Perfecto !! great location, well equipped apartment
On arrival Giovanna greeted us like old friends. The apartment is superb, everything you will need for your stay.
The location is perfect, a 10 minute walk from both the station and lake front. The weather was extremely hot during our stay, the airconditioning was needed, especially at night.
The pool is clean, can be used anytime of the day and is for exclusive use of the residents, it did not get busy at all.
Desenzano was a great base for the lake, we did so much it was just superb.
Lots of information and recommendations by Giovanna she was always on hand to advise, we will definetly book again.
Grazie tantissimo che ci è piaciuto molto 🇮🇹🇬🇧❤️💚💙
Thank you for your kidness
We spent 2 weeks in July in Giovanna’s lovely apartment and had a wonderful stay
there. Upon our arrival Giovanna greeted us warmly as if we were family or old
She made us feel immediately welcome and at home and took the time to show us all
the features of the apartment and pool area, as well as giving us lots of useful tips on
places to go and things to do.
She also left us a welcome pack and the Prosecco was a lovely touch, though the kids
were probably more excited by the Nutella!
As others have said, the apartment is bigger than the pictures indicate and is
spotlessly clean and very well equipped (lovely soft bath towels, beach towels, bed
linen etc.) as well as kitchen basics like salt, pepper, coffee and olive oil.
We got regular updates on WhatsApp from Giovanna, and she was on call if needed,
and was genuinely interested in how our holiday was going.
The pool is large, clean and attended by a lifeguard. It is a mainly residential
complex, so it’s very quiet in the mornings, a little busier in the afternoon and again
at weekends. The sun loungers are allocated to each apartment so you can come and
go as you please.
There is a decent sized kitchen for cooking with all the utensils you’d need. The main
terrace is perfect for eating, as it never gets the sun directly but is warm and pleasant
with a view to the lake and mountains. A second terrace overlooks the pool and is
nice to sit on in the evenings when the sun goes down. The beds are very
comfortable, and the main bathroom is large with a good shower.
The area itself is lovely and quiet – a 10 min walk to train station, 10 min to a nice
park with a great playground for kids & a café, 15 mins (downhill) into Desenzano.
The town itself is fabulous with lots of shops and restaurants, a market on Tuesday, and White Night on Wednesday nights, when shops open
late and there is live music in the square and a lively buzz in the town.
There are a few nice pebbly beaches where you can hire loungers and pedal boats to
go out on the lake. It has a long boardwalk all along the shore for anybody who likes
to run or walk – especially early in the morning when it is quiet and breezy.
The other towns around the lake are easily accessible by ferry and neighbouring
Sirmione is only a 20 minute journey away. Venice was well worth a 90 min train trip.
Overall it was a wonderful place to visit and Giovanna’s warmth and friendliness
makes it a really great place to stay
I like your family, very much
Giovanna, the apartment and the pool!
From we first contacted Giovanna it was all very easy. We arrived at her apartment mid July for a week and she was there to meet us. She greeted us like old friends and gave us plenty of information about the local area. She also left a welcome pack to get us started.
The apartment is fantastic. It has a large kitchen-diner living area, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. It also has 3 balconies, 1 with a great view of the lake and the other 2 look over the swimming pool. The swimming pool is brilliant. About one third of the main pool is 1M deep which worked really well for my 2 girls, I think the pool was a highlight for them. A big plus was having a lifeguard there all day.
Desenzano is about a 15 minute walk and the train station is about 5 minutes. Venice and Verona are definitely worth a visit.
Our week in Giovanna's was a dream as was meeting her, I hope our paths cross again! Ciao
Lovely apartment with a great pool near Lake Garda
This is a very nice and well equipped apartment in a quiet area about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Desenzano- everything you could possibly need is provided. The pool is fabulous- large and never hugely busy even at the height of the season- two very comfortable sun loungers and two reclining chairs and a really effective sunshade are provided and have their own place by the pool. There are more in the garage.
Giovanna, the owner, is extremely welcoming and hospitable, and very helpful, providing lots of advice, information and practical help as well as a lovely welcome. A great choice for a holiday on Lake Garda.
Had a fantastic week in La Casa di Gio at the beginning of July. From the very start all communication with Giovanna (owner) was very easy. She gave us a welcome like long lost family when we arrived (even put a greeting to us all on her door !). We have stayed in a few rentals but never got a welcome like this. She showed us around the property, gave us loads of travel tips, places top visit, restaurants etc. She also had a very good information booklet on the property and lots of tourist information. The apartment is very spacious - two good size bedrooms, a huge kitchen / living area, 2 bathrooms and 3 balconies. There is every cooking utensil under the sun. Giovanna also left us a lovely welcome pack. The apartment also has a fabulous pool complete with life guard ! Its a 10/15 min walk into Desenzano which is a lively town particularly at the weekend and on Wed when they have a white night with lots of bands and live music. Its a great base to travel around Lake Garda - we took the boat to Sirmione, cable car to Monte Baldo and Verona as well as lake side beach trips. Thoroughly recommend this property and Desenzano
I am happy when my guest feel well at home:-)
Every Expectation Exceeded
In our experience, the flattering on-line photographs of holiday homes do not often truly reflect the reality, which is sometimes a disappointment. In the case of La Casa di Gio - the opposite is true - you have to visit to find out how gorgeous it really is. It has a loved and long cherished feel with every wall and surface displaying lovely art and beautiful ornaments, and is so well equipped with every cupboard full of all you could possibly need. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. On top of all this the views of the lake from the balconies are lovely and the pool is stunning - clean, exclusive, with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, your own sun beds, umbrella and even a life guard! Meeting Giovanna was a highlight of our holiday, she was so welcoming, charming and helpful, and it wasn't a surprise that the apartment had a delightful homely feel which she worked hard to provide. We found lots to do locally with our 2 children, and the town of Desenzano was very attractive and not too busy or touristy. Giovanna recommended some good local restaurants and the cities of Bergamo and Verona are both an hours drive away and are glorious. Thank you Giovanna, we hope to return in the future.
Thank you very much, I hope to meet you again.
Hilly, quiet, ideal for those seeking relaxation and sport. Not far from the city center 'and from the port, where boats leave to visit the countries of the lake. Nearby is the park's pond, where you can 'practice (Basketball-Skate-Jogging- Skating-playground) and bike path. The train station is easily reachable on foot (lines Milan-Verona-Venice) and the departure of the Shuttle Leterme of Sirmione and Gardaland.
