Villa with Stunning Lake View



Updated: 23-Aug-2016
Villa in Gardone Riviera, Lake Garda, Italy

Spacious open plan living with terraced garden beneath peaceful village of Tresnico, part of the beautiful Gardone Riviera. Cancello Verde stands 250 metres above beautiful Lake Garda. It has stunning views of the lake, which is approximately 2 miles away by road. Aside from the many attractions of the lake, Tresnico is ideally situated for walks and hikes in the delightful Parco Alto Garda and is perfectly placed for day trips to some of Northern Italy’s most beautiful cities. It is the type of romantic hideaway that is a delight to visit in winter months as well as summer. It is also an inspirational spot for artists and writers.

Fabulous home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a lovely week at Cancello Verde in Tresnico, a tiny village in the hills above Gardone Riviera. The house is beautifully situated among olive trees with stunning views down to Lake Garda. The view beautiful both by day and evening and it's very quiet, just the sound of the birds and cockerels in the morning. It's a truly lovely home, full of character and very well-equipped and clean and comfortable. The information manual was very clear and helpful and it was great to meet Tom for a drink one evening. Our three girls, aged 14, 11 and 7 thoroughly enjoyed their stay and varied week too. We recommend Gargnano beach highly for swimming, paddle boarding and hiring peddle boats at very reasonable prices (the motor boat hire at Maderno was very expensive) and the village port with cafes. We also enjoyed visiting Limone further north and the lemon museum is lovely, very informative and beautifully laid out. A trip by car ferry across to Torri and up to Malcesine is well worth it but if you are planning to go up the cable car, get there early otherwise you're in for a long wait!

All in all a lovely holiday! We highly recommend Tom's Cancello Verde!

Lake Garda Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Having spent some time at beautiful places in Lake Como and around Tuscany we came to Cancello Verde with high expectations and it did not disappoint. We were looking for a short family holiday from London and it was the perfect place. All the fundamentals are of a high standard (kitchen, beds, bathrooms etc.) and the location is great allowing you to explore the Gardone and Salo villages as well as places like Sirmione which were a short drive away. Would recommend for young families, we have 20month old son and despite having to watch him around the stair case, the stay was made easy though all the baby equipment ready at the apartment such as high chair and travel cot. We arrived late on a Tuesday with a c.1hour drive from Bergamo airport and were thoroughly impressed by everything from the views to the eclectic music selection with some great jazz, blues and rock on vinyl. No TV which is also great to fully appreciate the break and the surroundings. Highly recommend and would not hesitate staying there again.

we first stayed at Castello Verde in 2010 and were so delighted with our holiday that we are now looking forward to our third visit to this beautiful villa in aug 2014!

Castello Verde is situated in a wonderfully tranquil location on the edge of the hills overlooking Lake Garda with a view that will stay with you long after your holiday has ended. It is the perfect blend of being able to escape it all and yet being only a five minute drive from the lovely lake side towns of Maderno and Salo.

The villa is very well equipped and welcoming, we have always felt very comfortable and relaxed.

If you are planning to go Venice or the opera at Verona then you are well positioned as the distance is not too far, we have found lots of interesting places to visit and have always enjoyed returning to Castello Verde for a nice glass of wine on the balcony.

cant wait until august!

Ein Stück vom Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus hat eine Traumlage / Aussicht. Durch die verschieden Ebenen im Garten und im Haus erhält man unterschiedliche Eindrücke und Ausblicke. Das Haus wurde nach einer Woche gereingt und die Wäsche / Bettwäsche gewechselt. Das Haus ist ansprechend und liebevoll eingerichtet. Der Vermieter ist nett und unkompliziert. Die Musikanlage und die Platen versetzten uns in Verzückung und trugen zur Entspannung bei. Wir kamen uns vor wie im Paradies.
