On the shores of Lake Garda—Italy’s largest and most visited lake—rests the town of Manerba del Garda. It’s the largest of the lakeside villages, though it’s more of an off-the-beaten-path choice for those seeking a more tranquil visit.
Our Manerba del Garda vacation rentals are about 80 miles east of Milan and just over 100 miles west of Venice. On the map of Italy, the city is nestled in the north just below a band of green symbolizing beautiful mountain ranges and national parks. Our Manerba del Garda apartment rentals are in the perfect place to balance remote tranquility with easy access to city life surrounding them.
First and foremost: the lake. You’ll find it difficult to look away from the beautiful blue waters, at times white-capped by the wind, and surrounded by mammoth mountains and villages boasting historic architecture. There are plenty of ways for you to savor the view, from boat rides to strolling along the promenade, where you’ll also find shops, cafés, and gelaterias.
Be sure to head along Porto Vecchio in the historic center, where you’ll find more cute establishments nestled along the canals. There are also multiple beaches, popular for swimming in the summertime or for leisurely strolls in the chillier months.
If you’d like to take a day trip, there are always the bustling scenes of Venice and Milan. However, to experience another lakeside town, the popular Sirmione is about 14 miles away from our Manerba del Garda vacation rentals. Here you’ll be able to walk the grounds of the incredible Scaligero Castle, one of Italy’s best-preserved fortresses with walls jutting directly into the lake. While you’re at it, visit the Archaeological Site of Grotte di Catullo, an ancient Roman villa that’s also been very well-preserved.
Thermal spas, fashionable clothing boutiques, and fine dining are just a sampling of what else awaits in Manerba del Garda. Browse our homes to experience your perfect Italian lakeside getaway.
