Ein paradiesisches Grundstück

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatte das Glück, das neue Ferienobjekt von Herrn Cecioni in Gargnano kennenzulernen und sind mehr als begeistert von der herrlichen, stilvoll eingerichteten Villa, direkt am und mit Zugang zum See umgeben von einem Paradiesgarten voller Zitronen-, Orangen- und Olivenbäume, völlig abgeschottet nach allen Seiten - sogar groß genug zum Parken der Autos. Ein Traumferienziel für große Familien oder einen Freundeskreis bis zu 13 Personen.

Beautiful house, gorgeous village

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here, and definitely plan to return. We have 2 young children, and Gargnano was perfect - not too big nor touristy, but with everything you could want if you love food, wine, scenery and all things Italian! Daniele was a charming host, showing us not only through the house but also through the village, making sure we knew his favourite places to go too (and the icecream shop was such a popular recommendation). We had a babysitter one night and ate at the local Michelin Star restaurant, and the food (and wine) was just superb. The only thing I would mention is that the house is on 3 different levels, and we didn't realise that you could only to get to the different levels from the outside, ie no internal access. We were initially disappointed as we didn't want to have the kids so far away, so ended up putting one in the vestibule so we could all just stay on the one level. We did think the house was ideal for 2-3 different groups though, as you have the communal garden (which was a highlight, lemon and olive trees, right on the lake, herbs, scent of wisteria etc) but separate entrances so good privacy too. All in all this was our favourite place we stayed, and we definitely plan to come back.

Urlaub mit Freunden und Hunden

  • 5 of 5

wir hatten wunderschöne Tage in Gargnano. Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und

hilfsbereit. Das Haus befindet sich auf einem wunderschönen Anwesen mit vielen Blumen, Bäumen, Sträuchern uvm. Die Lage ist perfekt, direkt am Wasser,mit zwei Seezugängen und nur dreihundert Meter bis zum Hafen bzw. Zentrum. Parken kann man direkt im Anwesen.Das Haus bietet hat alles was man benötigt um einen

perfekten Urlaub zu geniesen. Es besteht aus drei Wohneinheiten, wodurch es nicht nur für Familien bestens geeignet ist. Durch die Ummauerung ist es auch Ideal für Hunde.

Wir werde sicher wieder kommen, um ein paar wunderschöne Tage zu erleben.

Der Gardasee von seiner schönsten Seite!

  • 5 of 5

Wunderbar erholsam - einwandfrei! Auf jeden Fall gerne wieder....! Typisch italienisches Ambiente; einfach, aber alles vorhanden was man braucht. Idyllischer, abgeschlossener Garten mit frischen Zitronen und diversen Kräutern zum kochen - was will man mehr!

Perfect family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa in Gargnano is beautiful!!! It is right at the lake, the garden is a paradise, the terrace on the first floor is like a dream. I have nothing negative to say about the house!! Everything one could possibly need is provided (we stayed with a toddler and there was even a crib and sheets for it). We were 7 and everyone was really comfortable and it didn't feel crowded at all. The owner is extremely friendly, polite, and accommodating. We loved Gargnano and Daniele's house!!

There really isn't anything more that you could reasonably look for in a lakeside villa. The house has everything you need and the views are quite spectacular. To be able to walk out of the garden gate and plop into Lake Garda is just wonderful. Gargnano is charming and very relaxed unlike many of the better known Garda resorts and was a very easy walk to the many local and excellent restaurants. A little further but still an easy walk away is a public beach area where you can hire small yachts, pedalos etc. The property was spotless and extremely well maintained. The very friendly owner was there to meet us and carried out a thorough "walk through" and explanation of how everything worked. We certainly hope to visit again.

ps - Do buy some of the owners wine and olive oil - it's delicious.
