6.24 The awakening of the farm

An authentic farmhouse – with a real farm! – where animals are bred with care, passion and true respect. The day starts early, around 6 am, when the 25 Brown Swiss cows, representing the heart of Il Bagnolo farm, eagerly await to be milked. While fresh milk is heated in the kitchen before being served to guests for breakfast, for the cattle it’s time for the first meal of the day. The young calves are fed only from the fresh milk of cows, while the beef are particularly greedy of hay and alfalfa. The cute pink pigs are always very hungry, as well as bunnies and poultry. Meanwhile, the day goes on and it’s necessary to take care of the vegetables in the garden, as well as to do maintenance of the large forest, so useful for the precious firewood. Just the time to mow the lawn to perfection and is already evening again, ready for the second milking. And for a good, deserved night’s sleep!

10.45 Taking care of the vegetable garden

No forcing, no sophistication, only passion, hard work and a deep respect for the natural cycle of the seasons and the land. A good land, fertilized only with natural and mature manure from farm cows. A generous land, which offers every year its delicious fruits: eggplant, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, leeks, cucumbers, basil and fragrant herbs. Vegetables, particularly during the summer season, have a very important role in the proposals of the restaurant cuisine, in the form of fresh appetizers, sauces for fresh pasta or tasty side dishes. In addition, garden vegetables are used to prepare Il Bagnolo tasty jars to take away to prolong the pleasure of the palate even at home. Vegetables are processed entirely by hand, with particular times and methods. They maintain color and fragrance and become delicious preserves. Jars are made without any thickening agent, antioxidant or chemical preservative, only with the addition of extra virgin Garda olive oil, sugar and/or white wine vinegar. That’s another reason why Il Bagnolo Eco Lodge is a real, environmentally sustainable, farmhouse.  

15.20 Welcome to the guests

A road up on the hills, almost mountains, where the air becomes lighter and the stunning views of the blue lake appears among the hedges and cypresses; the last stretch of road, shaded by oaks that line the path, smells of the woods and flowers.

Lake Garda, in fact, is not only beaches and lemon trees. The rocks that fall vertically into the lake come from a direct-rugged mountains, whose peaks up to 2,000 meters are literally reflected in the water. “I live in an ever-green garden on the shore of the lake, and this nature gives me back the happiness”, Friedrich Nietzsche wrote in a letter in 1880, during a stay at lake Garda.
