Overview

Garda Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Three 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 (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.

See also property number 4054 for a one-bedroom apartment for a couple in Bardolino, a little further south on Lake Garda.

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.'

More Details

Details for Apartment 510 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 5, 2 Bathrooms

We own this apartment and look forward to the time when we can spend long periods in it. It has a double bed in the bedroom and sleeps 3 in the living-room. In addition, it has 2 balconies, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. The apartment is comfortable rather than luxurious. There are books, games and maps there, as well as lots of bedding for cooler times of year. The kitchen is small but very well-equipped, and totally refurbished winter 2006/7. It is on the first floor (there is a lift) and there is a good view of the lake. The condo boasts a 'solarium' - a bit of flat roof - with wonderful views and a few deckchairs. For groups or two families together, we can offer a second one-bedroom apartment and/or a studio apartment in the same building.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had a fabulous time in Garda. Many thanks for your helpfulness and efficiency in making our holiday as hassle-free as possible. We have really fallen in love with the area and its people and would like to provisionally book for next year...'

'Thank you for the wonderful holiday. The apartment was clean, spacious and well-equipped, not to mention how helpful and friendly Maria Luisa was. This was our first visit to Italy - but definitely not the last! - and the first time we have booked over the internet. I was apprehensive about it but the help I received from you prior to leaving eased all doubts.'

'Thanks once again - I am sure we shall return.'

'We were very pleased with the apartment and Maria was very helpful. The weather was a little wet but we still managed to visit Monte Baldo, Verona and Venice, and had a really good day in Gardaland.'

'Your instructions, tips etc were spot on and taxi to & from airport went smoothly. We can see why you love it.'

Garda, guter Platz für Strand und City

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely place, well worth a visit

  • 4 of 5

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.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay made even better by the attention to detail of the owner who provided a great service.

The property is within spitting distance of both the lake & the town.

We had a great week there

Kommen gerne wieder

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung ist mit seinem kleinen Balkon für 2 Personen ideal. Sie befindet sich in der 3. Etage. Ein Fahrstuhl steht zur Verfügung. Die Wohnanlage ist dreigeschossig und war früher mal ein Hotel und wurde jetzt in Ferienwohnungen umgewandelt. Wenn man Probleme hat, dann kann man sich an eine Servicefrau im 1. Gebäudetrakt oder an den Hausmeister wenden. Beide können aber kein deutsch. Die Servicedame aber perfekt englisch und ist genauso wie der Hausmeister sehr hilfsbereit. In der Wohnung befindet sich alles was man braucht. Da die Wohnung etwas zurück gelegen von der Küstenstrasse liegt hört man wenig vom Autoverkehr. Da sind manche Hotelzimmer durch die Küstenstrassennähe erheblich lauter. Ein grosser Vorteil ist, dass man von der Anlage durch einen Tunnel direkt zur schönen Promenade bzw. Kieselsteinstrand kommt. Man geht somit dem Verkehr aus dem Wege. Ansonsten befindet sich direkt am Ausgang der Anlage eine Bushaltsstelle. Die Busse fahren nach Verona oder Riva. Die Promenade geht durch mehrere Orte ( bis Lazise). Oberhalb der Anlage ist ein schöner Swimmingpool den man kostenfrei nutzen kann. Ca. 10 Minuten von der Wohnung entfernt ist schon der kleine Bootsanleger für die Schiffe. Die max. Punktzahl haben wir nicht vergeben, da der Fernseher sehr klein ist und die 3 deutschen Fernsehprogramme nicht empfangen wurden sowie das Internet nur im Foyer funktioniert.

Alles perfekt!

  • 5 of 5

Eine zentral gelegene Anlage mit schönen Grünflächen und einem wunderbaren Swimming-Pool.

Das Appartment ist sehr gut ausgestattet (Herdplatten, Backofen usw.) und bietet ausreichend Platz.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und unkompliziert.

Wir würden gerne wieder hinfahren.

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.

Notes:
IMPORTANT: The air-conditioning is an old-fashioned air-cooling system, and not the most effective in the world! It does not extend well into the bedroom, where there is a ceiling-fan which we have always found quite adequate. Bathroom, bedroom and kitchen linen is an extra, provided by the condominium if required for 15 euros per head per set. This only just covers the cost of the laundry and delivery to the apartment. As well as the double bedroom there are two adjoining single beds and a sofa-bed 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.
