Casa Mary - Apartments in Prabione

Lake Garda - Tignale
In the centre of Prabione, one of the hamlets that make up the village of Tignale you will find Casa Mary, once an old house built of stone and now a completely refurbished building with 3 holiday apartments, each with its own private entrance and giving a choice of accommodation for 2, 3, 4 or even 5 persons. Staying here you will feel like one of the locals and a visit to Bar Liliana just round the corner will prove it!  From the apartments it is just a few minutes walk to the public swimming pool (free entrance to guestsstaying in Casa Mary, the Flying Frogs Adventure Park and the Nature Museum and approximately 2kms to the main 'village' of Gardola with all its bars, shops and characteristic restaurants.
All 3 apartments have TV, free wifi, bathroom with shower/wc and hair dryer, heating, and fully equipped kitchen in the living area with 4 gas rings, microwave, fridge, all necessary cutlery etc. an Italian coffee making machine and a Melitta.  The apartments do not have lake view.  Car parking is available free of charge in several small car parks close to the apartments.
Apartment Bougainvillea: max 5 persons  Situated on two floors.  Ground floor has a double bedroom with balcony facing onto a courtyard, second small bedroom with bunk beds and balcony, a storage area and a bathroom with shower. On the upper level is the living room with sofa bed - suitable for 1 person, fully equipped kitchen, attractive wood ceiling and an enormous picture window giving a spectacular view onto Monte Baldo and the roofs of the old houses in the centre of Prabione making this apartment unique in its style.
Apartment Il Limone. max 3 persons   Entrance at street level into the apartment with living area with open fire, sofa bed - suitable for 1 person, and fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, double bedroom and a large internal terrace accessible from the bedroom furnished with table, 4 chairs and a fresh water fountain.

The photos are a selection from each apartment.
Saturday arrivals are preferred but wherever possible we will try to accommodate other arrival and departure days.
Tignale village, made up of several hamlets, is not lakeside but on a high plateau on the western side of Lake Garda and opposite Monte Baldo.
Although the accommodation at Casa Mary is self catering, it is still my belief that everyone coeliac or non, should be able to eat out while on holiday.  To this end Tignale is fast becoming a coeliac haven! The central 'village' is just 2kms away and offers plenty of bars, shops and characteristic restaurants all serving gluten free options;  Al Torchio restaurant and pizzeria, where you can enjoy gluten free real Italian pizzas and beer,  in the main square is Apollo restaurant, nearby is the Portichetto bar where you will find a good selection of gf ice creams and for a special night out La Miniera restaurant, able to cater for both coeliacs and those who are lactose intollerant. 

For the more energetic throughout the summer there are guided  walks through the hills and woods in the 'High Garda Park' or to one of the other villages that make up the community of Tignale, a chance to learn and enjoy Nordic Walking or hire a mountain bike and enjoy riding along the many trails.   In the hamlet of Prabione is the Nature Museum, the public swimming pool (free entrance for Casa Mary guests) and the 'Flying Frogs' Adventure Park which has proved to be a real favourite with children and adults alike!  In the evenings local dances, discos and events are often organised in the village square. 
But don't think you are isolated from the lake just 7km away! For those who enjoy swimming in the lake, from early June to the end  of September there is a shuttle bus that goes four times a day (more frequent still in July and August) to the Porto di Tignale beach area with snack bar and availability of sun umbrellas and loungers.  For the first time in 2016, several excursions departing from Tignale were available making it easier to access the lake for anyone who wants to stay in the village but doesn't want to hire a car. A weekly bus trip from Tignale to Limone allowing time to take a boat to Malcesine and the cable car to the top of Monte Baldo, a half day bus/boat trip to Isola del Garda, coach excursions to Venice and Verona, and a full day lake tour by boat with transport to and from Limone from where the boat departs.   You can also use the daily minibus, early enough to get you to the nearest lakeside village in time to take the public boat service from one lake side village to another and return to Tignale late afternoon on the service bus. Be sure to visit Limone, Malcesine, Riva, Garda and Sirmione, the most popular places, but save time to take the ferry to Torri del Benaco for the Monday market or Salò with its elegant shops and lake side walk.
