Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Elevated just slightly above the cyan shores of Lake Garda and enveloped by blossoming lemon and olive trees, the superior Villa Madrina has been an Inghams favourite for many years. Run by the warm and welcoming Tondini family, the design and ethos of the Villa Madrina is very much one of rest and relaxation with a large outdoor pool set in the verdant gardens and gorgeous wellness centre at your disposal. 

The onsite restaurant is bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows offering lovely views of the luscious gardens and swimming pool. Here, you'll find a mix of regional and Mediterranean delicacies as well as a prestigious and carefully curated wine cellar boasting a selection of Italian spirits and international wines which can be purchased at dinner from the exclusive wine list. 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 apperitivo! 

Hotel Villa Madrina is home to 34 spacious and beautifully decorated rooms which feature antique furniture. As well as gorgeous 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 Lake Garda.
