The introduction to the estate was extensive. The prohibitions were made very clear. Especially concerning the pool and the garden. At the entrance to the pool hangs a sign with rules. Yes and what can I say.....one is "not" allowed to jump, dive, splash, not to play wi... Read more

SOLIMAGO is a very special place, the result of a dream that lasted many years and finally fulfilled. Those who come and appreciate a place like this, of which we and the staff are guardians, do so to enjoy peace, silence, fusion with nature and the elegance of the architecture ranging from the Middle Age to the stunning contemporary swimming pool.
There are people who, due to cultural lack and congenital rudeness, are not able to appreciate all this and want to prevent others from doing it too, by imposing revolting habits and customs.
We would like to be clear with our future guests: this is not a place to make a mess, to play football, to light up stinky barbecues, here jokes and cackles are forbidden, you dont park haphazardly, you don't keep the engines running, you don't enter in the pool area with shoes on, you dont dry your underwear in the middle of the garden, you don't eat and produce garbage all around the property. These are banal rules, well known, especially to those coming from Northern Europe, where intransigence is at home. Well, we mean guests must behave like civilized and educated people in the most absolute respect for nature, for living beings who find refuge here, for the important and tragic history that here had one of the decisive moments to start the process that led to the unification of Italy. For everything else, for mass tourism and its loyal followers, the Garda Lake is full of cheap campings, residences and B&B where with little expense you can go wild to make a din, turn on a barbecue and eat junk food among concrete gardens and common restrooms.

We spent 2 weeks in a beautiful stone house, good beds, good air conditioning, but the kitchen equipment left a lot to be desired...no toaster, no dishwasher, no decent wine glasses....well, not the top level that the hosts want to present. There is still some air up here, but th... Read more

Dear guest, we are sorry that you did not fully appreciate our welcome, as for your notes we would like to specify that nowhere is it written that in LA CASA NEL BOSCO there are the dishwasher and the toaster (tool not frequently used in Italy)
Two wine glasses were included in the kitchen equipment, what you say is not true.
We also noticed that you really appreciated the air conditioning by always leaving it on at 16 degrees!
The planet thanks.

Our room on the ground floor was very small. The bathroom was very roomy. The food, vegetarian, left a lot to be desired. We have been traveling in Italy for many years and have stayed at a number of accommodations; this one was a disappointment. The exterior of this place is top... Read more

Malgré la déception suscitée par cette révision fausse et injuste, nous essaierons d'être "diplomatiques" et de répondre point par point.

"Notre chambre du rez-de-chaussée était très petite."
Vous saviez exactement quelle était la taille de la chambre et quels services elle offrait avant d'arriver, vous l'avez choisie parce qu'elle était la moins chère, si vous vouliez et payiez plus vous auriez même pu rester dans un appartement de 90 mètres carrés.

"La nourriture, végétarienne, laissait beaucoup à désirer"
C'est une ferme végétarienne, tout le monde le sait, sauf vous. Ceux qui viennent ici le font souvent pour cette raison, si vous n'appréciez pas notre choix éthique, c'est votre problème (et malheureusement un gros problème pour la planète). Vos opinions sur la qualité de la nourriture ne sont pas fiables parce que vous n'avez jamais mangé ici.
Votre problème est évident : vous n'avez pas trouvé d'œufs et de bacon au petit déjeuner.

"La salle de bains était très spacieuse"
Quel est le problème ? Cette salle de bain convient également aux personnes à mobilité réduite, ce qui ne semble pas être un motif de plainte. De plus, les espaces dédiés à l'Agritourisme ont été créés dans des salles qui font partie de bâtiments historiques protégés par le Ministère du Patrimoine Culturel et ont été restaurés en conservant leurs dimensions originales.

"L'extérieur de cet endroit est superbe."
Alors pourquoi tu te plains ? Quand vous étiez ici, vous vous êtes déclaré enthousiasmé par l'endroit et l'accueil, maintenant vous vous plaignez au lieu de cela...

