This charming accommodation is located 3 km from Peschiera del Garda, a lively resort town on the southern shore of Lake Garda. La Colomba is part of a beautiful historic estate owned by the same family for more than 400 years. The property is surrounded by a large park on one side and a golf course on the other. The whole property has been totally restored in 2007. It consists of two parts: the villa of the owner with its magnificent main court (see picture gallery, not available for rent) and the old rural courtyard which has been converted into a splendid relais composed of 15 large and beautiful accommodations, one of which offered here.
La Colomba is located just outside the courtyard, and it has its own entrance. La Colomba has its private garden just in front of the house equipped with garden furniture. The fully air-conditioned house was personally furnished by the owner who has given the interior ambience the charm of a private home. Some of the bedrooms have a nice view onto the golf club, others overlook the inside of the courtyard and the garden. In the garden that surrounds the courtyard is a long and narrow swimming pool (5 x 16 m) shared with the guests of the other apartments.
A path at the sole disposal of the guests of the estate leads to the club house of the golf club. The golf course winds along the sweet hills of the Lake Garda region, interrupted by striking views of the Monte Baldo and the blue lake. The 18-hole championship gold course extends on a surface of 800.000 square metres. At the golf club there is a sporting centre with soccer and five-a-side soccer fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, beach volley, a semi-Olympic sized swimming pool, a children`s swimming pool and a wellness centre.
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. It is located about half-way between Brescia and Verona, and between Venice and Milan. The lake, with its clear warm water, sunny beaches, mild climate, and Mediterranean vegetation has been a favorite spot since Roman times and has inspired poets and writers through the ages, such as Catullus, Goethe, Joyce and D'Annunzio. There are many interesting little towns along the coast and up in the hills - the beautiful Sirmione (11 km), Salò (39 km) and Gardone Riviera (64 km). This is an area rich in natural beauty, history, and culture, with good restaurants and shops. On Lake Garda you can find facilities for almost any kind of sport and activity, from windsurfing to sailing, golf to rock-climbing, bungee-jumping to trekking, from cycling to horseback riding.
