About Nigel and Wendy Griffiths

Nigel and Wendy live in Kent where they run a holiday cottage business They both grew up in Kent but have a great affinity with Lake Garda and Italy.

Nigel and Wendy Griffiths purchased this villa in 2007

Why Nigel and Wendy Griffiths chose Salo

We like to travel and always said we would not return to the same place twice. After visiting lake Garda 5 years in a row we felt there must be a connection and when the opportunity arose we purchased this beautiful villa, with a view to enjoying it for our own holidays and future retirement. We did a number of trips to find the right location and right property, we wanted something that offered rustic charm, stunning lake views around Salo. Having stayed on all sides of the Lake Salo is our favourite town, as it is not just a holiday destination, so shops bars and restaurants are open all year.

What makes this villa unique

Fantastic views. Peaceful location at the end of a no through road with a forest behind it . Salo is probably the nicest town on the lake and is not just for tourists. There is so much to do on Lake Garda, from water sports to golf or site seeing, Skiing for a day or two in winter is a nice perk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a beautiful villa and they really have thought of everything. The Villa has been finished to a very high standard and whatever one of the four bedrooms you end up staying in you wont be disappointed (felt more like staying in a luxury hotel!). I can imagine that this would be great for families, and that kids would love it, however we were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves and sitting on the outdoor patio looking out over the amazing Vista of Lake Garda with a bottle (or two) of Bardolini (the local red) made for an unforgettable experience - highly recommended!

Traumblick auf den Gardasee

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt sehr schön am Hang. Es ist ruhig.

Die Zimmer sind geräumig und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Enzo, der "Hauskeeper" ist sehr kunden- und serviceorientiert. In der Übergangszeit empfiehlt es sich, ein paar Decken mitzubringen. Die Lebensmittelversorgung vor Ort muß geplant werden, denn das nächste Geschäft ist ca. 7km entfernt.

Der Aufenthalt vor Ort ist ein Traum. Wir werden wieder kommen.

Beautiful views over Salo

  • 5 of 5

Salo is a beautiful town on Lake Garda with lovely shops, restaurants and ice cream parlours! We spent a week at the villa, 5 adults and 1 child. There was plenty of room for us all to live comfortably. The villa has stunning views over Lake Garda and is in a safe residential area of individual villas. The villa has everything you need for Al fresco dining with a good choice of excellent supermarkets near by. The management company are very helpful should you need them. You do need a car but getting around Lake Garda is easy and picturesque and a trip to Verona is not to be missed! We all really enjoyed our time there.

Wonderful views and lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the villa, with stunning views morning and night, a little off the beaten path but that suited us fine. We had some items bought for us before we arrived so we didnt have to panic about getting last minute supplies. The overall equipment and facilities are excellent, however we were a little disappointed that the jacuzzi bath, steam shower and 2 of the shower doors were broken. We reported them and they had been broken for quite some time apparently. This wasn't made clear before we arrived. Overall this didnt stop us from having a wonderful time though, guess this is normal wear and tear on such a popular villa.

It was fairly good for visiting all the local sights and fairly straight forward to find although we used a combination of the sat nav and the directions given to be sure.

The pool was used most days as we were very lucky with the weather but the water was a little cold at the end of the season (September) so not for any of you who expect super warm tropical water.

The owners and the caretakers were available at the drop of a hat and this was greatly appreciated.

Beautiful Villa and surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful Villa with spectacular views.

Only a couple of small negatives to get out of the way. The Jacuzzi bath and steam shower didn't work as advertised. I also couldn't find the tumble dryer as mentioned in the villa instructions.

The owners (Nigel and Wendy) were very useful and friendly leading up to and after the stay. The management company were fantastic, they were very accommodating, friendly and recommended some good places to visit.

The views are awe inspiring, I couldn't have wanted a better location. It's out of the way of the main tourists but close enough to do everything (shopping, eat dinner, visit major attractions).

The villa was very clean on arrival and has everything you need. I particularly like the swimming pool, showers and balcony. The whole place is fitted out with lovely things, cool windows, nice tables, table tennis, comfortable beds etc. The light switches didn't seem to be set up in a logical way...a bit odd.

The kitchen is is equipped with the basics, so easy to cook every night. I'm a keen cook, so it was a little Under equipped for mwe, however that is just personal preference and not a negative reflection of the villa.

I would definitely come back to this villa. I had the most enjoyable time.

