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.

Weather in Garda, Italy

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.

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.
