Hotel Villa Dirce

  • Lake Garda, Italy, Limone

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

We love the views you get from Hotel Villa Dirce. It’s built into the cliff above the town and the views from here are incredible. Take in the fresh mountain air as you relax on the rooftop pool. Once you relax here, you’ll find it hard to leave. The centre of Limone isn’t too far away – you can walk it in 20 minutes or borrow one of the hotel’s bikes and cycle there in half the time. Make sure you’re up for the challenge of cycling back though as the hill is quite steep (we don’t recommend this hotel for people with walking difficulties).

The hotel’s gardens are well established and you can smell the lemon trees as you wonder through the resort. The rooms are fairly traditional but comfortable enough to come back to after exploring Lake Garda all day. Each of them has a balcony with amazing views of the lake. You’ll also enjoy the view from the restaurant, where you’ll have Italian favourites for dinner.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 15 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Limone

Limone is one of the best resorts for hiking on Lake Garda. It’s right at the bottom of the mountain and steep, cobbled streets throughout the town lead up to some fantastic viewpoints. There’s nothing better than taking an early morning walk and enjoying uninterrupted views over the lake from your quiet vantage point. For the more serious hikers, there’s around 70 trails to choose from of varying lengths and difficulties. Grab your boots and set of early – don’t forget to take your camera!

If walking isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty of reasons to pick Limone as your base. The town is beautiful with colourful buildings and vibrant lakeside promendade. During the summer the evenings come alive with live music concerts in the square. There’s also regular ferries to other towns so exploring Lake Garda is easy. Limone is filled with traditional restaurants using the lemons that grow all around. Take a visit to Limonaia Del Castel to learn about the town’s history with this citrus fruit.

Things to do in resort

Holidays in Limone, Lake Garda give visitors a wide variety of things to do and see. Visit the colourful lakeside with two small harbours, old arches and a variety of shops - leather goods are a speciality. With excellent walking trails and fireworks displays up to four times per week, cultural visits and concerts in the square most weekends, this truly is a resort with a seemingly never ending list of things to do. The shops stay open until late and Limone's bars and promenade really comes to life in the evening.
