The breathtaking glacial formation of Lake Garda, situated in the idyllic, stylish northern cuff of this boot-shaped country, is the largest lake in Italy and attracts throngs of visitors every year. They all fit, and despite the tens of thousands who stay at Lake Garda apartments annually, one gets a sense of primal discovery and peaceful seclusion while staying in Lake Garda accommodation. With such an extensive shoreline and such a wealth of holiday rentals, Lake Garda has room for everyone. Yet apart from the water sports, spa resorts and romantic relaxation, Lake Garda offers visitors a rich and creamy slice of one of the world’s most historic – and enjoyable – countries. Mix a carefree holiday here with ancient ruins, enchanting villages, warm Italian charm, the cool pristine glassiness of the spectacular blue lake and countless outdoor activities, and you’ve got one of the best holiday destinations imaginable. The charming villages and beach resorts spotted around the perimeter of Lake Garda only add to the allure. Garda is one of the loveliest areas in Italy and also one of the most beautiful upper Italian lakes.
Don't miss to visit the peninsula Sirmione during your Lake Garda holiday
Visitors to Italy will find self-catering holiday homes and apartments in Lake Garda all around the lake. Sirmione gets superb winds throughout the peak season, and is therefore the home base of the Claudio Lana Professional Surf Center, a place where beginners to windsurfing can get their feet wet, and seasoned pros can take off and catch some incredible air as the refreshing, yet stern breezes swoop in from Alpine heights. The increasing popularity of kite surfing has almost overshadowed the windsurfers, although Lake Garda is so large that everyone seems to coexist peacefully - even jet skiers, sail boats, canoes, swimmers and fishing enthusiasts will find plenty of room to enjoy their sport. After a long day on the water, visitors will find that there's no better way to relax than in the comfort of their private Lake Garda accommodation.
Plenty of excursions with Lake Garda apartments
If you decide to book your villa or apartment in Sirmione, you'll find plenty of tourist attractions to visit. Grotte di Catullo was, in its heyday, the biggest Roman settlement. Now it is a fascinating collection of ruins that beckons with its mysterious forms even from the water’s surface as you ferry by. Il Vittoriale is a bizarre, yet rewarding attraction as it combines the inherent strangeness of Italian fantasy constructions with the country’s profound past of culture and sophistication. Or if you're looking to go on a day trip from your Lake Garda holiday rentals then why not visit nearby Verona and see the romantic setting of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet? Lodging throughout the lake is a delightful experience, with luxury accommodation at waterfront spas and resorts regularly sought by international pleasure seekers.
