Full hands-on luxury service, including professional cleaning, hotel quality linens & towels and concierge service is The villa is located on the main road just before Bogliaco, a small village that is part of the town of Gargnano. Though the villa is on the main road, the road is above, at the top of the hill, and the villa is nestled right down at the bottom of the hill by the lake, so your privacy is absolute and the road is not too noisy. You can reach Bogliaco in just a few minutes on foot (about 500 meters, but along the busy road so not a tranquil stroll), where you will find a couple of good bars for your morning capuccino as well as the restaurant “Allo Scoglio”, one of our absolute favourites for fish, with a lake front terrace and very child friendly. Gargnano town centre is another 1.5km down the road, and here you will find a number of small shops, 2 restaurants with a michelin star (Tortuga and Villa Feltrinelli) as well as a number of other excellent restaurants and pizzerias. Here you will also find the lake garda ferry port, where you can catch a ferry to any other port on the lake. In the other direction, about 5km down the road, you will find the city of Toscolano Maderno, a small city with all the services for the local villages and towns. Here you will find the large supermarkets, many restaurants and pizzerias, a fantastic weekly market (thursday mornings), and another ferry port. For golfers, the Bogliaco Golf club is just around the corner, in the hills just above the villa. We can arrange for a discounted green fee for our golfing guests, just ask.
