"Mi casa es tu casa"!
We loved the place! It was exactly what we were after. The apartment itself had everything we needed, was very clean and really well looked after. It was in a nice quiet part of Lake Garda that was beautifully picturesque. Recommended to all, and we would definitely stay again. Thanks for having us.
Me and my fiance had a great time staying at Alessio and Beth's house while we were visiting Lago di Garda. The flat was very nice, clean, decorated with love for the detail and very well located. The beach was 5 minutes walk from the house, there were a supermarket and many restaurants nearby. Alessio and Bethina are very nice and friendly hosts and we felt like home. We warmly recomend everyone, who would like to visit Lago di Garda to rent a flat in this lovely house - it's gonna worth it. :-)
Our almost two week holiday at Nonno Peppo was great. Bettina is the best host you can wish. The appartment is vast and very nice. In short, the value for money is extraordinary! We definitly recommend this appartment.
Unsere Wohnung in der wir wohnen durften war für uns einfach fantastisch...Es war wie in "schöner Wohnen"!
Alessio und Bettina sind sehr freundlich und zuverlässig. Es war perfekt für uns!!
Alessio, Bettina and Ella. Plus little Chicca and the rabbit. Such a beautiful family. Down to earth, relaxed and kind. Their very unique old house in Pieve Vecchia is such an experience, all decorated by this family's personal artistic taste. We spent 10 days there, enjoyed the 5 min walk to the lake, morning coffee at the local bar around the corner which has the most amazing owners, or just sitting in the courtyard - feeling like being in an romantic italian film. Our 1-year old Loved it here as well. It was very children-friendly. We were so sad to leave and will come back as soon as we can. Don't miss out on this apartment or meeting these lovely people! We think it is one of the most genuine places around garda.
Spent an absolutely brilliant week at the start of June in suite "Nonno Peppo" in Alessio and Bettina's sympathetically renovated old stone farmhouse, just a few minutes' walk from Lake Garda.
The self-contained apartment is recently restored, and is a lot more spacious than it appears in the pictures - perfect for two of us for the week. The apartment is at the back of the house, overlooking quiet green hillside, and gets some beautiful light throughout the day. The furnishings are very stylish and welcoming, retaining a good mix of heritage pieces/exposed walls as a reminder of the history of the building, but with all mod cons. The little kitchen area (4 ring gas hob; electric oven; plenty of pans, crockery etc) was great for us to cook a few meals as we'd intended, although we actually ended up eating out for 3 nights as there are a few restaurants in the village (we particularly liked the restaurant a few steps away from the flat near the little supermarket). Everything was very clean and tidy; access was secure and it was handy to be able to park the hire car securely on site.
Good wifi access was a bonus, as was the availability of a washing machine/drying facilities, plus a hairdrier.
Location-wise - could not have asked for better. Pieve Vecchia seems to have some of the loveliest areas of lakeside beach on Lake Garda, and is 5-10 minutes walk from the apartment. The village has a little shop for basic essentials, and a few restaurants and lakeside cafes for a pre-dinner drink watching the sun set over the lake. You can hire kayaks and pedaloes from the nearest beach. It's also well situated for lovely walks into the surrounding countryside straight from the flat - we particularly enjoyed walks to the Rocca di Manerba (an archeological site with good visitor centre and nature trails) and a long circular walk taking in the beautifully frescoed Madonna del Carmine Sanctuary in the next village, San Felice del Benaco.
Alessio, Bettina and their daughter were warm and friendly hosts - very helpful both before our arrival and whilst we were there, but discreet too. You are in their house but the apartment has its own private entrance via an external covered staircase so you don't feel like you're intruding at all. Personally I was also very fond of the family pets (a small dog and a rabbit)! Bettina also kindly gave us a tour of the other apartments, all restored to the same excellent standard but each with their own distinctive character. They have done a good job and are obviously proud of their gorgeous home.
The apartment was everything we expected, and more! If we return to Lake Garda (and I hope that we do!), we would definitely choose to stay here again - just perfect for what we were after, with lovely people. Thank you again!
(P.S. Thank you for the wine!)
We felt very very welcome at Bettina's and Alessio's place. The flat is really cute, with nice old furniture but nevertheless perfectly renovated.
Also the location in walking distance to the lake and with Salo only a few minutes by car away was great for our short trip.
Bettina has been the host you wish for. Greeting us with muffins and being available for questions and with tips for activities anytime.
We would highly recommend Nonno Peppo and wish to come back sometime!

La mia bimba Ella ed io abbiamo deciso di far rivivere il cascinale seicentesco dei miei nonni, creando accoglienti appartamenti ed imbarcarci così in una nuova fantastica avventura insieme.
Crediamo nella salvaguardia dell'ambiente, nel risparmio energetico, utilizziamo esclusivamente detergenti ecologici e da noi gli animali sono i ben accetti.
Abbiamo la passione per la buona cucina e se vorrete vi prepareremo cene o pranzetti, con le ricette dei nostri nonni e della tradizione locale, oltre le proposte che abbiamo pensato per vegetariani e vegani.
Amiamo il Garda e vi aspettiamo per condividerne la rigogliosa natura che lo circonda ricevendovi nella nostra proprietà, a pochi passi dal lago, dove fino al 1969 nonno Peppo produceva vino....nelle Antiche Cantine Roberti.
