About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 sofabed, 2 full bathroom, sleeps 7

Our Home: Tower: Entrance and small sitting room. A charming winding staircase leads to the pretty double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. The windows of the tower give a lovely view on the Lake and on the garden below. Continue up the winding staircase to the second twin bedroom and up again to the top of the Tower: enjoy the stunning view from this terrace: the Lake, Monte Baldo.

Connected to the Tower by a perfumed and lovely lemon garden is a dependence: here you will find a large and comfortable sitting room, with a living area and one sofa bed for two people. Next to the living room there is a large and fully equipped kitchen, plus a bathroom with a shower and a washing machine. Kitchen, living room and bathroom are all located on the ground floor.

The Garden: Our lovely romantic garden has a terrace with tables and chairs looking out to the Lake: from this position you can enjoy spectacular sunsets.

OUR HISTORY: The name Lazise has its origins in “Lacus”, which means “village by the Lake”.

This is a very ancient town: the area has been lived in since the iron era. Many remains of stilts have been found, and what has been found of the Roman times shows how Lazise, also blessed by its fortunate geographical position, had in fact become very important.

In Medieval Times it became so important, that a castle, walls, and moat were built.

During the XIII and XIV Lazise belonged to the Scaligeri – who completed the walls of the castle.

The Tower, opposite the Lake, has always had a great strategic importance.

Thanks to its privileged position, in recent times it was used as a watch tower, and also as a shooting lodge.

NEAR THE TOWER: Parks, Gardens, and Theme Parks

Villa dei Cedri, located in a 17th century Villa in the near village of Colà has Thermal waters, and swimming pools.

Giardino Sigurtà : is a beautiful Italian Garden 15 Km away (in Valeggio sul Mincio).

Parco Zoo- where you can enjoy a safari in the middle of African animals.

Theme Parks: Gardaland, Caneva World, and Movie Land (all 5 Km away).

Unique! Highlight of my stay in Italy!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so unique, it is literally a once in a lifetime stay! We were traveling as 2 couples. It is 2 separate buildings as described. Each of us stayed in a separate building. The place is extremely large and we only saw each other when we met for meals. The tower gave us an excellent view of the Lake. We most likely would not have known about Lazise if it wasn't for this home. Everything is as pictured. One block from the pedestrian area of shops, restaurants, bars! A block from the ferry stop! 2 blocks from the bus stops. Directly across the street from the lake. Saw some wonderful sunsets. We cooked out 2 nights and ate in the beautiful garden. We had trouble with the exterior lights but the owner was very quick to respond and fixed them for us! Only the tower and the garden gets internet. One morning we woke up to find this incredible market outside our gate! Thank you Anna!

Fab property - Standards rather low

  • 3 of 5

We were delighted to realise, after spotting this amazing property on a previous trip to Lazise, that we could actually rent it. It is indeed a wonderful property.

However the fittings need updating or a thorough clean. The linen is WELL worn and sadly didn't feel "fresh". Everything we touched didn't feel clean, apart from the glasses/crockery.

Because we found the incredibly narrow stairs too much for us, but understandable that they are there, we decided to sleep on the sofa beds in the sitting room. They seriously need re-newing.

We LOVE Lake Garda and are delighted we had a chance to stay in such a historic building, but for a little more care it could have been wonderful. PS We DIDN'T take our rubbish to the Communal bins, down the road, as instructed. We bagged it and left it all outside - at the back.

Great House / Spectacular Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is rustic but comfortable. Two bedrooms (shared bathroom) are in the separate tower, with additional foldout beds (converted from lounges) in the main house with kitchen and additional bathroom. We were a family with 2 adults and 3 teenage children. The teenagers loved the tower bedrooms and we adults used the converted sofa bed in the main house.

The location is absolutely beautiful .... a very pretty little town with plentiful local restaurants if you want to eat out and supermarkets close by if you want to buy produce to cook at home. You are close to the freeways if you want to travel further afield sightseeing. Also close to all the theme parks.

Loved our stay in Lazise and would not hesitate to rebook this house. Thankyou for your hospitality Anna.

Perfect Location and Quirky

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday. The location was perfect for the lake and the town of Lazise. We did not use the hire car while we we there. It was easier to catch the boat across the lake. The property was beautiful and quirky - lots of passing tourists looking through the gates. We were very happy to just relax in the gardens most of our stay and go to one of the many nearby restaurants or bars in the evening. It was clean and on the whole well maintained but basic as we were already informed of by the owner. It had everything we needed but it was very hot while we were there so air conditioning would have been helpful (but maybe not possible in such an historic property). On the whole it was a great property to stay in.

Fabulous holiday accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Lake Garda and it was just as beautiful as we thought it would be. But staying in such a fabulous home really put the cherry on the cake. The Tower was a totally unique and beautiful place to sta and the location of it could not be better. It is literally on the waterfront and just a few yards from the centre of Lazise.

Loved staying here and would definitley recommend it.

Lazise is one of the most charming towns of the oriental side of the Lake Garda, also known as “ The Olive Riviera”. The climate is very mild, and this enables Mediterranean trees such as olives, palms, and lemons, to grow with great ease.

There are many routes in the hills around Lake Garda, and on Monte Baldo (suitable also for mountain bikes). Take the new panoramic sky lift up to the top of Monte Baldo, from the Village of Malcesine: and from the top of the mountain (1760 meters) enjoy the breath taking view over the Lake. There is a lovely route along the River Adige

There are many Golf Courses, Parks, Gardens, and Theme Parks (Gardaland, Caneva World, Movieland) in the nearby.

The city of Verona is 20 km away, Venice is 100 km away

Golf: Golf Courses: Peschiera (10 Km), Ca’Degli Ulivi (15 km), Sommacampagna and Pozzo Moretto (20 km), Sirmione (20 km).
