Discover the true quality of life
Our Italy holidays this year offer a choice of no fewer than eight lakes. The three best known are Lake Garda, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, in northern Italy and are represented with a wide selection of hotels, and resorts of all kinds. New for 2018, we feature Folgaria and Lake Lavarone in the Alpe Cimbra region offering some great walks and excellent value with free lift passes and guided walks.
