Dream Wedding PART 2

  • 5 of 5

...The villa was everything we wanted and our room was HUGE – I used it to get ready with all the bridesmaids and the mums on the morning of the wedding. Mirella also made up a single bed for Richard to sleep in for the one night before the wedding so we could keep our tradition of not seeing each other the morning of the wedding. The villa is so big, I had the whole first floor without needing to bump into Richard or see him before the ceremony.

The kitchen is fairly basic but well enough equipped to make breakfast and lunches for everyone. The caterers used the villa kitchen to produce everything for the wedding meal and so all of the food was served fresh and piping hot. After our ceremony we had our wedding meal outside in the courtyard area – it was a glorious, warm day in September. If it were to rain however we did have a plan B which was to use the large area under the arches as you arrive into the property where we could have arranged the tables.

There are plenty of rooms to explore in the villa including a music room, a huge front room with large paintings and a very ornate chandelier and a billiard room which was a favourite amongst the men in the group!

From the villa you can walk right into the small quiet village with a couple of local shops, café’s and restaurants. There’s a really nice bakery in the village where we ordered various croissants and pastries for most mornings and they were delicious! There are some gorgeous restaurants too not far away from the village where we ate as a group. The area around the villa is also beautiful and perfect for walking and cycling. It really is a beautiful rural location.

The outside space was also plentiful and it was all enclosed with gates and high walls so very safe for families with children. The pool was also great for the young ones, yes it was a raised pool but it was welcoming in the heat. One thing – make sure you don’t forget your mosquito repellent!

Thank you to Mr San Bonifacio for letting us stay at your very grand villa, thank you Marta for your help and a special thank you for all the effort Mirella put into our stay making it exactly how we wanted it.

We loved every bit of our stay at in Villa Bartolomea and our magical wedding in Italy and we couldn’t have asked for anything more from the Villa Mila or from our wonderful hosts.

Dream Wedding PART ONE

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mila is a very grand house in a sleepy little village of Villa Bartolomea about 30 minutes south of Verona and close to the airports of Verona, Bergamo and Venice.

We have visited Italy many times previously and have spent many happy weeks travelling around its various cities, towns and villages. We also got engaged in Italy earlier in 2015 so we wanted to have our dream wedding there.

We only wanted an intimate affair with our immediate family and friends and were looking for somewhere to accommodate 26 people with enough rooms, bathrooms, a nice large kitchen and plenty of space both inside and outside.

When we found this villa we thought it suited our requirements perfectly. After a couple of months corresponding with Mirella, we booked a flight to visit and have a look at it a little more. Mirella met us at the villa and she was amazing, showing us around the building and the gardens and explaining how the space had been used before by other guests. It really helped us visualise what our wedding at the villa could be.

Mirella also acted as our wedding planner in Italy and was absolutely invaluable. Before we arrived we had discussed at length via email what we were aiming for and she made appointments with all of the relevant people in the village and surrounding towns – no small task when you consider that this included the florist, the priests (English speaking), the bakery for the cake, the photographers and much more. She even arranged for a bouncy castle and outdoor play centre to arrive for the children whilst we were there.

Best of all however was the visit to the caterers which took place at their local restaurant and where we tasted all 8 courses of the sample menu that we had chosen with all of the accompanying wines……amazing!

Mirellas organisational efforts were great and we managed to meet all of these people in the 2 days that we spent in Villa Bartolomea. Whatever we asked for, she had a solution and we couldn’t have done it without her – thank you so much Mirella.

We arranged to get married in the Church in the centre of Villa Bartolomea – just a 2 minute stroll from the villa. We all walked it to the Church on the morning of the wedding. The church is breathtaking and large enough to hold a couple of hundred people – more than enough for our group. That said, it felt perfect and the acoustics of such a large space together with the harpist and flutist only added to the magic of the occasion.........

Relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We were in all 13 persons staying at Villa Bartolomea for one week. The house is very old, but really beautiful and kept in a very authentic style. We enjoyed the big garden and the swimming pool. The manager at the house were very helpfull - thank you Mirella.

It was a very hot week, so we were missing the sea. One day we drove to the seaside and it took 1 1/2 hour, so it was possible to do.

The city is very quiet - a bit too quiet for our opinion, but with a car it is possible to go to cities with more pulse.

The manager suggested us to go to a restaurant called agri tourismo and it was a big succes - definitely a place you have to go for dinner.

All in all we had a great stay and a time to remember.

Best regards Lisa

Dream come true wedding

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding arranged in beautiful Villa Mila and everything was even a lot more than we expected! After reading the reviews here we had high expectations but everything was like from a fairytale! Our group of 19 people was much more than satisfied!

