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.

The enchanting town of Malcesine stands on the banks of Lake Garda, filled with ancient charm, and located at the base of many of the finest walks in the area.

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          This is a clean, well-equipped apartment that will undoubtedly make you feel like you are staying in a home away from home. It is in a very good location, within walking distance to the ferry port (which is how we arrived), minutes away from the bus stop (which is how we left, and also travelled to other towns), it has a convenience store practically metres away and a larger store near the bus stop (for a wider selection of products). However, what is absolutely great about the location the view from the main window/balcony. Sometimes it feels like something you would see on Pinterest blown up with a projector. But it is real. The mountains are real and extraordinary, the lake is a lovely clear (not polluted) and clean blue; but what stops this from being a photo on the internet is the sight of moving gliders in the air, the sailing boats in the lake and sound of chirping birds throughout the day. The apartment is very close to the beach/shore, where one can promenade down for kilometres - best done in the evening when the sun sets. Laura answered my questions promptly, with detail and it's this level of service that makes you glad that you rented an apartment rather than an ill-equipped hotel. One must not forget Anne, the caretaker, who was extremely helpful. She picked us up from the ferry port and provided us with a lot of information. She let us enjoy our holiday but was easy available if we did need help. As a deep sleeper, the sound of the convenience store's delivery cages did not bother me much, however it may affect someone who is easily awoken at night. I think that is the only fault I could pick, however this is one that Laura cannot control, and everything she has provided has been nothing below exemplary. I received my damage-deposit promptly once coming back to London. In London, I also have with me the great experience, amazing views, and the rare feeling when a short break feels like I've been away for ages. Thank you for letting us stay at your apartment.

                                                          We had a brilliant stay here, the apartment is spotlessly clean and very spacious. Angelo was very helpful, showed us everything in the apartment, a lovely man to deal with.A really short walk into town with everything you could want. We stayed for a week and tried lots of restaurants, we ate delicious food and the waiters were friendly. Will definitely return.

                                                          Amazing stay on Garda Lake

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We were two families (9 people in total) and we spent two beautiful weeks at this property. Amazing service provided from the housekeepers, lots of different indoor/outdoor spaces for both adults and kids, huge swimming pool and not to mention the breathtaking view on Garda Lake. Many different places to visit like Torri Del Benaco, Bardolino, Garda, where to find good restaurants, bars, and everything you need. The owner is always a phone call away if you need any tips during your stay. Many thanks for making our holidays so good
