Two apartments in the same condominium plus extra accommodation for groups

We let apartments in lovely grounds overlooking this spectacular lake. They are a few minutes walk from the lakeside, a few more from the charming town. The condominium has a wonderful swimming-pool, with a toddler pool and restaurant and a magnificent view. It is surrounded by lovely grounds rich in mature trees, and offers safe access to the lakeside via an underpass under the road. Where we join the lake is the best beach on the lake (stony), and the swimming is wonderful. Public transport and road links are very good and trips can easily be made to Gardaland,Verona,Venice,Milan,Mantova etc. Steamer services take you to all the other little towns around the lake, and there are all types of walks, from strolling along the promenade, to climbing in the nearby mountains (possibly helped by a cable car). The town, with its pedestrianised shopping area of old and narrow lanes, has cafe's, bars and restaurants to suit every budget. Other apartments can be taken along with apt 510 for larger groups.

General information: We feel very lucky to have discovered these apartments, and to own one. The view from the balconies, the grounds, the walks of all kinds, the mountain scenery, the changing appearance of the lake, the shoreline, the cafe's and restaurants on the promenade, the proximity of wonderful historic cities - it is all so beautiful! There are various facilities and theme parks to entertain the children and the climate is excellent. The condominium can easily be reached by bus from Verona airport, while there are cheap flights to Verona, Bergamo, Venice and Milan (in order of closeness). Hire a car or use train and bus or we can arrange for our friendly taxi-driver to meet you. Or drive down. Finally, if, like me, you worry about the effect of flying on our environment, there is a very pleasant train route, at least from the south of England. Take the Eurostar to Paris Nord, cross to Gare de Bercy, and take the night train to Verona arriving 7.25am. For other train routes, please contact us.

Before you leave this page:: We haven't mentioned the open-air opera in the Arena in Verona. It's on in July and August, it's easy to get tickets, and there are buses to take you there from outside our gate.

Nor have we mentioned Signora Maria Luisa, our English-speaking colleague and housekeeper of the condominium. She looks after our guests beautifully and sorts out any problems. She leaves a basic welcome pack for new arrivals, and basic cooking necessities are also left.

Warning: There is a longish slope and 35 steps up to the pool, but you can also reach it by car.

Letters from guests:: 'We had a wonderful time - the apartment was fabulous and the whole area is just perfect for a family holiday. After a good scout round the little towns and villages around the lake, we were still in no doubt at all that we loved Garda best. We enjoyed the privacy, beautiful grounds and pool, and Maria Luisa and Ali were most helpful and welcoming. Many, many thanks for all your assistance, your directions were excellent. Thanks for making our holiday arrangements so carefree.'

'I want to compliment you on the professionalism of the whole operation. The briefing was excellent and the way the whole set-up is organised is wonderful. We were delighted with the apartment - the location and the facilities, and Maria was very nice and helpful...'

'Italy and Lake Garda were a wonderful experience for my son and me. Hopefully we will get to visit again as the memories we have are wonderful and I know there is a lot more to explore.'

                                                                      • IMPORTANT: The air-conditioning is an old-fashioned air-cooling system. It does not extend well into the bedroom, where there is a ceiling-fan which we have always found quite adequate. As well as the double bedroom there are two adjoining single beds in the living-room. The balconies face south, one being sunny, one being shaded. Of the above facilities, the swimming-pool, washing-machine, garden, swings, cots and high-chairs are communal. There is a ramp and lift for wheel-chair access, and I am assured the doors are wide enough for a wheel-chair. As well as the wonderful swimming-pool we share with another complex, there is a spectacular new Leisure Centre with pools in Garda which you can reach using the free town shuttle bus.

                                                                        Reg W.

The apartment (510) is comfortable and fully equipped and has the best view of the lake .The pool is excellent and has great views. Tessa , the owner was very helpful and flexible when we had to cancel our booking at the last minute, eventually rebooking a year later and was accommodating with our arrival and departure times .

                                                                        We would recommend this appartment to anyone wanting to sample the delights of Garda and the Lake .

                                                                        Fabulous location

                                                                        Susan B.

                                                                        We had a lovely week's holiday here. The apartment is as described, and was very clean and well organised. The staff on site were welcoming and helpful. The apartment was in attractively landscaped grounds and we enjoyed the views from the balconies. We really appreciated all the helpful information that Tessa gave to us beforehand and there were lots of books and info in the apartment too.

