While Bardolino, located on the east bank of Lake Garda, has been celebrating its annual and highly acclaimed literature festival with the sonorous name “parole sull’acqua” – words on water, Gardone Riviera, another location, situated on the west bank of Lake Garda, has been once again awarded with the blue flag for its excellent water quality.
The blue flag is awarded by the European environmental foundation FEE since over 30 years for excellent performance in environmental work. Only bathing areas and marinas, which stick to the strictly given rules of environmental criteria throughout Europe, are able to receive the flag.
As a leader on Lake Garda and the Lombardy region, the classy lakeside resort has already gained this visible symbol many times – for its water quality, its considerate treatment of nature and its commitment to the protection of the environment.
The province of Brescia is proud of what they call their “città giardino” (garden town), also because this fascinating village of 2600 inhabitants is enjoying more and more popularity and was even able to set a new visitor record in 2016. This trend is also reflected on the real estate market: Since November 2016, property prices are getting higher – throughout the last six months they have increased by 10 %.
