PALAZZO SUL GARDA
Palazzo sul Garda is a perfect example of the fascinating 18th century Venetian architecture. Set in the lake resort of Toscolano Maderno, this spacious apartment is located on the Piano Nobile (first floor) of a three floors building. Outside, the shared garden offers lovely areas for relaxing in the shade or sunbathing by the lake.
Palazzo sul Garda has a nice view overlooking the little “Porticciolo” (small harbour) and the lake. It is furnished with beautiful antiques and all the rooms are completely frescoed. A perfect place for those who are looking for an authentic experience in a special atmosphere. It sleeps up to 8 people in 3 double bedrooms and 1 small bedroom with a French size bed, sharing 2 bathrooms.
Please note that the garden is shared with other guests.
This antique property is located just a few metres from Toscolano Maderno, one of the most popular holidays resort on Lake Garda. With its clear, clean and warm water, sunny beaches, mild climate and Mediterranean vegetation, Lake Garda is like a small sea set between the last spurs of the Alps and the Lombardy plain. Lake Garda has been a favoured spot since Roman times and has been lauded by poets and writers through the ages, for example, Catullus, Goethe, Joyce and D'Annunzio. It unites its natural beauty with the traces of its history, from Roman remains to Liberty.
There are many interesting little towns located along the coast or up the hills, - Salò (8 km) and Gardone Riviera (4 km), the beautiful Sirmione (37 km) - rich of history, culture, good restaurants and shops.
From the house it is possible to walk to the village (100 m) where bars, Tabacchi shops, and the delicious Trattoria San Carlo are located. A larger shopping centre with pharmacy, groceries, post office and bank is at less than 600 m. The nearest train station is in Desenzano del Garda (27 Km)
Palazzo sul Garda is situated in a quiet location since the road leading to the house is used only by people living in the area or people going to the Porticciolo - a little public harbour next to the house. During summer season the harbor could be a little bit noisy, just a little, since it is really small!
Palazzo sul Garda is a large apartment located on the Piano Nobile (first floor) of a beautiful 18th century Palazzo.
