Location is great, close to both the train station and the beach of lake Garda and near the shopping center. The people were really welcoming and helpful. The room was very well designed and equipped. Very cosy and charming. Very tasty italian breakfast. Free wifi in the facility. The bathroom was shared but very private, with a bathtub.

This is a very nice place to stay. We really enjoyed it and would consider staying here again if we were back in Lake Garda. The view of the room was great the hospitality was amazing and the food was excellent. The boat terminal is very close by so you can visit multiple towns along the lake.

This is as good as a b&b can be - we got the Italy we were seeking. Lovely family, fantastic choice with the home-made breakfast, on the last morning I had a home-made pannacotta - nothing like the restaurant ones it was fresh and delicious.

The couple that runs the B&B were incredibly sweet. A home-made breakfast is served every morning with loads of cakes. A good place to stay at. Nearby is the small harbour, restaurants and cafés. It takes about 15 min to walk to the train station.

We stayed for three nights in February and had a wonderful time. Gigliola gave us a lot of useful advises, which made our trip even better. I was sceptical about the town and B&B, but I must admit that really enjoyed the trip. Location is very good almost everything is in 5 minutes walking, room was perfect with nice balcony... More
