Thank to its peculiar position - on a plain between campione and Gargnano - on the west coast of the lake, with a wonderful view of the whole lake and of the opposite Mount Baldo, Tignale is one of the most charming destinations of Garda.

Michele, to the terraced slopes planted with olive trees between Piovere and Oldesio, to the wide grazings with fruit trees, thick woods, large valleys and steep cliffs, down to the lake, with the small haven and the ancient lemon tree plantation Prà de la Fam, which has been recovered and restored and is now a museum, where you can see the description of the many phases of lemon colture during the centuries.
Between sky and water. Among the nubby olive trees and through centuries-old holm oaks runs the well groomed road to Tignale - a conglomerate of many small hamlets, whose centre is Gardola.

Almost no dish is without olive oil. So the olive growers are here peculiarly attentive to the quality. The olives in Tignale traditionally derives from 100% biological colture. The ancient romans used to cultivate olive trees for getting oil. Still today the olives are hand-picked, but are then squeezed in a modern olive press, directly without storage. The oil of Tignale has a quite low acid content. As it has got an extremely balanced taste and velvety aroma, it is apt both with meat and fish.
Tignale is rich of truffles: here you find the ordinary black truffle (Tuber mesentericum), the special Perigord black truffle (Tuber melanosporum), the summer truffle and, with a little luck, the Burgundy Truffle (Tuber uncinatum).
A real experience for gourmets is the Truffle festival the first week of October.
