This newest of the Markson camps makes its home at Poiano Resort on the outskirts of Garda town. From there, guests can take in views of Lake Garda from a setting of palms, olive trees, vineyards, oleander, and cypress trees. The hotel itself has 120 rooms (the Residence has 160 1-to-3-bedroom apartments), a spa with an 50-meter swimming pool, and 6 red-clay tennis courts (4 with lights) where veteran pro Fabio conducts the intensive tennis program. The region has its own attractions, including ancient and historical places like Verona or Catullo's grottoes and wine-tasting in Bardolino.
