Hotel Du Lac Et Du Parc

  • Lake Garda, Italy, Riva

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Du Lac et Du Parc has some of the best gardens on the whole of Lake Garda. When you walk out of the main building, you’re transported to a peaceful park with paths winding around the pools and tall trees providing shade. It leads all the way down to the lakefront. As you can imagine, there’s plenty of places to sit back and relax with a book – either by one of the two pools, on a secluded bench under a tree or next to the lake.

The hotel caters well for almost everybody. Families are more than welcome here and there’s a dedicated children’s pool for little ones to splash about in plus a playground and mini club. If you like staying active on holiday, you’ll love the tennis courts and watersports centre where you can organise surfing, kayaking and sailing (all are payable locally). Don’t forget to try out some of the walking and cycling trails around Riva, too. For the days when you need to relax, there’s the spa – we love chilling in the indoor pool and enjoying the views of the garden.

The hotel’s location is good – it’s about one and a half kilometres from the centre of Riva so it’ll take around 15 minutes to reach on foot. There’s plenty to do in the town. One of our favourite things is grabbing a coffee in a lakeside a café and watching the windsurfers on the lake.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Make sure you pack your sense of adventure for a holiday in Riva del Garda. This is Lake Garda’s most northern town and there’s mountains all around. Some of the best hiking and cycling trails start from here – Strada del Ponale is our favourite and you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the town and lake. For a more unique viewpoint, try some mountain climbing. Riva’s probably best known for its water sports and it’s not uncommon to see windsurfing competitions taking place throughout the summer. You can try it yourself while you’re there as well as sailing and scuba diving.

When you need to slow things down a bit you can stroll along the lake promenade or take a seat in the historic piazza. It’s pedestrianised and has a slight Austrian feel – you’ll find apple strudel and schnitzel on the menu in some cafés. The old town is lovely to walk around – think cobbled streets and flower-filled terraces. There’s lots of bars, shops and restaurants so it has an energetic atmosphere during the summer. We love the beaches here too. The large white pebbles spill into the clear lake and it’s almost impossible to resist a dip.

Our Venice Classic excursion allows you to explore the city with a guide as well as at your own pace. You’ll arrive there by coach and a water taxi transfer is included into the historic centre. You’ll also have the option to add on a gondola ride (payable locally).

Majestic Dolomites (full day)

We think the Dolomites are the most breath-taking part of the Alps and this excursion gives you the chance to embrace mountain life with one of our fantastic tour guides. It starts with a scenic drive through the exceptional South Tyrol, Val di Fiemme, Cavalese and Moena regions. You’ll then stop off at Passa Pordoi and take in the incredible views from this 2,000-metre-high vantage point. Then there’s some free time to explore the terrain at your own pace, either by taking one of the trekking paths or simply enjoying an Aperol at a refugio and taking in the views. A stop off at the chocolate box town of Ortisei is included on the way back to your hotel as well as plenty of stops for photo opportunities in this awe inspiring landscape.

Get ready to explore the best of Lake Garda on this excursion – there’s so much natural beauty and picturesque towns to discover. See the spectacular mountain scenery of the north and the sunny plains of the south. Travelling by both coach and ferry, the tour itinerary for this excursion varies depending on where you start but will usually follow the famous Gardensana road lined with fragrant olive and lemon trees to reach the likes of Malcesine, Sirmione, Salo and Limone.

Price: from £48 per person

Verona (full day)

Verona is one of Italy’s most charming little cities. This day trip dips into the romance of the medieval city, reliving the scenes from Romeo and Juliet while wandering around through the cobbled streets and past ancient buildings. The impressive 2,000-year-old Roman arena is one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world and is currently home to the Verona Opera, and the marble paved shopping street of Via Mazzini leads you to the stunning Piazza Delle Erbe. The handsome city mixes its rich past and modern present with great style.

Price: from £46 per person

Departs: Tuesdays and Fridays

Milan (full day, bookable locally)

Milan is one of the most stunning cities in Italy and has transformed what comes to mind when we think of the industrial landscape. This hive of activity and industry plays host to the heavyweights of haute couture fashion, art and baroque architecture. From the towering and awe inspiring Duomo to Da Vinci's Last Supper housed in the Santa Maria delle Grazie, a guided tour of Milan is to be missed.

Departs: Thursdays
