Hotel Ideal has one of the most peaceful locations in Sirmione. It’s right at the end of the peninsula with stunning gardens of olive trees and surrounded by the lake. You’ll feel you’ve found a little oasis in this busy town. Best of all, you’re still within walking distance of the centre of the resort. The ferry port is only ten minutes away and it’s a quick five-minute walk to Aquaria Spa (payable locally) - a fantastic thermal spa with outdoor pools and over 10,000 square metres of pure relaxation. If you don’t fancy the walk into town one day, jump on the tourist train that stops at the Roman grottoes near the hotel. It’s a fun trip for any age.
One of our favourite things to do at this hotel is simply relax by the pool. There’s plenty of loungers and olive trees provide some shade, which is very welcome in the height of summer. If you need to cool off, head for the private beach and take a swim in the lake. Breakfast and dinner at the hotel is a real treat. Apart from the incredible food, it has a lovely terrace that overlooks the lake. It’s the perfect start and end to your day. The rooms have been renovated recently and have been done in a modern style. They all have private balconies and it’s well worth upgrading to a lake view room if you can.
Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.
