“Superb Views, Quiet Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2008

Just got back from a fantastic stay at the villa. Agree with previous reviews that you require a car as the centre of Gardone and Salo are to far to walk. For the best pizza (and I tried a few!), visit the restaurant above the villa. The views were superb, the villa clean and great verandah with sunbeds. Pool also clean, cool and quiet. As per previous reviews, owners don't talk English so visit Tourist Info in Gardone for all necessities at beginning of holiday.

  • Liked — Views & peace and quiet
  • Disliked — too far to walk to lakefront - need a car.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2007

We just arrived home from a nice relaxing stay at Villa Panorama in Gardone. The accommodation is very clean and the owners are really friendly, allthough they don't speak too much English, don't forget the pack your phrase book!

We had a hire car which was definitely needed as the road is too steep to walk back from the few restaurants at Il Vitorialle. We also found this a nice place to tour the lake from as it's so central but if you like it lively then this is definitely not the place for you.

As it's the kind of place people tend to use as a base, going out in the day, we found the balcony difficult to use as we could hear our neighbours conversation in the evening - this is because it really is so quiet up here! However if you wanted a lazy day in soaking up that great view I'm sure you would have it all to yourselves.

We also had a bit of a complaint about our neighbour's (apartment 11) base guitar - it wasn't loud but the vibration sound was a little annoying. I would guess they own this apartment. Our room was one of the studio's and definitely big enough so this was good. The accommodation also has a pool which looked great, not much room around it so if you get there early you might not get too disturbed.

All in all, we would recommend Villa Panorama for a really good value base whilst touring the lake - we hadn't been self catering before and it was quite handy to save some cash by cooking sometimes - no oven though. We also couldn't find the bars that were mentioned that are near the lake - we tried looking in the car but the traffic isn't exactly slow in Italy so we must have missed the turn!

Other lovely places around the lake which we found on our touring and would highly recomend for a stay would be Sirmione, Riva, Lazise, Garda and Malcesine. All these had a choice of bars and resturants on your door step and of course superb views.

Having spent many hours in research, we settled upon these apartments. We had not been to this part of Italy before and we were not dissappointed. The apartments are within a 3-storey block, in a secluded spot abut a mile above the town of Gardone Riviera. Our apartment was "type b" with a seperate double bedroom as well as 2 sofa beds. TV was provided along with a nice kitchenette. No aircon.

I have stayed in bigger apartments but there was plenty of room for two. However, the view over the lake more than makes up for any inadequacies. It is stunning; and with each apartment getting its own terrace, with sun beds provided, it was difficult to tear ourselves away and do any shopping or sightseeing.

Spotlessly clean and the friendly (non-english speaking) owner lives on site. You will need a car though (parking provided).
