Salò is a gorgeous town, lively year round as it doesn't depend entirely on tourism but has its own thriving economy. The feel is very sophisticated with pretty street cafes, lakeside bars/cafes and some fantastic restaurants (avoid the lakefront tourist menus and go for the restaurants hidden in the smaller streets of the historic centre for the best quality and value).
A stay in this apartment would be ideal for a couple, two couples travelling together or a family with older children or teenagers who want to have a bit of independence in the evening.

The Lombardy region
Lake Garda has a unique micro-climate, mild in the winter and hot and sunny in the summer, yet with a cool breeze coming off the lake. Lake Garda is also Italy's largest lake, and the undoubted star of the Italian Lake district.
Lake Garda really has something for everyone. From sun to shopping, beautiful mountain scenery to the sun glittering off the clear, warm water, from skiing in winter to wakeboarding, kite-surfing, windsurfing and rock-climbing in summer; from opera and theatre to children's adventure parks Gardaland and Canevaworld... when you come to Lake Garda you can be sure of a holiday you will never forget.
Served by three airports (Verona Brescia, Verona and Bergamo) and backed up by the airports at Milan Linate, Milan Malpensa and Venice Marco Polo and Treviso airports, daily low cost flights can be found from every part of the UK. Ryanair also offers day trips to Rome, with a flight leaving daily at 8.30 am and returning in time for supper, meaning when you stay on Lake Garda a day trip to Milan, Venice, Verona or even Rome is an easily achieved reality. Why not visit the opera? The Arena di Verona is a short drive away and the historic open air amphitheatre offers an unforgettable experience.
If you feel like sticking closer to the home base, why not hop on a ferry and explore the lakeside towns of Lake Garda? Watersports on Lake Garda are always popular, with the pretty lakeside towns offering sailing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, jet-skiing, kite-surfing, and scuba diving facilities.
If you visit between the months of November and April, day skiing trips are perfectly feasible: the nearest slopes are 40 minutes drive away and the world-class ski resort Madonna di Campiglio 1 hr 45 minutes drive.
In summer, hiking, mountain-biking, horse-riding and rock climbing is popular. There are dozens of walking trails in the mountains around the lake, mountain bikes can be hired and there are countless riding centres and tennis clubs. The designer shops and boutiques, street cafes and bars, restaurants and trattorias offering home-cooked Italian dishes and the finest local wines at incredibly good value will appeal to everyone, especially in sophisticated towns such as Toscolano Maderno, Moniga del Garda, Desenzano del Garda, Gardone Riviera and Salo'.
If the kids get bored playing in the swimming pool, why not spend a few days exploring the theme parks at the southern end of Lake Garda? There are many huge them parks, including Gardaland, Caneva World, Aqua Parks and Safari Parks - you'd need a couple of weeks to get through them all!
Don't forget to relax, though, and drink in the unbelievable lake views with a glass of wine.
Stretching out along the Salò Gulf and sheltered from the wind, the town of Salò is the renowned port of entrance to the Limone Riviera.
Because of its central location near major roadways, it is a point of reference for the entire area for its many services and its dynamic economic, administrative, and commercial activities. Its importance is, above all, historical: Salò was the capital of the Magnifica Patria during the period of Venetian domination, and it was also the headquarters of the Fascist Government of the Italian Social Republic.
Traces of its prestigious past can be seen along the main street in the elegant historic centre full of buildings with great historical and artistic value, and also with many boutiques and stores. Salò is very proud of its Palazzo of the Magnifica Patria, built in 1524 by Sansovino and rebuilt after the 1901 earthquake, and of its Late Gothic Cathedral, which was built in the 15th century and which now houses several important works of art. Tourists in this lively town have many other opportunities.
Sports buffs and outdoor enthusiasts have numerous activities to choose from, including the many hiking and biking itineraries found along the hill behind the town or on the lakefront promenade that circles the entire gulf.
