We built this beautiful villa while living in San Francisco, as our future retirement home and family compound. We celebrate many holidays, vacations and special birthdays here with family and friends. Currently living in The Hague we are now able to enjoy this special place more often.

Ginny Mees purchased this villa in 2006

When we first stood on this property and looked at the magnificent views, there was just a mound of dirt. After 2 years of building the home, and now many years of enjoying the fruits of our labors, we never tire of sitting on our pool deck with a nice glass of excellent wine, and taking in the breath-taking views.

The views are hard to find in a stand alone villa at the north end of Garda Lake. There are many apartments, but land is at a premium due to the majestic mountains surrounding the northend. We have also noticed that all the other villas for sale were quite old and musty smelling, so we opted to build a new home with all the modern conveniences.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a four week vacation staying at Villa Teggiole in Italy. We travel quite often, and this was the most amazing and by far the greatest vacation we have ever taken. The house has the most amazing view and is looking over the mountains and lake. It is surrounded by olive groves and grape orchards. It over looks about five small Italian towns and we heard a chorus of each town's bell tower ringing each day. It was magical! The surrounding mountains were awesome to explore and each day was a new adventure. The lake is dotted with quaint, flower filled medieval towns each with their own castle. The high mountain meadows are great to hike in and are beautiful. Staying at Villa Teggiole is definitely the way to go because you come home to a relaxing home, sit on the porch with your wine and cheese and talk about the daily adventure. Then its about a 6 min. drive back to town to one of the many piazzas for a late dinner. Staying at the house made us feel like we were more enmeshed into the Italian culture and gave us the opportunity to lounge, cook, or just sit and look at the amazing view (which is in every direction). I would HIGHLY recommend staying here and can't wait to go back. It will be the best vacation you ever take!!!

The view is just as great as in the photos!

  • 5 of 5
Surprisingly enough the house actually felt larger than was the impression in the photos. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather. The blue skies and warm swimming pool were excellent. The pool isn't large enough to swim laps in but it certainly is large enough to lounge in with a cold glass of white wine!

As a group of biking buffs we spent 5 days climbing various hills in the area and ending each day with a pretty stiff climb back up to home base. An excellent base location. The quality was excellent and everything was as advertised. The internet connection was also excellent. It is clear that the owners are very proud of their home and try to maintain the highest standards. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would recommend to anyone as we found nothing to fault. The location can certainly comfortably house a group of 10 or more people.

Delightful house, poor customer care.

  • 3 of 5
House in fabulous position though start of our holiday marred by caretaker not being there to let us into the house. After a long tiring trip, this was disconcerting. We had to phone the owner in the Netherlands to gain access.

Once we got into the house, all was as advertised - as attractive as the photos indicate, as fully equipped as the description of amenities indicate. For most of our week we had a delightful time enjoying the villa and it's surroundings. Unfortunately,
the end of the holiday was spoilt by the owner forgetting that we had booked an extra night, and with two hours notice, moving us into very basic, student style apartments for our last night to allow the next booking to move in. Even once it was shown that this was her error, not ours, this was very disruptive as our party were in various parts of Riva and we were forced to cut short our special plans for our last full day and evening. An upsetting way to end our time at the villa we had enjoyed so much. Make sure you keep all your emails, and confirm your plans one extra time in advance.

