Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Elevated slightly above the shores of Lake Garda and enveloped by lemon and olive trees, the superior Villa Madrina has been an Ingham's favourite for many years. Run by the welcoming Tondini family, the hotel encourages rest and relaxation, with a large outdoor pool set in the gardens and a wellness centre at your disposal. 

The onsite restaurant is bright and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows offering lovely views of the gardens and pool. Here, you'll find a mix of regional and Mediterranean delicacies as well as a carefully curated wine cellar boasting a selection of Italian spirits and wines. There is also a bar which opens up onto the sprawling lawn at the front of the property and offers incredible views of the not so distant lake front as you sip your evening aperitivo.

Hotel Villa Madrina is home to 34 spacious and beautifully decorated rooms that feature antique furniture. As well as garden, pool or lake views, the rooms have modern amenities including some with balconies and whirlpool baths. 

Located just a short stroll from the lakeside where you can find the ferry port and bus station, Garda is a wonderful base for travelling and exploring the other resorts on the lake.

Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach.
