VILLA SAGRAMOSO SACCHETTI: The origin of the Villa Sagramoso Sacchetti (formerly of Arco) is to be found in an ancient agricultural court, perhaps medieval, equipped with rusticals, an oven and a dovecote tower, built on a spectacular promontory overlooking the Adige and Valpolicella . What remained of the ancient Villa was purchased in the early 60s of the last century by the spouses Alessandro and Rosandra Sagramoso Sacchetti with the support and precious advice of the Veronese historian Giuseppe Silvestri and the then superintendent Pietro Gazzola.
In the following years, the Sagramoso Sacchetti Counts undertook a difficult work of recovery of the monumental complex, bringing the Villa and the historical appurtenances back to life.
The new generation of the family has decided to re-propose the authentic essence of the Venetian Villa, as a patrician house at the center of agricultural activities, in order to make you relive the atmosphere and traditions of this ancient land.
The Relais Villa Sagramoso Sacchetti offers, for the stay of its guests: 2 Suites on the first floor with double bedroom, dressing room and private bathroom (2 person); 2 Superior Suites on the first floor with double and single bedroom, dressing room and private bathroom (3 people); 2 Suites on the second floor of the Villa, equipped with air conditioning (portable), with double bedroom, dressing room and private bathroom (2 people); 2 Apartments in the park of the Villa of 85 square meters.
