Finestra sul Fiume
Ancient residence for a charming holiday
The Window on the River is the story of Mattea and Pietro's dream of dedicating themselves to the art of hosting. Open the door to your own private paradise!
La Finestra Sul Fiume is located on the bank of the river in Valeggio sul Mincio, a few kilometers from Peschiera del Garda, Verona and the lakes of Mantua, where the hills of Valeggiano, one of the sweetest Venetian landscapes built and designed by the vineyards and gardens, slope towards the river in a very green lawn that dies in the water. The beauty and quiet of this mansion, which dates back to the early 1400s, make this an ideal place for unforgettable stays and offer an unparalleled opportunity for regeneration, combining the delicate pleasures of country life and the attractive luxury of a charming holiday.
La Finestra Sul Fiume is the story of the dream of Mattea and Peter. Mattea, after graduating in law and completing legal practice, decides together with Pietro, a golf professional, to devote himself to the art of hosting. From the passion and energy of both, the idea of transmitting the love for this place was born, transforming, in the absolute respect of the style and spirit with which it was born, the mill by the river into a bed & breakfast, The Window On The River, in fact.
The property dates back to 1971 and only thirty years later, Mattea and Pietro Gandini decide to reside there; the recovery is the result of an innate sensitivity and aesthetic sense that are expressed in the distribution of spaces, in the targeted choice of furnishings and in all those details that make the difference when it comes to atmosphere and charm. Thus this place reveals itself to a small number of guests, attracting them with the particularity of a dwelling that dates back to the early 15th century and of which one perceives, almost immediately, that mix of culture and history, of freedom and naturalness, of beauty and spontaneity.
The rooms are furnished and decorated with objects that have a special value for the owners and are serene and welcoming environments, where you can relax, communicate and feel at ease. Each of them has an unparalleled view of the garden park and the river that lulls you with its slow flow. The rooms, all double, have private bathrooms with shower and hairdryer: ideal for a Romanesque getaway, an anniversary or a precious break. At the Window on the River, both day and night are special. The structure also has internet connection with Wi-Fi system.
Exclusively for the pleasure of guests, immersed in the garden, there is an ideal gazebo to devote to a good read, to relax listening to music or to chat with other guests and where, during the summer, you can sip and enjoy an aperitif before dinner. You can also rent bicycles for your excursions including the beautiful cycle path along the banks of the Mincio from Peschiera del Garda to Mantua, the Sigurtà Park, a unique wonder in the world, in Valeggio and Bosco Fontana.
Mattea and Pietro Gandini, who reside in the main mill, are happy to satisfy the requests and needs of the guests, providing them with useful information for an optimal exploration of the territory, renting bicycles with which to make excursions, reserving the nearby golf course and booking, along the roads of taste, visits to renowned wineries and gastronomic tastings of high quality typical products at the best restaurants and trattorias where, the art of cooking is more than a necessity: it is a ritual, a gift, a way to share the passion for this generous territory.
