Isola del Garda

Reviewed By SarkLover - North Wales

We had booked this trip before leaving the UK, but on our chosen morning, there was torrential rain, with thunder and lightening. We emailed to cancel, and rebooked for two days later.
The weather wasn't particularly good then, but at least it was dry. It didn't detract from our visit however, and in fact added to the atmosphere during our walk through the wooded areas of the island.
The island is a 15 minute boat ride from Portese harbour, and on arrival we were divided into two groups, one English speaking, and one German speaking for the guided tour. Our guide was very good, and gave us lots of interesting information as we went round the island. The tour last about an hour and a half, and culminates with the viewing of a couple of rooms in the villa, and a drink and nibbles on the Terrace. There is also the opportunity of sampling olive oil, made on the Mainland on one of the family's enterprises.
It's a very pleasant way to spend a morning whilst staying in the Lake Garda area!

This old church has the most amazing frescoes & really should be much better known. The only problem is that there is no guidebook in English

Valtenesi del Garda

Reviewed By PPCI-BG - Italy

La Valtenesi comprende la zona tra la sponda bresciana del Garda e le retrostanti colline moreniche verso la Valsabbia. La zona è piacevole e verdeggiante, il paesaggio suggestivo e il clima è mite ed è stata sempre apprezzata come testimoniano i resti romani quali la villa di Desenzano e le Grotte di Catullo. Nel medioevo è passata di mano dagli Scaligeri ai Visconti alla Serenissima ed è ricca di castelli che ne segnano i borghi, come di chiese che vanno dal romanico al gotico al rinascimentale. Nella Valtenesi troviamo una vegetazione che comprende agrumi, cipressi e palme. Il clima mite del lago consente la coltura di vigneti e la coltivazione di oliveti che producono un buon olio. Ci passo spesso non solo per vacanza ed è sempre un bel vedere.

Chiesa Parrocchiale dei Santi Felice

Reviewed By Peter C - Wakefield, United Kingdom

The exterior looks like concrete, or is it just cement rendered? Difficult to believe it was built like that hundreds of years ago. Once inside the church it is like a Cathedral, with marble and gold on a grand scale. The bell tower is located a short distance away at the entrance to the graveyard.

Fred, il cane Re del porto

Reviewed By claudiobj - Brescia

Fred è l'infaticabile cane che chiunque visitasse il porto di San Felice finirà per incontrare.
Infaticabile perché sempre e comunque lo troverete al cancello pronto a giocare con chiunque, portandovi il suo giocattolo preferito perché voi glielo lanciate.
Gli anni passano ma Fred è sempre lì, come un monumento.

Spiaggia Porto San Felice

Reviewed By Anton E - Lenzing, Austria

Für mich ist der Strand von Porto San Felice del Benaco einer der schönsten am Gardasee, weil er sehr gepflegt und öffentlich gratis zugänglich ist.
Er ist für alle Altersklassen geeignet: sauberes Wasser, feiner Kiesel, seichter Einstieg, schattenspendende Bäume, öffentliche Duschen, Boote zum Mieten, empfehlenswertes Café mit gutem Bier und köstlichen Panini, schöner Ausblick auf die vorgelagerten Inseln .... und für Hunde verboten.
Empfehlenswert ist die Mitnahme einer Liege (Matte, Decke) und eines Sonnenschirms mit der Möglichkeit ihn gut zu verankern (Dreizack, Bodenhülse ....), weil öfters der Wind weht und der Kiesel relativ kompakt ist. Natürlich sollten auch ein Picknickkorb oder eine Kühltasche mit Inhalt nicht fehlen.

Furious Cafe Portese

Reviewed By annecZ8871YT - Glasgow, United Kingdom

What a gorgeous peaceful location to have a bar. Sipping drinks overlooking lake Garda. Great variety of bar snacks. Friendly efficient service, and very reasonable. What lovely comfy seats, could easily have spent all day there! We visited twice, and would have went back, but ran out of time

Chiesa Parrocchiale di Portese

Reviewed By Johann123456 - Cham, Germany

Die Kirche von Portese liegt interessanter weise am südlichen Ortsrand von Portese.
Die Treppe und das Pflaster vor dem Haupteingang haben mir sehr gefallen.
Manchmal ist in der Kirche Musik zu hören, diese kommt aber von der benachbarten Schule.
Kostenlose Parkplätze sind direkt neben der Kirche Richtung Schule.

Chiesa di San Fermo

Reviewed By Johann123456 - Cham, Germany

die Chiese di S. Fermo oder auch Chisetta di S. Fermo liegt etwas abgelegen ganz im Osten von San Felice del Benaco bzw. Portese.
Zufahrt über die Via S. Fermo oder die Via Benaco. An dem Punkt an dem die beiden Straßen zusammen Treffen, geht ein schmaler Privatweg Richtung Kirche und Aussichtspunkt.
Die Kirche ist anscheinend die meiste Zeit geschlossen, eben wohl weil sie so abgelegen ist. Wir hatten Glück und ein Herr mit Schlüssel hat aufgesperrt und in der Kirche etwas hergerichtet.
Der Privatweg darf nicht mit dem Auto befahren werden, es ist hier auch kein Platz zum parken von Autos. Wir sind ein kleines Stück zurück gefahren und haben bei dem Strandparkplatz geparkt (Olivenhain).
Der Aussichtspunkt ist ein Stück hinter der Kirche. Es sind aber sehr viele Bäume und Büsche dort. Die Aussicht ist also begrenzt.

Birrificio Felice

Reviewed By anna c - Province of Milan, Italy

Previo appuntamento con il Mastro Birraio di questo birrificio artigianale nel centro storico del paese, abbiamo potuto visitare il cuore della produzione; accolti calorosamente, ci è stato illustrato il procedimento della lavorazione; birre preparate con tanta passione, attenzione agli ingredienti ed al gusto finale. Alcune birre maturano in botti di rovere. Abbiamo assaggiato diverse qualità di birra e alla fine ce ne siamo andati con 2 casse!!
