Hotel La Fiorita - Lago di Garda

Limone sul Garda

The precious "pearl of the Garda" Limone, is probably the most famous tourist destination of the lake, in particular for the German and Austrian tourists. It is located on the western shore of the northern tip of the lake, in a romantic bay protected from the wind, surrounded by high, green mountains. The resort is accessible by car, from highway A22 Brennero-Modena, exit at Rovereto Sud - Lago di Garda nord, or from highway A4, exit at Desenzano or Brescia est.

What makes Limone so beautiful and appreciated, is the historical center, picturesque and full of tourist facilities such as restaurants, cafes, shops and the beautiful Promenade, permanently covered by flowers. Furthermore you will remember the small and intimate alleys where you can discover the most authentic identity of the village. We suggest to visit the old harbour (Imbarcadero), the historical church of San Rocco, the old fountain. Every corner of Limone is worth taking a picture with your camera and you will notice that at each time of the day the colours are different: various, strong and bluish during the day, pale and red in the evening, when the Monte Baldo, on the other side of the lake, reflects the sunset, creating a relaxing atmosphere for the inhabitants and the tourists. There is also another part of Limone, less famous, but equally worth visiting: the inner part covered by olive trees, with plenty of walks through the nature, along the San Giovanni torrent, or towards the mountain, reaching the monastery of Comboniani Monks. Worth visiting is also the picturesque and tiny church of San Pietro in Uliveto, near the monastery.

Limone and surroundings

During your stay in Limone you will certainly visit also other villages and interesting sites on the whole lake, which are easily reachable by car. In just 15 minutes you can reach Riva del Garda, perhaps the only proper “city” in the northern part of the lake, whereas on the opposite side the Venetian village of Malcesine, with a clear imprint of Veneto and of the Venetian domain (it can be reached also via ferry from Limone). Going south, on the other hand, you can visit Gargnano and Gardone Riviera, with their typical villas of the rich families of Brescia and Milan, soaked with culture. The most important example is the Villa-Museum "Il Vittoriale degli Italiani", home of the poet and artist Gabriele D'Annunzio, one of the most important personalities of the beginning of 1900.

A bit of history

The name Limone derives, contrary to the beliefs who always associate it to the lemon (which indeed is the symbol of the town), from the Latin "limen", which stands for border. This area has always been, in fact, the border between different empires, kingdoms or states throughout history. Before the construction of the recent road Gardesana, which began in mid-1900, Limone was reachable only via mountain trails or by boat. Therefore it was basically a village of fishers and olives-growers. In 1932, the opening of the Gardesana road, brought a decisive change in the identity of Limone, which was gradually transformed after World War II, in a turistic town.

A special gene, apolipoprotein

At the end of the 70s it was discovered in the blood of a family of Limone sul Garda, a particular chemical compound (Apolipoprotein A-1 Milano - Gene Limone), that allows these people to always have clean arteries, so that the entire circulatory system is protected. Although some believe that it was the mild and healthy climate to lead to the development of this "magic" apolipoprotein, science has proven that it is, however, a casual genetic mutation. Still there’s another fact that confirms the positive effect of the climate of Limone on the wellbeing: the bond that many German tourists have established with this area, that leads them to return every year, since a long time. Hotel La Fiorita, for example, counts among its clients, families who have been coming here since 50 years, hosted by our family.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

  • "This is the second time that we have stayed at Hotel La Fiorita and I would happily come back again and again. This is a wonderful hotel run by a wonderful family. Nothing is too much trouble. The view is stunning over the lake. You are only a short 10 - 15 minute walk into Limone and only a 2 minute walk to the lake. The pool is large and inviting with plenty of space to sunbathe around. The hotel was refurbed not that long ago and the rooms are lovely. Definitely would recommend"

  • "Great hotel and location Lovely family run hotel. Stayed on a B&B basis and hotel was well placed to walk to several restaurants, the lake itself (main beach 5 mins walk away or down the side of the hotel in less than a minute you could get into the lake for a swim). Lovely pool, we had a family room with two bedrooms which was more than adequate and a great size bathroom. Pool was a good size and there was also table tennis. Limone itself is a beautiful town with some great restaurants."

  • "Lovely, friendly hotel with pool right by Lake Garda We spent a lovely week here. Limone is a beautiful place surrounded by mountains right by the lake. The hotel is great- comfortable, clean and well thought out with quiet rooms. We loved the garden and pool right outside our room. The staff were friendly and Matteo at reception was incredibly helpful and well-informed. His restaurant recommendations were also very good. A great holiday. Thanks to the Seggala family from Diana, Paul and the boys."

    Beautiful place
  • "Perfect family run hotel in Limone We loved our 1 week stay here (a family of 4, with 2 young kids). The room was great, on the ground floor and with super easy access to the garden and pool. It was so nice relaxing there with brilliant views all around. It was never too busy, but had a good atmosphere all the same. All the staff were excellent and very friendly and take real pride in the hotel. Limone is only a short walk away and the lake is on your doorstep, just a few minutes away. So glad we booked here and hopefully will get to return soon. Thank you!"

    Perfect family
  • "This was a lovely hotel just on the outskirts of Limone, within moments of Lake Garda and with views of the mountains. It is friendly, informal and clean with a pretty garden with a swimming pool. My family had a really relaxing break here and Matteo and the team were very helpful. Highly recommended."

    This was a lovely hotel
  • "Brilliant view with generous room Positive: The view is amazing, basically you directly see the breath taking lake view from the balcony. Room size is generous and staff is very friendly. We didn't try the swimming pool and other gym facilities but would love to explore it next time visit there. One thing worth mentioning that it provides parking onsite, and it takes only 10 mins to walk to the town centre, alongside with beautiful lake view on the way! Negative: If anything, maybe the breakfast can be better based on the quality of other facilities. But it could be also that we got up very late and missed some good food. Fried egg is fresh though:)I understand this is standard checkout time but would still love to get a later checkout exception rather than 10/11am LOL"
