“Beautiful, stylish apartments in excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We booked the Flowers apartments based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and the brilliant website for the Flowers which give lots of detail and photos on each apartment. Lilliana was helpful prior to arrival and throughout booking.

The apartments are right in the centre of Desenzano, a 3 minute walk to the boat station, a 15 minute walk (uphill!) to the train station and directly above or 30 seconds walk to excellent bars, restaurants and ice cream shops. Our apartment, Violetta, on the 3rd floor was immacuately clean, stylish and beautifully presented with top of the range kitchen and bathroom. For self-catering the apartment is well equipped with everything you might need and a supermarket selling delicious fresh pasta and bread is literally across the street. The photos on the website do not do the building or the apartement justice! There was some street noise, particularly as we were in town when there were two street parties (election related) but on a normal night it was peaceful and restful, and you cannot beat the location.

The boats run regularly and you can be in Siminone within 20 minutes and, on the hydrofoil, in Malchesne within 1.5 hours. Both are highly recommended as excellent daily trips.

Top tips for eating - Columbo (one minute away) serves excellent, high quality food although is fairly pricey. Restuarante Garda Pizzeria (which is to the left from the main road) was excellent and full of locals when we arrived, away from the main centre gets you more for your money as it was reasonable as well as very tasty.

Room Tip: Lilliana's website has great details on all rooms.

Desenzano is one of my favourite villages in Italy and Flowers is the perfect place to stay. Situated right in the heart of town and conveniently located above Caffe Italia, which is a great place for a glass of wine, the location is ideal for either relaxing by the lake or as a base for exploring the surrounding regions. Liliana is a fantastic host and can help you fit in like a local.

We spent 3 nights in one of theFlowers apartments at the end of September. The apartment was tastefully decorated,well equipped and spotlessly clean. We loved the central location - a few steps from the old harbour and in the centre of the shops and bars. Liliana was very helpful and catered for all our needs. We would definately recommend these apartments and hope to return some time in the future.

The apartments are very spacious and comfortable, inlcude all kitchen facilities and washing machine. The pictures on the booking web-sites are absolutely true. The location is very central just on the main square, not far from ferry by which you can reach any place of Lake Garda. We stayed here in the very beginning of low season in October, so there was very calm in the mornings and evernings. Please note that is an apparments, so you should take with you your shampoo, shower gel and all this staff. I would like to visit this place again in the high warm season to enjoy good weather and wonderful Lake!

We stayed for 5 nights in 2 apartments and couldn't have asked for more. Lilianne was very helpful and friendly and were pleased that we followed her suggested activities. The apartments are spacious, clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location is ideal which meant that we didn't have to eat in much. You are able to enjoy living the Italian lifestyle of sitting out in the evenings and then retreat to the quiet of the apartment. The restaurant under the apartment serves delicious croissants and coffee for breakfast through to very good quality food from lunchtime to evening. Point you may wish to consider is that the lift is available from first floor only i.e. you need to walk up set of steps before you get into the lift. We had a baby and pushchair but this was not a problem for us.

Room Tip: Apt 2 - balcony, 2 beds and bathrooms. Apt 6 2 beds + mezanine and 1 bathroom.

We were so impressed with the Flowers Apartments and Lilianne, we were there for six nights. It was a great experience because the apartment was immaculate, well equiped, large rooms and included a washer which was easy to use. The apartment and all the appliances and furniture appeared to be brand new.

It was located in the city center and convenient to the ferries on Lake Garda; steps to the lake; surrounded by many restaurants, stores, gelato shops and the best of Desenzano del Garda.

Lilianne was amazing in accomodating us with all our requests. She was lovely to work with, very responsive and understood and spoke English well. The apartment has a lift after walking up an initial set of stairs. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the Railroad Station. Down hill from station to the apartment but up hill en route back to the station; a 10 euro taxi ride. Wi-fi was available for 10 euros for four hours which can be used over a period of days. However, due to some issue, it was not available the entire week we were there - more a problem with the service provider and not Flower Apartments.

Highly recommend you view the Flowers Apartments web site as it is exactly what you will see if you book there. The pictures do not misrepresent any thing.
