Via Giuseppe Zanardelli, 49, Castrezzone 25080 Muscoline (Brescia)
The farmhouse is located in a unique landscape: the morainic hills, which slope gently towards Lake Garda.
Open your eyes... watch what you drink!
It's not only the motto of the agriturismo, it's much more than that: it's the philosophy behind the holiday proposed by Francesca and Luigi. Enoturismo, a tourism linked to wine and the environment, which has led them to the realization of a great dream: the Agriturismo in Cantina.
Each apartment has an independent entrance. The breakfast, where included or requested, is delivered individually in each apartment. We perform daily sanitization in the common areas and in the swimming pool where chairs and beds are assigned for exclusive use. Sanitizations are performed with gloves and masks using the products identified by the Ministry. In each apartment soap and sanitizing gel are provided. Keys, remote controls and every object of common use are sanitized at the end of each stay and at least 24 hours pass between one family unit and the next one. We have large open spaces that guarantee social distancing.
Water, Earth, Air and Fire are the elements that inspired the construction of four apartments, deliberately placed on the upper floor of the wine cellar.
Spacious, bright and welcoming, the apartments all have private balconies and views over the vineyards and the beautiful sunset of the Valtènesi hills. Each one is thermoautonomous and is powered by self-produced electricity from photovoltaic panels. The furniture, with attention to the smallest details, has made it possible to recover old woods, beams and doors, recreating a rustic and rural environment, well inserted in the context of a wine production cellar.
The apartments are equipped with every comfort: wifi, air conditioning, a kitchen equipped with microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster... A perfect mix of modern and ancient, which makes them unique. TV is missing by choice, but there are books and games in boxes for the whole family.
The offer is completed by a salt water swimming pool, located in the most panoramic part of the farm, from which you can enjoy a 360 degree view over the whole Valtènesi.
Guests will enjoy a relaxing holiday, but also a cultural one: they will also be involved in some phases of agricultural production! Starting from the care of vines and olive trees, passing to the grape and olive harvest, and ending with the transformation of the products into wine and oil ... Specially organized corporate events. The most curious can also follow the winter pruning phases.
All this alternated with moments of pure relaxation by the pool or healthy walks in the farm's woods.
Of course there will also be wine and extra virgin olive oil tastings, combined with cold cuts and cheeses produced by small farms in the area.
The farm is located in the heart of Valtènesi: within a few km, you can organize naturalistic or cultural excursions, but also days on the beaches of Lake Garda.
For the more adventurous and sports lovers, the numerous cycle paths that start directly from the farm are splendid, as well as the Parco delle Fucine, ideal for climbing and climbing. Not far away there are also Manerba, Sirmione, Terme di Catullo, Tremosine and the Forra road...
Lake Garda is also full of amusement parks and water parks for the whole family: Gardaland, Caneva World, Mooviland are just some of the most famous.

Owners will be held responsible for damage to property and persons.
The facilities at "La Guarda" are brand new and very clean. The apartments are tastefully furnished and have beautiful bathrooms. Fun fact: There is no TV in the apartments, but a box full of books and board games. You can also bring some books and trade them for wine - which is such a lovely idea! There is a great pool on the compound as well. We also booked the wine tasting - which was really fun. The wine tasting included a walk through the vineyards, and then we got to taste the amazing wines that are produced at "La Guarda" (we stocked up and brought some home!). The facilities are definitely family-friendly and dog-friendly as well. We travelled with our dog and the facilities were great for him as well. There was even a dog bed, a feeding dish and a water dish for him in the apartment. The apartment had a little fenced front garden, so our dog could be in the garden without bothering anyone else. Francesca is a wonderful host who is very welcoming and always willing to accommodate her guests' wishes and needs. The communication with her worked really well. She was always very responsive and made our stay at "La Guarda" easy and comfortable.
