“A Wonderful Time Had By All”
Reviewed 5 December 2014 for a stay in May 2014

There are not enough superlatives to describe our time in this wonderful villa. Eight of us (four couples) were fortunate to spend a week with Tomasso and his family as our hosts.

The villa itself met all of our expectations in size, layout and comfort. It is located in a lovely area untouched by modern development. But our stay was made exceptional by the warmth and generosity of our hosts. On the evening of our arrival, Ella prepared a delicious meal that set the tone for the week. Tomasso led us on a very informative tour of a winery where we sampled the local wines and olive oils. As we headed off on day trips, Tomasso provided valuable information about routes, parking etc. There was an abundance of nearby markets, both supermarkets and smaller groceries that allowed us to take advantage of the well stocked and ample kitchen. (My husband cooked an eggplant dish that is a gourmet highlight of the trip.)

Some of our best memories are of an evening spent with Tomasso, Ella, their young daughter and Ella's mother. We had invited them to join us for an "American" meal (meatloaf, macaroni and cheese and an apple crisp). We learned much about the history of the villa, which has been in the family since the 1600s, their family and the region.

Villa Sogara was a magical experience for me and my family. We have all seen beautiful pictures of Italian estates and vineyards. The stay at Villa Sogara was much like going inside the picture and seeing the world as an Italian family would see it. The hosts at the Villa were magnificent and graciously brought us into their world. We experienced Italy like never before! The accommodations were remarkable, with everything necessary to just sit back and relax. We will definitely go back again.

“Excellent accomodation and food”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We just spent a wonderful week at Villa Sogara as a group of 13 with the youngest age 6 and the oldest 75. Tomasso and Ella are wonderful hosts and we had breakfast every morning outside and had 4 dinners at the house. All the food was outstanding and Ella dealt very well with one of our party who was a vegan. Accomodation is old style Italy with lots of antiques and family heirlooms which give the villa a real sense of history. Pool is modern and great for a drip at the end of a long day sightseeing. All in all an excellent week and Sogara is a great location for a large group. Center of Verona is 25 mins away and you can be in Venice on the train in just over an hour.

“A fabulous week at a beautiful, historic villa surrounded by lush vineyards.”

Villa Sogara exceeded our expectations from the moment we drove through the iron gates. The villa is steeped in history and Tommaso and Ela were wonderful hosts who tended to all of our needs and more. Our extended family of 12 enjoyed the outdoor dining area and pool after long days of touring the region. The location is ideal for exploring Venice, Verona, Lake Garda and surrounding medieval villages. The villa is magnificently furnished with antiques and Persian carpets. The air conditioning and washer/dryer were much appreciated as was the well-furnished kitchen. We can't say enough good things about our stay at Villa Sogara!

“Wonderful week in the Veneto”

My wife Lorraine and I rented Villa Sogara for our family of ten, our children and their children. The villa, the pool, the vineyards and the surrounding area could not have been improved on. Tommaso and family were more than accommodating, friendly and full of suggestions. One day we took the train from Verona to Venice, where we spent a night. Tommaso gave us ideas where to park, time to leave, making our trip stress free.
The villa is magnificent, comfortable, immaculate and spacious. We were there with four children, a little one just over a year and she had a great time, in the pool and on the grounds. Tommaso lives on the property so he is always available for assistance.
