In the midst of the beautiful Valpolicella region, approx. 15 km from Verona and Lake Garda, is this small and cosy accommodation with just 3 rooms. It is located in the centre of the village of Moron, which in reality only consists of a few houses.
The name 'Locanda 800' refers to the place that was originally a coaching inn, and the building dates from the late 17th Century. Locanda 800 still works as an inn, but due to the fact that it has a fine restaurant, it would probably be more accurate to call it a gourmet restaurant, which also rents rooms.
You will enjoy a stay here if you are seeking authenticity and indeed you are keen to sample the wonderful cuisine and wine of the area. The main occupation of the place is in-fact the wine and the restaurant business. Everything though is very aesthetically pleasing and even before you get inside the door and smell the wonderful cooking, your senses will already be pleased by the sight of the beautiful garden, the cosy terrace, and not least the very well preserved buildings with many fine details.
A strong emphasis is placed on maintaining the original atmosphere of the site, and this applies to both the restaurant and the rooms. The atmosphere is simple, friendly, professional and very familiar. Franco and Emilio who manage the daily operation work hard to make their guests feel comfortable from the first to the last minute.
Own restaurant with local dishes
You can enjoy many delicious local dishes at the restaurant which is located on the ground floor with a large outdoor terrace if you would prefer to sit outside. If you are a wine lover then you will find the other treat in the basement which is a large and impressive wine cellar with vaulted ceilings and stone floors. There is a wonderful wine collection here and you can enjoy regular wine tastings. Please note that the restaurant is closed on Monday.
Fine rooms with antique furniture
The three bedrooms are all comfortable, located on the first floor and decorated with antique furniture. They all have a telephone, satellite TV with flat screen, air conditioning and a bathroom with shower or a curved bathtub. The rooms can accommodate up to three people and some have a mezzanine with a staircase where the third person is accommodated and also where the bathroom is.
