Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra

  • Lake Garda, Italy, Limone

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra has some of the best views in Limone. It’s located above the town so they’re uninterrupted – we could sit in the gardens all day and just admire the lake and mountain scene. There’s three villas that make up the hotel and each is surrounded by palm and olive trees. You’ll find a pool between the buildings and a sun terrace where you can top up your tan. The restaurant also takes advantage of the views with a terrace overlooking the lake. You can expect traditional Italian food for dinner and some great wines to accompany it.

The centre of Limone is only five minutes away. Take your time here and enjoy the quaint cobbled streets and unique shops. If you can, join the owners when they do their weekly tour of the town – it’s a great way to get to know it better. If you’re feeling adventurous, there’s a private path that leads you straight from the hotel to a waterfall and an incredible viewing spot. The journey takes about an hour but there are places to stop and rest along the way.

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!

What to see on a Limone holiday

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

Things to see and do

Limone’s not too far from Malcesine so we recommend hopping onto a ferry and visiting the town. Make sure you head up Monte Baldo if you’re a fan of walking and great views! Riva is easy to get to, too. There’s lots of little nooks to explore in Limone. The Church of Saint Rocco is a hidden gem. We love visiting the oil mill for some tastings.

Food & drink

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 the citrus fruit. The restaurants and bars on Limone’s promenade really come alive in the evening. It’s a great place to enjoy a slow dinner.

Activities

There are so many trails in and around Limone – from flat routes along the lakeside to more challenging climbs that take you up into the mountains. Our favourite is the walk to Punta dei Larici. It takes you along the lake and when you get to the top, the views are incredible. Keep an eye out for the guided walks offered by the tourist office. They normally run between June and September.
