This small apartment with independent entrance is completely water front and sleeps up to 4 in one lofted double bedroom plus another small room with 2 single beds. In the past this small independent house used to be the wood – shed of the main palazzo, the Palazzo sul Garda.
The two properties are separate. They have different entrances and different outdoor areas.
On the ground floor there are also the living room with dining area, a small kitchen and a bathroom. From the window you can admire the beautiful view of Lake Garda and the little beach. It is situated near the characteristic and quiet Porticciolo (little harbour) of Toscolano.
Within 2 minutes walk you can reach the small beach of the Porticciolo. The main wide lake side beaches of Toscolano and Maderno are 5 minutes by car.
This property is located just at few metres from the historical centre of Toscolano Maderno, one of the most popular holidays resort on Lake Garda. With its clear, clean and warm water, sunny beaches, mild climate and Mediterranean vegetation, Lake Garda is like a small sea set between the last spurs of the Alps and the Lombardy plain.
Garda has been a favoured spot since Roman times and has been lauded by poets and writers through the ages, for example, Catullus, Goethe, Joyce and D'Annunzio. It unites its natural beauty with the traces of its history, from Roman remains to Liberty.
From the house it is possible to walk to the village (100 m) where bars, Tabacchi shops, and the delicious Trattoria San Carlo are located. A larger shopping centre with pharmacy, groceries, post office and bank is at less than 600 m. The nearest train station is in Desenzano del Garda (27 Km).
La Legnaia is located in a quiet location since the road leading to the house is used only by other people living in the area or people going to the Porticciolo - a little public harbor very close to the house.
In the past this small independent house used to be the wood – shed of the main palazzo, the Palazzo sul Garda. Please note that the two properties are totally separate. They have different entrances and different outdoor areas.
From the narrow street leading to the small harbour, a wrought – iron gate opens onto a private court yard. Please note that the entrance and the court yard are shared with other three apartments located in the adjacent building.
At the end of the courtyard you can see the lake. In front of the door of the house there is a private area with table and chairs for our guests. Parking lots are available on the street only.
