An introduction to Pianaura Suites

How would you describe Pianaura Suites in a nutshell?

Pianaura Suites is a peaceful paradise in the heart of Valpolicella, just north of Verona near Lake Garda. Our luxury B&B is made up of two 17th century stone houses with two suites located on a hilltop and surrounded by vineyards.

What was your inspiration to open a B&B?

We found theses houses about 20 years ago when my husband was looking for something in the area of Valpolicella. When he saw this place he immediately fell in love with it and decided to buy it. We had originally intended to live here by ourselves instead of opening up a B&B and it was only a few years later after restoring the houses that we decided to open it up to vacation guests as well. We truly enjoy sharing the beauty of this place, its peace and tranquility with our guests.

How would you describe the atmosphere of the suites?

We had a very good architect for the restoration of the houses. My husband and I did the interior design, which is a mixture of items we have brought back from our travels. There are intentionally not too many things around the place as we cherish the simplicity of it. However, it is still very much a work in progress, as we tend to move furniture around to keep things changing.

What is so special about staying at Pianaura Suites?

Pianaura Suites is a very quiet and well-preserved place with a beautiful view of the surrounding nature, which I absolutely love. Our guests usually enjoy just that, being in a place where they can experience a deep silence. All the while the centre of Verona is just a 20-minute drive away, making it an easy destination for meals or a day trip.

What’s been the biggest reward about opening Pianaura Suites as a B&B?

My favourite thing about opening up Pianaura Suites is meeting so many interesting people from all over the world. I can’t be here all day, but I enjoy being here as much as possible to give recommendations on what to do in the area in order to discover the real Valpolicella.

The second suite is very different in design, with the bathroom still inside the suite but down some small stairs. it is also equipped with fridge, kettle, microwave. It’s not a place to cook a meal, but you can prepare something simple like a light lunch or dinner to have in the garden.

Our gardens are also changing all the time. The most important aspect about Pianaura Suites for me is that it offers many small spaces for our guests to enjoy, all with different atmospheres. There is a small courtyard between the two towers, an Italian garden, a formal garden, an Oriental garden, a Dalia garden, terraces and two pergolas. Each of them is laid out and decorated differently.

Things to do in Lake Garda & Verona

  • Art / Culture
  • Wine tastings
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Hiking
  • Cycling

There are many good restaurants close by and also many wineries. The best wine can be found in Valpolicella in a place from the 16th century. You can book a visit and even though it can be quite pricey, it is still a lovely thing to do.

Most of our guests usually want to visit Verona and see the local gardens and villages such as Mantova, which is a little jewel only 40 mins away from the B&B. San Giorgio di Valpolicella is another village that’s a genuine place and not touristic. It is a well-preserved stone village, with a wonderful Romanic church and good restaurants. There is also Molina, which is a beautiful place north of us with a waterfall and very interesting architecture. Lake Garda is about 30 mins away and always lovely to visit. However, it does tend to get very busy with tourists during the summer months.

After venturing out our guests often end up spending a good time at the property, exploring the local trails or taking drives around Valpolicella.

Pianaura is a magical place in a great setting — the beautiful design of the suites, the lovely gardens, the fertile farmlands that surround the hotel... we had a really memorable stay.

We can't rate Pianaura Suites high enough. A dream location with stunning views, the accommodation was absolutely superb and Mara's hospitality was warm and generous. We stayed for three nights but wished we'd stayed a week. It's a fabulous base for exploring the region. Evening strolls through the vineyards are a must and will stay in our minds forever. We'll be booking again on our next trip.
A very important note on getting to Panaura Suites: If Google maps tries to send you left up Via Bionda IGNORE!!! Your car will not get through. Keep going up SP34 until you see Via Canzago on the left, drive for a few hundred metres and look for the carpark that has B&B in metal letters.
You will not be disappointed

The location of Pianaura Suites

Pianaura Suites is surrounded by a small group of houses, vineyards and fields in the area of Valpolicella with its small village, a church, a school and a very good restaurant.

Another village, which is very traditional and not at all touristic, is about two kilometres away where you can find a small market and several good restaurants. A lot of people from Verona come to have dinner there.

Verona is 14 kilometres from the B&B and Sirmione, right on Lake Garda, is 24 kilometers away. The Valpolicella region, just northwest of Verona is well known for its unique Amarone della Valpolicella wine.

When is the best time to visit Lake Garda?

I think it’s very beautiful in May and June, as well as September and October. Our summers are beautiful but can get very hot. At our elevation it can be nice with the breeze coming in, but once you go down to Verona or Lake Garda you will feel the heat.

In spring, we have cherry tree blossoms and flowers, which is very beautiful. Autumn brings the wine harvest and all the plants are changing colours. In winter, the weather can be surprisingly nice and the sun is still out even though the days are shorter.
