This was our 2nd trip to La Filanda. Last year with 3 boys, 12, 7, 4, this year with a new addition, 11 months. The boys love it as there is a beautiful pool with diving board, baby pool, tennis courts, soccer pitch, table tennis, volleyball and a playground all on the grounds. Our apartment was perfect this year with a small garden and ourdoor dining, which made it easier with the baby. Kitchen/living/dining room downstairs with 2 bedrooms upstairs, a large master and boys room with 3 singles and bathroom. 2 minutes walk up the lane is Moninelle Piazza which has restaurants, cafes and gelaterias and a stunning view of the lake. There were nightly festivals on when we vistited this year with street markets and music. We walked up to La Rocca this time with spectacular 360deg views of the lake, stunning! We took a boat from Porto Portese that let us off in Sirmione and Lazise and it was a brilliant day out. Desenzano is wonderful with it's internal harbour and a day trip to Verona is well worth it (about an hour's drive). We found a lovely public beach, very quite with a large oak tree for shade called La Spiaggia Zocco (bring beach shoes though). There is so much to see and explore around Lake Garda and La Filanda is the perfect base. The staff are very kind and helpful. Thank-you Novella, Sukhy, and Allessandra for all your help with our lost luggage. You were so kind. Thank-you Barbara for the wonderful breakfasts and smile every morning. A washer-dryer is very helpful with a family as are the toys left behind by other families, the bbq area and you can borrow bikes if you're feeling energetic. We were given a travel cot and highchair so didn't have to bring anything. All in all it feels a very safe area, perfect for families. We can't wait to return.
