lovely apartment at the heart of a authentic Italian village
Got away from it all at this homely flat in Cavedine. Very clean and welcoming, everything you would need to cook for yourself if you wanted, a washing machine and dishwasher as well as plenty of room for the 2 of us. A lovely little terrace / balcony with a sideways view of the Piazza which is the heart of a tiny town with no aspirations to a tourist trap. there is a supermarket just 2 mins walk away and a bar in the piazza. The busses stop in the square, but we had a car, which was best to take advantage of the location. Riva del Garda and Torbole on the north shores of lake Garda are just 20 mins in the car. there is a lovely family pizzeria / resteraunt in Vigo Cavedine just 5 mins away by car. To the north Trento is only 30 mins away and loads of mountain walks and quiet cycle paths. If you like the watersports or mountain biking Riva is ideal. We got from Verona via the lakes side road in 2 - 3 hours with several little stops to look at places of interest and have coffee etc on the way, but you could make it in 75mins on the auto route. The hosts were very welcoming and there were even a few staples already in the cupboards. The building itself is really old and characterful, the Buildings round the Piazza have been there since medieval times. The house is on 4 floors with the holiday let being on the 1st floor. If there was one tiny criticism, I would say that the bathroom is a little dated and clumsily laid out, but, spotlessly clean with fresh linen and towels.
In short, if you want to be near the lake and the mountains but not in one of the malls of hotels and guest houses that the towns round the lake provide this place is perfect.
Beautifully restored, authentic Italian apartment in a traditional town. Highly recommended.
Cavedine is a nice place to base yourself for trips to Riva del Garda and surrounds especially if you have a car. We had a great time walking, trekking and biking. Riva has an excellent collection of level paved cycleways that the locals love. We day-tripped to Alpe di Siusi and to Strada Delle 52 Galleries and both were awesome experiences. The old Ponale walk south from Riva was fascinating as well. From the top of the town in Cavedine there is a lovely circular archaeological walk that lets you wander along an old Roman road through pleasant countryside. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable, and overlooked the main square of town, Piazza Italia, with its central fountain. Very authentic, very Italy. Probably the nicest accommodation on our trip and Luisa and Giuliana were lovely hosts.
The owners did a wonderful job restoring the apartment and the location is great if you want to experience the real Italian way of life. We really enjoyed our stay! We also highly recommend Cantina Toblino in Sarche for wine tasting and dinner.
Perfect fairy tale town, lovely spacious apartment
My wife and I stayed at Luisa and Giuliana's apartment in Cavedine for 12 days, and absolutely fell in love. We are already dreaming of going back. The apartment has a sizable living room, kitchen, and bedroom, all of which were recently renovated inside a historic building - so you get the clean, crisp, fully functional modern experience with historic architectural highlights that remind you you're in Italy. Everything was perfectly clean and ready for our arrival, and we really loved the space. We were both working on our computers for about 1/3 of our stay, and loved setting up work space and lounge space on the day bed, couch, kitchen table, terrace, bedroom... Plenty of space for two people to be comfortable constantly.
Luisa and her daughter-in-law Giuliana were extremely friendly, always available with a phone call or in their shop downstairs (literally below this apartment) - but also gave us space to have a romantic vacation. We loved getting to know them a bit, and only regret that we didn't spend more time with them.
Cavedine is a small town with many things to do nearby, but is probably one of few towns in Italy that has no hotel or restaurant, and is truly a small, living and breathing town full of friendly local people. There are two fully-stocked grocery stores with more than enough produce, wine, etc. - we cooked almost all of our meals in the apartment. There is a casual bar-restaurant in the neighboring town Brusino, and a pizzeria/pasta restaurant about 4km away in Vigo Cavedine (many restaurants are a bus ride away in Arco or Trento, but buses don't run very late unfortunately).
We did not have a car, and found walking and buses to be totally functional for us. There's a bus stop literally 50 ft from the apartment, with several buses each day to bigger towns like Trento, Arco, and Riva del Garda, from which you can reach anywhere else on a bus or train. We also had some excellent day trips by foot: over the hill to the nearby Lago di Cavedine and Pisoni Winery (SO GOOD); up and down the valley Cavedine sits in, where each town is about 1km apart and fun to walk through - and do some more wine tasting! There is also hiking accessible directly from Cavedine, and much more hiking accessible a bus ride away to any other town as a starting point. I did a fantastic, strenuous day hike to the peak of Monte Cornetto, which you can see from Cavedine, and it was one of my favorite days during our stay.
Italian mountainside beauty
Wonderful place for us.
We are from the middle of the USA so this was a very unique place for us. We very much enjoyed the old charm of the apartment building and the village and the surrounding region. It was all a feast for our eyes. The apartment is totally updated and very clean and comfortable. The terrace with its view of the village courtyard was a hi-lite for us. Our hosts were very hospitable and wanted to be sure we are comfortable. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit this part of Italy.
Ab vom Arco-Trubel, aber mitten im Kletterparadies
altes gewölbeartiges Gebäude, schön restauriert und modernisiert. Gute Ausstattung - Nette Vermieter - tolle Lage -Supermarkt fußläufig erreichbar - Dauer-Parkplatz nur 50 m weg
Wir waren nur zu Zweit, dafür war es sehr groß. Bis fünf Personen ( wohl im Wohnzimmer 3x?) ist die Wohnung ausgeschrieben - geht sicher auch, aber man sollte wissen, dass alle durch das Schlafzimmer zum Bad durchlaufen müssen :-) - Empfehlenswert
Cavedine is the largest town in the Valley of Lakes, is located exactly halfway (20 min.) Between Lake Garda, Monte Bondone and the capital, Trento, and offers numerous services (grocery stores, pharmacy, bank, post office, bar, hair salon, barber, children's playground, equipped paths, archeological, etc.). In short, it is the ideal place to spend a relaxing stay in contact with nature, but in a few minutes you can reach many of the main points of interest in Trentino (the country is also regularly served by public transport).
Many are also the sports that can be enjoyed directly in the village or in the vicinity: cycling, mountain biking, tennis, horseback riding, hiking (in various forms), hiking, climbing, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, hang gliding, paragliding, surfing, kitesurfing, motocross and trial. For some years the town hosts the time trial of "The Legendary Charly Gaul", for the qualification to the World for Cicloamatori UCI World Cycling Tour Championship.
We wait for a sporty holiday ... or relaxing!
