Dimora Valverde

Among the stone houses, in the oldest green valley of Valpolicella area

Dimora Valverde is a historic house dating back to 1797 in the ancient and characteristic district of Pezza, in Marano di Valpolicella, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica, and halfway between the city of Verona and Lake Garda. Renovated numerous times during its long history, it is a typical house on the high hills of the Valpolicella Classica. The thick stone walls support the long rows of beams and the wooden floors, the large room with windows offers a wonderful view of the valley and towards the horizon of the Veronese plain, the spacious terrace becomes the summer living room.

Inhabited for years by the painter Amaranta de Francisci, famous for her splendid portraits of Italian cities of art sought after all over the world, the house offers an atmosphere of serenity and lightness, keeping intact the creative drive it instills in everyone.

Overlooking the valley covered with vineyards, cherry and olive trees, Dimora Valverde B&B can be easily reached by climbing the first hills of the Valle di Marano;

At the beginning of the district of Pezza, on the right, there is a public and quiet car park. 120 meters separate the parking lot from Dimora Valverde B&B, which is the last house south of the village, towards the valley.

Equipped with a large bright living room and an adjacent and spacious terrace with a direct view of the valley, the house has three large bedrooms with private and exclusive bathrooms. The private bathroom of one of the units is outside the room, in the corridor.

Adjacent to the house, a small garden, simple and well-kept, where you can spend moments of relaxation, in the silence of the Valpolicella and in the fresh air of the hills.

The village of Pezza

Pezza is a fraction of the Municipality of Marano di Valpolicella, three kilometers from the main town and 500 meters above sea level. Protected by the Pieve di Santa Maria Valverde, which overlooks it, over the centuries it has been the crossroads of trade in the Marano di Valpolicella Valley.
During the Second World War it was the center of the valley. The first schools in the area were born in this village; At the time there were three ovens, three taverns, shops, cellars, a cobbler, three carpenters, a blacksmith, haberdashery and tailors.
Here too, as in the other villages in the area, there was a "malga", where the milk was "dripped" in turn. Families owned a few dairy cows, and they took turns collecting the entire milk production, which was recorded with the contributions of each family. it was sold or worked to obtain butter (butier), cheese, ricotta (puina). In the 1960s, many families from the district moved towards the plain, where it was easier to find work. In recent years, also thanks to the numerous renovations, the families have increased, about forty, made up of several young couples with children who have given new life to the district.
