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 run around 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 two 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.
