Description from the manager
(Minimum of one week rental required) Standing majestically on a hill overlooking Lake Garda, Villa Garda I is a refined and elegant retreat offering luxury indoor and outdoor spaces. A working estate, the property is home to over 1000 ancient olive trees, which are still producing high quality extra-virgin and DOP certificated olive oil. Designed in the 1920's by the architect Giancarlo Maroni, famous for also designing the Vittoriale degli Italiani nearby, the core of the estate was renovated in 2008. Today it offers three luxury master suites for up to six guests (two additional beds available upon request), a pool and spa area open year-round, and plenty of space to roam and relax. The large infinity pool is sterilized by a natural salt-based treatment and the surrounding patio is furnished with a barbecue, deck chairs and tables for outdoor dining. A Wellness area, dedicated to spoiling and pampering guests with relaxing massages and beauty treatments, overlooks the garden and the lake, and offers a large whirlpool tub, Finnish sauna, large shower, and relaxation area with comfortable beds.
For larger gatherings Villa Garda I can be rented along with its sister villa, Villa Garda II, located on the grounds. Please visit the separate Villa Garda II listing for additional information and inquire for rates.
