Full property description

Borgo Oriolo is a modern and fully furnished family apartment situated in the idyllic hillside above Toscalano Maderno, Lake Garda. Residents at Borgo Oriolo can relax in the undisturbed peace and quiet of the beautiful Italian Countryside with the option of a short 1km drive (or 10 minute walk) to the harbour town of Toscalano below. The apartment has a breathtaking, panoramic view of the Lake, which is best enjoyed with a chilled glass of wine on our spacious Terrace, perfectly suited for mealtimes and entertaining guests.

The apartment is air-conditioned throughout and perfectly suited for 6 people, with a twin room, two double rooms, one with a private balcony, for those who appreciate the shade in the hot summer weather. The bathroom has both shower and bath facilities and the open plan living area with leather sofa and armchair is furnished with an incorporated kitchen and breakfast bar, large flat screen TV, DVD player/playstation and FREE WIFI. The Terrace is connected to the living area by large glass veranda doors which create extra living space and a cool soothing breeze during the day.

A swimming pool (20x5m) is shared by the private residences and comes equipped with private sun loungers for each apartment. Many of the residences are owned by Italians and guests can often enjoy the pool and its stunning view of the Olive Groves below and Lake in the distance to themselves during the week. Residents can also make use of a private car parking facility and communal barbeque area.

A car is essential at Borgo Oriolo, but the apartment is only 1km from the main Gardesana Road, which circles the lake and the beautiful lakeside towns of Salo and Gargagno. Visitors are spoilt for choice with the many scenic and rustic walks that the hillside has to offer, but are only a short walk away from the charismatic hamlet of Maclino, with restaurant and local grocery store, if you simply want to take in the beautiful landscapes, lake views and food that Lake Garda has to offer.

Area description

The property is a short drive (approx. 1km) from the main Gardesana road that circles the lake, and a short walk (on a hill) to the small hamlet of Maclino, where there is a restaurant and grocery store.

There are 2 large supermarkets, several bars and restaurants, a beach and a ferry terminal for visiting lakeside towns in Toscolano Maderno (1km from apartment).

The apartment is only a short drive along the Gardesana Road to the towns of Salo and Gargnano. Salo is fashionable shopping town with designer shops and several restaurants and bars that come highly recommended.

Valle del Cartiere is a famous forest walking area, which is only a short walking distance from the apartment.

Toscolano-Maderno is a town and comune on the West coast of Lake Garda, in the province of Brescia, in the region of Lombardy, in Italy. It is located c. 40 km from Brescia.

Located on the Brescian shore of the Lake Garda, it includes the two towns of Toscolano, an industrial center, and Maderno, a tourist resort, united into a single comune in 1928. The municipal territory includes the Monte Pizzocolo.

Maderno has the best sandy beach on Lake Garda, which faces South and has fabulously clear, sparkling fresh water to swim in.

Your review of the accommodation:
The accommodation was excellent. Really clean, airy, modern, and had just about everything we needed (only thing missing was wi-fi). Easy to find thanks to first-class instructions from Garda Holidays. Felt like we had the place to ourselves as most of the other apartments seem to be owned by Italians. Would definitely recommend to family and friends as an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful Lake Garda.

"Superb apartment, well fitted out, fantastic big pool. Short cut walk down to village worth promoting more, makes life easier for evening meals, kids independence etc. One comment I know you've had before -WiFi is pretty much standard these days in prpierties of this standard - not having it made organising trips out more difficult - had to go down to the town to a cafe to connect. Perhaps the complex has no phone lines ? Wifi would make a 5 star review. If wifi is a no go , then more info on options for Venice day trips, maps of local road network etc. would help."
