“An oasis of peace and tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We stayed in this B&B in summer last year for 2 weeks. We stayed in the Desert de Tenere room which was a very large room overlooking the garden.
The bathroom was very big with a wonderful walk in shower. The Hotel is quite new and very well appointed and is immaculately clean. There is air conditioning/heating in the room which worked well and fairly quietly, also the windows & door to the outside terrace have electrically operated louvres which can be set to any preference from fully open to closed which does keep out the daylight and incidentally also makes the room very secure.
The breakfast in the conservatory was continental but more than adequate with fresh coffee and tea on tap.
The hotel is set just off one of the main roads but none the less does not suffer from traffic noise and is about a 10 minute walk to the lake and town down a gently sloping side road.There is ample room for parking on the premises and the gates are shut at night.
The Mother and her daughter (who mainly runs the hotel) are superbly helpful and pleasant people with nothing too much trouble.
All in all we both enjoyed our stay here and would thoroughly recommend this hotel as a place to stay in either for a night or much longer.

I convey my profound thanks to Maddalena and her mother senora Elizabeth for their kindness and hospitality. You made my vacation a real holiday!
I stayed here for 1 week with my family and all of us were happy.
We stationed ourselves in Il Grande Blu room with great design and cosy terrace. It was great to sit on it in early morning and listen how everything arround was waking up.
Breakfast started with meat, cheese, eggs,yogurt and filling pies, cherishingly cooked by Maddalena. The cup of great cappuccino helped you to begin every day with positive emotions.
If I ever will be in this region once more the only one variant of staying - Gardino Segreto.

We stayed for 3 nights and were very impressed with the standard of accommodation. High quality furnishings and decor, spacious, excellent breakfast, so much choice of personally baked quiches, tarts, pastries, fresh fruits, serials, jams, toast, meats, cheeses, eggs, first class cappuccinos, something seldom offered in this type of accommodation. I had to be strong not to eat too much. Would certainly recommend to others.

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.
