Laura was a lovely host and made our stay a very comfortable one. She was very approachable and helpful.
The apartment was very well presented with lots of space both inside and outside, unusually having two outdoor sitting/dining areas, so that you could sit in the morning or evening sun. It is in a quiet area and has a gated entrance so very private.
The apartment was a little way out of town which was no problem as Riva del Garda has excellent, quiet off road cycle ways and there were city bikes provided with the apartment. Therefore we cycled into the lovely town centre during the day and evening thus having a largely car free holiday.
Our only complaint was that the guests upstairs were occasionally noisy, as the floors are tiled. It was difficult to make out from the photographs on the HomeAway site that there is an upstairs as well as a ground floor apartment.
Apart from that just needed a spatula or fish slice would have helped us to cook.
We would highly recommend Laura’s apartment and Riva del Garda which is very pretty, almost traffic free and an ideal base for cycling and mountain bike riding. Not to mention Lake Garda itself!
My family and I have just had the most relaxing holiday at Villa Lorena! Quite often when you book holiday accomodation you book a base, somewhere to sleep whilst you spend each day out exploring. Not Villa Lorena! This place is a home and we absolutely loved spending time here each day.
The 3 children were addicted to the good size pool and you couldn't tear is 4 adults away from the mesmerising view of the lake. We were truly spoilt and are already planning our return visit.
A couple of things that may be useful additions in future would be:
1. Better pillows, they are very mishapen and not very comfy to sleep on. After the first night, we ended up using the sofa cushions.
2. A bedding pack? We had to pay extra to the airline for a case, just to get all our bedding out. We would happily have paid extra for the linen to be provided at the villa.
3. Some fans. I appreciate air conditioning is an expensive installation but maybe a couple of fans to plug in would be useful.
All in All a fabulous holiday, with good clear communication from Christian. But the star of the show must be that view!
