It has long been a favourite destination for romantic getaways due to the blissfully relaxed atmosphere, dramatic scenery, magnificent restaurants and wealth of activities.

Lake Garda itself is the perfect setting for sailing and boat trips across the clear waters. You can lay anchor and take a swim of find a secluded cove for a picnic at any time, or simply enjoy exploring the changing scenery as you move. Lake Garda villas have also become popular with windsurfers and scuba divers, keen to take advantage of the clear waters and reliable conditions.

On the shores of Lake Garda, the foothills of the Alps are the perfect setting for walking, paragliding, mountain biking and free-climbing.

Kite-surfing, wakeboarding and fishing are also hugely popular activities to enjoy from Lake Garda accommodation. After a long day of sport, how better to relax in one of the many health spas which surround the lake, and then home to a glass of local wine on the balcony of your Lake Garda villa, surrounded by breathtaking scenery?

All three are within an hour and a half drive, meaning that you can explore the many treasures of art and culture which they hold in a day and return to the blissful atmosphere and stunning scenery of your Lake Garda accommodation in time to see the sun set over the Alps.