Owner's Response: This above review is not an accurate assessment of the circumstances for this rental. The renters failed to mention several pertinent points in their review.
First of all, in all of our written arrival instructions for Villa Teggiole, it clearly states for the renter to contact our caretaker with the specific time of arrival, which unfortunately the Owens party did not do. When upon arrival there was no one to meet them, they called me (not the caretaker) and I contacted her. She immediately went to the villa to greet the guests. This was a completely preventable situation, and would have avoided their "marred holiday beginning", had they just notified her the time window for their arrival. As it was, she waited from 4pm-5pm, before I told her to go home. Most of our guests arrive at 4pm, when the house is available for check-in.
Secondly, when this reservation was initially made, the renters booked a 7 night (our traditional Sat-Sat) reservation. They signed a rental agreement and paid the deposit for this as stated in the agreement. This reservation was more complicated than normal because they requested (and I accommodated) 2/3 of the payment coming from one party in the USA, and 1/3 from the UK. This was the case on both the initial deposit and the remaining balance payment 90 days prior to their arrival.
A few weeks after the initial booking, I received an email from them asking if the Saturday night was also available. I said it was. Via email they indicated that they wanted to stay the 8th night. I failed (completely my mistake) to send a modified rental agreement, and the renters NEVER PAID for the 8th night. In fact when they purchased the CSA property protection insurance 90 days prior to arrival, per the terms of our agreement, the policy stated 7 nights Sat-Sat coverage.
In seven years of managing our rental, I have never had a double-booking. Given the fact our incoming guests had actually paid for Saturday night, and the Owens party had NOT, we booked AND PAID FOR 3 apartments (2 x 2 bedroom apartments and 1 x 1 bedroom apartment) across from the Marina between Riva and Torbole. We chose a clean, nice accommodation and we paid for it, so that The Owens party would be compensated for their inconvenience.
Lastly and more importantly, our intent and our actions reflected a level of service that most landlords would not offer. It is unfortunate that a poor review is the thanks we receive for our effort. Paul and Ginny Mees

Just love it!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Paul & Ginny,

This was the 2nd time I spent my spring holiday here and I loved any minute so far! Lake Garda is the perfect place to get my first sunshine of the year. It really nice that the house is up the mountain and the terrace is situated that there is no wind, this makes it perfect for sun tanning and I just love having a beer in the sun! I really enjoyed taking the boot across the lake and enjoying a pizza in one the town there. To be honest...I love having a pizza in every town around Lake Garda haha.
But most of all I miss the sitting on the terrace and looking at the view, especially in the evening when you see all the lights down in the valley. For me it’s really the most relaxing of my holiday!

Thank you!!!

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to book this beautiful house for our kids' spring vacation. The house overlooks the gorgeous Lago di Garda and is a great location for exploring the region. In our week, we went skiing in the Dolomites at the Paganella ski area (1 hour, very modern facilities) and at the local Monte Baldo ski area (mostly tow lifts, but less expensive and still very nice skiing). As well, we visited Verona (1 hour), Venice (2 hours) and Rovereto. We mostly had delicious lunches out everywhere we went and dinner at the house since high quality ingredients are readily available and the house kitchen is incredibly well equipped. The house itself is clean and well maintained and sleeps 10 in comfortable beds, the bathrooms are very nice and there are a selection of amusements available (DVDs, CDs, board games, books, Jeu de boules, etc.) The swimming pool looked nice, although it wasn't really the season for it in Feb. Sliced cured meats (carne de salade) are the regional specialty and great local wines, cheeses, vinegar and olives are plentiful. There is a truly excellent restaurant within walking distance (Acetaia). Even though we weren't there in high season, there was plenty to explore and enjoy and we loved it.
Overall I give the house and location top marks and recommend it highly.

This popular lake is the largest lake in Italy. It has been called the Mediterranean of the north, due to the mild climate, food and amazing wines from the area. Riva is an upscale village on the lake offering fabulous shopping, ristorantes, a large lakeside piazza, and ferry service to the other lakeside villages. Varone Falls is close to the home with an amazing waterfall, and numerous castles in nearby Malcesine, Arco and Sirmione. Torbole next to Riva has the most popular beach on the lake, as well as windsurfing lessons and camps. Next to the River Sarca is a bike path which runs from Lago Di Garda, inland to Trento. During the winter there are numerous skiing facilities, and other winter activities. Don't miss the ristorante 'Pie Del Castello' which is walking distance from our home in the village of Cologna, and serves the local specialty, carne salada. Our favorite palce to dine is also walking distance, and offers the same fabulous views, since they are right below our home: Agritur Acetaie, simply fabulous food and wines. Ask for Alessandra as her English is perfect. They also provide tours of the balsamic making plant there.

Other Activities: wine-tasting
