Full property description

This lovely apartment comprises one bedroom, a shower room and an open plan living area which opens directly onto the gardens via two sets of French doors. The well equipped kitchen, from where you can see the lake, includes a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and washing machine. Other useful facilities include, TV, DVD player and Wifi. The TV only receives Italian channels and is used to view DVD's, although the Wifi is not restricted which allows you to watch YouTube and UK TV channels via an HDMI lead from an Ipad or Iphone (not supplied).

Although the apartment does not have air conditioning it is not required as the stone walls are very thick and provide excellent insulation. This helps maintain a relatively constant temperature, cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Although the garden area directly outside the apartment is a communal garden it is rarely used by other residents as they prefer to use the garden area around the pool. The pool, which is set in beautifully kept gardens, enjoys stunning views across the whole of the south of Lake Garda, taking in the Gulf of Salo, Isola del Garda, the Rock of Manerba and Sirmione.

The actual building, Il Palazzo was originally built as a home for a nobleman and during it's history has been utilised as a convent, a town hall and an important restaurant. The building and the grounds are stunningly beautiful and give off an aura which makes you feel strangely peaceful and relaxed.

This apartment is perfect for couples, small families(*see note), or friends. Anyone who enjoys a peaceful holiday, enjoys walking, cycling, mountain biking or landscape photography will also find this the perfect property to enjoy Lake Garda. You can walk or ride straight out of the gate and be immediately immersed in nature, on walking, cycling or mountain biking routes.

Virtual Tour

Area description

Although you are high up and away from the hustle and bustle, you are only a 15 minute drive away from the lake front and the jewel of Lake Garda.....Salo, from where you can easily explore the entire lake region.

There is a bar/trattoria just a few minutes walk down the hill(longer coming back up), where you can sample excellent, very local cuisine. They do not speak English and there is no menu but the owners of the apartment live close by and they would be very happy to reserve a table and arrange a menu for you. The owners have a fantastic knowledge of Lake Garda and would also be very happy to advise, organise, book anything that you need help with.

We have opened the calendar to run from March through to November and recommend that those of you who are not just searching for fun in the sun should visit out of season. The weather can still be fantastic and the landscape and ambience offers fantastic opportunities for people with interests that such as walking/hiking, mountain biking and cycling, photography, art and yoga.

*Please note that there is a low wall with a high drop in the garden area outside the apartment so toddlers and young children would need to be closely monitored.
