About the property

100 m of water, nice house with 3 bedrooms and garden with covered gallery

BORGO PION is a domain of about 60 units, built against the Monte Baldo, and has many different levels. Not a house is the same in shape or color. They are often switched and appearance inspired by the ruins of the 12th century village near Campo.

The domain has a common fence, landscaped gardens and a beautiful swimming pool with changing rooms and showers and a panoramic view over the lake.

It lies just across the road from the Lake Garda, in Castelletto di Brenzone, between Riva and Garda.


The house is spacious, detached and consists of a living / dining room, a large basement with seating area and satellite TV, a well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms with shower and toilet and three 2-person bedrooms. The property is centrally heated.


The garden is fenced and covers a total of approximately 300 m2, divided into different levels. There are old olive trees and oleanders and quite a lot of stairs and steps (think small children!).

Next to the house is a spacious garden area with garden table / umbrella, overlooking the lake. At various other places, one can sit in sun or shade, as also in the indoor semi-open stone gallery diagonally above the house.


Ground floor:

Living- and dining table seating area;

Kitchen - stove with convection oven, double door fridge / freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender;

Bathroom - shower, bidet, toilet and sink;

Laundry room - washer, dryer, iron and ironing board;

Basement: - seating area with satellite television;


Bedrooms (3) - two with two 1-beds, one with double bed, all with ceiling fan.

Bathroom - shower, bidet, toilet and sink;

Inside the house is wifi.


The travel distance from Utrecht is 1200 km. Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and a total of about 60 km long. It is surrounded by the foothills of the Dolomites. Castelletto di Brenzone is located about 20 km south of Riva (north point v / h more) against Monte Baldo. In nearby Malcesine (15 min.) A large gondola goes up to 1750 m. Here one summer hiking and winter skiing.

The ridges on both sides of the lake provide what is called a 'micro-climate', which not only olive trees and oleanders, but palms and lemon trees can thrive here.

On this (northern) part of the lake in addition it blows very often and regularly, making the summer good sailing / windsurfing and moreover called something less.

Castelletto di Brenzone is one of several typical old villages along the coast; a small fishing harbor, some restaurants, a few shops. Coincidentally is also a large sailing club. The village is reached by foot along the lake in 10 minutes.

Torri del Benaco and Malcesine are small towns about 15 minutes (car) away. Here it is nice shopping in quaint old shop streets. Again, harbors and terraces.

Garda is a bit touristy. Here, near the lake wider and there is more room for development (and sites). Garda is a lovely town with many shops and restaurants. Here, and along the southern shore of the lake you will find many campsites and holiday parks, but also major theme parks such as Gardaland and Canevaworld.

Verona is one of the most beautiful northern Italian cities, of course, known for its beautiful Roman arena, where all summer famous operas are performed. Incidentally, a beautiful old town with plenty of sights (Juliet's house -which Romeo) and nice shops.

'On the lake' and 'in seclusion private' splendor!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay. The house is loved and well taken care of.

Plenty of space for a family of 4. In fact, we did not use one of the three bedrooms (no need) upstairs, or the 'game/bedroom' in the sub-level!! Bathrooms on both levels, and a washing machine area (a necessity when traveling with children).

Very functional kitchen (with all necessities) with inside as well as outside dinning area (where we spent most of the time while at the house) with fantastic views.

The lake is about 100 meters away (across road), with walkways of 10km in either direction.

Geographically, for us it is perfectly situated roughly between the south and north ends of the lake, without the busy tourist crowds. This made it perfect for quiet days at home, or 1/2 day outings to Torbole, Riva del Garda, Malscesine, Peschera del Garda, etc.

And on the 'home' days - I cannot express how much the children loved the 3-teir endless triple pool with its dream like views of the lake! Quiet, serene, and invigorating.

The nearest market is less than 5 mins away (by car); Malcesine is an easy 20 min drive north.

The house is part of a 'gated - private' community, We were greeted by the proprietor of the hotel down the road (who also lives in the community); with clear explanation of the area as well as complete assistance when it was needed (never had issues to though!).

