About the area: Gardone thanks to the variety of its flora is called “the Garda Lake’s garden”. The liberty style of many villas creates an exclusive atmosphere. The central position of this charming village grants a breathtaking view of the entire Lake Garda basin. In its quiet tiny square you will breathe the typical atmosphere of the Italian village. Gardone is a center of tourist interest thanks to “Vittoriale degli Italiani”, last residence of the eclectic itallian poet Gabriele Dannunzio. In the wide park surrounding the house there is a open-air lake view theatre were you can listen to Italian opera during some the summer nights. Very interesting as well is the Botanical Garden Heller. It is possible to do many activities such as walks in the village and in the mountains, from which you will enjoy some wonderful views, water ski, wake board, kite surf and windsurf (20km), sail, golf(10km.), tennis. Gardone and the closest localities (Salò, Desenzano, Brescia) offer many restaurants, shops and nightclubs.

Beautiful apartment in stunning location
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday. The apartment was absolutely stunning, spacious and beautifully furnished, with everything you would need - it really felt like our home.
We travelled to most of the villages dotted around the lake, and personally preferred the west coast of the lake, which we found less touristy. There is a good selection of restaurants nearby and if you rent a car some spectacular views to be had from a number of them. In our opinion however, nothing beat the view from the terrace of the apartment, and coffee in the morning on the terrace with croissants from the little bakery a stones through away was one of our favourite times.
A super apartment in a fabulous spot 5*
Thank you for having us Laura
Perfect location, view fantastic as in the picture.Village through courtyard and door straight onto street with shops .Fresh pastries / cakes every morning. 10 mins walk to beach with sun beds to hire for 1euro per hour and a pier for kids to jump off for hours.
Apartment spotless, lovely towels and sheets.kitchen had everything required.
Laura responded to every e-mail promptly. She was a delight to meet. Helpful and efficient.
Lots of restaurants near by but balcony view better than any of the restaurants .
Thank you so much!
Lovely apartment and location
The apartment is excellent in all respects, with Gardone Riviera (alto) a perfect location above the lake with the apartment providing a wonderful terrace overlooking the lake. Lake Garda itself is a gem. A car is advisable to explore, but parking is provided nearby at no additional cost.
Given ... finding the place was a little bit challenging (even with GPS assistance), but I guess that is Italy with its small (one-way) streets. However, located in a quite pedestrian area close to a small, picturesque Piazza with several restaurants this place is DEFINETELY worth the challenge. Just reaching the apartment through a historic doorway and courtyard gave us a flair of authentic Italian living that we did not anticipate ... and after mastering quite some stairs with our luggage we were awarded with a "million dollar view" of Lake Garda. The vista is just breathtaking.
The apartment itself is modern, spacious and extremely well equipped (in particular the kitchen). Our favorite thing was ending a day of exploring Lake Garda sitting on the terrace seeing the sun going down over the lake. Our host Laura was very accommodating and ensured that our vacation was truly memorable. This is not your typical vacation rental and if you are looking for a quite and authentic place to stay at Lake Garda (and are willing to walk a little bit) we can only recommend this place.
We hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!
A wonderful stay, in a beautiful apartment
Our stay in Alloro was absolutely fantastic. The apartment is even more stunning than the photos show, and the views are incredible.
Laura was a fantastic host, who kept in constant contact prior to our arrival and met us on the day we arrived to show us around.
There was more than enough room for our family of five, and the apartment has everything you would require for your stay.
The village of Gardonne Riviera is right on your doorstep, and has numerous places to eat aswell as a bakery and butchers. The nearby parking is also very helpful.
We're looking forward to returning already!
thank you very much for your amazing review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay,
Hoping to see you soon,
A really lovely apartment - all our family (2 adults and 2 teens) had hoped for and more.
+ spotlessly clean, well supplied, nice open layout
+ amazing terrace with fantastic views of Lake Garda
+ comfortable beds, very good linens
+ step out of front door onto a pedestrian-only cobbled street with butcher, baker and small greengrocer within 5 steps; go a few more yards and you have a choice of several small restaurants
+ Gardone Sopra itself is charming - heard a lot more Italian here than some other places. 10 minute walk down to Gardone, the lake, the ferry stop and water access for swimming. 15 minute walk back up the hill in the heat of August!
+ pleasantly surprised that we had two tourist attractions within 5 minutes walk - Vittoriale (strange but worth seeing once), and the Botanic gardens which are unusual but we really enjoyed them
+ Laura, the manager, was great to work with
All in all, we were thrilled with the Alloro and would love to return - wish all our holiday rentals were this successful.
Thank ypu so much for this amazing review.
See you next year!
This apartment is located in the center of Gardone Riviera Alto village, its main characteristic is that after you close the entrance door you leave the village at your back and enjoy a total and private contact with the lake. The apartment benefits from a beautiful and wide view on the whole Garda’s basin. They are located in fact on a rock which is 80 meters over the lake and overlooks a park. The apartment has big terrace where you can eat and relax at the sun enjoying Garda breeze and the lake view. They have just been renovated in a modern and tasteful style. In this location your privacy is guarantee, but at the same time you can live the typical Italian village’s life, bakery, food and vegetables shop, butcher, restaurants and bars are just next door. The nearest beach is 5 minutes’ walk, nearest supermarket 5 minutes’ drive away, nearest town (Salò) 10 minutes’ drive away, private parking place 200 meters away.
