Desenzano is the biggest town on Lake Garda, and it is an all year round town and not just a holiday resort; there are lots of things to do and to see, like, for example, a lively weekly market (on Tuesday), a castle, a Roman villa, an interesting antique market (1st Sunday of the month), lots of shops, bars, and restaurants. There are several theme and water parks nearby (gardaland, movieland, giardino di Sigurtà botanical garden, …), South Garda Karting (just a 10 minute drive), spas (terme di Sirmione, Colà,…)and shopping centers. You can reach Verona by train in 30 minutes, Milan in one hour and Venice in one hour and a half. The flat is in a perfect location: a few steps from the lake, a 10 minute walk from the railway station and 5 minutes away from the ferry docking area where you can catch a ferry and tour the lake; or you can just pick up a bike and ride to Sirmione or nearby villages and beaches. If you’re travelling with children lakeside, just a few steps from the flat, there’s a children playground and the Fraglia Vela Regatta Club, your kids (age 6 to 17) can learn how to sail there.

About elena

My daughters and I have been - and still are - home rental guests. so when I decided to become a home rental owner, I've recollected my experience as a guest and tried to equip my apartment with everything we ourselves had needed or just wished we had found in our vacation home.

Spacious, light-filled apartment ideally located.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and two young children had a lovely week in Elena's comfortable, light-filled apartment. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and ideally located for enjoying the old town and lakeside playground and walks.

Elena provided a very warm welcome and helped us settle in with recommendations for restaurants and shopping. She lives in the same building so any questions we had were quickly addressed. Internet was something of a challenge as the signal was not strong and at times cut out. But Elena tried to resolve the problem and suggested nearby cafes where we could access wifi.

Elena provided a baby crib and the apartment had a wonderful selection of children's toys and books which our little ones thoroughly enjoyed!

Thank you to Elena for making our stay so pleasant! I am happy to recommend this apartment for anyone, but especially families visiting Desenzano.

Delightful Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is ideally located, 20m from the lake, and within 5 minutes gentle stroll of an abundance of bars, restaurants, shops, and also the boat to Sirmione. It's light, clean, spacious, and comes with everything you might need - there's even secure parking. Perfect if you want to stay in Desenzano.

wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your apartment which is charming, clean and spacious. The apartment is very central and there was some noise from the street early morning, but it's the perfect position for touring the Lakes and surrounding area. We rented a car to get around so the secure parking was also a bonus. Very good communication with owner and we would highly recommend this apartment.

Lovely flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was roomy, and beautifully decorated, and the location is great, just a few steps from the lake and from the shops and restaurants of Desenzano. Elena, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. We would absolutely recommend the place!

Clean, sunny and very welcoming and spacious

  • 4 of 5

Elena was a wonderful host and saw to our every need, even the ones she was not responsible for.

The apartment was clean, well equipped and very spacious. Home away from home and we will definitely recommend it to friends.

I believe Elena and the other owners are trying to close down the pub down stairs. This will be very good as this was the only negative about the apartment - very noisy till the early morning hours.

Overall we considered it great value for money and have already discussed a future stay with Elena.

Great apartment with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is really beautiful and has everything you need.

Elena is so nice and really thought of every little detail that a family could use, from toys for the kids to scissors, a picnic basket, lots of kitchen ware, coffee, sugar, many spices and cooking oils and bathroom essentials.

When we arrived there was a basket full of pasta, sauce, bread, nutella and even chocolate milk powder for the kids.

The apartment is right across from the lake and at the very beginning of the central pedestrian area where there are many restaurants and shops. From the apartment you can get on the highway really quickly, and Desenzano's location is a good base for touring Lake Garda.

The only annoyances we had in the apartment were the noises from youth outside at night, they were walking past our window until late at night and were pretty noisy, also parking their motorcycles close by. In addition, the municipal cleaning crew start very early and also make noise, so if you are a light sleeper it could wake you up.

Other than that - it really is a perfect place to stay for a family, and we would definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: it's always a pleasure hosting such sweet and considerate families. I'm glad you had a good time in Desenzano and enjoyed your holiday. Street noise, I agree, can be rather annoying. we live in a touristic town and we rely on other people's good manners (unfortunately sometimes not so good). I really hope to host you again. :-) Elena
