Enjoy playing golf on Lake Garda
This charming accommodation is located 3 km from Peschiera del Garda, a lively resort town on the southern shore of Lake Garda. La Colomba is part of a beautiful historic estate owned by the same family for more than 400 years. The property is surrounded by a large park on one side and a golf course on the other.
The whole property has been totally restored in 2007. It consists of two parts: the villa of the owner with its magnificent main court (see picture gallery, not available for rent) and the old rural courtyard which has been converted into a splendid relais composed of 15 large and beautiful accommodations, one of which offered here. Our La Colomba rental is located just outside the courtyard, and it has its own independant entrance.
La Colomba has a garden just in front of the house equipped with garden furniture. The fully air-conditioned house was personally furnished by the owner who has given the interior ambience the charm of a private home. Some of the bedrooms have a nice view onto the main villa and the golf club, others overlook the inside of the courtyard and the garden.
Guests are welcome to use the long and narrow pool of the estate (5 x 16 m), shared with the guests of the other apartments. The pool is just a short walk from the house.
A path at the sole disposal of the guests of the estate leads to the club house of the golf club. The golf course winds along the sweet hills of the Lake Garda region, interrupted by striking views of the Monte Baldo and the blue lake. The 18-hole championship golf course extends on a surface of 800.000 square metres. At the golf club there is a sporting centre with soccer and five-a-side soccer fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, beach volley, a semi-Olympic sized swimming pool, a children`s swimming pool and last but not least a beautiful wellness center with saunas, Turkish baths, esthetic treatments and massages, indoor swimming pool, gym and more.

Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy, right in the middle of Northern Italy. The lake is like a small sea set between the last spurs of the Alps and the Lombardy plain. It is located about half-way between Brescia and Verona, and between Venice and Milan.
Towns and villages on the lake shore enjoy a milder climate compared to the rest of the region – you’ll see lemon trees and olive groves, palm-fringed lakeside walks with a stunning backdrop of snowcapped mountains.
The lake, with its clear, clean and warm water, sunny beaches, mild climate, and Mediterranean vegetation has been a favorite spot since Roman times and has inspired poets and writers through the ages, such as Catullus, Goethe, Joyce and D'Annunzio.
On Lake Garda you can find facilities for almost any kind of sport and activity: swimming, sailing, windsurfing, golf, rock-climbing, bungee-jumping, trekking, pony trekking, horseback riding, cycling, tennis.
There are many interesting little towns along the coast and up in the hills. This area is rich of natural beauty, history, and culture, with good restaurants and shops.
Peschiera del Garda, only 3 km from the property La Colomba, is the largest town on the Veneto side of the lake, and a transport hub due to the presence of the railway station and of the motorway. For this reason, it may feel less ‘quaint’ than other places like Garda, Malcesine or even Riva del Garda to the north. The town extends between the shore of Lake Garda and the river Mincio, connecting the lake to the Po river further south. The historic centre of Peschiera del Garda is surrounded by the pentagonal walls of the Fortress, one of the four fortresses protecting the Habsburg Empire, connected to the rest of the city by a pedestrian bridge. Peschiera offers many more sights besides the famous Fortress, and visiting is is definitely one of the best things to do in Lake Garda. There are wonderful beaches including Braccobaldo Bau, one of the few Lake Garda beaches to accept dogs, the opportunity to go on boat tours to other Lake Garda towns like Riva, Desenzano, Salò, Sirmione and Lazise. And naturally… Gardaland is just next door!
The Brescian side of the lake begins at Sirmione which has been famous since ancient times for its health-giving spa water. The peninsula on which it stands sticks out into the water about 4 km and is one of the most enchanting places on the lake. In Roman times villas were built there including that of the poet Catullus who wrote of the beauty of the lake in his verses. Sirmione is full of art treasures and history starting with the Scaliger Castle through which one must pass to reach the town centre. The town itself is closed to private traffic but a shuttle takes the visitor to the end of the peninsula, the Grotte di Catullo, starting off from the square outside the spa (Terme di Sirmione) surrounded with a big park and famous throughout Europe.
