Sun, clear waters, and sandy beaches make this vacation apartment rental on Lake Garda the perfect place for relaxing but active holidays. Explore hiking trails, go boating, or explore picturesque lakeside villages every time you venture out from your apartment in Italy on Lake Garda. But make no mistake: this Lake Garda accommodation is not simply a place to crash at the end of the day. With elegant, completely frescoed walls and ceilings, this historic apartment in a palazzo is for anyone longing for that really authentic experience and a delightfully romantic atmosphere.
(800 m2) Located on the Piano Nobile (large first floor) of a b...eautiful 18th century Palazzo on Lake Garda, this apartment for rent has nice views, direct lake access, a garden, and private parking. The building has three stories, with a total of four apartments, of which this is one. The second floor is occupied by the owner, while the ground floor has two other units. This apartment consists of the entire first floor, and the main garden and patio with marble columns are reserved only for residents of this unit. (Other guests will use the garden only for lake access.) A table for eight people and four lounge chairs are also available. The view from the apartment overlooks a small dock and the lake. This palazzo enjoys a quiet location, since the road leading to the house is used only by other locals and people tying up at the dock. During the summer, however, the dock can be a little noisy. This apartment has private parking for two cars, and there is also a public parking lot near the building.
This first floor apartment has high ceilings and is furnished with beautiful antiques. The most stunning aspect of the apartment is that every room is completely frescoed, with both designs and scenes. There are thirty-six steps to reach this apartment.
First Floor: A spacious, bright, completely frescoed living room overlooks the lake, the small dock, and the garden. Another smaller living room has a TV, CD player, and access to the balcony overlooking the garden. A large dining room has a table for eight, while the spacious kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, toaster, and a juice maker. There is a large double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom with sink, toilet, and shower. Two other rooms each contain a 160 cm queen-size bed. Finally, the last bedroom contains twin beds. They share one bathroom with sink, toilet, and shower.

The uniqueness of staying in a property built and utilized before our American revolution was really nice!
Uncomfortable seating and poor lighting.
The absolute beauty of Lake Garda and the mountains were spectacular, as was the quality of the food.

Wonderful, such a beautiful place, it was hard to leave.
The beauty of the inside, the beauty of the garden, the ease with which to get to the garden and have our own table and chairs and lounges looking at the lake, swimming in the lake.
The washing machine ruined some of my clothes. We complained to the key holder and she said that she would ask the owner to get a new machine. The keyholder, Annemarie, was very easy to work with and we appreciated all her restaurant suggestions and even just talking with her.
Lakeside dining, walking a few feet to a church that had musical events several times a week.

Fantastic - great house, garden, views of lake. Provided a real opportunity to get into the Italian lifestyle.
Historic significance of the house, original frescoes etc. Beautiful garden overlooking the lake - had many meals and drinks out there!
Minor - small bathrooms. Also, the fridge smelled.
Beautiful lake, accessible to all parts of lake and surrounding - got up to the Dolomites and then across to famous wine regions, such as Valpolicella.
