A Week At Lake Garda

We’ve been away for a week, off to Lake Garda in Italy where we have been before. This time, everything was new to us: We stayed in the small town of Lazise, which was very nice, and we stayed – for the first time ever! – with Clara, our bautiful, five-and-a-half months old daughter. So we did not really see or do much, except playing with Clara, resting at the swimming pool of our appartment, and enjoying the good Italian food of the restaurant in the town center. This was more than enough for us, and it was very, very pleasant. I did not take my camera gear, but we had Petra’s little Ricoh CX-1 – see some impressions of Lazise below.

Here’s a tip for you looking for an affordable appartment in Lazise:

Villa Robinia
Roberto Zamperini
Via Rubinare 24
37017 Lazise (VR)
www.villarobinia.it

They have just four holiday appartments, and we stayed at their “Girasole” appartment, with two nice patios, a large living room, a private garage for the car, and (very important as we found out) a washing machine! It’s a short walk of five to ten minutes to the entrance of the old town, where all the action is. Don’t get fooled by the photos on their web site – the appartment has been terribly photographed! Villa Robinia provided exceptional value for money and honestly recommend it to you as well.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned for future trip reports. :-)