Desenzano stands in the centre of a wide bay and is sheltered behind a semi-circle of hills. It is one of the best-known tourist towns on the lake and also a famous sailing and bathing centre. The town centres around the lakeside promenade, Piazza Malvezzi (where an antiques market is held on the first Sunday in the month), Porto Vecchio and the porticoed streets lined with bars, boutiques and restaurants.
Valtenesi is the hilly area of vineyards and olive plantations that slopes down to the lake between the bays of Padenghe and Salò. It is made up of seven districts - Padenghe, Moniga, Manerba, San Felice, Puegnago, Polpenazze and Soiano. Ancient villages, castles and villas can be found nestling in the fields and on the lakeside there are small villages where bars, restaurants, and beaches await the tourist. Valtenesi produces some of the best Brescian wines (Groppello and Chiaretto for example) but is also famous for its extra-virgin olive oil. Both the wine and oil can be bought directly from their producers.
Salò is an elegant and popular holiday resort sitting in a marvellous position on the bay of the same name where it is protected from northerly winds. Along the lakeside (arranged in 1906) there are bars, ice-cream shops, restaurants and boutiques, that's why it is the favourite place where to go for a walk.
With its lakeside walk, large villas and grand hotels, Gardone Riviera preserves a charm of times past; it has been a famous destination for international tourism since the end of the 19th century. The most recently constructed part of the town is Gardone di Sotto, the pedestrian section alongside the water where bars, ice-cream shops and boutiques jostle for space, and corso Zanardelli which is the busy axis of town life. In the centre of a large public garden stands Villa Alba whose dock was the Torre di San Marco. In 1900 the Tsar's doctor, Arturo Hruska, created the wonderful botanical garden bearing his name. In just 10.000 m2 there are over 8.000 varieties of plants and flowers from all over the word. The older section of the town, Gardone di Sopra, still has its large villas surrounded by gardens and its 18th century Parish church; it was here that poet Gabriele D'Annunzio built the property called "Vittoriale", which became a national museum on his death. From the Vittoriale there is a pretty walk along via Belvedere to Fasano.
Divided by the river Toscolano, Maderno and Toscolano (now a single unit) are popular tourist centres loved by sportsmen and sailing enthusiasts. Their shoreline is the longest on Garda and behind it lies a 9 hole golf course, Circolo Golf Bogliaco. The places to see at Maderno are the 12th century church of S. Andrea with a work by Paolo Veneziano and the later Parish church which has a painting by Paolo Veronese. Before arriving in Toscolano, a small detour should be take to the Valle delle Cartiere where a paper-making industry flourished after 1300. Toscolano, the original Benacum, was the most important Roman centre and the remains of a villa with mosaic floors can be visited. The 16th century church of Santi Pietro e Paolo has a baroque portal, 16th century wooden sculptures and 17th century pictures by the Venetian painter, Andrea Celesti. Nearby there is the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Benaco con 16th century frescoes.
Vittoriale: Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863-1938) had two aims in mind when he built "Vittoriale" - to have a place to live and to create a monument to his own genius and audacious deeds during World War One. The site is an extraordinary set of buildings surrounded by its own park overlooking the lake. It was designed by Gian Carlo Maroni and encloses the Priory (the pot's house from 1921 to 1938), an open-air theatre (which holds a Summer season of D'Annunzio works each year), the poet's tomb and mausoleum, avenues lined with the urns of his wartime companions and a series of extraordinary objects such as the bow of the cruiser Puglia built into the hill, the speedboat MAS 96 which he used in the "Buccari Escapade" and the aeroplane in which he flew over Vienna, on the 9th of August 1918, to drop subversive leaflets. The Priory shows just what sort of mind D'Annunzio had and the life he lived with its Liberty furniture, thousands of objects, and the works of art, books and paintings with which he liked to surround himself.
