The typical Italian farm of 1900 is located in the natural reserve of the Mincio Park, by the river and among the morainic hills of Lake Garda.
We are in northern Italy, between Venice and Milan, just a few minutes from important tourist destinations such as Lake Garda with its offers of leisure and culture and the medieval cities of Mantua and Verona.
Since 1997 it has been possible to spend a relaxing and peaceful holiday on the Mincio river in harmony with nature. The farm's produce is mainly corn, cow grass and red wine as well as session fruits and vegetables.
Stone farmhouse overlooking the Mincio river, built by my great-grandfather "Milani Angelo" in the early 1900s.
Farmhouse built and designed for joint harvesting for field cultivation, cattle breeding and milk production. The farmhouse was later named in honor of the irrigation canal that runs along it, it is fed by the waters of Lake Garda and was built in the 1930s.
The canal takes its name from the Roman poet "Virgilio" (Publio Virgilio Marone 70-19 BC), born in Mantua.
The grandparents told me that given the great importance and possibility of development that the new canal would bring, they had a big party to inaugurate the section just finished and the "Corte Canale Virgilio" farmhouse to give it its name.
This stretch, also characterized by the favorable difference in height, also includes the construction of a hydroelectric power plant.
Today we produce wine, blackberries, vegetables from our garden, honey, jams and lots of good hay for the cows, without herbicides and pesticides.
