Welcome to lovelakegarda! When you are about to go on holiday, I’m sure that like us you get very excited and you have that feeling of anticipation about discovering new places, new things to see and do, new restaurants to eat at. But, after we first visited Lake Garda 14 years ago we fell in love with it, and ended up returning to year after year. Four years ago we purchased a holiday apartment here, then moved here permanently 2 years ago. Since being here we have met many people who have broken their self-imposed declaration, never to return to the same holiday destination. The place is so enchanting, and there is so much to do and see and eat, that future visits are a necessity, if not to do the things you didn’t get done on the first visit, then to revisit the places you WILL fall in love with. Indeed, in the two years we have been here we have also met many people, who like us, have purchased a property here and hope to one day make a dream move permanent.
Our aim is to provide you with information to help have as good a holiday as you possibly can. I’m sure these pages will intensify your anticipation, as you read about some of our favourite restaurants, our favourite walks or our favourite cantina’s. We will also providing you with information relating to activities that may interest you, such as golf, wakeboarding, canyoning and fishing.
What we would really appreciate is for you to participate in this blog, leave comments on the pages, join in the polls, leave reviews of our restaurants, tell us about your favourite dish. You can also tell us about your favourite restaurants and activities or places of interest you have discovered.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Hi, we are coming to Garda in late October. I am a little worried, as I’ve been told the ferries won’t be running and most restaurants are closed. We are staying near limone. Is it all as closed as I here?
Many thanks Rob
There is a ferry service throughout the year but they do run more frequently during the peak period. There is a ferry that runs only between Limone and Malcesine, it is this ferry that doesn’t run trough the low season but the main ferry service does. Keep checking our Lake Garda Ferry Service page which I will update with the October timetable when it becomes available.
PS. Most restaurants stay open all year, a few do close and some take extra days off, but I don’t think you’ll struggle to find plenty that are open.
