Even for the most adventurous there are unique opportunities including paragliding and hang gliding or wind and kite surfing on the nearby shores of the lake.

Whether you are looking for enchanted villages, cultural highlights and shopping or sporting activites, Lake Garda offers something for everyone.
Villa Storia is an elegant and exclusive hillside property located on the western shore of Lake Garda within one wing of a large estate (Villa Storia Estate). Located 300 m above sea level and surrounded by 10 hectares of olive groves, you can enjoy an incomparable panorama spanning across the lower lake and the quaint village of Gaino. The nearest town is Toscolano Maderno which is less than 3 km from the Villa.
The Villa is in a strategic position for those who want to quickly reach places of interest, culture and entertainment. Along with several local festivals, culinary events and firework displays, the list below provides information on the most popular attractions nearby:
Gardone Riviera known as the "garden city" is only a few kilometres away and hosts the 'Vittoriale degli italiani', a beautiful, historic home and museum for the poet and writer Gabriele D'Annunzio. The writer spent the last years of his life there and the outdoor amphitheatre offers a rich programme of performances during the summer.
The historical and cultural city of Brescia offers several artistic and cultural events throughout the year. The Santa Giulia Museum has interesting exhibitions, and annually from 13th to 17th May the 'Mille Miglia', a vintage car race, takes place.
The eastern shore of Lake Garda also offers important attractions: Verona, the city famous for Romeo and Juliet, is a hub for art and history lovers as well as having plenty of good shopping and entertainment options. The Arena di Verona theatre hosts famous works during the summer opera season.
Finally, the view from the Villa offers a glimpse to the southern coast of the Lake, attainable also by boat or ferry, and of the Gulf of Desenzano and Sirmione, on whose summit there are the remains of a Roman villa 'Grotte di Catullo' dating back to the 1st century AD.
