A Gem in the Gardone Riviera

  • 5 of 5

"Charming Historical Lake View Villa With Huge Private Park and Creek" perfectly described this beautiful villa. We were pleasantly surprised to find the house even more beautiful and the location even better than we expected. From the very first contact with Laura, we were provided helpful information, such as where to rent bicycles and anything else we needed. Laura and Jacapo were incredibly friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay at this historical beauty again! I fully recommend this property not only for the house and location, but it is very well situated for day trips to Verona, Venice, Moderno, Limone and many more charming villages nearby! Rent bicycles from Matta and ride to Moderno, take the ferry across the lake, and you will be pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful (and flat) path all along the lake in which to ride for hours.

Thank you Laura and Jacapo for making our first trip to Italy such a memorable and enjoyable vacation!!

Wonderful Stay in Lake Garda

  • 4 of 5

The location and house was great. It was a magical place to stay in a typical Italian mansion. The house itself was old but very comfortable and relaxing. The view amazing. Just as described on the website. Laura could not have been more accommodating! Whenever there was a problem, she was right on it. Even during a very hot summer visit, she found the only fans in Gardone Riveria for us... a lifesaver. Her recommendations were great as she provided a folder of the best things to see in the area. The only reason it is not rated as excellent is the kitchen was old and the oven not the best. Everything else was clean and in working order... just "vintage" which we adored. Even when I had query re: the bill, Laura sorted it out to our mutual agreement. Would highly recommend this place or any other property Laura manages... best choice for a family/large group. **

Quaint but charming villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Gardone from the moment we arrived and were welcomed with great warmth and hospitality. The villa is beautifully located with a lovely view. The decor is a bit quaint and old fashioned but for us it added to its charm. The only drawback, if you are sensitive to noise, are the church bells which are quite close to the property. But at the same time it reinforce the fact that you are not in a city anymore but in an old and beautiful village. The people of Gardone are very friendly; we particularly enjoyed shopping every day at the green-grocer, a kind and welcoming woman.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review, yes the bells can be quite loud, but they are the only "noise" you have around! All the best, Laura

Nous avons énormément apprécié avec mes amis ce séjour au bord du lac de Garde, dans une superbe maison de famille authentique.

L'accueil par Laura à été des plus sympathiques elle à été d'une grande disponibilité.

The Villa is located in the quiet and charming village of Morgnaga, which is part of Gardone Riviera. The benefit of this location is that by walk it is possible to reach in 10 minutes the historical center of Gardone Alto and the lake side promenade of Gardone Basso, both lively places with wide choise of restaurants and caffè. You will also find a good selection of attractive shops and excellent restaurants in the nearby Salò town, with it's famous lakeside promenade (25 minutes walk).

Therefor the position on this Villa benefits of all the facilities offered by the closest centers, but at the same time you will feel that you are not in a tourist location at all an you will be immerse in the local life of this small historical italian Borgo.

Gardone Riviera thanks to the variety of its flora is called “the Garda Lake’s garden”. The liberty style of many villas create an exclusive atmosphere. The central position of this charming village grant a breathtaking view of the entire Lake Garda basin. In its quiet tiny square you will breathe the typical atmosphere of the Italian village. Gardone is a centre of tourist interest thanks to “Vittoriale degli Italiani”, last residence of the eclectic Italian poet Gabriele Dannunzio. In the wide park surrounding the house there is a open-air lake view theatre were you can listen to Italian opera during some the summer nights. Very interesting as well is the Botanical Garden Heller. It is possible to do many activities such as walks in the village and in the mountains, from which you will enjoy some wonderful views, water ski, wake board, kite surf and windsurf (20 km), sail, golf (10 km), tennis. Gardone and the closest locality (Salò, Desenzano, Brescia)offer many restaurants, etc.
