Gardone Riviera is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy and the undisputed pearl of the Brescia shore. Here you will find everything: history, culture, nature, wellness, and relaxation. Dimora Bolsone is the ideal starting point to experience Lake Garda and visit the inland. It borders "il Vittoriale degli Italiani," the last splendid house of Gabriele D'Annunzio.

From Gardone you may set off on a visit to the entire western coast of Lake Garda, with the enchanting towns of Salo', Gargnano and Sirmione. The nearest cities are Brescia, Verona and Mantua.

The roots of Dimora Bolsone

date back to at least the fourteenth century and the name Bolsone is reported on Venetian maps as well as those on the side.

The manor was certainly a well-known and important place but then gradually abandoned. It practically became a ruin and such were the conditions when Raffaele Bonaspetti bought it. The reconstruction was not easy, but we wanted to maintain the spirit inherent in the ancient stones, which have been recovered, cleaned and replanted.
