Sergio il Gufo idea comes from a precise concept of living respecting nature and people. Its name comes from the name of the previous owner of the building, he was an art and literature lover and also an ecologist. He left us a a big library and also the discretion spirit and of sharing that make our B&B peculiar. Sergio il Gufo was built at the end of '700, it was a Friar Convent so we decided to mantain all we can of the original structure, like fireplaces, white walls and pavements. The main part of the furniture is vintage, except for some of them, they come from the nineteenth century till the seventies. It's the ideal place for a free and relaxing holiday inside one of the most beautiful historical centre of the Lake Garda.
Breakfast is served from 08.00 to 10.00, from 07.00 on request.
Library books are for information only, those available to the loan will be returned at the end of the stay.
The room is rented from 3pm the day of arrival and must be vacated by 10am on the day of departure.

Buongiorno, sono Arianna, lavoro come artista e illustratrice. In particolare mi dedico a disegno, incisione e calligrafia. Abito con il mio compagno Aurelio, tre tartarughe e la mia adorata micia Ottavia. Spesso la mia mamma e i miei amatissimi amici vengono a godersi il lago e a farmi compagnia. Mi piacciono la musica, nuotare, la casa piena di libri, i viaggi poco prevedibili e vivere nella casa di Sergio il Gufo qui sul Lago di Garda, uno dei luoghi più belli che abbia mai visto. La nostra casa un ex convento di fine Settecento ed è ancora in gran parte autentica, un posto speciale dove sono i benvenuti anche i vostri piccoli amici animai. Perché un viaggio sia ben riuscito considero l'ospitalità uno dei fattori principali quindi amo ricevere e dare consigli e svelare piccoli segreti a chi ospito quindi sarà un piacere presentarvi le innumerevoli risorse dei dintorni. Prima di trasferirmi qui vivevo nella mia amatissima Milano, che apprezzo in ogni suo aspetto e dove torno molto spesso per lavoro e per piacere ma visitando questo posto credo non mi chiederete perché mi sia trasferita! A presto!
