7 of us (5 adults, 2 small children) spent 10 nights at Villa Garuti.
The location is superb, directly on Lake Garda on the south-western edge.
We stayed in one apartment (for 2) and a house (for 5). Each was reasonably, if not generously equiped for a self-catering stay.
To keep this short, I'll do it as pros and cons:
Pro: superb location, with a small pebble private beach.
Good sized accommodation with a/c. (needed in 30C!).
Plentiful hot water in good bathrooms.
Good outside furniture for sitting and eating.
Friendly and helpful staff.
Near Desenzano and Sirmione, which are both brilliant tourist towns, and only 40 mins from Verona. We also spent a day in Venice but the train fare was €360!
Nice (very cold) pool, with small kids'pool.
Relaxed atmosphere.
Cons:
Dreadful, frustrating on/off slow wi-fi.
No shop at all, so getting supplies is a pain (it's not in the town and 5k from the only supermarket).
Ridiculously restricted hours in on-site restaurant (compulsory booking of breakfast a day in advance?) Just stupid, so always empty.
Pathetic TV channel availability.
Very noisy from next door site at night, WAY into the small hours.
So, we enjoyed it and would sort of recommend it.
Avoid if you don't like dogs, as everyone brings them.
Also be aware that the traffic everywhere around the lake is diabolical and short distances can take an age to travel ( avoid the motorway altogether, the payage exits are a nightmare - stick to the local roads and no matter the cost, get a satnav. No, really.)

Amazing views, lovely atmosphere and staff, can't fault the room (except the curtains were thin but towels helped that), close to good restaurants and a good wine shop.
We stayed in the 'tower room' (number 3) which was air conditioned and had a TV with a couple of English channels. Fridge was very welcome (and very good!) to chill some locally bought food and drink for having on the private lake view balcony.
Other studios were similar but has smaller balconies or with less impressive views.

Highly recommended, would come back :-)

Having spent a week in Villa Garuti apartment, I have to admit, it was an excellent & charming place for holiday. The Staff was very helpful, speaking English, smiling- to start with. The apartment itself, was not too big, however beautifully located, just by the Garda lake, with access to small but clean , almost empty, and beautiful beach. I shall give 5 * for gardener , as the whole area of this resort is very well kept, full of oleanders and other lovely greens and flowers. The location of the resort is very handy, being close to Moniga- lovely small town, and not too far away from Sirmione, the pearl of the Garda lake. Highly recommended for family holiday, as the place is quiet, romantic and safe for kids.

Room tip: Apartments are located closely to the lake, camping is located in the second row.

Ciao from Denmark!! A very nice camping with a smiling and serviceminded staff. Had a quite large pitch near the pool, so we could supervise children. We will definitely come back here. We love Italy!

Dear Nadia,

thank you very much of your kind words.
We are pleased that you all had a wonderful holiday with us.
Our village is an ideal place for families with small children, because it is very quiet and controllable.
It was our pleasure to host a family so nice and kind as yours.
We hope to welcome you again very soon
Greetings
Sara
