The Lombardy region

The villa is just a short walk down the beach (about 300m) from the lovely port of Portese, where you will find sweet and shady beaches, a popular lakeside gourmet fish restaurant, a pizzeria and gelateria/bar as well. The port has a ferry dock, and you can take the ferry to just about any other point on the lake. And just up the long private lane and onto the road, and you are in the quaint medieval village of Portese. Amble its tiny streets and take in the atmosphere of old italy. There are a few small shops in the village, as well as a great restaurant/pizzeria and a couple of good bars.

We are truly blessed here with one of the nicest climates I have ever experienced. The climate here is almost always mild and accomodating. The lake currents and breezes keep the temperatures from getting oppressively hot in the summer, and the great mass of water keeps the temperatures from getting too cold in the winter. The

This area of lake Garda is known for the clean beaches and pristine water, as well as the breathtaking and dramatic views of the mountains all around. The area is well equipped for all kinds of activities and sports, and has cycle routes and paths connecting most towns, active boating clubs, a number of world class golf courses, scuba lessons, kitesurfing and windsurfing, trekking and horseback riding, and so many others. We provide all guests with an exhaustive folder on activities, sports, day trips, restaurants, shopping, etc.

In the immediate south west Garda area, there are many lovely towns and cities to visit, as well as wonderful cathedrals and monuments and museums. The villa is about 5km from Salò, 9km from Gardone Riviera and the vittoriale of Gabriele D'annunzio, 15km from Desenzano, adn 35km from Sirmione, with its medieval castles, modern hot springs resorts, and the ruins of the latin poet Catullus' villa.

In Peschiera, about 40 minutes away by car, there is a nest of theme parks perfect for the kids and the young at heart. Gardaland, Caneva world, Movieland, A safari park and Zoo, wonderful hot springs baths in Lasize and Sirmione, as well as fantastic gardens and parks.

We are about 45 minutes from Verona, which is a great day trip destination -- see juliet's balcony and visit the authentic roman arena, book tickets to the opera in the arena in the evenings. About 1.5hrs from Venice, which is a "bucket list" city -- if you haven't seen it yet, you must! Milan is about 2 hours away.
