Over the last few years, La Staffa farmhouse holidays has taken on a great commitment in converting to alternative energy and from 2008 one of the biggest innovative photovoltaic installations in the Veneto region will start functioning.
The installation supplies clean energy to the entire La Staffa complex and also to the farming company with an estimated production of 60,000 KWh per year.
The necessity to create something different and exploiting the possibility of transforming the company into a small power station was born from the desire to create something for our children; to give them a stimulus to continue managing the family company and be a cut above the rest. What better idea is there than to exploit an inexhaustible source of energy like the sun?
Your horse trekking or bike trips amongst the green morainic hills, along the River Mincio or by Lake Garda will no longer be simple relaxation. Your daily recreation enjoyed at La Staffa farmhouse holidays will become an authentic contribution to making people aware of the use of clean energy, in complete harmony with the surrounding nature.
Your support is important; choose to enjoy yourselves at zero impact, to live with nature without contaminating it, to separate yourselves from the rest without compromising your comfort and pleasure. Choose an innovative and healthy holiday; choose La Staffa holidays.
The origins of ”La Staffa” date back to the sixteenth century, when it was a convent. Only later was it transformed into a farmhouse, comprising a granary, riding facilities, stables and a “brol”: a piece of land destined for the cultivation of forage and the pasture of animals. Still today, the premises are surrounded by the original 16th century stone wall, erected to protect the estate.
A wise method of restoration allowed to preserve the original structure with its massive wooden beams and to safeguard the pure and rural atmosphere of the past.
The unchanged beauty of nature invites to take a rest and to contemplate the surrounding countryside.
The farmhouse consists of 5 double rooms (additional children’s beds also available) and 5 small flats with bathroom, equipped with air conditioning and tv
Where we are
From the farm holiday house La Staffa you can discover the natural beauties of the Morainic Hills and of the Mincio Valley.
Borghetto sul Mincio is an old medieval village which is only 3 Km away: it is built on a river and its richness revolved around the activity of the mills which have been restored. Here you can also see the long Bridge of the Viscontis which around the 14th century used to connect the lands of the Lords of Verona and Mantua. The Scaligeri and Visconti families left a mark here during their dominion, as they did in the nearby town of Valeggio sul Mincio. This town is not only famous for its culinary tradition, in particular for the “tortellini”, but also for the beautiful
castle of the Scaligero family which dominated the valley until the 13th century. From the farm holiday house La Staffa in a few minutes you can reach the Parco Giardino Sigurtà. It is considered one of the top 5 parks in the world and it covers a surface area of 50 hectares, with lawns, flowers, paths, small lakes and centuries-old trees.
Nearby there are two amusement parks, the water park Parco Acquatico Cavour and Gardaland (15 Km away), the largest amusement park in Italy.
Just 30 Km away there is the city of Verona with its history, monuments that date back to Roman and Medieval times, modern art exhibitions and opera performances at the beautiful Arena.
You must see the small ports, olive trees and natural attractions of nearby Lake Garda, just 15 Km away.
We also suggest that you visit the nearby town of Mantua (30 Km) with its typical buildings and porticoes. Visit also the surrounding historic places, scene of many battles fought for our national independence: Solferino, San Martino della Battaglia, Villafranca and Custoza, where you can also drink some excellent wine.
