anna's sense of style, the villa has been renovated while retaining the original character, and Anna's great flair with interior design shows contemporary Italian style at its best.
Mantova is a Renaissance gem, easy to walk around, and we had some delicious restaurant meals, enjoying the local specialities.
We will definitely be staying with Anna again.

Room Tip: The villa is set well back from the road and the windows are double glazed, but if you are an extrem...

With all the fantastic reviews that La Villa has received, any more superlatives might seem superfluous. But it's true. An intimate B&B (only 7 rooms) a mere 5 minute's drive from Mantua. Our large, well equipped standard room exuded an inviting and sophisticated modern elegance. While rolls, cheese and several savoury dishes were on offer, the ample breakfast focused (as Italian accommodations tend to do) on bakery products, all the handiwork of the attentive and helpful hostess, Anna. If anything, my only complaint would be the potentially devasting effect on the more than adequate girth of this reviewer had we stayed longer than the two charming days we had at our disposal.

Location – 3 km from Montova, but no problem with that since the arrival there is very quick and there is free parking around the city walls.
The room – We stayed in the Junior suite. Very big, high ceiling, nicely designed, quiet and with a nice green view. There are electricity spots right next to the bed which is nice.
Sleep quality – medium-low. For us the mattress and the pillows were too hard.
Building – renovated old building with character. No elevator.
Level of cleanliness – very good.
Shower and toilet – very good.
Hosting – the owner was very nice, also giving us a map of Mantua plus some tips.
Breakfast – good normal continental without a hot dish.
Arriving with a car – plenty of parking spots next to the building.
To summarize – we recommend the place. We gave it 4 points and not 5 due to the sleep quality that wasn’t good enough in our opinion.
