About the property

1-bedroom house and 2-bedroom apt., relaxing garden, pool, bbq, private meadow and olive groves

The property is situated just 2 km from the south west coast of Lake Garda, set in relaxing gardens and surrounded by a 15 acre private estate of meadow and olive trees, opposite the old roman village of Agneto. Just minutes away from Salò, an historic old town, embedded in a large bay with the longest promenade of any town on the lake and ideal for shopping and strolling around.

As well as a 2-bedroom apartment, as of 2018 we also offer a separate one-bedroom house. Both are tastefully decorated and each has its own private entrance. The main house is composed of four apartments: two on the first floor where the owners live. Aideen lives in one with her husband and two boys. Her sister- and brother-in-law live in the other. The two ground floor apartments are rented out to holiday-makers. Each apartment has its own private entrance and patio.

"Lavanda" caters for 2 to 4 guests.

"Gardenia" caters for 2 guests.

Lavanda is situated on the ground floor of the main house. The kitchen/living area is south-facing and opens out onto its own large, tiled and covered patio that is furnished with a rattan sofa set, table and chairs, giving guests the possibility of “al fresco” dining. The two-bedrooms are east-facing and shaded by shrubs so do not get hot in summer months.

Gardenia is a brand new energy-efficient house, which is built entirely of ecologically valuable materials. It is south-facing and the kitchen/living area opens out onto its own patio through sliding patio doors. The kitchen is modern with quartz worktops, fridge/freezer, oven, induction hob, dishwasher and coffee maker. The double bedroom is also south-facing and opens out onto the garden through sliding doors. The bathroom has a floor-even shower, washbasin, wall-hung wc and bidet. Gardenia is situated on the east side of the main house and therefore remains in the shade during the hottest hours in summer months.

The large garden is completely enclosed with fencing and an electric gate. An above-ground 8x4 meter swimming pool is located in the front garden and accessible to guests from end of May to mid-September (this can change depending naturally on the weather).

Just 100 meters from our house you'll find a very quaint restaurant "Osteria La Vigna" that serves traditional Italian food with an excellent selection of good Italian wines. Literally a two minute walk from our house.

About Aideen Connolly

My name is Aideen and I've been living in Italy since 1993. I live here with my Italian husband, our two children, Luigi (15 yrs) and Liam (12 yrs), my brother-in-law and his wife. Each year, in November, we harvest our olives and produce our own olive oil. We love living here, my husband was born and grew up here so we couldn't imagine living anywhere else. We enjoy gardening, like having our own fresh vegetables, fruit and a daily supply of organic eggs.

Why Aideen Connolly chose Roè Volciano

We were lucky to inherit our property, which we have been improving on, each year, since 2000. I love this area because we're so close to the lake but at the same time we can fully relax in our garden, away from all the hustle and bustle. We haven't built walls around our house because we prefer the view we have, fields, olive trees and Agneto, the tiny Roman village just opposite. We have tried to make our property as comfortable as possible and there is a good selection of reading material and dvds for our guests.

What makes this apartment unique

The outdoor space is definitely a bonus. There are no other houses near us; we're completely surrounded by fields. I've always loved the idea of having my own garden so this is really heaven for me or to quote a guest: "it's a small piece of paradise"!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed ourselves, just relaxing, visiting some lovely places and eating some tremendous meals. We also enjoyed all the nice fresh fruit and vegetables you gave us from the garden. (Jen, UK. Lavanda)

The villa was absolutely fantastic, catered to our every need and was very comfortable. It is the perfect destination for travelling round the area. We had a wonderful time travelling around Lake Garda and further afield to Venice and Verona. The great accomodation made it even more enjoyable and special. (Lorna, UK. Margherita)

Gorgeous apartments with a homely feel. Perfect size with a well equipped kitchen and excellent terrace area. We were provided with the most amazing olive oil. The house is in beautiful surrounds which are peaceful but not far away from the local hostelry which sells lovely food for a very good price. Friendly people too. Not far from Salo and other places around the lake are easily accessible. Had a wonderful time. We will be back! (Kerri, UK. Margherita)

Amazing hideaway

Lovely little place, set back from lake, but only minutes from all the action in Salo. Super friendly owners, lovely apartment and grounds. Would definitely return!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here-it's a beautiful and secluded setting but conveniently located just a short drive from all facilities. You can also walk in 20-30mins to the lake front. The weather was glorious all week and despite it being 30 degrees outside everyday, we were cool and comfortable in the house both day and night-even with the windows closed. It's a spacious property with privacy should you require and it had all you would need in a self catering property. Our children loved the freedom of the pool and gardens and really enjoyed playing with the animals!

Aideen was friendly and helpful-she even provided candles for our daughters birthday cake! We recommend this property for those of you looking for a peaceful and relaxing break in beautiful surroundings, with the tourist areas within driving distance if you want them.

Super Lake Garda getaway

  • 5 of 5

First time using Owners Direct and we feel like we came up trumps with this holiday hangout. With 2 toddlers it was the perfect place, safe for the kids and they just loved being able to wander about with the chickens and dog and other pets. In a beautiful spot and nice to be able to get away from the 'busyness' of the Lake front. Apartment was cool, very clean and homely. Hosts made us feel immediately relaxed and at home. Definitely recommend this to others. Thank you!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a lovely family holiday at the Margherita apartment. The location was perfect - peaceful and relaxing yet near enough to Salo for shopping, eating out and visiting the lake. The apartment was spotlessly clean, comfortable and had everything we needed - the owners even kindly supplied some of their own produce including a bottle of delicious olive oil, a great pity we only had hand luggage so were unable to purchase some to take home! A big 'thank you' to Maria & family (Margherita) and Aideen & family (Lavanda) for making us feel so welcome. Would certainly recommend this property and hope to return.
