Perks for the Parents

This family home on the south side of Lake Garda has a green back garden and lake views, and is well located for exploring the lake and its surrounding towns. The open kitchen is well equipped for family meals and large upstairs deck provides refreshing lake views. It is close to bike paths, charming marinas, lakeside promenades, boutiques and cafes. It is also central to towns including Verona, Venice, and Milan, and the natural thermal springs of Sirmione.

Why Kids Love it

The property has plenty of toys and books for children under 10 as well as an outdoor trampoline, playhouse, family bicycles and scooters. There is a small park right in front of the property with swings and a slide for smaller children. Beautiful bike paths close to the house are a refreshing way to explore the countryside and lake views. Easily access the nearby safari park, aquarium, and Cavour water park. A travel crib, high chair, changing table and baby bath can be provided.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. Stair gates can be provided if needed. Connecting multiple electrical appliances at the same time can cause a power surge; please do not connect any two of the kitchen oven, microwave, tumble dryer or hair dryer at the same time. Garden sprinklers are programmed to water the lawn at 5am. During the summer months, anti-mosquito protection is advised for the evening. Note that it is best to avoid driving around the lake on Sundays as traffic can be very intense.

We are an English/Italian family of 4 living on beautiful Lake Garda in Northern Italy. We love travelling and exploring new places whenever we can. We also love the outdoors. Some of our favourite things are cycling, ski-ing, beaching, walking, horse-riding and BBQ-ing!

We've enjoyed a lovely holiday in the Fondrini Residence at Lake Garda. Great property with everything a family with three young kids could wish for. Totally relaxing to have the kids play in the garden while relaxing in the hammock or the lounge chairs. Emma was extremely helpful and responded to any queries we had instantly. The house is in a quiet part of the small village Padenghe sul Garda, from which you can get easily to places like Salò, Desenzano and Sirmione. Plenty of nice restaurants in the area, Emma had provided a list of personal recommendations which we tried (and approved !) most of. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone who is looking for a 'home away from home' experience.

Lake Garda, Italian Lakes

Watersports and cappuccinos

Italy’s largest lake is ripe for an unforgettable family vacation. Try canoeing and other water sports on its crystal clear waters, drive scenic routes and visit medieval castles, or just sip cappuccinos while the kids paddle at the water’s edge. Gardaland is a particular family favorite, Italy’s largest theme park with rollercoasters for all the family, and Parco Natura Viva, a nearby zoo, offers a drive-through experience. Don’t miss the cable car up Monte Baldo, reached from Malcesine on Lake Garda, for bird’s eye views.
