Apartment In Beautiful 16th Century Palazzo With Pool And Stunning Lake View, Nr



Updated: 28-Jul-2016
Apartment in Salo, Lake Garda, Lombardy / Italian Lakes, Italy - Peaceful Location With Walking And Biking Routes Just Outside The Gate

A lovely one bedroom apartment in a beautiful 16th century Palazzo set in attractive gardens with stunning lake views. A truly romantic and peaceful location in the hills above Salo, but just 10 to 15 mins from the historic lakeside town of Salo. The apartment comprises of one bedroom, a shower room and an open plan living area which includes the kitchen. Two sets of french doors lead into the garden where you can dine, BBQ and sunbathe. It is a communal garden but feels private as it is rarely ued by the other residents who prefer to use the garden by the pool. We provide free unlimited broadband Wifi.

About the Owner

I have been visiting Lake Garda since 1998 and have grown to love the region so much that when I come here it is like coming home. I have purchased two properties here, one of which is Il Palazzo-Il Giardino, which is now available for as a holiday rental. Needless to say I am very familiar with the region and I would like to share my knowledge with you. If you book our apartment I will ensure that you get the best out of your Lake Garda holiday. My second property is Villa di Tranquilita, where I spend large parts of the year, but which is also available to rent during the high season. Both of the properties are very close to each other, so I will always be available to service your needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ingredients (Lake view, swimming pool, WIFI, ) for a great stay at lake Garda are provided at this appartment which is part of an historic building. The atmosphere is relaxed and so are the owners. They were very helpful (even with arranging wakeboarding on a short notice). The photos do represent the reality. Recommended.

Small apartment in a fabulous architectural beauty in the mountains overlooking Lake Garda. Only 15 mins from the lovely town of Salo. Recommend for peace and quiet.

Roy, who owns this apartment, and manages a few of the others at the Palazzo, is very helpful should you wish for help booking restuarants etc. He kindly booked our SUP (stand up paddleboard) lessons down at Lake Garda SUP

Clean, tidy, small but perfectly formed!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Salo and the apartment is really lovely. It's situated really well...up in the hills but still really close to Salo, only a 15 minute drive - and it's an easy 1 hour drive from Bergamo airport. It was perfectly located for touring all around the lake. I personally think that Salo is the nicest part of Lake Garda, all the other places we toured around while there were quite touristy but Salo had such a lovely town centre, not too big but with lots of amenities. The apartment is well stocked with everything that you would need, the bedroom is lovely and the bed is very comfy. The outside area is a real bonus, it's like you have your own private garden which is like a sun trap during the day. I had some reservations at first because there were no reviews, but the apartment had been lived in by the owner for the last few years (although they had it as a holiday rental prior to that). I think this made it all the better as it feels like a cosy home rather than a standard rental which has no personalty!

Roy was a legend...he was so helpful while we were there, reccommending lots of places to go and things to do, making reservations for us at a local restaurant, and even helping us out printing some boarding passes which was beyond the call of duty. We are already planning a return trip to this apartment next year, it was such a lovely, relaxing stay...I couldn't reccommend it enough and we are looking forward to our return!

From the Owner

After 8 years of holidaying in Lake Garda myself and my wife decided we would love to own a small piece of it. We originally wanted to buy a place in Salo but came across our apartment after a Google search. We drove up to view it and when we stood outside the gate we intuitively reached across an held each others hands. We were captivated by the aura given off by the building and we decided immediately that we wanted to buy it. It was a bit further away from Salo than we originally intended, but only a 15 minute drive. the peace, tranquillity and amazing views made it an easy decision to buy.

From the Owner

Our apartment is perfect for you if want to be away from the crowds but close enough to join in whenever you want. If you love walking, mountain biking, photography and nature you will love our apartment. It is only 10 to 15 minutes down into Salo, the most beautiful of Lake Garda towns. It has the longest lungolago, which takes you around the bay from the beach, through the marina into the historic centre. Salo has an abundance of cafe/bars, fantastic restaurants, chic shops and a summer program of events from May to September. There is a quaint trattoria in walking distance to our apartment. They don't speak English and don't have a menu, but you get to experience fantastic local food. Don't worry we will help you decide in advance what to eat and then make the booking for you.
