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.
