Desenzano Apartment Overview

This adorable attic apartment is located steps away from the main piazza in Desenzano and is a short walk from the lake. The unit is located on the top floor without access to an elevator, so be prepared to climb four flights of stairs. (I did it with a 50 lb suitcase) It may seem like a lot, but I found it to be worth the effort.


I was able to walk from the train station pretty easily to the apartment. It takes approximately 15 minutes, but you can also take a taxi if you need to. Francesca provided manuals with clear directions and information about the unit.

The Apartment

The apartment itself is very spacious. The bedroom is large and very firm with tons of closet space (perfect if you’re a heavy packer), living area, and a fully equipped kitchen. I think my favorite part, though, was the massive outdoor space. A spacious patio area contains a large table set, a small bistro table, and a lounger. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet dinner at home or a glass of wine at night under the stars. 


If location is important to you and you’re looking for ample space, this apartment is the perfect place for a stay in Desenzano del Garda.

What to Do in Desenzano

Desenzano is often overlooked due to the popularity of Lake Como.  However, I find this lake to be much less crowded and just as beautiful.  When I visited Desenzano, I booked a driving tour around the lake where I was able to drive (well, ride passenger) a vintage Alfa Romeo Spider convertible.  I also spent a lovely evening on the lake on a sunset sailing excursion.  There are so many options!  Looking for something else?  You can find a variety of tours on Lake Garda here.
