Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental at Sirmione, Lake Garda, Italy your home away from home

Sirmione is a delightful town on the southwest shore of Lake Garda in northeast Italy. It sits on a two mile peninsula which juts out into the lake itself and the still waters reflect its pretty image. Fondly known as the "Jewel of the Lake", Sirmione has rambling narrow streets crammed with tiny shops and cafés. Stroll the waterfront and dine out in the many trattorias and pizzerias in the town. A holiday home in Sirmione makes an excellent base for exploring the scenic area around Lake Garda.

There are several vineyards around Lake Garda including one near the Campground La Quercia. There is a wine stall here run by a delightful old man and you can taste the local wine before buying a bottle or two.

There is also a 3D theater providing an IMEX experience, complete with special glasses.

Attractive and comfortable apartment in a perfect location.

5 of 5
We stayed for 11 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious, very clean, well-equipped and comfortable. We used the gorgeous pool and had it to ourselves during the day. We liked the quiet location and were glad not to be staying in the hustle and bustle of the centre of Sirmione. We walked a lot and used the buses as we didn't have a car. There are lots of lovely restaurants nearby for eating out or having a drink by the lakeside, but we also cooked and eat on the apartment balcony. The owner is very helpful and gave us lots of very good information on everything from local vineyards (enjoyed the wine tastings!) to ferries and day trips. Very pleased we chose this apartment.
