The Essence of the Italian Experience

Mild Climate and Lush Mediterranean Vegetation

The Lake Garda region is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and impressive natural regions in Europe. The view of the lake alone was worth a detour for Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.


For northern Europeans, Lake Garda has always seemed like a taste for paradise after the painful crossing of the Alps. The mild climate, lush mediterranean vegetation and picturesque villages in front of an impressive mountain landscape, which then passes into a gentle hillside covered with wine and olive trees, is still today the epitome of romantic Italy, the "country, In which the lemons bloom ".


With a length of 52 km, a depth of up to 346 meters and an extension of almost 370 km², it is the largest lake in Italy. At its widest point it measures 17 km and for the 158 km long circuit round the lake one should calculate by car a pure driving time of 3 to 4 hours.

Lake Garda South

The southern side of Lake Garda and the Province of Verona are in lovely contrast to the ruggedness of the nearby mountain peaks. Gentle hills with green vineyards and olive groves overlook a wide lakefront with easily accessible beaches. Even the water here is warmer than in the north. In the area there are stately villas surrounded by cypresses, bougainvilleas, oleanders and palm trees.


Hidden in the hills are traditional wineries. The remnants of Roman villas testify to the enjoyable lifestyle that has always characterized this lake side. The landmark of this culture is the peninsula of Sirmione, which extends like a narrow footbridge far into the lake. In the whole region there are fantastic golf courses and great possibilities for cycling and horse back riding. Places like Desenzano and Bardolino offer good opportunities for shopping and countless bars invite you to relax. Between Peschiera and Lazise, Gardaland and Canevaworld, the most popular leisure park in Italy and a favorite place for many families, are located.


The provincial capital of Verona is just a stone's throw away and invites you to go shopping and strolling through the old streets. The old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and offers a lot of cultural experiences with the familiar balcony of Romeo and Juliet and its amphitheater.


Many of our guests also use their holiday for a day trip to Venice. The lagoon city can be reached by bus, train or by car in less than two hours.
