About the area: Gardone thanks to the variety of its flora is called “the Garda Lake’s garden”. The liberty style of many villas create an exclusive atmosphere. The central position of this charming village grant a breathtaking view of the entire Lake Garda basin. In its quiet tiny square you will breathe the typical atmosphere of the Italian village. Gardone is a center of tourist interest thanks to “Vittoriale degli Italiani”, last residence of the eclectic itallian poet Gabriele Dannunzio. In the wide park surrounding the house there is a open-air lake view theatre were you can listen to Italian opera during some the summer nights. Very interesting as well is the Botanical Garden Heller. It is possible to do many activities such as walks in the village and in the mountains, from which you will enjoy some wonderful views, water ski, wake board, kite surf and windsurf (20km), sail, golf(10km.), tennis. Gardone and the closest locality (Salò, Desenzano, Brescia)offer many restaurants, shops and nights

Apartment spotless, lovely towels and sheets.kitchen had everything required.
Laura responded to every e-mail promptly. She was a delight to meet. Helpful and efficient.
Lots of restaurants near by but balcony view better than any of the restaurants .
The apartment is excellent in all respects, with Gardone Riviera (alto) a perfect location above the lake with the apartment providing a wonderful terrace overlooking the lake. Lake Garda itself is a gem. A car is advisable to explore, but parking is provided nearby at no additional cost.
Given ... finding the place was a little bit challenging (even with GPS assistance), but I guess that is Italy with its small (one-way) streets. However, located in a quite pedestrian area close to a small, picturesque Piazza with several restaurants this place is DEFINETELY worth the challenge. Just reaching the apartment through a historic doorway and courtyard gave us a flair of authentic Italian living that we did not anticipate ... and after mastering quite some stairs with our luggage we were awarded with a "million dollar view" of Lake Garda. The vista is just breathtaking.
The apartment itself is modern, spacious and extremely well equipped (in particular the kitchen). Our favorite thing was ending a day of exploring Lake Garda sitting on the terrace seeing the sun going down over the lake. Our host Laura was very accommodating and ensured that our vacation was truly memorable. This is not your typical vacation rental and if you are looking for a quite and authentic place to stay at Lake Garda (and are willing to walk a little bit) we can only recommend this place.
We hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!
Our stay in Alloro was absolutely fantastic. The apartment is even more stunning than the photos show, and the views are incredible.
Laura was a fantastic host, who kept in constant contact prior to our arrival and met us on the day we arrived to show us around.
There was more than enough room for our family of five, and the apartment has everything you would require for your stay.
The village of Gardonne Riviera is right on your doorstep, and has numerous places to eat aswell as a bakery and butchers. The nearby parking is also very helpful.
We're looking forward to returning already!
A really lovely apartment - all our family (2 adults and 2 teens) had hoped for and more.
+ spotlessly clean, well supplied, nice open layout
+ amazing terrace with fantastic views of Lake Garda
+ comfortable beds, very good linens
+ step out of front door onto a pedestrian-only cobbled street with butcher, baker and small greengrocer within 5 steps; go a few more yards and you have a choice of several small restaurants
+ Gardone Sopra itself is charming - heard a lot more Italian here than some other places. 10 minute walk down to Gardone, the lake, the ferry stop and water access for swimming. 15 minute walk back up the hill in the heat of August!
+ pleasantly surprised that we had two tourist attractions within 5 minutes walk - Vittoriale (strange but worth seeing once), and the Botanic gardens which are unusual but we really enjoyed them
+ Laura, the manager, was great to work with
All in all, we were thrilled with the Alloro and would love to return - wish all our holiday rentals were this successful.
Having just returned from a week staying in the Alloro apartment I am already missing the place! The apartment really is stunning.
The view from balcony is truly out of this world! In fact, not only the balcony, as there are three large windows overlooking the same view.
The location of Gardone Riviera means the lake stretches around both to the left and right as well as straight ahead. This gives you a really panoramic view that is perfect to take in from the apartment balcony.
As if the view wasn't enough, the apartment itself is clean, spacious, and modern - making it a perfect place to relax no matter what the weather.
On the doorstep you have some amazing restaurants, a very friendly bakery (which also acts as a small convenience store), an extremely helpful local produce store, and a well-stocked butcher.
There is also a tourist train/bus that runs virtually from the door of the apartment down to the promenade and back. This is great for getting around and saves you the walk back up the hill after a few drinks!
If you choose to stay here I would also recommend visiting a restaurant called Sans Souci which is located on one of the side streets off the main promenade in Gardone Riviera.
Laura was extremely helpful from the first contact all the way through to our arrival and departure.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Alloro and we will definitely be looking to stay here again in the future.
