The “Zitelle di Ron” (the spinsters of Ron) are called Nana and Gina: They are characters from the hamlet’s
past to whom this
B&B Wine and Wellness centre is dedicated, located a stone’s throw from the centre of Valdobbiadene, in
the hamlet of Ron, surrounded by Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG vineyards. It’s the ideal place to relax
without giving up on the services offered by the town centre.
The hospitality structure offers overnight lodgings and breakfast in six comfortable doubles, triples and
family suites, one of which is fully equipped to accommodate people with disabilities.
A brand-new wellness area and a peaceful inner garden allow our guests to blend the impact of discovering a
land rich in nature, history, culture, wine and food; with the need to relax.
In the small square of Ron, where within the space of a few metres, you can find the historical fountain, the
church and the bell tower, lies the agritourism that was obtained by restoring a portion of the old familyhouse, where Nana and Gina; characters from the hamlet’s past, lived with their parents and brothers in
between terrible times of war, post-war recovery and complex family matters and events. A place, like many
others, rich in stories of families, of war and emigration, of hard labour, success, failure and rebirth. A tale of
strong women infused within these walls till this very day.
Giovanna, called “Nana”, was a cook who had worked for many years for the hotel and restaurant ‘Alla
Torre’, a historical local business in Valdobbiadene, and before that in Venice for a famous restaurant not far
from Saint Mark’s square.
In her later years she retired to the family home together with her sister Luigia also known as ‘Gina’, who
worked as a seamstress all her life while looking after the family home, vineyard and the rest of the property.
They spent the final years of their lives together, to this day many remember them to be bad-tempered and
irritable in the face of life, while others recall them being generous and welcoming. Whatever the case Nana
did not leave any of her famous recipes for posterity, and once the courtyard, dubbed the “Vatican” due to
the fact no one was allowed to enter, was accessible again, it was found to be full of footballs lost by the
children playing in the square...
