Summer by the lake
The property was the perfect size for our family of 5. The kitchen was well equiped and there is a washing machine in the bathroom. The access to wifi was important to our 3 teenage children, and that worked perfectly! The pool was super, very quiet and a welcome relief from the summer sun! We didn't have a car but this was not a problem for us. The local town with restaurants, supermarket and access to the lake was close by, and we made use of the buses to take us to Verona, Gardaland and other towns along the lakeside.
We had a brilliant stay at the property for two weeks. We were 2 adults and 2 children. Everything was a described and Antonio was very helpful beforehand helping us with his timetables as we did not rent a car. It is no problem not having a car as you can get everywhere by bus if you are happy to walk to the bus stop which is a 15minutes walk away. We went on a day trip to Venice too on the train and it all worked brilliantly.
Only point I would like to make is that the lakeside is not 500m away as described but just over 1km especially if you want to be on the beach. This did not matter to us as we don't mind walking. The pool was lovely and we enjoyed all the local pizza places as well as ice cream cafe on the main road. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely time.
Hot but so nice!
The oboy thing mission was air condisioning! So hot this summer!
Very nice property
Your property is very nice and loved the books available to guests. Car is handy but everything is within walking distance.
Excellent accomodation in good location
We thoroughly enjoyed our second visit - we stayed last year and were so pleased that we came back for a return visit. The accommodation is of a very high standard and very clean and comfortable. One bedroom is smaller and suitable for children so perfect for families. There is a nice terrace where we eat out some evenings. The location is quiet and there is a lovely swimming pool which is usually empty in the day. We didn't have a car or ride bicycles so it is a good 10 minute walk to where there are lovely restaurants on the lakeside as well as a large supermarket.
Quiet location, great pool.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay here. We drove from UK overnight. Directions we were given were easy to use and we found apartment no problem.
On arrival a couple of minor issues, no toilet rolls (really irritating to have to go shopping within 10 mins of arriving after a 16 hours drive!) and some lights were not working. We did make the agent aware of the lights but nothing was done.
Apartment is spacious and well equipped. Not much space in the kitchen for our food items but had everything we needed.
We brought our bikes with us and there was a space under the stairs which we could keep them securely.
Location is in a quiet residential area with about 20 other apartments and a shared pool. The pool was amazing and we used it everyday. It was quite busy especially in the afternoons. We could walk into Laguna in about 15 mins and there are few good restaurants / pizza places nearby by. Also easy access to the Lake, great for swimming and some watersports.
The walk into Sirmione is about 45 minutes and in the a heat was not pleasant so we generally cycled in along the lake path, takes about 20 mins. You could drive but parking was always a challenge and busy.
Sirmione itself is beautiful and worth a visit. Plenty of restaurants and so many ice cream places.
We also drive to Verona (30 min drive away) and Venice (90 min drive away).
Our location meant it was easy to explore other places round the, either by cycling or driving. Bardinlino and Laszie were lovely.
Antonio was easy to deal with and always replied to any message I sent.
Would happily stay here again or recommend to others.
There are windsurfing and motor boat hire agencies nearby. Bike hire also available in town. The Dolomites are within about 90 mins drive for excellent walking. Local diving centres in the area, if you fancy visiting historical sunken wrecks.
The apartment overlooks the Sgreva Vineyard http://www.sgreva.it/en/
Cascina Maddalena http://www.cascinamaddalena.com and
Ca dei Frati http://cadeifrati.it/en/ are within easy walking distance of the apartment offer booked tours for wine testing and or food.
Sirmione is served by the A4 motorway. The closest airport is Verona airport (30km away) then Milan Bergamo (75km). There are two main train stations a short taxi ride away Desenzano (6km) and Peschiera del Garda.
A few minutes walk will take you to the main bus stop to Verona or Brescia (this will also deliver you outside the mainline train station for Milan and Venice). There are numerous bars restaurants and shops within easy walking distance of the apartment, alternatively local buses will take you the 2 miles of so to the picturesque medieval island village of Sirmione where ferries regularly depart for lake tours.
Relax and indulge by spending a day at the local Aquaria, the thermal well-being centre in Sirmione. This complex features a number of indoor and outdoor geothermally heated pools that open directly onto the splendid shore of Lake Garda.
Each time we visit our apartment there always seems to be something new to discover in the area, and on our last visit we stumbled across some of the agro-tourism farms that have started up in the area. We spent a number of wonderful afternoons cycling through the countryside to enjoy a lovely long lunch surrounded by the vineyards that produced the wine we were drinking. There’s even an agro-tourism dairy farm nearby which a local recommended for the best ice cream and cheese in the area.
To entertain the children there are plenty of day activities to choose from. Nearby Gardaland is a theme park suitable for all the family in Peschiera (15km). Caneva World, 2 theme parks in 1; a movie theme park and water park (20km). Or visit Parco Natura Viva, a wildlife park in Pastrengo (15km).
