Around 15km north east of Verona, the Tenuta Le Cave nestles against the Monte Tomelon. Though this area once served as a quarry, it has now become a vineyard. The hotel offers views across a wide valley of forests, fields and vineyards, which can be enjoyed from the hotel terraces as well as some of the rooms, both sophisticated and designed to give guests the greatest comfort. The hotel is made up of two charming and traditional farmhouses with rather surprising interiors: in each of the rooms there is a unique mix of classical art, traditional handicrafts and fashionable design. In the garden, there is a pool surrounded by Roman columns with a spectacular view of Veronian wine country. Boutique Hotel: small hotel with fresh ideas
Quality and originality is the motto of this extraordinary north Italian country hotel. No two of the masterfully decorated and exquisitely furbished rooms are the same. In the Lion Suite, for example, there are a modern bathroom with hydro massage facilities and a hovering bed, waiting underneath a high vaulted ceiling. In the bathroom, an old Roman stone basin contrasts with the modern glass-walled rain shower. In the next room, the bed is made from tree trunks, whereas the one in the third suite is a divine traditional bed in the old farmhouse style. This hotel also stands out from the crowd through its excellent service, providing a chauffeur on request, a concierge and even a private chef who will cook dinner for two. Environmentally friendly air-conditioning systems are supplied with power from geothermal or solar systems. Wine Hotel: private cellar and guided vineyard tours
The Tenuta Le Cave is directly next to a vineyard, with a beautiful vista over the vines. In the hotel’s own cellar, wine connoisseurs can have dinner, or choose from a wide variety of fine wines to drink on the terrace in the evenings. It is also here, in this red brick tunnelled vault, that guests can experience an individual wine tasting session. In addition, the hotel offers wine tours to select properties across the Valpolicella region on request. Food and Drink: exquisite breakfast and traditional cuisine on reservation
Every day begins with a lovingly prepared, delicious breakfast. Reservations can be made for evening meals in the fantastically furnished dining room, where a traditional local menu is served. In the cosy hotel bar with wood panelling, more experienced riders can enjoy a drink mounted on a real saddle. For those a little less used to life on horseback, there are comfortable leather sofas to relax on. Leisure and Sport: relaxation, wellness, riding
The ethos of the Tenuta Le Cave hotel is concentrated completely on relaxation and enjoyment. To this end, there is a choice of several unique relaxation areas for guests, including a wellness spa complete with massage rooms, a sauna, Turkish baths and a relaxation room. However, guests can also relax on the terrace with its spectacular panoramic views over the valley. If the weather is bad, there are plenty of relaxing holiday books to choose from in the Maccalé Lounge, a communal lounge with a glass wall overlooking the garden and comfortable leather sofas. The hotel also provides a further service for riders. In partnership with a local stable, there are guided hacks through the nearby Lessinia Nature Park.
The Tenuta Le Cave is found in a uniquely scenic area around a 20 minute drive to the north east of Verona. The idyllic hills and the lack of any direct neighbours guarantee absolute tranquillity.
