Overview

About the property

Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, sleeps 6

Comfortable, cozy, apartment located in the centre 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 and where Goethe had a minor misadventure but nonetheless spoke beautiful words recorded in his 'Travels in Italy'; five minutes from the beach and three from a panoramic cable car that in 12 minutes brings you up to 6000 feet, on top of Monte Baldo, from which you can admire the whole lake, the Dolomites and in clear days all the way to Venice; site of infinite hiking excursions and winter skiing. The apartment has three bedrooms (one with a king size bed and two with two single beds that can be join if requested), two brand new bathrooms with shower, fully equipped kitchen, a living room and two balconies with a breathtaking view. It is 1 h driving from Verona, where in July & August you can enjoy Opera in the 2000-year-old Roman amphitheatre.

There are several beautiful golf courses, within 30 to 60 minutes driving distance.

For mountain lovers there is a panoramic cable car, 5 minutes walking distance from the property that goes up to Monte Baldo in 15 minutes. From there, one can admire a stunning view of all the lake, the Dolomites and in a clear day all the way to Venice. It is a great place to hike and, in winter, to ski.

A Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lake Garda and staying in this apartment has set the bar on the very highest level! What a place! Spacious, clean, perched just high enough above the lake and just low enough below the castle! It's location is perfect....a short walk to the village to buy groceries, wine, fresh bread & pasta, or to any of the great restaurants & gelato shops that are around. The parking privileges are a big plus. Side trips to the Dolomites & Verona are just short & pleasant drives. Mere words cannot do this property justice.....you will just have to visit yourself. You will not be disappointed!!!!!! Thanks for making our Italian holiday more than just a nice memory...it was fabulous!!!!

Wonderful lake and mountain views

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful views of the lake and Monte Baldo from this first floor apartment in the centre of Malcesine situated right next to the castle.

It’s just a 2 minute walk to the lake beach for swimming and playing on the pontoon. (Take beach shoes as it’s a stoney beach. )

There are plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance to enjoy lunch or dinner or to enjoy an Aperol spritz while watching the world go by.

The Apartment has 3 double bedrooms and air con in all the bedrooms, lounge and kitchen which was very welcome as the temperature was very hot in August.

The kitchen and bathrooms were good and very clean. Nearby shops for food supplies were easily within walking distance. Streets are cobbled so no need to pack any high heels!

We were a party of 6 including 2 teenagers and both the apartment and location worked very well for us.

Highlights were:

•Enjoying the view from the balcony at any time of the day!

•Visiting the castle

•Travelling up Monte Baldo by cable car.

• Boat trip to Limone to visit the old lemon glasshouses

•Day trip to Verona.

•Gelato near the castle entrance.

•Swimming in the lake.

Laura was very helpful in booking the accommodation on line and Anny was delightful on arrival.

Would definitely return.

Fantastically situated apartment, close to the castle, wonderful views of the mountains and Lake

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully situated apartment for our son’s wedding, only minutes walk from the Castle, and all the lovely streets of the old town.

Well appointed and very clean, with a flight of stairs access this apartment might not be accessible (however Malcesine itself is hilly with cobbled streets) to the infirm, and with wonderful but rather open viewing balconies, perhaps unsuitable for those staying with young children.

Laura was very helpful with our queries, and the apartment house manager Annie was 5 star in ensuring our stay went as smoothly as possible. A lovely visit , thank you.

A wonderful apartment in a fantastic town!

  • 5 of 5

As every other review has said, the views are amazing, especially from the terrace. The apartment itself is really nice. The floors are marble (or similar) and everything in the apartment is high quality. The bathrooms are great, with two full showers. The kitchen is large. The square-ish layout of the apartment worked really well for our family of 5.

Our very favorite thing, however, was the location. It’s right in the middle of everything, yet not on a main road. Close, but never busy. We could walk down to the lake in 3 mins. The bigger beach is just a couple minutes further. The castle is just up the block, and restaurants, gelaterias, the supermarket, caffes, and shopping are all right there – a short walk to everything. The cable car is maybe a 5-min walk.

It was absolutely incredible to be able walk to a beautiful lake AND walk to an incredible mountain with all sorts of activities AND walk to restaurants and shopping.

Laura was very responsive, and Anny the caretaker was super helpful, available for any little question we had. A perfect place for a vacation.
