We first visited Lake Garda in 1998, on the recommendation of a friend. We stayed in a campsite close to the enchanting town of Salo, and we loved it so much that we returned every year, sometimes twice, for the next ten years. During our visits we would explore the idyllic lakeside villages, dreaming that one day we would own our own property in the place that was becoming like a second home to us. In 2008, with the help of Garda Homes, a company that specializes in helping people to buy a property in Lake Garda, we purchased our dream holiday property. We found a pretty little apartment in a 16th century building, high in the mountains behind Salo, with a tranquil setting and stunning views across the lake,  which became increasingly difficult to leave after our holidays, until in 2010 we took the decision to move there permanently.

Needless to say we know the area very well, especially West Garda and the bay of Salo. Although much of the initial information provided on this website will relate to this area, in time, hopefully with your input, we hope to expand to cover the whole of the region.

With its mesmerizing landscape, its wonderful climate and enchanting atmosphere, Lake Garda is the perfect location to stage the most important day in your life, your wedding. We arranged our or wedding here in 2005 and we are arranging a wedding here this year and we hope to have a gardaweddings website up and running in the very near future, specifically for wedding planning services. In the meantime, if you are considering getting married in Lake Garda and you would like some information or assistance, drop us a line at lovelakegarda2012@gmail.com.

Not many people are aware of the many golf courses that are scattered around the lake, some hidden gems that make playing golf in Lake Garda a truly amazing experience. Whether you are a golf fanatic or a beginner and are interested in experiencing Lake Garda golf, we would love to help organise your trip. For information and assistance contact us at lovelakegarda2012@gmail.com.  .
