Decent tho Not Advised Shared Premises w La Serenella
Booked a year in advance for 6 well-travelled couples in their 50’s. Property was sold in that time. Now called Ludwig House on Booking.com. Adequately maintained but be warned: your group are not the only ones housed in this huge structure . The Villa has been divided & another owner runs the other half of the building (La Serenella Villa I think? I’d stay here instead seems more updated). Villa was ok & functional but needs more updating (bathroom drains very slow, old windows w no screens, difficult to lock front doors, no elevator, dishwasher malfunctioning, dining room not cozy better for very large groups 20+, etc.) We were not informed there were guests in other half of building structure & thought there were ghosts or animals running around between the joists! A wedding kept us up all night on our first night (Saturday night)! All the old austere portraits of the nobles seemed to watch you as in the Mona Lisa whose eyes would follow you. Portraits of huge scarabs & other bugs from the African/ Middle Eastern dessert were ominous! Loved the upright piano but it badly needed tuning. There are no elevators & it’s 55 steps to 3rd floor guest room to the left. Exhausting for those on 3rd floor! Great for families w slightly older kids (10+ yrs old) as each separate Suite has 2 full bedrooms + 2 full bathrooms adjacent but not fully connected. Marble stairs can be very slippery & dangerous after a few drinks or is exhausted. Pool was not well maintained so no one used it. Kitchen very nicely appointed but no screens on doors & was next to outdoor garbage bins so lots of flies fly into kitchen. Saw a “cockroach” type bug once on kitchen floor. Kitchen garbage doesn’t have a lid at all much less a much needed sealed lid. Bathrooms hairdryers didn’t work but property Mgr ordered new ones from Amazon rush. Dishwasher needed repair as plates/glassware/cutlery always had a “murky film” on them even after running dishwasher twice! We never felt they were clean enough to eat/drink on safely! Did a lot of hand washing. Not enough luggage racks, towels, hangers. Had to poach from the unused “children’s” rooms & manager ordered some more. Thankfully wall unit air conditioning worked well. Outdoor patio furniture was great. Property large enough for a little bike ride around. There’s a chapel on site as well. Views were lovely from bedrooms as perched on a hill. Walking distance to excellent family or owner-operated restaurants @ very reasonable prices (eg. Corkage €5./bottle!!)! Short drive from excellent wineries! check out Montanari & do a picnic in their beautiful vineyard!! Do bike tour along river near Lake Garda! Check out Riva Del Garda lifestyles of the rich & famous! Tyrolean Alps feel more Austrian than Italian for something different. Absolutely beautiful area!

Simply wonderful!
We hosted our wedding in the Villa and stayed there a few days before and after the wedding. To say that the place is amazing would be an understatement, its simply wonderful! The rooms are incredible, big, spotless, comfortable. Ludovico and Joyce are two of the best hosts we have ever encountered. Very accommodating, pleasant and welcoming. We very highly recommend Villa San Bonifacio and wait to go back again next year.

Mit 20 Personen Silberhochzeit hier gefeiert und eine Woche gewohnt. Wir sind begeistert. Tolle Location die alle Gäste positiv überrascht hat. Top renoviert mit modernen Bädern und lautlosen effizienten Klimaanlagen in allen Zimmern. Was könnte man alles aufzählen, gute Liegen im Park, große Zimmer, Autos hatten alle Platz, abgeschirmt, Hausmeister für alle Probleme... jederzeit wieder! Jedes Gemecker wären Luxusprobleme....

A wonderful experience, and an wonderful host
It's hard to say which was more lovely -- the beautiful historic house, the extremely well-kept grounds, or our host, who was so consummately gracious and helpful. The caretaker was a young Dutch woman who was also very friendly and helpful, and when we asked if it could be arranged for someone to come in and make us (a group of 11) a dinner in the (gorgeous) formal dining room, she founds us someone to do it and she served as sous-chef. It was a wonderful meal -- everything about La Senerella was wonderful and we hope to return one day!!

A great place to relax
We had a wonderful vacation at the MAISON LA SERENELLA villa and recommend the fabulous property to any family looking for a great place to relax, enjoy the house, its special atmosphere, the great garden and the area surrounding. The house is very old and decorated accordingly, with very elegant rooms especially in the ground and second floor. All bedrooms are air-conditioned, except one double-bed bedroom at the top third floor. The house is very roomy, very well furnished and made us feel at home. The house is fully-fully equipped with everything we could just think of. We had everything needed in the kitchen. The dining area is very big and easily accommodated our family of 16. The children had great time and enjoyed all the sport activities and toys available at the house, such as ping-pong, soccer, cricket, badminton, bicycles, pool games, etc… The private garden/park that surrounds the house is huge. We enjoyed playing around it and eating breakfast every morning at the garden table. Everything that is detailed in the "Amenities & details" section of this site is present at the house and more, in very good condition. The house can accommodate up to 20 people in 8 bedrooms. A few bedrooms are connected and share the bath and toilet. The house has 6 toilets and 4 baths/showers. The only two problems we had were an electricity blackout due to too many electric machines working at the same time (dishwasher, oven, boilers, etc). Since we were told upfront it can happen we knew what to do. The second problem was a lack of hot water when the whole family wanted to shower. There are two regular hot water boilers at the house, one at each floor, and it is not enough for 16 people. The location of the villa is ideal in order to travel around Lake Garda and to travel to Venice, Verona and the children parks such as Gardaland. Mr. Lodovico, the house owner, is a very generous and kind man. He was available for us at any time and did everything he could to make sure we are satisfied and that we have everything we needed.
