Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Every person that cross Gardone Alto Village when passing through Piazza Garibaldi is caught by the charm of this tiny square, surrounded by beautiful old houses and decorated with colorful flowers. In this context is located 'Villa Glicine' a historical house that has been recently renovated by the owner, who is an architect that truly love the Villa and this sentiment appears in every single details. There are few characteristics of this house that can make someone fall in love with it. First of all the position, which is very central, but at the same time the privacy is guarantee, indeed nobody is watching in to the courtyard and in to the windows that are looking the lake. Peaceful is also predominant, as in front of the house you can only see a private park and then the lake. The other main characteristic is the restoration, that has been done in a modern and tasteful style, but keeping at the same time the fascination of this old building or actually, I would say, it highlight it. Those who appreciate art might be fascinated by some pieces that are in the House, statues, paintings, furnitures as well as several pictures made by the Photographer Guido Albi Marini (www.guidoalbimarini.com/)
The house is full of every modern comfort (air-conditioning, satellite Tv, internet wi-fi, jacuzzi hot tube, elevator, fitted kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher).
The depandance "La Tana" gives the opportunuty to have some more privacy, but having at the same time the possibility to be toghether with the other person that are sleeping in Villa Glicine as it is just in front of it. It is amazing how a simple studio apartment can be so fascinating, thanks to its structure (Arched ceiling) and the nice furniture. We decided to call it ' La Tana' which in Italian means 'Lair', because it's warmness makes you wish to take shelter in it, especially for a couple.
The Studio Apartment has a king size bed and a single bed and it is included in the renting of Villa Glicine, which is just across the street. The toilet is separate, the kitchen is fitted with a 2 ring stove and an extractor fan. A movable modem for internet wi-fi is also available and can be brought with you also outside of the house to have internet everywhere.

The Lombardy region
Gardone thanks to the variety of it's 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 breath the typical atmosphere of the Italian village. Gardone is a center of tourist interest thanks to “Vittoriale degli Italiani”, last residence of the eclectic italian poet Gabriele D'Annunzio. In the wide park sorrounding the house there is a open-air lake view theatre where important concerts are held during summer season. Very interesting as well is the Botanical Garden Heller. It is possible to do many sports and activities such as promenade in the village and excursion in the mountains, from which you will enjoy some wonderful views. Gardone and the closest town (Salò, Desenzano, Brescia) offer many restaurants, shops and nightclubs.
In between Gardone and Limone town there is “Riviera dei Limoni”, it was given this name due to its edge dotted with lemons garden. This “lemon path” cross many historical villages such as Toscolano-Maderno and Gargnano.
Gargnano has existed since the days of Rome. Therefore it is possible to visit a convent from the XII century and a church from the XIII century. We can admire prestigious villas and buildings, which have hosted Mussolini during the “Republic of Salò”.
The English writer D.H. Lawrence stayed in Gargnano for a long period. In many of his works we can find several marks of the landscape and the inhabitants of Gargnano and fractions.
Also very close to Gardone is Salò, which is a lively center with it's beautiful shops, restaurants and caffès. Walking on the edge of the lake eating a tastefull ice-cream or having an aperitivo in its elegant caffes is a very relaxing activity.
From Gardone you can easily reach historical sites and cities like Verona (88 km), Mantova (110 km), Padova (165 km),Venezia (200 km), Milano (133 km).
