Garda, or sometimes Garda Town to avoid confusion, was the 10th Century fishing village which gave Lake Garda its name. Built on a scoop of shingle, today the bay is just as charming, but the town is pierced by the busy road around the lake so it can be quite busy in summer, and the best places to stay in Garda tend to be just out of town away from the traffic.
If you stay in Garda it’s definitely worth taking a boat out to nearby Isola del Garda, a stunning private island with an impressive Gothic villa and beautiful formal gardens. The boat from Garda leaves on Wednesday morning.
A hot spot for bikers, groups and families - this secluded villa has a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The peaceful countryside and large garden provide the perfect place to unwind. Bedrooms are spacious and homely- some spread over two floors. Helpful staff can organise excursions.
