La Finestra sul Fiume

Bed & Breakfast

Dreamy, divine and close to Borghetto, a romantic escape for nature lovers, golfers, city folk… with swans, geese, herons and frog chorus


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


An easy drive from Verona, close to Borghetto, is a 14th-century mill in bird-chirped grounds. Here live Pietro, Mattea and little Diletta, plus cats and three resident geese – welcome to the loveliest family. The guest bedrooms are in two outbuildings – rustic, ivy-strewn and charmingly revived. One is all yours, super private, with its bedroom up a spiral stair. White walls are rough plastered, colours are blue, brown, cream and grey, bathrooms are contemporary and views are breathtaking – over park, river, 14th-century bridge and hilltop castello. Breakfast on a rainy day in a big canvas gazebo; on a fine one, by the water under the willows. Pietro and Mattea go out of their way to give each guest the breakfast of their dreams… find yourself feasting on pastries, fruits, hams and cheeses lovingly and locally sourced. Swim in the natural pool, watch the swans drift by, nod off in the hammock, or check out one of the golf courses – Pietro is an instructor! Then stroll into the village – watery, exquisite – for delicious tortellini or a perfect gelato.

I stayed here as part of my honeymoon - it was tricky to find as a new driver to Italy! However, well worth the wait......a romantic place to stay, surrounded by lush countryside, close to quaint villages and the owners helped is to find places to eat, specialising in amazing pasta! Pietro was a fabulous host, who helped us on our departure to find great places to visit in Verona!