Overall - fantastic!!! We would like to return soon!

The only thing to consider, is that there two access ways to the house, either coming down stairs (longer 100m), or up a cobble path (shorter 30m) - which would make it difficult for those with mobility issues.

Internet connectivity works, not fast, but this is not why we are at the lake!

The owners are splendid and always quick to respond. I only regret that we did not have a chance to meet them!

We miss you Castelletto di Brenzone!

Very nice house, lovely swimming pools and beautiful view but near very busy road

  • 3 of 5

The house is very nice with good sized bedrooms and the lovely swimming pools are on a higher level with stunning views across the lake. However, the house is very close to the lake side road and there is a lot of traffic which does die down at night but seemed to be pretty constant at all other times.

Maison très agréable et très bien située

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Castelleto et nous avons vraiment apprécié l'ambiance le soir sur le port de Castelleto. La maison est très agréable et très bien équipée.

La piscine est très grande et suffisante pour le nombre de maisons y ayant accès. On peut faire des longueurs sans problème et de la piscine on a une vue magnifique sur le lac.

Nous avons eu très chaud et heureusement qu'il y avait les ventilateurs dans toutes les chambres. Seul bémol, le bruit de la route mais cela est inhérent à la configuration du lac de Garde. Merci aussi à l'excellent accueil de Mme Anna Clara. Nous recommandons cette location.

"ons huis"

  • 4 of 5

Voor de zesde keer in dit huis.....!!! [in een tijdsbestek van 10 jaar]

Voelt als thuis komen. Lijkt niet op een vakantiehuis maar echt op een tweede huis van vrienden waar je een keer mag verblijven.

Authentiek dorpje waar je je meteen thuis voelt. Als je na het derde verblijf, na twee jaar, de bocht van het haventje omkomt krijg je bij ieder restaurant en terras een hand. Vooralsnog voor ons uniek!

Top location with a top view

  • 4 of 5

The first thing that will strike you, when you arrive at this lovely holiday home is the stunning view of the Garda Lake. Situated on the northern, more rugged part of the lake side, the view shows of lake trapped between steep mountainsides, reminiscent of Norwegian fjords.

The house itself is spacious and extremely well equipped. The bedrooms, bathrooms, living room and TV basement give you more than enough space if you should wish to stay inside. but the mysterious garden, with its fantastic views will invite you to spend as much time outside as possible. The garden is actually a number of gardens at different levels, each with its own specific character. The most exciting part is the gallery, a covered walkway with arched supports, with reclining seats, giving a superb view of the lake below, all private.

The holiday home itself is part of a group of houses, sharing some facilities, like the most fantastic pool area, with 3 pools overlooking the lake.

The location couldn't be much better. Situated within 50 meters of the lake, where a footpath allows you to go for a stroll up to the village of Castelleto, no car is needed for the local shopping and dining. Bread and groceries are available at two local shops. A wide selection of nice restaurants are arranged around the harbour or in the old village slightly up the mountain. And a number of bars offer you good espressos and cappuccinos. There is even an ice cream parlour which makes a nice evening stroll.

Is everything then perfect? No, there are some things worth mentioning. The holiday home is slightly up the mountain. The pool is definitely a bit of a climb. Anyone not having strong legs and good knees will suffer.

Parking is not easy. There is a public parking where you can park up on the mountain and apparently it is possible to park on the road below, though in our case that led to an interesting discussion with the local law enforcement. Consequently, unloading shopping and unpacking the car upon arrival is a challenge.

It gets hot in summer time in the area. And the heat gets into the house. There are some ceiling ventilators, but the nights will be sweltering and restless.

Should these downsides keep you from booking this holiday home? Absolutely not! The inconveniences do not come even close to outweighing the upsides. Imagine yourself sitting with a glass of chilled wine overlooking the lake while the sun is setting. It gives you the perfect holiday feeling.

Owner's Response: We could almost have been the authors ourselves! The master bedroom ceiling ventilator indeed seems to not work properly, and will be replaced before the next holiday season.
