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.

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.'

'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....

Apt 715 - a delightful hideaway

We received a large amount of infromation from the owner before our arrival and this was greatly appreciated. We were not disappointed. Apt 715 was ideally located. Beautiful surroundings, lovely walk to Garda along the sea wall, amazing swimming pool up the hill. Above all it was quiet! Ali was extremely helpful. We found it an excellent base for touring the area (including Venice). Excursions to lakeside towns were a delight.

Grosser Reinfall

Leider entsprach das Appartment nicht unseren erwartungen. Am Anreisetag war es noch vermietet toll nach 12 Stunden Fahrt und 2 Kindern. Nach langen Disskussionen konnten wir für eine Nacht woanders schlafen.Das Appartment ist sehr einfach nicht mal Vorhänge,die Möbel alt und muffig,die Matratzen passen nicht mal in den Bettkasten eine Zumutung alles provisorisch und alt. Das Geschirr war so verdreckt das wir uns selber Kaffeebecher gekauft haben. Das Appartment ist nicht zu empfehlen.
Owner's Response: Bezug nehmend auf das Schreiben vom 10/8/2008 möchte ich darauf hinweisen, dass der Gast einen Tag vor der Buchung angekommen ist. Deshalb war die Wohnung noch vermietet und noch nichht sauber.
Dieses jahr ist die Küche völlig erneuert und die Wohnung ganz neu gestrichen und hat vorhäaege.


This guest arrived the day before expected, so of course the apartment was not ready. The kitchen was totally refurbished this winter.
