Discover the true quality of life
Our Italy holidays this year offer a choice of no fewer than seven lakes. The three best known lakes in Italy, Garda, Como and Maggiore, nestled against the northern mountains in Italy and are represented with a wide selection of hotels, and resorts of all kinds. We also feature Lake Orta, famously described as "Where the Alps meet Heaven", and Lake Ledro, one of the smallest but most charming Italian lakes. Less well-known Lake Trasimeno is on the Umbria/Tuscany border; a lovely base from which to explore this historic region.
Lake Iseo is perfect for anyone looking for lakes in Italy where it's a little quieter and less developed. For spectacular mountains in Italy scenery, head for the Dolomites where we offer stays in sophisticated Merano, Selva, and La Villa from where you can access endless panoramic walking trails. New for Summer holidays in 2016 we have introduced Pescasseroli, a charming village surrounded by the unspoilt, natural beauty of Italy lakes in the little known Abruzzo National park. Italian Alps summer holidays are sure to offer you a taste of excellent Italian food, culture and gorgeous scenery. Stay in superb hotels in Italy to top this holiday off, ensuring you have a comfortable summer holiday in Italy.
Inghams has always offered the widest range of quality hotels and for summer 2016, we’re pleased to continue with our very own Chalet Hotel Galeazzi, the Chalet Hotel Breithorn set in the pretty village of Champoluc in the glorious Monte Rosa Alps and the Chalet Hotel Al Pigher in La Villa.
