Villa Canneto by La Paul

Lake Garda - Sirmione
Villa Canneto is the latest addition and under the same management as Hotel La Paul and Hotel Smeraldo.  A completely refurbished villa with 9 mini apartments next to Hotel Smeraldo and overlooking the lake on the eastern shore of the Sirmione peninsular.  Directly in front of the building is a private garden with sun loungers and umbrellas facing the lake. The villa and apartments are fully automated with a key code to enter into the private car park and a similar code to enter the apartments allowing for the Villa to remain open all year even when Hotel La Paul and Smeraldo are closed. 
The 9 studio apartments are divided into Panorama for max 3-4 persons - front facing to the lake and on both ground and first floor with full lake view and either balcony or terrace, Classic for 2 persons on first floor and a side view to the lake from the balcony and finally Standard for max 3 persons on the ground floor with a partial lake view from the terrace.  All the apartments have air conditioning / heating, wifi, wall safe, TV with satellite channels and modern furnishings with a double bed (which can also be made up as twin beds), a mini kitchen with 2 induction rings, sink, fridge, microwave, kettle, a rack for drying clothes and bathroom with shower/wc, plus balcony or terrace with table and chairs.  Panorama and Standard also have a sofa bed which becomes a small double suitable for 1 adult or 2 children. 
The apartments can be booked either as self catering or with breakfast in La Paul or Smeraldo during the normal hotel season.   For those who wish to eat out in the evenings it is an easy walk into Sirmione town centre and the many restaurants or you can try the à la carte menu at Restaurant Il Canneto in Hotel La Paul.  The menu can be made gluten free if needed and you can either eat in or ask for a 'take away' and eat in your apartment. 
During the period from April to end of October check in for the apartments is in Hotel La Paul also right by the lakeside and opposite Villa Canneto 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.  During the season when the hotel is open it is possible to 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.
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, (the stop for the service bus which runs from Brescia to Verona is not far from the Villa) 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 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!
