About the property

spacious villa with private beach and enclosed garden 8+1

Superb location right on the edge of Lake Garda, with its very own private beach.

Villa Ondina is simply furnished in a comfortable and contemporary style, and you can enjoy the views of the lake from several rooms.

The grounds are totally enclosed, and flat lawns extend down to the beach, the lake and the waterside terrace, making this an ideal location for a family holiday with children.

You may well find that you are spending a lot of time relaxing on the terrace, just listening to the waves lapping gently on the shore, admiring the stunning scenery and watching the sailing boats go by!

Next to this Lake Garda Salo beach villa is a pretty little harbour, and you can step out of your front door and stroll to several very good restaurants, the nearest one is just next the house.

For food shopping you will need to walk on just a little further to Barbarano, which is about half a mile away.

You will find a good selection of attractive shops and excellent restaurants in nearby Salo, with its famous lakeside promenade.

We are litterarly in love with Garda Lake, that’s why we decided to use only bio detergents that are produced 20 km from here. We don’t only use this detergent, but we want you to use it.

In the house you will find detergent for dishwasher, handwashing, multipurpose degreaser, antiscaling, windows and dust cleaner, laundry detergent and Softener.

Our bed linen and table cloth are made in natural linen and some in natural cotton. All this material is handcrafted in Italy and respect the enviroment as it is only naturally dyed.

A perfect oasis

  • 5 of 5

8 adults shared this beautiful villa the first week of October. Upon entering the private walled garden, we were immediately enchanted by the view of a lakeside terrace and private beach. We spent many hours eating, drinking-local wines of course!- and relaxing in these beautiful surroundings. The house is lovely and very comfortable. All amenities have been thoughtfully provided. Food markets and restaurants are within walking distance. The waterfront promenade of Gardone Riviera is minutes away by foot where you can hop on ferries and explore other towns on the lake. Those at the northern end are breathtaking against the mountain backdrop. Wineries abound, olive oil tastings, hiking and weather permitting-swimming. In other words, something for everyone. Laura was an absolute dream to work with - very attentive, professional and went out of her way to make us welcome. Villa Ondine exceeded our expectations and will remain a wonderful memory.

A Simply Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week long vacation immensely! Laura and her staff were extremely polite and helpful. We cannot say enough positive things about Laura! During our stay we enjoyed cooking and grilling at the house as well as eating out locally. The private beach provides direct access to the beautiful lake where we enjoyed swimming and kayaking. We are definitely going to make a repeat visit!

No need to look further!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ondina is arguably one of the best houses, if not the best one, available for rent around all of Lake Garda. Once you see the crystal clear to emerald green water of the lake, you just want to be in it. And what sets Villa Ondina apart from the rest is its private beach. There are houses with direct access to the water, but I did not see any house with its own beach. This is important for families with small children. The little harbor of Barbarano is just outside the property. Private boat operators can use it for pick-up and drop-off, which is very convenient. You could do a one-day tour with a swimming stop at Isola del Garda followed by lunch in Sirmione, or you could cross the lake and have a nice long meal with lots of wine in San Vigilio and come back. No designated driver necessary. The interior of the villa is casual and elegant. Every room comes with AC. The kitchen is spacious and very functional - if you enjoy cooking, you will not be disappointed. There is a second fridge in the pantry, which is a big plus. The owner family is very friendly and helpful. Once there, you can tell that Villa Ondina is not just a vacation rental. It is part of the family. We spent one week swimming, boating, cooking and enjoying long meals with copious amounts of wine. We didn’t want to leave. Our experience exceeded our expectations.

Very, very nice home on a beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8, 3 couples and a father/son, and everyone couldn't have been happier. Lots of room, very well maintained home nicely furnished with all the essentials and then some. The location couldn't be better. Laura, the property manager and daughter of the owner is attentive to your needs and an excellent source of information about the area. This is an grade A vacation spot! We will be back(all the way from Chicago).

Schönes Haus, tolles Grundstück am Wasser, tolle B

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen tollen Familienurlaub mit unseren Hunden. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und groß, das Haus ist sehr privat und das Wasserzugang mit vielen Sitzgelegenheiten wirklich traumhaft. Supermarkt um die Ecke, ebenso Park und Promenade, alles fußläufig erreichbar. Die Betreuung im Haus war super, wann immer wir Fragen hatten, war Laura für uns da.

The villa is located next to Barbarano's little harbour just next to the house you can find nice restaurants and 400 meters away a supermarket. Barbarano is almost part of Gardone Riviera, from the house you can reach Gardone's center in 10 minutes by walk. Walking through a park you will reach the elegant lake side promenade of this village which thanks to the variety of its flora is called “the Garda Lake’s garden”. The liberty style of many villas create an exclusive atmosphere. The central position of this charming village grant a breathtaking view of the entire Lake Garda basin. In its quiet tiny square you will breathe the typical atmosphere of the Italian village. Gardone is a centre of tourist interest thanks to “Vittoriale degli Italiani”, last residence of the eclectic Italian poet Gabriele Dannunzio. In the wide park surrounding the house there is a open-air lake view theatre were you can listen to Italian opera during some the summer nights. Very interesting as well is the Botanical Garden Heller. It is possible to do many activities such as walks in the village and in the mountains, from which you will enjoy some wonderful views, water ski, wake board, kite surf and windsurf (20 km), sail, golf (10 km), tennis. Gardone and the closest locality (Salò, Desenzano, Brescia)offer many restaurants, etc.
