We stayed here for a week at the end of June 2015 and found our hosts to be just perfect and our stay exceeded our expectations.
The property is situated around 6km from the nearest town and about 12 km away from the nearest town on Lake Garda. There is a local bus service which runs along the road a short walk from the B&B but for all practical purposes you are going to need your own transport to get anywhere. The room we had was the first room on the first floor, not en-suite but with it's own private bathroom big enough to hold a sizable party in! The shower pressure was on a par with a fireman's hose but there was no fixture to hold the handset in place whilst using the shower as it is intended to be used. The bedroom was simply furnished with a period wardrobe, table, bedside cabinets and two standard single beds. The beds I found to be on the hard side and the pillows although of excellent quality were not that supportive. Beds everywhere in Italy seem to be of the 'IKEA' style in that the support slats under the mattress are convex making the centre of the bed rather hard - as I said this seems general in Italy.
Breakfasts were adequate and I really appreciated the fried egg/scrambled egg option (extra charge of Euro 3.50) as I am not keen on sweet breakfasts that are the norm in Italy.
The B and B also offers an evening meal option at very reasonable prices given the excellent food freshly prepared and cooked to perfection by Roberto. The wines offered at the B and B are excellent and very reasonably priced but hey what no Peroni! We loved our stay at B & B Pegasos and would have no hesitation in staying there again should we be in the area.
The building is not suitable for wheelchair users who would find access difficult and as the building is around 300 years old it would be almost impossible to adapt the place. Those with limited walking ability might find the walk from the car parking area and the marble faced stairs difficult. However, Pegasos doesn't advertise itself as suitable for the disabled but I like to point this out in hopes of avoiding disappointment for those with mobility problems.

Although we arrived earlier than expected, Antonella and Roberto graciously welcomed us. Roberto was in the driveway to guide our, rather large, van into its parking spot.
The house is amazing...a combination of old beauty and modern conveniences. The bedrooms and baths were spacious, clean and well appointed. The breakfast(s) of homemade breads and muffins, filled croissants, jams and jellies, yogurt, juices and a LARGE pot of American coffee were plentiful and satisfying for us. Other choices could be prepared for a small fee.
Antonella and Roberto were perfect hosts, making sure that we were comfortable and happy. During our 2 night stay, they gave us recommendations for local restaurants. Both were excellent choices and did not disappoint. We walked to one ( our choice), armed with flashlights that they provided. The second night, Roberto, worried about our walking on the route, insisted upon driving us. AND arranged for the restaurant owner to drive us home. They also gave us suggestions for things to do, places to eat, directions for getting to Verona and Sirmione ( on Lake Guarda).
Our only regret was not having more chances to sit and talk with our hosts, sip more wine and enjoy the surroundings and beauty of Pegaso.
