Make holiday rental accommodation or an apartment in Lake Garda, Italy your home away from home

Lake Garda (Lago di Garda) is the largest and most picturesque lake in the whole of Italy. Located in the foothills of the Alps, Lake Garda holidays are some of the most peaceful and romantic holidays you can find, surrounded by colourful natural scenery. Lake Garda holidays have been an Italian favourite since the Roman era, and little has changed! However, there is far more to do on a Lake Garda holiday than you might initially imagine, as the natural landscape provides the perfect setting for many activities, sports and cultural trips. Due to the stunning combination of scenery, atmosphere, climate and leisure options, Lake Garda weddings are extremely popular, and the romance of the area is undeniable.

Things to do on holiday in Lake Garda, Italy

Almost any sport can be practiced on Lake Garda or in the surrounding area. The ideal conditions of the lake make sailing, windsurfing and scuba-diving a real pleasure. If you decide to try any of these during your stay in a Lake Garda apartment or villa then you can easily arrange both lessons and equipment hire from many stations around the shores of the lake.

The foothills of the Alps leading up to the mountains are also a favoured playground for adventure sports fans throughout the year, who descend on Lake Garda accommodation to practice their sport in testing and beautiful surroundings. During summer, groups of walkers, mountain bikers, climbers and paragliding enthusiasts can be found heading into the mountains to find their perfect spot, usually coupled with awe-inspiring views over the Venito Province. Routes and trail maps can be found from the Lake Garda tourist information centres.

There are also a huge number of other activities in the area, from the famous golf courses of Lake Garda to the clay-pigeon shoots and go-cart tracks which can be found in a selection of destinations around Lake Garda. Property here is hugely sought after by sports fans all year round.

However, you can easily take a self catering Lake Garda holiday apartment without having to get too active! There are a surprising number of elegant gardens, picturesque shopping streets and wonderful restaurants around the shores of Lake Garda to choose from, and the nightlife is amazingly vibrant for such a peaceful area. There is an enormous wealth of fun bars and cafes as well as a handful of clubs in which to dance into the early hours if you would like to.

It is well equipped, and in a very good location. The train station is five minutes walk, the town with all it's bars and restaurants about ten minutes away. The pool area is clean and well maintained. Thankyou Antonio for a lovely holiday, we will recommend the apartments to friends and family. Only issue is that we found the ironing board but no iron?

The property has everything you need from the glorious lake and mountain views, the short walk to Bardolino and the sparkling swimming pool. Roberto is a fantastic host and available when needed and we highly recommend this property if you are visiting Lake Garda.

We already felt as if we knew our host as there had been several email exchanges between us. Mauro was just what we expected; friendly, knowledgeable and hospitable. He gave us a tour of the complex and the surrounding area and looked after our every need. The apartment complex looks a bit dated but our apartment 118 was clean, spacious enough for 3 and had everything, I mean everything, we could possibly need for our stay. A fridge stocked with a section of drinks, a bowl of fresh fruit, condiments, towels, washing up liquid, fresh coffee, shower gel and plenty of toilet rolls to name but a few. The apartment was lovely and cool with air conditioning and there was a TV, laptop and Xbox. Our son was pleased with the WiFi connection so he could keep in touch with his girlfriend. The pool and pizzeria is reached by a short uphill walk, both have fantastic views.Always plenty of space in and around the pool. The lake can be reached via a private underpass and is lovely for an early evening dip. Garda itself is a very pleasant 15 minutes walk along the promenade. Set in very pleasant surroundings, a great location and a wonderful host, what more could you ask for.
