Villa Caratti: the luxury holiday home on Lake Garda

Who says that luxury is only found in hotels? Villa Caratti is a luxury house for rent to spend your holidays on Lake Garda.

Built in the late 1800s by the Scottish Barons of Mildmay, it is located at the northern end of the Bay of Sirens. This area - recognised and appreciated for its charming landscape - enchanted this noble family who established their holiday home here. Lots of famous people have found rest in these rooms: Maria Louise, the Duchess of Parma, Winston Churchill and Prince Charles of England.
In the 1950s, Sir Mario Caratti bought the villa and it has been named after him ever since. Renovation work began in the 1990s, which allowed the addition of an attic floor and a lift; in 2011 the current owner, Daniel Giacometti, undertook an important renovation, giving Villa Caratti its distinguishing modern character thanks to its large outdoor park, basement wellness area and outdoor infinity pool.

The house to rent for your Christmas holidays

The Christmas holidays are one of the most magical times of the year. It is the ideal time to have a holiday with family or friends and get away from the frenzy of work. The area round Lake Garda offers lots of things to do during this holiday, suitable for all ages and tastes. If you are looking for a luxury residence to rent, the best solution is Villa Caratti: a luxurious villa overlooking the Bay of Sirens, one of Lake Garda’s most beautiful corners. You can spend Christmas and New Year in complete comfort, enjoying the landscape with the company you want, whether you’re with friends or family. You won't have to give up anything; you can immerse yourself in local traditions and fully enjoy the spirit of the most anticipated time of the year without sacrificing comfort thanks to the many services you can book at Villa Caratti.

Villa Caratti: luxurious rooms for complete relaxation

Comfort starts with rest. Villa Caratti’s luxurious rooms guarantee rest in total comfort, with a view of Lake Garda. Located on the villa’s first floor and attic floor, all Villa Caratti’s rooms are elegantly furnished and equipped with walk-in closets, private bathrooms, digital and satellite televisions and free Wi-Fi.
The Lake Suites are on the first floor, comprised of three double bedrooms and one bedroom with two single beds; each room on this floor has a magnificent view of the lake. The attic floor is the ideal solution to sleep children or for any guests you want to invite to spend your holidays together; five bedrooms, for a total of eight people, are available for complete relaxation. The luxurious rooms of this villa can accommodate up to sixteen people: lots of space and fun for everyone!

All the services for a luxury holiday on Lake Garda

In addition to its many luxurious rooms, Villa Caratti offers a full range of services for an unforgettable holiday. Included in the booking price, there are daily cleaning services and a midweek change of sheets and towels and a person will always be available for information and needs of any kind. There are also some services, available by reservation, for an extra cost. You can rent cars or boats – in fact, the villa has a small pier - with or without a driver or skipper to get to all the places around the lake or for a small cruise. If you have small children and need help, you can request the babysitting service, while if you need to unload the tension of work, you can turn to a yoga teacher or a personal shopper – two different ways to achieve the same goal. Home shopping and a personal chef are the ideal solution to enjoy great meals without sacrificing the comfort of home. Finally, there are guided tours around Lake Garda and tastings of local food, wine and olive oil.

Villa Caratti’s kitchen for Christmas and New Year

Christmas and New Year are synonymous with dinners and lunches; at home or in a restaurant, with family or friends, they are part of our tradition and have become appointments that you can’t give up. During your winter break at Villa Caratti you have the chance to maintain these traditions, while comfortably immersed in luxury. You can take advantage of the services of a personal chef, who will cook an exclusive dinner for guests, having previously agreed the shopping, courses and ingredients with you to meet the needs of different tastes and any allergies.
The large fully-equipped kitchen will be at your complete disposal; the chef will find everything they need to prepare dishes and you can enjoy a breathtaking view directly over Lake Garda. And the table? Villa Caratti’s dining room is next to the kitchen and you can set the table for up to sixteen people. You can decorate the room to your liking and prepare the table for a party.

A holiday home with an indoor pool for winter holidays

However, a good holiday is not only about rest and good food, but also about relaxation and wellness. Villa Caratti’s basement is fully equipped to offer guests a wide range of activities. A cinema room with a giant screen and comfortable armchairs is ideal for film lovers, who can draw on a well-stocked Blu-ray video library. The billiard room is a classic that never goes out of fashion, especially if the game is accompanied by a glass of wine from Villa Caratti’s cellar. For wellness lovers, the basement also includes a sauna, a Turkish bath and a heated swimming pool with hydromassage; all the wellness rooms overlook Lake Garda. The more daring can swim outdoors: the infinity pool in the garden is heated. This luxury villa, resting on the shores of Lake Garda, offers all the opportunities and comforts necessary for an unforgettable Christmas holiday.
