The place to be

  • 5 of 5

PERFECT We stayed at this property at the end of March 2016 with a family with 3 children.

It was perfect - great location, great house - directly at the lake

Very friendly help from the owners pre booking and also during our stay.

(to the older comments - the bathrooms are now brand new and very nice)

We will definitely come back

Thanks for a great holiday

a week on west side of Lake Garda

  • 5 of 5

we four of us including a dog and a 82 yrs old stayed in this wonderful located house with direct access of the lake. A big plus! it is hard to find a house right on the lake. the house is bigger than you see from the pictures, very functional and clean. It is very near to a car/passengers ferry port to visit other part of Garda. We were there in August and the weather was very warm. Even though the property is next to the road, we didn't hear noise from our bedrooms.

The only wish I have is if there were air conditioning in bedrooms and insect screen over the windows as there were many aggressive tiny mosquitoes in the garden. Do bring mosquito repellant with you. We did babacue in the garden and swim from our jumping board. It was a beautiful place to stay and we did enjoy a lot. We went to the nearby 1 Michelin star restaurant Lido 84 which was excellent, a must if you stay in this house. Thank you and I would highly recommend this house to everyone.

My husband and I rented this lovely house for one week in June 2015. The house itself sits in large gardens with 3 other properties. The house is immaculate and very clean and is fully stocked with everything you will need for a comfortable vacation. The bed (we only used one) was very comfortable and the bathrooms are very new and modern.

The house is situated about a 20minute walk to Toscolano Maderno where there are some shops, cafes and restaurants, if you don't want to walk then the house owner, Giovanna, has provided bicycles for your use. Within a 5 minute walk of the house is a great Pizzeria which also does a takeout service and for something a little more special, we went to Hotel Bella Riva (also 5 minutes walk from the house) and had a fantastic meal on their terrace overlooking the lake.

Giovanna was a great help throughout our stay, anything we needed she was only a phone call away or in our case text.

If there is only one downside to this property it has to be the noise from the road, however, getting away from the road anywhere around the lake would be very difficult as the road hugs the lake and towns.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and a huge thank you to Giovanna for all her help.

Regards Jane and Tony Varga

  • 5 of 5

We spent an unforgettable week at Toscolano Maderno in Giovanna's home. Beautiful villa where you can find everything you can think of - clean spacious rooms, garden, private beach, boat, even a bicycle! Stunning view of the lake and mountains! Villa is conviniently located within driving distance from Brescia, Sirmione, Verona, Bergamo.But if you don't have a car, a bus or ferry is close by. Giovanna, the owner, is always ready to help and advise on places of attraction. I dream to go back and already recommended villa to my friends.

The house is located in the small village of Fasano del Garda near Maderno (walking distance) where you can find shops, supermarket, pharmacy, bank and a wonderful romanic church of the 12 century.

We are not far from Gardone Riviera where you can vsit the Heller Botanical Garden or the famous Vittoriale house of the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio. In the Vittoriale open air amphiteater you can assist to concert, operetta, drama during all summer. Visit the website ( for more information.

From Maderno you can board a boat (even with the car) and cross the lake to go to Gardaland (amusement park for children) or visit the different villages on the coast.

Not far is Verona where during summer time you can assist to one of the most extraordinary opera or concert performances ( in the world.

There are also beautiful walk to do in the nearby mountains.

Brescia is only 40 minutes by car and there you can visit the ancien cathedral or the roman forum or the phantastic Santa Gulia Museum complex on the UNESCO World Heritage List (

Activities: swimming, windsurf, sailing, fishing, climbing, tennis and many others

Here you can play golf all the year around.

Golf Bogliaco ( was created in 1912 and is 7 km away from us, 10 minutes by car.

Situated close to the hills on the western side of lake Garda, Golf Bogliaco lies in a basin at an altitude of 100 metres, covered with oleander, laurel, cypresses, olive trees and other plants typical of Mediterranean vegetation. The raised position gives a splendid view over almost the full length of the lake and the mountains which surround it. The decidedly mild climate offers the possibility of playing all year round.

Gardagolf ( is 20 km away from us, 20 minutes by car.

Experts consider Gardagolf one of the best golf courses built over the past 10 years. It stretches over an area of 110 hectares and was designed by British golfing architects. The Garda Golf Country Club is a 27-hole golf course which spreads between the Rocca di Manerba, the Castle of Soiano and the Valtenesi hills, and offers a breathtakingly beautiful panorama.

The Arzaga Golf ( is located 24 km away from us, 30 minutes by car.

One 18 holes championship course designed by Jack Nicklaus II and one 9 holes course designed by Gary Player. Both courses of this Golf club respect all USGA standards. The 9 hole course reflects the classical Scottish tradition. Its first hole is considered one of the most spectacular European ones because of the spectacular view on the Drugolo Castle at the horizon. The 18 hole course, par 72 instead, designed by Jack Nicklaus II features trees, deep bunkers and 5 artificial lakes used for the irrigation.
