The Blue Flag still waves on Gardone

It is official: Gardone Riviera has confirmed the blue flag. Even this year the “garden city” on Lake Garda has obtained the prestigious recognition for water quality, for the excellence of services provided and for the environmental protection. Gardone is the unique municipality in the Lombardy region and on Lake Garda to be awarded  with the Orange Flag of Touring, with the Green Flag given by Confederazione Italiana Agricoltori (Italian Farmers Confederation) and with the Four Sails of Legambiente, an Italian environmentalist association. The town has been included into “I Borghi più belli d’Italia”, an association of small Italian towns of historical interest with the aim of preserving and maintaining villages of quality heritage. A further evidence that testifies the importance of Gardone Riviera as one of the most beautiful touristic destinations in Italy.


the Valley of the Paper Mills hosts the debut of Tener-A-Mente

Only few days left for Tener-A-Mente 2017. This week the summer festival of the Vittoriale in Gardone Riviera will officially begin with a suggestive preview scheduled on Friday 19th May in the Paper Mills in Toscolano, where Elio, musician, flautist and frontman of the famous group “Elio e le storie tese”, will deal with the reading of “Baldus” written by Teofilo Folengo, a macaronic narrative poem among the most important poems in the 1500s for Italian literature. The event has been organised to celebrate the 500thanniversary of the first edition of the poem that was printed in the XIV century right in the paper mill in Toscolano, where the poem will be presented. You can easily reach the location of the show on foot. It is only 15 minutes walking from the starting point in Largo Matteotti or with a tourist train (2 € per ticket) with departure from Caduti di Nassirya. Toscolano 1381, the most ancient paper mill on Lake Garda that even today produces hand-made paper according to the ancient tradition, has offered this evening. The show will take place in the Museo della Carta (the Paper Mill Museum in Maina Inferiore) that will be open to visitors even after the event. In the case of rain the show will take place in the room “Sala Cartai” in the museum of the paper mill. So, an evening that offers a double opportunity: attend a performance and visit one of the most fascinating places on Lake Garda.


Churchill's spirit in the Grand Hotel's junior suite

Among the most famous guests that stayed at the Grand Hotel Gardone in more than 130 years of history, Winston Churchill deserves a separate chapter. The great statesman was our guest in July 1949 and his arrival in Gardone Riviera seemed to be the return to a normal life after the Second World War. News sections of that event are unforgettable and we can state without any doubt that he left indelible traces. We have only a short video (you can have a look at this link: that represents an outstanding historic witness. The Grand Hotel that you can see in these ancient pictures is nowadays the same that wanted to dedicate him a beautiful Junior Suite, that is one of the most requested room, ( and the Winnie’s Bar, named “Winnie’s” in his honour. And even today we serve there the Pol Roger: his favourite champagne. He loved sipping it during his journey more than 68 years ago.


Comincioli, Gambero Rosso awards the excellence of his Garda oil

The extra virgin olive oil from Lake Garda has met great success all over the world. One of the most famous representatives is Mr. Gianfranco Comincioli from Puegnago, a wine and olive oil producer. He produces wine and oils of high quality that have been recognized by experts. His oil awarded by Gambero Rosso, an Italian food and wine magazine. In the prestigious magazine “Oli d’Italia” of Gambero Rosso two of his oils have obtained three leaves, that is the maximum score: the Monocultivar Casaliva and the Monocultivar Lecino Denocciolato. Mr. Comincioli is one of the pioneer in olive growing on Lake Garda: he was one of the first company to valorise the different variety of oil thanks to different pressings. He has opted for the pitted olive pressing: a complex procedure that gives sweetness to oil. In this way an oil can get its unique aroma and taste. So, you can try this special extra virgin olive oil by Comincioli at our restaurant à la carte “Il Giardino dei Limoni”. We can say that this is the gold of Lake Garda.
