Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

From its tranquil position elevated above Lake Garda and surrounded by verdant gardens and fruit trees, the beautiful Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra offers exceptionally attentive service provided by the warm and welcoming Montagnoli family. The three villas Gardenia, Oleandra and Zagare that comprise the hotel have been renovated in recent years and are home to simple yet elegant rooms with stunning views of Lake Garda and the mountains beyond. 

The flourishing gardens in which the villas are settled offer unrivaled panoramic views amongst the palms, olive trees and bougainvillea flowers yet despite this feeling of tranquility and peace, you are just five minutes from the hustle and bustle of Limone centre. The perfect spot for those looking to relax and escape the day to day, Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra has a spectcular pool and sun terrace where you can bask in the mountain sun as you gaze out over the cyan waters of Lake Garda. There is also a private path from the hotel which leads to a waterfall and incredible viewing spot, please note the route takes around 1 hour.  Guests of the Montagnoli family also have access to the Giardino di Rose spa which is home to a sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish bath and solarium, all ideal to rest any weary limbs after a day of exploring Limone's quaint, cobbled streets down which you can find a plethora of boutique and artisan shops - not to mention some of the best Gelato in the north of Italy!

The dining room which spills out onto the terrace overlooking the lake is where you'll take breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is a rich buffet service with a wide range of both hot and cold options and dinner is a four course affair with a selection of wonderful and traditional Italian cuisine on offer. On one evening each week from Summer 2020, the owners of the Gardenia & Oleandra lead a walk through the town which you can join onto to get some insight and local knowledge of this stunning resort. 

*Please note that due to the Villa La Gardenia and Oleandra having no lifts and accessible via a short but steep slope, it is not recommended for guests with mobility issues.

Meals

Breakfast at Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra is a buffet service of hot and cold options with freshly baked breads, pastries and fruit fresh from the garden. 

The restaurant at Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra is home to some of the finest cooking in Limone. In the bright and airy dining room, you'll find more than just delectable dishes - there's soul and an ethos of reliance on the land and organic ingredients. 'Grandma Anna' as she is known has been a culinary force of nature at Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra for years and holds the family recipes close to her chest. With the help of chef Davide and his team, dishes such as Lake Garda trout en croute, beef roulade with vegetables grown in the hotel garden and risotto with local truffles and mushrooms, you'll be spoiled for choice. 

The hotel also uses their fruit trees to make their own delightfully sweet liquers such as Limoncello and Arancello so be sure to save some room for a post-dinner aperitif! 

Every Wednesday, dinner is served over on the lake view terrace (weather permitting).

Limone

Nestling alongside lemon groves, beneath the cliffs of the north-western shore of Lake Garda, Limone is a picture postcard resort - an artist’s paradise. Houses covered in blossoming geraniums and bougainvillaea line the old, cobbled streets that lead up from the lakeside. The lakeside is equally colourful with two small harbours, old arches and a variety of shops - leather goods are a speciality.

There are wonderful opportunities in the resort of Limone for walking as well as fireworks displays, cultural visits and concerts in the square most Saturdays. Limone’s bars and promenade really come to life in the evening. Our hotels in Limone offer you a great choice of accommodation for the perfect stay.
