Hotel Residence Sporting in Malcesine, on Lake Garda

Holiday apartments with lake view

Hotel Residence Sporting is in Malcesine overlooking the blue shores of the bay of Val di Sogno: a corner of paradise, one of the most beautiful small bays of Lake Garda. You will find yourself in an oasis of peace surrounded by olive trees, cypresses and broom. In front of you the lake is displayed in all of its splendour lying between the high mountains of the Northern Alps.

Fantastic Stay At Sporting!

We spent 10 days at Sporting Residence in a ground floor apartment, that had its own garden area which led directly to the pool. The Lake was literally across a minor one way road. Views from our apartment of the lake were truly stunning.

The accommodation was pleasant and generally clean, equipped with a basic kitchenette and large bathroom. You may need to ask staff for essentials like a Kettle(!) but staff are happy to help.

Only down sides were garden area didn't have the best fencing near steep drops especially with small children; getting into the garage down a tight steep ramp can be fun (5 point turn!) and its located next door to a very popular wedding reception venue so can be noisy at night.

The real bonus of Sporting is the Staff who were exceptionally friendly, helpful and accommodating, especially Sergio the Owner. Our toddler got very spoilt with free ice-creams, croissants and bubbles! We also benefited from free drinks whilst sun bathing!

We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic place with breathtaking views!

We absolutely love this place!! We stayed here in may 2016 to check out the place for our up and coming wedding in the castle in August, we have just returned after our wedding celebrations!!

It was perfect!!

We had 5 rooms for all our guests and ourselves and everyone loved it! The pool area is lovely and just a stones throw to the lake which we swam in every day, it's about a 20 min walk to the town or there is free cycle hire in the hotel, just help yourself! There is also a tourist bus which runs every hour from directly outside the accommodation and costs just €1 to do the full circuit, get and get off where you like!!

Great for families and great for couples!
Highly recommended! We have already emailed about booking again for next year!
