The North East Italy region
Verona’s area lays between the Lessinian Mountains on one side and the river Po on the other. The river Po is the longest in Italy and offers an attraction for those who love boating. The vast territory between the river Po and Lake Garda is called the Great Valleys of Verona. This is an idyllic spot of tranquillity where stately country houses can be seen here and there in the landscape. Gentle hills towards the North of Verona are covered with vineyards and olive trees, whereas the plain is traversed by streams and country roads which divide wheat fields and poplars.
Verona’s hills are renowned for their fine wines, namely the Valpolicella, the Amarone and Recioto wines of the Valpolicella, the Soave wines to the east, the Bardolino, the Custoza and Lugana wines produced south of Lake Garda and finally the wines of the "fort district" of the Adige Valley. A visit, therefore, to the hidden pleasures of the wine-producing district with its cellars, its Romanesque abbeys and churches, sumptuous villas, impressive crenellated fortresses, parks and archaeological sites of extraordinary beauty, is an absolute must.
This district is particularly proud of its cuisine, which can be tasted in its countless village feasts, as well as through the hospitality of hotels, restaurants, inns and bed and breakfasts of all types spread out throughout the area.

Venice and Lake Garda and Padua are about one hour and a half from the village. The nearest train station is at Sermide and is at 3 Kilometres from the property. The fortunate geographical position occupied by Castelnovo Bariano allows visitors to visit the above mentioned towns in a day’s trip and come back in the evening to enjoy the tranquillity of the village.
