Lake Garda - Limone
'Just to let you know how wonderful our break was at Hotel Lido and how much we appreciate you finding this incredible little oasis of relaxation. We couldn't believe our luck with the position of the hotel; the beach and lake were just a few steps down from our room and the view from our balcony was absolutely spectacular. We saw many other 'grander' hotels on our travels but they were either a long way from the beach or near noisy thoroughfares! Limone is perfectly placed for getting around the lake either by bus or by boat so this time we did not hire a car but flew into Verona airport and arrived at the hotel by train and bus. A special mention for Maria, the wonderful hotel owner. My husband is a coeliac and she couldn't have been more accommodating. All in all it was a dream holiday; having coeliac in the family it is usually not easy taking a holiday but this year it was absolutely wonderful, so thank you Gilli! Jill, Martin & Calum August 2015
Hotel Lido, in a quiet position but at the same time only a few minutes from the busy centre, is one of the few hotels in Limone that is directly on the beach and perfect for those of you who love the outdoors and have always wanted a holiday without the stress of traffic and noise. In fact the only traffic you will have is boats on the lake! From the moment you walk out of your room you have the choice of a swim in the outdoor pool or in the lake, the possibility to learn to windsurf or simply chill out lying on one of the sun loungers in the garden or on the beach and enjoy being able to live in shorts and T shirts all week. The hotel comprises 2 buildings, one housing reception, a small bar, the restaurant and the wonderful covered terrace overlooking the lake where meals are served throughout the summer (weather permitting) and the other building with 26 en suite rooms on ground or first floor all with spacious balcony and fully facing the lake.
New for 2015, guests at Hotel Lido can use the Wellness centre (gym, sauna, etc) and indoor pool at nearby Hotel Ideal.
In Limone there are very few hotels that can boast a position as near to the lake as Hotel Lido, a small hotel, simply furnished and definitely a place where you can spend your week outdoors between the pool, garden and lake! What really makes the difference is the terrace outside the main building where meals are served in the summer, the garden with its pool leading down to the pebble beach and the views from all of the bedrooms onto the lake and Monte Baldo opposite. From the hotel into the centre of Limone and pedestrian only area it is just a short walk along the beach and within 5 minutes you are in the middle of the village full of people, bars, shops and restaurants. It is easy to pick up a bargain in the shops - you will find plenty of shoes, bags and leather goods on display. Coach excursions to Venice, Verona, Lake Tour and Dolomites can all be booked at the local agency. If you prefer, take the public boat service from one lake side village to another visiting Malcesine (with a ride on the cable car to the top of Monte Baldo) Riva or Torbole at the top end of the lake or further afield on a full day out to Garda, Sirmione or Salò.
