Portese is a small town nested in the hills of the Valtènesi, amongst vineyards and olive groves overlooking the gulf of Salò and the mountains of the Upper Garda Park.
A fishing and farming town, Portese has for centuries made a living from the nearby lake and land.
Now times have changed but we can still say that life in Portese is slow.

Le Chiusure is located in the oldest part of the village, right next to the ruins of a castle, with our vineyards and olive grove on the other side. An old stone wall surrounds the property and protects the privacy of those that choose to spend some time at our place.

At the entrance two century-old mulberry trees and a small chapel built in the 1700s introduce you to the courtyard structured in the typical fashion of rural houses around the lake.

The apartments have all been restored and decorated in keeping with the style of the house. From the windows you can enjoy views of the hills, the garden and the inner courtyard. Our guests have at their disposal a portion of the garden and a small library of books and photographs describing the lake and the surroundings.

The apartments (originally an old loft, a barn and a porch respectively) are located on different floors of the home and each one offers something unique.
They may be chosen for their individual features but are all equally comfortable.
