APARTMENT 717

Garda Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Three apartments in the same condominium plus extra accommodation for groups

We let apartments in lovely grounds overlooking this spectacular lake. They are a few minutes walk from the lakeside, a few more from the charming town. The condominium has a wonderful swimming-pool, with a toddler pool and restaurant and a magnificent view. It is surrounded by lovely grounds rich in mature trees, and offers safe access to the lakeside via an underpass under the road. Where we join the lake is the best beach on the lake (stony), and the swimming is wonderful. Public transport and road links are very good and trips can easily be made to Gardaland,Verona,Venice,Milan,Mantova etc. Steamer services take you to all the other little towns around the lake, and there are all types of walks, from strolling along the promenade, to climbing in the nearby mountains (helped by a cable car). The town, with its pedestrianised shopping area of old and narrow lanes, has cafe's, bars and restaurants to suit every budget. Other apartments can be taken along with apt 510 for larger groups.

General information:: We feel very lucky to have discovered these apartments, and to own one. The view from the balconies, the grounds, the walks of all kinds, the mountain scenery, the changing appearance of the lake, the shoreline, the cafe's and restaurants on the promenade, the proximity of wonderful historic cities - it is all so beautiful! There are various facilities and theme parks to entertain the children and the climate is excellent. The condominium can easily be reached by bus from Verona airport, while there are cheap flights to Verona, Bergamo, Venice and Milan (in order of closeness). Hire a car or use train and bus or we can arrange for our friendly taxi-driver to meet you. Or drive down. Finally, if, like me, you worry about the effect of flying on our environment, there is a very pleasant train route, at least from the south of England. Take the Eurostar to Paris Nord, cross to Gare de Bercy, and take the night train to Verona arriving 7.25am. For other train routes, please contact us.

Before you leave this page:: We haven't mentioned the open-air opera in the Arena in Verona. It's on in July and August, it's easy to get tickets, and there are buses to take you there from outside our gate.

Nor have we mentioned Signora Maria Luisa, our English-speaking colleague and housekeeper of the condominium. She looks after our guests beautifully and sorts out any problems. She leaves a basic welcome pack for new arrivals, and basic cooking necessities are also left.

Warning: There is a longish slope and 35 steps up to the pool, but you can also reach it by car.

See also property number 4054 for a one-bedroom apartment for a couple in Bardolino, a little further south on Lake Garda.

Letters from guests:: 'We had a wonderful time - the apartment was fabulous and the whole area is just perfect for a family holiday. After a good scout round the little towns and villages around the lake, we were still in no doubt at all that we loved Garda best. We enjoyed the privacy, beautiful grounds and pool, and Maria Luisa and Ali were most helpful and welcoming. Many, many thanks for all your assistance, your directions were excellent. Thanks for making our holiday arrangements so carefree.'

'I want to compliment you on the professionalism of the whole operation. The briefing was excellent and the way the whole set-up is organised is wonderful. We were delighted with the apartment - the location and the facilities, and Maria was very nice and helpful...'

'Italy and Lake Garda were a wonderful experience for my son and me. Hopefully we will get to visit again as the memories we have are wonderful and I know there is a lot more to explore.'

More Details

Details for Apartment 717 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 6, 1 Bathroom, 1 Half Bathrooms

This apartment consists of a living-room with two adjoining foldaway single beds, which can be made up as a double, and a double sofa-bed; a bedroom with 2 single beds, one fixed, one an unfolding seat; a bathroom attached to the living-room and a WC and basin attached to the bedroom; a brand new kitchen (2007), and a south-facing balcony. So, unlike unit 510, the assumption is that the children sleep in the bedroom and the parents in the living-room, which has advantages if the children go to bed first. It is on the third floor (there is a lift) and has a wonderful view of mature trees and the lake. This condo boasts a 'solarium' - a bit of flat roof - with spectacular views and a few recliners and sunshades.
Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair accessible
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Comments from Owner Guestbook

'We had a fabulous time in Garda. Many thanks for your helpfulness and efficiency in making our holiday as hassle-free as possible. We have really fallen in love with the area and its people and would like to provisionally book for next year...'
'Thank you for the wonderful holiday. The apartment was clean, spacious and well-equipped, not to mention how helpful and friendly Maria Luisa was. This was our first visit to Italy - but definitely not the last! - and the first time we have booked over the internet. I was apprehensive about it but the help I received from you prior to leaving eased all doubts.'
'Thanks once again - I am sure we shall return.'
'We were very pleased with the apartment and Maria was very helpful. The weather was a little wet but we still managed to visit Monte Baldo, Verona and Venice, and had a really good day in Gardaland.'
'Your instructions, tips etc were spot on and taxi to & from airport went smoothly. We can see why you love it.'

And lots more....

Lovely apartment, beautiful area

  • 4 of 5
We arrived to a clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment set in lovely gardens away from the road.
Pool was great with fantastic views across the lake. A short walk along the edge of the lake into the town where there are plenty of restaurants and shops.
We hired a car and got to see a lot of the little towns and villages around the lake, would recommend trip up to the top of monte Baldo on the cable car, stunning views.
Tessa's information pack was very helpful and the caretakers Maria and Ali were very friendly and always around if needed.
Would thoroughly recommend this apartment we will definitely be back.

One of our favourite places in the world!

  • 5 of 5
This particular area of lake Garda is one of our favourite places to be in the world and has such amazing views, places to visit, wine and locals.

The complex in which apartment 717 is situated really is excellent - the facilities are perfect for a family and the apartment itself provides everything you need to use as a base for the perfect surroundings that the surrounding area provides. Wifi is quick enough and helps to keep in touch with the rest of the world while they're not enjoying Italy!

The pool area is amazing and you could easily sit here for the entire duration of any stay and soak up the sun (and wine!). The 'theme nights' like bbq add a little extra something as well.

If you do choose to venture out, the area itself is amazing, with some great restaurants and lovely scenery. There is plenty within walking distance to cater for pretty much everything you'd want, but with a car, you can also get a bit further afield. Gardaland is within very easy travelling distance, for example, and is a great day out for the kids.

We have already been back since our initial stay and will be back again in the future.

The condo is on the edge of the historic little town of Garda,which is on the south-east shore of the lake at its widest part, in a sheltered bay. The location is fantastic, with 3-minute access to the lakeside via our private underpass, where you find a promenade into town on your left (7 mins), a cafe/bar 150 metres along to the right, and the beach in the photo stretching round the bay to your right. There are walks along the lakeside in both directions, and also up into the hills around. We always feel sorry for the visitors we see trailing down the roads to the lake from the hotels a bit further inland. Garda offers easy access to Verona, Venice , Mantua, Milan and - further away - Bologna.

Easy-jet and BA fly from Gatwick to Verona.

Notes:
IMPORTANT: The air-conditioning is an old-fashioned air-cooling system, and not the most effective in the world! It does not extend well into the bedroom, where there is a ceiling-fan which we have always found quite adequate. Bathroom, bedroom and kitchen linen is an extra, provided by the condominium if you want it for 15 euros. Of the above facilities, the swimming-pool, washing-machine, swing(s), cots and high-chairs are communal. There is a ramp and lift for wheel-chair access, and I am assured the doors are wide enough. As well as the wonderful swimmimg-pool we share with another complex, there is a spectacular new Leisure Centre with pools in Garda which you can reach using the free town shuttle bus.
