“Lovely apartment & owners”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

The apartment is clean & spacious & the owners were exceedingly generous with provisions. They took us shopping & were very kind & helpful generally.
There is a short walk along the lake into the centre of Desenzano which has a great selection of restaurants. It was very hot but apparently it isn't usually quite so much. It was lovely eating on the balcony overlooking the lake when there was a breeze.

“A great place to stay for a relaxed holiday by Lake Garda.”

We had a wonderful time at Guiliana's house. The family were so welcoming and helpful. The apartment was comfortable and well furnished. We had everything we needed and we really appreciated the effort Guiliana made to make us feel at home.
The position could not have been better for swimming in the lake, walking into town or exploring the area.We loved relaxing and eating on the balcony. It was a perfect holiday. Thank you Guiliana.

“Beautiful apartment close to lake”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in this apartment for 1 week in June. When we arrived the owner picked us up at the train station so that we didn't have to take a cab which we really appreciated. He also took us to the grocery store! The apartment itself is very nicely decorated and clean. There were 5 of us staying there and the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms worked perfectly for us. The location is very good, it's a fairly short walk to the lake and the town where you can catch the ferry to tour the lake. The restaurant at the bottom of the hill next to the lake is very good and we ate there several times both for dine in and take out. There is nice lake view from the living room and front porch and the sunrises are beautiful if you don't mind getting up early. There is no washer in the unit, but the owner will do your laundry for you. We loved staying there and the owners are really great people.

“Perfect location for exploring Lake Garda”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our family (2 adults, 4 kids aged 5-16 years) stayed here for a week in high season. The hosts were really friendly and welcoming. The hosts gave us complimentary bottle of local wine on arrival along with a few bottles of Peroni and Moretti beer and some fresh milk which was a lovely extra. The hosts' English gets them by - and was much better than my Italian! The apartment is very secure and everything was as expected. It is really spacious and comfortable. The lift is helpful for getting heavy bags up and down and start and end of stay - would be great too for anyone with mobility difficulties. We all slept really well. The air conditioning is great. The balcony was lovely for breakfast and family meals in the evenings overlooking the lake. The WiFi is excellent, so didn't really use the TV or DVD player. The house - especially the kitchen - is really well equipped and also stocked with some helpful staples for cooking and cleaning. Desenzano is a busy town but this house is far enough away from the hustle and bustle and noise but still within walking distance for our 5 year old. The lake itself is just a 5 minute walk at most from the apartment - including pedalo high. There's free parking close to the apartment. It's an ideal location for exploring Lake Garda - we visited as far as Salo on the West coast and Garda on the East, all within easy reach by car, bus or lake boat. Desenzano has a very large out-of-town shopping complex ('Il Leone') with food supermarket and loads of high street shops - even an Apple store! Desenzano is much more reasonably priced than places like Sirmione which rip-off tourists!
