About Lia Poggi

The holiday house La Limonaia belongs to our family since long time. My grandfather, architect, built this mediterranean-style holiday house for my mother in a very large park where he lived. The property had also a lemon trees conservatory (Limonaia in Italian), which was quite typical for lake Garda, and my grandfather built our house around it. Therefore its name. My parents and the all of us appreciate its position in the green, its large terraces and the charming, beautiful views over lake Garda, and we rent it now that we cannot stay there any longer.

What makes this house unique

Great, romantic views over the lake Garda, silent position in the green, all bedrooms with private en-suite bathroom. Large living spaces inside and outside. The villa suits particularly to families and groups.

15 minutes walk from the lovely spot of Punta San Vigilio ( and the beaches of Baia delle Sirene ( ;

Nice villa, but there are some things to be aware of....

  • 4 of 5

8 of us stayed at the villa in July. The villa is pretty much as advertised with plenty of room for our group, but you should be aware of a couple of things:

There is no air conditioning in any of the bedrooms and a small one in the main living quarter. Outside temps were near 100 degrees F when we we there and the bedrooms were incredibly hot.

The driveway is unpaved and pretty bumpy and a walk to the lake is impractical especially for younger kids.

The kitchen is small if you are cooking for large groups and we had no dish clothes available in the kitchen.

There is a washing machine, but no dryer, clothes must be dried on a rack.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, thank you for your review. As stated in our description, the house has no air conditioning, but only some air fans. However, the house is built on different layers on a hill in the green and facing the lake; therefore, it may be easily ventilated through natural airing in the night under normal conditions. On the contrary, I'm afraid you came across one of the warmest weeks of this exceptionally hot summer 2015, which is quite unusual for our region. As to the dish clothes, we usually leave some available for our guests. We apologize for forgetting them in your case; we only regret not having been informed by you at the time of your staying, so to supply them to you.

Outstanding villa with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

8 of us stayed for a week in late May and had a great holiday. The villa commands stunning views of the lake and has plenty of balcony and garden space for a large group. Villa was perfectly clean, and water and electricity worked perfectly ( not always the case in Italy). You need a car for the short drive to the town of Garda where there are superb restaurants, bars and access to the Lake's ferries. I would have no hesitation recommending this villa and if we were to return to Lake Garda, we stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, thank you very much for your review. We are constantly committed to keep La Limonaia in best shape for your holidays, as we know how important these are for you (as for all of us (!)). We are pleased to learn you felt comfortable at the villa and that you appreciated the main features it offers to large groups. We will be more than happy to have the opportunity to welcome you again at lake Garda!

Unvergleichliche Lage, toller Ausblick und viel viel Platz!

  • 5 of 5

Tolles Haus, welches ein klein wenig in die Jahre gekommen ist, aber dafür mit unvergleichlicher Lage und wundervollem Ausblick punktet. Es war alles sehr, sehr sauber und ordentlich. Auch an Ausstattung (in der Küche, in den Bädern, in den Schlafzimmern) hat es nicht gemangelt. Alles war vorhanden, und jedes Schlafzimmer hat einen Zugang zu einem eigenen Bad!!

Unsere Kinder hatten mehr als genug Platz zum Spielen (im Haus und auch außen auf dem parkähnlichen Grundstück), wir Erwachsenen konnten uns ebenfalls im Haus und auf insgesamt 3 Terassen "verteilen"

Die Lage ist wirklich phänomenal und die Aussicht von den Terrassen ohne Worte!! Zu diesem Preis gibt es mit Sicherheit wenig Objekte mit vergleichbaren Eckdaten. Hinzu kommt noch die sehr nette Vermieterin, und der schnelle und unkomplizierte Kontakt mit ihr, in unserem Fall sogar auf Deutsch.

Hier hat wirklich alles gepasst!!!

Die Lage ist ein Traum

  • 5 of 5

Das Anwesen wirkt für sich, die Lage u. Aussicht sind atemberaubend.

Wer seine Ruhe möchte und dennoch in 15 Gehminuten am See und in 20 Gehminuten in Garda auf dem Marktplatz sein will, ist hier absolut richtig.

Vom 15.07 bis 29.07. verbrachten wir (zwei Familien; insgesamt 8 Erwachsenen) eine schöne Zeit in dem großen Haus und wunderschönen , in Teilen naturbelassenen, parkähnlichen Garten.

Die Vermieterin ist völlig entspannt und trägt durch ihre Hilfs- u. Kompromissbereitschaft zum Gelingen des Urlaubs bei. Neben den zwei Pkw noch ein Anhänger auf denen wir unsere zwei Motorräder mitgebracht hatten, alles kein Problem. Lebensmittel für die Ersten Tage morgens vor der Wohnungsübernahme in einen gereinigten Kühlschrank. „Ja gerne kommen Sie vorbei. “

Das weiträumige Haus mit den Terrassen, living-room und ausreichenden Schlaf- und Badezimmern, erlaubt, dass unsere Kinder unabhängig voneinander für noch anstehende Klausuren des laufenden Semesters ungestört in dieser traumhaften Lage lernen konnten.

Ein Urlaub der uns sehr lange in guter Erinnerung bleibt.

Zwei Familie aus Scheeßel
