Hotel La Paul

Lake Garda - Sirmione
NEW SUMMER 2022   Il Canneto restaurant.
Specialising mainly in fish dishes - including wonderful grilled sea fish or 'fritto misto' - Hotel La Paul now offers an à la carte menu at Il Canneto restaurant.  The hotel still continues offering half board for guests staying 4 nights or more but you can now also enjoy an evening of al fresco dining on the terrace overlooking the lake choosing from the à la carte menu.  Obviously all the dishes can be made gluten free too so enjoy increased flexibility:  book half board and then if you are celebrating a special occasion or just want to treat yourselves one evening upgrade to Il Canneto!!
'We arrived back home last week following a lovely time it Italy and Hotel La Paul in Sirmione.  Compliments to the hotel staff who really looked after my Gluten free needs at every meal.  Thanks as everything went reallly smoothly'. Chris & Denise June/July 2018
'Hotel La Paul was really nice and the gluten free food was delicious.  I liked being able to order the evening meal in advance because I was able to mention my nut allergy and also I was able to relax during the day and look forward to my evening meal.  The hotel also made me a gf toastie at lunchtime when we were relaxing and sunbathing.  We will definitely return to Italy next year!  Cathy & Steven  July 2018
'We loved the location of the hotel and it was an easy walk to the Old Town of Sirmione and when we returned it was an oasis of calm. Such a beautiful position with the garden opening onto the Lake. The gluten free food was really appreciated and in the evening it was nice to just do downstairs for dinner without any hassle.  The restaurant staff were so kind and helpful.'  Jan & Jim May 2018
'Just wanted to say thank you for organising our fab family holiday.  We all had a really great time and the gluten free food options were wonderful.  It made our holiday so much more relaxing.'  Michele, Jamie, Blake, Arran August 2017
' Hotel La Paul was perfect for the rest and relaxation we needed after all our exploring in Rome.  All the staff were so helpful and lovely and it was such a treat for me to relax on holiday and not have to worry about food all the time - it made it very special. The hotel is in a beautiful location, 5 mins from the old town which is lovely to walk round, shop or swim in the lake. The room was very nice with very good air con (which was needed) and a lovely view from our balcony!  We would definitely return.'  Hannah & Rob June 2017  (2 centre holiday with Rome)
'We found the hotel staff exceptionally friendly and always helpful - especially Nadia in the restaurant.  Yes the decor is basic but the rooms are clean and good air con.  Lociaton is perfect - on the lake.  Short walk into wonderful Sirmione.  Lovely pool too  and sunloungers by the lake.  We stayed half board and the gluten free evening menu was great.  Lovely breakfast too.  Gilli, who we booked with was most helpful and answered many questions very promptly.  She also got us a good price.  Would definitely stay again - good value.'   Tina, Douglas, Lydia, Sophie  May 2017.
'We can't thank you enough for our month's holiday at Hotel La Paul in Sirmione.  Barbara the restaurant manager was really wonderful and all the staff including the cleaners were brilliant.  Our room was overlooking the lake with a balcony.  Tony, my husband is on a gluten free diet and it was the best food he has had in any hotel we have stayed in.  It was a great breakfast and evening meal for the both of us served by very pleasant and courteous staff.  Thank you once again for booking this great holiday for us.'  Eileen & Tony  June 2016
' Just to say thanks for sorting our booking.  We had a great week's holiday in Sirmione.  All the staff at Hotel La Paul were extremely helpful.  Beautiful location, will visit again.'  Richard & Sue  September 2015
'Just to let you know we had a lovely honeymoon at Hotel La Paul.  The hotel and staff were great and the food delicious.  Thank you for your help and advice.'  Natalie & Rob.  July 2015
Thank you for all your help with our booking. We had a fabulous time exploring Lake Garda - we also managed to get to Brescia, Verona and Venice - amazing! The hotel staff were very attentive and friendly - we were both extremely sad to leave!   Karen & Mike  April 2014
I would like to thank you for the good job you did in arranging our holiday. Hotel La Paul was good as I am a coeliac - food was perfect and the chef  made a lovely madeira cake for me to bring home (lovely touch)! Everything was perfect. 
Nuala, Robert, Basil & Marie  July 2013
'Thank you for your help with choosing La Paul. We had a super time, weather was perfect, the hotel was excellent, our room was (we think) the best in the hotel, staff were helpful and attentive and really on top of gluten free.
John & Maggie  May 2012
'Thank you for organising our recent trip to Sirmione.  It was a beautiful place to visit, the only problem was we didn't stay long enough!   Hotel La Paul was lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful'.  Lorraine & David  May 2011

Hotel La Paul is right by the lakeside on the western shores of the Sirmione peninsular and just a short distance from the pedestrian only historic centre of Sirmione village with its moat and imposing Castle.  The hotel is set in its own grounds with direct access to the lake; enjoy sunbathing on the sun loungers in the garden facing the lake or even just sit in the shade with a book at the kiosk bar (open in high season) and relax and watch the passing boats; there is also an outdoor swimming pool.  For those who feel they need to stay 'connected' even when on holiday there is free wi-fi throughout the hotel and even in the garden!
For the more energetic the area around Sirmione is great for cycling as there is a choice of routes both on the flat or taking to the hills.  The hotel has some 'city bikes' for free use to cycle locally or you can hire professional mountain or road bikes and take any of the 9 tours available to other lake side villages, or visit castles, medioeval hamlets, vineyards or just cycle the route along the River Mincio south of the lake. Maps are provided by the hotel and on some occasions there are also group guided tours.
Rooms are all en suite, with air conditioning some facing towards the swimming pool and the Panorama rooms with mini fridge and tea/coffee making facilities have a balcony and lake view.  The entrance lobby has been refurbished and now has a much bigger sitting area; the restaurant has been extended with large picture windows facing the lake as has the terrace just outside the restaurant where breakfast can be taken weather permitting.  For those of you who need a gluten free diet, over the  last 14 years the hotel has specialised in catering for coeliacs so you can rest assured you will be well looked after. There is a separate buffet breakfast area and a choice of menu for the evening meal.  Home made bread, cakes, some types of pasta and many other Italian specialities are on offer and when the hotel serves breaded or fried food gluten free flour and breadcrumbs are used for all the hotel guests!
Special offer prices up to 15% less than the hotel list price and include a bottle of prosecco in your room on arrival and house wine/water with your evening meal.
Family rooms consisting of 2 rooms sharing one bathroom are available at the sister Hotel Smeraldo just across the road taking all meals at Hotel La Paul.  

Sirmione, one of the most visited villages on Lake Garda  is situated on the peninsular that runs out into the centre of  the lake along its southern bank midway between Desenzano and Peschiera. The main part of the village is a pedestrian only area, dominated by the Scaligera castle and surrounded by the original walls of the town, and now full of bars, restaurants and shops. A stroll to the end of the peninsular brings you to the Grotte di Catullo, the remains of a Roman villa which once belonged to the poet Catullus. From Sirmione it is easy to visit Verona, the home of Romeo and Juliet or have a day out in Venice taking the waterbus up the Grand Canal and then walk into St. Mark’s square either on an organised excursion or using the local buses and trains. Nearer at hand the local boat service will take you up and down the lake allowing you to visit other villages such as Garda, Bardolino, Salò or even Limone, Malcesine and Riva at the other end of the lake. You will also find many more local attractions such as the Gardaland, Caneva and the Movie Studio fun parks, the Safari Park Zoo at Bussolengo,  and the Sigurtà Botanical gardens. All through the season there are daily markets in villages around the lake, so be sure to find out which is the nearest and do some bargain hunting for your leather bag or belt to take home!