"En gros, nous ne nous sentions pas les bienvenus et nous étions les seuls invités à ressentir ça."
C'est le point : bien qu'on vous ait offert de riches apéritifs et toute notre disponibilité, vous ne semblez pas reconnaissants.
Vous n'avez pas apprécié notre accueil amical

"Il y avait beaucoup de règles, mais on peut les déclarer plus diplomatiquement."
Nous ne donnons pas de règles, mais des informations, il y a des choses qui ici, pour des raisons évidentes que même un enfant pourrait comprendre, ne peuvent pas être faites : jouer au football, allumer des feux et des barbecues, manger dans les espaces communs, apporter de la nourriture personnelle dans la salle à manger et l'espace piscine. Il est de notre devoir de le déclarer avant que nous puissions éviter des discussions désagréables avec les invités et tout le monde, sauf vous, nos invités accepte ces suggestions utiles et apprécie la paix et l'harmonie de ce lieu enchanté.

SOLIMAGO est un endroit spécial et raffiné pour des invités raffinés que nous sommes fiers d'accueillir ici en amis. Quelqu'un peut l'apprécier, très rarement, quelqu'un comme vous ne le peut pas.

The Agriturismo Solimago no longer offers a restaurant service.
For this reason, even all the reviews relating to the restaurant alone have been obscured.

Wonderfully located, very quiet, beautiful and very carefully restored old winery. Fantastically beautiful, large pool. Very eager and sympathetic hosts. The only (but small) drawback: partly no air conditioning

Dear Madam, we were very disappointed in your opinion, you were complaining about something that should have brought you a lot of satisfaction, ie rules (imposed by the Italian law on safety in public pools) that we ask our customers to respect. If your children were able to safely go to our pool, it's because the other hosts behaved properly. Diving and playing ball or with inflatable structures in a public pool is prohibited in all civilized countries, including France. As for your complaints about a hypothetical playground for children, we wonder where you've ever read or even guessed that there was one, your wishes and fantasies have nothing to do with our offer that contemplates a lot other entertainment for intelligent and sensitive children who do not need plastic scaffolding in an enchanted place like SOLIMAGO. Here, on Lake Garda, there are many kitsch places, from Gardaland, where to "make fun" children. SOLIMAGO is a very recommended place for children, it depends on the parents ... In Italy breakfast is not a meal, there-nya -no menu, dear madam, our breakfasts are very rich and salutary compounds of: boiled eggs, organic farmhouse cheese, vegan croissants, whole wheat organic bread, mountain butter, organic margarine, various kinds of homemade jams, honey, organic muesli, organic almond milk, fresh cow's milk, yogurt, yoghurt vegan, cake of the day, coffee, tea, aromatic water, fresh fruit from our orchard, fruit juice. If that's not enough, it's a problem for you, madam. All paradise with rules.

This lady who did not even want to give her documents at check-in, has a strange idea of hospitality and respect for the rules.
Every state and every company have their own laws and rules.
We, as managers of a farm-house swimming pool, have the obligation to enforce the rules established by the Italian Civil Code and by the Regional Law on Safety in public pools regarding individual behaviours of guests mostly if children.
This lady, despite not having signed the regulation, taking advantage of our benevolence, has intensely exploited the garden and the pool, but tells a considerable amount of lies.
It is not forbidden to use the mask in the pool, it is forbidden to wear glasses.
There have been no special treatments for other guests every guest for us is special.
This lady and her family have spent many hours alone in swimming pool, his shy children behaved very well and no one dared to tell them anything.
In well-tended gardens like ours, flowers can be touched but should not be torn.
We advise against walking barefoot on the lawn because in this season there may be wasps and other dangerous insects.
Was she disturbed by our voices? Yes, there was a single case of a small child who tried to get into the swimming pool completely dressed, with shoes and without life jacket, obviously it was immediately blocked, aloud, of course!
In our reservation offer neither air conditioning was included, nor mosquito nets, she knew very well that she could not ask for them, so we do not understand what she is complaining about.
If our stunning garden and swimming pool are so beautiful and peaceful it is thanks to our hard work and to all our well-behaving guests who accept without any question the rules and respect them, enjoying their holidays.
We hope to no longer deal with guests like this lady, unable to enjoy a wonderful place and a high level welcome but focused exclusively on her narcissistic need for personal affirmation and social revenge.
