Villa Zambonina

(x 12 people)

Sleeps 12 | Bedrooms 8 | Bathrooms 4 | Near Verona, Veneto

Independent villa | Private pool | Air conditioned bedrooms | Maid included |


Villa Zambonina is a magnificent 17th century Palladian villa set on a farming estate near the splendid city of Verona. Grandly scaled, decorated with frescoes and trompe l’oeil paintings and furnished with antiques, it is an appropriate base for exploring a part of Italy known for its operas, fine wines and as the setting of Romeo and Juliet. It is not, however, too formal a house for families, or for those wanting to try out the Veneto’s marvellous range of biking routes. Rare for a house of this age, with air-conditioned bedrooms with an ample supply of bathrooms, including several ensuites, as well as an updated kitchen. The villa is divided into two self-sufficient wings, one facing a beautiful Italian garden, the other a lovely courtyard. There is an endless choice of sitting and dining areas, indoors and out, with several large enough to accommodate the entire group. A gate from the courtyard leads to a swimming pool set on a lawn with plenty of teak loungers and a pergola fitted with a barbeque for alfresco dining. It's a short drive from the villa to Verona or to Lake Garda and the wineries of Bardolino, Soave and Valpolicella.

Thank you for a very enjoyable week for the whole group. We had a splendid time in your lovely old mansion. The dinner party was not to be forgotten a remarkable evening with delicious food. Thank you very much. We had a fantastic vacation in your home with close friends from around the world. You have a wonderful -welcoming home, it was a pleasure to visit. Thank you for the most amazing experience. You home has stripped years of stress off of me, and reset me for at least another decade. What a truly wonderful place. Spending the last week celebrating with old and new friends in such a wonderful home. Memories to last a lifetime. Grazie mille. Paul, Australia. Thank you from all of the Canadians !

The villa has provided a great space for a family reunion and we appreciated Francos assistance with the language interpretation especially with final wedding preparations. Thank you Marina for allowing the use of the villas church and the personal little details you added to the day. It was a bonus to learn some of the family history and over the past two weeks we have been able to explore the surrounding environment in all its beauty despite the heat. We found everyone friendly and helpful. God Bless.

Lovely property and pool with very friendly and helpful staff. Location was great for trips to Verona and Lake Garda. Booked a bus and driver for two trips which were super-efficient, punctual and reliable, no complaints. 5 out of 5 for Tuscany Now , great service, no complaints would use again.

We liked the ambiance of the old palladian villa, the frescoes, the grounds. It was truly like living in a castle. Even our "modernists" fell in love with it.

Barbara Stedronsky

That is was an old historic building of great interest.

Eva Gray

The pool is first rate and the grounds were very nice.

Tom Hill

It was a 300 year old villa with frescos. The plumbing and electricity were excellent (not always the case with these old properties.) Also, the washing machine and dishwasher worked perfectly. Nice big kitchen with good cooktop, plenty of dishes. Giacomina and Roseanne were wonderful. They didn't speak English, but we figured things out. Giacomina was kind and warm. They were efficient and good cooks. They were delightful.
