We have just returned from a fantastic week at Lake Garda. We stayed at Limone Sul Garda which is a beautiful lakside town. The hotel Villa Dirce is excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is great. The room was not huge but very clean and comfortable.
Now the best bit. On opening the doors on to the balcony the views took our breath away! The hotel is built into the rock face so all rooms face out onto the lake and across to Malcesine and the towering Monte Baldo. Every day brought a different view as the clouds rolled over the mountains and lifted to allow the sun to shine through.
Breakfast is a buffet style with plenty of choice. Cereals, fruit, cold meats and cheeses and eggs, boiled or scrambled, with bacon or sausage on some days.
Evening meals are 4 course served to the table plus a buffet salad which is excellent.
The walk into Limone is slightly up and down and takes around 20 to 30 minutes depending on how often you stop to amire the scenery.
Limone is a beautiful town with a nice harbour front and narrow streets leading off with nice restaurants and shops.
We hired a car which personally I think is a must as there are some amazing places to visit. You can cross to other lakeside towns by ferry such as Malcesine, Riva or down to Sirmione but there are many other places away from the Lake that a car really opens up the experience.
Lago de Ledro is one such place. A smaller Lake higher up the mountains and very picturesque. Another is Tremesine, on the top of the mountains above Limone with amazing views and the road up is unbelievable as you appear to be driving in and out of caves. There is a easier drive up but no way near as much fun.
We will definitely be back soon.
