We stayed at the converted bakery for 11 nights. The outside of the property is adjacent to the road in the centre of Ponte de Barbarano. Inside is a large grassed area with the owners house to the side. On the far side is an events venue open onto the grass, all within the property. We were warmly greeted by Silvana and made very welcome. We were treated like one of the family. The apartment is adequately furnished and is comfortable. For me, quietness is important so I was surprised that a wedding party had been arranged one night at the events venue. Silvana was very apologetic for the noise. Also there were four large fan units for the air conditioning for the adjacent shop, restaurant and office that form part of the group of buildings, adjacent to our patio door, table and chairs. It was noisy at times to sit at the table or on a lounger due to the fans and subsequent whining noise from the units. The music for a book signing party on another evening ended soon and we went out that evening so were not disturbed further. Silvana had some of her friends back after the signing and on our return we were warmly invited in. A little irritation of the apartment was that the bathroom was small with a shower to one side with no cubicle so the water made most of the floor wet. Silvana was such a charming friendly host it feels bad to mention the issues arising but we felt somewhat unprepared for what we found.

This is a really nice property situated at the top of a very large hill away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Vicenza and an hour from Verona but in easy driving reach to amenities and a 160mph train trip to Venice, which is only 40 mins away by train. Superb views from the property. Our hosts Franca and Nadia were very accommodating and willing to offer advice on local attractions and restaurants.
