Guestbook comments from the owner

“Great for complex rest including skiing, sightseeing and shopping”

Very good apartment. Enough space for 3 couples, big balcony, everything is present and is working properly.

Fantastic views on the lake, lots of interesting places nearby.

Verona is 1h away, Milan - 2 h away, Venice - 2h away - you can visit everything easily.

In terms of skiing - local resort was closed due to warm weather, but it is usually open in the winter months. Madonna di Campiglio is 1 h 30 min away (great for relaxing skiing), Canazei and Dolomites Superski is 2 h away. We found this place simply perfect.

Great place to stay - super convenient for Malcesine and quiet in the evenings

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by the caretaker Annie, who speaks English very well. She showed us around, made sure we had all the info we needed, and even gave some good restaurant and event suggestions.

Everything is clean, spacious and comfortable. The air-con is a great bonus, and we although the temperatures were never above 32 outside, we appreciated using the air-con in the evenings.

Parking is in the garages under the building - it's a bit steep getting up and down there, but no real problems.

Overall, a great place. Highly recommended.

Lived up to expectations, well equipped and only a few minutes walk from town and Lake shore.

  • 5 of 5

Sottodossi was a great base for our 3 generational family wedding gathering in Malcesine. Some initial confusion over bookings and Laura’spayment system made me slightly nervous that all would be well. However I need not have worried, Laura was very helpful with any questions we had, and the lovely house manager Annie was 5 star during our stay, always going the extra mile to ensure the experience we had was 5 star as well!

Malcesine is a lovely place to visit, wedding or no!

Definitely would recommend a stay.

Clean, convenient location and everything you need is there

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, very spacious and very close to town so it was a quick walk to everything. The only difficulty for us was the driveway and that was because we had a large car. Overall a great find that we would highly recommend.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time our family has rented this lovely apartment and it has just been beautifully refurbished and air conditioning installed, so it's even better than before. it's a real home from home for us. What keeps us coming back is partly the situation (on the lower slope of Monte Baldo, near the cable car route) and partly the apartment itself, which is comfortable and well-equipped, with a large wrap-around balcony. It's ideal for our family of five. (Be aware though that it is uphill from the town and that the driveway is sloping. There are steps to negotiate down from the road to the front door. No problem for us, but this may be a challenge if you have mobility problems.)

The owner Laura is quick to reply to messages and her representative on site is very helpful. Deposits are always quickly returned at the end of our stay.

Very nice, easy, precise and effective communication with both Laura (owner) and Annie (care taker). A high degree of flexibility. Damage deposit very quickly returned. Very nice apartement with everything you need. Located in a silent area, but at the same time very close to the heart of Malcesine and the beach. 5 mins to walk to the cableway to Monte Baldo, 5 mins to the beach and 8 mins to Malcesine town. We would love to come back!

Lovely apartment, Great service

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment and close to town.

Following our return we were advised that we left numerous clothes in the wardrobe by mistake (we had not actually noticed- oops) however we were quickly informed, send pictures of the items and these posted back to our home address in the UK. We have also had fast confirmation of the return of the security deposit.

This booking was very easy to arrange, the owner and housekeeper are lovely to deal with and the overall service fantastic.

Thank you .

The newly renovated apartment is located in a quiet zone, five minutes walking from the castle of this beautiful lakefront town on the Oriental shore of Lake Garda, its history dating back to the Middle Ages with a magnificent Renaissance castle towering over the lake.

There is a 1 hour driving to Verona,beloved Shakespeare's town,where in July and August you can enjoy Opera in the 2000-year-old Roman amphitheatre.Surrounded by olive trees this house is an oasis of peace yet just a few minutes away from the night life,shops,restaurant.Verona is the centre of world reknown wine Valpolicella and Custoza.

Other Activities: Paragliding, Snowboarding, Wine tasting

Golf: Garda Golf in Salo' is one of the best golf course in Italy.

Ski: There are a lot of great ski areas less than 1 hour driving, including Dolomites.
