Hotel du Lac is tucked away down a one-way side street on the outskirts of Gargnano. We had a larger car and it was slightly nervewracking getting there, but we were easily able to find parking after dropping off the cases.
The hotel feels like a home, but the rooms are of a good size with a large, high bed. The views are gorgeous. Our greeting was from the mother of the owner who was very sweet, although my limited Italian and her slightly limited English meant that we saved some of the formalities till her son arrived a little later. The only downside of the room was the rather small shower.
We ate in the hotel up on the top terrace and had a very pleasant meal in the most romantic setting. The full moon was rising behind the hills on the other side of the lake and the lights were shining from the towns on that side.
The local wine and limoncello are also very good and I would recommend them.
