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.

                          Wonderful villa with amazing pool & lake view

                          5 of 5
                          Just returned from a week here with 5 other adults. I can't recommend this place enough and Sergio was a fantastic host when we arrived early. Overall the villa is finished to a really high standard, especially the ground floor/upstairs. There are huge sliding glass doors leading to the pool and the garden so even when you're not outside you still get a great view of the lake. There's plenty of space for 6 adults, I guess 8 wouldn't be a problem either, assuming you spent most of your time outside. Around the property there are lots of little places to sit in the garden and some really comfy outdoor sitting and dining furniture by the pool, over-looking the lake. The villa has a private gate to the small beach on the lake, the beach can get very busy so it's far more enjoyable to stay in the garden of the villa and enjoy the view from there. If you have a car there's plenty of space to park it behind the electric gates. If you don't, the nearest grocery store is about a 30 minute walk in San Felice and it's a really nice walk to and from it. For ferries, you can walk to Portese which is about 40 minutes away. The bar/restaurant opposite the villa is brilliant, think we ate there 4 times in 1 week! A taxi to Salo is about €15-20 and between €35-50 for Desenzano, if you wish to take a train to Verona for example. You should get this booked immediately - it really is every bit as good as it looks in the pictures!

                          Stunning views/plenty of space/lovely pool

                          5 of 5
                          We spent a week at this property. The views are stunning - both during the day & at night. We were a party of 7 and there was plenty of room for us. The pool is a great asset and our party spent a lot of time in it. We're cricket fans and having SKY Sports meant we could see a couple of England ODI & 20/20 games which were on. There is also wi-fi - a must for all of our party. The villa is approx a 10 minute drive from Salo, which is lovely small town and on the ferry route for boats around Lake Garda. There is a good supermarket in Salo too - Italmarkt. We recommend this property to family groups/groups of friends.

                          bijzonder mooi huis aan het Gardameer

                          5 of 5
                          We zaten met ons gezin op de zolderverdieping, met lift, een zeer ruim appartement, wel wat donker door de kleine raampjes( net onder de dakrand). Voor elk appartement is er een zitje in de tuin. Wij hadden de boot mee en die lag bij de opening van de tuinmuur die grenst aan het Gardameer. De eigenaar is een zeer vriendelijke, rustige en behulpzame man. We hebben met onze 4 jongens ( 15 -18) een ontzettende fijne vakantie gehad.
