Set in the lively lake resort town of Toscolano Maderno, this spacious and elegant apartment is a perfect example of the fascinating 18th century Venetian architecture.  Palazzo sul Garda is a beautiful, classic rental located on the Piano Nobile (first floor) of a three story building. Outside, the lovely shared garden offers charming areas for relaxing in the shade or sunbathing by the lake.  Palazzo sul Garda has an exquisite view overlooking the little “Porticciolo” (small harbor) and Lake Garda. It is furnished with classical antiques and all the rooms are decorated with large frescos.  It's the perfect place for guests who are looking for a truly authentic Italian experience in a unique atmosphere. It sleeps up to 8 people in 3 double bedrooms and 1 small bedroom with a French size bed, all sharing 2 bathrooms.

This villa is available for short stays for a minimum of four nights for certain mid and low season weeks. Please contact us for details.

Special discount: Deduct 4% from your rental price for non-refundable payment in full at the time of booking.

In the same building as the rental there are also the house of the owner (second floor) and 2 other units (ground floor), which are available for rent. For this reason the garden (800 sqm) is shared with other people.  The main part of the garden and the furnished marble column patio are exclusively reserved for the guests of Palazzo sul Garda.  A table for eight and four lounge chairs are provided with the rental.  Other guests will use the garden only as a way to access the lake.  The main central hallway opens onto the lovely gardens.  Parking for 2 cars is available in the hallway. It is also suggested that guests use the very convenient public parking lots in front of the building.

Check availability

This antique property is located just at few kilometers from the historical center of Toscolano Maderno, one of the most popular holiday resort towns on Lake Garda. With its clear, clean, and warm water, sunny beaches, mild climate and Mediterranean vegetation, Lake Garda is like a small sea set between the last spurs of the Alps and the Lombardy plain. Garda has been a favored spot since ancient Roman times (some Roman ruins still remain in the area) and has been lauded by poets and writers through the ages, including Catullus, Goethe, Joyce and D'Annunzio.  Lake Garda is a marvelous combination of history, natural beauty and modern indulgences.  There are many interesting and stunning little towns situated along the coast or in the hills such as Salò (8 km), Gardone Riviera (4 km), and beautiful Sirmione (37 km) - all of which are rich in history, culture, good restaurants and shops.

From the house it is possible to walk to the village (500 m) where bars, Tabacchi shops, and the delicious Trattoria San Carlo are located. A larger shopping center with a pharmacy, grocery store, post office and bank is less than 1 km away. The nearest train station is in Desenzano del Garda (27 Km). Palazzo sul Garda benefits from a quiet location. The road leading to the house is used only by other people living in the area or people going to the Porticciolo - a little public harbor next to the house.  During the summer season the harbor may be busy with people since it is a small, yet popular harbor. A splendid pietra serena staircase (36 steps) gives access to the first floor – Piano Nobile - where Palazzo sul Garda is located. The whole floor measures 700 sqm and it is completely decorated with frescoes dating back to 1798, as well as antique cotto floors.

Palazzo sul Garda consists of a spacious, bright and frescoed living room overlooking the lake, the Porticciolo and the garden.  A small sitting room features a TV, CD player and access to the balcony overlooking the garden.  A large frescoed dining room comes with a dining table suitable for eight.  The kitchen is equipped with a gas range stove, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, toaster, and juice maker. 

- There is one large and frescoed double bedroom with an en suite bathroom with shower. 
- Two double bedrooms share a mosaic bathroom with Jacuzzi shower. 
- One bedroom with French size bed.
