Perched on a hilltop overlooking vineyards sits Tenuta Le Cave, an eco-friendly viticulture property offering super comfortable and stylish accommodation, while the picturesque rural setting boasts panoramic views to the Valpolicella DOC valley and the Lessinia Nature Park. And yet the beautifully restored set of buildings and working vineyard are just 40 minutes from Verona.Sustainability is important to the team, with energy efficiency achieved via geothermal and photovoltaic systems.
The estate is devoted to the production of high quality organic and biodynamic wine. Once a quarry, now lies sprawling vines, woods and olive groves. Sample their Valpolicella, Amarone, Prosecco down in the cellar, where there are daily tastings.
It would be foolish to stay at Tenuta Le Cave and not sample the first-rate Italian fare with a twist that's served at the on-site restaurant. And what could be better than pairing the seasonal plates with the estate's organic wine? Dine at lunch or by candlelight at dinner; either way the space is inviting, with wooden beams, exposed brickwork, country-chic tables and designer chairs.
And if you fancy trying your hand in the kitchen, daily classes are available (advance booking required).
The interior spaces at this boutique property have been elegantly restored using reclaimed materials, and the décor is designed to harmoniously reflect the natural beauty of surrounding area.
Luxurious accommodation is offered across Superior and Deluxe double rooms and suites. You'll find some in the main house, others in Villa Maccalé, located about 500 metres away. Wood seamlessly blends with stone, and local architecture and Italian art fuses with influences from far flung destinations. Each bedroom truly is a masterpiece and unique.
All en-suite guest rooms and suites are air-conditioned, with a balcony or patio. Fluffy bathrobes and cosy slippers are provided alongside a selection of modern amenities, and from the floor-to-ceiling windows you can enjoy vistas across the rolling Valpolicella hills and into the vineyard valley.
Tenuta Le Cave is situated in a scenic and peaceful location that's ideal for a romantic getaway. On-site, guests can relax and unwind with a soothing massage treatment in the full-service spa, or swim in the outdoor infinity pool and soak up the sunshine on the terrace. Visiting Verona, trekking, heading out on two wheels or horseback, and checking out the Molina waterfalls are just a handful of things to do in the surrounding region, but soon enough you're sure to crave the tranquility of the hotel.
