Situated in northern Italy, Lake Garda is the largest of all the Italian Lakes; with spectacular views, wine tasting tours and private boat trips to discover, your experience is sure to be something special.

In and amongst the dramatic mountain landscapes, hillside villages and elegant towns lining the stunning shores, Lake Garda's hotels are perfectly placed for a memorable holiday. You can bask in the mild Mediterranean climate from your luxury terrace and cool off in the refreshing waters of your crystal-clear swimming pool. Lake Garda's villas similarly provide a fabulous experience, some even featuring exclusive access to the beautiful beaches that surround the area.

From intimate breaks to memorable honeymoons, Lake Garda holidays for couples are simply sublime. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Malcesine or the cobbled streets of Limone sul Garda and savour a chilled limoncello. Whether you visit the picturesque town of Sirmione for its thermal baths or the enchanting town of Desenzano del Garda for a romantic walk, your relaxed adventure will be unforgettable.

Also unforgettable is the archaeological site of Grotte di Catullo, on the western shore, and the medieval castle of Rocca Scaligera, on the southern shore. Ideal for Lake Garda family holidays, the vast array of attractions - between the Palazzo dei Capitani di Malcesine and charming harbour of Peschiera - ensure you're always entertained. Not only that, but there are excellent theme parks on the lakeside while water sports such as canoeing, kayaking and water skiing are also available.

With soft white sands and incredible lake views seemingly everywhere you turn, Lake Garda beach holidays complete what is a magical Italian destination home to the most splendid experiences.
