Welcome to Borgo San Verolo

Borgo San Verolo is a former mill which has been converted into an elegant B&B with a contemporary design. It offers the ideal place for a relaxing and peaceful stay in a natural and rural location, a few kilometres away from Lake Garda.

The building has been thoughtfully restored to preserve some of the original features of the former mill which dates back to the 1900s. Natural materials, and traditional and modern furnishings create a harmonious atmosphere with the historic interior whilst offering every modern comfort.

In a privileged position in the characteristic and verdant Val Dei Molini, the building is part of an historic settlement where the Sometti family has lived for generations. Three elegant and spacious B&B rooms are available for our guests.

We offer a delicious homemade breakfast, served in the main dining room or outside. The atmosphere is warm and familiar, making you feel really at home!

THE RENOVATION

Preserving our history

With a desire to bring the old part of the Sometti Family’s Residence back to life, we embarked on a small but ambitious renovation project, designed to respect and give value to this place of history and family life.

The original structure of the mill has been left intact, as have the adjacent barn and a former well (still visible on the ground floor) and many other fundamental and architectural elements such as the windows, exposed beams, etc. which have been renovated and integrated into the contemporary style of the redesign.

THE ORIGINS

The old mill

Since the 15th century, Contrada di San Vérlo has made use of the water resources available, and was the location of mills where cereals were ground; it is believed also that olives were pressed in the area, coming from the fine olive trees which grow in the surrounding hills. The mill at Borgo San Vérlo was particularly original. At the beginning of the 19th century, an enormous mill wheel was put in place using both the natural stream of water and an internal combustion engine, producing meal in much greater quantities than any other water mill in the region. On the ground floor, the opening of a well is still visible. At one time, the well was 12 metres deep, and was drawing water for domestic use. This is recorded in a text which dates back to the 16th century, written to honour Costermano, who attests: ”On the same hills there are freezing wells and springs / and from the top of high cliffs the water rushes, which in its rapid course moves the wheels / and the grain is ground…” The hamlet is quite historic and benefits from panoramic views, and an ambiance that is welcoming and traditional.
