Villa Girasole, Sleeps 8
Brenzone, Verona, Italy 37010
Why we love it...
• Tranquility and peace
• The best views over Lake Garda
• Amazing eco-style
• Beautiful countryside
Villa Girasole is a newly built, wonderful luxury villa nestled in the hills above Lake Garda. Thanks to its exclusive location, there are no neighbours in site and the views of Lake Garda are some of the very best around. It's set in a wonderfully maintained private estate, surrounded by ancient olive trees and beautiful gardens. Peace and tranquility are guaranteed here and there are few better places to enjoy a morning coffee or evening aperitivo.
The villa is close to San Zeno in Montagna, high above the lake and the wonderful village of Castelletto di Brenzone is just a 15 minute walk from the villa (good shoes recommended!). The village offers a selection of excellent restaurants and you’ll be sure to find some excellent wine that's produced just down the road!
This beautiful villa sleeps 8 guests over 4 bedroom suites, each uniquely furnished and with wonderful lake views. The lower floor has two double bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms with shower and bath tub. One of these rooms can be converted to a twin room and there is another double and twin room on the upper floor and which share a family bathroom. The villa also has a guest bathroom with toilet and sink.
Built facing the lake, the heart of Villa Girasole is the wonderful living space complete with kitchen and dining area. This bright space is a fantastic area, perfect to relax after a day exploring. Visit in the autumn and cozy up around the crackling open fire - maybe with a glass of local red?
The modern country-style kitchen has a beautiful centre-island and comes fully equipped with everything you need to whip up some local dishes, including oven and dishwasher.
The dining table inside is handmade from nut wood and there’s an outside dining area too, perfect for a spot of al-fresco dining! There’s a barbecue too, great for some summer grilling.
The villa gardens take full advantage of the beautiful scenery and wonderful views of Lake Garda. Spanning several acres, the garden is filled with exotic plants such as banana and grapefruit trees and there are explosions of colour dotted everywhere. Wander amongst the ancient olive trees that still produce a wonderful extra virgin olive oil - visit in November and you can even take part in the olive harvest that produces this fantastic olive oil…certainly worth a taste!
The garden is also home to a fantastic natural swimming pool. Sun loungers dotted around make this an ideal spot to spend a day under the sun. And if you simply fancy relaxing after a day exploring, head to the gorgeous Finnish sauna! One of our favourite features has to be the heated outdoor hot tub - top tip! Grab a glass of prosecco and take a dip while watching the sun go down over the lake.
The villa is climate controlled with a natural ventilation system throughout - keeping the villa warm in autumn and cool in the summer. There’s free WIFI too.
The villa owners live around 200 metres from Villa Girasole and are always available for any information or requests.
Please note: the garden has many unfenced walls and drops and may not be suitable for small children. Children should always be supervised in the garden area.
Do I need a Car?
Yes, a car is required here. The location is hillside and is around 5km by car from the village of Castelletto di Brenzone.
The access road to the villa is a steep gravel road (around 600 metres). Please make sure you are confident driving and we highly recommend a sturdy vehicle. There is parking just outside the villa for up to 4 cars.
Located on the east coast of Lake Garda, Villa Girasole is directly above Castelletto di Brenzone, a charming village directly on the shores of Lake Garda. There’s a nice selection of restaurants here as well as small supermarket and the lake ferries stop here twice daily.
There is an ancient roman path that passes the villa and heads straight down to Castelletto as well as up to the mountain village of Prada. It’s a steep walk over a stone path and takes around 15 minutes. Give yourself a little longer coming back up!
This area is a wonderful base for exploring Lake Garda and the beautiful towns of Malcesine and Torri del Benaco are just 15 minutes away by car.
Villa Girasole is just around an hour drive from Verona airport and an hour and a half from Milan Bergamo airport.

A perfect escape
This is an idyllic house with incredible views of the lake and mountains. Hildegard and Norbert are attentive and generous hosts. We enjoyed the peaceful gardens and the natural produce of fruit and vegetables, honey and olive oil. The house is immaculate and well equipped. It couldn’t have been better. The drive is very steep but our Ford S-Max rental car made it up and down daily. A wonderful and relaxing holiday.
IT WAS SO INCREDIBLY STUNNING
Staying here was better than I could have ever imagined. Every single detail had been thought through to perfection. We loved it so much that we are planning our next stay now!
ONE OF A KIND
We had THE best time here!!! The villa is incredibly cosy and those views over the lake are one of a kind! We couldn't have asked for better hosts either! They were so friendly and gave us the warmest of welcomes. Not one thing to criticise - will definitely come back next year!
Our staff say...
Absolutely stunning property with views to die for! The seclusion makes for a wonderful private spot yet still really close to the lake and easy to access the nearby towns of Malcesine & Torri! We love it!
