This locality


Lake Garda, whose waters are famed for their transparency, is the largest in Italy and was much loved by Virgil, Catullus and Goethe. The town of Desenzano is the largest and liveliest in the south of Lake Garda; its central picturesque piazza is situated on a cobbled pedestrian walk that winds its way around the contour of the lake, providing a wonderful opportunity to experience the daily passeggiata and inspiring views up the lake. Conveniently close to the main motorway and railway that connects Milan and Venice, it is a great base from which to explore the North of Italy. > more

Villa Technical Description

Your Comments

Client: We have never stayed in a cleaner, more comfortable apartment. Everything is beautifully maintained and there is everything you need for a holiday -and more. There is no air conditioning, but the house is beautifully cool all the time- and we stayed in August. The views down the lake are fantastic and the garden is very pretty. The pool is bigger than it appears on the photos and ideal for serious swimming and playing games. The owners are very discreet, but also friendly and welcoming and we were offered delicious tomatoes, figs and other produce from their own gardens. It is very easy to reach shops, supermarkets, the lake and the other tourist attractions from the house. We had a really happy holiday!

Thank you so much for your comments. We are glad that you liked Monte Pico and look forward to having you again as our guests! 10 Aug 2007
Client: The holiday at Monte Pico was fabulous. We were more than satisfied with the standard of accommodation and cleanliness. The Villa itself was beautiful and the owners were very friendly and were only too happy to help out with advice. We would certainly not hesitate in recommending Monte Pico to anybody looking for a holiday in Lake Garda. I would suggest that a little more emphasis be given to the length and gradiant of the driveway in the literature about Monte Pico. If people wish to get Taxis it was necessary for us, on a couple of occasions to walk down to the road, which older people may find difficult. However, I must say that all the Taxi drivers were more than happy to drive you to the door on the way home. Andy B, 10/08/07

Client: We had a wonderful holiday, Monte Pico was such a beautiful place! Paola as well as the owners of the villa were very kind and helped us when we had someproblems, like for example the strike on Milan Malpensa airport..which caused a delay on our flight, and yet we get to stay in Monte Pico until that saturday 28th evening, and that helped us very much! We all fell in love with Italy and the Garda lake area, we also visited Venice, which was a great experience. Thank you very much for all of your services, we have recommended Monte Pico to many people here in Finland. Have a nice summer, Grazie e arrivederci! Milla
