Stunning villa in amazing grounds

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families of 4 and the villa was ideal for us, would also be ideal for grandparents accompanying you on holiday. The villa has everything you could expect and more. Only downside was that it wasn't very child friendly (lots of breakables about). The pool was beautiful and warm and the outdoor space around it felt like a 5 star hotel. Fabulous outdoor spaces. Walking distances of an amazing icrecream cafe, bar, bakery and pizza places (c20mins with small kids). So good we hardly left it the whole week!

Rural Retreat - Lake Garda

  • 4 of 5

Writing this review from the villa - It's our first Italian holiday and Villa Docciolina is in a lovely rural setting above lake garda and near Toscolina Moderno. Only 90 minutes from Verona it's an easy getaway but definitely requires a car to enjoy the local area. There isn't a massive amount within walking distance. So far we've hit the tourist areas of Limone and Malcesine on day trips. Great for a day but our preference has been the quieter areas of Gargnano and less popular resorts around the lake. Highlights are eating at The Belvedere - a restaurant 10 mins drive from the house in the hills. Warm Italian welcome and great food - stay away from the lakeside restaurants in town in my opinion. We also hired a speed boat from Salo - www.motonauticazanca.it - these guys were amazing, friendly, helpful and spoke great English. We opted for them over local boat hire because of their more upmarket approach and support. Overall a great location, nice house and Christina from the agency could not have been more helpful when we arrived. She also speaks several languages making life very simple and offering a concierge service. There is currently a building work going on at the villa plot next door which has been a little less tranquil by the pool. I imagine this will be short-lived once the villa is finished and resume it's rural peace and quiet.

Tomorrow we have a local chef cooking for us at the house. If sitting outside generally in the evenings, bring mosquito repellent as per any rural setting on a warm summer night. We have an 18month old and she's enjoyed the flat setting and large areas to run around.
