Casa Paradiso is in its own private grounds above Lake Garda 2km / 5 mins drive from the charming village of Vesio. It is situated on the edge of a national park full of picnic areas and footpaths and surrounded by meadows and woodland.

The villa comfortably sleeps 8 (plus infant) with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a dining room, a kitchen, a living room with fireplace (wood provided) and several covered and open terraces. Three of the four bedrooms have French windows onto a large first floor balcony with vines. There are two outside covered dining areas one with outside fireplace and BBQ.

Great for kids with lots to explore; mountain stream to play in; a climbing frame, slide and swing.

Nearby restaurants, swimming pools, tennis courts, mountain biking, climbing and lake sailing. Two large swimming pools with bars are 5 minutes drive (la Bearna and la Fenice). Excellent local bar / restaurant is a 5 minute walk (www.agriturvaldegoi.com). Mountain biking and courses (see www.skyclimber.it) and tennis courts and lessons (e.g. www.hotelpinetacampi.com/en/) both nearby.

About the Owner

We are a family of five, with three daughters aged between 10 and 16. We bought Casa Paradiso because we love Italy and we wanted a home with lots of space, nature and sport for the kids.

Beautiful & tasteful family villa

  • 5 of 5

The photographs don't do Casa Paradiso justice. It's a large, beautiful and tastefully designed & appointed family villa set in over a hectare of its own grounds made up of trees, lawn and meadow grasses. It's in an arresting location near the mountain village of Vesio where you will find all essential services and facilities. The beautiful views from the house are down towards the tiny Valle di Bondo and across to Monte Baldo on the other side of Lake Garda.

Lake Garda's main towns and villages are busy with people and traffic for most of the traditional tourist months and it was an utter delight to return to Casa Paradiso's quiet beauty, space and tranquillity after a day in the busier tourist 'honeypots'. We spent a lot of time exploring the local mountains (around Casa Paradiso) on foot and on mountain bikes. You could quite easily spend a month there and still find new paths/tracks. There's something for all abilities nearby, and if you come from Britain you'll be surprised to find peaks just below 2000m altitude more or less on the doorstep of the villa. We did a fair amount of windsurfing too, something Lake Garda has a well deserved reputation for. Pick a bright sunny day and turn up at one of the windsurfing places a little after midday when the wind kicks in. 'Die-hard' windsurfers may want to try an early morning session (6am) when the wind is reliable. There really are few places better for windsurfing than Lake Garda.

The villa has spacious and bright bedrooms, most with balconies. The house was extensively renovated a few years ago and has all the modern heating, hot water and bathing/showering, cooking and living facilities you'd expect of a modern property. The interior design is defined by a simple, stylish and tasteful elegance with traditional porcelain tiled floors and painted stucco walls - all common vernacular features in Italian rural villas.

Top tip? Try a meal at Beppe's place some 100m away from Casa Paradiso. It's difficult to describe Beppe's restaurant since it doesn't fall readily into a category. Probably best described as a rustic or rural restaurant (though that's not entirely accurate!) Our family group was warmly welcomed even though he Beppe spoke not a word of English (his German is much better) breaching the language barrier with the warmth of his personality and generous hospitality. Do book ahead. You will not be disappointed.

Casa Paradiso - aptly named.

  • 3 of 5

We booked Casa Paradiso for the May half-term school holiday for four adults and two children, aged 8 and 5. We all wanted to relax (apart from the children, of course!) and it turned out to be the perfect environment for us all. The garden was largely a wild-flower meadow at that time of year and the girls loved exploring it and playing on the swing/slide. The adults did a certain amount of enjoying the peace and quiet and views of the mountains from the garden but there was plenty of walking - gentle and otherwise - and villages to visit without even going to the Lake itself. We didn't do any sport but took a boat trip to the north end of the Lake one day - Riva del Garda and Torbole are interesting. We all walked to the top of Monte Bestone another day for fabulous views of the Lake and across to Malcesine. The Agriturismo Val d'Egoi (200 metres away) was brilliant - we had two really good meals there and the owner was really kind and helpful.

The house itself was clean, spacious and well-equipped and the local manager responded to our initial queries promptly. The weather wasn't particularly warm when we arrived, although the days did warm up during the week, but the log fire was cheerful and cosy in the evenings. Although there are two supermarkets in the nearest village Vesio, the range of products is limited so I would suggest stocking up as much as possible at a bigger supermarket elsewhere.

Casa Paradiso offers both peace and tranquility and access to activities and restaurants and we would recommend it.

From the Owner

We chose Casa Paradiso because of its beautiful private location close to the local villages and the lake and the opportunities for us and the kids to pursue active recreations like mountain walking, mountain biking and tennis as well as lying by a pool and eating wonderful Italian food and wine. We stay 4 to 5 weeks each year and always have great holidays with our friends. Please feel welcome to email or phone us if you have any questions before you make a decision. Also we are happy to accept payment through the site's online payment or direct - whatever you prefer.
