The apartment is situated in a quiet residential area about 500m from the southern lake shore in the heart of Lugana di Sirmione, with numerous bars, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Situated on the first floor of a private residential complex, a swimming pool is shared with other residents within the private grounds.

The apartment backs onto a vineyard of which you can buy the wine from the local fruit market. There are local bike hire shops and we recommend venturing out into the country to sample the local agritourism farms for lovely long lunches.

There are many ways to get around whilst visiting this area, by boat from Sirmione, train from Desenzano, Peschiera and by car which you can hire locally. Line buses to Brescia and Verona stop a few minutes walk away. Whether visiting the stylish city of Milan, relaxing in the nearby spa, or walking the historic towns and countryside, Appartamento Marini offers an excellent and tranquil base for all your activities.

The apartment is very family friendly and kitted out for children with useful items such as moses basket, travel cot, high chair, microwave bottle steriliser, hand blender, baby bath, and toys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had a fabulous 3 weeks. Your apartment was fantastic, nothing to fault and the pool was used every day! We had a mix of weather but we didn't let that stop us exploring the area and the lake. We favoured Pescheria and also hired a boat from there one of the days. We never had a bad meal nor bottle of wine whilst there and would definitely return to the area in the future.' - Louise Clarke



'We has a great time and your apartment was lovely. The weather was very hot and the kids loved the pool, which we had almost exclusive use of! It was our first summer holiday in Italy although we have been skiing in Livigno previously but we'll definately be back.' - Thanks and regards Julie.



'We had an absolutely brilliant time during our time in Italy. The apartment was just what we needed. Centrally located, within easy distance to the Lake and surrounding areas including Milan, Verona and Venice in particular.' - Margaret Murphy

Or visit one of the local well know vineyards which offer wine tasting. Each time we visit our apartment there always seems to be something new to discover in the area, and on our last visit we stumbled across some of the agro-tourism farms that have started up in the area. We spent a number of wonderful afternoons cycling through the countryside to enjoy a lovely long lunch surrounded by the vineyards that produced the wine we were drinking. There’s even an agro-tourism dairy farm nearby which a local recommended for the best ice cream and cheese in the area.

Attractive and comfortable apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 11 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious, very clean, well-equipped and comfortable. We used the gorgeous pool and had it to ourselves during the day. We liked the quiet location and were glad not to be staying in the hustle and bustle of the centre of Sirmione. We walked a lot and used the buses as we didn't have a car. There are lots of lovely restaurants nearby for eating out or having a drink by the lakeside, but we also cooked and eat on the apartment balcony. The owner is very helpful and gave us lots of very good information on everything from local vineyards (enjoyed the wine tastings!) to ferries and day trips. Very pleased we chose this apartment.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week and although it was very hot having the pool was a great asset as it only appeared to be used at weekends so we had sole use at other times. The apartment was very clean and spacious with just a short walk to the lake and a beautiful lakeside walk to Sirmione. We hired a car and visited the beautiful countryside around the lakes and we also visited Venice by train. It was very helpful to have all the information which we received before the visit so we were able to plan ahead. A great holiday, highly recommended!

Lovely apartment and a great location for a short break

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent four days at this apartment and had a fantastic time. It has a great location with just a short walk to some lovely restaurants. We hired a car and used the apartment as our base for visiting lots of pretty lakeside towns and with Verona only a 30min drive away, it was perfect for a weekend get away. The apartment itself is lovely and clean and had everything we needed and Antonio was very helpful with information before we arrived. I would definitely recommend staying here for a nice weekend break and we plan to return again next year.

Fantastic apartment, superb location

  • 5 of 5

Well we have just had a fantastic 4 day trip to Italy and with this apartment as your base you can't go wrong. The location is brilliant, a short 5 min drive to Sirmione, 30 mins from Verona, 15 mins from a huge market on the tuesday just to name a few. Lake Garda itself was only a 10 minute walk from the accommodation and there are plenty of shops and restaurants. The apartment itself was well equipped and clean. We had 4 adults and it was very comfortable. Lovely balcony which catches the sun. Plenty of parking. Just everything you need to base yourself for a great holiday. Antonio the owner has been more than helpful and very quick to respond to any queries. The information he sent us was brilliant and we went off most of his recommendations for days out etc.

Overall fantastic apartment,thank you for letting us stay x

Great size and spotlessly clean

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent 6 nights with my partner and toddler son. The appartment was spotlessly clean and excellently equipped especially for young families. Located within 10 minute walk to great breakfast and deli shops plus excellent pizza spot for dinner. Well located for exploring Lake Garda we managed a trip to monte baldo, Bardolino, Sirmione and a fantastic bike ride to Borghetto. Would recommend.

Fantastic spacious apartment in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious, well equipped for a family of 5 apartment located in a small, friendly, very well presented residential area of Lugana. Within 5-10 mins walking distance of many fabulous restaurants, supermarket, Lake front & Sirmione.

Sirmione is an absolute must, one of the most beautiful places I have visited recently with the castle, the beautiful streets, shops, cafes, & ice cream shops, a very special place.

Would definitely recommend hiring bikes, this costs around 10 Euro's per person per day but is a fantastic way to see Lake Guarda & the children it, especially stopping regularly to cool off in the lake.

Verona which is only 20 mins away by car is a definite recommendation & also Venice.

We absolutely loved Sirmione, the lake and the apartment and will most definitely be planning on returning again.
