“Very peaceful and stunning views”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We stayed at the Snowboard apartment when we got married in Malcescine June 13. This apartment isnt part of the main block of apartment and it is about 15-20 min walk away from the main block of apartments and the town centre. The snowboard apartment is in a residential complex with access to a pool and tennis courts. It is very peaceful at this apartment and has stunning views of the lake and castle.
It is very clean and modern but they only downside is that it doesnt have an oven but it is very cheap to eat out in Malcescine, so we only cooked once while we where here.

We stayed in a one bed apartment and found it great. Location is very accessible to the town, shops, transport and the cable car. Apartment was spacious and well kitted out. Would recommend it for anyone looking for a nice base to explore the area.

Room Tip: Balcony on the rear of the building has a great view of the mountians

The new apartment was great with modern decor, very clean and comfortable, and great air-con. situated in the centre of Malcesine, it is in the perfect spot, 2 minute walk from shops, lake, castle, cable car, restaurants etc. the owner, carolina monaci and her brother peter (who runs the bar downstairs) are very helpful and friendly, even arranging for transfers for us 2 days before we left (we had made our own way there). you can hire a bike for 10 euros a day, or half day for 5 euros, which is quite flexible, our half day was from midday to bedtime!
The bar downstairs does food, and we loved their take on english breakfast! the prices were reasonable too.
All in all, the apartment was complete value for money, there is also an hours sailing/windsurfing free, but as we were there for a wedding with family in other accommodation, we didnt get time to do that., we would definitely stay there again, and recommend gardesana active apartments and bar to anyone staying in the beautiful town. top class.
PLEASE NOTE: i accidentally clicked that the pool was terrible. There is NO pool, but i couldnt undo it. Swimming in the lake is great, so pool really necessary. i would definitely recommend buying swimming shoes tho, the 'beach' is stony and so is the lake bed :)

Room Tip: the only thing we found was that we believed our room was at the back as we booked a room with terra...

I stayed one of the Active apartments on a short visit to Malcescine. The apartments are on the main road but right beside the the centre of Malcescine. The apartment was very clean, we only really used it to sleep in and have breakfast, We didn't really use the kitchen to cook as it was easier to eat out. All the local restaurants and the telecabine to Monte Baldo are within walking distance and very close by. The owner Carolina was very helpful with lots of reccomendations of where to eat, and visit etc within the area. Great place and great location.

It's was my second trip to malcesine and we occupied a two bed apartment for 4 nights. Other family members stayed in the apartments too. The location to the town could not be better. The apartments are decorated to a very high standard. We had 3 balconies in total and there was plenty of space throughout. The family that own and run the apartments were extremely friendly and approachable. Also kitchen was kitted out very well.....dishwasher, coffee maker, fridge, plates, glasses, cutlery, hop, dining table and 6 chairs. Lots of storage and hanging space between bathroom and bedrooms. Slight negative would be shower pressure and toilet which wasn't flushing correctly. Overall could not have asked for better. A++++

We stayed at the Active Apartments for the 2nd week in May, there were quite a few of us so the lovely owners put us all on the same floor which worked really, really well.

The apartments themselves are really comfortable and clean and well equip, we would have liked an oven, but there are so many amazing places to eat out we didn’t really use the kitchenette. They all come with a lovely balcony and if you are at the front you get a fantastic view of the castle or at the back an amazing view of Mount Baldo. They have a very strict policy of keeping gates and doors locked which made us feel very secure.

The location was fantastic, just a short walk from the town centre and castle (where we got married) and right next to the tourist information and bus station.

The owners Pietro and Carolina were so accommodating and friendly. Pietro gave us a fantastic recommendation for a restaurant our first night and they didn’t mind at all that we arrived on a Saturday night at 9pm!

I would recommend this place unreservedly and hope to come back here again with friends or a family holiday!
