We were very impressed with the villa which exceeded all our expectations. Our 'rep' was very helpful and welcoming. The planned enhancement of a pool will perfect it. We found the wonderful 'Wine Shop' down the road with owner Roberto - a lovely hang out, meeting locals and sampling wine at VERY good prices. There are several nearby beaches (all pebbly, so water shoes recommended), some requiring a drive, but a few to walk to. Also a variety of restaurants all walk-able, everywhere we ate we all enjoyed. Recommend car/foot ferry from 'Maderno' across lake to 'Torri Del Benaco' for a wander. We went to 1 of 3 water-parks, 'Caverna', which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. We only had eight days, but need to return to explore more! NB - Insect spray essential.
