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: Salò (8 km), Gardone Riviera (4 km), the beautiful Sirmione (37 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: windsurfing, sailing, golf, rock-climbing, bungee-jumping, trekking, cycling, horseback, riding. Two golf courses are in the vicinity. Families with children won’t want to miss the theme parks at Gardaland (30 minutes by ferry, then 25 km) and Caneva World (30 minutes by ferry + 15 km). There is a public swimming pool (indoor and outdoor) nearby in Salò.
Casa della Legna is located just a few kilometres from the historical centre of the lively lake resort of Toscolano Maderno. It is possible to walk into the village (500 m), where you will find bars, Tabacchi shops, and a delicious Trattoria. A larger shopping center with pharmacy, grocery shops, post office and bank is less than one kilometer away. The closest train station is at Desenzano del Garda (27 km). Casa della Legna is located on a road used only by people living in the area or going to the little porticciolo (small harbor) next to the house. During the summer season, there could be some noise from the harbor, but it should not be problematic, since the harbor is quite small. In a two-minute walk you can reach the small beach of the porticciolo. Within 10 minutes by car you reach the Toscolano Maderno beach which offers you swimming, windsurfing and sailing.
Casa della Legna is an independent small house located close to an 18th century villa. In the past it was the wood store of this beautiful villa,Palazzo Garda (also featured in our portfolio). The two properties are totally separated; they have different entrances and their own outdoor areas.
From the road a wrought-iron gate opens onto a courtyard; at the end of the courtyard you can see the lake, but there is no access to the lake. The entrance and the courtyard are shared with three other apartments located in an adjacent building. In front of Casa della Legna there is a private area for al fresco dining equipped table and chairs. There is parking in the courtyard for one car.
Additional amenities include: parking for one car in the shared courtyard, 4-ring-gas hob, sitting area with table and chairs in front of the apartment, screens on the windows....Read more
