Lovely family, fantastic choice with the home-made breakfast, on the last morning I had a home-made pannacotta - nothing like the restaurant ones it was fresh and delicious.

Very clean and comfortable place, close to the city center and harbour, good views. Great breakfast! Owners were really friendly and helpfull and they had a really sweet dog - lots of hugs to Beni <3 Todella siisti, mukavat huoneet, näköala Gardajärvelle. Hyvä aamupala, paljon itse tehtyä.. Omistajat todella ystävällisiä ja avuliaita, antoivat paljon infoa paikasta (karttoja, laiva-aikatauluja, ehdotuksia minne... More

The couple that runs the B&B were incredibly sweet. A home-made breakfast is served every morning with loads of cakes. A good place to stay at. Nearby is the small harbour, restaurants and cafés. It takes about 15 min to walk to the train station.

We stayed for three nights in February and had a wonderful time. Gigliola gave us a lot of useful advises, which made our trip even better. I was sceptical about the town and B&B, but I must admit that really enjoyed the trip. Location is very good almost everything is in 5 minutes walking, room was perfect with nice balcony... More

We stayed there 5 nights in October and it was absolutely wonderful! The welcome from the owners, the knowledge of the area, they are real ambassadors of Desenzano. Rooms are so clean, breakfast fantastic, had a great time there every morning. We followed all their recommendations, and of course got their homemade jams and salami to take home! Looking forward...
