About Aideen Connolly
My name is Aideen and I've been living in Italy since 1993. I live here with my Italian husband, our two children, Luigi (15 yrs) and Liam (12 yrs), my brother-in-law and his wife. Each year, in November, we harvest our olives and produce our own olive oil. We love living here, my husband was born and grew up here so we couldn't imagine living anywhere else. We enjoy gardening, like having our own fresh vegetables, fruit and a daily supply of organic eggs.
Why Aideen Connolly chose Roè Volciano
We were lucky to inherit our property, which we have been improving on, each year, since 2000. I love this area because we're so close to the lake but at the same time we can fully relax in our garden, away from all the hustle and bustle. We haven't built walls around our house because we prefer the view we have, fields, olive trees and Agneto, the tiny Roman village just opposite.
What makes this Apartment unique
The outdoor space is definitely a bonus. There are no other houses near us; we're completely surrounded by fields. I've always loved the idea of having my own garden so this is really heaven for me or to quote a guest: "it's a small piece of paradise"!

A Lovely and welcoming stay
My Family had a great relaxing stay at Aideen's property. The accommodation had everything we needed and a great base to start from each day. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
Thank you Jamie and Alison, it was a pleasure having you!
Lovely little place, set back from lake, but only minutes from all the action in Salo. Super friendly owners, lovely apartment and grounds. Would definitely return!
We had a wonderful week here-it's a beautiful and secluded setting but conveniently located just a short drive from all facilities. You can also walk in 20-30mins to the lake front. The weather was glorious all week and despite it being 30 degrees outside everyday, we were cool and comfortable in the house both day and night-even with the windows closed. It's a spacious property with privacy should you require and it had all you would need in a self catering property. Our children loved the freedom of the pool and gardens and really enjoyed playing with the animals!
Aideen was friendly and helpful-she even provided candles for our daughters birthday cake! We recommend this property for those of you looking for a peaceful and relaxing break in beautiful surroundings, with the tourist areas within driving distance if you want them.
Thank you so much Kate for the lovely review.
Modern comfortable apartment in a lovely setting
This is a delightful apartment with attentive hosts, the apartment is well equipped with every thing you need. Even though there is an apartment next door it is still private. The surrounding areas are wonderful to visit
Super Lake Garda getaway
First time using Owners Direct and we feel like we came up trumps with this holiday hangout. With 2 toddlers it was the perfect place, safe for the kids and they just loved being able to wander about with the chickens and dog and other pets. In a beautiful spot and nice to be able to get away from the 'busyness' of the Lake front. Apartment was cool, very clean and homely. Hosts made us feel immediately relaxed and at home. Definitely recommend this to others. Thank you!
Thank you for such a wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you stay here with us and glad to hear you enjoyed it so much. Please say hi to your husband and your gorgeous little boys.
We have just spent a lovely family holiday at the Margherita apartment. The location was perfect - peaceful and relaxing yet near enough to Salo for shopping, eating out and visiting the lake. The apartment was spotlessly clean, comfortable and had everything we needed - the owners even kindly supplied some of their own produce including a bottle of delicious olive oil, a great pity we only had hand luggage so were unable to purchase some to take home! A big 'thank you' to Maria & family (Margherita) and Aideen & family (Lavanda) for making us feel so welcome. Would certainly recommend this property and hope to return.
