This is a fantastic apartment full of Italian charm and never before have we had such a warm welcome from a host. The apartment is extremely comfortable, fully equippped, very clean and was really spacious for the two of us. The swimming pool is fantastic and was an added bonus - it is immaculately clean and was never busy during our stay. Perfect for a quick dip or relaxing in the sun on the private sun beds.
The owner, Giovanna, is absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough to help us. She helped with directions to the apartment, looking out for us on arrival and was full of useful information about the area and provided lots of great recommendations. We had regular contact with Giovanna throughout our stay and she took a genuine interest in what we were up to. Some supplies were also provided including coffee and prosecco which were much appreciated!
The apartment is in a great location, the train station is 5 mins walk and the town centre is a 15 mins walk. Desenzano itself is a fabulous buzzing town and great for people watching. We found lots of lovely restaurants and bars, our favourite being the Il Tagliere wine bar and Corte Pozzi restaurant, both part of Hotel Alessi. We visited the many beautiful towns round the lake and also took the fast train to Venice. Verona is also a short drive away and the open air opera was an amazing experience.
Overall this is one of the best apartments we have ever stayed in, we loved it from the moment we stepped in the front door. It felt like a second home and we were genuinely sad to leave. We will definitely be back and couldn't recommend it highly enough!
