I'd planned a trip to Verona with my parents, and at the last minute had decided to try to fufill my mother's wish to visit an organic farm. Since I'd already booked our accomodation in Verona, I'd contacted Carlo to arrange for lunch at his farm. Carlo's wife, Michela, cooked us a most delicious lunch accompanied by their own organic wine. Even though the lunch was simple, my parents and I agreed that it is one of the best Italian food we've ever eaten. Before lunch, Carlo gave us a brief tour of his lovely home and guest accomodation facilities. After lunch, we were taken on a short tour of his farm, which has ducks, turkeys, chickens, geese, many cats, two dogs, lots of different types and varieties of fruit trees (apples, pears, figs, strawberries, plums, pomogranate) and vegetables, and a vineyard. Before we left, we bought several bottles of Carlo's own organic wine and some organic fruits to take home with us. The trip to the farm was definately the highlight of our trip - if you are a foodie, with an interest in organic vegetable farming/wine, and would like to see how a family has achieved self-sufficiency, then there is no better place to visit/stay than this farm!

We were met by our host Carlo who showed us around, saying, "This is a real place," meaning that it's a true working farm. They raise organic fruits, vegetables and grapes, and make both white and red wine plus grappa. Our room was one of three plus a small suite built into the voluminous former hay loft. It overlooks a large barn-like work space/storage/processing area with stacks of cherries in crates, fresh zucchini blossoms, bottles ready for canning fruit and juice, and miscellaneous farm equipment.

Our room was nicely furnished, with a spacious modern bathroom and an upper level with more beds, a couch and TV. No WiFi here when we stayed, but there is a computer guests can use. The main house dates from 1455 and has a huge ancient fireplace in the kitchen and another in the spacious dining room (seats 30).

Carlo’s wife, Michela, is an inventive and talented chef, and her breads are delicious at breakfast with the farm’s jam. Multi-course dinners are also sometimes offered featuring farm-fresh vegetables, homemade pasta, specialty dishes of the Veneto region and creative and delicious desserts, accompanied by their award-winning Entusiasmo organic wines (€60-80/couple). Michela can also give cooking classes.

We found Palazzetto Ardi to be a good home base for visiting Vicenza and Verona as well as nearby Palladian villas and walled cities like Montagnana and Soave. We were charmed by the place and even more by our hard-working hosts.

We spent two wonderful weeks at the Palazzetto Ardi. Our goal was to see as many Palladian Villas as possible. We could not have found a more lovely place to stay, or more helpful hosts. There are B&B rooms available, and we had a lovely apartment complete with gourmet kitchen appliances.
Just an example of Carlo and Michela's helpfullness--We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon when the local grocery was closed. Carlo insisted we have dinner with them, and said he would go to the grocery early Thursday and leave us the makings for breakfast outside our door. Sure enough, by 7:30 am a basket appeared with Coffee, milk, Orange Juice, fresh eggs, Carlo's homemade bread and wonderful local honey.
Michela's supper was to die for rissoto with artichokes, a platter of Carlo's homemade sausage and wonderful local cheeses, all with Carlo's red or white wine.
This agritourismo is a wonderful organic farm, with orchard, vineyard, huge vegetable garden, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and four pigs ( to make sausage). We had fresh eggs and were invited to pick from the vegetable garden.
We were invited to dinner many evenings and on our last night there to a winetasting that featured local wines paired with Michela's food.
Carlo was invaluable in helping us to gain access to the Villas, but if we had not had this agenda, we would have had plenty to do. Carlo was a fountain of information, always suggesting local activities for us. He would draw us maps, and even lead us to places in his car.
This was by far the best travel experience we have had. We would return to the area just to stay with Carlo and Michela again.
