The property was in a quiet location only 15 minute walk from town and 25 minutes from ferry terminal. Great connections from here to all lakeside towns. The property was clean, very comfortable and well appointed. The view of the lake was superb day and night. The garden was large with a lovely sun deck. Plenty of covered parking. Will definitely recommend. Our hosts were excellent. Kevin & Marion from Harpenden in UK

Renata & Federico were very friendly and welcoming. A lot of local information was made available to us and came in handy. The welcome basket was a nice touch and full of good useful products. Unfortunately the double bed was very hard for both of us and spoilt our sleep for most of our stay, hence the four stars. Nevertheless a very nice week in Salo, Italy. Linda & Alan Smith
