Overview

About the property

Villa Angela is an independent historical mansion with private garden and direct access to the lake. It lies in Salò, at the very heart of Lake Garda.

We do not rent rooms, but let the whole property: with its 5 wide bedrooms and its spacious common areas, it comfortably hosts up to 9 people.

The house consists of three stories. It has four double bedrooms (two with a double bed, and two with two twin beds each) and a single bedroom. From all rooms of the house you can enjoy an idyllic view over the garden and the gulf of Salò.

The interiors are so arranged: on the ground-level floor, there is a modern kitchen* (entirely renovated in 2016), a dining room and a living room**.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, a studio room and a bathroom (entirely renovated in 2017). All the rooms on this floor have a balcony; the double-bed room also has a big terrace.

On the top floor, there are a huge double-bed room, a single bedroom and a bathroom with bathtub.

At the garden level, there is another bathroom (entirely renovated in 2016) with a washing machine.

If you travel with a baby, there is a lot of space where to put your baby's crib, in the same room with the parents, or in the studio room.

The villa dates back to the twenties, and the furniture is original vintage.

Villa Angela is the ideal destination for families with children. Our guests often meet here in a reunion of one or two families of friends, to spend their holidays together in undisturbed intimacy. Children have the time of their life in the huge, wild, lovely garden; their parents appreciate for them the safety of an enclosed space.

We do not have a swimming pool: the 1500 square meters garden ends with gates that open directly onto the water. You can dive in fresh aquamarine.

In the garden, you can relax, bathe, sunbathe, BBQ, and eat outside, under the wine-tree. There is plenty of space to sit in the shadow or in the sun.

The exclusive position of the villa grants you priceless peace within the very heart of the Garda. You will experience the exquisite atmosphere of the Italian Riviera.

The Lungolago of Salò downtown, with its restaurants and boutiques, lies within a short walking distance (800 meters).

By car, you can easily reach all the most famous destinations around the lake from your central position. Explore what Lago di Garda, one of the most beautiful Italian lakes, is world-renowned for: Medieval and Renaissance churches, historical monuments, valleys, rivers, hikes, art, water sports, incredible sight-seeings. And obviously, great food and fashion.

You will need a car to move best around here. Public parking is free and just outside the property.

*4 hobs gas stove, dishwasher, oven, microwave, American coffee pot, moka, electric kettle, toaster.

**two couches, an armchair, a four-chairs table.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are interested in booking, please drop me a line about you with your enquiry. Villa Angela is perfect for families: this doesn't mean that anyone else shouldn't find it fabulous. Everybody should know though, that we like to respect the peaceful atmosphere of the place, and won't allow parties or loud behavior. If you are a group of young people looking for somewhere to celebrate long nights together, this is not the place for you.

If you would love to visit Lake Garda and you have never been here before, if you need any kind of information that can help you with your choice, or have any special requests, do not hesitate to contact me. I would be pleased to help you with any doubts, and to help you organise your holiday.

About Irene

Hey there, my name is Irene. In the profile picture, you can see me together with my cat Hanswurst. Someone took that nice shot while we were very busy with cuddles: I had just found him in the bushes, here in the garden, eight years ago. Eight years ago is when I started taking care of the beautiful villa that belongs to my family for four generations. Before, I studied Classics and later took some years in a cookery school.

My mother language is Italian; I am fluent in English, and will try my best to some basic German. I used to speak a decent Greek as well.

Upon your arrival, I will be giving you a tour of the premises. Then often, I just leave and you will be the only ones here. When I am here though, to attend to the garden, or do some maintenance and the like, I will be staying in a separate and independent portion of the property.

During your stay, I will obviously be available for recommendations, hints and tips, and will be most happy to do my best to ensure you enjoy a perfect Italian holiday experience. Villa Angela is my home, and you are my guests: making you feel passionate of this place I love so much is my personal pride.

I like to be always reachable, and will always reply to email and texts ASAP.

A lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

I heard about Villa Angela from a couple of friends who stayed there last summer with their kids. The pictures they showed us were amazing and we were so jealous of their holiday. They made friends with Irene, the owner, and when we met her, my wife and I decided to book together with them.

I can't say but the place is immensely beautiful, pictures can't describe it! We were so lucky, the weather blessed us with the best of Spring and everything was just really beautiful everywhere you looked.

We were two young couples with two kids each. Ours (1 and 2 yrs old) especially loved playing with the flowers in the garden. The house is thoroughly equipped for kids, has a whole room for the baby crib and is packed with toys.

Having direct access from the garden to the lake (which I understand is pretty unique in the area) was truly amazing! We brought an inflatable kayak and went for long strolls in the morning.

We are grateful to Irene for having us at her beautiful place. We found in her the best host, had the perfect family holiday, in total privacy and relax.

Get in touch if you happen to be in Berlin again!

Love, Dalila

Amazing and relaxing journey

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus am Stadtrand von Salo ist wirklich toll und hat einen riesigen Garten mit verschließbarem Gartentor direkt zum See. Das war fantastisch für uns als Familie mit unserem Enkel (Kleinkind). Es ist zwar eher einfach möbiliert, aber dafür umso familienfreundlicher. Es verfügt über

sehr viel Wohnraum und großzügige Zimmer. Die 3 Bäder sind allesamt neu renoviert. Auch die Terrassen vor dem Haus sind großzügig bemessen. Wir hatten jeden Tag Sonnenschein und konnten draussen Frühstücken und grillen. Aber auch das Esszimmer neben der Küche hätte genügend Platz für alle 6 Erwachsenen und unserem Klaeinkind geboten. Irene ist eine sehr freundliche Vermieterin, bei der man sich wirklich zuhause fühlen kann. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im Supermarkt gibt es ca. 750m Richtung Gardone und weitere Geschäfte ca. 1km in der anderen Richtung Salo. Wir haben unseren Familienurlaub sehr genossen und werden definitiv wiederkommen.

Remembrances

  • 5 of 5

Hi Irene! I'm so glad to hear of you, your email brought me back to thinking of the days of our most delightful vacation on the Garda lake. As you know, it was for us a very special time: we stayed with you right after our wedding, and it was a really blessed choice. After all the confusion and the stress of the months before the ceremony we were finally in a great, vast house, all for us. We plunged into its ancient atmosphere, full of serenity and charm.

I shall also mention we truly appreciated your discreet but careful availability; thanks again for the directions and the tips you provided us with, in regard to the many attractions of the area -including the beautiful hinterland.

What we especially enjoyed was your garden on lake shore: every glance, looking out to the balcony, seeing the gulls and the ducks passing by: wherever you look at, the landscape is so heartening!

You asked for advice on how to improve your guests'experience, and this also shows your true concern. I wouldn't know what to say, except maybe this: wouldn't you plant some aromatic herbs in the garden? To use them for cooking, but also because I love their perfume. They would match perfectly Villa Angela's elegant and at the same time simple atmosphere.

Sincerely yours, Cynthia

Owner's Response: Hello Cynthia, how delightful to read this long and warmhearted review! You are so sweet, and it was so sweet to have you and you newly-wed husband with us, the same day after the ceremony! It was an honour you chose us for the first days of your honey moon. How romantic is Villa Angela?;) I am so proud to hear you were happy with your choice. As for the herbs, I'm thinking of planting, among the flowers in the flowerbeds, rosemary, marjoran and thyme. I can't wait for spring! Dear Cynthia, whenever you will happen to be in Italy, please drop by. This is an open dinner invitation, valid for the years to come. I wish you and Francis all the best, a life full of love and blessed by many children! My best wishes, Irene

A dream-like relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

When we booked our stay we were a little daring: we have little kids, had never come to the Garda lake before, but also never rented an entire property like this. I am so glad we chose Villa Angela over an hotel! The place is even more delightful than in picture, the rooms are so spacious, furniture is simple, antique, solid. We found everything spick&span.

