Peschiera del Garda, Verona, Italy
Peschiera Orchid is a wonderfully restored 17th Venetian villa set in the countryside, just minutes from the shores of Lake Garda. Surrounded by a vast park of green, this exclusive residence is a peaceful retreat with just 15 apartments and 2 wonderful villas.
Owned and restored by an aristocratic family, Peschiera Orchid retains original architecture and antiques yet with a modern twist, making it a unique place to holiday. In fact, the family of Earls still live in the grounds!
Set in the countryside, the residence is a short walk from the river Mincio that runs from Lake Garda for more than 60 km past Mantova and into the River Po. The wonderful lakeside town of Peschiera del Garda is just a 5 minute drive away and offers a great selection of shops, restaurants and cafes…try Bar Porto in the port…it’s a great location to catch a pre-dinner aperitivo and watch the world go by!
The residence has it’s own lovely pool but if you’re for a little more “action”, there’s a renowned 18 hole golf course and sports facilities including gym, tennis court and beach volley, all within walking distance.
There’s a restaurant and pizzeria too and if you’re looking for something a little more chilled, there’s a fantastic wellness centre & spa, just a short stroll away. All of our guests are entitled to a discount of up to 20% on all facilities, so just ask when you arrive!

This quiet complex is located on a scenic golf course about 4 kilometres from Peschiera del Garda. It's a few minute walk from the hourly free shuttle bus between the area and Peschiera. It operates daily from 9 am to 11 pm except for 1 pm and 2 pm. The roads outside the grounds are narrow, busy and unsuitable for walking. The outdoor communal swimming pool was frequently used by our family, which includes 4 children aged 9 &13. Residents can avail of a 20% discount on meals at the nearby hotel and some other services. Also on the site is a sports centre and a wellness centre. We bought tickets here and enjoyed a day visit to Movieland and Caneva Aquapark using a free bus which returned later. Overall, a very enjoyable week.
