This good, solid house, built in the 50s, was originally a farmhouse with apple orchards – owner Adi was born here. Rent the whole house, or just the first-floor apartment (the ground-floor cannot be booked alone). There’s a very homely feel to both with pretty porcelain, glassware, delicate chandeliers and plenty of cushioned places to sit and read or doze, both inside and out. If you take the whole house you have direct access to the pretty garden, or a lovely balcony on the first floor.
Adi was a chef – he can give you a cookery lesson if you want – so both kitchens brim with serious kit and you’ll also find fancy biscuits, marmalade and a special local cordial – all homemade. The owners give you a guest card for free transport and museums.
Borrow bikes and head out to the river Adige. There are many good restaurants in nearby Lana, only a short drive from Gargazon.
