We saw a lot of lizards around the residence we stayed at. They were really small though and they seemed afraid of humans. They often went hiding in some bushes. You shouldn't be afraid of them either, but I know that many people hate this kind of animals, so I thought you'd appreciate a warning. ;) Click on the link below to read more about lizards.
If you want to spent your holiday in a rural environ don't go to this location. It is situated very close to the highway (A4) approximately 50 meters. Great view from the garden to the highway. Nothing of this at their website, quite deceiving!
If there is one thing I dislike most about Desenzano del Garda, it is the the FLOWER PEOPLE. So nicknamed because these individuals must be sent to school to become that obnoxious!
They weave in and out of restaurants, cafes and wine bars thrusting roses in your face disrupting quiet moments or personal conversations. They will come back repeatedly.
Some of the wait staff will shoo them away and we found they will only disturb you if there are women with you.
Just a small tip about this place and it's buggy bugs. Desenzano is set on a lake so be warned. There are Flies everywhere. So be prepared and bring some spray with you and also something to repel them. This small town also as alot of wild birds everywhere sitting waiting for you to drop some food. They'll sit on your plate if they can so if possible get a table inside!
