Nestled high in the Alps and surrounded by the Dolomites, just over the border from Eastern Tyrol and next to Cortina d'Ampezzo in Veneto, the Province of Trentino offers visitors a myriad of opportunities to get out and enjoy life. Book a Trentino holiday cottage in winter and choose from skiing (downhill and cross-country), ski-mountaineering, snowshoeing, ice skating, curling, and sledding. Another popular location for winter sports such as skiing is in neighbouring Austria, so look for rentals in the region of Tyrol. If you're more into mountain biking, canyoning, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, paragliding, hiking, climbing, or golfing, book a private holiday home in Trentino and travel here during the summer. Whichever season you choose to visit, you're sure to be blown away by the view from your cottage of the sublime Trentino mountains. UNESCO recently declared the mighty Dolomites as a part of natural heritage. These mountains loom high and provide some truly spectacular views, which will undoubtedly be one of the many unforgettable parts of your stay in one of the cottages or Trentino holiday homes available.
Trentino rentals - relax in a cosy Trentino holiday cottage and enjoy Italy
The many Trentino holiday homes and apartments here provide a great starting place for your adventure. If you've noticed that Trentino feels different from the rest of Italy, you're not alone. The region's history as a former Austro-Hungarian county means that Trentino has a very distinct culture of its own, perhaps more Austrian than Italian, with its Alpine chalets and quaint rental properties and cottages that look like they're from the set of The Sound Of Music, and the jangling of cowbells from the valleys below. So it's not surprising that Austria and Switzerland, with its popular ski resort Graubünden, are located right at the border. Nature lovers will rejoice in this area, as the region is ripe with things to see and places to visit. Trentino houses some of Italy's most beautiful mountain lakes, including the spectacular Lake Ledro and the Tovel Lake, the largest in Trentino. The northern banks of the much-fabled Lake Garda also border on Trentino.
Trentino holiday cottages - magnificent landscape and tourist sights
Start out from your chalet and hike over to Trentino's three glaciers, passing a number of waterfalls, canyons, caves and wildlife preserves, as well as castles, ancient ruins, and forts on your way. After all this excitement, you'll want to visit one of Trentino's thermal water spas to relax, or unwind in the comfort and privacy of your Trentino rental property, taking in the gorgeous Alpine sunset from the balcony of your holiday lettings. For an unforgettable stay in Trentino you'll need the perfect accommodation, which you can find among the many self catering chalets, cottages and other holiday lettings in Trentino available here.
