With just a golf club and a handful of restaurants, Calvagese della Riviera is perfect for those seeking the quiet life. Despite being only six miles from the shores of Lake Garda and within easy reach of Brescia, the village maintains a sleepy atmosphere and has managed to steer clear of the tourist bustle.
The town’s main claim to fame is the nearby Arzaga Golf Club – a prestigious complex featuring golf courses designed by Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus.
Slightly further away is Lake Garda itself. The nearest waterside town, Desenzano del Garda, is one of the region’s prettiest, dominated by immense historic monuments like the San Martino Tower and mighty ancient castle. The city of Brescia is another regional gem, and can be reached in less than 25 minutes. You’ll find one of Italy’s largest cathedrals here, as well as many more historic delights.
