The B&B “Antico Borgo” , situated in the Medieval borough of Manerba del Garda (XIV sec.) , has 4 big rooms, terrace and verandah where you can admire the astonishing landscape of Lake Garda, Jacuzzi, breakfast room made in the ancient stone cellar, and a characteristic internal patio with secular olive tree.
The house and being home means a lot to me. I’ve imagined all the restauration in base of my savour and looking for comfort and beautiness.
I’ve realized it for giving (and for have it for myself ) a shelter from outside stress to enjoy a better peace and serenity.
However, our structure is first a place of relax but also a social place.
Our guests , that I love to imagine as our direct friends, share with me over the house,experiences, the landscape, the harmony and lovely evenings all together.
As I am a fine guester , proud of its home and its sorrounding territory, I organized for my interessed guests, various cultural activities, sports and enogastronomical expreriencies , for make other people love this wonderful lake.
All the suites are related to a medieval story, between legend and real life.
Entering the suites this story will help you understand the meaning of its name, their position, the design and the colours of the rooms.
