Best Garda Hotels

Garda Hotels

With sparkling crystal water reflecting rugged green hillsides, rows of white yachts clinking in the warm breeze, and the scent of freshly-baked doughy pizza wafting past, Garda is so captivating that you could while away the hours happily hypnotised at the shore. If you can tear yourself away from day-dreaming, your reward will be in uncovering a chic Mediterranean style resort bustling with cosmopolitan cafés, charming souvenir shops and a sweet-scented fruit and flower laden Friday morning market.

Things to see

Nestled around a curved white pebble shoreline, Garda offers one of the best beach spots on the lake – a perfect chance for donning your wide-brim sunhat and tottering across the shingle to laze on a sunbed the Italian way. Running alongside the lake-front, the town’s tree-lined promenade is heaving with umbrella-shrouded tables belonging to bistros, cafés and ice cream shops, making it a quick hop from the sunbed for tasty Italian treats. Don’t miss trying some handmade smooth-as-you-like almond gelato – a deliciously creamy Italian ice cream. Culturally Garda offers some architectural gems, including the 16th century just-stepped-into-a-fairy-tale house and gardens at Villa Albertini, while Rocca di Garda Castle offers a vast outlook over the lake and town, which is only outdone by the Golf Club Ca degli Ulivi. Languishing along the rolling hillside just a short drive from Garda, it’s worth a trip even if you aren’t an avid golfer.

Hotels in Garda

An array of 2 and 3-star hotels and bed and breakfasts cluster around Garda’s central lake-side area, offering clean, friendly accommodation right in the thick of it, with some providing an on-site swimming pool. If you need a cheap hotel in Garda, this is the best area, but bear in mind that in summer season most Garda hotels sell out in advance. A scattering of luxury 4-star rated hotels are available, though they do charge a premium, especially those with a boutique feel. Larger purpose built resort type hotels are a short walk away from the town centre.

Where to stay

If you fancy the idea of being able to hop from lake to restaurant to hotel bed, the best area would be Garda’s central promenade and the narrow streets leading away from this. At night time the sound of chitter chatter, jazzy music and knives and forks on plates will float along the balmy air and into your hotel room. For those seeking peace and quiet, stroll out of town to the larger more secluded hotels, or head up into the hills near Marciaga for accommodation with unbeatable lake views among lush greenery, fruit trees and floral hotel gardens.

How to get to Garda

Verona Airport, just a short 40 minute drive from Garda, is served by a variety of airlines primarily offering charter routes from London and Manchester, as well as other European cities, while many cheap flights head to further away Bergamo Airport. It’s possible to get a hire car or taxi from either, although many hotels offer their own airport transfers. Buses running from Verona to Garda are time consuming but much less costly. Once in Garda it’s easy to explore the whole lake area, as ferries run regularly between towns, and handy 1 day hop-on hop-off tickets are available.
