Make a holiday apartment in Riva del Garda your home away from home

Surrounded by steep mountains and nestled on a crescent-shaped shore at the northern end of Lake Garda, Riva del Garda is one of its most picturesque spots. Sitting at the foot of Mount Rocchetta and Mount Baldo there are spectacular views at any time of year, but particularly in the winter when they are covered in snow. Wide, open beaches attract sunbathers and watersports enthusiasts, and the old town excites history buffs with ancient buildings and stories of its medieval past.

In a location that boasts beautiful views at every turn HomeAway has secured a collection of holiday apartments in Riva del Garda that offer fabulous outlooks of the lake, old town and mountains. Many are within easy reach of the water’s edge and come with such amenities as televisions, coffee makers, fridges and freezers. These rental properties can accommodate numerous guests, but for the visitor who wants something larger Riva del Garda holiday villas are also available. These spacious properties feature balconies, terraces and private gardens. Lake Garda is famed for its scenic beauty and watersports, which can also be enjoyed from HomeAway holiday properties in many other lakeside towns including Torbole and Arco.

Things to do

-Watersports: The town has two harbours and plenty of opportunities for watersports such as sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. With its proximity to the Italian Alps, visitors with holiday apartments in Riva del Garda can also go rock climbing and mountain biking.

-Museums: Riva del Garda’s museum and art gallery are housed inside a moated fortress called the Rocca. The museum contains an archaeological section that covers more than 100,000 years of history including exhibits about the Middle Ages. The gallery houses works by the 19th-century artist Giovanni Segantini, known for his landscapes of the Alps.

-Historic sights: A tour of Riva del Garda takes the visitor to a number of ancient buildings. The Apponale Tower is a tall clock tower dating from the 13th century and Inviolata is a Baroque church built in 1603. Other noteworthy historic sites are the Praetorian Palace and the Fort St. Nicholas.

-Beaches: With Riva del Garda holiday villas the visitor is free to enjoy some of the town’s most picturesque and peaceful beaches. These are Sabbioni, a large expanse with pebbles and grass, Pini, another pebble beach, and Miralago that's backed by lush green vegetation.

-Food and drink: What marks out Riva del Garda’s cafés and restaurants for mention is not only the food, but their locations. Many have lovely waterfront views while others can be found in the narrow, historic streets or lining Piazza III Novembre, the heart of the town.

Weather in Riva del Garda

It was clean and comfortable. It, however, was not what we have experienced with Homeaway previously. The apartment was managed by a local hotel. It was like a hotel suite with nothing which you need for self catering. It would have been good to have supplies of things like salt and pepper, oil, Kitchen roll, foil, cling film etc. 2 tablets for the dishwasher were supplied and we were there for 8 days! It is not feasible to buy these things for a short stay. The apartment is about 20-25 minutes walk from the nearest shops and restaurants which was fine in good weather. The couple of issues which we had were quickly sorted out by the hotel.

Villa Angelica was a really beautiful place to stay for our weeks holiday. We loved the apartment, umberto Eco,which was perfect for us with 3 good size bedrooms and a big living room with a spectacular ceiling. The swimming pool was a real luxury and very impressive at night with the different colour lights. The sun loungers are incredibly comfortable and we did enjoy our week of relaxing. The lake and town of Riva are approximately 15 mins walk away or 5 mins by bicycle. There was plenty to do in the area whether it be relaxing or cycling/walking in the mountains. The family were very friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome, rather like a big extended family. We would love to go back again.

The apartment was very clean and impeccably decorated. The grounds were delightful - the views - the statues - the flowers in the parklike setting were really amazing. Angelica, Rafael and Maria were very friendly and helped us with all details of the villa and getting to know the area. It was an incredible holiday - with so much to do in the town and surrounding area. We highly recommend a stay and we look forward to returning. Neil McKay
