Apartment overview - owner's description

A charming one bedroom apartment in an beautiful 16th century Palazzo. The property benefits from lake views, a swimming pool, outside space and Wifi.

This lovely apartment comprises one bedroom, a shower room and an open plan living area which opens directly onto the gardens via two sets of French doors. The well equipped kitchen, from where you can see the lake, includes a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and washing machine. Other useful facilities include, TV, DVD player and Wifi. The TV only receives Italian channels and is used to view DVD's, although the Wifi is not restricted which allows you to watch YouTube and UK TV channels via an HDMI lead from an Ipad or Iphone (not supplied).

Although the apartment does not have air conditioning it is not required as the stone walls are very thick and provide excellent insulation. This helps maintain a relatively constant temperature, cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Although the garden area directly outside the apartment is a communal garden it is rarely used by other residents as they prefer to use the garden area around the pool. The pool, which is set in beautifully kept gardens, enjoys stunning views across the whole of the south of Lake Garda, taking in the Gulf of Salo, Isola del Garda, the Rock of Manerba and Sirmione.

The actual building, Il Palazzo was originally built as a home for a nobleman and during it's history has been utilised as a convent, a town hall and an important restaurant. The building and the grounds are stunningly beautiful and give off an aura which makes you feel strangely peaceful and relaxed.

This apartment is perfect for couples, small families(*see note), or friends. Anyone who enjoys a peaceful holiday, enjoys walking, cycling, mountain biking or landscape photography will also find this the perfect property to enjoy Lake Garda. You can walk or ride straight out of the gate and be immediately immersed in nature, on walking, cycling or mountain biking routes.

Although you are high up and away from the hustle and bustle, you are only a 15 minute drive away from the lake front and the jewel of Lake Garda.....Salo, from where you can easily explore the entire lake region.

There is a bar/trattoria just a few minutes walk down the hill(longer coming back up), where you can sample excellent, very local cuisine. They do not speak English and there is no menu but the owners of the apartment live close by and they would be very happy to reserve a table and arrange a menu for you. The owners have a fantastic knowledge of Lake Garda and would also be very happy to advise, organise, book anything that you need help with.

We have opened the calendar to run from March through to November and recommend that those of you who are not just searching for fun in the sun should visit out of season. The weather can still be fantastic and the landscape and ambience offers fantastic opportunities for people with interests that such as walking/hiking, mountain biking and cycling, photography, art and yoga.

*Please note that there is a low wall with a high drop in the garden area outside the apartment so toddlers and young children would need to be closely monitored.

I will update the photos with more internal photos as soon as I can so please check back.

Couple from Crawley, United Kingdom Jun 2016

We stayed at this property from 29th June to 9th July. It is an ideal base for exploring Lake Garda

The property is about 5 miles from Salo, 2 miles up the mountain and well out the way ! A car is essential, and the property is accessed via a very wiggly narrow road, but you soon get used to driving up the hill.

The property has all the facilities needed. It has a dishwasher and washing machine in addition to the usual facilities. It is very comfortable. We did however need to go to the supermarket a couple of miles away to get washing powder, washing up liquid and cloths which were not provided. This was a minor inconvenience.

The owner is readily available via phone, text and email and is very helpful.

The views are spectacular, the place is quiet and the pool is lovely.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending this place.

Couple from High Wycombe, United Kingdom May 2015

A little piece of holidaying heaven. Far enough from the hustle of touristy centres but close enough to join in (only 10mins drive to Salo) and easy access to the main route around the lake, this wonderful apartment with all the facilities you might require is just the job for a relaxing holiday for a couple. The owner was so helpful and knowledgeable, recommending activities & restaurants, assisting with bookings as required was much appreciated. The view at the apartment is out of this world. Parking on-site, well appointed, clean & comfortable, relaxing and easy to fall in love with. Highly recommended.

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, recommending 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 recommend it enough and we are looking forward to our return!

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 where I spend large parts of the year is located very close by so I will always be available to service your needs.
