- Propery Type:
- village close by
Palazzo sul Garda is a perfect example of the fascinating 18th century Venetian architecture. Set in the lively lake resort of Toscalano Maderno, this spacious and elegant apartment is located on the Piano Nobile (first floor) of a three story building. Outside, the shared garden offers lovely areas for relaxing in the shade or sunbathing by the lake. It sleeps up to 7 people in 3 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom sharing 2 bathrooms.
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 a really authentic experience in a special atmosphere.
This antique property is located just at few kms from the historical centre of 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 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 situated 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.
For more info about this area please see our Intro to the Lakes.
From the house it is possible to walk to the village (500 m) where bars, Tabacchi shops, and the delicious Trattoria San Carlo are located. A larger shopping centre with a pharmacy, grocery shop, post office and bank is less than 1 km away. The nearest train station is in Desenzano del Garda (27 Km)
Palazzo sul Garda benefits of 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 harbour next to the house. During summer season the harbour could be a little bit noisy, just a little, since it is really small!

In the same building there is also the house of the owner (second floor) and 2 other units (ground floor) which are available for rent.
