Perfect location on Lake Garda close to the fabulous town of Salo

5 of 5
I have just returned from a fantastic holiday with my wife and 2 daughters. We stayed at Villa Angela for 8 nights and were completely blown away with the property. Irene, the owner, stayed in a separate part of the villa for part of our stay and was very helpful in answering our questions and gave us some great ideas for days out. The property itself is magical and the location right on Lake Garda simply cannot be beaten. We enjoyed breakfasts in the garden and evening barbecues on the massive terrace overlooking the lake. The beautiful town of Salo is a 10-15 minute gentle stroll away and has an array of shops and restaurants that line the very scenic promenade (Lunga Lago) which is the longest one on Lake Garda. We hired a car for the duration of our stay and arranged this before flying out from the UK. The drive from Verona airport was approx 45mins on the A4 Autostrada to Salo which cost just under 5 Euros. There is ample parking directly outside the villa and I would definitely recommend hiring a car to see as much as possible of this picturesque region. Besides Salo which we loved, other places that we visited and would recommend are; Limone, Sirmione and Malcesine. We will definitely be returning again and would like to thank Irene for making our stay absolutely perfect.
