At around 800 metres from Bardolino centre and beach, you will find the charming Residence Ca' Bottrigo amidst vineyards and a lush green garden. There are 10 apartments for hire here and a large swimming pool for you to enjoy.
This former farmhouse was converted into apartments in 2000. It is very spacious and there is plenty of room both inside and outside where you can take a stroll amongst the vineyards. The town of Bardolino is within walking distance so you don't necessarily need a car here. In-fact you are in the heart of the wine region when you visit Ca' Bottrigo so wine tasting and exploring the vineyards is a must. Not to mention the numerous local restaurants in the area offering wonderful cuisine. If you are a biking enthusiast, it is also a great place to explore with endless miles of scenic terrain.

Overall we were very happy with our stay in Ca' Bottrigo. We booked a 2-bed apartment which was actually a one-bed and a studio combined. The studio (5M) was on the first floor and had wonderful views over the lake; the adjoining one-bed apartment (5A) was fine but faced the back of the building with a disappointing/non-existent view and the kitchen/living area was small particularly as we were also using it as a sleeping area. There are 10 units in the building and there were a mixture of families staying there; couples of varying ages, some with babies, not many older children. The pool was often empty, even in August, and there were plenty of sun-loungers, tables and chairs. Parking can be a little 'tight' but manageable. The 15 minute walk in to Bardolino is relatively flat and pleasant but there is no street lighting on the road by Ca'Bottrigo so a torch was useful. We missed the fact there wasn't any air-conditioning although the local agents provided us with one fan which was invaluable. Being on the first floor we also opened the windows wide at night as there was usually a good breeze coming down from the hill - this might not have been an option on the ground floor. No cleaning was provided in our apartment during our two-week stay which surprised us - also we had hired towels and sheets but these were not changed which was disappointing. WiFi was excellent throughout our stay.
We were very satisfied with our stay at Ca'Bottrigo. The accommodation were great. The only thing which didn't work, were their coffeemakers, but they were quickly replaced with new ones. Really good service! The pool was lovely, and there were lots of space. Walking distance to the small lovely town Bardolino, where there's lots of restaurants and shops.
Super location and suitable walking distance to Bardolino (800 m.)
Super pool and really good wi-fi.
Stayed at the 3rd floor, could have used a balcony.
Air con was missing.
Besides that, a really great place, really cosy.
Lovely with the vineyards around the house.
Lies perfectly if you want to be rid of the worst crowds and don't mid walking for 15-20 mins down to Bardolino centre and lake.
The equipment in the kitchen is limited. Bring a sharp knife along with a ladle, palette knife and some kitchen towels.
No air con, but we didn't think it was that big of a problem in 28-30 degrees.
