Apartments at Lake Garda

A holiday apartment by the lake

If you are looking for a vacation rental on Lake Garda, you will find it on the densely populated southern shore of the lake, where in tranquil villages such as Desenzano del Garda, Paschiera del Garda, Lazise and San Felice del Benaco you will find numerous accommodations just a few hundred metres from the lake shore. A holiday apartment on one of the harbour and beach promenades not only promises a picturesque view of the lake with a breathtaking alpine panorama in the north, but also short distances to the ferry docks from where you can cross to the other shore or book one of the popular boat tours.

Living on the waterfront promenade

Both the more recent buildings and the lovingly renovated holiday apartments in the narrow alleys of the medieval town centres have modern furnishings and often even free Wlan and their own pool. You will find holiday resorts with these characteristics not only in the south, but also, albeit in smaller numbers, in the north and on the western shore of Lake Garda.

A vacation rental high above the lake

High above the steeply sloping eastern and western banks, serpentines carved into the rock meander the steep hills upwards. These are lined with sophisticated villas in Mediterranean style, which you can rent either as a whole or in one of them. Among pine and olive groves, you will reside high above picturesque places such as Riva del Garda in the north, Malcesine in the west or Tremosine in the east, and enjoy the La dolce Vita with an ice-cold Martini from the in-house swimming pool.

Travelers and Activities

Lake Garda for cyclists

The Mediterranean climate and varied topography make Lake Garda a Mecca for cyclists. Both the villages on the shore and the small mountain villages offer an ideal starting point for ambitious cyclists who want to circle the lake in front of a dreamlike scenery or steel themselves on the steep mountain roads such as the "Ponale" at 500 meters altitude for bigger tasks. Mountain bikers, on the other hand, feel particularly at home on the challenging trails on the slopes and in the hinterland and explore the secrets of the region as well as their colleagues on the road bike during guided tours. Thanks to numerous bike rental companies, who also deliver the rental bikes to your vacation rental or apartment, you can safely leave your own bike in your own cellar.

Lake Garda for families

Since the 1950s Lake Garda has been the epitome of family holidays in the sunny south of the country, which is mainly due to the picturesque beaches and the pleasant water temperatures, which invite you to splash around unrestrained. In addition to the possibility of exploring the region with its cultural sights with child, dog and hiking boots, the region offers a rich excursion program especially on the south coast. In addition to the Sea Life Aquarium in Castelnuovo del Garda, this applies especially to action-packed theme parks such as Movieland Park and Caneva Aquapark.

Lake Garda, with an area of 370 square kilometres, is the largest lake in Italy.

Top 5 travel tips for Lake Garda

Typical lakeside roads
Typical lakeside roads
Fortress of Mastino della Scala

The so-called Skaliger Castle is situated above Sirmione and is one of the landmarks of Lake Garda. The masonry, which is characterized by different architectural styles and is equipped with sculptures from several eras, you reach over 146 steps out of the village and enjoy from the top of the majestic fortress the view of the deep blue lake.

Regional specialities

Due to the border location between the northern Italian plain and the Alps, regional cuisine is characterised by the influences of both regions. This means that in addition to fish dishes, hearty specialities such as game with polenta and porcini mushrooms are also on the menu. Local specialities such as grilled beef with beans and onions (Carne Salada e fasoi) or spaghetti with fresh salted sea fish (Bigoi co le pessate salae) should also be tasted in one of the rustic restaurants. This is complemented by excellent regional wines such as Teroldego.

Jungle Adventure Park

If you want to experience an adventure with your whole family during your holiday, the Jungle Adventure Climbing Park in San Zeno di Montagna is just the place for you. On courses of different difficulty levels young and old get their money's worth, while suspension bridges, ropes, fishing nets and chain bridges have to be overcome.

By boat to Isola del Garda

Even in Roman times, the Isola del Garda, a few hundred metres from Cap San Fermo, was a place of pleasure with temples, gardens and country houses. Today, the well-kept English and Italian gardens and the villa framed by cypresses attract countless visitors and invite them to stroll in front of the Venetian walls. From May to October, concerts by well-known performers are also held there.

Climbing high with the Costa Bella Lift

The Costa Bella lift will take you up to the top of the mountain just a few kilometres from your vacation rental on the western shore of Lake Garda. From the valley station in Prada you can take the chairlift up to the summit station Costa Bella, from where you can enjoy a unique view of the lake or alternatively dare the two-hour ascent to the 2190-metre-high Refugio Telegrafo.

Things to know

Best travel time

Thanks to the mild temperatures almost all year round and the low rainfall, Lake Garda is worth a trip all year round with the exception of the cold winter months of January and December. Cyclists sometimes find good conditions for training trips already in March and April as well as in October. Due to the maximum daytime temperatures of 23 to 29 degrees Celsius on average and up to ten hours of sunshine, the optimal travel time for bathers is between May and September. Due to the high demand you should book your vacation rental for the high season as early as possible.

Regular events

Almost every town on Lake Garda offers a colourful programme of events throughout the year. The spectrum ranges from sporting highlights such as the Lake Garda Marathon in October and the Giro del Trentino cycle race, which stops there regularly in April, to culinary festivities, which are usually celebrated in Italy. These include the Pumpkin Festival in September, the San Martino Wine Festival in August, the Truffle Festival in October and the Broccoli di Torbole Festival in December. The programme is rounded off by the traditional wine barrel rolling and the Mediterranean city festivals.
