The red and yellow 18th-century villa is flanked by a stunning Italian garden shaded by oak, fir and plane trees and embellished with statues. Formerly the residence of noble families, the villa exudes historic charm, with original frescoes and works of art. The 35 rooms and suites are spread out in the main villa and in the two lateral wings. They’re elegantly decorated, with period furnishings and rich fabrics. Some have stone fireplaces and wooden ceiling beams, while bathrooms are terracotta or marble, and are equipped with bespoke Villa Cordevigo products from their estate-produced Chiaretto wine.
Each stay should include a dinner at Michelin-starred Oseleta, run by chef Marco Marras, who focuses on traditional flavours and the agriculture culture of Cordevigo. Simplicity, excellence and seasonality drives the ever-changing menu, delivering inspired Italian dishes, paired with only the finest wines. The extensive wine list features fine labels from all over Italy as well as Valpolicella, Ripasso and Amarone, still and sparkling Chiaretto, Lugana and Prosecco, all produced at the villa’s Villabella vineyard. You may also wish to head to the more informal Bistro, serving excellent Italian cuisine on a terrace overlooking the swimming pool and surrounding vineyards, while drinks are enjoyed at Fiordilej Bar, set in a former vaulted storeroom and cellar with dark furniture featuring deep burgundy upholstery.
The Italian gardens are a gorgeous spot for a stroll, and there’s a pleasant spa offering a range of exclusive Vinoble wine-based products. You’ll find a Finnish sauna, infrared sauna, steam room, whirlpool tub, multi-sensory showers and relaxation room. There’s also an attractive outdoor swimming pool and a small gym with Technogym equipment.
