Overview

Residence Borgo Alto is a beautifully restored convent in the hills above Salo on the western shore of Lake Garda, Italy.

The residence is finished to a superb standard, and has a shared swimming pool (shared by the private owners within the building), breathtaking views of Lake Garda and is set in some of the most unspoiled countryside of Lake Garda. You would never believe you are just 5-10 minutes drive from the hustle and bustle of lakeside life, so tranquil and green is this area.

Our Apartment
Borgo Alto is a small building, which used to be a convent, now converted into a small and exclusive private complex. All the apartments are privately owned. Our apartment is on the top floor.

The apartment has a living area with incorporated kitchen and dining area, and windows (the original round windows of the old convent) with lake views. The main bedroom has a double bed, the second bedroom has twin beds and there is a shower room with washing machine. The apartment has been beautifully finished, with good quality fixtures and fittings.

The apartment has been recently upgraded with the addition of a home entertainments system, which comprises a 32" Flatscreen TV, multichannel satellite which provides UK TV and radio Including BBC 1/2/3/4, BBC News 24, ITV, Channel 4, Radio 4, BBC Local Radio and many more. There is also a Blu Ray/DVD player connected to the HD TV.

The kitchen has an electric hob and oven, fridge and plenty of cupboard space, and the dining area seats four very comfortably.

On the ground floor, near the entrance, is our lock-up cellar which we use to store garden furniture, pool toys etc. Outside is a communal swimming pool with sunbathing area. There are families with children owing some of the other apartments, so children will be very welcome in the summer. There is private, gated parking.

In all, Borgo Alto provides really lovely accommodation for those seeking a quiet, relaxing self-catering holiday on Lake Garda with beautiful views, swimming pool and unspoiled nature.

This was a fantastic, very spacious apartment in the hills above Salò. It had all the equipment youd expect. While we were there it was very hot but the apartment stayed wonderfully cool. The pool was very clean and there was access to the owners poolside equipment such as loungers and umbrellas. Great views over the lake. Salò itself is beautiful. Overall we had a wonderful time and would go back in an instant.

This is a superb property and it was ideal for us. Its location up from the lake meant that we could have the relaxing, family holiday we wanted and then whenever we wanted to see the sites, we could just hop in the car and easily get to the main roads. At night the view of the lake was stunning. The kids loved the pool and it was no problem being on the top floor of the property. The other residents were extremely welcoming and we would love to return someday. My only negative, and its a very small one, is that the imformation in the appartment advises that the dishwasher not be used as it uses up so much electricity. As this case I think it should be removed from the list of facilities.
