Park Hotel ZanZanu

Lake Garda - Tignale
"We had a fabulous time in Italy and especially at the ZanZanu hotel.  The staff were all lovely and they looked after us all, especially Nicole, so well. We never had to worry about Nicole's meals and it made things so much easier.  We also loved Lake Garda - thanks so much for your help and suggestions for what to do during our 10 days." Emma, Sean, Nicole Robert  July 2014
"We had a great holiday, Tignale was very picturesque as was the view of the lake from the hotel.  Hotel ZanZanu was lovely and friendly, we hope to return again in the not too distant future for another 'senza glutine' holiday".  Julie, Mark, Ross, Lewis  August 2013
 "..the food was first rate. It was nice to let someone else worry about the ingredients in the meals, and the individually served breakfast selection was much appreciated. We will be recommending the hotel to various coeliacs"  Nick & Margaret September 2010
"We had a wonderful holiday at ZanZanu & really enjoyed the area around Tignale.  The hotel was excellent with great facilities for the children, friendly staff and lovely menu each night to choose from and for me being a coeliac it was excellent"  Gary, Caroline, Daniel, Rosy  July 2009
"This was my first holiday outside Ireland since becoming coeliac and I never felt better and had no stomach problems at all.  I loved the bread rolls at the hotel - they were my daily treat!"  Mary, William & the girls.  June 2007
High above Lake Garda with spectacular views onto the lake and Monte Baldo opposite, Park Hotel Zanzanu is south facing giving you sunshine from early morning until late afternoon so there is plenty of time to get that sun tan lying round the pool!   The hotel is great for families with plenty of space for children to run around, an indoor and outdoor pool including incorporated children's pool, tennis courts, table tennis and play area for small children. The hotel serves a buffet breakfast and 3 course evening meal plus salad bar and at lunchtimes snacks and light meals are available near the pool area.  All rooms are en suite and have balcony with side facing or front facing view onto the lake. ALL hotel rooms now have air conditioning. Advise early booking for family rooms!
Park Hotel ZanZanu also has several apartments for 4 or 6 persons within the hotel grounds by the tennis courts.  These can be booked either on a self catering basis or half board taking meals in the hotel. Use of hotel facilities included in the price.  Planned for 2018 an extra 10 apartments all with 2 bedrooms within the hotel grounds.

If you enjoy wonderful views of lakes and mountains and don't like too much heat Tignale is the place to be! Half way up on the west side, rather than on the lake shore the village is at 450 mts above sea level giving you not only a wonderful view to the southern end of the lake but on a clear day you can see the Appenine mountains aswell!
Tignale is fast becoming a coeliac haven! Made up of several hamlets, the central 'village' is just 1km from Park Hotel Zanzanu and offers plenty of bars, shops and characteristic restaurants all serving gluten free options;  Al Torchio restaurant and pizzeria,  serving gluten free real Italian pizzas and beer - great for lunchtimes, 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 is able to cater for both coeliacs and those who are lactose intollerant. 
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. Since its opening in July 2014 the 'Flying Frogs' Adventure Park 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 mid June to beginning of September there is a shuttle bus that goes four times a day to the Porto di Tignale beach area with snack bar and availability of sun umbrellas and loungers. New in 2017 there was a daily minibus service from Tignale to Gargnano allowing you to visit other lake side villages using the public boat service.  In 2016, several excursions departing from Tignale became 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. Apart from  weekly coach excursions to Venice and Verona, there is a half day excursion by bus/boat to visit the Isola di Garda and a full day lake tour by boat with transport to and from Limone from where the boat departs.   You can also take the local bus down to the nearest village and take the public boat service from one lake side village to another. 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.