The villa itself is a monument with several different, well designed rooms. The garden is large and beautiful. The children especially loved the pool area! The villa was a perfect venue for the wedding. The ceremony and dining were both held in the garden area under the big trees. Even the weather was in our favour! +30 degrees celsius everyday! The opportunities in Villa Mila are endless! Sightseeing, sunbathing, cycling, tennis... Everything! If we had one more day there we would spend it by cycling around the beautiful area. The riverside views are breathtaking and create an idyllic feeling of small village Italy! What we also loved was the friendliness of local people. The villagers of Villa Bartolomea were extremely friendly to us after hearing that we would get married there. The location is also excellent since it´s not very far away from Verona, Lake Garda and Venice. Usually you´d be more than satisfied with all this above, but in this case Villa Mila is much more.

We can´t praise the kindness, helpfulness and graceness of Count San Bonifacio enough! He made our trip special! Not to mention Mirella. She is the perfect hostess and the nicest person ever! Absolutely lovable people! They helped us in everything we needed. The moment you meet theme you feel like you have known them for years.

What can we say? Is five stars enough? We´ll be back, definitely!

Enjoy a piece of traditional Italy at Villa Mila.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa. We had our concerns about whether this deal was too good to be true, but after staying a week at villa Mila, our party of 16 Americans and Italians were absolutely pleased. The villa is rustic enough to be different then a tourist hotel but is still comfortable, spacious, and clean. In short, this villa remains a piece of historic Italy that should not be missed. The villa itself offered LARGE rooms with painted ceilings( Frescos) and ample bathrooms for the lot. The group that travelled with us was...picky...but thoroughly enjoyed the villa since it offered great accommodations and the chance to connect with family. The grounds were breathtaking...the 2 friendly cats, Pino the dog, the pool, the ancient buildings on site....wow! . In addition, after reading the previous reviews about Mirella the caretaker, she had a lot to live up to. She surely did and was always available to offer the whole group advice as to where to eat, wineries, and everything else about the area. One more thing, we vacationed with other Italians from Northern Italy and they were also very much impressed with the villa and the hospitality of Mirella and the owners. This place made our vacation! Don't hesitate....call now to try to reserve a week or two because me and all of my friends will be calling soon to reserve another spot. What an amazing experience that will not be forgotten! Thank you to Mirella, Count San Bonifacio, the hospitable town of Villa Bartolomea and to the Internet for making this possible.

Fairy Tale Wedding in Italy

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mila (the house, Mirella, the owner and village) contributed to our fairy tale wedding in Italy!! From day one, Mirella assisted with every query we had and she became our wedding coordinator in Villa Bartolomea, we couldn't have asked for a more capable and willing person!!

Our wedding week was the highlight of our lives and our guests - the historic house, the beautiful gardens, the friendliness of the staff, Mirella's support, the visit by the owner, the village's assistance all added to this amazing experience!! We are definitely planning a reunion!

I would highly recommend Villa Mila for any gathering - a wedding, family or friends reunion or holiday!! We had days at the villa and away.

It is so central - close to the basic shops (bakery, deli, restaurants, chefs), walking distance to the regional / national railway and only 50 min from Verona by train, which connects with so many other places like Venice and Lake Garda.

The villa accommodated all our guests of different ages and it so spacious with many living rooms, social rooms, spacious and well equipped kitchen, many on-suite bathrooms to the bedrooms. The villa reminded us all of the Sound of Music!

We had our wedding service in the local cathedral and the reception in the villa's garden, more beautiful you will not find! July was the perfect time as it is mid summer and after a day of sightseeing, everyone ended in the big pool.

With Mirella's support, we arranged many activities: lawn games, a pasta-cooking evening, local shopping, wedding catering, flowers, church rehearsals and visits and decor.

Villa Mila is a magical and very special place - it is really as beautiful as you've seen on the photos!! We brought a professional photographer along from South Africa and it was a photographer's dream house and yard!!

If you would like to have a fantastic and memorable time with a group of people, in the heart of Italy, in a scenic area, central with great service, Villa Mila is the place!!

Owner's Response: Dear Loraine, the best you could have ever said about our home and about your sojourn in Villa Mila, you have written in your review above. What can I say ? “Thank you” is too little ! But however: Thank you for such a great appreciation for the structure and the spaciousness of the house, for its central location and placement in our beautiful region, for its park and the immediate surroundings and the peacefulness of the site and, particularly, for such rewarding words on Mirella and all the staff of Villa Mila who really were enthusiastic in doing all the best they could in assisting such a marvelous couple of spouses, like yourself and Gabriel, in the most remarkable day of your life. But Mirella and myself really want to thank you for your great kindness and pleasantness, your perfect understanding of all the needs and peculiarities of our villa and the respect and appreciation of all members of your group for the efforts that Mirella and our staff made for making your sojourn a very special holiday and event. Ciao Loraine and Gabriel ! Come back soon, even for a quick hello and, maybe, for introducing to us a small beautiful baby ! Alessandro
