A dog-friendly residence on Lake Garda
Recommended activities during your holiday on Lake Garda with the dog
A few steps from Borgo Alba Chiara you will find a great beach, called "Bau Beach", ideal for sunbathing by the lake and to make your dog run. Are you ready to dive together in the fresh water of the great Lake Garda? Why not, your four-legged friend will also be able to meet new friends right on this dedicated beach. To reach it, all you have to do is go down the Borgo road to the Statale, cross it and continue straight for 1 minute on foot, you will find it on your left. For any need, there is a bar restaurant that will surely know how to respond to your requests.
2. The Valle delle Cartiere
If your dog likes walking in nature (but who doesn't like it?) and splashing around in the water, we suggest you to visit the Valle delle Cartiere on foot, a wonderful and suggestive route to discover the typical nature and also a historical place, where the first paper mills along the river Toscolano have arisen. Today the ruins represent an exciting historical testimony. Do not forget to bathe with your 4-legged friend in the river water, certainly colder than the lake but very clean, adventurous and full of waterfalls.
3. Walking along the lakefront
Here we are at the moment of relaxation. In the evening it will be truly romantic and relaxing to walk along the lakefront and in the historic center of the town, perhaps eating a good ice cream, in the company of your dog. Your eyes will discover really exciting landscapes.
4.Trekking on Monte Pizzocolo
If you are a lover of mountain trails and are curious to see Lake Garda from above, we recommend that you choose one of the paths that leads to the summit of Monte Pizzocolo. The route can also be done comfortably with your four-legged friends and will allow you to see breathtaking landscapes of both the surrounding mountains and the lake.
It is recommended to go up in the morning so that the temperature is not too hot yet. Once you arrive you can stop and eat your packed lunch while observing the beautiful panorama that opens up in front of you.
5. Visit to the Rocca di Manerba
A few kilometers away from the Residence Borgo Alba Chiara you will find a very suggestive archaeological site: we are talking about the Rocca di Manerba which can be reached either on foot or by car. Once you arrive you can take a tour to see the remains of the fortress and you can also visit the Valtenesi Archaeological Civic Museum located a few steps from the fortress.
6. The rabbit island
In front of the coast of Manerba there is also the island of San Biagio, better known as the island of rabbits because it is populated by many specimens of these animals. We recommend that you only go if your four-legged friend has a quiet disposition because these rabbits are free to move around the island. It can be an excellent opportunity to take a short boat ride and to see the lake from a different perspective than usual.
