Hotel Degli Olivi is a little oasis in the centre of Garda. There’s only 12 rooms here so you really get that ‘home away from home’ feel. You’ll be treated as one of the family when you stay. It’s a lovely atmosphere to come back to at the end of the day, once you’ve explored Garda or taken a ferry to one of the other resorts on the lake. The gardens have been well-loved and tended to. Beautiful roses grow next to the olive and cypress trees and there’s even an outdoor whirlpool, making it impossible not to feel relaxed. The conservatory overlooks the garden, so you can enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings while you have your breakfast each morning. Head to the dining room for delicious home-cooked Italian dinners. They have an excellent wine menu here too!
If you stay here, you’ll also be able to use the Gardacqua centre free of charge (normally €25 per person). This is a spa centre with two pools and plenty of wellness facilities. It’s just a 15-minute (about 1.6 kilometre) walk away or you can jump on the free local bus.
Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.
