The soul of Südtirol


A wonderful place

Agriturismo Corte Civa was founded in 2008, when Eva and Stephan Masoner arrived with their three children from Gries (a town near Bolzano) to Bezzetti, a hamlet of Volta Mantovana, in the heart of the Morainic Hills of Garda. They are fascinated by this court, originally an old convent, which takes its name from the owls (in the local dialect “cie” from which “civa”) who still frequent the area.

They decide to make it a farm that offers its guests the traditional dishes of South Tyrol, reinterpreted with what the generous nature of the Morainic Hills offer.


Passion, simplicity and profesionalism

The staff of the restaurant consists of the Masoner Family to which they join their historic collaborators.

Eva is the chef, she elaborates and realizes the dishes that delight the guests. Together with Francesca, an indispensable element, they are the beating heart of the kitchen. Stephan, he’s the meat guy, from the selection of the best cuts to the fine cooking.  Sonia, Oksana and Lucrezia give life to the room cheering the customers with their brightness.

Finally, the children Stephanie, Simone and Alex and grandparents Siegfried and Waltraut are always available to help to offer the best possible experience to guests.


A unique place and attention to detail

The restaurant Corte Civa is located in Volta Mantovana, in the Morainic Hills not far from Garda Lake, surrounded by villages rich in history and culture. The naturals reserves and the Mincio Park that crosses the hilly territory offer the visitor a particularly complete location. For those who are in the area is recommended a visit to Palazzo Gonzaga in Volta Mantovana, with its frescoed rooms and its magnificent Italian gardens.

A few kilometers away is Castellaro Lagusello and Borghetto sul Mincio, two of the “most beautiful villages in Italy”. But you don’t have to move from Corte Civa to find some quiet. For those who, at the end of the meal, decide to relax and take a walk, there is the sweetness and pleasantness of the surrounding environment to welcome him, the same that fascinated Stephan and Eva the first time they arrived in the hills of Volta Mantovana.
