Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Villa Madrina is one of our favourite hotels in Garda and we’ve worked with the Tondini family for years. It has a great location – close enough to the centre that you can walk there in less than ten minutes and far enough away so that you can enjoy a peaceful holiday. Spend at least one day relaxing by the pool, which is in the hotel’s lovely gardens. There’s a bar nearby for refreshments and you can see the lake from its terrace. You can’t miss the spa either – it has a contemporary design and you’ll find a steam bath, whirlpool, fitness area and massage rooms there.

Inside the rest of the hotel there’s an old-world style. The rooms have lovely pieces of antique furniture and views of the lake. When it’s time for dinner, try and grab a spot by the floor-to-ceiling windows so you can carry on enjoying the views. The restaurant serves up hearty Italian dishes and the menu changes daily. After, head back to the bar for glass of local Italian wine.

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.
