About Thomas & Jenny -Residence Corte Ferrari-

We are a young couple working in the tourism business since 2004. We always try to do our best to fulfill our guests' needs and make their holiday unforgettable.

We own the full residence and we are happy to help you find the best apartment for you and your family!

Thomas & Jenny -Residence Corte Ferrari- purchased this house in 1949

Why Thomas & Jenny -Residence Corte Ferrari- chose Moniga del Garda

We restored Casa Petra e Franco as it' s one of the oldest buildings in Moniga del Garda about 15th Century.

We lived here till May 2006, then we decided to restore another part of the property and to let other people enjoy this fantastic house!

We love so much living here as you are close to the small center of Moniga, but with no buildings in front of you, only vineyard, olive trees and the lake!

Even if we were both born in this area, we should be used to such a nice panorama, but we still get exicite when we see it!

Then in general Moniga is fantastic as you out of the crowd but close to Desenzano's services. From here you can visit Venice, Verona, Mantova, all the lake villages.

What makes this house unique

We consider unique Casa Petra e Franco as:

- we used to live here, so there is our touch!

- it is perfectly located, town center is only 50 meters and lake 400 meters.

- even if the property is in a central location, it has views over the lake which others can only imagine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Jenny and Thomas,

Sorry for not writing sooner.

We had a fabulous holiday at Casa Petra e Franco. The apartment is superb - very spacious and very clean with all requirements.

The complex at Corte Ferrari is beautiful and really well maintained. You seem to have thought of everything.

The location is spectacular with beautiful views over the neighbouring vineyard leading down to the lake and further on to Sirmione, Desenzano and beyond.

B. and I really enjoyed the wine tasting in the big house.

You were lovely hosts and all the family agree that we will return to Lake Garda and to Corte Ferrari in the very near future (if not in next year, we will definitely return in the year after).

It was one of the best holidays we have had. The weather was so good during our two weeks.

Best wishes to you both for your complexes at Corte Ferrari and Relais Rosa dei Venti.

Many thanks again.'

'Dear Thomas, just a note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday at Moniga.

great location and responsive personell

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in Casa Petra and Franco in August 2017.

The location is excellent and close to all cafes and town center. We also appreciate that it has municipal park right across the street from the property. Our children liked it a lot. There is also playground on the property, which was useful for us.

We enjoyed the pool . It was clean and in good order.

I appreciate Valeria was quick to respond to our needs.

We had a good family vacation there.

Big thank you to Thomas, Jenny and the team for all their support,

we were a little uncertain regarding the standard & quality ,

but I can report that my concerns were otally unfounded.

Valerie was so helpful at the check in, and the information

was also really good value.

I can only say good things and recommend the experience,

there seemed some nice friendly people staying there too,

but our family really enjoyed our apartment ,

plus the discreet management, which was appreciated!

will definitely book again -- thank you!

A lovely, family-friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Corte Ferrari and the location suited us perfectly. It is an area that is not overrun by tourists but also not isolated and lonely. Our son had a wonderful time hanging out with other children he met at the pool. We loved the fact that we could walk to the town center in 5 minutes and have a nice meal at a local restaurant, eat a gelato or drink a glass of wine, yet we also had the option to pick up some groceries and make a meal in our apartment. The staff was friendly and helpful, the pool area was clean and well kept-up, and the apartment was spacious and comfortable. The lake is a bit further away than we anticipated, but it is an easy walk and we didn't mind. We rented a boat and enjoyed one day seeing the area from the water. Overall we were thrilled with our stay and would definitely come back!

Einfach Klasse

  • 5 of 5

Unser Haus war genau den Angaben im Online-Inserat entsprechend und sogar noch besser. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und sauber. Wir fühlten uns rundum gut aufgehoben und betreut. Die Angestellten der Rezeption waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir empfehlen dieses Feriendomizil auf jeden Fall weiter. Es gibt in der Nähe einen kleinen Supermarkt mit sehr netter Bedienung, eine Bäckerei und viele gute Restaurants. Es war ein gelungener Urlaub und wir waren bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal dort.

Our residence is only 5 mins walk away from the fantastic beach, where you can swim, rent a boat or pedal boat.


Nearest airports to our residence are Brescia (Ryanair) 45 mins, Verona (BA) 60 mins and Milan Bergamo (Ryanair) 80 mins. Nearest railway station 15 min is in Desenzano del Garda.

You can stay at Corte Ferrari also without a car,small shops are not too far,there is a bus stop,you can call a taxi or to use the ferry.

If holiday means relaxing by the pool, having some nice dinners in the restaurants, then you can avoid to hire a car. If you want to visit the area, we suggest to hire a car.


The railway station and motorway A4 are only 20 mins away. You can take the train in Desenzano del Garda that is only 10-15 minutes from here or drive to the following places: Venice (169 km), Milan (130km), Verona (50km) and Mantova (60km). Or visit all the lovely lake villages. If you have kids, we recomend Gardaland, MovieLand, Medieval times, Caneva World. They are 45 minutes from Corte Ferrari! Nearest golf course is 15 mins.

Further Details:

The centre of Moniga del Garda is dominated by the medieval castle, which nowadays contains homes. As well as its historical value, Moniga also offers excellent facilities including a bank, post-office, and tourist information office. The surrounding area is known as The Valtenesi and is an area dominated by terraces of olive trees and vineyards. The region is dotted with castles, villas and small villages and is renowned for its olive oil and wine, especially Chiaretto and Rosso! Make a tour of the local countryside renting a bike in a local shop. Or take a short stroll to the beach where you can swim or hire a boat (rappydrive). The south of Lake Garda has plenty for all the family to see and do, so why not take a trip to Gardaland, the largest theme park in Italy or one of the many water parks (Caneva, Alto Mincio) or botanical gardens (Parco Natura Viva, Giardino Sigurtà). There is plenty to do if you love water sports and we even have golf courses close by. Moniga del Garda is also an excellent base if you want to take a day-trip to Venice, Milan, Verona and Mantova. Why not visting "Il vittoriale" in Gardone or "Santa Giulia Museum" in Brescia? And to relax yourself, you can spend one day at the Aquaria in Sirmione: the best spa of the area is only 20 minutes from Moniga del Garda!
