Laura was a lovely host and made our stay a very comfortable one. She was very approachable and helpful.
The apartment was very well presented with lots of space both inside and outside, unusually having two outdoor sitting/dining areas, so that you could sit in the morning or evening sun. It is in a quiet area and has a gated entrance so very private.
The apartment was a little way out of town which was no problem as Riva del Garda has excellent, quiet off road cycle ways and there were city bikes provided with the apartment. Therefore we cycled into the lovely town centre during the day and evening thus having a largely car free holiday.
Our only complaint was that the guests upstairs were occasionally noisy, as the floors are tiled. It was difficult to make out from the photographs on the HomeAway site that there is an upstairs as well as a ground floor apartment.
Apart from that just needed a spatula or fish slice would have helped us to cook.
We would highly recommend Laura’s apartment and Riva del Garda which is very pretty, almost traffic free and an ideal base for cycling and mountain bike riding. Not to mention Lake Garda itself!
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.
