The property is located just a few kilometers 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. Garda has been a favored 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. From the apartment it is possible to walk to the village (500 meters) 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 1 km. The nearest train station is in Desenzano del Garda (27 Km). The apartment is situated in a quiet location since the road leading to the house is used only by other people living in the area or people going to the Porticciolo, a little public harbor next to the house. On Lake Garda you can find facilities for almost any sort of sport and activity, from windsurfing to sailing, from golf to rock-climbing, from bungee-jumping to trekking.
