About the Owner

I'm in touristic environment since 14 years

I take care of increasing holidays of guests in apartments under every aspect with flexibility and much availability, welcoming and introducing guests to lake Garda entertainments, recommending local restaurants with genuine italian traditional restaurants, local fish restaurants and local wines quality/price producers.

I control security for guests in normal & emerg. paths.

I increase yearly facilities and accuracy in our apartments.

From 2013 we produce, for us and our guests only, in Garda's climatic biologic agro-fields of 15000 msq, an Italian top genuine extra virgin cold extraction olive oil. I look forward to welcoming you soon, my best greetings from lake Garda!

Amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 6 nights and have missed Lake Garda everyday since. The apartment was beautiful and the view was breathtaking.

A car is recommended as it is a tough mountain to walk up, however we did walk it a few nights as we we're determined to have a drink in the town instead of driving so it is not impossible.

The pool area was in perfect condition and the sun loungers very comfortable.

You couldn't ask for more with the balcony, it's shaded from the midday and evening sun so you can sit there as long as you want to. A couple of nights we were even treated to a lightning storm above the mountains on the other side of the lake!

Victor was very helpful and full of information about the local area.

I will definitely be returning to Lake Garda again!

Owner's Response: - This apartment No. IT 5016 Grotten Residence Toscolano Lake Garda is without any doubt the apartment, which we advertise with Owner - Direct for over 7 years, with the most spectacular view of the lake at 180 ° (degrees-side- south). Thank a lot to our Client for this 5 star review!!! - Because we love the Guiness in the field of tourism, we also boast of having always in Toscolano, with Owner Direct, the IT 3367 apartment: the quiet and relaxing atmosphere, always with spectacular views of the Golf Bogliaco, surrounded by protected natural park " Alto Garda ". - Also for the Guiness speech, our apartment for more comfortable access to services and facilities, in the most popular area of Toscolano, adjacent to the billionaires's villas, just 50 meters from the lake, near the corniche and beaches of Toscolano, Lake Garda is definitely the IT 3834 with Direct Owner

Residence Grotten

  • 4 of 5

Immaculate apartment with breath taking views. Beautiful pool setting and sun beds provided. Apartment well equipped. Owners (Victor and Nicola were really friendly, helpful and hospitable -Nicola thoughtfully took us to the Supermarket. Restaurants in Toscolano were very good value for money - we spent 2 days in Verona and realised everything double/triple the price than in Toscolano. The thai/Italian restaurant (the one with all the yellow umbrellas was lovely and they even gave us a lift back (taxis non-existent and we found out they will not go up as far as Residence Grotten) The beach was lovely but sunbeds and umbrella 23 euros was rather expensive. The only thing I would say is that it should be made very clear that a car is essential if staying at Residence Grotten - very dark at night (torches could have been provided) and a very very steep climb back up the footpath - we suspect the owners have never actually walked this route as we found a much better way in although still had to climb Mount Moderna! Nicola was brilliant and gave us a lift to Verona and also pointed out exactly where our hotel was and other info which meant we found our bearings really quickly. All in all a very relaxing holiday with a good balance of activities but not for the unfit/faint hearted unless a car is hired.