                                                                        The best thing though was the perfect location, a few minutes walk from both a gorgeous pool that was never too busy, and in the other direction the beautiful beach at Garda. It was also only a short scenic stroll to the restaurants and shops of Garda Town, and lots of things to see and do within driving distance.

                                                                        We had delicious pizzas at the restaurant by the pool, and particularly enjoyed the views and the proseccos at the little cafe on the beach.

                                                                        We had a great holiday, the children loved it, and we hope to return.

                                                                        Perfect for our short stay in Garda

                                                                        Victoria O.

                                                                        The apartment was perfect for our short stay in Garda. The owner, Tessa, was extremely helpful and provided detailed information on how to get to the apartment and the local facilities. The apartment itself was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a family of four. The highlight was the large communal swimming pool, which was one of the nicest pools we have been to, with the added bonus of a nice restaurant on site. The location is ideal, with gated access directly to the lake just a few minutes walk away and less than 10 minutes walk into the centre of Garda Town. We will definitely return.

                                                                        Garda, guter Platz für Strand und City

                                                                        Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung in einer Parkanlage (mit dem Charme der 60er-Jahre, damals absoluter Luxus). Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältniss (Nebensaison Mitte September). Wir waren 5 Tage in 510, dann 9 Tage in 715.

                                                                        App. 510: Mit separatem Schlafzimmer und guten Betten (besser als 715). Küche und Einrichtung ist besser ausgestattet als 715 (man merkt, dass die Besitzer selbst hier manchmal wohnen. 2 Balkone, ein Sonnen- und ein Schatten-Balkon.

                                                                        App. 715: Balkon mit Seeblick, 3.Stock (mit Aufzug). Sonnenschirm mitbringen (sonst ist es zum Frühstück zu warm)!

                                                                        Gut ausgestattete Küche mit Toaster, Käsereibe (Parmesan), Espressokanne, Pfannen (eine war dreckig von den Vor-Feriengästen), 2-Plattenherd.

                                                                        Nicht perfekt (das hatten wir auch nicht erwartet): 2 (Schrank-)Betten sind etwas umständlich zu handhaben, die Schlafcouch ist nicht sehr rückenfreundlich (eher etwas für Kinder).

                                                                        Manches ist etwas ältlich: Das (alte) Schloss ließ sich nach 3 Tagen nicht mehr abschließen; Ali, der nette Hausmeister hat es recht schnell geschmiert. Das hielt dann 5 Tage... dann hat er es wieder geschmiert (soll ersetzt werden). Die Dusche hielt nur recht locker in der Halterung und rutschte manchmal raus (Der Duschkopf ist ersetzt worden-ein anderes Modell).

                                                                        Etwas Englisch und/oder Italienisch sollte man sprechen. Ali und Maria-Luisa (die netten Ansprechpartner vor Ort) können kein Deutsch. Tessa aus England, die Besitzerin und Managerin von 510 und 715 ist supernett. Wenn sie da ist, kümmert sie sich, sofort, wenn es Probleme gibt.

                                                                        Clean and comfortable

                                                                        Susan S.London

                                                                        Lovely place, well worth a visit

                                                                        Louise K.

                                                                        We loved our stay here. The description of the area doesn't tell the full story. The apartment is perfectly placed for walking to the town along the bay, going swimming in the lake and generally exploring the area. It was a good size for the four of us, especially having two en suite bathrooms.

                                                                        The swimming pool is a real gem. This is the first one I've seen with an island in the middle growing olive bushes. It's beautiful at the pool and we spent many a lazy morning having excellent coffee and later lunch from the restaurant. Great food.

                                                                        Location

                                                                        The condo is on the edge of the historic little town of Garda,which is on the south-east shore of the lake at its widest part, in a sheltered bay. The location is fantastic, with 3-minute access to the lakeside via our private underpass, where you find a promenade into town on your left (7 mins), a cafe/bar 150 metres along to the right, and the beach in the photo stretching round the bay to your right. There are walks along the lakeside in both directions, and also up into the hills around. We always feel sorry for the visitors we see trailing down the roads to the lake from the hotels a bit further inland. Garda offers easy access to Verona, Venice , Mantua, Milan and - further away - Bologna. Easy-jet and BA fly from Gatwick to Verona.
