Overview

Design hotel MaisonMe on Lake Garda’s east coast merges modern Italian style with the warmth and charm so that you feel at home from the moment you walk in.

 

Right on the waterfront and just steps from a private beach, it’s a wonderful hotel for couples who want to leave the car behind or who fancy a short break by the lake. It’s only 90 minutes by bus from Verona Airport, and just 30 minutes by bus from Pescheria station on the main Venice-Milan trainline. And if you do want to drive your own four wheels, there’s on-site parking, too.

 

Once at the hotel, you can rent a bicycle from reception - they have both classic and electric bicycles - or book MaisonMe’s Tesla service, although much of what you’ll want to see is within easy walking distance.

 

Back at the hotel, you can relax and take in the lake views, or grab a towel and walk the few steps to the hotel’s private beach, just 50 metres away.

Rooms

This boutique hotel’s 17 sleek rooms all have balconies or terraces, many with views of the lake so you can wake up, make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and watch the lake turn pink as the sunrises.

 

Back in your room, pad across the herringbone-patterned wooden floors to the black-and-white marble bathrooms. You’ll find a cosy robe and heating will keep you warm in winter, and air-conditioning cools you down in summer. All rooms have beach towels, which you can take to the nearby private beach for a dip in the lake.

Dining

Whether you’re an early riser or prefer to sleep in, breakfast will be ready when you are. Vegan, gluten-free and most other dietary preferences can be catered for.

 

A delicious buffet of fresh pastries, bread and delicacies will be laid out, and someone will be on hand to whip up a delicious start to your day, whether that’s just after sunrise or nearly lunchtime. Lounge around the shared table downstairs or relax in bed as someone brings it to your room.

 

For lunch and dinner, you’ll find the popular La Preonda beach-front restaurant just a few doors away, serving regional cuisine, or plenty of options in the town five minutes away.

 

And don’t miss the chance to visit one of the renowned Bardolino DOC vineyards near the hotel. Stop in one for a tasting and you’ll find they often serve excellent aperitivo - small plates of local cheeses, hams and bruschetta.

Location

Bardolino is considered by many to be one of the pearls of Lake Garda and deserves to be visited not only for the natural beauty of the lake and for the wide beaches, but also for the hinterland characterized by a lush countryside and the morainic hills producing the famous Bardolino red wine doc.

 

The town is known for the beauty of its historic center characterised by wide streets, historic buildings, typical restaurants, shops of various kinds, and a long lakeside promenade.

 

Must-sees are the Romanesque Church of San Severo housing interesting frescoes inspired by the Apocalypse, the Pieve di Santa Maria a Cisano, and the famous Oil Museum, the first of its kind in Italy, offering an interesting educational path to discover the tradition of the olive tree and the production of olive oil.

 

Inland, it is also possible to visit the Wine Museum set up in the Zeni Brothers' cellar. It offers a total immersion in the history of the Garda wine through the visit of well-kept and attractive exhibition rooms.

 

The leisure offer is very wide and articulated, certainly able to satisfy even the most demanding customers. Bardolino, in addition to having an admirable historical and artistic heritage, offers sports enthusiasts numerous facilities for practicing sporting activities such as rowing, sailing and windsurfing.

 

Numerous events take place in Bardolino with the Bardolino wine as the absolute protagonist. Among the main one, we point out the Wine Festival in May, the Grape and Bardolino Wine Festival in October, the Novello Wine Festival in November, the famous Grape Care, during the harvest period.

    Expertoitaly (and Antonio) first came to our attention in 2014 when we were... planning a celebratory trip to Italy for 2015. Although we approached a number of household names about our plans and itinerary by e-mail Antonio immediately stood out. He phoned back almost straight away to get to know something about us and what we liked to do. On the back of that discussion he quickly put together a trip and budget. Given his obvious knowledge of the country and his quick grasp of what we were looking for together with the attention to detail it was a 'no brainer' to put our trust in this company. As a consequence we duly enjoyed a 3 week multi-stop trip in July 2015 tailored to suit us perfectly! On return we almost immediately booked to return in October for a short break to 2 of the locations in Tuscany we particularly enjoyed - Lucca and Montepulciano both of which are delightful. We fell in love with Italy and have returned several times since then all courtesy of Antonio: 2016 - A short break to attend the Opera in Verona. 2017 - 2 weeks in Sicily 2018 - the same - we love Sicily and would urge anyone to go. (where we finally got to meet Antonio in Ragusa which was great) We were due to return to Italy this year for a 3 week road trip - albeit with private transfers rather than actual driving - from Verona to just south of Naples - all immaculately put together by Antonio of course. Alas Covid-19 had different ideas. We can only say that Expertoitaly have dealt with this professionally and as speedily as circumstances allowed and have refunded all the monies. We have no reservations about using them again in the future. In fact Antonio is already on standby to reprise the 'lost' trip as soon as this madness ends and unhindered travel becomes possible again - just extended an improved.

    Just returned from a fab trip to Italy - all organised by Antonio. His time... and effort to get what was just right for us was amazing.. he had a lot to put up with! We have used Expertoitaly before and will do again. We visited Ischia and Naples. Both very different and wonderful. Ischia is perfect for a good rest (visits to the Giardini La Mortella and the Ravino Gardens are a must). The Gardens & Villas Resort is a beautiful setting, very private, calm with amazing staff. Also the little town of Lacco Ameno has some really nice restaurants. Naples was very HOT! but we still managed to spend 7 hours walking about just soaking up the atmosphere and visiting some of the fantastic historic sights. Visit to the underground roman town is well worth it - it is mind boggling to think it was built thousands of years ago.read more

    This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for... me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

    Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely... responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

    July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day... holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

    Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two... beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more

    We have just made an amazing journey by train, taxi, boat and bus through... France, a night in Paris, then a night on a mountain in Switzerland, train across the alps on the Bernina Express, 5 days on Lake Como and 6 days on Lake Maggiore. We stayed in the most glorious quality hotels. We made visits to local towns and attractions using buses and boats. Every connection on the journey was planned and executed wonderfully. This is 5 star planning, 5 star service, 5 star experience all personally organised by Antonio at ExpertoItaly. We must never forget the James Bond moment of being whisked across Como by Luca in his luxury Taxiboat from Varenna to the Hotel Filario in Lezzeno with Pavarotti as our musical accompaniment then met on the jetty by a lovely suited receptionist. A dream. Thanks Antonio. See views from our rooms Como then Maggiore.read more
