The apartment had tiled floors throughout which would have been fine in the summer but were chilly in early October evenings - the result was that the apartment felt rather dank. We asked how to turn on the heating and was told that the "management" wouldn't turn it on until the middle of October. A fan heater would have been nice. The bathroom was fine-ish although the shower was rather small and the towels very thin. Plenty of hot water. Main complaint though was that the kitchen area was poorly equipped - no chopping board, no teacloths or oven gloves and one blunt kitchen knife (cutlery was OK). (The lady provided the board and cloths speedily but no new knife - we bought a very effective sharpener on a local market for 5 euros). The electric cooker came with no instructions and, for a while, we were turning the knobs the wrong way as they were opposite to the way GB ones work. We found out just before leaving that there was an extractor fan - it wasn't obvious and it would have been helpful if this had been pointed out, especially when I was frying the calves liver!. I rather suspected that tenants were not expected to cook or prepare anything more complicated than a salad! The road into the apartment went past an disused factory building and a health club which seemed closed after mid evening - it was a bit spooky and I wouldn't have wanted to walk down there alone after dark.
As above, the accommodation was good, spacious and clean, comfy beds and sofa, good lighting, flat screen TV - only English programme CNN news - best to bring a DVD player, scart lead and adaptor as only one socket. There was a pool and we had a terrace in the front of the apartment and balconies at the rear (albeit overlooking wasteland). The pool was right opposite our apartment and looked clean but it wasn't warm enough to use - it was definitely on the shallow side. The location was fairly near Peschiera del Garda's mainline station which was very convenient as we wished to visit Venice, Mantua, Verona, Padua and Vincenza and could do all of these by train. An excellent, family run trattoria "Al Ponte" five minutes walk away - good, as we were about 15-20 mins away from the centre of town. I would recommend this accommodation, but at £900+ for a week, a bit pricey. The lady managing the properties was very helpful and responsive, she allowed us to check out late so we could go straight to the airport rather than hanging about town.
