The villa is located in a friendly hillside estate, almost 400 meters above the lake. Only a few meters from the property, a steep slope offers a breathtaking view down to the lake.
Above Tignale, the 17th-century Sanctuary of Montecastello sits enthroned in a breathtaking location 700 meters above the lake.
Montecastello was built on a rocky outcrop that drops perpendicularly to the lake.
If you would like to spend time by the lake, the beaches of Porto Tignale and Gargnano are only a 10–15-minute drive away. In summer, a shuttle bus runs to Porto Tignale; the bus stop is a few meters from the villa.
Until the 1930s Gargnano was completely cut off as it was surrounded by mountains and could only be reached by boat. Because of its isolation Gargnano has maintained a special and unique charm.
Gargnano is home to two Michelin-star restaurants: Villa Feltrinelli (photo) and Tartuga. There are other restaurants for visitors on a tighter budget situated on the waterfront with lakeside tables.
The old town of Salò with narrow streets, quaint colorful houses and small boutiques stretches behind the longest waterside promenade on Lake Garda.
Part of the charm of both Gargnano and Salò is the absence of mass tourism and as a result they have retained a gentle unsophisticated way of life.
Limone is one of the most popular tourist resorts of the area.
