Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Poiano is on a hill on the outskirts of Garda. That means that you get to enjoy some great lake views from the gardens and pool. Upgrade your room and you can even enjoy them from the comfort of your own balcony. The grounds of the hotel are large and the rooms are located in low-rise buildings that are spread throughout the gardens. The pool is Olympic-sized, so get some laps in while you’re here. Or, just grab a sun lounger and admire the views instead! We love the hotel's spa – it has a heated saltwater pool, whirlpool and sauna. It’s not just about relaxation here though. If you want to stay active, play a game of tennis on one of six courts or hire a bicycle and explore the area.

Breakfast is served each morning in the dining room and out on the terrace when it’s sunny. Fill up before heading out for a walk along any of the hiking routes close by or down to Garda, which is about two kilometres away (a free shuttle is available).

Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Garda is one of the most charming resorts on Lake Garda. It’s hard not to feel relaxed when you stay here. Its wide promenade is perfect for leisurely strolls. The trees lined alongside it provide a welcome shade and the views of the lake are peaceful and awe-inspiring. The promenade stretches for miles and connects to Bardolino - this makes it perfect for cyclists too.

The medieval centre is just as pleasant to walk around. The shops here are varied and there’s a large market every Friday. Join the locals as they shop for fresh food and find some souvenirs to take home with you. In the evenings, head back to the lakefront and pick a spot in one of the many bars here. Make yourself comfortable with an aperitivo and enjoy a bit of people watching.

There’s a ferry port with regular ferries to nearby towns so getting out and about is easy. You’re also close to Verona so try and fit in a night at the opera if you can.
