La Finestra Sul Fiume is located on the banks of the river in Valeggio sul Mincio, just a few miles from Peschiera del Garda, Verona and Mantua's lakes, where Valeggio's hills slope down into green pastures that terminate in the river, making it one of the most beautiful panoramas in the Veneto region, made up of vineyards and gardens.
The beauty and peace of this area traces back to the early 1400's and make it the ideal place for unforgettable stays that offer you an unbeatable opportunity to regenerate. Here, the delicate pleasures of country life are combined with the attractive luxury of a charming holiday.
For the exclusive use of the guests' pleasure, we have a gazebo immersed in our 6.000 sqm. garden. It is ideal for dedicating yourself to a good book, for relaxing whilst listening to music or for chatting with other guests as well as enjoying an aperitif before dinner during the summer. In addition, guests can hire bikes for bike rides. We recommend the beautiful bike trail along the Mincio's banks from Peschiera del Garda to Mantua, the Sigurtà Park, a unique wonder of the world in Valeggio and Bosco Fontana.

La Finestra sul Fiume is located in a natural park of rare beauty and luxurious nature. The river Mincio that runs aside the properties is one of Italy's cleanest rivers. It is full of fish and is the breeding ground for an extraordinary amount of species of birds and other aquatic animals. At la finestra sul fiume we want to protect the future of this natural environment that has been given to us. We are aware of our responsibility to preserve and take care of it to minimise the effects of our presence of the environment.
Since opening in April 2006 we are taking small steps towards becoming sustainable:
- We continue to plant native trees and flowers;
- We only use natural fertilisers;
- We recycle glass, metal, plastic and paper;
- We encourage our guests to limit their use of water, energy and washing liquids during their stay;
- Continuous reflection, revision and implementation of our sustainability project.
