Between the cobblestones of the castle and the skies of the lake, in a sixteenth century palace, unique for beauty and location. In the most characteristic street of the old town, a nest between the Desenzano old roofs. Exclusive terrace and spectacular 360 degree views over the lake, the castle, the Baldo Mountain and the morainic hills of the Garda. Soft colors, delicate furnishings; Silence, quiet and poetry in the historic center. Only problem: it will be very difficult to start again.

Tra i ciottoli del castello e i cieli del lago, in un palazzo cinquecentesco bilocale unico per bellezza e posizione. Nella via più caratteristica del centro storico, un nido tra i tetti della Desenzano vecchia. Terrazzo esclusivo e vista spettacolare a 360 gradi sul lago, sul castello, sul Monte Baldo e sulle colline moreniche del Garda. Colori tenui, arredamento delicato; silenzio, quiete e poesia in pieno centro storico. Unico problema: vi sarà molto difficile ripartire.

Guest access

The apartment has a terrace for exclusive use (equipped with a typical raw Verona marble bench, table and chairs, chaise and sunshade), ideal for dining dotted with the landscape, dine in the company under the castle lights, sunbathing, Or get lost in the colors of the lake. The sunsets are special. We also have a nice condominium garden with lawn and gazebo, even it can be used by guests. At the house you can access both Via Castello, the most characteristic of the center of Desenzano; But also from the garden at the back, thanks to the gate that opens directly onto the tarmac that descends from the castle to the village. The apartment is on the second floor (if you get us from the castle, where you can park it comfortably), third if you climb from the village. The property, a well-preserved five-century palace, does not have a lift, but the large staircase is well visible in the photos we uploaded in the ad.

L'appartamento ha una terrazza ad uso esclusivo (attrezzata con una tipica panca di marmo grezzo di Verona, tavolo e sedie, srdaio e parasole), ideale per pranzare immersi nel paesaggio, cenare in compagnia sotto le luci del castello, prendere il sole, o perdersi nei colori del lago. I tramonti sono speciali.
Abbiamo anche un bel giardino condominiale con prato e gazebo, anche esso utilizabile dagli ospiti.
Alla casa si accede sia da Via Castello, la più caratteristica del centro di Desenzano; ma anche dal giardino sul retro, grazie al cancello che si apre direttamente sull'acciottolato che scende dal castello al paese.
L'appartamento si trova al secondo piano (se ci accede dal castello, dove è comodissimo parcheggiare), al terzo se si sale dal paese. L'immobile, palazzo del cinquecento tutelato dalle belle arti, non dispone di ascensore, ma l'ampio giro scale è ben visibile nelle fotografie che abbiamo caricato nell'annuncio.

Other things to note

The apartment does not have television or wifi: it is a digital-free space for a choice of life. For over 20 years we have no television and we do not like having it at home; Desenzano wifi has various free hotspots of the civic network accessible from all over the historic center. Entering someone's home also means discovering the footprint each one chooses to give their own spaces. And we wanted our home to offer exactly this, to us first, and then to our guests: sight, time, feel, and a special quiet space.

Entrare a casa di qualcuno significa anche scoprire l'impronta che ciascuno sceglie di dare ai propri spazi. E noi abbiamo voluto che casa nostra offrisse esattamente questo, a noi per primi, e quindi anche ai nostri ospiti: vista, tempo, sentire, e uno spazio di quiete speciale.

Excellent views and location. Using the bathtub and also showering are not comfortable for tall people due to the size and ceiling height. Quick responses and good English spoken.

Myself and my husband visited Elena's apartment in mid September 2017. Elena collected us at the railway station which was a bonus as we were weary from travelling from Ireland. The apartment was well equipped, beautifully decorated, homely and very clean. The location of our apartment was central to the beautiful town of Desenzano and especially to the Piazza Malvessi. We were also centrally located to the train station and the local ferry terminal which made travelling around the area and the lake very accessible. The views from our apartment across Lake Garda were stunning, and as we come from the coolest place in the world (a quote from National Geographic on our area in Ireland, Co Donegal), we know all about stunning views. The veranda was especially beautiful looking out over the rooftops and across at the Churches, and also a panoramic view of the lake. Overall a beautiful place for a holiday including sightseeing and local food. Elena was an excellent host.

Amazing apartment. Beautifully decorated with the most incredible views. Lovely hosts and great communication too. Water and orange juice were left in the fridge and Elena's sister even picked us up from the train station. Only teeny tiny negative was that the shower head isn't attached to the wall in any way so you have to pick it up and can't stand under it to shower but everything else more than makes up for it. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

Response from Elena:
Thank you Bekki! You are higly welcome again. For the shower, yes, our "green bathroom" is a vintage stile bathroom, and we prefer not to drill the mosaic tiles of the wall. Hope it remains a teeny tiny remark... :-) We spend several weeks a year in our beloved home, and we fully enjoy it

Almost don't want to rave about this place incase it's always booked up. The views are breathtaking from every window. Elena has decorated it beautifully. It's a secret oasis of calm and yet just a pretty gate away from the centre of town. Our greeting from Elena's sister Ida and husband (they met us at the train station) was wonderful. They walked us around the town and explained about the wine shop (2.5 euros for a little of delicious pink prosecco!) and bakery etc. Highly recommend this apartment and without a doubt we will return.

Desenzanos best roof top! We highly recommend this flat. You can`t be more central and quiet at the same time to Desenzanos center. Everything is very cosy and nice, contact just perfect. We miss this stunning view in the morning. Bravissimo Elena!

Elena's sister and brother-in-law kindly introduced us to her appartement, which probably has one of the most stunning views on the lago di garda. They were very kind and easy to communicate with - thank you!
