Villa La Gardenia & Oleandra is a real hidden gem in Limone. It’s located above the town so you get fantastic views of the lake– you could sit in the garden admiring the lake and mountain scenery all day.

A tranquil getaway on the lake

There are three villas making up the hotel; each surrounded by palm and olive trees. The pool and sun terrace are the best places to relax and top up your tan. The restaurant also takes advantage of the views with a terrace overlooking the lake. This hotel is perfect if you're looking for somewhere very peaceful and a bit out of the way. It's been done up to a very high quality, and as a result has people coming back year on year.

Private paths and guided walks

The centre of Limone isn't far away, but far enough that the hotel feels like it's own private oasis. Take your time wandering around the old cobbled streets and boutique shops in the old town and if you can, join the hotel owners on their weekly guided walk – it’s a great way to get to know Limone better. There's even a private path that leads straight from the hotel to a waterfall and an incredible panoramic view-point. The walk takes about an hour but there are places to stop and rest along the way.

Limone sits on the shores of Lake Garda, the village is built into the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains near Trento. It’s a romantic village of old houses, winding alleys, flowered balconies, shops, taverns, bars and restaurants, with a church dating back to the 10th century. In the summer, a weekly market sells local products - lemons, olive oil, wine, cheese - and a fishermen’s museum tells the story of Limone’s history. 

Walking is a great way to explore the Limone landscape

Easy lakeside trails and challenging walks stretch from lake-level up to 1,000 metres around Limone. There are no gondola's so if you want those summer views from the top you'll need to work hard, but it's very rewarding! Whatever path you choose, the views are immense.

Boat tours of Lake Garda and visits to surrounding towns

Taking a boat to and from Limone is where you’ll get the best views of the village, especially in the summer. The ferries are a quick way to visit other areas around Lake Garda, and you can take tours that follow the coastline and its historic spots, docking at other charming Lake Garda villages. By using the boats to reach other towns in Lake Garda means you can reach plenty of other walking starting points too! 

Italian food & wine

The food and wine scene in Limone is great! Head out to local restaurants and bars for the best food and atmosphere. We'd recommend looking for an off the beaten track restaurant, for the most authentic Italian food and drink. Lake Garda is famous for its vineyards, with traditions and roots in the Bronze Age; try Aperitivo Chiarè, a pink sparkling wine spritzer made from local rosé, or a glass of classic Bardolino - you just can't beat a glass on a warm summers day. For a small village, there are a surprising number of good bars in Limone.

Biking around Limone

In 2018 the Limone sul Garda section of the Ciclopista del Garda (Garda Cycle Path) was completed, and takes you on a stunning lakeside trail along Limone’s coastline, you can also walk along too if you fancy a slower paced option. The path is built into the rocky cliffs, hanging 50 metres above Lake Garda. You can even cycle on it at night, thanks to LED flood lighting. Head inland and there’s a paradise of dirt tracks and mule paths for mountain biking, and kilometres more paved roads for cycling.
