Villa Giulia Gargnano, Italy

“Handsome Victorian villa right on the water's edge. Light and airy bedrooms with original decorative flourishes and antiques. Fragrant gardens sloping down to the lakeside. Its unassuming and sophisticated charm transports one to another time. ”

“Once a simple pensione, Villa Giulia is a beautiful, large house in Victorian style with gothic touches, owned by the charming Bombardelli family for more than 50 years. Gardens and terraces run practically to the water’s edge, while inside, airy rooms lead off handsome corridors. Bedrooms in the villa (preferable to those in the annexe and grounds) range from light and modern to large with antiques, beams and balconies with fabulous views.”

They say

“Situated near the “Vittoriale degli italiani”, formerly the residence of Gabriele D'Annunzio, Villa Giulia is the ideal setting for a first-class holiday close to the best locations for culture, music, entertainment and wellness that Lombardy, Veneto and Trentino have to offer. Set amidst the most exclusive locations on Lake Garda, Villa Giulia, a romantic Victorian style building, offers hospitality and courtesy in elegant surroundings. The guest is at the centre of our attention. The informal elegance reflects the expectations of its guests: rooms that have every modern comfort set in exclusive surroundings: swimming pool, whirlpool, wellness area and broadband internet connection service. Villa Giulia is immersed, with its annex buildings, in the greenery of its splendid gardens, close to the blue waters of Lake Garda. The lemon house, the swimming pool, the orange garden, the pathways between the flowerbeds and the picturesque little beach, facing the unrivalled view of Monte Baldo, all add to the charm of this enchanting place.”
