About the property

Big villa in a nature reserve on Lake Garda, sleeps up to 15 people

Built in the early 1900s, 'Stunning Views' is a big villa (700 sq metres), that has belonged to the same family ever since. It is in the lovely area of San Vigilio di Garda, a couple of minutes walk from a very nice beach with great swimming opportunities. It was awarded the 'Best view of Lake Garda 'prize by an Italian villa rental magazine for its views of Lake Garda and the unique famous location of Punta San Vigilio: a lovely, secluded place on Lake Garda. The villa's spacious interiors have been renovated in 2012, yet the villa still retains its original charm. The big fenced garden is immersed in a nature reserve with century old trees and rare flowers (spring wild orchids in the garden!), walking and MTB paths. Nearby many lovely pretty hamlets of Lake Garda with harbour , castles, wine tasting and delicious food. Venice is only a short drive from the villa, as well as Italian Disneyland 'Gardaland', Verona, Parcosigurtà, Borghetto, Sirmione, Vicenza, Padua, Milan, Bergamo!

Why ML chose Verona

10 reasons why we love our holidays at the villa

.................................................................

1. It was passed down through the generations of our family, a home with history, tradition, character is a lovely heritage. We feel very lucky to share this privilege with people from all over the world by letting it to them when we don't use it.

.................................................................................

2. It is only few minute walk from the most beautiful beach of Lake Garda and from San Vigilio (a famous romantic little hamlet).......................................

3. The view from the villa, from the garden and from the refreshing pool is the best we have ever seen anywhere!

..........................................................

4. The villa and the garden are so big, plenty of space for everybody..............................................................

5. 10 minute drive from the villa: winetasting 'cantine', the monday morning and friday street market, the ferry harbour.

.................................

6. Lake Garda is the biggest Lake in Italy, there are so many villages and sightseeing to do, we have holidayed here forever, yet we still find something interesting to see or do every summer

...................................

7. The ferry ride around the lake with local ferries..............

8. Half an hour drive from Verona, we love the opera in the Arena, Juliet's balcony, the lovely small city centre and its colourful houses, the market of Piazza Erbe...and much more

..............................

9. Easyjet airport of Verona Villafranca is only 30 minutes drive away from the villa, and Venice and Bergamo are also a short drive from the villa....................................................

10. We love our team of cleaners, we find the villa clean and tidy all the time, they are really professional

What makes this villa unique

10 unique benefits...

1. Our refreshing pool and the beach (the beach is 10 minutes walk)........................................................

2. A lovely gazebo made with five, huge bayleaves trees, we just

love to eat there in high summer, or simply read a book on our sunbeds, protected by the scented shade..................................................................

3. The loggia room inspired by the architect Sanmicheli of nearby Sanvigilio...watching the sunset from the loggia is just...magic........................................

4. The marble fireplaces in the living room, they are great for a lovely log fire in a rainy day, they are also great for barbecues!!!

Mind you: rainy days on Lake Garda are very rare. We also love the marble bathroom on the top floor, made with marmo rosso di Verona.......................................................

5. We love our dinner parties in the dining room in the villa, our new twin tables can sit up to 15 guests, plenty of space, yet nice and cosy............................................................

6. The 'breakfast balcony' with views........................................................................

7. Our beloved 'kitchen courtyard': scented jasmin in the summer and colourful camellias in the early spring, plenty of figs to eat in late summer... we love 'cooking with a view...and with a scent!'.....................................................................

8. Our brand new really comfy new mattresses, we love to sleep well !...........................................................................

9. The garden is immersed in a Nature Park Reserve, so we are literally surroundered by nature! There is a great network of hiking and cycling paths in the nature reserve on our doorstep

...........................................................................

10. The room with the terrace on the top floor....stunning views!

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying the views are amazing. The villa itself is impressive, spacious, and nicely kept. It is a great place to stay for anyone considering Lake Garda. In my opinion, the fireplaces are the best part of the villa. Maria and Lydia are excellent hosts. Thank you for everything!

Castle like Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this great Villa, which is almost like a Castle. We celebrated my mother's 84 year birthday with 3 families, altogether 12 persons staying. There was good space for us all, and the views were excellent to the lake.

Special thanks for Lydia, giving us detailed tour around the Villa and helping with some matters above her duties.

And of course big thanks to Laura Maria and the Benciolini family!

We highly recommend this place for bigger families to spend time together. And we wish to come back some day...

Owner's Response: Dear Jari! We would like to thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this lovely review. Best regards to all of you, especially your mamma! We hope you come back! Note for future enquiries. We are receiving a lot of enquiries for parties, weddings, celebrations. We regret that this villa is not for large scale events, only family quiet celebrations and holidays. We ask our guests to sign a contract reading maximum number of guests 15, including children and babies. We are sorry not be able to accept more than 15 people anytime in the villa. We hope to welcome you!

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a great week at the Villa. There were four generations - 9 months to 87 years old and we all loved it. There was plenty of space, indoor and out. The views truly are breath-taking; the garden is large and very pretty and there is so much to do in the local area. We didn't want to leave! Would thoroughly recommend it.

Stunning villa and brilliant family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We rented the villa for a long weekend in September for 12 of us to celebrate a family occasion and had a fabulous weekend. The owner, Maria Laura, couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. The villa is huge - even the 'small' rooms are very ample for children - and the extensive dining room / lounge space made it perfect for our purpose. The house was clearly built with great love and we felt we were getting an authentic Italian family experience. But the real feature is the setting and the incredible views across the lake. We spent an immensely enjoyable 3 days swimming, strolling through the olive glades, wandering down to the beautiful San Vigilio national park and watching the sunset over a glass of wine or two from the many vantage points around the villa. We just wish we'd been able to stay for longer. Thank you Maria & family for a wonderful holiday!

The best family holiday - super views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two week stay over the summer of 2013. The house really exceeded our expectations. It is in a lovey area with an easy walk to the beach. We loved the garden and made good use of the outdoor eating area. The owner could not have been nicer and more helpful. The house has a new kitchen with most everything you need as well as the use of a BBQ grill. We loved it.

Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié la piscine. Une belle région à découvrir et dont on a bien profité. Merci!

Lovely villa right in the middle of an unspoilt nature reserve. A couple of minutes walk down to the lovely romantic beach of San Vigilio’s with the pretty church and harbour, you could enjoy swimming in the crystal clear water beach of the “Mermaid’s Bay'! San Vigilio is also the setting of an excellent restaurant. Daytime kiosk with casual snacks at nearby beach.

There are many pretty villages of Lake Garda with picturesque pretty streets, wine tasting with local wines, shopping at one of the popular weekly street markets…

The villa is surrounded by a nature park for hiking and mountain bike.

Italian Disneyland “Gardaland” is only a couple of minutes drive away, or some other family parks like the Waterpark, Movieland, Sigurtà…& much more. Excellent sports nearby: 5 minutes drive: golf, boat rent. Verona and Venice only a short drive. Short drive from stunning Venice, Padua, Mantua, Vicenza, Dolomites. Beautiful Verona Unesco World Heritage Site, Juliet balcony, Arena festival

Other Activities: Sightseeing art cities (Verona, Venice, Florence)

Golf: The villa is an excellent base for golf playing, a lovely local golf course with scenic views is only 2 minutes drive from the villa, only 3 miles distance.
