Quirky yet traditional property with gorgeous well equipped rooms in a fantastic location. Gigilio was very helpful and welcoming. Couple minutes walk to lakeside where you can get a ferry for just €6 return to Simione. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby too. We had the lake view suite which was beautiful.

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.

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.

“I would recommend the rooms with balcony with a view to lake and mountains. Chilling out in a late evening on the balcony with a view to lake and mountains is breathtaking.”

“Our lake view room was spacious and bright and also very quiet. There is a wonderful interesting seniors center behind the B & B with activities during the day, but at night all you can hear is the ringing of the town bells until around 11:00 and they welcome you at around 7:00 a.m. Music to our ears!!! There are numerous rooms to choose from including an historic castle view as well as their lovely garden view.”
