A former monastery, Veronesi La Torre is now a unique boutique hotel that combines traditional architecture with modern design.
I am lucky to have been invited by Calzedonia Group to its press trips to Verona and this is how I added Veronesi La Torre to the list of my favourite hotels.
I have stayed there a couple of times and been impressed by its ambiance created mainly by a notable mix of traditional Italian architecture and modern design touches. My tip? Whenever you find yourself at Verona, try to spend some time at this unique hotel and enjoy an aperitivo at its beautiful lobby or garden.
An ample courtyard and a castle-like building with terracotta walls tell the story of Veronesi La Torre that used to be an ancient monastery.
The hotel, which is 8 kilometers from Verona away, belongs to the Calzedonia Group too and is located next to the headquarters of the company. It is Sandro Veronesi, chairperson of the group who had the vision of restoring the sixteenth-century rural structure in order to turn it into a modern boutique hotel.
I always love a lot of details there: the big reception sign outside the entrance, the raw wooden floor in the rooms, the iconic pieces scattered in the suites and all the areas designed by famous designers such as Le Corbusier or Verner Pantone, the contemporary works of art in the lobby, the traditional motifs on the terracotta walls, the monastic architectural elements, the heated inside pool at the spa.
