The villa is organised into 3 distinct parts, each usable as an independent house, while still being connected to the rest of the villa, so ideal for multiple families on holiday together. The “main” villa is most recently rennovated, while the “second” part and the apartment are original of the period.

Great family villa right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party of 14 adults on our 2nd trip to Lake Garda to celebrate a special birthday. Villa Elena is great for families with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the stunning views. Lovely pool which we used every day and being able to jump straight in to the lake for a swim was great! Great location with plenty of parking, walking distance to restaurants and bars overlooking the lake and lovely beach and hillside walks. The Holiday Garda team were so helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay, would definitely book with them again.

Nice stay in Villa Elena

  • 4 of 5


many thanks that we could stay in your nice Villa. The support of Mrs. Novella was very very good. The garden is a dream and we enjoyed the vacation. Nevertheless some points we have to claim:

The electric of the house should be checked because if you use the oven and the dishwasher or the water-coker, the fuse is going out.

The villa was very cold and we had to ask for heating. Novella helps directly but not all radiators are working. Furthermore we wonder a little bit, that we have to pay an extra fee for that ...

Furthermore the bathrooms has to be cleaned better ( mold ) and renovated because this is neccessay ! Finally beside the main sleeping room, the other sleeping rooms are a little bit wet and all the closed became a little bit wet. Maybe from time to time the Villa and this rooms should be revealed.

Nevertless, as said, we enjoyed the stay and wish you all the best.
