Locanda San Vigilio

Your basket is empty

Handsome villa right on the waters of Lake Garda

Deliciously private and quite magical – that's Locanda San Vigilio, set right beside the cool blue of Lake Garda. At the end of a cypress-lined avenue, it's almost surrounded by water.

From Our Guestbook

"Locanda San Vigilio is a one-off – a truly special place. The location can't be beat. This is old-time Italy…"
Marcus J, Lowestoft. Stayed May 2012

Know It All

Hit the Spot
A private promontory directly on the waters of Lake Garda.

Come here for...
● An iconic lakeside palazzo where royalty, stars and heads of state have stayed. ● Grand old fashioned glamour, Garda style. ● The private beach and exquisite little marina.

There's a swimming pool with terraces and loungers, a relaxed lakeside taverna beside the hotel's private beach, a little marina perfect for drinks and a smart restaurant over the water. You'll also find a helipad.

Good to know
Take care when turning into the drive from the main road – it's a sharp bend.


Rooms and suites
Seven rooms, a villa and five suites.

Special features
Comfortable and beautifully furnished rooms come with antiques and plenty of original features, plus satellite TV and wi-fi. Some have fireplaces and flagstone floors, and a couple even have private gardens.

Pillow Talk
Nab a room with a lake view if possible. For a money-no-object stay, spoil yourselves in the Grand suite, with its 16th century four-poster.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Traditional, simple home-cooked food is the order of the day. Try the Locanda's catch of the day in salt crust, or the classic tagliatelle with light pesto, mushrooms and scallops. You can eat informally on the lovely shoreside terrace bar, or enjoy the full works in the restaurant above the water. Breakfast is served on a pretty flower fringed terrace in the summer months.

Cooked and buffet breakfast is served until10:30am

Room service
Available morning and evening.


See & Do
Do take a lake steamer and visit some of the pretty towns dotting the shores of Lake Garda – each has its own feel and personality. You'll also find plenty of sailing, diving and other watersports nearby – and of course you can swim from San Vigilio's private beach or in the new pool. There are half a dozen golf courses within easy reach, as well as tennis, horse riding and clay shooting.

You're just a mile from the lively town of Garda, with its open air market and boat station. Take in the fresh air and scents of the Parco Giardino Sigurtà in Valeggio, or check out some local Bardolino vino in the nearby wine museum. Ride the rotating cable car up to the top of Monte Baldo for fabulous vistas over Lake Garda. You can walk on mountain paths at the summit (or even take off on a paraglider), or pedal around on mountain bikes.

Diary Dates
Verona's Roman amphitheatre comes alive – not with gladiators, but with opera. Take a picnic, light a candle and drink in the atmosphere before the music starts.
