The apartment is on the first floor of a building located only 500 mt away from the lake and the beaches. The apartment is about 50 square meters. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom with shower, a large dining room with a fully equipped kitchen and a great roof terrace for eating and relaxing. There is also a private parking spot available.
In the garden you'll find the big shared swimming pool.
We stayed 10 Days with 2 Kids at the Apartment. It was very nice, the Staff (Alessandra) was very friendly and helpful. The Apartment is cood equipt and gives you a nice feeling. We will come back!
On arrival we were initial impressed with the location of this villa! Literally 5 mins to Garda town. We were met immediately on arrival an from start to finish the service was brilliant.
The apartment itself is gorgeous, all rooms kitted out with everything you could possibly need. All rooms good size especially the main bedroom.
Can't rate it enough - our best ever holiday for location, cost and apartment
Well equipped apartment for a family of four. Short walk to the centre of Garda and conveniently placed for Verona and Riva del Garda. Many restaurants to choose from, various shops and ferry terminal to reach other islands.
The apartment had magnificent view of the lake and the mountains. There is a pool, which we couldn't use as it was out of season, but perfect for summer. Quiet location.
Quite a long trip from Venice airport though involving a coach, a train and then a taxi! Well worth it and the children really enjoyed it.
Fin ferielejlighed, som har alt det der er behov. Eneste lille ridse i lakken er den manglende aircondition (den er dog præinstalleret, så det er blot de sidste stumper, som skal på plads). Får udlejer det på plads, så bliver det ikke meget bedre!
Parco Giardino Sigurtà
The town of Garda became important - and probably gave its name to the lake - because of the important strategic position it occupied on the southeastern shores.
Long before that however the people of the late Bronze Age had left evidence of their existence in this area and graves and etchings have been discovered in the area of the town and surrounding hillsides.
The Ostrogoths were the first to build a fortification on the hill to the south of Garda, the "Rocca", and were followed by other invaders until the fortress and town below came under Venetian control and became the headquarters of the administration on the lake. Influences of the Venetians can still be seen in parts of the old town.
The Palazzo dei Capitano is a Gothic palace on the lake front and the square in front of the building was once the harbour before being filled in. Nowadays it is one of the busy squares full of tables for eating, drinking and people-watching.
Tourism in Garda began at the start of the 20th century but really took off in the 1950s, when the area on the eastern side of the lake became known as the "Riviera of Olives". In those days, the most important nation for tourism was the Netherlands - however they have long since been overtaken by the Germans.
Tourism hasn't been the only bread-winner however: the hinterlands are filled with olive groves and vineyards while the important summer festivals have much to do with the central place of fishing in the original culture.
