We had a spacious room and immaculate bathroom overlooking the quiet garden at the back of the property. Its located just off one of the main routes into town, but we heard no traffic noise as the house is well set back. Breakfasts were served in the conservatory, and the cakes and savouries were a treat. But the best bit... More

We visited for 3 days while in Verona for VinItaly. What a wonderful place to come back to every night. Magdalena was pleasant, kind & helpful!! We missed the last morning train into Verona & she not only found us a rental car (in less than 5 min) but negotiated a better rate for us. EuroCar also took very good... More

Throughoutour stay we were constantly seeing the care and thought put into ensuring the perfect stay. The room was really well decorated with a wonderful shower room and spotless. Breakfast was excellent, served in a bright conservatory. There was a relaxing lounge area and the proprietors were always checking and volunteering help, clearly dedicated to delivering the perfect stay.

We just enjoyed a mere 24 hours at this lovely, and centrally located B&B in Desenzano del Garda. The property is welcoming, clean and equipped with all the modern comforts one would like. The owners were on hand and were lovey and helpful. Our room was large, comfortable and the bathroom large and well appointed. Our room il Desserto also... More

The hotel has been decorated so tastefully and breakfast is traditional and delicious. The owners are very polite and helpful. We will remember this place! It's near the lake and Sirmione, which is one of the most quaint little towns we have visited.

In looking for a B&B on Lake Garda, our primary considerations were to find very comfortable accommodation in case of inclement weather and a location easily accessible by public transit. Most importantly, we look very carefully at comments about the host as it speaks volumes about the accommodation. And we were very pleased on all counts with our four nights... More

Small house, run by the same owners, few guests only and a family environment. The most pleasant note : super cleaning in the public areas but, specially in the... More

Everything has already been said about this lovely property, and it is totally representative. Maddalena and Elizabetta excelled themselves in helpfulness, even allowing us to store a suitcase whilst on a side trip to Venice for 3 days. We had asked for room advice as to our preference for a sunny room and stayed in the Great Blue which was... More
