Bardolino stands on the eastern riviera of Lake Garda, 30 kms from Verona, and is one of the best-loved places on the lake, not only for the beauty of the lake there, but also for the beautiful countryside and hills behind. Just a few kilometres from Bardolino is Lake Garda's famous games park and, for those who appreciate the art cities, Verona is a particularly interesting spot for cultural visits. Venice can be reached in an hour by train from the station at Peschiera.
It is world-famous for the production of the excellent red wine "Bardolino", ruby red or rosé, which is produced in the large vineyards on the hills all around the town. The old town centre, dominated by the tall belltower of the church of San Severo, is full of attractive houses and streets where you can admire historic architecture and masterpieces of art and of the local history.
Villa i Broi lies in the village of Cisano 2 kms from Bardolino, in a very panoramic position overlooking the lake. The villa was built in the middle of the 1800s and still maintains the atmosphere of that time in the furnishings as well. It has a 20,000 sq. meter park for the use of guests consisting of an Italian style garden that begins at the main entrance to the villa and ends with a stone balustrade offering stunning views of the lake. To the left is a tree-lined area where it is possible to relax and have barbecues. To the right there is a 6 x 12 m swimming pool with a pergola, changing rooms with shower, and another barbecue area. The large covered terrace with awning adjacent to the villa is furnished with a table and chairs for eating “al fresco”.The wardens, 2 retired people, live in a house next to the villa and have separate entrances and external spaces. Cisano, which has food shops, is just 500 metres away and can be reached on foot. Not to be missed is a trip to the point at San Virgilio and to the beach of the Sirens (spiaggia delle Sirene).
