Notes:
Spread over three floors, these spacious teak wood villas offer the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living. The villa is an ideal place for sharing families and couples who desire a relaxing break but without the stress of feeling away from home. What surprises the visitor is at first the care given to the furnishing of the villa: in the living and dining rooms, the bedrooms, the bathrooms, each object, contributes to determine the style of the house. Antic furniture, paintings, mirrors give an undeniable charm to the house. In addition the terracotta and wooden floors and the beams on the ceiling. The double living room is with no doubt the most characteristic room of the house in which the fireplace is the central point. Another chimney is also located in the dining room next to the kitchen which is spacious, modern and practical. The rooms in the ground floor all open on a charming terrace, very private with many shady corners for relaxation and a private access to the pool.

Fantastic location, spacious and friendly and helpful owners

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the property. It’s in a beautiful location, very close to Verona but at the same time feels quiet and rural. The property is spacious and comfortable. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome and help. We had some hot water issues during our stay and they assisted and rectified promptly. The only improvements required are to the bathrooms, with the power of the showers needing to be improved.

Owner's Response: Dear Mark Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately the water pressure changes frequently. This doesn’t depend on us but on the public service. We called the plumber many times for this. We hope to have you as guests again so you will be able to have many more cycling tours in our hills! Filiberto

Our stay in Villa Avesa

  • 5 of 5

We really loved Villa Avesa. I booked the villa last october for my mother's birthday. We were a big family of 7 adults and some children.

The villa was everything we dreamed. Very beautifully decorated, but also yet very functional even with small children. The location is excellent, walking distance to the village of Avesa, as well as close to Verona centre.

The view is wondeful. Armelle and Filiberto were very attentive and gave us very good suggestions. Every day we enjoyed something different in the region, but we had also good time to enjoy the property of the villa and walking in the hills in the nearby. Verona area is very interesting, with enough to see and do for every type of tourist. Every day we enjoyed something different in the region. The grounds for the property are really amazing and it is perfect for multiple families to vacation together.

A can can be helpful but there is also a good bus service to the town at 5 minutes walking.

We would like to come back again.

Spring 2015

  • 5 of 5

Lovely setting, quiet location, owners extraordinarily helpful and kind. Found the positive comments of many of the other reviewers to be quite similar to our reactions, particularly in terms of how comfortable and well-appointed the house is, how beautiful the property, and how accommodating the owners...The hike from the villa to the top of the same mountain/hill is worth the climb for the views of Avesa and Verona...Between the bus and local taxi service (prompt, easy to arrange by phone), trips to and from Verona are relatively easy, but having a car would allow greater access to the countryside around Verona. The owner provided the name of a local driver willing to make daily excursions from the villa, though we didn't take advantage of the service...Be prepared to do some walking if you arrive car-less and plan to have many meals at the house (i.e., buy groceries)...Highly recommend Villa Avesa...

Perfect week in Verona

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and friends just returned from a two week trip across Northern Italy. The highlight of the trip was our week in Verona at this spectacular rental in the darling village of Avesa. The location really is perfect. You are in the country, yet a 10 minute walk to basic services and just a 10 minute drive to the middle of Verona. Delightful farm house that has been beautifully updated with all the modern conveniences. Stunning views from almost every room. Extremely comfortable for two couples though there is a third bedroom. Large kitchen, huge bathrooms, the list goes on. We've been renting apartments and villas all over Europe for the last 7 years. The owner, Filiberto, gets the award for being one of the easiest to deal with. All four of us agreed that if we could give this rental six stars, we would. Can't wait to return.

Lovely villa near Verona

  • 5 of 5

We (two mature couples) stayed at Villa Avesa for three nights in early April and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is totally immersed in greenery, being surrounded by vineyards and the view is breathtaking. It's elevated, on a hill and you can see the valley of Avesa and some of Verona. Lovely and peaceful.

There are three double bedrooms, one downstairs next to the kitchen and two upstairs and two lovely bathrooms, both upstairs. One of them is massive!! The house is quirkily decorated with some period features, in particular a beautiful old fireplace. There is a lovely space outside for lounging and sunbathing. There is also a magnificent swimming pool, but we went out of season and did not use it. It looked stunning! Filiberto, the owner, lives next door and is very helpful, with local information (he recommended a lovely homely trattoria in Verona) and with arrangements for the rental. The booking was extremely smooth and easy. The location is lovely, if you like being in the countryside but also near the city. It takes less than five minutes to stroll down to Avesa main street and get the bus, which will bring you to the centre in around 15 minutes. Check timetables beforehand. You can buy tickets in the local newsagent. TV and DVD player were much appreciated during a particularly rainy day... We recommend to stay at Villa Avesa.

Wonderful week at a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very helpful to us prior to arrival, providing directions and promptly answering the many questions I had about the villa and area. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Filiberto and his beautiful family. We immediately felt welcomed at "at home". The villa was very clean and beautifully appointed, and the kitchen well-equiped for cooking when we chose to. The only negative was the electrical system, which took some getting used to, but once we figured that out (with some help) all was fine. The beds were very comfortable and all linens were crisp and clean. Having a washer and dryer allowed us to pack less, and was a big plus. I am smiling as I write this just remembering opening all the windows and doors and having the spring air and sunshine help us start the day. Speaking of starting the day, the coffee maker is the Italian version, which take some patience and time, and was fine with us, but some people may prefer to bring instant.

The location was wonderful for going into Verona as well as accessing highways to travel to some of the less touristy places. Lake Garda was beautiful (don't miss the castle) and the village of Soave was so relaxing; stepping back in time. Villa Avesa's location made trips into Verona very easy, and there is so much more than Juliette's balcony to see.

The photos here do not capture how beautiful the villa and property really are, perched up on a hill surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. Many thanks to Filiberto and family, and especially for the special shopping trip our daughter was treated to!!! A wonderful villa and perfect week of exploring!
