Driving towards Villa Cariola from the Lake, the landscape alters considerably and the rural feeling comes along when you continue. And it is precisely what marks a holiday at Villa Cariola, namely the superb location close to everything you need, to enjoy your stay. Moreover you stay close to shopping facilities, located in the small town of Caprino Veronese, within biking distance 3 km. Also the atmosphere plays an important role here, and it is quite noticeable as soon as you step into the large inner courtyard looking out over the corresponding reason, landscape. Here it is beautiful and peaceful!
The villa has a large, lovely garden, where you will find a appealing pool area with sun beds and umbrellas. A little away from the pool is an outdoor bar where you can buy cold drinks, ice cream and light meals like sandwiches, salads and cold dishes. There are chairs and tables at the bar, but nearby you will find another outdoor area with seating. It is tucked behind the wall facing the garden and is a perfect place to relax with a little reading and a good glass of wine. You are, after all, in the world famous wine region of Valpolicella.

Nobili famiglie means noble families, and refers to the former owners of this beautiful villa. The current owners have tried to keep the style intact, and you can enjoy the original frescoes on the walls of the various rooms. The villa is very popular, and weddings and other festive events are held here throughout the year. Also, the outdoor pool is open to the public.
There are 35 rooms in the villa and the decor is classic and very comfortable. There are several types of rooms, but we opted for superior and junior suites that you can choose from. They are all equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, wi-fi, safe, telephone and hairdryer.

Peaceful, but also with room for children.
Nice and clean, good service with free towels for the pool every day. Good breakfast.
Dark room in 2 stories with very narrow spiral staircase to the upper floor - could have used a terrace or balcony, where you could sit outside/dry the swimwear, etc.
But we could just have looked into that in advance.
