The Lombardy region
Lake Garda is a beautiful part of Italy, with its own microclimate and a stunning scenery with olive groves, vineyards, breathtaking mountain backdrops and access to everything Italy has to offer: Venice, Milan, skiing in winter, sun in summer, culture, designer sophistication. The pretty lakeside town of Salo', strategically positioned on the Brescian riviera of Lake Garda and considered the "capital" of the western shore, is within easy walking distance, as are the beaches and nearby cultural attractions.
Lake Garda has a unique micro-climate, mild in the winter and hot and sunny in the summer, yet with a cool breeze coming off the lake.
Lake Garda is also Italy's largest lake, and the undoubted star of the Italian Lake district.
Lake Garda really has something for everyone. From sun to shopping, beautiful mountain scenery to the sun glittering off the clear, warm water, from skiing in winter to wakeboarding, kite-surfing, windsurfing and rock-climbing in summer; from opera and theatre to children's adventure parks Gardaland and Canevaworld... when you come to Lake Garda you can be sure of a holiday you will never forget.
Served by three airports (Verona Brescia, Verona and Bergamo) and backed up by the airports at Milan Linate, Milan Malpensa and Venice Marco Polo and Treviso airports, daily low cost flights can be found from every part of the UK. Ryanair also offers day trips to Rome, with a flight leaving daily at 8.30 am and returning in time for supper, meaning when you stay on Lake Garda a day trip to Milan, Venice, Verona or even Rome is an easily achieved reality. Why not visit the opera? The Arena di Verona is a short drive away and the historic open air amphitheatre offers an unforgettable experience.
If you feel like sticking closer to the home base, why not hop on a ferry and explore the lakeside towns of Lake Garda?
Watersports on Lake Garda are always popular, with the pretty lakeside towns offering sailing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, jet-skiing, kite-surfing, and scuba diving facilities.
If you visit between the months of November and April, day skiing trips are perfectly feasible: the nearest slopes are 40 minutes drive away and the world-class ski resort Madonna di Campiglio 1 hr 45 minutes drive.
In summer, hiking, mountain-biking, horse-riding and rock climbing is popular. There are dozens of walking trails in the mountains around the lake, mountain bikes can be hired and there are countless riding centres and tennis clubs.
The designer shops and boutiques, street cafes and bars, restaurants and trattorias offering home-cooked Italian dishes and the finest local wines at incredibly good value will appeal to everyone, especially in sophisticated towns such as Toscolano Maderno, Moniga del Garda, Desenzano del Garda, Gardone Riviera and Salo'.
If the kids get bored playing in the swimming pool, why not spend a few days exploring the theme parks at the southern end of Lake Garda? There are many huge them parks, including Gardaland, Caneva World, Aqua Parks and Safari Parks - you'd need a couple of weeks to get through them all!
Don't forget to relax, though, and drink in the unbelievable lake views with a glass of wine.
On site you can swim in the pool, sunbathe, walk or hike the many trails in the surrounding woods, or visit the town of Salò, the historic centre, beach and lakefront of which are a 5 minute drive. Within 30 - 40 minutes driving distance are the theme parks at the south end of Lake Garda (6 or 7 fun parks including Gardaland, water parks, movie theme parks and safari parks).
Within 15 minutes are several championship golf courses, watersports clubs (sailing, wakeboarding, kitesurfing and windsurfing). In winter ski day trips are possible - we can help you organize this.Venice is a 2 hour drive, Milan is a 1 hour drive and Verona is just 45 minutes away.
