About this listing
Traditional Italian house, with thick stone walls that keeps it cool in the summer. Large (1000m2), fenced in, private garden to play in. The house is about 50m2 and consists of a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. 4 beds + twin sofabed. Located on top of hill/mountain ridge so air doesn't get stagnant (it has a fresh breeze). Located in Castion, only 5 min. walk to village center. Plenty of hiking trails close by.
This house is special for its location (country side, yet very close to village and the lake, small and big cities and the mountains), its garden (large, safe for children good view) and its atmosphere (peaceful and close to the nature)
From the house one sees only meadows, mountains and the valley that leads to Garda (one can see a glimpse of the lake between the hills). No neighbors have insight into the garden/house. Very peaceful atmosphere, yet close to the village (Castion) with bars, restaurants and shops. Close to many activities (golf, riding, lake, amusement parks, sailing, ...), events (village festivals, ...), historic sites. The house is located 3km from Garda and Torri del Benaco, at the foot of beautiful Monte Baldo, 5km from Valpolicella (especially known for its wines Amarone and Ripasso), 25 km from Verona and 110km from Venezia.
