Two bedrooms open onto a covered terrace overlooking the lake, while the master bedroom has a small terrace also with a lake view. From the first floor corridor another staircase gives leads up to the attic with a twin bedroom with terrace with lake view.
The villa faces a sloping fenced-in garden of 500 sq m planted with grass and some of the typical herbs of Lake Garda. The large portico, accessible from the living room and furnished with tables and chairs, is the perfect place to enjoy the view of the lake and to relax at the end of the day with a good glass of wine.

The pool is purified with chlorine, coated with blue PVC and is illuminated both internally and in the area around the pool, where a solar-powered shower is located.
