Holiday Garda is a licensed agency specialised in holiday rentals for prestigious, luxury and family villas on Lake Garda. Since 2010, we offer unforgettable holidays to our guests and rigourous care to the properties we manage. Our service is defined by a meticulous attention to detail that is designed to make every holiday moment perfect.
With Holiday Garda's complete set of services, our guests have the best of both worlds: the absolute privacy and independance of a private home in a beautiful location, together with the luxury of comprehensive service and hospitality.
Holiday Garda is a partnership of three extraordinary women, each with a specific skill set and background that together make our whole truly greater than the sum of its parts.
Christina Ayer, Sales and Marketing Director: is mother tongue English speaking, born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. Christina has been living in this area of Garda for more than 16 years, and knows what its like to be a stranger in a strange land. She knows where to find many of the hard-to-find pleasures of home (need maple syrup? Or how about can't breakfast without baked beans?) and how to help you adapt and adjust most comfortably to Italy, Garda, and the way things work here. Christina is an entrepreneur with long experience in business management and administration, and a specific background in new technologies and Internet marketing. Her job is to manage the villa marketing, bookings and administration, and all the guest communications and needs before arrival.

She is expert in the local area as only a true born local can be, and she understands the needs of travellers visiting here from abroad. She and her concierge team are available 24/7. She is responsible for ensuring every aspect of our guests' stay is comfortable and perfect, from the properties themselves and their preparation, to special experiences organised for you in the villa, to assistance to make all your interactions with local services and the local area both easy and stress-free.
Cristina Bonomi, Property Services Director: is Italian, and has lived in this area for many years. Her background is in real estate and property management, and she is expert on the properties and their maintenance.
