Everything was fine. Good thing to have a Garage in italy. The appartment is not very big, but has everything you need. (except maybe internet)
The pool is shared with other appartments of the very quiet area. Therefore it was not very busy and still relaxing. Walking to the center of Riva will take about 30minutes, back a little more. (but you will be rewarded with a great view towards the town and the lake). Great stay, thank you!
It is a very good place for a vacation in Riva del Garda. We spent a wonderful week there, the apartment was small, but perfectly fine for two people and one week. It is really cool that you can use the pool and have some relaxing time outside. I can really recommend this place. Francesca and Paolo were really nice as they organized a "last minute late check in" for us. Thanks a lot!!!!
Two of us stayed in Francesca's apartment for a week, and it was perfect for our needs. We spent every day out in the mountains, and the apartment provided a good base for the holiday. We had breakfast each morning on the balcony, and the kitchen was well stocked with equipment to cook dinner too. The apartment was not huge, but perfect for two people on an active holiday. We had a car, and the apartment was easy to find. We drove into town most of the time, but also walked a couple of evenings, which took about 25/30 minutes. We didn't go to the pool, so not sure what that was like. The check in and check out was easy and flexible and all queries I had in advance were answered quickly by Francesca.
I would recommend a visit to Lake Tenno for a picnic and walk around - it didn't take long to get to from the apartment by car and it was very picturesque and a change of scenery from the huge Lake Garda!
The communication was good, the way how to get the key was easy. Parking situation is very good and safe. The small flat has a nice view over Riva del Garda. The equipment was good so we cooked nice meals and enjoyed it on the balkony. Unfortunately the pool was still covered from the winter although weather was warm enough to swimm
We had a wonderful stay at the appartment. Paolo and Francesca were very flexible regarding our check-in time and had additionally tips for our climbing adventures. We particularly appreciated the terrace with a wonderful view over Riva del Garda and the lake. The appartment is well equiped and spacious enough for 2. We can warmly recommend this airbnb appartment.
Only remark: We missed a "real" blanket at the bed. As the weather wasn't perfect during our stay we had low temperature nights and felt quite cold during these nights. Luckily we ended up being creative: Putting as many layers as possible over eachter other. During summer stays of course this situation won't occur. :-)
We did not get to meet Francesca, but the directions to pick up the keys and gain access to the accommodation were great. As mentioned by other people, from the outside the building start to give you reservations, BUT the apartment is great. everything you need for a elf catering get away. Wash machine, dishwasher, iron, plenty of plates and cutlery. The place is very clean and tidy and the view is really nice. The place is very secure and you can easily walk into Riva Del Garda. You also get underground secure access parking, which in Italy is rare.
I would stay here again.
Great apartment which suited all our needs. Located at about ten minutes drive from Riva del Garda center. Surrounded by amazing mountains! Thanks to the hospitality of owners we had a great stay!
We had some beautiful day's in the Apartment. The view was awesome an the Pool was fantastic. The Apartment was clean and you need only your clothes, because everthing was available! I recommend the small diner in deva on the left hand. Deva is above from the apartment, when u drive uphill. We had the best Pasta in our life und we drunk handmade vine. No other restaurant could keep up with this little cordially diner. We enjoid the time recommend the Apartment. P.s a iPhone doking Station is also available ;)
Francesca E Paolo were very accommodating and responsive. We had 3 people in our party and they warned us that the place was a bit small for 3 and they were right but it was perfect for us as we knew we were not going to be spending much time in the apartment. They allowed the 3 of us and said that they would have the place set up for 3 but when we arrived the 3rd bed wasn't set up. Which was fine in the end, we just had to scrounge around to find the sheets for the bed and a cover which were in a bin in the closet and we had to move the Television into the closet to make room. We also had to share one of our bath towels as they had only set out two. The place was small but clean. It was great to have a washing machine to do laundry. The view was spectacular and the little small terrace was okay. There was a dog next door that barked a bit too much for my liking but he shut up from time to time. Again we were not at the apartment during the day much at all just there to sleep. Had we wanted to spend more time there, we would have spent it at the pool! The pool was amazing, there was hardly anyone there. It was a huge pool 25 yards at least so I could do laps and get a workout which was great. Again the view was spectacular. There was a very cool huge rock wall that surrounded one side of the pool. The grove of olive trees were beautiful to walk through and made it a pleasant little walk to the pool. On the instructions for guests they said check out time was at noon but Francesca wrote me because we were a bit late checking out and she mentioned that it was at 11:00 so you might want to clarify that with F & P before your stay because all the literature she sent said 12 noon. It was fantastic to have a parking space but mind you the garage takes about 5 mins to get in and out. The space is so tiny and even if you have a small car because of the angles and pillars in the garage it was really hard to get in and out quickly when other cars were in which they were all the time. But it made a fun challenge for the 3 of us to give it a shot and see who could do the best job with the least amount of turns getting in and out ;-) I gave the place 3 stars because it was tiny and not that great to stay in if you were wanting to spend more time at the place, it's not as open as I would like. Yes there is a big window in the kitchen/living room but it still...
Paolo and Francesca are really great, not only they were perfect guests but they even gave us tips on how to improve our listing on Airbnb, as we are just moving the first steps.
Francesca and Paolo are fantastic guests and kind people! They were very pleasant, interesting, happy and neat company. They also went above and beyond when they were asked for favor of them! Just terrific and really hope they visit again! Mille graze!
