Tenuta Le Cave Agriturismo, though conveniently near to the tourist cities of Verona, Vicenza, Padua and, a little farther to the east, Venice, is still surrounded by beautifully peaceful, deep green, countryside.
The area of Veneto is well known for its wine and food, much of it you can taste at the agriturismo’s own restaurant, and examples of which include the classic Verona wine; Valpolicella DOC, soppressa; Verona’s regional twist on Italian salami, Marrone di San Mauro chesnuts, Monte Veronese cheese, Lessini black truffles, and also some other quite unique things like bogoni snails which can be found in a few different local dishes including the pasta dish; embogoné.
This part of Verona is also for its beautiful natural landscapes; hills, mountains, rivers, lakes and valleys. The nearby Parco Naturale Regionale della Lessinia, less than a half an hour from the agriturismo by car, is a great example with plenty of wide open spaces for hiking and mountain biking or just enjoying the quiet calm of nature, the fresh air and the gorgeous views.
The excellent staff will be a good source of information about things to do and see in the surrounding area, and they can also arrange all sorts of tours, excursions, guided hikes, horse riding trips etc. for you, including bespoke tours.
