About the property

Unique view & terrace for a truly italian experience

Between the pebbles of the old castle and the lake’s skyes an apartment unique for its features and spectacular location. In the most characteristic street of the historic center, a nest amongst the roofs of the old Desenzano village by the shore of the Garda Lake. Spectacular 360° view of the lake, the castel, the mountains and the morenic hills of Garda. Soft colors, delicate décor; silence, stillness and poetry in the old town. Only problem: it will be very difficult for you to leave!!

About The Owner

This is my home village by the Garda Lake. I love it deeply. I left it when I was 18, and now its a special place where to go back any time I need to relax and feel at home. I love to swim, walk and cycle around the lake. My children and my husband sailing in the lake every summer. Here are my roots and the sense of deep belonging.

Why The Owner chose Desenzano del Garda

The appartment is in the historical center of the village, just below the castle, with a fantastic view of the castel itself, the lake, the mountains and the hills.

What makes this apartment unique

The terrace its right on the village roofs, and offer an incredible setting for contemplation, but also for open air lunches, sunbathing, romantic dinners, fantastic sunset aperos.

Despite being in the very centre, the appartment is incredibly calm and silent: you can hear the castle cork, and the bells form the old dome tower.

Still, main attractions, pubs and restaurants are at a walking distance - with typical open market taking place by the lake on tuesdays, and by the castle on saturdays.

You can reach our home by car (nearby parking) or by train (10 min on foot).

A part from the fantastic beaches and views of the lake, Verona, Venice, Milan, Padua, Trento can be a one day trip.

Gardaland - the biggest italiana amusement parck - is at a 15 minutes drive.

Room with a View!

We had a wonderful 2 night stay. Excellent communication before we arrived, Ida and Paolo went above and beyond in their hosting - we were collected from the station, shown the apartment and then taken on a quick tour to get our bearings and shown the shops for essentials (including a wine shop at which you can buy 'on tap' wine from 2 euro a litre - bottles provided in the apartment)!

The apartment was spotless, beautifully decorated and well equipped but the highlight has to be the views - simply stunning from the good sized roof terrace and every window. Even the bed has been raised so you wake up to the view from the window at the bottom of the bed.

The apartment is 2 minutes walk to the main square and harbour yet very peaceful, a perfect combination.

We loved the fact that there was no tv (you don't need it with the view) and I'm not sure if there is internet; it allowed us to completely switch off and unwind.

We highly recommend this apartment and would definitely return.
