This is the only hotel, B&B or other accommodation that we have ever visited twice.
Since staying at Bagolina last June we have made it our mission to return as soon as possible - our stay was that great first time round. Thankfully, we decided to get married in Italy so used this as the perfect excuse to stay with Elena while we were on our scouting mission last week.
The whole B&B feels like a home and every guest is made to feel so welcome and comfortable. Instantly we settled right back in and it felt like returning to a home from home. Since last time, Elena has created an absolutely stunning kitchen and dining area for breakfast - a proper Italian country kitchen where we could enjoy our sumptuous and extensive breakfast offering. We loved to dwell here after our breakfast and sometimes chat with other guests (normally we keep ourselves to ourselves but this environment is really very familial feeling so you can't resist exchanging travel tips with fellow guests).
My last review mistakenly said that the last bus home from Verona is at 8.20pm but actually it just changes route and there are buses running between verona and parona right through til midnight. This was very useful on the day it took us 3 and a half hours to get back from Lake Garda (bank holiday traffic made an hour and a half trip ridiculously long!)!
We had hoped for better weather and on Easter Sunday we walked into Verona and got completely soaked (again, the walk in seemed to take some time so from now on I will always get the bus between parona and verona!) so definitely go prepared if you're not going in the peak summer months.
As you can tell, I am definitely going back to this region and I will ALWAYS stay with Elena. They say that bad service can ruin a stay at a hotel and the inverse is true here - Elena offers an unrivalled service which, on top of the immaculate rooms and delightfully tranquil area, has won my heart forever more. Forget the romance of romeo and juliet winning my heart in this region - Bagolina seduced me and won me over a second time (I always worry returning a second time somewhere could ruin good memories but this just created more!).
I feel rather reluctant to give this great review because then I may struggle for availability when I want to return!! Enjoy your stay at Bagolina!
