Everything was perfect. Elana communicated with us before arrival. It turned out to be convenient for Elana's sister, Ida and Ida's husband, Paulo to pick us up at the train station and show us around the apartment and the town. The apartment is comfortable, immaculate and well appointed. We were here 11 days and enjoyed every single moment of the apartment, Desenzano and Lake Garda. It is a perfect location to feel a part of the community. Ferry service to other communities on the Lake is convenient and restaurants and shopping in Desenzano is the best of anyplace on Lake Garda. We could not have been happier with our choice. Thank you Elana, Ida and Paulo. We recommend Carpe Diem without reservation!
