Villa Mila is quite simply a fantastic place to stay. It is only 45 km from Verona and is easily accessible by train and road with easy transfers from the airport. It is situated in the small town of Villa Bartolomea which has basic but useful facilities such as a bakers shop, restaurants, coffee shops , a bar etc. It is located on the banks of the river Adige and there are fabulous paths stretching for miles for walking and cycling to nearby towns and villages.
We rented Villa Mila in December for 25 people to stay for one week as we were renewing our wedding vows for our 20th anniversary.
The bedrooms are all charming and have beautiful period features and furniture and the most comfortable beds.
We were originally worried that having 25 people all in one house would feel claustrophobic but we were happy to be proved wrong. There is so much space and so many rooms that people could comfortably didvide themselves up depending on the activity. The teenagers tended to gravitate around the billiard room or dining room for playing music or card/board games whilst the oldies got comfortable (with wine and snacks of course) in the kitchen or beautiful living room, both serviced by open log fires.
Mirella is the amazing lady that arranges everything. She runs the house along with her team of helpers and is invaluable.
We hired the old castle across the road as the venue to renew our vows and Mirella assisted us with almost every detail
She arranged the celebrant, the caterers and helped with all the arrangements for the day. She offered us assistance with everything from music to flowers (most of the greenery in the flower arrangements were picked from the grounds of Villa Mila which made a lovely touch) and was always available should we have any questions or help.
I cannot recommend this Villa highly enough if you are looking for somewhere to host a celebration or party. To get the level of service and detail available you would usually have to pay a fortune for a wedding or party planner.
In short, we had a truly amazing time. Every single one of our guests has vowed to return and we are already trying to arrange a suitable time to return. In the summer there is the full use of the amazing outdoor barbeque area, grounds and pool which unfortunately we could not use in December but we hope to return in warmer times to fully make use of the facilities.
Villa Mila, a truly unique location. If you are lucky enough to visit, you won't ever want to leave!
