A 150 m2 apartment on the second floor easily reached by lift or stairs. It offers a large master bedroom in 'Italian Empire' style, a spacious living room boasting an old yellow Veronese marble fireplace and a bathroom with shower. A few steps take you upstairs where you find a second double bedroom and further living room both with balconies overlooking the lake, then the kitchen and dining area and another bathroom, again with shower. Another few steps take you to the third twin room with another bathroom with shower. This is the oldest and tallest part of the original tower which is in stone and still visible from the courtyard below. There is direct access to the lake from the secluded garden which is equipped with patio table and chairs and right next to a small private beach which is also available to our guests. This apartment sleeps 6 plus two sofa beds can be used in the living room.
Overlooking Lake Garda in a picturesque old Venetian villa, one of the families who are now also the owners, are offering to all lake lovers, two apartments complete with all modern facilities and furnishings (some antique). The villa was built as a holiday home for the Venetian Comincioli in 1770, on the site of a medieval building. This site was also where ruins were found of an impressive Roman villa which extended to the existing church nearby (where the original floors can still be seen). The apartment IL BATTI named after an olf fisherman who lived here nearly all his life, has an independent entrance opening onto the jetty of the old harbour of Toscolano. The other apartment LE CAMERINE on the second floor of the house (with lift) is on three floors, with the upper floors boasting beautiful views of the lake. Both apartments enjoy full use of the private garden, here is a parking near the church at 300 mt , just a short distance away. Parking is not free, there is daily fee to provide.
INTERNET POINT WIRELESS FREE!!!
Information about the area: A short distance from the house (5 minutes by car and 15 minutes on foot) you come to the town of Toscolano. It has many family-run shops, bars, supermarkets, banks, a post office, a petrol station, a police station, well-equipped private beaches and small restaurants (trattorie). There is a market on Thursday mornings and there are also boats and ferries to the next town, Maderno. There are sailing and windsurfing schools both in Toscolano and its neighbouring towns and 5 km north there is an 18 hole golf course. You can catch local varieties of fish directly from the garden of the house which are wonderful fried and grilled on an open fire. The local fish man sells his fresh fish caught on the lake every morning from 6-7 am, as well as other local produce such as freshly laid eggs and great local wine from his family's vineyard. It's often possible to hire a small boat (with or without a boatman) for a swim out in the lake and to moor a small boat on request.
ON FOOT: Lake Garda offers to hikers (and mountain bike enthusiasts) a wide range of paths and trails through rolling hills and olive groves which lead up from the coast. From the old part of Toscolano following a path which leaves right from the house and ( only 20 minutes on foot) takes you through lovely countryside to the village of Pulciano and quaint church of Supina, the golf course and then down to the lake side town of Bogliaco, avoiding the busy main road. For mountain trail lovers, just a short car ride away you can find the tall mountains which surround the lake on the northern side and make up part of the Garda National Park. This park is rich with historic nature trails which are well documented and translated into several languages all available from the tourist information centres. (in Maderno, next to the ferry stop for Torri).
BY BOAT: From the neighbouring harbour town of Maderno there are daily boats leaving both for the southern part of the lake (Gardone, Salo', Desenzano, Peschiera and Garda) and for the northern part (Gargnano, Limone, Riva and Malcesine). Sunday boat trips and holiday trips of varying length are organized in the summer season, with music and food on board. A car ferry makes regular crossings from the port of Maderno to the town of Torri on the Veronese side of the lake (eastern Gardesana) from here the roads and paths leave for the climb to the great Mount Baldo, this breathraking mountain rich in flora and fauna is a must for all nature lovers. The mountain summit can be reached by cable car from the town of Malcesine.

The booking process was simple. Lucia was a pleasure every step of the way... she provided good information that made us feel comfortable before we got there. Payment process was easy. Giulio met us and helped us get settled in. Helped us get our car situated in the church parking lot and was very clear with the instructions. We loved it!!!!
Would highly recommend this property and this host! Lucia and Giulio, thank you!!!

Wer den "Italienische Flair" liebt, ist hier genau richtig !
Die Wohnung "Le Camerine" war für uns (4 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder) genau richtig.
Verteilt über drei Ebenen kan man sich auch mal aus dem Weg gehen, wenn man das will.
Der Garten mit direktem See-Zugang ist herrlich ruhig, ideal zum Entspannen !
Toller Urlaub, wir kommen wieder !!!
Wir waren schon öfter am Gardasee, aber so schön wie hier, hatten wir es noch nie. Das Haus ist urig italienisch mit bunten Dachziegeln in einer wunderschönen engen kleinen Gasse, direkt am Hafen. Besonders genossen haben wir den Balkon mit Blick auf den Hafen und den Gardasee. Alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Toscolano ist einer eher ruhigerer Ort mit weniger Tourismus. Es ist nicht so überlaufen und sehr angenehm in der Hauptsaison. Fußläufig, in etwa 5 Gehminuten haben wir einen wunderschönen Strand für uns entdeckt, der ebenso nicht überlaufen war mit sauberem und klarem Wasser und einer hübschen kleinen Bar. Für die Kinder und uns ideal. Auch unsere Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und absolut unkompliziert. Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohlgefühlt und kommen gern wieder. Absolut empfehlenswert!!! Herzlichen Dank für alles und die besten Grüße und Wünsche.
We had a wonderful holiday. The apartment was fabulous in every way. The location was great for us, very quiet and right on the lake. We loved the balcony and breakfast there in the morning sun overlooking the small port of Toscolano was one of the highlights of the holiday. The apartment was very spacious with three double bedrooms and three shower rooms. It had a well equipped kitchen. The whole apartment was immaculately clean. Communication between Lucia and the owner prior to the visit was really easy with prompt responses to any queries. On arrival Alice was very helpful. We would recommend a stay here without reservation.
Most lovely stay in an old palazzo from the 19th century overlooking the Garda lake. The Le Camerine apartment is spacious and well equiped and the garden provides a nice resting place outside when the sun is shining. The internet access is not optimal (in case you need it during the vacation) and the gas fee could be more transparent. Thank you for a nice week!
if anything, the description of the property underrepresented the quality and quaintness of the apartment.
the set-up allowed for privacy for each of the 3 couples who were traveling together.
the kitchen was well equipped.
the bathrooms were clean; three showers in the apartment made it convenient for 3 couples to get ready each day for our outings.
if we had any complaints at all, they were two, and they were quite small, actually. first, for such a stay, it would have been convenient to have had more than one towel each for the week. secondly, there was a pervasive odor of sewer gas in the bathroom on the middle floor.
we enjoyed the facility and all its amenities; we would recommend it to any traveler who might be interested in renting it.
