Fantastic bed and breakfast with so much more.Posted Jun 29, 2013
Pros: Its beauty, room size, bed comfort, breakfast and owners
Cons: None - could have stayed for two weeks
Location: Beautiful quiet country side 5 minutes drive to town.
Beautiful Villa with comfortable beds, lovely big room, delicious breakfast with home baked cakes & savories and amazingly helpful owner. Restaurant recommendations were first class and owner and husband transported us to and fro. Hospitality and kindness shown beyond any expectation. Overall so much better than previous 4 star hotel stays during our visit to Italy.

Really lovely hotelPosted Jun 12, 2013
To use the owner Anna's favourite phrase - used to describe all sorts of buildings and works of art in Mantua - the hotel is " vaaary fant..as...tick " . The house is a wonderful mix of old and very new, all mod cons whilst still being essentially an old villa - our room looked over fields of corn/poppies. Very quiet.... By way of modern for instance, there was a wet room type shower, an exercise bicycle. Very good aircon. The breakfasts feature Anna's famous cakes, flans and tarts which change daily. You will need a car to get into Mantua (although we did see an hourly bus that went past the door). Although you might have considered 2kms to be a good walk - and the view of the city as you cross the lake bridge is wonderful, it is not actually practical as there are no pavements and being one of the main roads into Mantua it is busy. The restaurant in the local village that is reviewed in lots of places is indeed very nice with interesting hosts. It IS walkable (10 mins, although this does involve about 5mins on a road with no pavement....). BUT this restaurant is moving 4kms in September. Since I think most people used a car anyway they could continue to do so. Mantua is lovely and very appears not as visited as Padua, Vicenza etc. Just as you cross the bridge there is a large car park with very reasonable hourly rates including free during the lunch siesta and after 8pm. You must visit the Palazzo Te for the insane Romano frescoes of the Fall of the Giants.

Perfect place, best if you're drivingPosted Oct 20, 2011
La Villa is located away from the medieval walled city of Mantova, but it's well worth the trip! The 17th Century building has been delightfully modernised with appealing and quirky design details. The original decorated ceilings and exposed beams remain. Peace, comfort, hospitality and wonderful breakfasts await you. Thank you Anna and Roberto for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable.
