To make the most of your holiday we strongly recommend that you hire a car as getting around the lake without one is very difficult.

Thanks ever so much, we had a fantastic time. We really enjoyed staying in the apartment, it was big enough & cool enough even when the weather got warm, really well kitted out. The drive up from Dongo is er, interesting, but we got into the swing of Italian driving pretty quickly. Love the view of the mountains opposite & we enjoyed Garzeno's alleyways and byways. Our pretty basic italian was useful enough, but the villagers were really helpful. The folder of activities is excellent too'

'The apartment was very warm, cosy and well-equipped and we played many games of Cluedo! We liked the village very much - it was very quaint and rustic and we visited the bakery every morning-the locals were very friendly even though our ability to have a conversation in Italian is somewhat limited!'
