Affi

The farm house Riondel is located in Municipality of Affi   in the hinterland of Lake Garda, at the foot of Monte Baldo, between the morainic amphitheater of Rivoli and the lake, incorporating the characteristic relief of the Moscal Mountain (427 m) that suddenly rises on the plain. For some scholars, the name derives from a Roman legionnaire named Affius, but some recent research studies argue that it derives from the Germanic personal name Affi,  Lombard or  German origins. Important transition point for those who want to reach the magnificent Lake Garda, which is only a few minutes drive, Affi offers tourists the beauty of its natural environment and the convenience of several shopping centers.
