We just spent a week at Cascina Boschi and what a find! It is an agriturismo, but it is at the high end of the scale. The place is either very new or very well kept. We stayed in one of the apartments, which was great. It allowed us to shop in the lovely local town and cook for ourselves when we wanted. The breakfasts were very ample and part of the package. Dinners and lunches were heavenly...just about everything is made on premises, including pasta, salami, ham, eggs, bread, all excellent. One of the pastas were simple pillows that melted in your mouth!
The pool is beautiful. There are many bikes to use to ride along the Mincio River paths. The horse riding is first rate with a professional rider and dressage competitor as a guide and also to give lessons. When I got bucked off one horse (probably my fault!) I got to ride Graciella's stallion and had the ride of my life. What a horse!
The staff is excellent and friendly. This is obviously a place where the locals go for a party, swim, meal, etc. Afternoons and evenings on the weekend get busy, but it's much fun to see all the people.
The apartment was very nice, had air conditioning and was very private. I would like to see a few more basic kitchen utensils such as cooking knives, cutting board and a few more pots and pans to make cooking easier. But, we did have a great time cooking the local fare and relish in its bounty.
We would definitely recommend it and return if in that area.
