7 - There is a place to avoid in Toscolano Maderno

It is universally known that Residence Virgilio has a marvelous view of Lake Garda, even though it is only a kilometre and a half away.

The owner - who is me - is by all accounts the best tourist information office in the whole  Toscolano Maderno, able to send her clients to the right place at the right time, to unveil an unknown gem, to help them discover places as hidden as they are enchanting.

There is big parking and a garage where guests can store their bikes or any other equipment they wish to take on holiday.

But that's not all: on arrival, all Residence Virgilio guests receive a card that entitles them to a 10% discount in facilities that I have personally selected and which allow them to take advantage of the best tourist services in the area while saving money: from restaurants to bicycle hire; from paragliding experience to wine cellars; from boat hire to water bike hire.

There is no other similar service in the whole Toscolano Maderno and it allows holidaymakers to enjoy the best of the area at the best price.

I have built up these agreements one by one, visiting the facilities and trying out the services myself to make sure they are up to expectations: an added value that I offer to my clients.

Finally, Residence Virgilio is an anti-seismic structure, in Energy Class A, environmentally sustainable and totally barrier-free.

But it is not suitable for everyone.

For example, the added value of being able to discover the most authentic territory certainly can't compensate for the enormous, gigantic, colossal discomfort of a motorbike that every now and then passes on the secondary road that runs alongside the Residence. It makes noise, you know? Yes, I confirm: it makes noise.

Not to mention the dark, dark rock that surrounds the building, not surprisingly called the "House on the Rock": did you want a 360-degree view? No way: you have to be satisfied with the roof terrace. And no matter if you can admire Lake Garda while soaking in one of the two Jacuzzis...

And what about the kitchens in the flats? They are fully equipped, even with non-stick pans just bought and already rifled by the previous guest. Even if I wanted to, I wouldn't have the time to buy new ones for every change of guests, sorry!

But most of all, the Residence Virgilio is not suitable for those who are looking for... a washing machine: there are none in the flats. Why would you need a washing machine? We provide washed and ironed bed and bathroom linen, and if your clothes are stained there is an excellent laundry service.

To sum up, the Residence Virgilio has only a few small advantages:

  • card that entitles you to discounts,
  • parking and garage,
  • breathtaking view of the lake
  • fully equipped kitchens,
  • comfortable and well-furnished flats,
  • accessibility and eco-sustainability,
  • personal concierge

and many serious shortcomings:

  • it is a House in the Rock,
  • no washing machines,
  • it's noisy (when that one motorbike whizzes by on the straight),
  • and you have to respect the days for sorting waste.

A place to avoid, eh?
