Garda apartment description

We let apartments in lovely grounds overlooking this spectacular lake. They are a few minutes walk from the lakeside, a few more from the charming town. The condominium has a wonderful swimming-pool, with a toddler pool and restaurant and a magnificent view. It is surrounded by lovely grounds rich in mature trees, and offers safe access to the lakeside via an underpass under the road. Where we join the lake is the best beach on the lake (stony), and the swimming is wonderful. Public transport and road links are very good and trips can easily be made to Gardaland,Verona,Venice,Milan,Mantova etc. Steamer services take you to all the other little towns around the lake, and there are all types of walks, from strolling along the promenade, to climbing in the nearby mountains (helped by a cable car). The town, with its pedestrianised shopping area of old and narrow lanes, has cafe's, bars and restaurants to suit every budget. Other apartments can be taken along with apt 510 for larger groups.

General information:: We feel very lucky to have discovered these apartments, and to own one. The view from the balconies, the grounds, the walks of all kinds, the mountain scenery, the changing appearance of the lake, the shoreline, the cafe's and restaurants on the promenade, the proximity of wonderful historic cities - it is all so beautiful! There are various facilities and theme parks to entertain the children and the climate is excellent. The condominium can easily be reached by bus from Verona airport, while there are cheap flights to Verona, Bergamo, Venice and Milan (in order of closeness). Hire a car or use train and bus or we can arrange for our friendly taxi-driver to meet you. Or drive down. Finally, if, like me, you worry about the effect of flying on our environment, there is a very pleasant train route, at least from the south of England. Take the Eurostar to Paris Nord, cross to Gare de Bercy, and take the night train to Verona arriving 7.25am. For other train routes, please contact us.

Before you leave this page:: We haven't mentioned the open-air opera in the Arena in Verona. It's on in July and August, it's easy to get tickets, and there are buses to take you there from outside our gate.
Nor have we mentioned Signora Maria Luisa, our English-speaking colleague and housekeeper of the condominium. She looks after our guests beautifully and sorts out any problems. She leaves a basic welcome pack for new arrivals, and basic cooking necessities are also left.
Warning: There is a longish slope and 35 steps up to the pool, but you can also reach it by car.

Letters from guests:: 'We had a wonderful time - the apartment was fabulous and the whole area is just perfect for a family holiday. After a good scout round the little towns and villages around the lake, we were still in no doubt at all that we loved Garda best. We enjoyed the privacy, beautiful grounds and pool, and Maria Luisa and Ali were most helpful and welcoming. Many, many thanks for all your assistance, your directions were excellent. Thanks for making our holiday arrangements so carefree.'
'I want to compliment you on the professionalism of the whole operation. The briefing was excellent and the way the whole set-up is organised is wonderful. We were delighted with the apartment - the location and the facilities, and Maria was very nice and helpful...'
'Italy and Lake Garda were a wonderful experience for my son and me. Hopefully we will get to visit again as the memories we have are wonderful and I know there is a lot more to explore.'

Apartment 510: Garda Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 1956ha

We own this apartment and look forward to the time when we can spend long periods in it. It has a double bed in the bedroom and sleeps 3 in the living-room. In addition, it has 2 balconies, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. The apartment is comfortable rather than luxurious. There are books, games and maps there, as well as lots of bedding for cooler times of year. The kitchen is small but very well-equipped, and totally refurbished winter 2006/7. It is on the first floor (there is a lift) and there is a good view of the lake. The condo boasts a 'solarium' - a bit of flat roof - with wonderful views and a few deckchairs. For groups or two families together, we can offer a second one-bedroom apartment and/or a studio apartment in the same building.

                  • IMPORTANT: The air-conditioning is an old-fashioned air-cooling system, and not the most effective in the world! It does not extend well into the bedroom, where there is a ceiling-fan which we have always found quite adequate. Bathroom, bedroom and kitchen linen is an extra, provided by the condominium if required for 15 euros per head per set. This only just covers the cost of the laundry and delivery to the apartment. As well as the double bedroom there are two adjoining single beds and a sofa-bed in the living-room. The balconies face south, one being sunny, one being shaded. Of the above facilities, the swimming-pool, washing-machine, garden, swings, cots and high-chairs are communal. There is a ramp and lift for wheel-chair access, and I am assured the doors are wide enough for a wheel-chair. As well as the wonderful swimming-pool we share with another complex, there is a spectacular new Leisure Centre with pools in Garda which you can reach using the free town shuttle bus....moreless

                      The condo is on the edge of the historic little town of Garda,which is on the south-east shore of the lake at its widest part, in a sheltered bay. The location is fantastic, with 3-minute access to the lakeside via our private underpass, where you find a promenade into town on your left (7 mins), a cafe/bar 150 metres along to the right, and the beach in the photo stretching round the bay to your right. There are walks along the lakeside in both directions, and also up into the hills around. We always feel sorry for the visitors we see trailing down the roads to the lake from the hotels a bit further inland. Garda offers easy access to Verona, Venice , Mantua, Milan and - further away - Bologna.

                      Easy-jet and BA fly from Gatwick to Verona.
