We like this campground because is is high above the lake, with grass sites, a barbecue, and the other usual things you find in a campground, hot showers, laundry, water and electricity at the sites, a bar, mini market and a quasi restaurant.
Get away from the traffic and camp here in sites that actually have ample room between other sites.
If you want to enjoy the lake, it is a fifteen minute drive down.
Quiet...The evening view of the lake below is wonderful.
Don't let the name fool you, this is a hotel for everyone. Located high above the lake, Navazzo is a village above Gargnano. Tthis quiet, small hotel has become my first choice when visiting the west side of the lake. The host, a wonderful and friendly young woman makes you feel like you are part of the family. The rooms have beds that are comfortable, with bathrooms super clean, satellite tv, and a sitting garden enclosed. They provide a nice breakfast, cappuccinos, cheeses, salamis, etc. The small village has become a starting point for bicycle and motorcycle travellers. We drove on this route out of the village and found a wonderful mountain setting, with a huge lake, and at the top, quaint thatch roof house. see my other tips for this route...
I left this hotel feeling like I had made a friend in the owner, and I know I will return here, rather than staying down on the lake with all its traffic and shoppers, etc. If I want to visit the lake, it is only minutes away from Running Club.
This village is the same as it was years ago, quiet, and slow.
Coming out of the hotel you see the mountains with patches of clouds hanging on them, and walking down the one and only street they have, you see just a few shops, further on you can see the lake below. The bells ring, the laughter from the bar across the street, the friendly dog waiting to greet you....
I needed a bed with support.... They have it!
We liked the adequate breakfast, and the smiles from the owner.
The hotel is quiet at night, and in the morning you can sit in the flower garden in peace.
No traffic sounds, no throngs of tourist, just the beauty of the hills.
Prices are okay, too. No gouging! Especially compared to hotels on the lake.
First time @ Lake Garda I stayed at this lovely little campsite. Location couldn't be better - right on the lake, a 10 minute walk into Peschiera and the train station. Easy access to the lakes boat trips.
Small campsite which I prefer to the larger more brash ones nearby. The restaurants pizza is quite excellent and there is a good pool (although you have to wear swimming caps?????)
Stayed in a caravan but there were some lovely looking bungalows that seemed to be catered to larger families.
All in all a good location for a quiet family holiday - you could easily stay here a week and visit Gardaland, Verona + Venice by train and relax the rest of the time
Not a lot of night life but then it is catered to families not party lovers!
Tree lined 'avenues' on which you find the accomodation
Le Sigalette is a nice B&B located in Valeggio sul Mincio, Garda Lake, close to many amusement parks of the area. If you have a car, such an accomodation an excellent solution for a cheap and a rural stay.
I've been there for a night together with 11 friends for my hen party, after spending a faboulous night in the Garda Thermal Park.
Breakfast is freshly prepared every morning, and the owners are very friendly.
The "Golf Hotel Ca' degli Ulivi" is a nice accomodation in Marciaga, close to Garda, one of the main cities on the Garda Lake. Marciaga is located on a hill, so the view on the lake is quite stunning from there. The hotel is located in a golf course, and while stayng at the hotel you are entitled to a 50% discount of the course green fee. Also look on the hotel website for golf packages offers.
The hotel is a 4-star hotel, but rooms are quite humble for such a category. The 4-star category is probably due to the hotel location, to the terrace overlooking the lake with its swimmingpool, and to the beautiful golf course sourrounding the building. The hotel restaurant offers good meals at reasonable prices.
we found on Lazise tourist board-Lazise private accommodation, which I like the most cause you can make your own food whenever you like (i have litlle baby), and a price is more convinient.
It is only few km from Gardaland, only few metars (!) from Media world
Apartment were realy nice, separated bedroom (with sef), spacious kitchen/living room with sofa beds, central heating with no extra cost, air-condition in bedroom, and living room (it was winter so we used only central heating), litlle terrace in front of, and a outside pool, and garrage.
This complex was really good. Predominantly Dutch and German fellow residents, this is a great place to stay away from any hassles. Prices were very reasonable in May but in summer it looks mighty expensive.
The accommodation is self catering with a restaurant on site for buffet breakfast, snacks at lunch and dinner. Pool area was never too busy even though all but one apartment was booked in May.
Downside would be its location in respect to the lake and facilities. The Moniga Del Garda town is 20-30 minutes walk away and the nearest route to the lake 20 minutes away. So a car is essential for anybody staying here no matter what you want to do. Car park charges therefore become an extra cost on your travels.
The staff are excellent here.
Best thing about this is that each of the 'villas' is very well presented and has its own private garden area which is great for breakfast and BBQs.
For families this is really a great and safe place. Kids club was free with activities organised on a small scale.
One evening a week - the Italian evening was attended by everyone who stays there - extra charge but good value - and a great chance to meet your fellow travellers.
Easy to find, by the main road in charming Bardolino di Garda. Family run hotel some 100 metres from the lake, 300 metres from the city center, own parking with maybe too little space ( 20 cars?). Room was spacious with balcony ( view on the gas station bellow + lake ), sattelite tv, air condition, safe ( with only Italian instructions ), sound proof windows. There is also a swimming pool on the terrace with non-heated ( freezing, end of april ) water. Buffet breakfast: excellent! Price: OK ( 43 eur B/B /Person ).
