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.'

Bathroom, bedroom and kitchen linen is provided by the condominium, though there is a small discount of 12 euros a head if you take your own. Of the above facilities, the swimming-pool, washing-machine, swing(s), 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. As well as the wonderful swimmimg-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.

                                                                        App. 510, 1.Stock: 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.

                                                                        Lake Garda - Garda town: Studio apartment 715

                                                                        k t.UK

                                                                        Great place to stay for lakeside living; a pleasant short walk to town and plenty of walking/biking options from the apartment into the hills and along the lake.

                                                                        Apartment block is set in a quiet location in large well-kept gardens. 2 minute walk to lake side / beach / promenade - quite a steep walk up to the apartment block (lifts in the block itself). Large reception/public areas (TV, seating, etc). 10-15 minutes walk along pedestrian promenade to Garda town, with all amenities, plenty of restaurants and bars, mini markets, and good bus and ferry links around the area. Also a bus stop right outside the apartment running up the east side of the lake. Garda town was lovely, and buses/boats/bicycles to get to other Garda towns around the lake were easy to arrange.

                                                                        A 4 minute walk up through the grounds up steps to beautiful large swimming pool and bar/cafe.

                                                                        Apartment 715 was a studio, basic facilities but with everything that one would want, spotlessly clean and with air con. One room with sleeping area, chairs and dining area, with small bathroom with shower, and a kitchenette. Views from the balcony over trees looking down over the lake.

                                                                        On-site caretakers helpful, and English-speaking. Very smooth and professional service from the owners and on-site managers.

                                                                        We received a large amount of infromation from the owner before our arrival and this was greatly appreciated. We were not disappointed. Apt 715 was ideally located. Beautiful surroundings, lovely walk to Garda along the sea wall, amazing swimming pool up the hill. Above all it was quiet! Ali was extremely helpful. We found it an excellent base for touring the area (including Venice). Excursions to lakeside towns were a delight.

                                                                        insgesamt gesehen war alles in Ordnung

Am Anreisetag war es noch vermietet toll nach 12 Stunden Fahrt und 2 Kindern. Nach langen Disskussionen konnten wir für eine Nacht woanders schlafen.Das Appartment ist sehr einfach nicht mal Vorhänge,die Möbel alt und muffig,die Matratzen passen nicht mal in den Bettkasten eine Zumutung alles provisorisch und alt. Das Geschirr war so verdreckt das wir uns selber Kaffeebecher gekauft haben. Das Appartment ist nicht zu empfehlen.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Bezug nehmend auf das Schreiben vom 10/8/2008 möchte ich darauf hinweisen, dass der Gast einen Tag vor der Buchung angekommen ist. Deshalb war die Wohnung noch vermietet und noch nichht sauber.

                                                                        Dieses jahr ist die Küche völlig erneuert und die Wohnung ganz neu gestrichen und hat vorhäaege.

                                                                        This guest arrived the day before expected, so of course the apartment was not ready. The kitchen was totally refurbished this winter.

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.
