How does that sound for a greeting on your next vacation? Of course, accompanied by a luminous environment, a temperate climate, olive, lemon groves, palms and cypresses, impressive cultural and historical remains, and clear blue water. If you need to feel a step closer to heaven, you need a holiday at Lake Garda.
Lake Garda is Italy's largest lake and also the most family oriented one, with beaches and low hills on one side, and steep mountains on the other. The area around the lake has a rather turbulent history and the well-fortified castles, Roman remains, and other historical sites pay tribute to it. The picturesque old town called Sirmione is beautiful to be visited from a last minute holiday home at Lake Garda, you enter it over a moat and on a drawbridge that takes you into the forecourt of a castle built in the 12th century. The Ruins of the Roman Villa at Grotte di Catullo are also worth seeing and if you get the chance. The Art Deco Villa of the poet Gabriele d'Annunzio is a must see when on holiday at Lake Garda, the rather bizzare décor, the ship Puglia which is imbedded into the hillside park, and other venues at this property are simply amazing.
Medieval villages and impressive castles, elegant villas and all sorts of events that take place among them, make for a cultural holiday at Lake Garda be a most memorable one. The Palazzo Bettoni in Gargnano dates back to the 18th century and it is one of the most beautiful ones at the lake. As for museums, you might want to take a peak at the Archaeological Historical Museum of Salo and the Historical Museum of Nastro-Azzuro in the same town, at the one in Sirmione of course, at the Garibaldi Museum and Hill S. Stefano even in Ledro. The Flea and Antique Market in Arco and the Sunday Antique Market in Bardolino are also of interest to most, as well as many other ones held in the lake-side towns. The churches in Salo are amazing, the “Madonna del Rio”, the Cathedral of Salo, and to all this you can also add a most spectacular view from a holiday villa at Lake Garda. You're in for a treat, we must say.
Nature sites at Lake Garda are in the very least amazing, starting with the views of the lake and then going on to the Andre Hellers Botanical Garden at Gardone Riviera, the Arboretum of Arco, the Campo di Brenzone and many others. Parks, nature trails, mountain farms, the high peaks of the Dolomites, the olive, lemon and orange groves... you are definitely one step closer to heaven when on holiday at Lake Garda. The mystical Isola del Garda is one that hosts luxuriant and unspoilt vegetation, and also a most impressive villa of the 19th century. Walk in the cypress and pine forests here and listen to the birds singing, it is a most serene experience.
A holiday at Lake Garda is a holiday of equilibrium, or rather of regaining a most perfect equilibrium of body and soul. The climate here, the harmony that this lake inspires, emit a most incomparable energy. The Sirmione Spas are famed throughout Europe, and a wellness holiday at Lake Garda within your already fabulous holiday here will prove so, if you visit them. The waters here are said to heal numerous illnesses and they also feed the new spa center called Aquaria. There is then the Garda Thermal Park where two pools of thermal water await for you among secular trees and a beautiful landscape.
With booking a last minute holiday apartment at Lake Garda you are like on a huge playground here, whether you are an adult or a child. Thus between the lake and the countryside, you can “play” all you like. Sailing and windsurfing at Riva del Garda are perfect activities for a summer holiday at Lake Garda, yet if you are more of a fan of greenery, try horse riding in the vicinity of the lake, or go mountain biking here. In Arco there is one of the best destinations for free climbing on the Old Continent, and there is even kite surfing and canyoning here. From the top of Monte Baldo, paragliding is a totally different “point of view”, one that will have you completely dazzled by what your eyes will be able to see. In winter, try skiing here. Diving in Arco can also be an option, as well as many other water sports and enjoying the beautiful beaches at Lake Garda.
Where would your family holiday at Lake Garda start? And here comes the children's answer: “at Gardaland”. As you say to yourself that this is of course a very predictable answer, think that the Gardaland is actually the largest amusement park in the country. It has rides, it has fairy tales, it has... fun! Several water parks, such as the Canevaworld, or the Picoverde, may be another answer. But what about animals? They are all so cute and curious for children and adults alike, so if you're up for the challenge of cuteness overload, try the Parco Natura Viva. Walks and water sports, horse back riding and all sorts of other activities complete the family fun scene at Lake Garda.
Italian food? “Yes, please”, would say about maybe 99,99% of the population on the Globe rather. And so we say that a culinary holiday at Lake Garda is a spoil of taste buds, a dip into “la dolce vita”, a simply must. The extra virgin olive oil here, the citrus fruit, the sweets and the “sweet attitude giving” Limoncino liqueur, are just heavenly ingredients of this fabulous experience. Pasta, seafood, fresh fish, pizza and all sorts of Italian specialties complement the great wines, or maybe it's the other way around: either way, you're in for a unique experience on your holiday at Lake Garda, accompanied by a bottle of Classico Groppello della Valtenesi or Nosiola, or whatever makes your heart content.
A holiday with your pet at Lake Garda is a lot of fun, but you already know that: you know that when you and Smootchie are up for a good time, there's nothing stopping you. And with renting a pet-friendly holiday home at Lake Garda, the setting for your fun filled moments is even more comfortable. A walk among nature or maybe a hike in the Monte Baldo, relaxing on a terrace or just hanging out on the beaches of Torbole, Lake Tenno and Ledro valley which are reserved for dogs... if not now, when? if not with Fifi, then... well, why even think of going without him/her if you even have a pet-friendly accommodation on your side? The game is definitely on, at Lake Garda.Points of interest, a “must see” list at Lake Garda:
