What better place in the world to have a "taste" of history, to enjoy superb architecture, to eat fresh and amazing food ... and why not to shop then Italy.
Right after a long, cold and tiring 2012 winter, when the smell of spring was in the air I wanted to surprise my wife, so I planned a trip to Verona. Needless to say that Villa Beatrice was the first choice, so I wrote a quick email asking about the availability. After a couple of hours, we recived a very friendly email (written in our language) confirming that we are more then welcomed to stay during the time period that we indicated.
Without planning, it just happened that we got a "full Italian" experience, meaning we flew with AlItalia and at the airport the car renting company gave us a nice Fiat 500 for our stay in Verona. We had a late flight but Simone was kind enough to accept checking us in at 23:00.
The ride from the airport to Villa Beatrice was spectacular, going from the airport to Verona, driving with Adige river, people leaving from restaurants, traffic slowing down and after that going up the hills through peaceful small roadways, passing by old houses (villas) and after each minute the city center of Verona become a spectacular display of lights.
At precise 23:00 hours we arrived at Villa Beatrice and I timidly rang the bell. Simone welcomed and helped us to accomodate, he showed us the rooms and explained us how things work around the villa. After that, like old friends, me, my wife, Simone and Agelica started story telling and enjoying a very good glass of wine... so good that at 1:00 am we were still reeling. This is exactly the reason we love to discover such small accomodations... there is no 4 or 5 star hotel chain in the world that can offer such a true and intimate relationship.
Simone makes the morning breakfast a real show, by serving such healthy and tastefull food : home made olive oil, home made yogurt, real italian cappucino, freshly squeezed mix of fruite juice, home baked cakes and many others.
Enjoying the beautifull garden, overlooking the old city of Verona is such a relaxing experience that can make you "not wanting" to leave to premises .... and the playful and loving Zeus will do everything to make you feel home.
Simone impressed us with his pasion and knowledge about his city, not to mention that his tips on restaurants made us taste some amazing and authentic dishes.
Angelica and Simone were kind enough to give us a bottle of their delicious olive oil.... It was so hard to leave Villa Beatrice we almost missed the flight.
Thank you for a wonderful stay Simone and thank you Angelica for making us fell like home. We will come back soon ...
