All three are within an hour and a half drive, meaning that you can explore the many treasures of art and culture which they hold in a day and return to the blissful atmosphere and stunning scenery of your Lake Garda accommodation in time to see the sun set over the Alps.

                        Wir verbrachten September 2014 sehr schöne Tage in diesem liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichteten Appartement. Für zwei Personen absolut perfekt. Durch den sonnigen Spätsommer konnten wir die Terrasse zum 2. Wohnzimmer machen. Von dort hatten wir einen schönen Blick auf den Gardasee. Das Appartement liegt ruhig in einer 300 Seelengemeinde, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es keine, für uns war das kein Problem. Unsere Kontaktperson Laura kennen wir schon von anderen Urlauben, Sie ist eine Perle, Sie klärt alles unkompliziert und schnell. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Jutta & Thomas
