These are the most romantic and bloomy rooms of my home, perfect for families and friends. This is the largest area of Sergio il Gufo and it can host five people: one room is double/triple, equipped with a mirror and a wardrobe from the end of the 18th century, everything recalls the flowers theme. The living room is a separate room equipped with a kitchenette, a sofa-bed and all that you can need in a house for five people. The furniture is from Sweden, from the Sixties. Every bit of this area still has the original flooring from 1767. The windows face an inner garden, green and private. This is the quietest section of the B&B and also the most fresh, the best one for the hot days of the Italian summer. Your stay will be relaxing and peaceful in our rooms, all equipped with:

Other things to note

Sergio il Gufo idea comes from a precise concept of living respecting nature and people. Its name comes from the name of the previous owner of the building, he was an art and literature lover and also an ecologist. He left us a a big library and also the discretion spirit and of sharing that make our B&B peculiar. Sergio il Gufo was built at the end of '700, it was a Friar Convent so we decided to mantain all we can of the original structure, like fireplaces, white walls and pavements. The main part of the furniture is vintage, except for some of them, they come from the nineteenth century till the seventies. It's the ideal place for a free and relaxing holiday inside one of the most beautiful historical centre of the Lake Garda.

Thank you Francois, you and your family were great hosts, I hope to see you again. We're in the historical centre of the town, you're right telling that's better to find a parking area befor to do the check in! This is a slow area, it's better to enjoy this village walking or by bike for a relaxing holiday :) Hugs from the lake! All the best, Ari

Arianna was very, very kind and a great host! She showed us many places of interest, offered a great breakfast and was really uncomplicated about check-in and our stay. The place is simple but nice and very cozy. It is very well located in the old part of the village, but very near to the lake. Thank you for everything and kind regards from Switzerland.

Thank you so much for everything, see you soon and have an amazing summer! All the best, Hugs, Arianna

Arianna was awesome at welcoming us! She gave us lots of tips, maps, restaurant recommendations, travel directions and whatnot :) We felt very well taken care of! The Flowers room is maybe the least appealing of the three on the property but it was still very wide, had everything necessary and the beds were among the comfiest I had in Italy. The bathroom being a bit small is maybe the only possible problem for someone, we didn't care about it. Parking is not extra easy, as this house is in the pedestrian center of the town but there are enough options available. Wi-fi was good. All in all, a very recommended stay! Thanks Arianna :)

Thank you Joro for your stay and your review :) It's precious to be in the historical centre but also a responsability for parking unfortunately, you're right, but there are several choices. Thank you so much for your reccomendation, it's very nice :) I hope to see you again at my home, a big hug from the lake! AT

What can I say? Arianna and Leo are the most generous, welcoming couple I could imagine. They looked after me and always made sure I had whatever I needed, as well as inviting me on social occasions. I was unwell for some of my visit and Arianna would check on me to make sure I was ok, & leave food for me. They are fantastic, warm company and helpful guides to this sweet port town. The location of the B&B couldn't be better - five minutes from the seafront and the palazzo's bars, restaurants and shops. I really liked my room - it was peaceful, with an artistic, rustic charm. It is simple but has everything you need. Thoroughly recommended to a couple or a single person as the perfect place to stay in Toscalano-Maderno.

One of our best vacations!! Arianna and her boyfriend were great hosts and made us feel like beeing home. The flat was clean and located near the center of the villiage in a idyllic typical small Italian street. The breackfast was delicious (fresh fruits, bread, juice,...). The gave us good tips for sightseeing, restaurants, The beach, etc. Thanks for The great time. We will come again.
