The house has been recently converted to a high standard and is well equipped. There were up to five of us staying at different times without any sense of squash particularly since each bedroom has en suite facilities. The outside seating area is very pleasant. There are views from it of vineyards and of the Colli Eugenei at the foot of which the house nestles. There is quite a busy road nearby.
The house in wonderfully located for trips into the beautiful Colli Eugenei themselves (wine buying at Ca' Lustra and watching a marvellous sunset while sipping drinks and eating a meat platter at Da Teresa on Cengolina hill), or to local places such as Monselice, Este and Montagnana, all with much of interest to see, or further afield to the glories of Padua, Vicenza, Mantua and the villas of Palladio which are dotted around the area. Distances are relatively short and travel easy.
All in all we had a tremendous time.
We were greeted by Nicola who spoke very good English, he introduced us to his property in a very friendly and informative way. A beautiful clean and well presented house, decorated tastefully throughout by Nicola’s friendly wife who we had the pleasure of meeting on a couple of occasions.
Being beside a canal in the quaint village of Pontemanco we were able to watch and feed the fish and listen to the water wheel by Cafe Zhivago.
Nicola gave us a bountiful amount of clear information regarding a good supermarket, restaurants, transport etc. and was available if any assistance was required.
We hired the full house for twelve days from where we visited Bologna, Sirmione, Verona, Padua, Ferrara and Chioggia by car which were all within a 90 minuets drive. We even took a train to Milan from Padua, using the park and tram to Padua recommended by Nicola.
Nicola kindly provided tinned tomatoes, herbs, spaghetti, breakfast cereal, coffee, tea, milk, fruit juice, bottled water and a bottle of wine on arrival. He also provided washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and washing machine liquid.
We used the village bakery for fresh breads and we were even able to purchase milk, butter and fruit juice when we ran short.
We would love to return to this property.
