Manerba del Garda
Located on the southwestern shore of Lake Garda, between the larger towns of Salò and Desenzano lies Manerba del Garda which is easily reached from both Verona and Brescia. The small town centre is located a five minute drive from the hotel, though there are more restaurants and bars located along the lake shore when you leave your boat on your sailing holiday, near the hotel than there are in the town itself, that said we do recommend that you hire a car during your stay as there is a lot to see and do in the area.
The area around Manerba offers opportunities for cycling; mountain biking and hiking on the hillside surrounding the lake; boating, canoeing and paddleboarding on the lake, as well as organized excursions to the Isola dei Conigli that can be seen from the beach near the hotel, and the larger Isola del Garda. There are also a number of golf courses nearby. If you hire a car you can also visit nearby Sirmione, Verona and Brescia, as well as the historic ‘Vittoriale degli Italiani’ in Gardone, once the home of Italian writer Gabriele D’Annunzio. It is also possible to visit local vineyards and lemon groves.
There are many shows and events organized during the summer, including open air concerts, street markets and festivals, as well as the prestigious Prim’ Olio event, a festival dedicated to the local extra virgin olive oil.
