The apartment is part of a nicely renovated building in gated development and is clean and comfortable and ideal for 4 people though would be crampt with 6 if using sofa bed. Well equiped with dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, and oven worked well for those self catering. Brits may wish to take a can opener and oven mits and tea pot if so inclined. Useful to have pool towels provided and pool is large and shallow and quiet most of the week as many residents appear to be weekend visitors. Garage for the car is also useful as car is kept secure and cool. Located in the old part of Polpenazze the apartment is close to a few small shops including a very nice Gelateria. It is quite a busy place and there is some road noise and also the nearby clock tower chimes every half hour throughout the day and night but you get used to both after a few days.
Our host Corrado provided a tour of the facilities and relevant information about the property. He also suggested local places to visit and advice on local supermarkets. Enjoyed a visit to Venice, and to the Palace at Mantova which he suggested. Also very accommodating with booking and dates we wanted.
The house is in the most stunning location, and it is even better in reality. It is within easy walking distance of Salo, which has lots of restaurants and shops.
The inside of the house is sympathetically furnished to the period, and has a shabby chic feel through out. Some rentals can feel very crammed in, but this has a fantastic open feel and virtually every room has a magnificent view of the lake, which is very easily accessed at the bottom of the garden.
We had gone with plans to visit many places, but the house was so beautiful that we stayed there for the majority of the week.
Irene the owner is very helpful, and welcomes you all into her home.
I would say the only negative for us was that whilst there was WIFI it was only good in a few spots in the house, and we were travelling with 3 teenagers. But from the adults point of view it was bliss.
I'd certainly go there again - just leave the teenagers at home next time!
