We planned to stay the last night of our 10 day Northern Italy extravaganza at Tenuta le Cave, just outside of Verona. I tend to gravitate towards all things African and the decor of the property was both rustic and safari-esque, so I was sold. We splurged and booked the Lion Suite, a 60 sq ft suite in a villa set away from the main building.
To say that we were impressed is an understatement! We arrived a little before check-in but were greeted with a bottle of local champagne and sat in the lounge enjoying it until our room was ready. Once we were taken over to our room (a short drive over to the villa) we realized that the only other room wasn’t occupied so we had the entire place to ourselves. SCORE!
We were traveling in late September, which is the beginning of the off-season and got great rates and the area wasn’t swarming with other tourists – just how I like it.
“Nestled in the Amarone wine making area, Tenuta Le Cave is a natural, evocative terrace facing the eastern valley of the Valpolicella DOC region and the first summits of the Lessinia Natural Park. The surrounding white stone setting is what remains of the old quarry, now turned into an enchanting vineyard stretching out along the hillside among woods and olive trees.” – Tenuta le Cave website
