                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We've just returned from two weeks at this villa at the end of August / beginning of September. We were very impressed by the photos when we booked it - the reality is way better than the photos. It is an immaculate property, beautifully decorated, spacious and luxurious. The owner, Sergio, is an absolute gentleman and a pleasure to deal with. He met us to show us around the villa when we arrived and it is obvious he is very proud of it, and he has every right to be. There were four adults when we stayed, the villa would easily and comfortably accommodate six adults. We were lucky to have fantastic weather all the time we were there and so spent a lot of time outside. You are right next to a public beach with good facilities and your own access to the beach but in the grounds of the villa you are totally private. There is a wonderful restaurant / bar literally steps away from the villa. We ate there a few times and also had a number of takeaways from there too. There are also numerous restaurants within a few minutes drive. The villa is well located for exploring the area, there a number of ferry ports close by and we also drove into the mountains, around the lake (despite what we had heard about traffic congestion we had no problems driving around the lake) and to Verona which is an easy hours drive away. If you are considering this villa book it, you won't be disappointed.

We throughly enjoyed our stay and so did Mister Freddie, our little one year old Schnauzer. He spent all day chasing grasshoppers, I am not sure if there are any left, his little tail never stopped wagging. Chalet Venere exceeded our expectations. It's a beautiful luxury residence finished to a superb quality with a breathtaking room with a view. Alas, the bedding let the apartment down. Old. Worn. Mix mash of bedding more suited to a peasant/student living conditions than a villa at the exclusive Lake Garda. I slept not under such poor linen since a little boy at my Grandma's. But this is the only let down of Chalet Venere. We enjoyed seeing and hearing a working farm in action. Tractors, bale makers and the fresh smell of cut meadows gave the farm an authentic farmland feel and smell. The Senora welcoming us is brilliant and a lot of fun and speedily came to assist when so requested. All in all a highly recommended holiday retreat. Thank you. Willem A. Nel
