Isola del Garda, discover it with us
The island, owned by the Borghese Cavazza family, is located not far from San Felice del Benaco, on the western shore of Lake Garda. It is dominated by the imposing neo-Gothic Venetian style villa, at the foot of which there are terraces and Italian and English gardens. All around the vegetation is lush and intact, rich in local and exotic plants, a perfect destination for the whole family. For some years, guided tours have been organized on the Isola del Garda, departing from various coastal towns, which can be reached by boat or speedboat, an enjoyable experience in close contact with nature.
When and how to reach the Isola del Garda
From April to October every Thursday at 1.45 pm there is a departure from Piazza Calderini (the port square) of Torri del Benaco, reachable with a walk of only 5 minutes from the Residence Ca 'del Lago.

Landed on the Island, you will be greeted by a welcome drink with olive oil tasting, after which you will be accompanied on a fascinating journey through the rich vegetation of the Park, in the well-kept gardens and inside the house.
The return is scheduled for late afternoon, perfect timing, we will be waiting for you at the Panoramic Bar of Residence Ca 'del Lago with a cool aperitif! So you can relax and rethink the day spent with an incredible view of Lake Garda at sunset.
