Villa Elite is a family-owned hotel nestled in the hills above Limone Sul Garda with a terrific view of the lake and surrounding area. The hotel, staff and location combine in a fashion that exudes charm and peacefulness. Our stay the end of September for five nights was perfect and so relaxing. But of course, you want the details to help you decide whether or not to book here!
We stayed in a junior suite at the annex, a short walk from the main hotel. The annex is gorgeous and recommended. We had a private terrace on the side of the annex with great lake views and a table and chairs. The suites are clean, minimally furnished and well-maintained. There is a safe in the closet in the room. My only suggestions for improvement would be for the hotel to arrange for either self-service laundry or a laundry service. We discovered that washing out a couple things at night and then placing them on a hanger in the closet with the mini-fridge worked great - the fridge generated sufficient heat to create a drying cupboard! Also, the complimentary soap bar was tiny - the hotel should consider replenishing the soap during a multi-night stay.
Many people write about the walk to/from town. Obviously downhill is not an issue. My wife and I are reasonably fit Americans (59 and 60) and we made the walk from the bottom of the hill in town (by the buses and the "boardwalk" into the heart of Limone) to the hotel in 11 minutes. Great exercise! If you plan on coming to Italy, for goodness sakes get in some walking beforehand. There are taxis available in town if walking is not an option.
We ate one night at the hotel and our group arranged outdoor dining on the terrace across from the main hotel - under the olive trees - by candlelight. The food and wine were excellent. The breakfast that was included contained sufficient variety (fruit, muesli, croissants, yogurt, meats, cheeses, etc.) and good coffee. We also took advantage of the bar in the main hotel - make sure you sample an Aperol Spritz while in Italy. (Much better than Campari!). It's the "in" thing at the moment.
The family/staff was friendly and helpful. Several do speak excellent English. The mother laughed at me when I produced a photo on my phone of what I had used from the mini-bar but it proved easier than my basic Italian.
I would definitely return to this hotel.