Owner's Response: Sarah Many thanks for your lovely review of our property. We are glad that you all enjoyed the villa, its private pool and stunning views. Apologies about the Spa bath and tumble dryer, our managers encountered maintenance issues with both during the season and getting spares at short notice was an issue.

Modern Villa with great views of Lake Garda

  • 5 of 5

Two families of 4 shared this villa for a week and loved it. The bedrooms were big and comfortable and the upstairs area was great for entertaining. We especially loved hanging at the pool and enjoying the view. The villa was in a great location allowing us to explore different towns and villages during our stay. The drive to Riva del Garda was particularly spectacular as was our day on the lake with a rental boat. The property managers, Roy and Mari-lyn were very helpful and responsive to any questions we had.

Superb villa with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Belevedere in May 2014. The villa is on an exclusive estate of similar villas, it is not overlooked at all so we we enjoyed the tranquillity and privacy. Everything in the villa was very clean, the fixtures and decor is of a very high standard, beautiful tiles in every bathroom and marble and open timbers, I particularly liked being able to see the internal timbers of the roof.

The view is amazing, the villa has bedrooms downstairs so from the lounge, dining room and kitchen you have stunning views of the lake, we ate on the covered kitchen terrace all the time which has great views day and night. I loved just looking out at the view and how it changes depending on the time of day and the weather. I would have happily spent all day just looking out.

The pool is not heated but we swam every day, it took a little time to get in but once in it was lovely and it is a good size so we could swim some lengths. The pool has lights so you can swim at night.

We hired a boat for the day from Rappy drive which we would highly recommend, great way to see all the villages on the lake. I felt like James Bond!

In summary. A very spacious villa with 4 large bedrooms, excellent amenities and facilities and a stunning view across the lake and very private. Will definitely return and recommend to others.

Lake Garda is one of the most beautiful and picturesque areas of northern Italy. Create by glacial erosion it stretches from the mountains in its northern tip to the flat plains in the south. It provides an ideal location for a holiday. The gleaming pure fresh water of the lake combined with the unique Italian culture and architecture provide something for every member of the family.

Every town around the lake has its own unique history, geography and feel, a local wine or olive oil here is one that has been grown and pressed within the village, not just one grown around the lake The Italians are passionate about family, love, life and food and their culture providing a unique and friendly atmosphere wherever you go.

There is so much to do around lake Garda, two weeks will simply not be enough time. Exploring all the villages and restaurants takes time, you cannot rush a meal or even morning coffee here, when you are sat beside the glistening lake, watching the locals promenade past and enjoying the banter in the worlds most beautiful language, you just have to take your time and enjoy it.

For the more active hiring a boat for the day is a fun way to explore and a great way to get to our favourite restaurant 'Da Umberto in Brenzone', pull up in to the harbour in your hire boat, enjoy a fine meal in this family run restaurant, (Grandma's Lazagne is to die for!) and the patron and waiters are very friendly. Other water sports available locally is wake boarding with Yoshi (Coach to Italian Champions), wind surfing or sailing or you can catch a ferry to other towns on the lake. Once you swim in the clear fresh water of the lake you will never want to go on a salty sea beach holiday again.

Around Lake Garda are many wineries, lemon and olive groves all well worth exploring. To the south is the city of Verona where you can get tickets to the opera in the Roman arena in summer. Brescia is worth a visit for its shops and Roman ruins and a day trip to Venice by train from Descenzano should not be missed.

Our villa is located on the hillside overlooking the beautiful town of Salo, a beautiful town right on the lake, the lake front is full of cafes and Gelaterias where you can while away the day. It also has a cobbled high street, full of individual boutiques (a shopping paradise for the ladies) and many fine restaurants.

Just along the coast road to the North you come to Gardone Riviera where Winston Churchill took his holidays in the Grand.

To the South is Descenzano with its lively night life and then the town of Sirmione. Built on an island at the Southern end of the lake, cars are not allowed so you walk in to the town across the draw bridge of the castle. The cobbled streets are full of tourists enjoying the shops and the best ice cream parlours anywhere. At the end of the town are the ruins of one of the largest Roman villas in Italy. When you stand on the ruins looking up the lake to the mountains you can see why Catullo built his villa there.

The local produce markets move from town to town on different days providing fresh produce and local wares.

The lake has many fine golf courses, garda golf down the road is home to Italy's new wonder boy Manasero, or Bogliaco Golf offers 9 or 18 holes with great lake views.

If you are visiting in winter then in under 2 hours you can be in Madonna Di Campiglio for a days skiing and there cant be to many places you can wake board one day, ski the next and play golf the next.
