Villa Chiara offers the perfect union between modern comfort and rural peace and tranquillity. A newly renovated villa, fitted to high standards of luxury. The inside is open, airy and bright, with floor to ceiling glass walls and doors letting in the absolutely breathtaking view from all angles. The furnishings and fittings are designer and highest quality, chosen for both elegance and total comfort.

In brief, Villa Chiara sleeps 8 in 4 air conditioned bedrooms, with 5 bathrooms (3 full and 2 ensuite powder rooms). Large open space lounge and dining areas for 8 people, and there are 2 gourmet kitchens with all modern appliances. There is a private infinity pool and large manicured private gardens and park, ping pong table, table football, and a horseshoes/boules pitch.

In detail, the 4 bedrooms are on the first floor. 3 of them are double with stunning lake views and glass doors to the upper terrace. The 4th bedroom has two single beds and a large glass door with access to the side terrace and views onto the forest and gardens. The 5 bathrooms are all new and modern. 3 are full bathrooms with large luxurious walk in showers (and one with also a big bathtub), and 2 are ensuite powder rooms (toilet and sink only). There are two kitchens, one main cooking kitchen with all major and minor appliances top of the range brands. The kitchen island, where the hob and a small fridge is situated, has seating for 4. It also has easy access to the grill/oven. The other kitchen, directly behind the main kitchen, is an even larger pantry kitchen with large fridges and freezers, dishwasher and all the main appliances which are housed in the plentiful cupboards. All the expected appliances are here, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, oven, stove, microwave, etc. There is also a Nespresso coffee maker as well as a traditional filter coffee machine.

Outside, both levels of the house are graced by beautiful terraces looking out onto the totally dominating view of Lake Garda. From here, you can see as far as Verona on a clear day! The main floor terrace is furnished with large designer umbrellas, outdoor eating for 8, as well as a couple of very comfortable sun loungers for soaking in the sun, the quiet and birdsong, and the view. The back terrace has a ping pong table and there is table football in the open space lounge, for extra holiday fun.

The 12m long infinity pool is ideal for soaking up the sun. It has an even depth of 1.3 m throughout, and has a wonderful view both from the pool deck and from within the pool itself. Furnished with umbrellas as well as sun loungers and deck chairs. The garden is large, terraced on the mountainside. There are romantic paths and steps with sitting areas in the woods away from the house, whilst in an area of natural shaded woodland overlooking the lake there is a table and seating for 6, perfect for cards and games or afternoon reading. The lower terrace has a custom built gravel pitch for playing horseshoes and boules.

About Christina Ayer

We use the professional team at Holiday Garda to manage all aspects of our guests' experience, from the booking and pre-arrival care, professional attention to every detail of the villa's preparation for your arrival, including top quality hotel linens and professional cleaning crews, to full concierge service and complete range of special services in the villa and local area while you are here.

The published prices are complete, and include both the rent which is paid directly to the owner, and the servicing of the villa and your stay, which is paid directly to Holiday Garda.

Cristina, Novella and Christina, the founders of Holiday Garda together with their crew of "holiday angels" work personally at each villa and directly with all of our guests to make their holiday villa a real home away from home. We believe that the best holidays should have the independence and freedom of self-catering, together with the luxury care and service of a quality hotel.

Christina Ayer purchased this villa in 2014

Why Christina Ayer chose Brescia

The stunning views are just breathtaking, the position of the villa makes for complete silence and privacy, in a rural setting, yet still only a few kilometers from the town centre. The professional olive groves that surround the property actively produce thousands of litres of the highest quality olive oil available on the market, sold in gourmet shops around the world.

The most amazing villa with equally amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This is the most amazing Villa with the best views I have ever seen. Located high above Lake Garda with large terraces having a 180 degree view of the lake.

The whole villa is beautifully furnished to the highest standard

What a place, it is sheer magic

A special place for a special occasion

  • 5 of 5

I was responsible for planning our 40th wedding anniversary getaway with the family and did I choose the perfect villa! It certainly had the WOW factor from the moment we all set our eyes on it as we approached on arrival and it continued to deliver for the duration of our 10-day stay. The uninterrupted view of Lake Garda from both balconies is stunning. The property is very spacious and beautifully furnished. It is superbly well equipped for self-catering purposes and for the use of Ulberdo, a very skilful (and most pleasant) professional chef who was made available to us by Christina, the very competent manager. All correspondence with her in the lead up to the holiday was swiftly answered and she explained everything to us when she met us on arrival.

Much use was made of the infinity swimming pool which was maintained twice weekly.

This was a memorable holiday and worth every euro!

fabulous views, excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Once you have mastered the final part of the road (not for the faint hearted, nor for underpowered minibus), you will realise that in fact there are very few reasons to leave the villa, as everything you could want is there. Days were spent by the pool, sitting on the terrace idly watching the boats on the lake far below, or BBQ-ing; while evenings were spent eating and drinking, watching the stars and the fireworks and the lights twinkling on the lake and on the distant shores.

If you want to sample the local attractions, the boat trip to Sirmione is well worth doing especially if there are enough of you to have a boat to yourself. Il Vittoriale degli Italiani is a must if only because you won't see anything like it anywhere else. We had a fantastic pasta making evening with Chef Ubaldo which was pretty much the highlight for all of our party. We also took advantage of the local stables (literally just below the villa but by way of the steepest, most difficult bit of the road) for a morning's horse-riding.

The team supporting the villa were enthusiastic and very friendly although it took a couple of (frustrating) days to sort out a hot water/gas problem with people failing to turn up when expected. This was disappointing as this is a luxury villa (for which we paid a luxury price). It was sorted out in the end and everything else functioned perfectly after that.

Our arrival day was a bit chaotic - the drive was pretty nerve wracking at times and then no one was there to meet us and Christina was running really late. Although this wasn't her fault, it meant that we had to split up and some of us head off to a restaurant to ensure we made our booking. Two of our young guests had arrived earlier by taxi. They had real difficulty finding the villa, as the taxi driver was unable to follow the directions and photos that we had been given. We had told Novella what their plans were, but they couldn't get through to her. Maybe we were expecting too much, but neither incident got us off to a very good start. The first day rather sets the tone for the rest and the hot water/gas problems didn't help, however things rapidly improved and you can't be grumpy for long with such fabulous views and such a great place to stay.

I would certainly recommend it and minor irritations aside, we really did have a fabulous time.

Magical week

We enjoyed a fabulous week in the Villa Chiara. It is a lovely villa and has a beautiful location with magnificent views over Lake Garda. The villa was of a very high standard and the local agents extremely helpful.

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

A stunning villa! The views of the lake are breathtaking, and amazing to wake up to every morning. The villa itself is spacious and luxurious with high quality furnishings and everything you would need for a relaxing break. It is peaceful and quiet, and perfect for a relaxing break.

The team supporting the villa were very friendly and helpful, and when we had an issue with hot water, it was immediately attended to and fixed.

The drive up is a little tricky, especially with a larger car.
