Make a holiday rental home or villa in Garda, Italy your home away from home

Many people will recognise the name Garda from Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy, and they would be correct in assuming that the town lies on its shores. It is not, however, a principle town in the region, and in fact is but a small and peaceful commune, and actually one of the smallest towns in the entire province, being home to just 4,000 residents. Garda, Verona should not be confused with its namesake in the Brescia Province.

Things to do in Garda, Italy

The interesting and attractive town of Garda sits on the eastern shores of Lake Garda, and offers plenty to see and do despite its small size. Lake Garda is a fascinating and aesthetically stunning place, where families can enjoy water sports such as water skiing, windsurfing and sailing amongst a rich and varied backdrop. Walking, hiking and mountain climbing are just some of the many other activities on offer in the region.

Within Garda itself are a number of old sites, with the town itself being centuries old but still well preserved. Once a fortified town, Garda has narrow, winding streets that are home to places of interest such as the Captain’s Palace – a 14th century Venetian palace, as well as the 18th century Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Another site worth visiting is the Rock of Garda, which looms 300 metres over the town, and offers panoramic views of the lake and surrounding countryside from its summit.

Garda has a decent selection of shops, where you can pick up the local specialities such as wines and olive oils. Nightlife is fun without being over-the-top, with most of the bars situated along the promenade area. In terms of restaurants, pizzerias and seafood joints rule the roost in this part of the world, though you can always self-cater in your Garda holiday rental apartment if you fancy something a little different.

We already felt as if we knew our host as there had been several email exchanges between us. Mauro was just what we expected; friendly, knowledgeable and hospitable. He gave us a tour of the complex and the surrounding area and looked after our every need. The apartment complex looks a bit dated but our apartment 118 was clean, spacious enough for 3 and had everything, I mean everything, we could possibly need for our stay. A fridge stocked with a section of drinks, a bowl of fresh fruit, condiments, towels, washing up liquid, fresh coffee, shower gel and plenty of toilet rolls to name but a few. The apartment was lovely and cool with air conditioning and there was a TV, laptop and Xbox. Our son was pleased with the WiFi connection so he could keep in touch with his girlfriend. The pool and pizzeria is reached by a short uphill walk, both have fantastic views.Always plenty of space in and around the pool. The lake can be reached via a private underpass and is lovely for an early evening dip. Garda itself is a very pleasant 15 minutes walk along the promenade. Set in very pleasant surroundings, a great location and a wonderful host, what more could you ask for.

I hope it will not be long before we come again!

We were welcomed by Barbara and shown around the apartment. There was a folder in the apartment containing useful information about the local area. We liked the large outdoor space set in a garden area. This is a quiet peaceful location. The swimming pool was excellent. Harald was friendly, easy and efficient to deal with and provided us with any information which we asked for promptly.