The owner, Irene, rents her place for the first year. She provided us with all the information we needed, keeping in touch with a Whatsapp group before we arrived (she replied to all our texts within minutes!), and helping us organise (lazy) family trips when we were in Salò, with useful hints and tips. Thank you Irene!

Our two little daughters (4 and 3 years old) loved to play in the garden (and sometimes with Irene, who, trying to be a gardener, proved instead to be an excellent baby sitter...). We had an amazingly relaxing week, time seems to stop at Villa Angela. It doesn't seem like it was only a week. We are definitely gonna come back next year, hopefully together with my best friend's family!

Owner's Response: Marilyn, John, Thank you very much for your review, I am so glad you eventually did choose Villa Angela for your stay. I was touched when you told me no hotel could have given you the emotions that you had here, in the nights you spent together, looking at the silent sky reflecting its stars on the lake. I love the villa too, for the same reasons: you can leave the outside world out the door, it's night already at ten in the evening, and in the morning a long day is in front of you. Your beautiful daughters really had a lot of fun in the big garden, I couldn't help getting involved! I really look forward to see them again next year, and you guys. See you soon, Irene

wonderful stay in Salò with all family

  • 5 of 5

Villa Angela is a romantic accommodation in Salò, in front of the lake, with a lovely big garden where my son could fish and all we could swim; I really think that it's not easy to find a home so, where I invited all my family.

The house is furnished with period furniture, with a modernly equipped kitchen; all was very clean and pleasant.

I really suggest it to the families, even for the proximity to many beautiful places. Experience to repeat ! thank you also to the owner

Owner's Response: Dear Pauline! Thank you very much for finding the time to write me a review. I see you haven't forgotten your summer stay at Villa Angela! Neither I have forgotten you and your beautiful family from all over France. It would be great if you could be back again. Villa Angela is the perfect setting for an intimate, relaxing family reunion... and yes for fishing and swimming too;) Next time you are here, your son Joan should try out the fishing reserve of the river Maderno. It's gonna call for another trout barbecue in front of the lake! See you next summer! Baci, Irene

Perfect location on Lake Garda close to the fabulous town of Salo

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a fantastic holiday with my wife and 2 daughters. We stayed at Villa Angela for 8 nights and were completely blown away with the property. Irene, the owner, stayed in a separate part of the villa for part of our stay and was very helpful in answering our questions and gave us some great ideas for days out.

The property itself is magical and the location right on Lake Garda simply cannot be beaten. We enjoyed breakfasts in the garden and evening barbecues on the massive terrace overlooking the lake. The beautiful town of Salo is a 10-15 minute gentle stroll away and has an array of shops and restaurants that line the very scenic promenade (Lunga Lago) which is the longest one on Lake Garda. We hired a car for the duration of our stay and arranged this before flying out from the UK. The drive from Verona airport was approx 45mins on the A4 Autostrada to Salo which cost just under 5 Euros.

There is ample parking directly outside the villa and I would definitely recommend hiring a car to see as much as possible of this picturesque region.

Besides Salo which we loved, other places that we visited and would recommend are;

Limone, Sirmione and Malcesine.

We will definitely be returning again and would like to thank Irene for making our stay absolutely perfect.

Owner's Response: Dear Neil, once again thank you for your warmhearted words. So nice of you to post a review right after you left. This place is wicked. Its so beautiful and feels like it's somewhere else in space and time, especially at night, looking at the moon over the lake. It takes me so much effort everyday to take care of everything, and I wouldn't rather be doing anything else. The greatest statisfaction of hosting guests is to share the beauty of this the place. It does make me so glad to hear how much you guys enjoyed your time together here. I am also happy I was somehow useful to help you organise you stay, but indeed it's Villa Angela that does the magic. I hope to see you again. And thanks again for having left the house so clean and tidy. You make the perfect guests! Irene
