Local area


Limone is a town on the shore of Lake Garda, with sheer, rocky cliffs rising up behind it. The area is the furthest north location where lemons and citrus fruit can be grown, although the name Limone is unlikely to come from “lemon”, as the town is thought to pre-date the lemon growing industry. The name’s origin is disputed but is most likely to come from the latin “limen” meaning border, as Lake Garda sits in three regions of Italy. Nowadays, Limone is a quaint town, with several sites of interest including the museums and Limonaia del Castel.


As with Limone, Malcesine, across the lake, dates back to Roman times. This historic town lies between Lake Garda and the mountain range of Monte Baldo behind. You can reach Malcesine by ferry and can take the cable to the summit of Monte Baldo, where you can enjoy mountain top walks, or just appreciate the extensive views.

Riva del Garda

Along the lake from Limone lies the charming town of Riva, which has several attractive sights, including its old town, museum, and the Torre Apponale. The town is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day, while visiting the cafes in the

Transport to and from Limone was by water until 1932 when the Gardesana Occidentale road was built.

Rosalind Hoyes

Rosalind trained with Body Control Pilates in London and ran a busy teaching practice for many years, relishing the opportunity to bring the benefits of Pilates to a huge variety of people from all walks of life, including professional athletes. After running a successful studio in Northamptonshire she de-camped to the Peak District to fulfil her love of walking and has since focused on teaching private clients and running Pilates retreats and holidays. Her teaching experience has led to an increased fascination with the link between mind and body and, after studying Mindfulness at Bangor University, Rosalind has incorporated this into her Pilates classes with great effect.
