The Secret Garden at Relais Il Giardino Segreto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We stayed in the Red Lanterns room. It was very clean and modern and everything was lovely, including the breakfast and the location - a very short walk to the main street and the lake. It was very busy at Lake Garda (not the fault of the Secret garden!) so we travelled into the mountains to discover other smaller and quieter lakes west of here - Lakes Idro and Iseo, both were lovely and we could swim in them. Thanks Maddalena for a lovely stay.

We spent two wonderful nights at this great B&B. The location was just a few easy minutes walk to the village centre. Our room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was modern and large. The service from everyone was very friendly and made our stay most enjoyable. Their excellent reviews are well deserved.

We spent several nights in this delightful boutique bed and breakfast. It is so clean and well decorated. Maddalena and her mother are charming and very helpful. Breakfast in the conservatory was always a pleasure with home made cakes and quiche. meat, cheese, yoghurt etc. Very conveniently situated for the town centre - about 5 minute walk.

Room Tip: We had the Coral Room which is one of the cheaper ones but it was delightful and had a lovely small...

We spent four nights and were extremely satisfied. It is so well located to be able to get to Venice, Verona or just take a dive around the lake.

Madalena and her Mother are so very pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and the surroundings very well taken care of. Car parking was so convenient.

A short walk brought you into the center of the town with many restaurants and shops.

We highly recommend this wonderful B&B.

We stayed in the White room, the least expensive, I believe, and we were very pleased. It has its own little private patio with table and two chairs. The room was very clean, bed comfortable, and the bathroom had a "rain" shower. The property is very nicely decorated with attention to detail. The location was excellent being very close to the old town of Desenzano Del Garda, and not too far from the train station.(The walk to the train station is uphill. We chose to take a taxi since we had some heavy luggage.) This is a very quiet area, so this is not a place for those who like to party into the night. We did not have a car, but there is room to park one's car on the property, and the safety level is very good. The gate to the property including the cars is locked in the night time hours. There is a police station close by as well. We never felt unsafe in the town either. There are plenty of restaurants to walk to and the pier for the boats to other towns on the lake is very close. We visited Sirmione one day, and the town of Garda on another day. We would recommend both. If you have more time you could include Bardolino and Lazese as well. We had a good wifi connection in our room. The breakfasts are excellent. There are home made treats like quiche made with puff pastry, fruit cakes, and muffins. Also there were croissants, meat and cheeses, boiled eggs, oranges, apples, juice, yogurts from local farms, cereal, rolls, jam and butter, and even some very fresh walnuts from someone's tree. What a feast. The owner will give you good ideas of where to visit. I highly recommend the Relais, and you should stay at least two nights, if not more. It is very relaxing here.

Room Tip: There are only six rooms. Three are on the main level, and three on the second floor. I think they...

Located quite next the bigger concurrent Hotel Nazionale, this cosy villa has nothing to envy to that hotel if you prefer a small luxury and quiet relais. Staff very gentle and helpful. Car parking comfortable and free. The limited number of rooms is a guarantee of privacy and relax. We stayed only 1 night and though we booked a standard bedroom they offered for free a superior double bedroom very spacious and elegant (each room has a different design, we stayed at "Lanterne Rosse" or "Red Lanters" suite). The secret garden - as the hotel's name - is really present in the backyard of the villa, and you can enjoy breakfast in patio placed in it.
Last but not least, just 3 min of walk and you are in main shopping ways of the Desenzano city center. Finally a place in which I will return with pleasure in future!

Room Tip: Superior rooms are really spacious and rich of design more similar to a junior suite (just miss the...

This year we stayed for the 3rd time at the Giardino Segreto. It offers just a few rooms and by this benefits from its private atmosphere. Rooms are very clean and excellent maintained. We usually prefer the "Il grande blu" which lies away from the street and has a private terrace. Owners are always friendly and never hesitate to respond to whatever questions, concerns etc. you may have. We just love this B&B.
