Ogni soggiorno da Castelletto Estate è una storia da raccontare…

Staying here was better than I could have ever imagined.

Every single detail had been thought through to perfection. We loved it so much that we are planning our next stay now!!

This is an all around 5-star experience!

The house is absolutely luxurious with stunning views from every angle of the home. The house was extremely comfortable, the lay-out of the home and outdoor areas allowed for plenty of communal activities, but also space for quiet relaxation, and the amenities were of the same quality that you'd have in your own home.

What I loved most about the home was the clean and solid construction and just the simplicity yet elegance of the decor. We stayed with 3 adults and 3 children (8, 6 and 4 years old). The lay-out was perfect for our group. The rooms were simple and spacious. We had one room for the parents, the other room was for the children and the apartment for the nanny. With a large kitchen stocked with the necessary amenities, we were able to cook wonderful meals that we enjoyed in several different dining areas around the property (front porch, back porch, garden, dining room).

The grounds were just beautiful. The house had a man-made pond that the children loved swimming in and exploring. There was a sauna, a hot tub, a reading room and outside lounging areas to enjoy the views. The yard was the perfect combination of natural and landscaped gardens. There were vegetable and herb gardens that allowed us to make salads and add fresh herbs to all our meals that made them that much more enjoyable.

And finally, our hosts were so gracious and made us feel so welcome. We had a wonderful welcome package awaiting our arrival. Hildegard brought us fresh homemade bread twice during our stay and a wonderful strudel. There were fresh flower arrangements around the house every morning. The children were always excited to spy on Hildegard, Norbert and Maibrit in the yard in the morning or at their house on our way in and out of the property. The surrounding area was also delightful.

We had a lot of fun exploring the nearby towns. The closest town is Castelleto di Brenzone. An easy 10 minute drive from the house and pretty difficult 20-25 minute hike down (to get to town)/up (to get home) the mountain. The two older children made the hike once, but the 4 year old was basically carried back up the mountain. While they were proud of getting to the town and back once, none of the children wanted to do it again. Our favorite restaurant was ristorante da umberto where we enjoyed several lunches and a couple of dinners. Luca the owner was such a treat! We can't wait to visit again!

Believe the photos you see -- Villa Castelletto looks every bit like them, and I'd argue it's much better in person. 
Here are some facts: 
* There are no neighbors and it is absolutely silent -- just sitting around one feels relaxed 

* Unobstructed views of the mountains that plunge into Lake Garda 

* High-end finishes, quality linens/towels, and a kitchen stocked with everything you'd need 

* Warmest hospitality from the Hofers 

Things to know (these are not complaints by any means, but they are things you'd want to know :)): 
* The gravel driveway is steep and has some hairpin turns. When they mention you would want a SUV or AWD vehicle, they're being honest. We had an AWD BMW 4-series and did just fine, but we went slowly to avoid scraping the underside. After a few drives, it becomes super easy, but just be aware of this especially if your car has low ground clearance. 
And, you need to have a car here -- this is not for people who rely on public transportation. 

* It's a good 10 minute drive to get to San Zeno (probably the biggest, closest town), and maybe 15 minutes to Brenzone. We found ourselves wanting to eat a large lunch at restaurants during the day, and with the coziness of the villa, it was great to cook in the huge kitchen at night so everybody could relax with wine and not worry about driving the windy roads home. 

* The Hofers maintain a great herb garden -- thyme, rosemary, oregano, and others -- are right outside the door. 

* There are essentially two apartments in the villa -- the top floor apartment has a bedroom, bathroom, and small kitchenette. The lower apartment is the main one that has the huge kitchen, 2 en-suite bedrooms, separate bathroom, and living areas. There are separate entrances for each. 

* Wifi speed is good, but not ultra-fast. There is a nice speaker box that connects via Bluetooth or Aux jack to play music. The peaceful and idyllic location made this a wonderful getaway spot -- I would stay here again without any reservations and would recommend it to anybody.

We had THE best time here!!! The villa is incredibly cosy and those views over the lake are one of a kind!

We couldn't have asked for better hosts either! They were so friendly and gave us the warmest of welcomes. Not one thing to criticise - will definitely come back next year!

Villa Castelletto is a superb choice for a Lake Garda vacation. It enjoys stunning views from its hillside location looking down over Castelletto to Lake Garda, and is set in superb landscaped grounds.

Private, and reached by its own secluded track, there are several peaceful spots to relax in the extensive grounds overlooking the lake, olive groves or by the natural pool, sauna or hot tub The villa itself is very well-appointed with high quality fixtures and fittings to make your stay enjoyable and stress free – it has absolutely everything you need. The Hofer family provided a warm and friendly welcome, were superb in answering any initial booking enquiries, and are always on hand (discreetly) if you have any issues or want some help with recommendations with local attractions and restaurants. Ideally placed to explore the towns and villages and enjoy the activities around Lake Garda, the opera in Verona, and also venture further afield – Venice was easily drivable on a day trip. Highly recommended.
