Two-bedroom first-floor apartment with south-facing garden
We are letting a sweet self-contained apartment which is part of a charming brick-built family house on the outskirts of Bardolino on Lake Garda, in the lower half of the 'Riviera of Olive Groves', where the lake is at its widest and the Mediterranean vegetation bountiful. Hills and vines always make pretty scenery, but there is none prettier than those of Bardolino, facing the lake and the sunset, a serene pattern of vineyards, olive trees, cypresses, castles and Veronese villas in pale pink stone, set on gentle slopes, lit up by the shimmer of lake-reflected light. It deserves to be called charming, and produces a wine to match. The apartment is generously furnished and equipped, having previously been used by members of our family. It has a large terrace wth a view of the lake.
The Area: The location of the apartment is ideal for touring the Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige regions, and for visiting many of the great cities of north Italy: Verona (half an hour's driving time), Vicenza, Mantova, Trento, Bergamo (1 hour), Venice and Milan (2 hours) and Bologna (2.5 hours). There are wonderful walks, from strolls along the lake shore to Lazise, Bardolino and Garda, to hikes in the surrounding hills and climbs in the mountains (perhaps with the help of a cable-car). You can hire bikes and scooters, pedalos and motor-boats.
Finally, if, like me, you worry about the effect of flying on our environment, there is a very pleasant train route, at least from the south of England. Take the Eurostar to Paris Nord, cross to Gare de Bercy, and take the night train to Verona arriving 7.25am. For other train routes, see www.seat61.com
Entertainment: Take a steamer to visit some of the other little towns on the lake, including the famous Sirmione, or spend a day at a theme park such as Gardaland, Caneva World of Water or Safari Zoo, all just a few miles away. Historic gardens, castles, vineyards, cafe's and restaurants to suit every budget - what's missing here? Only noisy traffic: no-one but residents drive on the road that leads to the property.
Before you leave this page:: A thorough clean of the apartment between visitors is included in the price.
Arrangements and instructions are all handled in England - see 'Contact'.

We had a lovely holiday staying at this property. It is attached to the owners house. The owners were very welcoming and friendly but did not invade our privacy.
The location was beautiful and green and the apartment was clean and accurately described in the advertisement. There is a particularly pretty private garden attached to the guest property.
We did not have a car whilst staying here. There was a 15 -20 minute walk into Bardolino itself where it was possible to use the boat services to reach other parts of the Lake (highly recommended). There was also a bus service that stopped fairly close to the property (5-10 minute walk) which went up to the North side of the Lake and also to Verona. If we had stayed for longer than a week, we would have possibly wanted a car in order to reach other towns/villages in the surrounding area.
We found that it was an excellent location to retreat to after a days sight seeing and to escape the bustle of Bardolino itself.
There were plenty of good places to eat out at in Bardolino but the covered terrace iwas also a nice place to spend an evening in.
The swimming pool was being repaired whilst we were there so we were unable to use this.
I would highly recommend this property as a holiday location and would like to thank our hosts for making us so welcome.
My wife and I have been giving ospitality at our place for the past nine years now to British and Irish couples, and we did enjoyed having them with us for their civility, their charm and wittiness.
We always make sure our guests feel welcome, confortable and relaxed while staying at our place.
Our swimming pool has been restructured recently and we have now an efficient new swimming pool for our guests to enjoy.
Summer has finally set in and we are indeed thankful to our Lake Garda for its astonishing beauty.
We had a fantastic week staying in this lovely home. We would definitely go back.
This property is lovely and is situated in a quiet peaceful area with amazing views of the lake and mountains from the terrace. The owners are absolutely lovely - very happy to help, very generous and very kind with our 3 year old. They leant us two bikes for the week and helped organise for us to hire a bike seat for our daughter. The flat is spacious and was clean and tidy when we arrived. The flat has two supermarkets near by and is a 5 minute walk from the path along the lake leading to
Bardolino. We highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet peaceful holiday but close by to sights.
Lovely apartment in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the lake
We had a fantastic week here. Gerry and Maria were brilliant hosts making the stay really easy for us. They greeted us well, had a few treats in the fridge for us and even cooked us some pasta as we arrived late! The location was very good, just a few minutes from the edge of the lake and then a beautiful stroll along to the town for another 15 minuets. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable. Our two year old had a lovely time and it was a great area to have a toddler. We would thoroughly recommend staying here.
My wife and I try to make the arrival of our guests as welcoming as possible by having some essential items like mineral water, beer, wine, milk and seasonal fruit at their disposal in the fridge. If the guests arrive then at dinner time, my wife prepares for them a plate of pasta or rice. Guests always shows to like these small welcome gestures and we are happy to do it.
A very nice place, kind owners
I can't recommend this place enough if you want a peacefull vacation, the apartment is equipped with everything you need and the owners are adorable. A healthy 10-15 minutes walk brings you into the commercial center of Bardolino near the port and you find everything there, from all kind of restaurants to minishops... me and my wife stood 9 days and we loved it.
It is so wonderful to hear how much Francisc and his sweet wife enjoyed their staying in our apartment which is indeed a comfortable , spacious suite where one can relax enjoying in the evening from the terrace spectacular sunsets over Lake Garda. We do value guests like Francisc and his wife who take care of our apartment as if it was their own home. Marvelous guests!
Both my wife and I try our best to make sure our guests fully enjoy their vacation. We wish Francisc and his wife good health an great fortune.

Bardolino is on the south-east shore of the lake, at its widest point, located in a sheltered bay. The house is 7 minutes' walk from the lakeside, a further 10-15 from the town centre.
