The Lake Garda Hotels Guide, offer Trekking possibilities and visits, in the Island of Garda. Muche information and Service directly in our Website. The Island is situated on the Brescian side of Lake Garda, a short distance from San Felice del Benaco and it has been the expression of mysticism for centuries (St.Francis of Assisi founded a small community). Today it owes its fascination to the extraordinary Venetian neo-Gothic style villa, designed by the architect Luigi Rovelli at the beginning of the 20th century; an imposing harmonious building, rich in surprising architectonic details. It boasts a beautiful 18th century painting by Carlo Carloni. Below, the terraces and Italian gardens slope down to the lake. All around the vegetation is luxuriant and intact, rich in local, exotic plants, rare essences and unique flowers. A harmonious wood of pines and cypresses, acacias and lemon trees, magnolias and agaves. The Island of Garda is magic and mystery. The birdsong seems to be the joyous voice of the soul of those who, over the centuries, have respected, looked after and loved it.

How a journalist from Monaco of Bavaria has become a jam producer on Lake Garda

This was Ms Karin Steinbacher’s choice to open her own laboratory of food specialties in Gardone Riviera, a few steps from Piazza del Vittoriale, under the porch near the Piazza dei Caduti. Tourists and curious alike are attracted by the small tables outside the shop laden with baskets of goodies.

Lake Garda has always been in Karin’s heart and her love has led to the choice of Gardone as the seat of her business. Here there is also an adequate space for food processing. The small store has a back room used as a laboratory for making cedar, lemon, tangerine and bitter orange marmelades. Karin also prepares vegetables in oil and vinegar, dried tomatoes, red pesto, lemon and walnut liquor. The produce used are all from Garda.

The marketing began with the Christmas markets in Germany and with the chance meeting with representatives of Manufactum, a German company who owns a successful chain of specialty stores in Germany. Karin’s products met their taste and the first orders started to come.
Many of the best hotels in the area offer their customers these specialities on the breakfast buffet.
