If you wish to explore the shores of the Garda Lake, look no more and book your room straight away at Hotel Gardesana, in Torri del Benaco. But you might not see much of the surroundings as you will probably want to spend most of your time on the ground terrace in front of the hotel, with a glass of Spritz Aperol , enjoying the sight of the tiny port, with the calm waters of the lake reflecting the ever changing light in the background.
Torri del Benaco is a wonderful village, possibly less crowded than many of the neighbouring resorts to which cars have access. The center of the village is reserved for pedestrians, and the elegant multi-century old building which hosts Albergo Gardesana benefits from this quiet environment. The rooms are not huge, but are spotless just as the bathrooms. Breakfast is abundant and will satisfy all tastes. Every morning, we were greeted by the warm smile of Angela, which was such a nice way to start the day ! Try the terrace restaurant at least once in the evening, you will not be disappointed. And if you want something simpler, book a table at the restaurant adjacent to the hotel (run by the same family).
This hotel has loads of charm and history (check the impressive list of famous visitors on the website, Winston Churchill, Maria Callas, Juan Carlos of Spain to name but a few !), but above all it has a soul. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, probably inspired by the guidance of the owner, Dr. Lorenzini (who was kind enough to help my wife with her internet connection). A special word of thanks to Manuela, who answered our countless questions with a smile, and who provided all the information we needed make our stay highly enjoyable.
Nothing is perfect, but our stay at Albergo Gardesana was close to perfection. We will return !
