PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Torre dei Malaspina is a portion of a typical country residence in the Verona plain. There has already been mention of it since the 15th century and the property on which the villa was built can be seen in various beautiful drawings of the 17th and 18th centuries. The tower, now completely covered in ivy, was built in the second half of the 19th century and, in 1813, Francesco Malaspina utilised the property for his own use.

The space
The property has four floors. From the elegant courtyard you accede to the large, ground-floor entrance with vaulted ceiling that leads to the stairwell up to the top floors. From the stairwell you accede to a guest bathroom, to the dining room and, across a hallway, to the fully-equipped kitchen. This hallway then leads to the living room with ornamental fireplace and then on to a room used as a library. From here another hallway/stairwell leads to a further guest bathroom. The choreographic antique marble staircase leads up to the first floor where a central hallway leads to two bedrooms and to a living/reading room. The first bedroom is a double with en-suite bathroom with tub and shower head, while the second is a twin with additional single sofa bed and en-suite bathroom with tub and shower head. From the living/reading room you go to the stairwell leading up to the tower (second floor) which leads to a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with tub and shower head, all in the particular style typical of the area. From this bedroom an internal staircase leads up to the third floor with an original reading room with characteristic windows offering a beautiful view of the park and pool area.

Where you’ll be

Capitello, Veneto, Italy

The villa is located in the Verona plain on the border with the province of Mantua, in a central position with respect to the more famous tourist destinations like Verona, Mantua and Lake Garda. The property is located in the little town of Cocamarise which consists of two main areas: the old part called “Piazza” and the new part called “Capitello” which is currently the centre of town. Services for basic needs, like restaurants, shops, minimarket and banks, are about 1 km from the villa. The area is rich in history and culture: Cocamarise is located 31 km south of Verona and its territory extends towards the plain among the foothills of the southern Monti Lessini: the landscape is characterised by the regular ridge of the “Monte di mezzo” and the more articulated one of “Sovizzo-Alto”, between which runs the long Onte Valley, crossed by the river of the same name. An hour's drive away is the city of Vicenza, a UNESCO world heritage site, known for its elegant buildings designed by Andrea Palladio, the 16th century architect: the Basilica Palladiana, Palazzo Chiericati, now seat of an art gallery, the nearby Teatro Olimpico and, on the outskirts of the city, Villa La Rotonda. Also an hour's drive away are the amusement parks of Lake Garda - Gardaland, MovieLand, Caneva etc. - and the whole territory of the lake with its many attractions. For food and wine lovers, the territory of the Verona plain is still today predominantly agricultural and boasts a series of typical products of remarkable quality, such as the Vialone Nano Veronese rice with IGP label (IGP, Indicazione Geografica Protetta = PGI, Protected Geographical Indication) which has now established itself as the preferred variety of rice by chefs for the preparation of risotto, the excellent Rosso di Verona radicchio, also with IGP label, the Guà red potato, cabbage, asparagus, pumpkin, melon, each linked to a particular production area. Wine production is exceptional: Verona is the first province of Italy for the offer and quality of DOC wines (DOC, Denominazione Origine Controllata = Controlled Designation of Origin); from the twenty-two DOC wines produced in Veneto, ten come from the hills of Verona and are inextricably linked to the production areas. A large part of the territory of the province is, in fact, a production area for DOC-recognised wines. Among the hills and the eastern Verona plain are the wines Arcole and Soave, while moving towards Lake Garda you find Bardolino and in the immediate hinterland, Custoza. The most famous Verona DOC wine, with no offence to any of the others, must be Valpolicella. Lovers of outdoor life will have access to numerous cycle and pedestrian paths, tennis courts with the Tennis Club Sanguinetto (5 km), a riding school (3 km) and golf courses with the 7-hole Golf Club Corradini (18 km). As regards shopping, in addition to the famous boutiques on Corso Giuseppe Mazzini in Verona, you can easily get to the centre of Verona, with the Arena and the house of Romeo and Juliet, an occasion to visit the beautiful historic centre. Torre dei Malaspina is easily accessible by the main means of transport: the Bovolone railway station is 7 km away, the bus stop is 1.5 km away while the motorway exits are Mantova Nord (30 km) and Verona Sud (45 km).
