Radamez - welcome

The Farmhouse Radaméz is a charming farmhouse close to Castellaro Lagusello nearby Monzambano located in the beautiful setting of the hills that surround Lake Garda with its typical climate and vegetation.

On the sunny hills, vineyards, woods and fields, olive and cypress trees stand here and there, in a harmonious, evocative and restful landscape.

The unique farmhouse, restored respecting the traditional techniques, is totally surrounded by woods and vineyards in a very quiet and fairly secluded location.

Castellaro Lagusello, one of the most beautiful ancient village in Italy, is famous for its romantic lake which reflects the ancient villa Arrighi, full of historical notes.

Monzambano is dominated by the medieval castle and protected from the splendid church, located in a scenic position which faces a stirring view that embraces the valley of the Mincio, and further, the wide panorama of Mount Baldo and Pre-Alps of Brescia and Verona.

Even the nearby villages of Pille and Olfino boast picturesque spots.

History The Farm offers a charming courtyard with buildings positioned at the center of the property. The conductor represents the fifth generation of the family settled on this land in the first half of the twentieth century.

The farm has evolved steadily over time, adapting to the changing needs of housing and agricultural production. The initial nucleus has, however, lived centuries-old events (some evidences go back to 1500/600).

In the late 50s of the twentieth century Gabriele Zerbini (Venice, 1924 - Desenzano del Garda, 1986) known by everyone since then with the name "Radaméz”, had the good fortune to stay in this farm. Educated man but a true free spirit for his lifestyle and thought, he performed some works of art as a painter in this farm.

His artistic creativity was supported by great skill in the use of brushes and colors and he left, across the south hills of Lake Garda, many and attractive paintings. Those who knew him recalled for his friendly and down-to-earth disposition in dealing with others. A style that we like to call "Naive".

A documentary film that concerns him is titled "Radaméz, the son of the stars". Over time the family has collected some of his paintings and for this, but not only, they decided to give to our farm his artistic name.

Surroundings In the farm and in the nearby areas pleasant walking, cycling activities can be done with the eye catching landscapes, monuments, towers and castles full of history.

"But this is a small Tuscany" said a friend, staying for the first time in this neighborhood.

Not by chance: vegetation, topography and climate recall true corners of Tuscany.

We are very close to the Mincio Natural Park and to the Nature Reserve of Castellaro Lagusello. Every guest appreciates and enjoys the peculiar sweetness of the landscape and mild climate of Lake Garda.

The human presence here goes back to time immemorial because of these natural beauties. On the banks of the moraine ponds and bogs, which Castellaro Lagusello is the most tangible example, many archaeological sites have delivered many artifacts distributed in several museums: that of the nearby Villa Mirra in Cavriana worth a visit.

In Villa Arrighi (Castellaro Lagusello), stopped Napoleon Bonaparte.

Many memorials monuments evidence that many important historical events took part in this area, especially of the Italian Unification (Risorgimento).

In Monzambano in July 1859, Vittorio Emanuele II and Count Camillo Benso di Cavour had a stormy and historical discussion. But everything here speaks of the Risorgimento.

The farmhouse Radaméz is secluded from the clamor of traffic, but quickly connected to a wider and safer road network to reach:

The cities of Mantua, Brescia and Verona; the historical monuments of San Martino della Battaglia, Solferino, Custoza Peschiera del Garda, Sirmione del Garda, Desenzano del Garda; Valeggio with Borghetto sul Mincio and Sigurtà; Lazise with amusement parks (Gardaland - Movieland - Caneva) the many water parks are only a few minutes.
