The apartment was very clean and comfortable and we would certainly stay there again when we next holiday in Riva del Garda.

                                                                                                      We spent almost a fortnight at Residence Toli and enjoyed it very much; we would like to have stayed longer if our schedule had permitted. The accommodation consists of two modern three storey buildings, one set behind the other, with a service corridor linking them where the site office, a lift and a washing machine (which needs a 2 euro coin) can be found. We stayed in a ground floor apartment with a double room, a twin room and a bed settee in the kitchen/diner so it therefore slept 6. The curtains were thin, but we could achieve a blackout by using the shutters. The kitchen was well equipped in continental style; this meant small cups and glasses and we had to ask for a kettle, but one was produced immediately on request. There was no conventional oven, but the microwave had a grill. The TV showed Italian and German channels and there was no DVD player, but we had taken one with us. The site is screened from the road by a hedge (the quickest way to find it is to look for the recycling bins on the pavement) but as well as parking, there is BBQ equipment, several sun loungers and childrens play items in the garden, and a table tennis table indoors. The village centre is only a few hundred yards away: the older part is to your left, and the newer part, together with access to the lake, on your right. There are various places to eat in both and the lake area also has the local Coop supermarket which sells a wide range of non-food items to assist those camping nearby. The Coop also has a multilingual cash machine and a large car park and opens daily until 8pm in high season (additionally, a Eurospin supermarket on the main road in the next village of Bezzecca sells some different items). The lake is very clean and there was a lifeguard on duty for swimmers; several types of small boats can be hired including pedaloes with slides fitted. The mountains surrounding the area, together with the lake, provide beautiful scenery and the temperature in late August/early September was at or above 30 degrees celsius most days. Most people we dealt with knew some English. We also visited Venice (the longest trip - 2.5 hours), Verona, Brescia and Trento. Be aware that most roads in the area are slow, with low speed limits and no overtaking signs common even when you're not going round a mountain. Riva del Garda is a traffic black spot and we began diverting via Arco to get to the autostrada. We had a great time and would go again.

The place offers a fantastic view of the lake and the mountains. Photographs do not show how it looks in reality. This view can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Matteo should take charge for each hour enjoy the view :)). The region offers a number of attractions. Everywhere you will meet a group of people on bikes and trekking lovers. Beautiful beaches and charming towns, small lake in the mountains, complete the picture of the region. Matteo and his wife are very likeable hosts. They were able to create a friendly atmosphere. They are very helpful and are a mine of information about the region. I recommend the place for a holiday.
