Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Spacious and attractive apartment in the centre of a peaceful Italian village. Close to restaurants and shops, this second floor 'home from home' has been carefully planned to offer a comfortable base from which to enjoy the Garda area.
Raffa di Puegnago is a small, quiet village away from the hustle and bustle of the busier tourist areas but close enough to be part of that when you want to ... so the best of all worlds.

"Great Apartment in Great Location"
A really nice home-from-home apartment in a good location with great views. Lots of equipment (toaster, fridge-freezer, full oven, dishwasher and washing machine). Plenty of fans provided when the weather is hot (we were there in October so didn't need them). A nice shower with good pressure and a full sized bath - handy if you have young children. You can walk to a number of local restaurants (including Il Nido which is practically next door) and very close to the lovely town of Salo where there are loads of cafes and where you can take boat trips across the lake.

"Modern spacious apartment with great views."
The Il Castello apartment is spacious and airy with a full 2 bedrooms, kitchen, modern bathroom and good sized living / dining area to enjoy. It is on the 2nd floor and while this might deter some people, I can assure you that the views are more than worth the climb.
Two large windows open fully in the living area and one of our best memories is having dinner looking out over Lake Garda as a thunderstorm rolls in giving a spectacular hour light show to enjoy !
Every type of shop , bar and restaurant are within easy striking distance as are sunbathing / swimming areas on the lakeside ( Bills bar was a favourite ) which was only 5 mins drive away.
Raffa is a good starting area to either tour up the west side of the lake ,take a ferry, or drive to the station to catch the frequent trains to Venice, Verona or Milan.The trains come in fast and slow versions with first and second class in both.Your ticket price will obviously depend on which you opt for but overall the service is great and very affordable compared with the UK. Make sur you stamp your ticket at the machine on the platform before boarding though.
A special mention must go to the local restaurant , only 50 mts from the front door where we enjoyed the best meal we had all holiday and were warmly greeted by Dominic who speaks perfect English and is more than happy to assist you with any queries and give sound advice.
All in all a very comfortable enjoyable stay.

"A wonderful week."
The apartment is delightful, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The views from the large windows of the snow-capped Dolomites and the area below with Lake Garda makes one wish to stay forever. Venice is only a quick train ride away from Desenzano. The convenience of the nearby restaurant run by Sandro and Marilyn greatly assisted us with planning sight-seeing trips and, of course, a delicious meal at the end of the day was much appreciated. I have recommended Il Castello to many of my friends and very much hope to go back again.

"Fantastic apartment in wonderful surroundings. Can't wait to go again."
I travelled over to Italy with my best friend for a three night stay at Il Castello.
The information/directions I had received from Gail prior to our trip made it easy for us to find the apartment.
On arrival Marilyn (owner of the lovely bed and breakfast/restaurant 200 yards down the hill from the apartment) was there ready to give us the keys and fob for private car park etc.
On entering the apartment the 1st thing that hits you is the fantastic views of the mountain and lake. With large double windows to open it was our prime spot to eat breakfast every morning of our stay.
The apartment had two double bedrooms, both furnished to a good standard with everything you would need. The bathroom was extreemly large with wonderful his and hers sinks, seperate shower cubicle and bath.
The kitchen was furnished with ample crockery and glasses with the added bonus of having a dishwasher!
I have never stayed in such relaxing surroundings and we were blessed with glorious weather.
Marilyn & Sandro's restaurant down the road was perfect for those evenings when cooking wasn't fancied. And the train from Desenzano was our mode of transport for our trip to Venice.
I will certainly be planning another trip to Italy very soon and Il Castello will definatley be my 1st choice to stay.
