Old country house, 5 minutes walk from beaches, high quality wine and oil - Le Chiusure 2

Bedrooms 2
Space 968 sq. ft.
Property type apartment

Le Chiusure 2

An old porch of 90 square meters restored so as to maintain its original flavour. The old stone wall around the property forms the living room wall, which opens onto the garden with a panoramic window. A master bedroom and a double room, two bathrooms one with tub, the other with shower, and the possibility of a sofa bed in the large living room make this apartment adequate for up to 6 people.

About the property

Le Chiusure

Le Chiusure is located in the oldest part of the village of Portese, right next to the ruins of the castle, with our vineyards and olive grove on the other side. An old stone wall surrounds the property and protects the privacy of those that choose to spend some time at our place. At the entrance two century-old mulberry trees and a small chapel built in the 1700s introduce you to the courtyard structured in the typical fashion of rural houses around the lake. The apartment has been recently restored and decorated in keeping with the style of the house. From the windows you can enjoy views of the surrounding hills, the garden and the inner courtyard. Our guests have at their disposal a large portion of the garden where they can eat in the evening or relax during the day. Le Chiusure is also a farm that produces high quality wines and olive oil. So it is the perfect place for wine lovers, a holiday between the vineyards and the beaches of Lake Garda.

Quiet, friendly flat for family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the „Giardino“ appartment (family with two kids (2 years + 4 months)). Perfect for our purpose: apartment is at ground level, so we could drive our baby buggy easily into the apartment. We were also very happy to relax in the garden and erected our small paddling pool there for our daughter (ca. 1 diameter). The owners also live there and were very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is quite, huge and furnished with all necessities. The mattresses were the best we had ever had in a holiday flat. We stayed there when it was quite hot (35 C) for several days and the apartment was still acceptable warm/cold, so we had no problems sleeping. Worth mentioning is also “Charlie”, the cat: (mostly) did not run away when our two-year-old daughter saw him sitting somewhere and started her 10-20 meters run for him shouting loudly “I want to stroke Charlie”.

A small supermarket, a shop for newspapers (a huge variety of German newspapers is available there e.g. FAZ, Süddeutsche, Bunte), a café and a fruits/vegetable shop are nearby (2-3 minutes walk). The lake is also reachable by foot within a 15 minutes walk, but it is steep (too steep for our buggy).

Our family holiday at Le Chiusure was really nice

  • 5 of 5

We as a family with 4 children spent 14 very nice days in Le Chiusure 2. The apartment offers all we needed during our stay. If you miss something, you can ask the landlord and he will help you. We enjoyed the winetasting the landlord offers once a week. The beach can be reached by foot. In the near of San Felice there are enough occassion to visit. We can recommend Le Chiusure.

Une belle propriété avec un grand jardin mais...

  • 2 of 5

nous avons été très déçu de découvrir un gite rural plutôt qu’un appartement confortable. L’appartement « Giardino » que nous avons loué est certes spacieux mais très rudimentaire et sommaire, très loin de ce que pouvait présager les photos : aucune décoration, aucun équipement (pas de sèche-cheveux, pas d’étendeur pour linge, pas de lumière dans le réfrigérateur, minuterie de micro-onde cassé, pas fer ni de table à repasser, etc….). De plus le wi-fi annoncé ne se capte qu’au milieu du jardin ! Nous aurions souhaitez en louant dans un agritourismo que les propriétaires nous propose au moins de découvrir le domaine viticole avec les enfants. Et peut-être aussi une dégustation en dehors de la dégustation payante prévue chaque jeudi ? En bref, nous avons ressenti peut d’intérêt et peu d’effort de la part des propriétaires et nous avons trouver ca cher par rapport aux prestations proposées.

Owner's Response: Nous avons été vraiment désolés de lire votre jugement si sèvère (…mais) alors que vous nous aviez donné l’impression d’apprecier votre sejour. Ce que d’ailleur la première partie du titre de votre commentaire laisse entrevoir. Nous sommes aussi surpris de votre remarque au sujet de notre manque de disponibilité à vous faire visiter notre domaine. Toutefois, il est vrai que le niveau des services démandé jusqu’à il y a peu de temps a changé, voilà pourquoi nous avons dans nos projets pour l’hiver 2014-2015 des investissements selon trois objectifs principaux : 
- améloration de la qualité des services et de l’ameublement
- mise à jour de la documentation (photographies) web pour une description plus précise et détaillée
- améloration et élargissement du wi-fi

Anlage mit Patina, enttäuschende Austattung

  • 1 of 5

Wir hatten die Wohnung "Giardinio" gebucht und erwarteten "Das Apartment wurde kürzlich renoviert und dem Stil des gesamten Hauses angepasst." wie in der Beschreibung bei FeWo direkt angegeben. Bei Ankunft trafen wir eine Wohnung an, die ohne Zweifel Patina besitzt, deren Innenausstattung aber nicht heutigen Standards entspricht und nicht dem geforderten Preis entsprach. Möbel im Wohnzimmer in einer bunten Mischung aus den 70-90iger Jahren, eine Küche mit undichtem Kühlschrank und sich ablösendem Lack neben einem Tisch im Stile der 70iger Jahre mit von Hitze gewellter Oberfläche. Dazu teils rostige Gartenmöbel neben Sitzgruppen mit gemischten Plastikmöbeln im Garten. Der Vermieter war völlig ohne Einsicht und verwies auf frühere zufriedende Gäste und empfand jegliche Kommentare als Beleidigung. Wir fühlten uns um einen schönen Urlaub betrogen und brachen den den Aufenthalt nach 30 min und Zahlung von 50% der Mietsumme ab.

