Sentiero del Ponale, Riva del garda

The Strada del Ponale connects Riva del Garda and the Valle di Ledro. Originally built in the second half of the 19th century, it was replaced by a modern tunnel only 20 years ago. Since 2004 it has been closed to traffic and limited to cyclists and hikers. Thanks to its position and architecture, the old Strada del Ponale is one of the most beautiful historical panoramic roads in Europe.

We start our hiking tour in the centre of the village Riva del Garda and hike along the shores of the lake, passing the old hydropower station. After about 1 km we cross the Gardesana road and follow the signpost D01 towards Ledro. Soon we reach the wonderful panoramic trail carved into the rocks and leading through small tunnels.
After further two km of steady and gentle gradient the trail turns right and we look down to the beautiful bay at the entrance of the Valle di Ledro. Here, the road divides into a bicycle track and a hiking trail. We cross a bridge before we hike up some steps to reach a forest road. From here, we continue our tour into the Valle di Ledro. After a short asphalted section (Pregasina road) we pass the village Biacesa. Crossing the village Pre di Ledro we hike upwards towards Molina di Ledro and finally reach Lake Ledro with its very interesting pile-dwelling museum.

Our Olive Oil

We produce our olive oil, grown solely in Cervano and made with love by our family since 1818.

Nothing is put on the trees, only sun and the healthy air of lake Garda, we are very proud to have the real Mediterranean taste.

From our trees we extract 3 different kinds of oil:

Gargnà: the name comes from Gargnano, the village below Cervano, it is a particular and very rare type of oil because the full harvest is only once every 4 years, the taste is fruity and light with olfactory notes of artichoke and almond, this olive oil is produced immediately after the harvest to preserve the fragrance, which is very delicate.

Casaliva: the typical autochthonous variety from Lake Garda, intense golden yellow with shades of green, clear, bitter and spicy with hints of green cloves, decidedly intense olive oil.

Min√¨ol: the origin of the name come from “Minimum oleum” because the berry is smaller, difficult to collect and the oil product is very rare,and has a very¬†light taste

Golf Club Bogliaco

Situated in front of Cervano , close to the hills on the western side of lake Garda, Golf Bogliaco lies in a basin at an altitude of 100 metres, covered with oleander, laurel, cypresses, olive trees and other plants typical of Mediterranean vegetation. The raised position gives a splendid view over almost the full length of the lake and the mountains which surround it. The decidedly mild climate offers the possibility of playing all year round.

Since 1988 it has been owned by artist André Heller, and now contains interesting sculptures by Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, and so forth, set among more than 500 species including cactus, edelweiss, ferns including Osmunda regalis, magnolias, orchids, water lilies, and trees.

Agriturismo Cervano and Lake Garda – overview Days 9-14 :)

Madified Mum

Lake Garda was stunning. Agriturismo Cervano was amazing. So they get a blog of their own! (I’ll do a couple of blogs for the 0ther stuff we did while at Lake Garda)

Agriturismo Cervano is on the hillside above and slightly north of Tocalero Maderno, about half way down the West side of Lake Garda. It is a converted farm that has been in the owners family for ~200 years (I think this is what we were told!). On their advice we took the north side, via a golf course, to get there from the main lake road. It was mostly a single track with a few passing places… Apparently the other way in is worse! Despite us being used to driving on narrow Cumbrian roads, we’re glad we took their advice! Once through their gate there was still a few minutes of switchbacks through the olive groves before the…
