From the moment we arrived we felt instantly relaxed. We were greeted by Viviana and Nico with a fresh fruit cocktail and some pastries to welcome us to Hotel Florence. The room was very clean and had a large balcony with amazing views over Lake Garda. There is also a shared balcony that you sit and relax on all day or have your evening meal served to you on. The lake is only a short walk away - we visited Baia Bianca which is a little further along the beach in order to get sun loungers but once Hotel Florence opens their pool, there will be no need to leave! It looks like it will be amazing! As we didn't have our own transport (there is electric bikes you can borrow), we dined in most nights and we would recommend you experience Nico's dining flair! As a true chef, he buys all the ingredients fresh and in season and won't cook the same meal twice - that must take some imagination! You'll get a 4 course meal which has been thought of to incorporate taste and health! What sets asides this b&b against others is the people.... Viviana and Nico will go above your expectations to make sure you have an amazing stay with them. People over-use the phrase 'giving 110%'but this couple really do give it. The breakfast changes every day - fruit, muffins, crossaints - all freshly baked / prepared. They both speak fluent English so we ended up having some great chats over a glass of wine after dinner. We really felt like old friends by the time we left and are already looking to return in September for a long weekend.
There are lots of things to do locally - I would recommend a day on the ferries to visit other parts of the lake and a day trip to Salo is a must!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- . Structure: History and Features The building, which houses the hotel was built in 1997 and includes a dozen apartments. The Hotel Florence is proud of the two beautiful terraces that allow our guests to enjoy the enchanting scenery of the lake. Inside are two accessible rooms on the ground floor, called the Family Room antechamber that combines making them ideal for families who want to share the same holiday but not the same room, and eight bedrooms upstairs. Each of our rooms is treated in detail: the color to accessories, from the most mundane to the most subtle refinements. Prominent are the two deluxe rooms with balcony and lake view. Where are we Our facility is located in the district of San Sivino, on the border between Moniga and Manerba del Garda. A few steps from Lake Garda, we enjoy a position that allows our guests to relax and enjoy the beauty that our area offers. Places to see Our property is surrounded by places of interest. No doubt the closest, and least known, is the Church of San Sivino. Isolated on the promontory of San Sivino, this church is located overlooking Lake Garda, although it remains very little, remains a place full of charm and a mystery. The church of San Sivino has been rediscovered by Armando Bellelli Bertagna and Marco, two fans who visiting documentandola and demonstrate the interest that could have many other researchers. The church has a nave with bays that support round arches and is the oldest of Manerba. The fact that it is in ruins and abandoned to itself hurts not only to membership of the historic area, but also to the side of this enigmatic place can evoke. Our property boasts proximity to the Natural Park and Archaeological Rocca and Sasso. Rocca di Manerba stands on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Lake Garda on its lead, thanks to restoration work and archaeological and environmental enhancement, you can see the remains of the medieval castle and other ancient structures accessible via a steep asphalted road, closed to traffic on the last stretch after parking. The ruins, in the hinterland decline towards a meadow that offers hospitality and leisure visitors. Also from the fortress you also get to a beautiful beach. On the ruins of which look over the lake, a steep and difficult path in part, allows you to get to the Park of the Rock of Manerba. Also accessible from the bottom, a big beautiful plateau covered with forests and meadows of 90 hectares which include the fortress itself and the entire coastline of its own park. The Visitor Center of the Archaeological Park of the Rock of Manerba del Garda is home to its current venue (near the parking lot under the Rock) also the Archaeological Museum of Valtenesi. On the ground floor it follows the archaeological trail, with bilingual panels (in Italian and English) through a variety of exhibits on display in shop windows, showing the settlements of the multilayered site of Rocca and Sasso, that of Pieve di S. Maria and to the lake, with the remains of a settlement of the Bronze Age lake-dwelling. A place to see is also the island of San Biagio, or rabbits. A few meters from Punta Belvedere, near Manerba Porto Torchio emerges the small island of San Biagio, commonly known as "Island of rabbits", reachable on foot in the lean periods of the lake or with a taxi boat for a small fee. The island of San Biagio has since 2007 owned by the Camping San Biagio, in fact, access is free of charge. A little further off is the Rock from the altar, of which ancient memories tell us that, on it once a year during mass at which watched from aboard their boats, fishermen here from all over the lake. The Rock of the Altar, is surely one of the most popular dive sites of the Garda. The wall comes down to a depth of 150 meters, and is famous for two large balconies covered with yellow sponges and a cave providing refuge to large specimens of fish perch.