Owner's Response: Wir haben absichtlich einige Zeit verstreichen lassen, bevor wir eine Antwort auf die Rezension senden. Waehrend des Sommers 2014 haben elf weitere Familien in dieser Wohnung gewohnt, die uns wiederum ermutigt haben, durch Lob und Wertschaetzung, aufgrund unserer Gastfreundschaft, unserer Wohnung, unseren Moebeln, unserer Dichtung fuer den Kuehlschrank.....  uns von dem Schock, verursacht durch diese Gaeste und deren geringschaetziges Verhalten, zu erholen.   Fuer uns war es sehr schwer zu verstehen, dass Gartenstuehle und Tische, die von Anfang des letzten Jahrhunderts stammen, die wir im Laufe der Jahre in Frankreich gekauft haben, und die wir mit voller Absicht ausgesucht haben, um unserem Garten einen etwas antiken Charme zu verleihen ( manche sind lackiert, manche auf rostig angestrichen) , als  "verrostete Stuehle" angesehen werden, dass 8 Stuehle vom Designer Jasper Morrison "Air Chair", nichts zu tun haben mit ordinaeren "Plastikstuehlen", deklassiert werden, als "Gruppe gemischter Plastikstuehle"; und ein grosses, komfortables Schlafsofa von Ikea, erstanden im Jahr 2013 verwechselt wurde mit einem alten Sofa aus den 70- 80 er Jahren..... Ich bestaetige, dass ich als Vermieter die Kommentare als sehr offensiv und unberechtigt empfinde, da sie nicht der Realitaet entsprechen. Nachdem all dies gesagt ist, hat sich der qualitative Standart der Touristenangebote in den vergangenen Jahren geaendert, so dass auch wir unseren Komfort in den Wohnungen verbessern koennen. Fuer den Winter 2014/2015 hat "Le Chiusure" eine neue Definierung fuer ihre Gastfreundschaftlichkeit im Programm ( unter anderem sind wir dabei, eine andere Wohnung zu restaurieren) mit zwei wichtigen Intentionen:     --  Erhoehung der Qualitaet der Moebel  --  Aktualisierung der Fotos, um eine noch praezisere Beschreibung der Wohnungen im Web darstellen zu koennen.

A new definition of happiness

  • 5 of 5

Le Chiusure is not just the perfect holiday location : it's a way of life, and it's a way of changing your life. You just don't come back "happy" from Le Chiusure : you come back with a new definition of happiness, and you want to share it with your friends, your family, all the persons you love. We stayed at Le Chiusure in July 2013, with our 1-year-old boy. We found there the taste of what Italy offers better : great landscapes, great food, great wine (made there by Alessandro), great people, and many many simple joys of everyday-life in a small authentic Italian village. We came there with no certainties; we come back home with the certainty we will go again to this place.

Gardasee neu entdeckt

  • 5 of 5

Stilvolle Ferienwohnung (Giardino) auf kleinem Weingut, ideal für uns (2 Ehepaare mit je 1 Kleinkind), die Schlafzimmer liegen jeweils auf einer Seite des Wohnzimmers, beide mit eigenem Bad. Großer, schöner Garten. Sehr nette Vermieter, schönes kleines Dörfchen mit Lebensmittelgeschäft, welches jeden Tag geöffnet hat.

Der Hafen ist leicht zu Fuß zu erreichen, zur Badestelle macht man einen schönen kleinen Spaziergang.

P.S. Moskitonetz nicht vergessen...

The territory of San Felice del Benaco is a large peninsula that overlooks the Gulf of Salò. It is far away from the main roads and still show its beautiful nature made of hills covered in olive trees, green fields that leads to marvellous beaches spread in one of the most preserved part of the Garda Lake coast. You can swim or practice all water sports starting with sailing and surfing; or you can ride a bike or walk in the nearby Parc of Alto Garda Bresciano. However San Felice is close to the main attractions of the area: you can walk down to the lake and take the public boat service that brings you in Salò, Gardone Riviera, Riva, Sirmione (the famous peninsula in the southern part of the lake with the twenty centuries old roman Villa di Catullo). Art cities like Brescia, Bergamo, Mantova, Verona (with the Arena opera festival) are only at less than one hour driving and Venice and Milan at one hour and a half driving. You can also reach the Dolomites Mountains in a couple of hour.
