Our tour to the historical residences takes us south to one of the most beautiful view points on Lake Garda, Punta San Vigilio. This peninsula at the gulf of Lake Garda houses the Villa Guarienti, also known as Villa Brenzoni.
The building, which dates back to the 16th century, seems to be the work of Veronese architect Michele Sanmicheli, who is also responsible for various other projects in the area. The villa complex, commissioned by the Venetian Agostino Brenzoni, is surrounded by a garden, in which cypresses, olive and lemon trees abound; trees which perfectly represent the vegetation on Lake Garda. An inn with a lake view is also part of the building, as are a small church, probably built before the villa, a building with a double loggia and a lake view as well as an adjacent small harbour.
The Villa Guarienti houses a restaurant and a hotel and is open to visitors.
The complex is within easy reach of the main road which runs along the eastern shore of Lake Garda, but also from Lake Garda itself, given that the small harbour is still operating today
