                                                                                          5 of 5
                                                                                          The villa is a beautiful old farmhouse located in the area of an historic battlefield near the village of San Martino, just south of Lake Garda. The property description is accurate. The villa itself has 5 large bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and was ideal for our party of 2 families (4 adults and 6 children), having plenty of room for us all. Unfortunately the bedrooms do not have air conditioning and although 4 of the rooms had fans they were rather warm at night. It has a large kitchen well equipped with pots and pans, crockery etc and all the usual appliances. There is a huge dining room. Outside the villa is set in spacious gardens and has a large pool with diving board which was a great size and depth. There is a lovely seating area outside under a pergola with a vine growing over it. Lovely Charlie the cat who belongs to the owner stays if the guests are happy for him to and we loved him. The villa is managed by Diego who was extremely helpful during our stay. He gave us lots of good advice about the area and when we had a problem getting Sky TV to work he came out straight away to try and sort it. As it couldn't be sorted during our stay he found a solution so that the children could watch films in the evening. Although the villa is rural it is less than 5 minutes drive from the motorway so has good links for travelling to Venice or Verona. Verona is about 30 minute drive away and Venice about 1.5 hours away although we went by train from Desezano del Garda railway station. Lake Garda itself and the resorts of Sirmione and Desanzano del Garda are a short drive away and all worth a visit. There is a large supermarket about 10 minutes drive away. The villa is surrounded by vineyards and there is a very good Winery right next door where wine tasting can be carried out and some very good local wine purchased. There are several other Winerys in the area. Within walking distance of the villa there are 3 local restaurants, one at the end of the drive which was very typically Italian which we visited and one a short walk up the road near the San Martino Tower ( a memorial tower for the battlefield) which was excellent. The San Martino Tower is also definitely worth a visit and there is a great view of the lake from the top. So to summarise, this is a great villa in a beautiful location, with great road links to local towns and Lake Garda and especially ideal for a large group or several families. Would definitely recommend it to friends.

It had everything you need except a kettle, if required. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and even had a perfect little Italian balcony complete with vine. 5 minute walk to public beach. 2 minutes to local bakery and cafes. Augusto could not be any more helpful. He did whatever was needed to help our stay run smoothly. Absolutely loved our stay and would not hesitate to return.
