Our 11 Lake Garda resorts offer so much choice and variety. From bustling small towns like Riva and Peschiera to a quieter away-from-it-all Gardone Riviera; from the wide choice of accommodation in leading tourist centres like Bardolino or Garda in the South East to lovely Italian lakeside communities with relatively few hotels like Salò; from Limone, nestled away amongst the cliffs in the mountainous north to the fashionable lake promenade of Desenzano on the southern plain handy for Verona and Venice; or perhaps the fairytale Sirmione with its amazing location on a peninsula to Malcesine with the striking backdrop of Monte Baldo and maze of cobbled streets in the old town leading up to the Scaligeri castle. With such choice, you’re sure to find a lakeside holiday to suit you.
Desenzano combines a picturesque lakeside resort setting with the vibrant atmosphere of a thriving Italian community. Social life is focused on the many bars, cafés, pizzerias and restaurants in the historic centre and on the pedestrianised shopping area.More information
The bustling resort of Garda is on the Eastern shore of Lake Garda, where the lake broadens and the scenery becomes more gentle. Garda has a backdrop of hills, covered with olive groves, cypress trees and the famous Valpolicella vineyards.More information
Gardone Riviera is one of the main bays on the west coast of Lake Garda and consists of two elegant resorts; Salò and Gardone. Sheltered by the lakeside hills, its mild climate has long attracted visitors who want to relax and regenerate.More information
Nestling alongside lemon groves, beneath the cliffs of the north-western shore of Lake Garda, Limone is a picture postcard resort - an artist’s paradise. Houses covered in blossoming geraniums and bougainvillaea line the old, cobbled streets that lead up from the lakeside.More information