Very friendly and helpfull staff!
We stayed in the nice hotel on the coast of the lake. We had a great view on the lake, and on the mountains that surround the lake. The hotel has nice rooms, with cable TV, hot shower tubs, large comfortable beds, balcony in each room, one large terrace, and there is a neat restaurant in the bottom floor which serves delicious food.
There is also a nice bar with an open terrace just across the street.... You can have your favorite drink and listen to the sound of waves smashing the coast....Great experience, especially at night
a fantastic place to stay if you want a pretty italian lakeside town. A municipal campsite, small but nice and in the centre of the town (virtually). The web site I've listed is good but does not have the campsite listed, probably because it is municipal. We've been there twice and would probably go back again.
We also went to Sermione - a must see.
No pool, basic but nice friendly staff, very close to centre, good view of the castle.
Before our last trip to the lake we had a limited amount of time for the hotel booking.
Therefore we didn't expect much of the hotel we finally ended up with.
But to our suprise the hotel turned out to be very, very nice. It has a huge pool with vanishing edge (facing the lake) and the rooms are also very pleasing (all of them providing a marvellous view of the lake).
It's about a 2 min. walk to the center of Malcesine.
If you visit the website, don't be fooled by the poor pictures of the hotel. These were obviously taken before the rebuilding of the hotel. It looks a lot nicer now (check out my pics).
Pool / View
We stayed for only one night at the hotel from a recommendation from my husband's co-worker. They have 5 types of rooms, our room was an attic room (Room Luxury Lake) which is decorated in a typical Provencal style. The hotel was renovated recently, but did have an old smell. I didn't mind, we just opened the sliding door to our small terrace and aired out the room. We had a beautiful view overlooking the bay. Our bathroom was large and the bed was large and comfy!
The "lungolago" promenade is just in front and it is quiet (except for the church bells). Their dining room has a sunroom and terrace that overlooks the bay. Breakfast was the usual fare at most hotels, fruit, yogurt, cereals, cheeses, meats, breads, etc. I really liked how the front desk staff were helpful and very friendly.
Travelling with a dog in Italy can be a problem, so after some research I found this hotel in Pescantina, near Verona. They let my dog stay only in my room.
Well, this is what they offically said.
What actually happened was they I could take him even to the swimmingpool, even though we had to stay ina quiet corner and respect other guests.
Since he couldn't come to breakfast with us, they let us have breakfast in a small garden.
They were very cooperative and extremely nice with us, not to mention that the villa is a beautiful jewel set in the Veronese country.
The Villa is very close to Garda Lake in a quiet spot. It has a large parking lot and it is set in a park which has a garden with a small pond and swans where I could walk with my dog. Then there is the swimming pool area with large green spaces.
The rooms have a XVII-century look with XXI-century comfort! They are large with ensuite bathrooms with jacuzzi. Some rooms look on a very busy road but they are acustically isolated and nights are peaceful.
10 minutes from Garda lake and 30 minutes from the beautiful city of Verona.
This is a 2 star hotel but I think the ratings are different in Italy because this Hotel would be a 3 or 4 star in England.
This is a well run hotel with excellent service. Due to a Bus strike we arrived really late at the Hotel and like all the hotels, there were closed. However, they provided a key-coded security box where we could obtain the keys so we were not locked out (which we were just not in the mood for a that time!)
However, for some reason two keys for 2 different rooms were provided for us. The next morning we explained to the owner that we only wanted 1 room and he was very polite and told us not to worry about it.
The owner is called Yanis (most probably spelt wrong!) who really polite and helpful and also seems to speak excellent German, English and Spanish.
Excellent large en suite, which I believe may have been renovated recently. I liked the touch of having a stool in there, so you can throw your clothes on there. Small touch but makes a difference.
There's a wi-fi spot and Internet for use. (5 euros per hour)
Double Room - 55 euros per day.
Breakfast is included and you do not want to miss it. Not because it is included in the price but because you can have a full view of the lake whilst you eat, which really just makes you want to relax and eat more!! It is nice and it also not situated too close so that you may get a cold breeze.
The hotel is family run, they do what they can to be helpful, the food that we had for our evening meal was all very nice, if you didn't like something they brought you something else, the restaurant is overlooking the lake, there are also tables to sit out at on the patio and have your breakfast, you can walk to the centre of Malcesine in about 15minutes, along the little path that runs in front of the hotel, on the lake-side, past private houses, and flower beds with the lake lapping next to you, i didn't use the swimming pool but it looked very nice, it was partly grassed, and the other part patio with lots of sunloungers. the bathroom in the hotel room wasn't very big but adequat, i wasn't that bothered, all i wanted to do was look at the view, of the lake and the mountains all around, on clear days you can see the other side,which is Tobole, another little village, just along from this hotel is another which has a fish restaurant, this also looked nice but expensive, these were the only two hotels on that part of the lake that went directly to the lake before coming off the lake road and onto the middle road which led to the centre.
