    What else ...

    Our house is located on the edge of the medieval town center of Malcesine but yet in a very quiet neightborhood. We live upstairs from my sister family and the house is surrounded by a nice garden. You can reach anything in town with a short walk , bus and ferry stations, restaurants , shopping options , beach and cablecar to the top of Monte Baldo and just enjoy a nice walk and summer swim at the lake or doing all sorts of sports , sailing, windsurfing, kite surf , paragliding , mountain biking, hiking and so on , we can help with all directions .
    I also work in a Spa on the north part of the lake so i can give rides to explore that side while i'm working .Summer can be very busy in town since is tourist season so we love to get the car and drive up the mountain and then walk into the peaceful forest with the house dog or go swim at the lake around sunset.
    We love pets and have also 4 cats . We are choosing a conscious way of life and vegetarian eating, I love to cook for my family and friends, italian and also international receipt.
    Since our apartment , my massage studio and and the guest studio are on the same floor we can't host smokers , sorry .
