Our Villa was edificated by Maffei Family in the early years of 16th century.  In the next century our Villa was inherited by De’ Medici family. Their last descendant, Maria Veronica, married in 1830 Luigi Balis Crema, from which Villa Balis Crema took its name  


We are proud and grateful for the natural setting that surrounds us, a magnificent valley, the Valpantena, a few kilometers from Verona, at the foot of the Lessini Mountains. Not to be missed our vegetable biodinamic garden, which provides genuine row material for our cuisine


Surrounded by a huge park our Villa will give you a lot of relaxing moments.  In our park you can relax under the shadow of our secular trees or in our biological pool made from the ancient fishpond and cleaned without chlorine or chemical elements, just using roots and stones 

Rooms & Suites

Comfort, design and amenities. Twenty-two rooms, unique welcome in pure italian style. 






From April, 29th 2023

Gazega was the traditional end of works party wich was organized in the court at the end of a particularly long and tiring work. A moment of rest and conviviality to savour in good company. And this is what you exactly will find in our Osteria Gazega: genuine flavours in a warm and informal atmosphere, made of smiles and generosity. Always with an eye to our tradition. A good meal with friends that ends drinking a good glass of wine in the shade of the chestnuts tree or on the couch in front of the fireplace.
