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.

Places to visit on holiday in Garda, Italy

A popular day trip for visitors to Garda is the neighbouring town of Bardolino, just 4km south along the shores of Lake Garda. Bardolino has a pebble beach, a decent selection of restaurants and a surprisingly vibrant nightlife for a relatively small town. Garda is also just 40km from the city of Verona, made famous by its Roman amphitheatre, love of opera and artistic heritage.

Weather in Garda, Italy

The best time to visit Garda is between early May and late October, when the average daily temperature is 25C, and the festivals of the region are in full swing. July and August are the hottest months, with peak temperatures edging over the 30C mark.

Flights to Garda, Italy

There are several destination airports to choose from when heading to Garda from the UK. The nearest option is Verona Airport (VRN), which receives a small selection of Thomson Airways and British Airways flights, and is 24km from Garda. An alternative is Brescia Airport (VBS), which receives budget flights via Ryanair, and is 32km from Garda.

Excellent apartment for 2

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay a lot. The apartment was comfortable, well equipped, with a much appreciated generous welcome pack. The building is a bit tired (from the 50s I think) but clean and functional. The complex is well located, with easy access to the promenade, just a few minutes walk from town. Bit of a climb to the pool, but worth it - surrounded by olive trees for welcome shade, and with a good bar/pizzeria to hand. And the sun terrace has plenty of sunbeds and parasols, if you don't fancy the climb to the pool. And Mauro is the best local manager you could hope for. Always attentive and helpful. Garda town proved a good base for us, both for local eateries and for walking, cycling, bus and ferry trips.

Good location with excellent views from the balcony

5 of 5
The accommodation is in a good location, easy walk to the centre of Garda. The photographs do not do justice to the property which has all the amenities you require plus a few additional touches. The view from the balcony is outstanding and there is also the use of the roof top. The air conditioning was a bonus in the heat. Mauro was efficient from booking to checking out and very helpful.

Central, spacious apartment

5 of 5
We spent two weeks in this apartment in September. It was very clean with everything we needed. It was unseasonably hot while we were there but the apartment had air conditioning and with balconies on each side we always had somewhere comfortable to sit. The apartment is in a very convenient location, five minutes walk to the bus station and lake with numerous restaurants and shops nearby. The owner is a very friendly, helpful lady who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. I would highly recommend this apartment.
