Forty-five years old. This is the time that has passed since that distant 1978, when the first residence with swimming pool was built in Torbole sul Garda (to date still the only structure that has apartments and two swimming pools with a garden throughout the municipality) thanks to the stubbornness and the sacrifices of a couple: Aurelio Toblini, born in Torbolano and Johanna, a stubborn German woman who always takes a step forward, a bold mind and a gaze that is sometimes visionary but always lucid and aware, able, together with her husband and later to his sons, to create two structures that are still today a point of reference for guests from all over Europe.
The identity of Toblini Apartments
The brand consists of two structures, apparently very different from each other: Residence Toblini and Casa Toblini Al Lago, the first in the center of Torbole and just a two-minute walk from the beaches and the main square of Torbole; the second is located directly on the cycle-pedestrian path and beach of Torbole, one of the most beautiful on all of Lake Garda. Casa al Lago’s proximity to the main sailing clubs in the area makes it one of the most requested structures by sportsmen, especially passionate and professional sailors looking for a totally tailor-made structure for a water sportsman.
The strong points of Casa al Lago: the spearhead of the Toblini Apartments
Arriving at Casa al Lago one is immediately greeted by a sense of amazement and it is easy to understand why: here it seems as if one can touch the waves of the lake with a finger.
The location is undoubtedly the most notable plus of this structure which consists of six totally independent apartments with no common areas, thus guaranteeing total privacy.
Another great advantage is the parking space directly in the structure. Spacious, comfortable and free, with the possibility of an additional extra seat upon reservation subject to availability.
Casa al Lago is one of (only) four structures in Torbole directly on the beach.Sports enthusiasts and families love this structure also for the other pluses reserved for them:
free trolley to transport the SUP/SURF
free trailer for transporting boats to the nearby land owned by the Toblini family which is just 50m away
rigged sail depot
guests can make free use of all the advantages and services of the other structure – Residence Toblini – just 100 meters from Casa al Lago.
The pluses of Residence Toblini
Residence Toblini is a bit the main “house” of the Toblini Apartments, everything starts from here. The concept, the brand with a family character but organized in detail.
This is where families but also friends and solitary travelers are welcomed, mostly sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts who can enjoy the very central position with respect to the historic center – but also away from its chaos and car traffic – and the beaches which are only 2 minute walk.
Over the years the structure has been constantly modernized without distorting its soul, the imprint that mother Johanna and father Aurelio wanted to give to the residence and that Claudio and Stefano, their children, have carried forward with dedication and love.
The apartments are divided into design and comfort, studios, two-room and three-room apartments overlooking the lake or the imposing mountains of Trentino. At guests’ disposal there are two swimming pools: an internal one heated to 27° with solar panels and an external swimming pool in the greenery and large garden.
Right in the greenery and ample space you can relax, read a good book, sunbathe or sip a good drink.
In fact, the structure also has a comfortable bar and lounge available for its guests.
The parking space is the real highlight of this structure: in fact, few can boast a large and comfortable free parking (one parking space per apartment) for their guests directly on site. The car park also has an electric charging station for e-cars powered by photovoltaic panels.
From here it is possible to experience a totally car-free holiday.
In fact, bike enthusiasts will find a tailor-made structure for them: once they arrive at the Residence Toblini they can make free use of a modern video-monitored bike deposit where they can not only leave their bikes but also wash them after use and charge them – if electric – with the free electric charging station.
Furthermore, at our guests’ disposal there is also a launderette for sportswear with an automated washing system for saving energy and consumption.
A green holiday
Precisely eco-sustainability is a further and important aspect for the Toblini family.
Every year small, big steps are taken to make the structure more and more green from an energy point of view.
In fact, in recent years the Residence has invested in clean energy by installing solar and photovoltaic panels (with the production of 35,000 kw equal to a saving of 6.65 tons of CO2), columns for electric charging of bikes and cars, a distributor of still and sparkling water available to guests to avoid the use of plastics and has always promoted outdoor sports as not only a holiday practice but a real lifestyle. Here you can leave the car to move on foot or by bike to discover the most popular nature trails in Europe: the Ponale, the Busatte-Tempesta and all the cycle paths that start right from Residence Toblini and Casa Toblini Al Lago.
But perhaps the most important plus, the aspect that still today, after almost fifty years, makes many guests choose these structures, some of whom have also become friends, is this: the Toblini family lives here. He knows the area deeply: the members of the family were born and raised here and still live in the space of the Residence.
This guarantees not only a constant but discreet presence for any need 24 hours a day but also and above all the guarantee that this place that welcomes thousands of visitors every year is not just a tourist facility that gives a living. It’s home. It’s family, it’s a tradition that passes from generation to generation because when there’s love and care, we’re sure, there can only be family.
