There are those who love to spend their holidays in the mountains, those in big cities, those in warm places but, for true wine & food & spa lovers, there is no doubt: the ideal holiday is in a Wine Hotel with a Spa ,where taste and relax are at the center of the experience.
Imagine waking up inside a finely furnished room. The scents of a breakfast overlooking the historic courtyard of a seventeenth-century dwelling, with an adjoining Romanesque church, give you a good morning.
Two steps to stretch your legs in the centuries-oldsecular park, but for the more active there is a fitness room in order to have no regrets for gluttony sins of a lunch in the villa or a dinner surrounded by fine wine bottles everywhere.
Indulging in the combinations studied by the chefs and the Sommelier is a must: an award-winning wine list with the coveted 2 glasses of Wine Spectator will make you travel between the territories all over the world, and the reinterpretations of raw ingredients at zero km will give you flavors that you will carry in your heart.
Now, however, it is time for pampering: thermal water in all ofits forms and wine therapy will be regenerating for your body, mind and spirit.
A dream? No, it is Villa Quaranta Tommasi Wine Hotel & SPA, in the heart of the Classic Valpolicella at the gates of romantic Verona, and a step away from the glimpses of Lake Garda.
